‘Indonesia’s new capital city will be very special,’ Tony Blair says

first_imgFormer British prime minister Tony Blair has said he is confident Indonesia’s new capital city will be a special place, describing the capital relocation plan as an outstanding vision for Indonesia as well as an inspiration for the whole world.“I think the project is enormously exciting. It’s going to be a project that doesn’t just mean creating a new capital city, but a capital city that is going to be very special in the way that it’s developed,” Blair said after a meeting with President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo on Friday.The former British prime minister has been appointed to join the steering committee for the new capital city development project, alongside SoftBank founder and CEO Masayoshi Son and United Arab Emirates (UAE) Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed al Nahyan. What would make the new city special, Blair went on to say, was the fact it would be built by not only prioritizing environmental considerations, but also the country’s economic growth and development.“The President’s vision for this capital city is one in which the city itself is going to be attractive. It’s going to be a place where people want to come, live and to work, [and] also a capital city that is able to offer a whole new dimension to the Indonesian economy,” he said. Read also: Foreign, local investors lining up to help develop Indonesia’s new capital city, says LuhutCoordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan announced after Friday’s meeting that the government would work with American engineering company AECOM, consulting firm McKinsey & Company and Japanese architectural and engineering firm Nikken Sekkei to design the new capital city.The new capital city, which is set to be located in East Kalimantan, is to be designed with the latest technology and an environmentally friendly concept.The government stated earlier that the project would cost Rp 466 trillion (US$ 34.06 billion), with one-fifth of the funds to come from the state budget.The UAE government is also prepared to invest $22.8 billion in the project through a sovereign wealth fund, alongside SoftBank and the United States International Development Finance Corporation.

Brisbane sets a sustainable pace for property price growth

first_imgCorelogic’s director of research, Tim Lawless, said Brisbane their latest research should bolster confidence in the sustainability of Brisbane house prices.HOUSE price growth is setting in for Brisbane according to market analysts at Corelogic.Corelogic director of research, Tim Lawless, said today’s release of their June Home Value Index, should bolster confidence in detached Brisbane housing, despite a more dire result for units.Mr Lawless said a 0.8 per cent quarterly gain in Brisbane house prices had been offset by a 2.4 per cent drop in attached housing values.“There’s a two speed market for sure happening here in Brisbane.”Mr Lawless said the combined value of all dwellings was up 0.5 per cent for the June Quarter, which is very sustainable.“If you annualise it out, you’re looking at an annual growth rate of about two per cent.“But compared to the other, larger markets were still not seeing Brisbane showing any sort of surge in the pace of capital gains, just not yet anyway, but we are seeing some signs of population growth which is starting to improve from interstate.”Mr Lawless said Brisbane’s affordability advantage will be a catalyst for ongoing demand from interstate buyers.“Our median house price is slightly behind $500,000. That’s $200,000 less than what is in Melbourne and about half of Sydney’s, so I think that’s going to become more and more attractive to buyers in the long run.”More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home3 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor3 hours agoCorelogic head of research, Cameron Kusher, said many new residents were looking to South East Queensland’s coastal addresses.Mr Kusher said a lack of job prospects brought in buyers seeking lifestyle over career.“It seems to be a stronger housing market on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts than it is in Brisbane,” he said.“In Brisbane I think ultimately the market is just struggling to really kick because the job story is just not that strong.”Property Search Buyers’ Agency director, Scott McGeever, said he could understand the generally flat overall result given the analysis included our underperforming unit market.Mr McGeever said, however, detached homes within a seven kilometre radius of the CBD are solid.“We’re seeing buyer demand there. Sectors that are doing well will continue to do well.”Mr McGeever said attached housing would continue to struggle, and buyers must drill down into Brisbane’s various real estate sub-sectors to identify the best options.“Moving forward we see house and land to be pretty rock solid within that 10-kilometre radius,” Mr McGeever said.last_img read more

