The JSE is also one of the world’s top 20 equity markets, one of the world’s top 10 derivatives markets, and one of the world’s top 5 bond markets.”The CEOs Know campaign is in  collaboration with Business Leadership South Africa  and aims to position South Africa as in ideal investment destination. The CEOs Know Campaign features various CEO’s from  multinational corporations based in South Africa, who share insights behind their continued investment into South Africa.The JSE continues to dominate the Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) region, representing 38% of all listed companies and 83% of total market capitalisation in the region in 2012. In fact, 68 of sub-Saharan Africa’s 100 largest companies in terms of market capitalisation are listed on the JSE, including the five largest companies in Africa. In addition to  being the most advanced stock exchange in the region, the JSE is also among the global top 20 of exchanges in  market capitalisation and turnover. With a market capitalisation of 159% of GDP in 2012, South Africa also has one of the largest equity markets in the world, relative to the size of its economy.Touching on the recent transition in political leadership which led to Cyril Ramaphosa being elected as President of the Republic – Newton-King says that this change has brought about a sense of renewed hope – not only for South Africans, but also for foreign investors.“When foreign investors have come to talk to us recently – they started out with the question ‘is the political change for real’ and what we are able to confidently tell them is that this change has imbued our people with a real sense of home and optimism. They ask us about the Rule of Law, and whether or not we all respect their rights and of course we proudly say that we have one of the world’s most respected Constitutions and one of the most respected judiciary – and these are enormously positive things to say about our country.“This country is the most extraordinary place to live in, there is a beat that you wake up to every single day. I am inspired by the diversity that we have as a competitive advantage in this country,” concluded Newton-King.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

first_imgOften lost amongst the smart cities media hype are clearly defined entry points that local leaders can target when beginning to transform their metropolis into a smart city.Thankfully, Tech Republic recently interviewed several industry experts for their views on how urban leaders can begin the journey toward smart city-dom.One key focus is to develop smart initiatives that not only solve urban challenges but get citizens in on the action too.“Find a point that takes citizen interest first, but can impact many people in a city and get visibility and become a symbol of a smart city,” said TM Forum’s Carl Piva. “Ask, ‘What can I do to make my city more equitable, more inclusive or to simply create a dialogue with the people who live there?’”A successful example of this is the city of Boston’s mobile app that enables citizens to report problems or needed repairs by sending their photograph of the issue to the city. Not only does this empower residents to participate in improving the city, but sparks citizen dialogues around trends and recurring needs.Another early smart city strategy is for planners to highlight a solid return on investment (ROI) that a technology-driven project will generate.A case in point is Los Angeles’ conversion of 215,000 streetlights to LED smart lights which generates $9 million in utility savings annually. That the lights will pay for themselves in six years provides clear ROI evidence to convince skeptical city stakeholders that future smart projects promise tangible benefits.“That streetlight is everywhere in your city and it’s got power to it and you can do so many things with it, now and in the future, if you think big first,” said Smart Cities Council chairman Jesse Berst.Harnessing the massive flows of data generated by smart cities is another entry point for urban transformation. Especially if that information is not only used to improve the city, but also for engaging the public through open data initiatives.New tech means fewer 911 callsThe decision by Albuquerque, N.M.to make certain data openly available to citizens resulted in 422,000 fewer calls to 311. Berst says the power of open data not only cut costs but improved city interactions in other interesting ways.“As a city, you save money on Freedom for Information requests, and you create this data repository that your departments can start using and your citizens can start using and your hackers and developers can start using to build great things,” he said.Lastly, the ability for smart city innovations to tackle government silos is a critical selling point for transforming a city’s technology infrastructure.“It’s very important to not build a siloed infrastructure,” said Cisco’s managing director of Smart+Connected Communities Munish Khetrapal. “The day you build a siloed infrastructure you’ve wasted 30% of the dollars taxpayers are spending.”Smart city platforms are effective in breaking city staff out of vertical silos through interdepartmental data sharing. As well, the new technology fostering horizontal collaborations between unexpected city actors and the elimination of duplicated services.

first_imgSpeedster Navdeep Saini was impressive in the ongoing edition of the IPL and has rightly caught the attention of former England medium-pacer Dominic Cork, who says India will have a “massive” future with him.Saini picked up 11 wickets for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) from 13 matches and was their second best bowler after spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.Though the Viral Kohli-led team failed to qualify for the playoffs, the 26-year-old pacer was impressive.”For me when you look at Navdeep Saini, I think India will have a massive future with. If we actually clip on him here and we play.”We need to see the deliveries with his pegs,” Cork, a Star Sports Select Dugout expert, was quoted as saying in a media release here Monday.”The one thing I want to tell these young bowlers is that its about the head position. He (Saini) can be a little taller.”It looks like he is just going to fall away so he might put his weight forward. So that is Saini, someone who is already very successful in this game,” added Cork, who played 37 Tests for England.Saini is one of the four pacers who will assist Team India in their ODI World Cup preparations in England.He will be a net bowler and help Team India during the World Cup along with three others, the BCCI had announced earlier.Meanwhile, another young find from the current edition of the IPL was Assam’s Riyan Parag, who played for the Rajasthan Royals.advertisementFormer Australian batsman Dean Jones, also a ‘Select Dug-Out’ expert, lavished praise on the teenager, who at 17 years and 175 days, became the youngest player to register an IPL fifty. He achieved the feat against the Delhi Capitals.”Riyan Parag is an absolute potential superstar. I reckon he plays amazing shots to all parts of the ground.”He has amazing stroke play and is good on the back foot and front foot, hes good everywhere. He has a knack for getting into the right position just as the ball is released,” Jones said.”Just like (South African superstar) AB de Villiers he gives himself access to the ball to hit it 360 degrees,” said the former Australian cricketer.Parag scored 160 runs from seven matches but impressed one and all with his striking ability.Also Read | Navdeep Saini, Khaleel Ahmed among 4 pacers to assist India in World Cup 2019 preparationAlso Read | Brett Lee heaps praise on pacers Bumrah, Prasidh and Sainilast_img read more
