12 Inside BUSINESS Monday, December 18 2017 | NEW ERA SA trade minister wants country to move up the industrialisation ladder JOHANNESBURG South African Minister of Trade and Industry, Rob Davies, yesterday said every effort must be made to boost local manufacturing, create black industrialists and make the country advance technologically so that it can benefit from the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Speaking at the Progressive Business Forum (PBF) breakfast yesterday morning, Davies said that South Africa should be prepared for the challenges that are going to be posed by the new digital revolution as electronic commerce continue to shape the modern world. Davies said that South Africa needs substantial change in the composition of its economy, which would only come through diversifying, industrialising and moving up the value chain as a response to calls for radical economic transformation. “South Africa needs to adapt to changes moving up the industrialization ladder. Our efforts to industrialize are going have to take place outside our border. South Africa as a country can learn a lot from other countries such as China in terms of stimulating the technological business sector,” Davies said. “We are integrated into the world economy as producers and exporters of primary commodities, minerals or agricultural unprocessed primary commodities, and we are importers of finished goods and services from around the world, and that is the least lucrative place to be. As technology changes, the proportion of the value of the final product that is constituted by the raw material in it, is a diminishing proportion.” Davies highlighted the ministry’s incentive programme, which aims to create 100 black industrialists and strengthen the scorecard for the Black Economic Empowerment programme, as some of his department.” - Nampa/ANA The Kavango East Regional Council Procurement Committee has the pleasure to publish all the names of bidders who qualify for award for the Annual bid No A10/1-19/2017-Electrical 2017/2019 as per Section 55(8) of the Public Procurement Act.

Tomorrow, the former CEO Marcelo Odebrecht, 49, gets out of prison to finish his 10-year sentence under house arrest. Here are key facts about the company and its disgraced ex-boss. Often described as a construction company, Odebrecht S.A. is also a major player in engineering, agriculture and petrochemical production. The multinational behemoth was founded in 1944 in the northeastern state of Bahia, by Norberto Odebrecht, grandfather of Marcelo. According to the company’s figures for 2015, it had 128 000 employees, with gross revenues of around US billion and activities in 25 countries. Exporting to more than 100 countries, Odebrecht S.A. is involved in a dizzying array of ventures, including even a submarine factory. Its high-profile construction jobs include Rio de Janeiro’s famous Maracana stadium, the Mariel port in Cuba, the Simon Bolivar airport in Venezuela and the Grand Parkway highway in Texas. Far leaner times have arrived in the wake of the corruption scandal, with employees reduced to about 75 000- 80 000. Under Marcelo Odebrecht, the company became known for another big project: corruption. ECOWAS threatens Guinea- Bissau sanctions as crisis drags ABUJA Brazilian officials running the “Car Wash” inquiry discovered that Odebrecht was especially active in bribing politicians to help secure inflated construction contracts at Petrobras and elsewhere. Odebrecht was also bribing politicians – sometimes right into their pockets, sometimes into their party campaign slush funds – to get favourable legislation passed. The bribery was so intense that Odebrecht S.A. had a dedicated department in charge. Seventy seven executives, including Odebrecht, eventually struck a plea deal, spilling the beans on the politicians who took bribes. His sentence was reduced from the original 19 years and now he will get to live in his luxury Sao Paulo home again. Probes have discovered more Odebrecht S.A. bribery schemes right across Latin America, including Mexico, Panama and Peru. In December 2016, the US Justice Department announced that Odebrecht S.A. and its petrochemical joint venture Braskem would pay a US.5 billion fine – a record in international corruption cases – after admitting to paying US8 million in bribes across 12 countries. But even the main Brazilian judge tackling the scandal, Sergio Moro, has acknowledged the sensitive issues around his battle with a national icon. “It’s reasonable to be thinking about its survival, through mechanisms of compensation, in order to preserve jobs,” he wrote in his ruling ordering Odebrecht’s arrest. - Nampa/AFP West African leaders on Saturday threatened to slap Guinea-Bissau with sanctions unless the country’s grinding political crisis was resolved within two months. In a summit in Nigeria, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) said it was “disappointed with the absence of progress in the peace process” in the tiny west African state, which has been in the grip of a power struggle since August 2015. The crisis erupted when President Jose Mario Vaz sacked then prime minister Domingos Simoes Pereira. Talks mediated by Guinean President Alpha Conde and Togolese counterpart Faure Gnassingbe in October 2016 had envisaged naming a new prime minister and assembling a unity government. ECOWAS called on Conde and Gnassingbe “to continue consultation within the next two months without which collective and individual sanctions will be handed down against all those who constitute themselves into an obstacle”. Vaz had this week proposed fresh talks to find a way out of the crisis but opposition parties objected to the plan. Guinea-Bissau has been plagued by military coups and instability since its independence from Portugal in 1974. - Nampa/AFP
