MSC to Buy Hanjins Share in Long Beach Terminal

first_imgzoom Swiss-based container shipping major Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has signed an agreement to buy Hanjin Shipping’s stake in a container terminal at California’s Port of Long Beach, according to Yonhap News Agency.Namely, the Seoul Central District Court has reportedly given its nod to the contract with MSC, under which Hanjin will sell its 54 percent stake in terminal operator Total Terminals International (TTI).Although the financial terms of the deal were not revealed, the stake in TTI was earlier estimated to be worth more than KRW 400 billion (USD 344.5 million).The remaining 46 percent stake in the terminal operator is already held by MSC.Yonhap said that the contract still needs to receive approvals from a US court, as well as the US port authority.A spokesperson from MSC said that Hanjin, Terminal Investment Limited (TIL) and Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) “are progressing approvals for completion of a Purchase and Sale Agreement related to the Hanjin interests in TTI.”The spokesperson added that the parties “expect that all approvals will be achieved by early January 2017.”At the beginning of December, MSC and South Korea’s carrier HMM jointly submitted a bid to acquire the stake the Long Beach container terminal.The latest sale comes a month after the bankrupt South Korean container carrier Hanjin Shipping sold its Asia-US route network to South Korean shipping company Korea Line Corp., part of SM Group, for KRW 37 billion.Scheduled to be finalized on January 5, 2017, the deal includes Hanjin’s business network and client information related to the route and subsidiaries and logistics management systems in seven countries.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Feds launch review of officiallanguages law 50 years after its introduction

first_imgOTTAWA — The federal government is launching a review of the Official Languages Act, saying it is time to modernize the decades-old law.The 1969 law enshrined Canadians’ right to receive federal services in English or French.The last major reform of the law was in 1988 and there have been recent calls to update it again, including from a Senate committee that late last month said the act needs to be applied more effectively and consistently.Oversight mechanisms need to be beefed up to ensure rights aren’t trampled on, the report said, adding a veiled reference to a furor in Ontario that forced the government to backtrack on plans to abolish the independent office of its French-language services commissioner and shrink a francophone-affairs cabinet post.The Liberals plan a series of meetings, the first taking place Tuesday in Moncton, N.B., and an online consultation that’s to result in a final report in June.Official Languages Minister Melanie Joly said in a statement that the government wants a modernized act to help minority-language communities “meet the new challenges they face” and ensure the law “can continue to meet the needs of Canadians.”The latest census figures from Statistics Canada show that in 2016, the country’s bilingualism rate stood 17.9 per cent — an all-time high — mainly due to an increase in the number of people who can speak French.Statistics Canada had to revise the bilingualism rate down by one-10th of a percentage point after it found a computer error in about 61,000 online census responses: French-speakers were recorded as having English as their mother tongue, leading the agency to report an increase in anglophones in Quebec.The erroneously reported jump in English-language speakers caused emotional ripples in Quebec, with provincial politicians talking about legislative means to ensure the survival of the French language in the province.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
