EU Shipowners Call for Decisive Actions against Unfair Trade Practices


first_imgEuropean shipowners and maritime technology industry have called for decisive actions against unfair trade practices and in favour of global playing field.Namely, trade associations representing European shipbuilding and maritime equipment and European shipowners, SEA Europe and ECSA, have called upon the European Commission and the EU Member States to take concrete and decisive actions against such practices and in favour of a true global level playing field for the European industry.“Market-oriented conditions, rules-based trade, and open markets are essential to allow European shipping, shipbuilding and marine equipment companies to operate internationally,” ECSA said.EU Trade Commission Cecilia Malmström, who recently spoke against unfair trade practices in the Far East, stressed that the European Commission “will do what is necessary to shield European shipowners, European shipyards and European maritime equipment manufacturers from the negative impact from competitive distortions resulting from massive subsidies from China and South Korea.”The Commissioner also underlined that the European Commission is paying close attention to South Korea’s recent support measures in favour of its local shipyards, which “could also be significant”.“The latest support measures from South Korea are clearly an example of unfair competitive distortions,” SEA Europe Secretary General Christophe Tytgat said.As explained, the country has contributed to severe overcapacity in merchant shipbuilding and merchant shipping, with consequences for all market players, first for European shipbuilding and also for European shipowners and the entire maritime value chain.“Europe now needs to be vigilant that the same unfair trade practices with the same potential devastating effects are not repeated in other shipbuilding and shipping segments,” Tytgat added.“At a time that protectionist trends are rising, we ask Europe to send a strong message in support of free, fair and rules-based trade,” ECSA Secretary General Martin Dorsman said.last_img read more

Wolves announce new Nuno Espirito Santo contract


first_img Loading… FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Wolverhampton Wanderers announced a new long-term contract for Nuno Espirito Santo, the bearded maestro who led the club into the Premier League and deep into the Europa League. Only Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, and Chris Wilder have been with their Premier League clubs longer than Espirito Santo.

It’s a commitment that you make yourself, to each day have a chance to help to do something good. How far? Tomorrow is how far we want to reach, to be better than yesterday and the next day, and the next day. We’ll see, but in terms of how we want to do things, we want to play better, how we can do things, working very hard like we do. Dedicate every moment to give the best of each one of us every moment.” How far can Wolves go with Espirito Santo? They’ve so far managed to keep hold of Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez amongst a bevy of top players. The 46-year-old ex-Porto boss was the steady hand required when Wolves launched themselves several steps ahead of plan in qualifying for the UEL last season. There wasn’t an ounce panic with a slow start to the PL season and Espirito Santo massaged his squad through the congested season and nearly back to the UEL. The new deal runs through the 2022-23 season and will ward off suitors or at least insure the club against those hoping to poach Espirito Santo and bring him to their club.Advertisement Promoted ContentThailand’s 10 Most Iconic LandmarksWhat Happens To Your Brain When You Play Too Much Video Games?10 Phones That Can Work For Weeks Without Recharging9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoo10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoBrother Creates A Phenomenal Dress For His SisterThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Poyet in challenge to prove worth


first_img Press Association The 45-year-old Uruguayan inherited a squad in turmoil when he took over from Paolo Di Canio at the Stadium of Light last month, and is still assessing what he has at his disposal. Poyet hinted earlier this week that he was not entirely convinced by a summer transfer policy which saw the Black Cats lose Simon Mignolet, Stephane Sessegnon and loan signing Danny Rose and recruit 14 new players under director of football Roberto De Fanti. Gus Poyet has told his Sunderland players they still have time to clinch a place in his long-term plans. However, as he prepares to deliver his verdict on the squad when the recruitment team meets to discuss the way forward during the forthcoming international break, he admits his views are changing all the time. He said: “It changes, I won’t say daily, but the most important part for me is Saturday at 3pm. “When a player performs on Saturday at 3pm – people will say to me Wednesday, 7.45pm, Tuesday, I think it’s 2.05pm this Sunday – but that’s the most important thing. “Yes, we make sure that they train well, we make sure that we do all the basics, but at the end of the day when it matters is Saturday at 3pm. “That’s when I learn the most for when I take my decisions and write my report about every single player, if we need and where we need [strengthening]. “I am going to have a meeting, it’s going to be next week or the beginning of the following week, so then I will know everything. “It’s going to be either this week or the beginning of the following, but it’s going to be in the next two weeks, for sure.” In the meantime Sunderland, who put their Barclays Premier League difficulties to one side in midweek to book a Capital One Cup quarter-final clash with Chelsea, face the task of attempting to drag themselves out of trouble against title contenders Manchester City on Sunday. Manuel Pellegrini’s men will head for the Stadium of Light having scored 14 goals in their last three games in all competitions, seven of them against Norwich last weekend. Poyet has urged his side to have greater belief on the ball and was delighted with the way they retained possession to pave the way for their midweek cup victory over Southampton. He knows the challenge will be different against City – the Saints made 10 changes for their trip to Wearside – but he is hoping for more of the same. He said: “It’s a different proposition, but if we give it to them, we are not going to get it back, for sure, so we need to be brave. “We are not going to take silly risks. In plenty of situations where we were not able to pass the ball or keep it, we are going to try to keep it a little bit better than we have been used to.” Poyet will be without suspended duo Lee Cattermole and Andrea Dossena, who were both sent off in the 1-0 defeat at Hull last Saturday, but keeper Keiren Westwood has recovered from a blow to the head and is ready to compete with Vito Mannone once again. Defender Wes Brown made his first competitive start for the club in more than 21 months on Wednesday evening, and he too is vying for a place. Poyet said: “At the time I arrived here, he was not training every day, but then he started training every day and he found it easier. “He asked to play a couple of games in the reserves behind closed doors and then he was putting himself on the line for us to pick him. “Now he is in and it’s up to him to stay there and stay fit and help us to get out of this situation.” last_img read more


Howard facing up to six weeks out


first_img Press Association Joel Robles, who was with Martinez at Wigan, is deputising and, while the Toffees boss is happy with him, he may look to bring in another stopper. “I thought Joel was very calm against Stoke and did well against Newcastle. But we will assess whether we need cover,” the Spaniard added. Martinez said Howard’s injury was unsual and admitted that it was a big blow to lose a player of his experience. “He’s picked up a calf injury in his left calf and that’s something that as a goalkeeper is really unusual. It happened just kicking the ball against Stoke. ” Tim is going to be a huge miss, not just on the pitch but being around the place and having the calmness that he gives to the younger players and the know how that he brings to the dressing room. “Tim is a big game player. When he plays for the national team in tournaments and when he plays for us he’s used to that scrutiny and responsibility and he just embraces it. “That’s something that we need to have spread out throughout the squad. We need that big game, big team mentality and (to) cope with the expectations and whatever surrounds the performance.” Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard will miss the next five to six weeks with a calf injury, manager Roberto Martinez has said.center_img The American missed Sunday’s loss at Newcastle with the injury suffered against Stoke on Boxing Day, and is now set to miss out until well into 2015. “Tim Howard will be out between five and six weeks with a calf injury,” Martinez said at his press conference ahead of the New Year’s Day game against Hull. last_img read more
