In Russia, the landscape is a bit more complicated, given that Roskomnadzor is determined to limit the number of licensed bookmakers, and has recently stepped up its efforts to block Western European operators from targeting its national consumers. We are looking forward to sharing our insight on the current situation at Betting on Football 2017.”Portnov said: “It is clear that many markets out east are now moving towards the standards set by western Europe with regard to clearer regulation – even if tax rates remain contentious – and that will also inevitably lead to greater revenues in the years to come.”Halikias added: “It is particularly interesting for us to discuss the current situation in Russia, given that Favbet was one of the many Eastern European focused operators restricted access to the market by Roskomnadzor. We are looking forward to sharing knowledge about regulation changes in Russia and some of the other Eastern European countries on a high level panel at Stamford Bridge.”This highly-anticipated #bofcon2017 session will be moderated by Dan Iliovici. Formerly an executive manager for Rombet, the association which protects the interests of the growing number of operators that engage in land-based and online gambling activities in Romania, Iliovici was recently confirmed as president of the country’s national gambling office and regulatory body, the ONJN. He will be overseeing a new legislative framework, introduced in 2015, which opened the national market and made it more attractive to international operators.Alongside Romania, the session will also deliver updates on two of the most populated countries in Eastern Europe, Russia and Poland. Russian media regulator Roskomnadzor awarded a handful of online gambling licences in the summer of 2016, but continues to monitor the likes of Winline, 888.ru and Leon.ru with strict payment-processing regulations and taxes on wagers.Over the last few years, under instruction from the Russian government, Roskomnadzor has blocked IP and payment-transaction services to numerous European operators including Unibet and BwinParty, which were deemed to be illegally targeting its national consumers. Just last month, BetVictor confirmed the suspension of its Russian betting services.Meanwhile, EnergyBet described the situation in Poland as “highly restrictive and hostile” upon withdrawing from the market. Just a few days later, William Hill followed suit, citing the refusal to amend a 12% online gambling turnover tax which is “unworkable for international operators” and appears to be designed to create favourable conditions for the state-owned Totalizator Sportowy.Click here to visit the event website and buy your Betting on Football ticket todayThe full agenda is available @ http://sbcevents.co.uk/betting-on-football-2017/agenda/

Liberia’s lead transparency watchdog, the Liberia Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (LEITI) has expressed delight over Sime Darby Plantation’s investment in Western Liberia.The Head of LEITI’s Secretariat Mr. Samson S. Tokpah, who led a LEITI delegation on a one-day compliance verification tour within Sime Darby’s concession areas in Bomi and Grand Cape Mount Counties, observed during the week that the Malaysian Conglomerate was doing a lot for the local communities in addition to the terms laid down in its concession agreement with the Liberian Government.Mr. Tokpah said he was quite impressed over the level of dedication and commitment Sime Darby was showing in honoring its commitment to the 63-year Concession Agreement that was signed with the Government back in 2009, and taking it a step beyond.“I am quite impressed with the dedication and commitment that you are showing in honoring the concession that you signed with the Liberian Government in 2009. For us at LEITI, as a global watch-dog and a transparency body, our job is to strike a balance between business interest and accountability;” Mr.Tokpah said during the tour.The Transparency top-man said, he acknowledges the daunting challenges Sime Darby faces in its land development plan for Liberia. He said, however, that there was a more compelling need to move the process forward through accountability and transparency in doing business in developing countries like Liberia.He continued that his institution has a more global role to play, when it comes to verifying how each party to the concession respects the Concession Agreement (CA).“The government has a role to play, and I think the government must respect that responsibility to the people and to you the investors. Civil society has a role as well; then of course you the investor have a role. If we can all honor our individual responsibilities, it is only at that point that we can consider it a good one,” LEITI Boss said.The LEITI delegation visited SDPL clinic at Clerks, Bomi County. The Clinic provides free healthcare services to residents of Bomi and Grand Cape Mount counties. Beneficiaries include employees and non-employees of Sime Darby as well as residents from other surrounding towns and villages, and accident victims.Tokpah and his team also visited Sime Darby schools within the concession area, including Matambo Estate in Grand Cape Mount County. Matambo is Sime Darby’s first estate in Africa, and stands as one of the best among others within the agriculture sector, according to Finance Minister.Apart from the healthcare centers in Clerks, Bomi County, Matambo Estate has a school, a clinic, and a day-care center for children of working mothers, a football field, a church, a mosque, a community hall and a supermarket.Each of the 186 housing units within the estate has three bed rooms for ordinary workers including a living room, one bath and a kitchen. Sime Darby Head of Project, Upstream Liberia, Roslin Azmy Hassan, said during the tour that his company was committed to developing more land in Liberia as it has done with Matambo.Hassan pledged that Sime Darby will construct 88 central housing complexes in Liberia as well as employ 35,000 Liberians once the company is fully operational.According to the first 4-year development plan, Sime Darby was expected to develop more than 24,000 hectares of green fields into oil palm and rubber; to date, however, the company has been able to plant only slightly over 10,000 hectares with oil palm and rubber.Sime Darby also has more than 2,900 Liberians employed as permanent workers, earning more than US$5.65 as daily wages.According to the Ministry of Labor, the daily wage offered by Sime Darby is the highest in the Agriculture sector. Employees of Sime Darby are also enjoying free medical insurance as well housing and educational benefits for their children.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
