Cash incentive eased on high-value remittance | The Business Standard 13 May 2020 A Bangladesh Bank circular says beneficiaries of inward remittance up to $5,000 or Tk5 lakh would be entitled to avail the cash incentive without showing any documents of wage earners The central bank on Tuesday enhanced the paper-free incentive receivable limit against inward remittance in the wake of a sharp fall in remittance earnings in April amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Bangladesh Bank said in a circular that beneficiaries of inward remittance up to $5,000 (or Tk5 lakh) would be entitled to avail the cash incentive without showing any documents of the wage earners. In case of receiving remittance beyond $5,000, the beneficiaries will have to provide documents of the wage earners within two months. Earlier, remittance beneficiaries were given 15 days to show proof of the wage earners. On the other hand, the banks had...

ITF message to seafarers | ITF Global 11 May 2020 Message from ITF Seafarers’ Section chair David Heindel. This is a message for every ITF seafarers affiliate and every one of their members – the seafarers who have professionally and diligently fulfilled their jobs during this unprecedented and uncertain time. Thank you for continuing to transport vital goods and keeping global trade moving during the Covid-19 pandemic. Without your sacrifice and the sacrifices of many other transport workers, the world would have been in a much worse state and likely would have come to a complete standstill. On March 12, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the Covid-19 outbreak a pandemic. In response, countries started closing their borders and imposing social distancing and restrictions on movement to try and contain the spread of the virus. Despite these restrictions and the threat of exposure to the virus, our unions and...

Floating Tanker Flotilla to Remain in Play as Conditions Favor More Crude Storage in Hellenic Shipping News 11/05/2020 About 70 laden VLCCs remain stationary for at least 4 weeks, prove that the contango “play” in the crude tanker market is very much at play. In its latest weekly report, shipbroker Gibson said that “in recent weeks reports about floating storage have featured in the international press. In the 2nd half of April Reuters reported that oil held in tanker floating storage reached at least 160 million barrels, including 60 VLCCs, up massively from levels witnessed just a couple of months ago. There is nothing new about floating storage, which we classify as vessels laden and stationary for at least a four week period. Back in 2015/16 up to 50 VLCCs were involved in crude floating storage, in part due to a contango play and partly due to Iranian sanctions....
