The HGK survey shows that 80% of domestic companies feel the effects of coronavirus on their business

first_imgAs far as exports and imports are concerned, an equal number of companies are experiencing difficulties (around 65%), with a significant increase in the number of medium and large companies that have difficult imports due to the border blockade. The activities that record the largest decline in imports are still travel agencies and transport and storage, and this problem is increasingly faced by companies from the manufacturing industry, construction and wholesale and retail trade. The decline in exports and imports is most felt in the counties of Istria and Varaždin. The largest increase in the share of affected companies compared to the previous measurement was recorded in education, services and professional, scientific and technical activities, and the most common difficulties of entrepreneurs are still related to the completion of existing and already contracted jobs (growth of 9%) and reduced demand in the domestic market (growth of 8%). Travel agencies were the first to be hit by the crisis, so it is not surprising that more than half of them report a drop in bookings of 20 to 60%. According to a statement from the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, this is an increase of 13 percentage points in just 16 days. Almost 60% of companies reported that they have so far recorded losses of up to HRK 500.000 (+ 5pp compared to the previous measurement), and if the situation continues, 11% expect losses of more than HRK XNUMX million. According to the latest survey results, 7% of companies have workers in self-isolation. Among them, more than half use the possibility of working from home, while in 30% of companies working from home is not possible. Micro companies are still the most flexible in this regard (59% support the possibility of working from home).So far, almost 2000 companies from all over the country have participated in the Croatian Chamber of Commerce survey.center_img “Tourism, agriculture and transport are still the most affected, and due to the decision to cancel mass gatherings, arts, entertainment and recreation are now among the most endangered activities. Of particular concern is the fact that 6% of micro-enterprises and 3% of large companies estimate that they will have to shut down their business if this situation continues for another month. “, said the President of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce Luka Burilović, commenting on the results of the survey.

Roy Jones Boxing inks Joseph Agbeko to a three-year deal

first_imgRoy Jones Jr. and Roy Jones Jr. Boxing CEO Keith Veltre have announced the signing of former IBF bantamweight champion Joseph “King Kong” Agbeko (29-5, 22 KO’s) to a three-year deal. “Joseph is a great addition to the RJJ Boxing family,” Veltre said of the signing, “He is already TV worthy and possess the talent to regain a world title.”The three – year deal includes two fights in the United States and one fight in Ghana. Agbeko is tentatively scheduled to fight for the IBF Intercontinental title in March in Ghana. “We have big plans for him in America and in Ghana,” Veltre added. “We plan to hold one fight a year in Ghana (for Agbeko).”Agbeko first emerged on the scene back in 2007 when he battered IBF bantamweight champion Luis Perez over seven rounds to win the belt. He defended the belt against William Gonzalez the following year before scoring the most impressive win of his career in 2009: a decision victory over Vic Darchinyan in Florida.Although Agbeko dropped the IBF belt to Yonnhy Perez later that year by decision, he quickly bounced back with an impressive win over Perez in 2010 to regain the title. His next fight, a close majority decision loss to Abner Mares, remained one of the most controversial fights of the decade.After referee Russell Mora mistakenly called a knockdown after a Mares low blow sent Agbeko to the canvas, Agbeko found himself on the losing end of a razor thin decision. Agbeko has been inactive since dropping a decision to WBO junior featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux in 2013. However, he is expected to move back into the top ten with an impressive win in Ghana.last_img read more

