Formore free photos, visit the image library)Janine ErasmusSouth Africa is one of five wine-producing countries to join forces to form the New World Wine Alliance. The alliance plans to challenge European Union (EU) rivals under this banner. Europe is currently the world’s largest wine producer and exporter.So-called New World wines are produced outside the traditional European wine-cultivation areas in countries such as South Africa, Argentina, Chile, the US, New Zealand, Mexico, and Australia, which is the current market leader in the UK.The new alliance includes South Africa, New Zealand, California, Chile and Argentina – all of which will use their partnership as a marketing tool to further penetrate the global wine market and see off competition from European countries.This does not negate the fact that the five countries are still competitors in the market, but an alliance spokesperson said that all members will ultimately gain by sharing experience and best practice.“We have already benefited from each other enormously by exchanging viticultural and cellar research as well as innovations in packaging, marketing and logistics,” said the spokesperson.Official launchThe group will be officially launched at the next Prowein international wine and spirits trade fair, taking place over three days in Düsseldorf, Germany, in March 2010. In a world first, they will also exhibit their wines there as a joint force.The annual wine showcase, one of the most important trade shows on the wine calendar, attracted around 3 000 exhibitors in 2009, along with about 35 000 delegates and visitors from some 50 countries. Press coverage was extensive, making Prowein the ideal platform to launch the new wine alliance.Not only will the partners be exhibiting at the same pavilion, but together they will hold talks, seminars, presentations and workshops with relevant experts in the field.The pavilion’s theme, Down to Earth, suggests the main issues to be covered: sustainable wine production, management of scarce natural resources, management of climate change, cool-climate viticulture, organic wines, as well as market-related topics such as branding, building consumption sales, and icon wines, or wines of exceptional quality.Eastern focusAustralia has not joined the alliance because it has shifted its focus to the East. China is the world’s biggest single wine market in terms of population, as it is for beer, and the demand there for wine is growing. It is also the world’s sixth-largest wine producer.A 2008 report issued by China Wines Information predicts that wine imports into China will top US$870-million (R6.8-billion) by 2017 – a five-fold increase from the 2007 figure of $184-million (R1.4-billion).Challenging the EUMeanwhile, the New World Alliance will stand together as a unit to rattle EU winemakers. In 2006 the EU proposed a shake-up of its wine sector, prompted by growing competition from the New World, dwindling wine consumption in the region, and a fear that imports would eventually outstrip exports.New regulations were adopted by the EU Council of Ministers in April 2008, and are set to revamp the way the EU wine market is managed. The main focus areas are the reduction of the large quantity of unsold wine, which a few years ago was the equivalent of an entire year’s production, and the productive reallocation of funds to boost the competitiveness of European wines.For instance, the EU plans to stop paying producers for surplus cheap table wine and will instead divert this large slice of the EU wine budget into producing and marketing quality wines.Steady growthThe five partners of the alliance have all seen recent growth in exports despite the world-wide recession, and will continue to focus their efforts on the promotion of the New World as a source of top-quality wines and oenological innovation.In the period 2007 to 2008 all alliance members reported healthy export figures. South Africa’s exports rose 32% in volume and 42% in value from 2007, to 45.2-million cases valued at $780-million (R6.1-billion).Elsewhere in the southern hemisphere, Argentina’s 23.8-million cases exported were an increase of 14% in volume and 28% in value from 2007, and Chile’s exports rose 10% in value but decreased 3% in volume. Nonetheless, the 65.4-million cases were worth $1.4-billion (R11-billion).New Zealand saw 10.9-million cases leaving the country, an increase of 19%. The Antipodean country is famed particularly for its Sauvignon Blanc, and in June 2009 the country’s Nobilo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc became the top seller of its kind in the US.Exports from the US, of which 90% came from California, totalled 55-million cases worth $1-billion (R7.8-billion), an increase of 8% in volume and 6% in value.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

