With an estimated economic toll of $ 57.7 billion, the to study estimated the cost at the equivalent of three and a half times the 2019 GDP of the occupied Palestinian territory ”.

Moreover, he indicated that the minimum cost of eliminating poverty in the West Bank had increased sixfold between 1998 and 2007, from $ 73 million to $ 428 million.

“We are talking about the reproduction of despair in the West Bank and Gaza,” said Richard Kozul-Wright, UNCTAD Director of the Division on Globalization and Development Strategies, calling for the reconnection of the Palestinian territories into a “full state” to reverse the trend.

Second aftermath of the Palestinian intifada

The report covers the period following the outbreak of the second Palestinian intifada in September 2000.

According to UNCTAD economist Rami Alazzeh, Israel’s closure policy was “on several levels.”

The roads between the West Bank, Gaza, Israel and the border with Jordan have been closed and “in 2020 there is still the separation wall that Israel started to build in 2003”.

what’s more 600 obstacles in the West Bank, including checkpoints and barriers, remain in place.

Poverty projections

The immediate effect of stricter Israeli restrictions on the West Bank witnessed a drastic drop in living standards, which hit the poorest segments of the population the most.

The report predicted that without Israeli closures, restrictions and military operations, the 2004 poverty rate in the West Bank would have been 12 percent, or one-third of the current 35 percent.

In 2019, the West Bank’s GDP per capita would have been 44% higher than its real value, according to the report.

“This is a substantial amount of money for a small economy like this,” said Mahmoud Elkhafif, coordinator of assistance to the Palestinian people at UNCTAD.

“Growth without employment and development stopped”

In the West Bank between 2000 and 2002, the tightening of Israeli restrictions and military operations triggered a contraction of one-third, according to the report.

Although there has been 6.2% annual growth in its economy since 2007, the report pointed out that the expansion was volatile – ranging from 13.1% in 2008 to 1.6% in 2019 – which led to high unemployment, hovering around 18%. during this time.

Unable to find jobs, many Palestinians sought work in Israel and its settlements, creating a nefarious dependence of the West Bank regional economy on Israel.

However, without it, the West Bank would have almost reached unemployment rates as high as those in the besieged Gaza Strip, which averaged 39.8% between 2007 and 2019.

But the report pointed out that even with a job in Israel, the West Bank regional economy has not been able to reduce or stabilize its unemployment rate since 1999.

Lift restrictions

Report calls for lifting all restrictions on mobility in the occupied Palestinian territory and to reconnect it with East Jerusalem and all the towns and villages of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

He also called for enabling the Palestinian public and private sectors to establish and run agricultural, industrial, commercial and mining businesses in Area C – which comprises over 60% of the West Bank – where Palestinians are currently not allowed. to operate. companies.

The document recalls that until the end of the occupation, Palestinian economic development will continue to be stopped and its cost to the population, continue to grow.

To create “decent jobs”, it is “essential to overcome the kind of poverty levels we see in the West Bank,” Kozul-Wright said.

Saudi Alhokair sees light at end of pandemic tunnel as other retailers recover

After companies listed on the Saudi Stock Exchange Tadawul reported earnings, Arab News studied the income statements of three food retailers and a fashion chain. Only Alhokair, mainly a clothing chain, increased its profits.

Rising sales of Alhokair boosted annual profits by 75% to SR 1,311 million. A decrease in depreciation was also a factor due to store closings. Financial costs fell by more than 25% as the company continued its policy of closing unprofitable outlets. The group also operates a much smaller food business.

“The pandemic has helped make quick decisions on how to get rid of stores, and in the past seven fiscal quarters around 600 unprofitable stores have been closed. At the same time, 300 new stores have been opened, ”the company’s chief financial officer, Ahmed Belbesy, told Al Arabiya in a recent interview.

He explained that in the first six months of the year, starting in early April, the company opened 11 food branches. On the clothing brand side, the company continued to divest branches that do not generate enough sales.

In contrast, Savola Group, Fawaz Al-Othaim and BinDawood Holding, all predominantly food retailers, saw their net profit in the first nine months of this year fall by more than 35%.

Fawaz Al-Othaim and BinDawood Holding both cited slowing sales after record 2020 figures. Both companies said growing operating costs were a factor in slowing their profits.

This is a turnaround from last year when, at the height of the health crisis, grocery retailers posted robust income statements.

At that time, last year’s growing pandemic was almost a disaster for Alhokair. The company suffered a loss of 1.7 billion rupees, the worst in its history.

The channel’s sales plunged by more than half, from a pre-pandemic level of SR 1.29 billion in the quarter ending December 2019 to SR 565 million in the quarter ending June 2020.