Special One?! Mourinho is no longer invincible

first_imgManchester United Time to change Jose’s nickname! Mourinho’s aura of invincibility is over Kris Voakes Man Utd Correspondent Last updated 2 years ago 16:00 11/8/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(51) Jose Mourinho Manchester United 2017 Getty Images Manchester United Premier League José Mourinho The Portuguese was the leading man in title races during the early part of his coaching career but has failed to match that success recently When Jose Mourinho arrived at Chelsea in 2004 and proclaimed, “I think I am a special one” he hadn’t seemed to realise the half of it. His Stamford Bridge unveiling came at a time when he was European champion and had also led Porto to back-to-back league titles, but they were to be only the start of his achievements.Red Devils 5/2 to fail to beat NewcastleSix years later he would be able to boast four more domestic crowns, two each with Chelsea and Inter, and was king of Europe once more with the Nerazzurri. It was an extraordinary run of success that persuaded Real Madrid that he was the only man in whom they could entrust the task of toppling Pep Guardiola’s seemingly unstoppable Barcelona.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player But as Mourinho stares on at Guardiola’s latest runaway train at Manchester City in 2017-18, the Manchester United boss faces the realisation that he is the ‘Special One’ no longer. While it was a slight misinterpretation of his words which landed him that most boastful of nicknames, the moniker appeared well placed up until recent years. Nowadays it is arguable he is just another in a pack of managers attempting to play catch-up.Comparing anyone’s efforts against those of Guardiola and City right now seems almost unfair. The Sky Blues have an unprecedented number of points after 11 Premier League games, and their goals tally has never been matched in the long history of English football. Moreover, their easiness on the eye has rightly had pretty much every neutral gasping. With Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva in the form of their lives, City look as appealing an outfit as the Premier League has produced in decades.HD Jose Mourinho Pep GuardiolaSo simply taking a glance at the table, spying City’s eight-point lead and denigrating Mourinho’s work at United is not altogether honourable. Even had the Portuguese managed to squeeze every last ounce of energy out of his squad so far this season there’s every chance that they’d be still trailing in City’s wake to some extent.Yet it has been telling that United have begun to lose ground on their neighbours over the past month, given that it has coincided with an inversion of the Red Devils’ earlier style of play. Against only the feckless Crystal Palace have United scored more than once in the opening 83 minutes of their last seven league fixtures since Paul Pogba suffered a hamstring injury in September, with Mourinho responding to the loss of his most important link between defence and attack by counting upon an effective counter-attack from minute one in the majority of games.Until the Frenchman was struck by injury, Mourinho was being hailed for his ability to get United playing quick, stylish and punishing football and his side entered the last international break only a single goal off the pace set by City. However, he has simply reverted to type over the past month and United’s results have suffered.While Mourinho was arguably the man that led a new revolution in football by finding a way to frustrate the life out of opponents, the game is fast showing signs of moving on without him. Sport’s amazing knack for evolving while staying the same has ensured that new dilemmas have been thrust Mourinho’s way, and his return of two league championships in the last seven seasons suggests he is yet to come up with a resounding answer.That is not to say his recent record is terrible. Most managers in football would love to be able to get their hands on a La Liga title and a Premier League championship over a seven-year span. But the crown is definitely slipping. Mourinho is looking set for a third straight season without a league title for the first time in his career and where once his approach came across as visionary, it now strikes as being somewhat behind the times.Jose Mourinho statsHe is also struggling to match his bravado of old. He appears increasingly surly when facing the media and has contradicted himself so often of late that only Donald Trump could put him to shame. The latest was his immediate reference to injuries after Sunday’s defeat at Chelsea, having weeks earlier insisted that he was above the “crying and crying” that other managers are guilty of over their casualty lists.United’s successes in the EFL Cup and Europa League last season were perhaps symptomatic of where they are right now under the 54-year-old. They are a belligerent bunch who can stifle opponents long enough to find their way through a knockout fixture or pair of home-and-away tussles. But keeping it tight away from home is a fool’s game when the target is not to overcome a hurdle in a cup competition but to force pressure upon an otherwise carefree league leader.Mourinho’s job now is arguably to reinvent himself. Football has always had room for great defensive organisation and will for as long as the game is played, but that does not mean that prioritising such qualities will lead to success without fail. In every job he took before arriving at Old Trafford Mourinho managed at least one title in his first two campaigns, but the times they are a-changing.Suddenly the prospect of the explosive Mourinho exit by which you can normally set your watch feels closer to many onlookers than a potential United title does. The club knew what they were getting into when signing up to Jose’s doctrine, but the desire to finally return to the very top was seen as reward enough for giving up the attacking principles on which their fans thrive.The problem there is that Mourinho is no longer at the very top himself, and as much as United are a footballing force scrambling for a way to return to former glories, so too is their manager.
