Britain shows interest in Kerala infrastructure projects

Quote:
In a major boost for the 'Emerging Kerala' Global Connect campaign, Britain Tuesday showed keen interest in infrastructure projects and promised to provide their details to companies back home.

British Deputy High Commissioner in Chennai Mike Nithavrianakis met with Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and senior officials here to discuss investment opportunities in Kerala's core sectors to accelerate its economic growth.

The Kerala team apprised Nithavrianakis of a number of major upcoming projects, including NIMZ (National Investment Manufacturing Zone), development of minor ports, excellence in higher education, LNG-based power plants and development of inland waterways.

"The British diplomat expressed keen interest in the projects and also promised to share these project profiles with top companies in the UK," Additional Chief Secretary (Industries) V. Somasundaran said.

"Plans are also on the anvil to bring in a ministerial level visitor from the UK," he added.

The British team also evinced interest in sectors like information technology, healthcare and education, which, along with infrastructure, are the core sectors of 'Emerging Kerala' Global Connect event that is slated to be held in Kochi in September.

"The UK team was very impressed with the positive response and appreciated the interaction with the chief minister and his team. In particular, they noted the highly skilled workforce and the quality of life in Kerala," said Alkesh Sharma, Secretary, Industries (I&P) and managing director, Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation.

The team also visited Technopark and Technocity to get first-hand knowledge of the activities and business opportunities there.

Labour unrest and strikes cost over Rs 500 cr in 2011

NEW DELHI: Labour unrest and strikes resulted in a production loss of at least Rs 502.6 crore last year, over three times more than that of the previous year.

In a written reply in Lok Sabha on Monday, labour and welfare minister Mallikarjun Kharge said production loss had touched Rs 597 crore in 2009, but it was contained to only Rs 167 crore in 2010. However, the statement did not mention any production loss in Haryana in 2011, though the country's largest car maker Maruti had said it had lost at least Rs 1,600 crore due to strike by workers at its Manesar plant.

The statement said 1.2 lakh mandays were lost in Haryana due to strikes and lockouts. Similarly, the reply mentioned "zero" production loss in the case of West Bengal and Maharashtra during 2011, though both the states reported mandays loss for the same period.

Kharge mentioned that production loss in Gujarat was the highest with Rs 210.4 crore and there were a total 28 disputes. Though the number of disputes was the maximum in Kerala at 31, the total production loss was only Rs 29.2 crore.

On the mechanism put in place for resolution of such disputes the minister stated that the Industrial Disputes Act facilitates intervention, mediation and conciliation by the industrial relation machinery for resolution of industrial disputes.

State Production Loss (in crores of Rs) Mandays Loss

Gujarat 210.4 43,439

Karnataka 158.4 1,16,490

Kerala 29.2 3,81,818

* For Jan-Dec 2011 period

Kerala posts lowest growth in fish production: Study

KOCHI: Kerala has recorded the lowest fish production growth rate amid coastal states in India during 2004-05 and 2010-11, says a study by the apex industry body, Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry in India (Assocham).

The state recorded a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of about 0.09 % during the period while Karnataka, which has emerged as the leading coastal state in fish production growth, has posted a CAGR of 11.48%. However, Kerala retains its supremacy over Karnataka in terms of total production.

With almost seven lakh tonnes of annual fish production, Kerala accounts for about 7.6% of India's total fish production which is currently estimated at about 91 lakh tonnes, D S Rawat, national secretary general of Assocham, told TOI here quoting the study.

Fish production in Kerala was between 6.6 lakh tonnes and 6.7 lakh tonnes during 2004-05 and 2007-08. But it rose to over 8.6 lakh tonnes in 2008-09 and again fell to about 6.6 lakh tonnes in the next year. Since then, fish production has remained less than 7 lakh tonnes in Kerala.

With an almost 600-km-long coastline, around five lakh fishermen are engaged in fishing operations across Kerala. With about five lakh tonnes of annual fish production, Karnataka accounts for almost 6% of overall fish production in India.

