Thus, yesterday the action of rescuing an injured foreign citizen who participated in the canyoning above the Gubavica waterfall on the river Cetina was successfully completed, as well as rescuing and helping tourists in the Risnjak National Park who fell ill on a hiking trail from the source of the river Kupa to the village Razloge.The Ministry of the Interior presented an application for a safer and more pleasant stay of guests in Croatia The Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Croatia presented a new one mobile application “Police – security and trust”  which enables an even safer and more pleasant stay of tourists in Croatia. Mobile application of the Ministry of the Interior for anonymous reports to the police, upgraded and translated to English, German and Italian in order to use it as easily and efficiently as possible by foreign citizens who will go on a tour and sightseeing of many tourist locations, but also often stay at sea, in the mountains, on the hills or enjoy other adventures.Needless to say, safety and trust in our public services, especially in emergencies and for tourists coming with children, are important for tourism development.

Currency loss hits Lippo Karawaci despite revenue growth in Q1

first_img“In accordance with mark to market accounting policies, we incurred a one-off currency loss as the rupiah depreciated against the dollar,” the company said in a statement on Tuesday.Despite the weak bottom line, the company still recorded growth in its top line.The Riady family-backed company’s revenue grew 8.5 percent year-on-year (yoy) to Rp 3.1 trillion in January to March, on account of increased revenue in its real estate and healthcare businesses.The company said its real estate development business revenue grew 12.3 percent to Rp 678 billion due to recognized income from the completed Orange County apartment complex project in Cikarang, West Java, as well as strong commercial land, shop-houses and industrial land growth at its subsidiary, property developer PT Lippo Cikarang. Publicly listed conglomerate PT Lippo Karawaci saw trillions of rupiah in losses in the first quarter owing to the depreciating rupiah, which offset revenue growth in its real estate and healthcare businesses.The company recorded a net loss of Rp 2.1 trillion (US$146.23 million) in the first three months of this year as it recorded Rp 2.39 trillion in currency loss during the period. The rupiah weakened to its lowest level in history of Rp 16,625 against the US dollar during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in March.Read also: Residential property sales, prices rise cool as pandemic hits economy “In addition, our largest revenue contributor, the healthcare business segment, continued to grow with 9.7 percent yoy revenue increase to Rp 1.88 trillion in the first quarter,” the company added.Read also: Millennials fail to benefit from slower rise in house pricesIts subsidiary, publicly listed hospital firm Siloam Hospitals, contributed to about 77 percent of Lippo Karawaci’s revenue in the first quarter.Lippo Karawaci also recorded rising marketing sales to Rp 703 billion, up by 13 percent yoy during the period. The figure was also equal to 28.12 percent of the firm’s market sales target of Rp 2.5 trillion this year.CEO John Riady said the sales were driven by the recently-launched Waterfront Estate project in Cikarang.Going forward, it plans to continue the launch of a new housing project in its Lippo Village township in Karawaci, Tangerang in the second half of the year, which targets the middle-income segment.“In this unprecedented time, we continue to emphasize prudence in managing our cash flow and remain focused on operational excellence in our core businesses, property and healthcare,” said John.Although the property industry continues to slump amid the pandemic, Anugerah Mega Investama director Hans Kwee expressed optimism that the sector would recover once the pandemic was contained.“Companies like Lippo Karawaci will likely see an increase in property demand for certain market segments,” he told The Jakarta Post, adding that the pandemic had caused people to realize their need for housing.Read also: ‘We are dying’: No new shopping center openings, leasing grinds to haltHe went on to say that the government’s plan to boost homeownership in Indonesia through the public housing savings program (Tapera) could also help the company sell more residential property in the future.As for the end of this year, Hans said the firm’s performance would be supported by its healthcare business.“This pandemic has made people realize that health is the most important thing. Thus, I believe Lippo Karawaci’s healthcare business will see higher demand this year,” he said.Lippo Karawaci, traded on the Indonesia Stock Exchange under the code LPKR, fell more than 4 percent as of 1:35 p.m. Jakarta time on Wednesday. The stocks have lost almost 40 percent of their value in the last year.Topics :last_img read more

Dyche: No January move for Ings

first_imgBurnley boss Sean Dyche is relaxed about star striker Danny Ings’ future and insists the England Under-21 international will be staying put in January. Ings was the SkyBet Championship player of the year last season and has followed up with some impressive displays in his first Barclays Premier League campaign. He has found the net four times for the Clarets and caught the eye with his clever hold-up play, alerting several top-flight rivals. The 22-year-old is out of contract in the summer and with no agreement apparently imminent, Burnley are braced for approaches when the transfer window opens. But Dyche is convinced there is no chance of the club cashing in their prize asset. “(I have) no concerns whatsoever. I’ve been asked that question for the last two years. “The chairmen (Mike Garlick and John Banaszkiewicz) have come out and said he’s going nowhere and I’m happy with that as a manager. “We have open dialogue with him and his agent. “It’s just the reality of the situation. The club have made it quite clear how much they value the players we’ve got and we’re in a good position cash-wise because we haven’t spent a lot of money. “If anything, we’re thinking about add to the squad.” While Dyche’s top priority remains hanging on to Ings and keeping the club safe from relegation, moves are also afoot to improve the infrastructure behind the scenes. Press Association A planning application has been filed with Burnley Borough Council to expand and update the team’s Gawthorpe training ground. If successful three new pitches will be built alongside new first-team and academy training centres and a new indoor training facility. Chief executive Lee Hoos said: “Going forward this is an absolutely critical piece of work for the club. “It’s great to have a nice stadium, but for the players their place of work is the training ground so we need to give them the best opportunities for training and development and that includes enhancing the sports science provisions up there. “The development of the 60m x 40m indoor facility will also help us get the Academy to Category Two, which again helps to take the club forward in attracting young players. “When players go in every day to a facility that is purpose built and with good facilities, I think they feel good about their work. “They know we can probably add something to their career because we can take care of them, then that in turn helps us to attract more players. So all in all this is a vital development that we need to pursue.” Local residents who could be affected by the proposal have been contacted will have the chance to attend a planning meeting in the new year. last_img read more