Guardiola backs flying City to keep improving

first_imgManchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola on Friday warned the rest of the Premier League that his runaway leaders still have room to get even better.City set a new English top-flight record on Wednesday with a 16th successive win as they beat Swansea City 4-0 at the Liberty Stadium.They host fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, and will extend their lead to 14 points with a win, as second-placed Manchester United do not play until Sunday, when they visit West Bromwich Albion.Guardiola’s side have won countless plaudits both for their results and style of play this season, yet the Spaniard is still not completely satisfied.“The important thing is to focus on the pitch and play better,” he said.“I have the feeling we can do better. Much, much better.”Guardiola has dismissed the idea that City can match Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal team of 2003-04 by going the entire Premier League season unbeaten.He said: “That’s not going to happen. We are going to lose games. That record belongs to Arsene Wenger.“What is happening is an exception. It’s not normal what we’ve done. We’ll try to maintain it but we are going to lose games.“In football, it’s not possible to win every single game. I feel the players are convinced about the way we play. If you feel the players believe in you, then it’s good for the team.“At the end we are going to draw and lose, that’s normal. That’s what has happened in football since the 19th century.”– Kompany nearing return – Club captain Vincent Kompany is set to be absent once again on Saturday as he recovers from his latest muscle injury.Kompany had to come off at half-time as City won 2-1 at Manchester United last Sunday, and missed the midweek victory at Swansea.But Guardiola is hopeful that the centre-back will be available for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup quarter-final at Leicester City.“He’s much better. He has a little problem,” he said.“I don’t know if he’ll be right for tomorrow but in the next games I hope he’ll be ready.”City’s manager also indicated that fellow centre-back John Stones could play some part in their Christmas and New Year games as he steps up his recovery from a hamstring injury suffered during the 2-0 league win at Leicester in November.He said: “This weekend it will be four weeks. The doctor said it would be four to six weeks so hopefully he can soon be ready.”Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala will continue to play at the heart of defence while Kompany and Stones recover, while Guardiola considers signing another player as cover for them in January.Guardiola, who tried and failed to sign Jonny Evans from West Brom in August, feels 20-year-old youth-team graduate Tosin Adarabioyo is too inexperienced to play there regularly if he suffers any more defensive injury setbacks.“We don’t have many options. Tosin is still young and has to improve, and Vincent is always in the situation where he is injured,” he added.“He fights a lot to be fit but can’t do it consistently, so we have just three (centre-backs). Maybe we need a guy in that position.“It’s complicated. We want to take a guy for the next few years and have to be sure he’s the right guy to help us. If that doesn’t happen, then we won’t go into the market.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Council to dive into the development of Buncrana Leisure Centre

first_imgA new wave of hope for the reopening of the Buncrana Leisure Centre was sparked yesterday when the council confirmed plans to invite tenders for the design of the facility. The news was confirmed in the Chief Executive’s report at Monday’s Council meeting, during which Cllr Murray moved a motion on the issue.Buncrana Leisure Centre closed in 2015 for what was meant to be a temporary situation. Four years on, the continued closure means that a generation of second level students has missed out on the chance to learn to swim. Cllr Murray welcomed news that the council is about to invite tenders for the design of a new building and a proposed model is expected to be presented for consideration in early 2019. Speaking after the meeting, Cllr Murray said;“Though the delay to date has been extremely frustrating, it is nonetheless a welcome step that the council will invite tenders for the design of a new building.“It’s important now that this happens as quickly as possible so a funding requirement is confirmed and approved by council.“The people of Inishowen have waited far, far too long. The community are demanding this pool now, the councillors are united in their support and the committee is working with the executive to get it over the line. “There can be no more delays, no more obstacles or barriers to progress. Everything must now move forward. Nothing else would be acceptable.”It is hoped that the new Buncrana centre will be named ‘Inishowen Leisure Centre’ to include the entire population of the peninsula.Council to dive into the development of Buncrana Leisure Centre was last modified: March 26th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncrana leisure centreCllr Jack Murraydonegal county council. inishowenlast_img read more

10 months agoREVEALED: Why Klopp and Liverpool passed on Pulisic

first_imgREVEALED: Why Klopp and Liverpool passed on Pulisicby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp chose to pass on signing Christian Pulisic due to the form of Xherdan Shaqiri.Chelsea have signed the Borussia Dortmund winger for £58m in the last 24 hours.And the Liverpool Echo says the reality is that Liverpool haven’t seriously considered a move for Pulisic since they bought Shaqiri for £12.5million last summer.The Swiss attacker was the Pulisic alternative and he was snapped up at an absolute bargain price. Shaqiri has proved to be a massive hit at Anfield. The 27-year-old has only started 11 matches for the Reds but has already chipped in with six goals, including a match-winning double against Manchester United.Pulisic is still more potential than proven quality having scored 15 goals in 115 games for Dortmund. He has only netted three times in 18 club appearances so far this term.The size of the fee was also prohibitive. Liverpool wouldn’t buy a squad player for £58million and they certainly wouldn’t pay that for a squad player who had less than 18 months remaining on his contract.
