And every Christmas and Easter Holy Week, they go back to their villages in the altiplano,” Letona said. “We have a turnover of only 0.85 percent per month, and each harvest, nine out of 10 of our cortadores want to come back.”Not that they have much of a choice.Guatemala, with the highest proportion of indigenous people of any country in the Western Hemisphere, also ranks as one of Latin America’s poorest. Its 15 million inhabitants have been ravaged by civil war, and much of Guatemala’s wealth is concentrated in the hands of relatively few families – as was Cuba’s before the 1959 revolution that brought Fidel Castro to power.Under Guatemalan law, all workers have the right to form unions – as long as a minimum of 28 workers petition for one – but so far, only one of ASAZGUA’s member companies, Palo Gordo, is unionized.This is but only one factor that explains how Guatemala has become the largest sugar exporter in Central America and the third-most productive sugar producer in the world after Colombia and Swaziland.In the 2011-2012 harvest, Guatemala exported 1.65 million metric tons of sugar – more than Cuba’s entire sugar crop, and more than the sugar exports of El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica and Panama combined.Guatemala now ranks as the world’s fourth largest sugar exporter, after Brazil, Thailand and Australia, according to the International Sugar Organization, while Cuba ranks seventh, just ahead of Colombia.But when it comes to productivity, Guatemala’s performance is even more impressive. In 2008, according to ASAZGUA figures, Colombia led the world in productivity, with 14.6 tons of sugar per hectare under cultivation, followed by tiny Swaziland (13.9) and then Guatemala (12.2).The next nine countries, in descending rank for productivity, were Australia, Sudan, China, Brazil, Mexico, United States, India, Thailand and South Africa. Cuba wasn’t even on the chart.In 2012, sugar exports to the United States, Canada, South Korea, Mexico, Chile, China, Taiwan, Bangladesh and other customers generated $843.7 million in foreign exchange for Guatemala and employed 350,000 people, 73,000 of them directly. That ranks just behind coffee ($955.9 million) in terms of importance for the country, but well ahead of Guatemala’s two other key agricultural exports: bananas ($469.9 million) and cardamom ($250.3 million).Sugar today represents 14.4 percent of Guatemala’s total exports, 27.1 percent of its agricultural exports and 3 percent of its gross domestic product.“Something elemental we’ve done is to give workers dignified, decent jobs so that they’ll feel content with what they’re doing,” Letona said. “You’ll see the same at any ingenio [sugar factory]. In Cuba, a cortador doesn’t want to cut sugar because he won’t earn any money. Here, workers have the possibility of improving their standard of living.”In Cuba, by comparison, an average machetero earns the equivalent of $40 a month, plus a “stimulus” bag containing two bars of soap, a bottle of cooking oil and some pasta. Cengicaña’s general director, Mario Melgar, says Guatemala has the “recipe for success.” Melgar partly credits the 1992 establishment of Cengicaña, which has 75 employees and operates on a $2 million annual budget.“Before that, each ingenio did its own R&D,” he said, noting that Cengicaña is one of only six sugar research centers financed by the private sector (the others are in Australia, Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador). “Each sugar producer pays a quota depending on its production.”In the 21 years since Cengicaña’s creation, it has introduced 1,875 sugar varieties to Guatemala (including 1,155 brought from Florida, 164 from Mexico, 120 from Brazil, 60 from Barbados, 58 from Australia and Louisiana each, 54 from Cuba and 53 from Puerto Rico).Guatemala now cultivates 235,000 hectares of caña, mainly in the departments of Escuintla, Suchitepéquez, Retalhuleu and Santa Rosa.Boesche, a 73-year-old ASAZGUA executive, works from a wood-paneled office on the 19th floor of the swanky Euro Plaza skyscraper. He’s headed the organization for the past 27 years. During that time, he says, Guatemala’s area under cultivation has tripled, while yield has jumped from 66.3 tons per hectare in 1984-85 to 95.4 tons per hectare today.Daily milling capacity, meanwhile, has nearly tripled from 53,093 tons in the 1984-85 season to 151,673 tons in 2011-12.“Guatemala is a small country, not like Brazil or Colombia, so productivity for us is very important,” Boesche said proudly. “With what we export, we could supply all of Central America, including Panama.”In the next parts of the series, we look at Guatemala’s banana, coffee and African palm industries. But I did see all that, and more, in the company of Fundazucar’s assistant director, Griseldo Say López, and ASAZGUA spokesman Otto René Estrada.What became clear to me after a morning tour of Guatemala’s third-largest sugar operation, followed by a presentation by the Centro Guatemalteco de Investigación y Capacitación de la Caña (Cengicaña) and a late afternoon meeting with ASAZGUA’s president, Armando Boesche, is that when it comes to efficiency and productivity in the sugar industry, the rest of Central America has a lot to learn.According to Estrada, Guatemala’s competitiveness in the sugar industry is based on three elements: “productivity, R&D and technology.”