Amid leading coastal states in India, Andhra Pradesh ranks second in terms of growth in fish production with a CAGR of 8% and with over 13.5 lakh tonnes of fish production annually, the state accounts for over 16% of country's total fish production

West Bengal (4.85%), Tamil Nadu (4.47%), Gujarat (3.37%) and Odisha (3.25%) are the other leading fish producing states in India which recorded a fish production growth rate between three and four per cent during 2004-05 and 2010-11.

Fish production in India is rising at a CAGR of around five per cent and is likely to cross 104 lakh tonnes by 2015, according to Assocham. In terms of value, export of fish from India is likely to reach Rs 16,000 crore by 2015 from the current level of about Rs 13,500 crore.

India is the second largest fish producer in the world after China and accounts for nearly six per cent of the global fish production, of about 180 million tonnes, according to Assocham.

Coir exports up 19% at 3.82 lakh tonnes in FY’12

Quote:
NEW DELHI, JUNE 3:
Exports of coir and its products rose by 19 per cent to 3.82 lakh tonnes in the last fiscal, the Coir Board of India said.

In value terms also, it rose by 19 per cent to Rs 956.83 crore in the same period.

The country had exported 3.21 lakh tonnes of coir and its products worth Rs 807.07 crore in the 2010-11 fiscal.

Coir is used to make rope, mattress, rugs and carpets among others.

The Coir Board has set an export target of Rs 2,000 crore for the 12th Five-Year plan period (2012-2017).

Coir product making is an important cottage industry, contributing significantly to the economy of the major coconut growing states of Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.

India exports coir and its products to over 97 countries, with the US being the largest market.

Countries like the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, Australia, France, Spain, Canada, Japan, Greece, Sweden, South Africa, UAE, Portugal, and Denmark are the other major markets of coir and coir products.

India and Sri Lanka are two major coir producers in the world and account for around 90 per cent of about 3.50 lakh tonnes global production of the item

UP, Bihar surpass TN, Kerala in sending workers abroad

Quote:



Chennai: Ending a 15 year trend, the number of emigrants with ECR endorsement from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar has since last year surpassed their counterparts from Kerala and Tamil Nadu, so far the largest feeders for overseas employment.

According to the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar are the states which sent the largest number of workers abroad with Emigration Check Required endorsement in 2011.

"It only shows a shift in social profile in the southern states. This could mean that more workers from Tamil Nadu and Kerala are qualifying themselves educationally and do not need ECR endorsement anymore," a senior ministry official said.

On the other hand, more workers from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar may increasingly find overseas employment attractive, he said.

While Tamil Nadu saw a decline in numbers from 1,55,631 applicants in 2006 to 68,732 in 2011, Bihar saw an increase from 36,493 applicants in 2006 to 71,438 last year.

Kerala sent only 86,783 workers last year, as against 1,20,083 in 2006, while the numbers from Uttar Pradesh went up to 1,55,301 last year from 66,131 in 2006.

As per the new guidelines, the blank page two on passports is deemed to have been ECNR endorsed, which otherwise would specifically state "Emigration Check Required (ECR)."

Of desired destinations, Saudi Arabia continues to attract Indians most with 2,89,297 workers in 2011, while the United Arab Emirates and Oman were at second and third spots with 1,38,861 and 73,819 emigrants, the official said.

The total number of emigrants from India in the last six years are 6,76,912 (2006), 8,09,453 (2007), 8,48,601 (2008), 6,10,272 (2009), 6,41,356 (2010) and 6,26,565 (2011).

Over 750 Indians from Egypt and 17,927 from Libya and 846 from Yemen returned home with the help of Indian missions in these countries, following internal disturbances there last year.

