Under HAMmer, road companies look for policy tweak 17.7.2018 DNA: Opinion
Is the Hybrid Annuity Model (HAM) in the road sector going through a rough patch? Possibly, yes. Already, funding is becoming a challenging task for road developers, forcing the Minister of Road Transport & Highways Nitin Gadkari and Reserve Bank of India’s deputy governor to meet the bankers and ask them to lend money to these projects. For the starters, the HAM model is a combination of engineering, procurement and construction as well as build-operate-transfer models. Under this model, the government pays 40% of the project cost during the initial five years through annual payments (annuity) and the balance is to be invested by the private player. The developer has to get 60% of the project cost. This model helps in reducing risks involved with the project as well as reduce the funding requirement for the private players. A fortnight ago, Gadkari, after meeting the bankers, had said, “Under HAM, there are various projects. In all, there are 104 projects valuing between Rs 1.25 lakh crore to Rs 1.50 ...

Water, sanitation and hygiene is a global crisis: WaterAid's global advocacy director 16.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Supplying clean water and toilets for all could take hundreds of years in countries like Eritrea and Namibia unless governments step up funding to tackle the problem and its harmful effects on health, an international development agency warned on Monday. WaterAid - which says nearly 850 million people lack clean water - predicted the world will miss a global goal to provide drinking water and adequate sanitation for everyone by 2030. Meeting it will cost $28 billion per year, the non-profit said. "Water, sanitation and hygiene is a global crisis," said Savio Carvalho, WaterAid's global advocacy director. "We're really calling for governments to pull up their socks," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation from the United Nations in New York. From July 9-18, governments are reviewing progress on the Sustainable Development Goals, which were agreed at the United Nations in 2015, with a focus on six of the 17. Last week, UN officials said barriers to achieving the 2030 water and sanitation targets range from ...

China Q2 GDP growth cools as factory output weakens, trade row flares 16.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
China's economic growth slowed as expected in the second quarter as the government's efforts to tackle debt risks crimp activity and an intensifying trade war with the United States threatens to knock exports. The economy grew 6.7 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, cooling slightly from the first quarter, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Monday. Activity data for June also indicated slowing momentum, backing views that growth is cooling, with some analysts calling for the government to take stronger measures to support the economy "They need to slow financial deleveraging slightly and to turn their focus more on growth-supportive measures, for example increasing liquidity through (bank reserve requirement) cuts," said Iris Pang, Greater China Economist at ING in Hong Kong. "If the situation gets worse a lot faster than what we expect I do think Chinese authorities need to beef up supportive measures, both fiscal and monetary." First half fixed asset investment growth was a record ...