“We offer the best working conditions possible, because this translates into better productivity,” said Estrada, whose organization was founded in 1957 to represent Guatemala’s sugar interests. “All this is based on social responsibility. In an industry as competitive as sugar, we have to respect our workers. This is fundamental.”Guatemala has seen similar success with its coffee, banana and winter vegetable exports. It is now becoming a major exporter of African palm oil, an edible oil that also is used to manufacture biofuels.As human resources manager at La Unión, Fernando Letona is in charge of the well being of 2,800 sugar workers.“They’re very graphic,” Letona said, as we gazed at the huge banners tacked on the walls of Tehuantepec barracks, which are home to some 400 cane-cutters, known in Spanish as cortadores de caña. La Unión has four more barracks just like Tehuantepec, each with their own dormitories, clinics, dining rooms and exercise areas.“All these workers have come from the altiplano,” or high plains, he said. “Work hours are 6:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., with a 15-minute rest in the morning and half an hour for lunch. Breakfast and dinner are served in the comedor, while lunch is served in the field, from food trucks.”Letona said that feeding workers well results in higher yields.“Before we invested in all this, each cortador was cutting 2.5 tons per day. Now they cut 6-7 tons, and some up to 12 tons,” he said. “It’s evident that this investment has had positive effects on productivity.”Workers normally earn 3,800 quetzales ($485) per month, which translates into Q21.60 ($2.75) per hour, he said. That doesn’t include fringe benefits, which come to 42 percent of wages. After taxes and social security, workers keep an average of Q3,500, or $450 per month.

first_img Banking Senate Committee Fannie Mae FHFA Freddie Mac GSEs homes HOUSING Mark Calabria 2019-02-14 Radhika Ojha in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Calabria: Committed to Making FHFA a “World-Class Regulator” February 14, 2019 3,859 Views center_img On Thursday, the Senate Banking Committee conducted a hearing on the nomination of Dr. Mark Calabria as Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency(FHFA) along with the nominations of Bimal Patel, of Georgia, to be an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury; Todd M. Harper, of Virginia, to be a Member of the National Credit Union Administration Board; and Rodney Hood, of North Carolina, to be a Member of the National Credit Union Administration Board.The Trump administration announced Calabria’s nomination to head the FHFA in December. He is currently the Chief Economist to Vice President Mike Pence. If confirmed, Calabria would have significant influence over the housing finance market at the FHFA.Opening the proceedings for the hearing, Sen. Mike Crapo, Chairman of the Banking Committee said, “FHFA can also play an important role in helping us move toward a more sustainable housing finance system facilitated by an engaged and strongly capitalized private sector.””All the nominees today, if confirmed, have the opportunity to improve American lives, they can make it easier for families to buy homes with mortgages,” said Ranking Member Sen. Sherrod Brown during his opening remarks.While his prepared remarks didn’t mention the current administration’s goal of the privatization of the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Calabria addressed these issues during his discussions with the Committee. Calabria said that if he was confirmed as Director of the FHFA his role would be to “carry out the clear intent of Congress, not impose my own vision.”Giving an outline of what his priorities would be if confirmed, Calabria said that a number of critical elements were needed in reform such as a “greater need for competition.” He said the current FHFA mandate was clearly where “the regulator cannot make such changes.” As a result, he said, “The very broad changes that have to happen in the mortgage finance system have to be done by Congress.”Calabria said that if he was confirmed as the FHFA Director his objective would be to ensure the GSEs were, “well capitalized, well managed, and well regulated.”He also clarified the reports on FHFA Acting Director Joseph Otting’s remarks on the privatization of the GSEs, saying that the remarks were made more to raise the morale of the staff at FHFA than anything else. “My read of what I believe he said was to convey a sense of urgency to the FHFA staff. What he referred to in the terms of me signing off was my longstanding loud support for housing finance reforms. I believe he was conveying to the staff through a pep talk that we will move forward,” Calabria said.Before his