The banks announced their joint funding initiative, which will be pumped directly into the national government’s budget, on 3 May 2011.This investment comes as the new government faces the task of introducing reforms that favour a democratic dispensation. Economic reforms in Tunisia are also in the spotlight as authorities have to create massive job opportunities and improve basic services.Tunisia’s transitional government was born from a citizen’s revolution that deposed long-serving President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who gave up power in January 2011. He’d been President for 23 years.The Tunisian people’s revolution was closely followed by similar demonstrations in neighbouring Egypt and Libya, as well other Arab countries in the region. While pro-reform Egyptians managed to collapse former President Hosni Mubarak’s government, the conflict rages on in Libya between leader Muammar Gaddafi’s forces and pro-democracy fighters.Fouad Mebazza, the speaker of Tunisia’s parliament, is the country’s interim president. He’s set 24 July 2011 as the day the country will hold elections that will determine a constituent council. The national body will draft a new constitution and assume executive powers until presidential and parliamentary elections are held at a date yet to be determined.“The transitional government wants to increase equity, transparency, voice and accountability, and the World Bank can support the Tunisian people in their efforts to achieve these reforms,” World Bank President Robert Zoellick said in a statement.Cooperation between the banksAFDB’s President Donald Kaberuka met his World Bank counterpart Zoellick in Tunis, the nation’s capital, on 3 May, where the leading African funder’s temporary headquarters are located.The joint funding marks stronger cooperation between the two banks, AFDB said. “We are working very closely together to support Tunisia in this period of transition,” Kaberuka said in a statement.Zoellick added: “We are deepening ties with the African Development Bank.”Zoellick’s North Africa visitZoellick is currently on a special visit to Tunisia and neighbouring Morocco, and is expected to meet top officials of the Tunisian transitional government. He will end his visit on 6 May.The World Bank said Zoellick would also visit a rural municipality in Tunisia as well as one of the poorest areas in the country to meet farmer associations and women groups.His visit to an area that needs development is based on the identified need to empower such areas as well as cities, said the World Bank.“We are especially interested to see where we can help the most disadvantaged regions of Tunisia,” said Zoellick. “Modernisation and opportunity should not just be on offer in Tunisia’s Mediterranean cities, but also extend to the interior of the country.”Zoellick’s visit to Morocco will take him to the Deuxiemes Assises de l’Industrie, the country’s major industry conference. There he’ll take part in discussions on how economic and governance reforms contribute to development.The World Bank recognises Morocco as one of the North African countries that is succeeding in implementing important economic and governance systems.“Morocco has over the past decade pursued significant economic and governance reforms, and it is important that this momentum persists so that opportunity is provided to its disadvantaged and vulnerable citizens,” said Zoellick in his statement.last_img read more

first_imgUnhappy over delay in maintenance work on National Highway-27 here, Congress MLA Bharat Singh on Sunday accused a Minister in the Gehlot government of corruption and hindering the work. Mr. Singh, who represents Sangod Assembly constituency in Kota district, has written a letter to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot alleging corruption in the State’s mining department. ‘Save govt. from corrupt’ In the letter he has requested Mr. Gehlot to save the government from the “corrupt people” to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. He also referred to the Chief Minister’s budget speech in which Mr. Gehlot had said his government would work to put an end to “the flowing Ganga of corruption”. The central government wants to repair the highway stretch but the State mining department is raising obstacles, the letter said. He alleged that funds worth ₹208.54 crore have been sanctioned for maintenance work on NH-27, but an assistant engineer of the mining department in Baran is apparently raising hurdles on the directions of the Minister and not issuing the requisite permission letter to the contractor for the maintenance work. “What honesty is there in a department where its head is already corrupt“?, he said in the letter without naming the Minister. The MLA further said in the letter that the contractor himself has narrated his ordeal to him.Mining Minister Notably, Pramod Jain Bhaya, the MLA from Anta area of Baran district is the Mining Minister. Speaking to PTI on Sunday, Mr. Singh said, “The amount has been sanctioned and the work will begin but hindrance is being caused by the Minister who should be expediting the work,” he said. He said Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has responded positively to the work but the ground reality was “very unfortunate”.last_img read more
