Nathan Deal for establishing themselves internationally. 1:16Last year was another record year for Georgia. The state’s exports grew by 5 percent. And imports were up more than 11 percent.The goal is always to make sure your exports are greater than your imports, says Mary Waters. She oversees Georgia’s international trade team with the Georgia Department of Economic Development.  “We know that companies that export tend to grow faster, pay higher wages, create twice as many jobs, and so the department as a whole has really focused efforts on helping Georgia be more successful in the international marketplace,” Waters says.  The department markets Georgia products in 11 countries in Europe, South America and Asia. It also works on getting companies to move to Georgia.Jon Tanklage is president of Marukan Vinegar USA. It’s a Japanese rice vinegar brewing company that makes sake, soy sauce and vinegar. They plan to spend $13 million on a new facility in Griffin this summer.   “We drew a triangle between three major hub cities in the East, with Atlanta being one of them,” Tanklage says. “And I think that the climate, the incentives that the state of Georgia was able to offer and then the property itself was very attractive for us.” He says it also helps that other Japanese companies like Yamaha and Mitsubishi Hitachi already have a presence in Georgia.  last_img read more

Ex-PhilRice official pleads guilty to lesser offenses

first_imgSIGN UP TO DAILY NEWSLETTERCLICK HERE TO SIGN-UP The Sandiganbayan Sixth Division has granted the plea bargaining agreement between former Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) Executive Director Ronilo A. Beronio and the prosecution which allowed him to plead guilty to the lesser offense of breach of conduct instead of graft.MANILA BULLETIN FILE PHOTOBeronio was slapped with three counts of graft alongside former Department of Agriculture (DA) Secretary Arthur Yap, who was also the PhilRice board chairman back then, and eight other PhilRice officials.The charges were made because Beronio and the others reportedly entered into contracts that were grossly disadvantageous to the government. They signed Hold Out Agreements (HOA) with the Philippine National Bank (PNB), wherein PhilRice funds were used as security for the loan obligation of its employees under the PhilRice Car Plan.Beronio himself was one of the beneficiaries of the PhilRice Car Plan.On May 24, 2019, Beronio entered a “Not Guilty” plea to the charges. He subsequently manifested that he would like to plead guilty to three counts of violation of Section 7(a) of R.A. 6713 or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards.Both the prosecution and defense then submitted a Joint Motion to Approve Plea Bargaining Agreement on September 25, 2019.The anti-graft court warned Beronio that he may be punished twice for the very same offense should he plead guilty to breach of conduct, so he filed a Waiver of Right Against Double Jeopardy.Because of this, the court granted the Joint Motion and scheduled the re-arraignment of Beronio on October 2.The five-page resolution was signed by Sixth Division Chairperson Sarah Jane Fernandez with the concurrence of Associate Justices Karl Miranda and Kevin Narce Vivero.last_img read more