‘Recession in Europe bodes ill for Kerala tourism'
Quote:
KOCHI, JUNE 17:
The recessionary trends prevailing in European countries and the crisis in some of the domestic airlines are likely to have an impact on Kerala's tourism sector this year.

Mr Jose Dominic, member of the executive committee of the Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Association of India (FHRAI), has said that the economic troubles of Europe have cast a shadow over the State tourism sector as 70 per cent of the foreign tourists visiting Kerala are from Europe.

Mr Dominic, who is also vice-president of South India Hotel and Restaurants Association (SIHRA), in an informal interaction with media persons, said that the crisis faced by Air India and Kingfisher airlines and escalation of airfare has affected the tourism sector. The cancellation of bookings as a result of these developments has gone up to as high as 50 per cent.

Besides, the fluctuations of the rupee had also destabilised the market, as the prices of various imported equipments required for the hotel industry had gone up by 30-40 per cent, he said.

These developments have forced the hospitality industry in the State to focus on the domestic tourism market. As part of wooing domestic tourists, there are plans to organise trade and marketing fairs in the State, Mr Dominic said.

‘CULINARY FORTNIGHT'

FHRAI also discussed the possibility of holding a “culinary fortnight” in Kochi as part of its marketing initiatives. He said that all hotels under the organisation will participate in the fair.

According to Mr Dominic, the number of foreign tourists visiting the State had gone up from 25,000 in 1980 to 7.5 lakh last year. Kerala's share in the total foreign tourist arrivals into the country increased from 1.5 per cent to 22 per cent during the period. As against this, the total number of domestic tourists reaching the State is around 80 lakh, he said.

FHRAI also requested the State government to rationalise the taxes being faced by the industry and also to introduce a more industry-friendly liquor policy.

The industry, he said, is also committed to implementing the provisions of the new Food Safety and Standards Act (FSSA). The FHRAI will take the initiative to set up Food Safety Laboratories in every State.

This will help the players in the industry to make self checks of food standards a regular affair, he added.

Romancing the rain, Kerala style
Quote:

People from other States constitute a major chunk of visitors to tourist locales in Kerala during
the summer and monsoon months. A scene from Fort Kochi.


Hospitality stakeholders in Kerala’s tourism sector are vying with one another to woo visitors during the annual monsoon season, which was traditionally considered to be the off-season for tourists visiting the State.

Domestic tourists are being encouraged to visit Kerala even during the annual monsoon season, which is traditionally the off-season.

It was about eight years ago that Kerala Tourism (KT) began to promote the monsoon as a Dream Season, with the stakeholders – offering accommodation and tour packages at competitive rates from the time the monsoon begin in early June to the end of September when the regular tourist season kicks off. The target group now includes people from the country and Middle East which reel under the summer heat. Westerners generally shun the monsoon because they yearn for a sunny climate.

This monsoon, players in the sector hope that a share of Indians who travel abroad will instead visit Kerala because of the fall in value of the rupee and the agitation by pilots of Air India.

The KT website has listed a host of resorts, hotels, home stays, ayurveda centres, houseboats and tour operators, their facilities and special tariff for the season. “We have begun media campaigns in north Indian States to woo visitors. We are participating in nine trade fairs in two-tier cities, targeting people including those who would be on Diwali vacation,” said a KT official.

A section of hospitality stakeholders said that KT must do more to promote monsoon tourism.

“The monsoon provides a romantic setting, especially in places like Munnar. More awareness campaigns must be done,” said T. Damu, former member of the National Tourism Advisory Council and vice-president of Indian Hotels Company Limited.

Apart from being the ideal time for Ayurveda treatments, agrarian/farm tourism holds much potential during the monsoons. Ethic food festivals too can be organised, where karkidaka kanji, bamboo-rice payasam which hold medicinal value can be served.

The State’s water bodies have been marketed well and now its time to promote the rains. NGOs can be roped in to ensure cleanliness of locales, he said.

