ST. PETERSBURG Joel Edmundson Jersey , March 25 (Xinhua) -- A Boeing 737 passenger jet landed safely Wednesday at St. Petersburg's Pulkovo airport, with only one of its two engines in operation.

NAIROBI Carl Gunnarsson Jersey , March 25 (Xinhua) -- Investments in trade infrastructure as well as the removal of bureaucratic and procedural barriers to economic integration have positioned the East Africa region as the destination of choice for doing business, a study has shown.


A study published on Wednesday by the TradeMark East Africa (TMEA), a donor-funded organization formed to help regional states speed up integration Jaden Schwartz Jersey Sale , said the harmonization of product standards has expanded the East African Community (EAC) trade basket.


Encouraging results achieved over the past year, including investments in key ports have resulted in reduced cargo transit times on East Africa's main transport corridors, and accelerated implementation of the EAC's Single Customs Territory Vladimir Tarasenko Jersey Sale , said TMEA Annual Report.


TMEA Chief Executive Officer Frank Matsaert said the reduction of average time to clear goods at Kenya's Mombasa port and transport them to Kampala, Uganda to fours days has buoyed the investments in the EAC region.


Matsaert said the reduction in the number of customs declarations by 90 percent leading to an increase in trade volumes, an example of fuel imports into Uganda which has increased from 32. 1 million litres to 108 million litres are behind surge in investments.


"The results presented in this annual report point to an ever improving trade environment which is expected to spur investments and ultimately benefit the citizens of East Africa Jaden Schwartz Blues Jersey ," he said in Nairobi.


He said poor infrastructure, delays in cargo clearance and customs procedures at the port contribute to the high cost of doing business along the transport corridor.


Mombasa port serves Uganda, Rwanda Vladimir Tarasenko Blues Jersey , Burundi, eastern DR Congo and Southern Sudan. Traders from the landlocked states had threatened to dump the northern corridor for an alternative route through Tanzania, citing port inefficiency and corruption on Kenyan roads.


Matsaert said the ongoing infrastructure upgrades at the port would ensure increased capacity to handle growing volumes and associated demand for port services.


The report details TMEA's vision of enhancing interconnectedness in the region through trade by highlighting some of the successful projects they have supported.


Notable among these is the recent signing of the Mombasa Port Community Charter Jaden Schwartz Womens Jersey , witnessed by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, 25 government and private sector agencies who committed to support initiatives that will increase efficiency at the Mombasa port and the Northern Corridor.

UNITED NATIONS, March 27 (Xinhua) -- A new report from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) stressed that managing urbanization sustainably poses new challenges and opportunities to recast food and agriculture systems in ways that benefit both cities and the countryside, a UN spokesman told reporters here Monday.


""This new report presented by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the FAO addresses a wide range of issues linked to urbanization,"" Farhan Haq, the deputy UN spokesman, said at a daily news briefing here.


""Meeting the rising urban demand for food could generate much-needed employment and development prospects for the people who will remain in the countryside of developing countries while also making healthier food easier to access in cities,"" Haq said.


""But growing urban demand will not automatically benefit small farmers, so we must look for solutions that can seize on the opportunities, and avoid the downside of increasing urbanization,"" FAO Director-General Jose Graziano da Silva said in a new release on the report.


Better roads, reliable and extensive electrification, refrigerated transportation and better storage facilities are all key to success, Graziano da Silva said, noting that such transformation would also lead farmers to grow higher-value and more nutritious produce, which is essential for the proper nutrition of growing urban populations.


The report noted that growing urban populations will be especially visible in Africa, as a majority of the continent's fast-growing population will be living in cities by 2030. Globally, some 2.5 billion more people will be living in urban areas than do today. Africa and Asia will account for 90 per cent of the increase.


Quality concerns over locally produced food by urban residents in many developing countries often result in greater preference for imported varieties, according to the report. Better vertical integration of the domestic food value chain -- requiring improved processing, milling, cleaning, marketing, bagging, branding and possibly even supermarkets -- could remedy that.


Such an effort would produce a host of agribusiness jobs and enhance the agricultural sector's ability to make productivity-boosting investments.


The report also highlights the role of intermediate towns, which can play a catalyzing role in mediating the urban-rural nexus. The vicinity of such towns tends to provide smallholder farmers with greater opportunities to market their products and share in the gains from economic growth.


Smaller towns also offer migration destinations that more likely help the rural poor escape from poverty than big cities do.


""Intermediate cities can be, and most of the time, are, the effective promoter of rural development,"" said Graziano da Silva.
