About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Liverpool defender Robertson reveals squad agreement over verbal clashesby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool defender Andrew Robertson has revealed the players have been open about the need to argue with eachother.Scotland’s skipper says there is a pact inside the dressing-room to take flak from a team-mate without it escalating into an on-field row.He said: “There were a couple of arguments out there today. A couple of things that needed to be said – and they were.“We all have the attitude that that if someone says something to you, you have to take it on the chin.”If you don’t agree with it, you deal with it at full-time or half-time and speak to one another.“When you are out on the pitch and it’s 100 miles an hour you don’t have time to discuss why something was said to you.“We have spoken together about this as a team. We do discuss things. We have said that’s it’s having that honesty between us which is important.“Whether it’s the youngest player – someone like Trent Alexander-Arnold – tells you to do something and he believes it’s right then you do it. You can go back and ask Trent for an explanation later – if you haven’t agreed with it, obviously.“When people are arguing on the pitch, it can have a negative effect and you can get distracted. I think that’s something the lads have done really well since the start of the season. It shows the respect between us.“There are a lot of leaders out there now.“Virgil Van Dijk is captain of his country. We have a fantastic captain in Jordan Henderson who clocked up 300 appearances for the club against Wolves – and that’s a great achievement.“We’ve got James Miner as well, who is a fantastic professional. There are plenty of leaders on the park – I’m including Dejan Lovren in that, as well.“And the more leaders we have got out there, the better, as far as I’m concerned.”
This is consistent with the IMF’s position of the need to spur higher growth; reduce and maintain the public-sector wage bill at nine per cent of gross domestic product, and pursue modernisation of the civil service; and further strengthen the financial sector. Story Highlights Finance and the Public Service Minister, Dr. the Hon. Nigel Clarke, says the Government is pleased with Jamaica’s successful completion of the fourth International Monetary Fund (IMF) Precautionary Stand-By Arrangement (PSBA) Review.This, following the IMF Executive Board’s consideration and approval of the Review at its meeting on November 5.Consequent on Jamaica passing the fourth PSBA Review, an additional US$226 million is now available to the Government, if needed, which brings the total credit accessible under the PSBA to US$1.2 billion.In a statement, IMF Board Acting Chair and Deputy Managing Director, Tao Zhang, noted the Government’s continued impressive track record under the PSBA.This, he pointed out, is primarily evidenced by sustained macroeconomic stability, reduced public debt, and improving social and unemployment indicators.Speaking in an interview with JIS News, Dr. Clarke said the Review’s outcome suggests that Jamaica’s economic conditions “have never been better”.He cited among the supporting indicators, first-quarter growth of 2.2 per cent for 2018/19, which, he noted, is the highest for that period in 10 years; further reduction in unemployment to 8.4 per cent as at July 2018, the lowest in the country’s history, according to the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN); and reduction in the poverty rate, which fell to 17.1 per cent in 2016, the lowest in 10 years.The Minister further noted the fall in inflation to 3.2 per cent at the end of July 2018; a 16 per cent increase in private-sector credit, particularly to unbanked stakeholders; and a 25 per cent expansion in mortgages issued by the National Housing Trust (NHT) and other financial institutions.“So, we are seeing individuals and businesses taking advantage of what is an unprecedented time in Jamaica’s economic history,” he said.He noted the need for further expansion of credit to the private sector in order to accelerate growth, and for more private-sector stakeholders to take advantage of the opportunities available to them to boost investments in order to sustain the cycle of growth “and even push it to higher heights”.Dr. Clarke told JIS News that the Administration remains focused on ensuring that Jamaica continues to be fiscally responsible, and pursues all avenues and strategies for attaining higher levels of sustainable growth.This is consistent with the IMF’s position of the need to spur higher growth; reduce and maintain the public-sector wage bill at nine per cent of gross domestic product, and pursue modernisation of the civil service; and further strengthen the financial sector.“This is a Government that aspires to do better and sets goals that are beyond what is considered immediately possible… because we believe that all of us, as Jamaicans, are an aspirational people,” Dr. Clarke said.Regarding the additional US$226 million now available to the country with the passing of the fourth PSBA Review, the Minister said that “this puts us in a very strong position”, in the event Jamaica needs additional funding support to counter domestic or exogenous shocks.The Precautionary Stand-By Arrangement, which succeeded the IMF’s Extended Fund Facility (EFF) in 2016, is slated to conclude in October 2019. Regarding the additional US$226 million now available to the country with the passing of the fourth PSBA Review, the Minister said that “this puts us in a very strong position”, in the event Jamaica needs additional funding support to counter domestic or exogenous shocks. In a statement, IMF Board Acting Chair and Deputy Managing Director, Tao Zhang, noted the Government’s continued impressive track record under the PSBA.