The State-run KTDC is decking up the Bolghatty Palace Hotel, its prime property in Kochi that abuts the backwaters, so that guests can serenade the rains. The property has a mix of heritage and non-heritage hotel rooms apart from a few honeymoon cottages.

“Our Dream Season tariff is very competitive and the cottages are being done up. As a result, there is higher room occupancy than last year. The adjacent international marina is another attraction and we have 24 rooms overlooking the marina,” said Alex P. Joshua, manager. The marketing by KT was not as good as during previous years, said the executive director of cgh-earth George Dominic. “The AI pilots strike would affect the arrival of tourists from the Middle East. Schools reopening across the country by mid-June, is another factor. But we can expect young couples who are on vacation,” he said.

The monsoon is an ideal time for promoting health tourism in Kerala. Apart from Ayurveda centres, spas too are in demand, said Sree Kumar Shekhar, the director, sales and marketing of Le Meridien, Kochi.

The AI pilots strike and the skyrocketing ticket price have resulted in many Arabs cancelling their Kerala trip and visiting Sri Lanka, which has a cheaper airfare, he said.

Cochin SEZ beats recession

Quote:
The Cochin Special Economic Zone has weathered the Eurozone crisis and dogged recessionary trends in other parts of the world to record a 63 per cent rise in exports during the last financial year.

The big performance was aided by a massive increase in gem and jewellery exports worth Rs.28,473 crore during 2011-12, compared to Rs.16,951 crore during the previous financial year.

According to reports earlier, total exports from special economic zones in the country grew to Rs.3.6 lakh crore during the last financial year at the rate of 15 per cent from the previous financial year’s level of Rs. 3.1 lakh crore.

The total export turnover at the CSEZ during 2011-12 stood at Rs.29,961 crore against Rs.18,311 crore during the pervious year, gem and jewellery accounting for bulk of the growth.

Textiles were one area where there as a marginal fall in export earnings during the last financial year compared to the previous year. Textile exports were worth Rs.113 crore during 2011-12, down from the previous year’s level of Rs. 167 crore. Agro and food exports, worth Rs.118 crore during 2010-11 went up to Rs.161 crore during the last financial year. Engineering goods exports were worth Rs.75 crore last financial year compared to Rs.69 crore during the previous year.

Electronic software products accounted for a total export of Rs.314 crore during 2011-12 compared to Rs.244 crore during the previous year. Hardware exports stood at Rs.468 crore during the last financial year, marginally up from the previous year’s level of Rs. 464 crore. Plastic and rubber products and garments were smaller portions of the total exports earnings.
Great going!! 63% growth in these bad times, close to 30K Crores exports, and 314Cr in Software exports!!

Food-processing a hot sector
Quote:
Food processing appears to be emerging as a hot sector for investment, if the preliminary meetings recently held across districts as a run-up to the ‘Emerging Kerala’ investor meet to be held in Kochi in September are any indication.

According to officials at the various district industrial centres across the state in several districts projects connected withfood processing were in the range of at least 40 per cent.

The meeting had been convened by the Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation with entrepreneurs district-wise.

Besides food processing, the other sector that had entrepreneur interest was tourism. The projects proposed were mainly in the small and medium enterprise sector and included a wide range of products from pickles to ready-to-eat stuff.

The KSIDC executive director, Mr TP Thomas Kutty, said thatfood processing would certainly get priority.

A separate sectoral session on food processing would be there at during the Emerging Kerala meet. Special exclusive food processing zones would be set up within industrial growth centres in the state. A theme park for food processing was also under consideration, he added.

The state has been in the forefront of seafood processing. Incidentally, the nearly Rs 1,300-crore annual sea food processing is just around 15-20 per cent of the installed capacity of the industry.

The situation is much better in the spice processing sector with leading players and the state way ahead in spice oils and oleoresins.

While efforts have been on to make the state the hub for spice and seafood processing, the interest shown by entrepreneurs in other food processingitems should help make the state be a hub for processing most of the food items, say leaders in the industry who expect the Emerging Kerala meet to be a platform for giving it the much-needed push.