nomination for this post, Calabria told the committee that he was involved in conversations around December 2017 that allowed a $3 billion cushion for the GSEs and had supported the amendment of allowing a “modest capital buffer so that we would not have to force a draw, partly because of the impact of the tax reform or the deferred tax losses being held by the GSEs.”Addressing his views on the affordable housing goals Calabria said that his past concerns with affordable housing goals were in the context of “two large institutions with zero capital.” However, he added, “I do believe we can get to a spot where we can have risk-taking via affordable housing goals if we can have an appropriate regulatory structure that has capital backing those goals. I’m very concerned about any large financial institution where we push it to take an additional risk without the appropriate regulatory structure in place.”Clarifying his comments on getting rid of the GSEs in the past, he said that they were essentially pointed towards getting rid of the model of privatize gains and socialize losses. “I believe all large financial institutions need to be well capitalized more managed, more regulated, and I believe the GSEs were “none of the above” before the crisis. My concern is the fundamental model of the heads of Fannie and Freddie walk out with a lot of money while the rest of us get holding the bag. I want these entities to be good corporate citizens, I want them to be the model of how other corporation should want to behave.”Answering a question on the role of the FHFA if the housing market faced another crisis, Calabria said, that it was appropriate for the FHFA to offer assistance to affected borrowers and that “we should recognize and applaud the efforts of Ed DeMarco for the wide-based forbearance that was done by FHFA during the past crisis.” However, he stressed that the agency needed to “approach different borrowers differently” and that the mortgage market should set an expectation for those who can pay, should pay and “focus our efforts on those who can’t pay and need assistance.””FHFA is absolutely necessary,” Calabria said while answering a question on why he wanted to take up this job, despite his past remarks. “In fact, I want to raise the stature of FHFA. I remember how the employees at its predecessor felt and their inability to stand up and be able to do effective financial regulation. I’m committed to seeing turning FHFA into a world-class regulator.”He also gave his views on the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage saying that it was important to have the 30-year rate and that he intended to keep it that way.Click here to view the full testimony.

Switzerland’s Stan Wawrinka survived a scare from Slovakia’s Martin Klizan on Monday fighting back from a break down in the final set to move into the Australian Open second round with a 4-6 6-4 7-5 4-6 6-4 victory “It was a big fight tonight” 2014 champion Wawrinka said on court after the match “[The comeback] came from fighting every day on and off the court It was a great atmosphere here and I am happy to be back He was playing well he was close to winning It was a tough match” It took the world number four more than three hours to subdue his left-handed opponent to cries of “Allez Stan” from the crowd in the Margaret Court arena For long periods of the match Weawrinka was far from his best with errors flowing from his racket But as a pink dusk descended Wawrinka slowly found the range on his groundstrokes to move ahead although the outcome remained in the balance until the final few minutes Klizan who had chances to win the second set looked favourite when he broke to lead in the decider but Wawrinka doggedly held on and broke from nowhere to make it 4-4 In the following game he struck the 35th ranked Klizan with a ferocious forehand from point-blank range — immediately jumping over the net to check on his winded opponent Serving to stay in the match Klizan had no luck with a challenge at 30-30 — the replay showing Wawrinka’s flashing winner had found a line — and the Slovak bowed out when he netted a forehand on Wawrinka’s first match point It preserved Wawrinka’s record of never having lost in the first round of the Australian Open although it was a close call The Swiss will face American Steve Johnson next “For sure it’s a big relief especially when you’re a break down in the fifth 4-3 40-15 So I’m really happy to get through” US Open champion

is the prime criterion of a selling proposition Human society development always happened with excellence of functional upliftmenteg from stone lithography copy to carbon copy to cyclostyling to photocopy to digital scan reproduction shows functional upliftment where better technology easily makes the old obsolete The key factor is rationalwhich Ive found very difficult to make people here understand Rational means non-visible quality support for emotive and functional attributes to sustain product longevityeg in the hospitality industryif a hotel uses sophisticated German sanitaryware but maintenance is pooryou have to close your nose to get rid of the stink This totally bypasses the rational factor in the service industryand mitigates the heavy spend on sanitaryware to look good I dont believe people regularly buy a product or service based on emotion through its ad or sophisticated presentation Customer believability for repeat purchase lies on sparkling quality thats non-visible Quality is the assurance of the products functionality during its lifecycle So you need to define QCW (quality customer wants) specific to your brand Shombit Sengupta is an international