During the same period, large Saudi food retailers saw their revenues increase in the second and even the first quarter of last year, a generally weaker season for sales.

One of these retailers is Savola Group, a holding company with assets in food production and food retailing. It controls 28% of the Saudi retail market through its 98.8% owned grocery chain, Panda Retail, and its 49% owned Herfy Food Services Co. Herfy is a catering, industrial bakery and meat processing company.

Sales of the Savola Group amounted to Rs 6.12 billion in the first quarter of 2020, its highest sales on record in the first quarter. Net profit for the year jumped to SR 1 billion from SR 657 million in 2019.

Sales of Abdullah Al-Othaim Markets Co., a Saudi food wholesale and retail company, hit record levels in each of the first three quarters of 2020, with annual net profit rising by 72% to reach 600 million SR compared to 2019.

Another Saudi retailer that Arab News looked at was the owner of the supermarket and hypermarket chain, BinDawood Holding Company. Its main activity is the sale of food and household items, as well as the operation of bakeries and restaurants.

Sales and profits increased 13% in 2020 compared to 2018 results.

The reason was an increase in food and hygiene products in 2020, due to panic buying by consumers in the face of the pandemic.

In contrast, Alhokair’s food business is a secondary unit, so it did not take advantage of the large profits made by its grocery competitors last year. In the second quarter of 2021, its food and beverage business, primarily cafeterias in the food courts of the company’s stores, accounted for just 10% of the group’s overall revenue, according to company documents.

The value of transactions at the Kingdom’s outlets, a key indicator of the Saudi retail market, showed that food and beverage sales jumped 68% in 2020 to reach SR 62.4 billion, compared to the previous year. In addition, transactions more than doubled, from 388 million to 794 million.

In contrast, the value of transactions in the clothing and footwear segment increased only 9% to SR 30.5 billion, while the transaction volume fell 7% to 138 million.

It is clear that Alhokair’s turnaround has come this year, having survived the ravages of the pandemic, allowing it to increase its profits.

James Piccoli has been riding for Sylvan Adams’ teams for two years. The rider is one of five Canadians on the team now, plus Derek Gee who rides for the starting team, the Israel Cycling Academy.

Recently, Piccoli was in Israel as part of the team’s liaison camp. It wasn’t his first time there, but it was the first time he could be a bit more touristy. “I arrived here for the first time in 2019, after joining the 2020 season. It was later in the year, so it was half training camp, half tourist activities,” he said. he said, while taking a short break from team activities in the lobby of the Royal Beach Tel Aviv hotel. “This time around, I feel like there was a lot that I couldn’t see in Israel as we were training to prepare for the season.”

Enjoying Israel as a tourist

This time however, he joined his teammates and staff for a launch, not a specific training camp. Even though there was still riding, they didn’t care much about watts and intervals. “We had just finished our season so it’s great to see what Israel has to offer. “

However, Israel’s roads have a lot of what Piccoli loves when it comes to training. “Some of my favorite roads that I consider to be home are the dry desert or hill roads of the southwestern United States, New Mexico and Utah. Or in Spain and Andorra. It is exactly like that here. I had a great walk in the hills of Jerusalem, when we went to Bar Bahar, ”he said, mentioning the team’s group ride to a popular cafe in the hills west of. Jerusalem. “Also, Saturday is Shabbat, the traditional day of rest for the Jewish people, so it was like we had all of Israel to ourselves.

Progress every year

Piccoli was excited when he moved to the ICA for the 2020 season, and he has progressed since. Riding with a lot of your compatriots also helps. “There is obviously a Canadian influence,” he said. “It’s great to be part of a WorldTour team with familiar faces. Sylvan Adams is a Canadian Israeli, and of course Paulo Saldanha, the team’s guru. In addition, we have so many Canadians among our employees. It’s pretty obvious how much the team has grown, and it’s great to be a part of it.

By cycling standards, Piccoli admits he was “old” when he joined (at 28), but he has used the last two years to learn what it takes to run regularly for 60 to 80 days of the week. year, with the best runners in the world. “I had time to adjust and a lot of guys to learn with, like Dan Martin, Mike Woods or Chris Froome,” Piccoli said. “But now I guess I’ll try to do what I can for the team, which means going for the results and giving it my all.”

Finally on “Spidertech”

When Piccoli started racing in the early 2010s, the biggest team in Canada was Spidertech, led by Steve Bauer. This was the team to be a part of, and now he’s joking that he’s finally made it. With the team sponsored by the Canadian company and Bauer as athletic director, he feels like his career has come full circle.