There used to be (not sure if they are still there) a company that exported Samosas from CSEZ. One Mr. Pillai first started a feeding bottle plant (and we named him മുലക്കുപ്പി പിള്ള for that) and later diversified into samosas. Those were very good stuff.

IMHO, there is huge opportunities to export coconut stuff. You must see the things coming from Sri Lanka and Philipines!

'Kerala's 2-wheeler market is booming'
Quote:
Kerala is right now the market to be in for two-wheeler companies, according to Roy Kurian, national business head of India Yamaha Motor.

"Kerala's two-wheeler market is booming and we expect it to grow by 30% in calendar year 2012. Currently, we have 15 dealers and will add three new dealers this year. Our target is to drive up the number of dealers to more than 20 in 2013," he said while talking to reporters in Kochi on Saturday.

"Kerala is essentially a scooter market. Every month, 32,000 bikes and 22,000 scooters are sold by different manufacturers in Kerala. In Alappuzha, scooter sales match that of bikes. The popularity of scooters could be attributed to the highly literate and employed women in the state as well as the image of the scooter as a family vehicle," Kurian added.

However, countrywide, bike owners are downgrading their bikes due to rising petrol prices, Kurian observed. "In 2010 and 2011, people used to upgrade from 100 cc bikes to 150 cc bikes, but as petrol prices shot up, customers are buying more 100 cc bikes," he said.

It's time to carve out a career in tourism sector
Quote:
Two lakh job opportunities await people in Kerala in the tourism and hospitality industry, according to Dr Rajashree Ajith, director of the Kerala Institute of Tourism and Travel Studies (KITTS).

She was speaking at the inaugural function of the two-day education expo organized by the department of tourism and KITTS at Ernakulam Town Hall on Sunday.

"According to reports of UNWTO, there will be 535 million job opportunities in South-East Asia, including India, by 2030. The benefits will definitely trickle down to Kerala and we need industry-ready, employable youth for this sector," said Rajashree stressing on the need for professional education in the field.

"KITTS will launch diploma courses for different fields such as air cargo, logistics, retail management and spa therapies by July. Due importance will be given to language skill development in German, French and Arabic. The institute claims 100% placement records.

KITTS in partnership with a Bangalore-based interface organization iNurture will be conducting courses in Thiruvanathapuram, Kochi and Thalassery," Rajashree said.

Public and private institutes in the tourism and hospitality sector are present at the expo, offering advice to those interested. The education fair was inaugurated by Hibi Eden MLA along with Riyaz Ahmed, managing director of Abad group.

"There are more than 43 lakh people in Kerala who had registered with various employment exchanges in the state. It is sad that they are trying for the 20,000-odd government job postings. Instead of waiting for it, these qualified people should look at the opportunities in this dynamic field," said Hibi.

Kerala charts Rs 650-cr plan for fisheries sector
Quote:
The State government has initiated steps to implement projects worth Rs 650 crore for the development of fisheries sector.

The State Fisheries Minister, Mr K. Babu, said the projects will be implemented this year in association with the Fisheries department, Coastal Areas Development Corporation, Matsyafed, and Fishermen’s Welfare Fund Board.

The Minister was talking after inaugurating the valedictory session of the State-level leadership camp of the Kerala Pradesh Matsya Thozhilali Congress.

INADEQUATE FUNDS

The fund allocated in the State budget for the fisheries sector is inadequate. Therefore, funds will be mobilised from other agencies for improving infrastructure in the sector, he said.

The Minister pointed out that the benefits of Samashawasa project will be distributed through banks. The biometric cards for fishing workers will be distributed in three months.

He said that the government is giving high preference for the development of fisheries sector. He alleged that the previous government has done anything for the development of coastal areas despite receiving Rs 1,400 crore under the Tsunami rehabilitation scheme.
