Dr. Rufus Ewing: “Another payment is being processed currently to be paid either today or tomorrow for the month of April, in the amount of $2,264,212 and the payment for the month of May, because we pay in advance of the month, the payment for May will be made shortly.”This information surfaced during May 12, 2015 House of Assembly Debate, where the Premier admitted that payments to Interhealth Canada were not up to date, due in large part to discrepancies in the billing to government. A parliamentary questioned leveled at the Nation’s leader and Health Minister by the Opposition Leader revealed that TCIG is behind on the clinical payments but not the infracal payments. Premier, Hon. Dr. Rufus Ewing: “The delays were due mainly because there were some discrepancies and due to lack of information and there was some dispute in regards to the invoices, those have been clarified – partially, but to the satisfaction that they payment – we think it is prudent that the payment be made so as to not put in jeopardy the provision of the clinical services at the hospital to the people so that all individuals can get their clinical care. Nonetheless, we still will be in search of additional information that is required to make the necessary adjustments.”In total, TCIG pays nearly $4 million per month for the clinical and infracal costs for our TCI Hospitals combined. The Premier said the invoices in dispute are likely to change and that the reconciliation process takes place quarterly. During that Question and Answer period on May 12, it was also replied that the Draft Immigration Bill would be tabled in parliament before the end of June.

High Inflation Economic Slowdown Hits Indian PC Market Sales Decline by 59

first_imgThe overall sale of desktops and laptops in India has gone down in the third quarter of this year as compared to last year, recent data showed.According to market research firm Gartner Inc, India’s mobile PC market, which totalled nearly 2.9 million units in the third quarter of 2012, recorded a fall of 5.9 percent during the corresponding period last year.”Consumers accounted for 47 percent of total PC sales in the third quarter of 2012 compared to 55 percent in the third quarter of 2011,” said Vishal Tripathi, principal research analyst at Gartner.”This emphasises the fact that despite the festive season and availability of various end user schemes on PCs, the market was impacted by high inflation, global economic uncertainty and limited share of wallet as consumers preferred to spend on other consumer durables,” he added.In the third quarter this year, parallel imports and white boxes which accounted up to 47 percent of the whole desktop market showed a decline of 35 percent as compared to the same period of the previous year. Mobile PCs helped drive overall market growth with a similar 23 percent growth on a year-on-year basis. Lenovo retained the top position in the third quarter of 2012 with help of factors like the execution of the Tamil Nadu government order, and a strong increase in the consumer space. While HP’s PC shipment grew around 10 percent, Dell declined 22 percent compared to the third quarter of 2011. For local vendor’s like HCL PC market share declined to 3.4 percent in the third quarter with a 43 percent year-on-year decline from the third quarter in 2011. Acer, Dell, HP and Lenovo represented around 60.6 percent of the market.last_img read more