“I’ve never worked with Steve before, never even met him. Of course, I knew who he was because he is a true legend. Piccoli said. “The team’s Canadian DNA is pretty obvious. Of course ISUN is sponsored and supported by the State of Israel, there is huge Canadian influence even on the continental pro team. This is a great opportunity for Canadians to be inspired as I have been by Spidertech.

When asked who the heart of the team is, Piccoli replies that it is Adams. “Sylvan has played an incredible role in the growth of the team. He’s one of the most passionate people on the team and it’s wonderful. It’s so great to see the big boss wanting to be so involved in the team.

Building on important achievements by the University of York and its partners, a study developing a new model of controlled human infection for leishmaniasis is currently recruiting volunteers.

Disease burden

Leishmaniasis, caused by a microscopic parasite called Leishmania, is transmitted by the bite of sandflies and affects more than one million people worldwide each year. The diseases caused by these parasites range from skin lesions that can cause disfigurement to potentially fatal organ damage.

Researchers hope to recruit up to 18 people to participate in this vital research study. The study uses a species of parasite that causes one of the milder forms of leishmaniasis, limited to a skin lesion localized at the site of a sandfly bite. This lesion can be excised at an early stage and several known complementary treatments exist.

Principal investigator, Professor Paul Kaye from Hull York Medical School, said, “We have developed a vaccine against leishmaniasis that is being tested for the treatment of patients with some form of the disease, but to have maximum impact on global health, it is essential to find out if this vaccine can also protect people from infection. One of the ways to achieve this is to develop a model of controlled human infection ”.

Controlled Human Infection Studies

Models of controlled human infection have been used to support vaccine development against cholera, malaria, influenza, dengue, and, more recently, COVID-19. After establishing how the immune system of healthy volunteers responds to the controlled infection, researchers can then design clinical trials to determine if a new vaccine can prevent infection. By closely monitoring the immune system’s response to infection in these controlled environments, researchers can also learn how to improve vaccines.

No vaccine is currently approved to prevent leishmaniasis, but with new vaccine candidates now available, including one developed at the University of York, a challenge model to test them is increasingly urgent.

The researchers hope that the project will lead to the development of a Leishmania human challenge model that will prove invaluable in testing new vaccines and understanding how immunity to infection occurs.

Dr Vivak Parkash, who is the physician leading the clinical study, said: “Over the past two years, we have put together all the pieces needed to develop a safe and effective controlled human challenge model. Our volunteers will play a major role in finalizing the development of this model so that it can be used to improve the health of millions of people around the world.

The research is a collaboration between Hull York Medical School, York University, Department of Parasitology at Charles University in Prague, Department of Microbiology and Immunology at McGill University in Montreal, Center of Medicine Geographic and Tropical Diseases from Sheba Medical. Ctr. & Tel Aviv University and Hebrew University-Hadassah School of Medicine in Jerusalem.

The project is funded by the UK Medical Research Council and the Department of International Development.

Title of the webinar: The development of 5g in 2021 and its prospects

Dated: Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Presenter: Dr Yu-Han Chang, Technology Analyst – IDTechEx

Spaces are limited – reserve your spot today!

Over the past year, we have seen an increasing number of 5G consumer network deployments and field tests around the world. Apart from that, 5G is gaining ground in various sectors including 5G for Industry 4.0 and autonomous vehicles.

Nonetheless, there are several hurdles that need to be overcome before 5G can fully enable a digital society. For example, as the higher frequency mmWave band is the key enabling technology that unlocks all the promises of the 5G revolution, unlike sub-6 GHz where hardware and software solutions only require incremental technological advancements, mmWave operations pose major obstacles across the entire supply chain. Another problem is that the 5G infrastructure industry is dominated by a few historical players. As we all know, an industry with a diverse supply chain is more likely to introduce more innovations, lower equipment costs, and improve the dynamics of the field overall. This is the reason why “Open RAN” – networks based on disaggregated RAN components with standardized interoperability, including the use of non-proprietary white box hardware, open source software from different vendors and open interfaces is encouraged by major telecommunications operators. around the world.

Dr. Yu-Han Chang, Technology Analyst at IDTechEx, will address the following topics in this webinar to address some of the key 5G developments and the most pressing industrial challenges:

  • 5G Development Snapshot: A summary of technical and business developments in the sector over the past year, as well as a roadmap for future growth.
  • Presentation of 5G commercial deployment: What are the prospects for deployment in China, the United States, Europe, South Korea and Japan?
  • 5G Applications Overview: The current state of 5G adoption in industries, as well as the way forward.
IDTechEx has been covering 5G technologies for many years. We offer a comprehensive selection of technical market research reports on this industry, including 5G Main Report, 5G Small Cells, 5G Thermal Management, and 5G Low Loss Materials. Technical analysis, SWOT analysis, granular 10-year market forecast, application examples, detailed company profiles, and technological / business readiness assessment are all included in our studies. .

The Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) has announced a contribution of US $ 18 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in support of its resources base for 2021 and 2022. The total contribution of US $ 18 million will be disbursed in installments, with $ 10 million in 2021 and $ 8 million in 2022. Qatar is the first Arab country to have signed a multi-year agreement with UNRWA in 2018 – the previous agreement covering UNRWA Resources in 2019 and 2020.

In addition, the QFFD contributed $ 7 million to UNRWA to support its emergency program in Syria. This generous contribution will cover the cash assistance, education, health and vocational training program that the Palestinian refugees in Syria urgently need.

The general situation in Syria still poses immense challenges for Palestinian refugees. This contribution from the QFFD comes at a much needed time due to the deteriorating living conditions and difficult socio-economic conditions inside Syria, which are having a further impact on an already vulnerable Palestinian refugee population, with increasing levels of poverty and food insecurity, as well as fuel and electricity shortages. .

During his visit to Doha, UNRWA Commissioner General Philippe Lazzarini signed the Partnership Agreement with QFFD Director General HE Khalifa Jassim Al Kuwari. “UNRWA is extremely proud of its partnership with the QFFD and the government of Qatar,” said Mr. Lazzarini. “Their steady support over several decades has greatly contributed to the Agency’s ability to provide health, education and rescue services to Palestinian refugees. Commenting on the timeliness of this exceptional show of support, he said: “At a time of intense pressure on our Agency, the generosity of the government of Qatar and the QFFD sends a clear message of solidarity to Palestinian refugees.

UNRWA is intensifying its contacts with donors and partners ahead of the International Conference on UNRWA to be held in Brussels on November 16 under the chairmanship of Jordan and Sweden. The conference seeks to establish a plan whereby the international community provides the Agency with sufficient and sustainable funding to enable the continuation and modernization of the services Palestinian refugees receive under the UNRWA mandate of the General Assembly. United Nations.

Background information:

UNRWA is faced with an increased demand for services resulting from an increase in the number of registered Palestinian refugees, the extent of their vulnerability and the worsening of their poverty. UNRWA is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions and financial support has been overtaken by growing needs. As a result, UNRWA’s program budget, which supports the provision of basic essential services, is operating with a large deficit. UNRWA encourages all Member States to work collectively to make every effort to fully fund the Agency’s program budget. UNRWA’s emergency programs and key projects, which also operate with large deficits, are funded through separate funding portals.

UNRWA is a United Nations agency established by the General Assembly in 1949 and mandated to provide assistance and protection to Palestinian refugees registered with UNRWA in its five areas of operation. Its mission is to help Palestinian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank, including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip to realize their full potential for human development, while awaiting a just and lasting solution to their fate. UNRWA’s services include education, health care, relief and social services, camp infrastructure and improvement, protection and microfinance.

Sarajevo Canton (CS) Economy Minister Adnan Delic yesterday visited in Dubai the Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Commissioner General of EXPO 2020 Dubai, Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al-Nahyan, with whom he discussed the importance and importance of EXPO 2020 Dubai for Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), investments and tourism, but also the importance of promoting coexistence and tolerance, both globally and nationally.

Delic took the opportunity to inform Minister Nahyan that BiH and its capital Sarajevo are the cradles of coexistence and tolerance.

“Sarajevo is a combination of different traditions, cultures and religions and one of the fundamental characteristics of Sarajevo is its multiculturalism and multi-faith, which are the achievements of our civilization built during centuries of living together in this region. BiH and Sarajevo have always nurtured the unity of differences and this is our great wealth by which we are recognizable both in the East and in the West ”, declared Minister Delic.

Minister Nahyan has never been to Sarajevo, Minister Delic took the opportunity to invite him, accompanied by our ambassador Serif Mujkanovic, to visit BiH and its capital for the first time, promising him to see little Jerusalem in the heart. from Europe, which delighted Nahyane.

Minister Nahyan stressed that he had gladly accepted the invitation for a visit during which discussions on the possibilities of cooperation between BiH and the United Arab Emirates could continue.

During the meeting, it was stressed that the opening of the UAE diplomatic and consular mission in Sarajevo would be of great importance for tourism and attract investors.

“At the end of the meeting, Minister Nahyan promised that he would visit our pavilion soon,” it was announced.