Paraskar” that must be understood and digested by the people of Mumbai They have heard of police reforms and they have understood those reforms to mean increased manpower better training better equipment polite behaviour and professional competence in tackling crime and criminals Everyone wants the police to be more polite in their dealings with the people and more professional in their work but people must realise that this is possible only if there is an honest and competent leadership that is installed at the cutting edge and at the very top These leaders should be allowed operational freedom to direct their men in the daily performance of the tasks entrusted to them L’affaire Paraskar should open people’s eyes to the fact that the police force that is supposed to serve them is spending precious time on private pursuits and that too by misusing the authority vested in them by virtue of their office Sunil Paraskar could allegedly dare to indulge in what Mulayam Singh Yadav has called the “boy’s game” because the fear of reprisals for bad behaviour is no more present in a policeman’s mind Every police officer has a pipeline to some politician or other And it is the politician and not the professional police leader who has the last word in disciplinary matters Paraskar I learned had many godfathers He hardly ever moved out of Mumbai city during his entire career His one posting to Nagpur was short His Herculean efforts to return to Mumbai quickly succeeded In the past no officer was inducted into the city unless he went through the grind in the districts This writer did 15 years in different districts like Broach Kolhapur Nasik Jalgaon Parbhani Nanded Sholapur and Pune before he was appointed deputy commissioner in Mumbai After four years in the city he was sent on a six-year deputation to Hyderabad and Delhi before returning The system of rotating postings is meant to avoid the accumulation of vested interests The government is aware of these pitfalls and makes the correct noises from time to time but never acts because of pressures exerted by sundry politicians on their minister friends Most police officers have perfected the art of cultivating the correct patrons to ensure their continued stay in places of their choice To neutralise this process of politicisation of the force where policemen and politicians keep scratching each other’s backs the National Police Commission of 1979 had recommended certain measures to ensure that postings and transfers were not left in the hands of politicians alone This essential reform has been rejected by all political parties Each party wants to control the police for its own political advantage at the cost of the rule of law Unless the power to post and transfer is removed from the hands of the politicians there is no chance of any improvement in the delivery system and no silver lining to be seen for the common man Another fact that is not known to the general public but closely connected to this whole gamut of patronage politics is the direct recruitment to the senior ranks through the State Public Service Commission and not through the Union Public Service Commission which recruits IAS and IPS officers These state recruits whose number is increasing alarmingly are absorbed into the IPS after eight or 10 years Because there are so many of them to be accommodated when they are due for promotion new not-required nondescript posts are created at senior levels Many senior posts have no job content and constitute a burden on the exchequer What is worse is the bitterness and infighting that arises because each wants what they themselves call “creamy postings” where illegal money can be made Only cadre officers that is those who have been absorbed into the IPS can hold certain jobs like superintendents of police in the districts This rule is being widely disregarded in order to accommodate the state officers who are very often related to politicians by blood or through community linkages This results in significant distortions in the way the force is run and administered In the old days only one or two officers were recruited directly as deputy superintendents of police every year Their calibre was very high Now the state has been known to absorb even 50 or more in a year making a mockery of the process of cadre management The politicians will have distributed patronage thereby but the people ultimately suffer L’affaire Paraskar should open their eyes The writer a retired IPS officer was Mumbai police commissioner DGP
