Saudi says will remain a reliable supplier of oil to India Pradhan

first_imgNew Delhi: Saudi Arabia’s new energy minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman has assured India that his country will remain a reliable supplier to the world’s third-largest energy consumer and is committed to investing in the country. Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on a three-nation visit courted the new Saudi Arabian minister in Jeddah. “Met the newly appointed Saudi Minister of Energy HRH Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman in Jeddah and renewed my earlier acquaintance with him during his previous assignments with Saudi Ministry of Energy,” Pradhan tweeted. Saudi Arabia’s King Salman over the weekend dismissed Khalid Al-Falih as the energy minister of the OPEC and replaced him with one of his sons. Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, a longtime top energy ministry official, is an older half-brother to the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. “Saudi Minister reiterated Saudi Arabia’s commitment to remain a reliable and sustainable partner in hydrocarbon supplies and also on Saudi investments in India,” Pradhan said in another tweet. Saudi Arabia is India’s second-largest oil supplier behind Iraq and is investing public and private sector refineries to gain a foothold in the world’s fastest-growing energy market. Its national oil company Saudi Aramco has signed a pact to take equity in a planned giant oil refinery on the west coast and is also in talks with Reliance Industries to buy a 20 per cent interest in its Jamnagar refineries and petrochemical complex. Until Prince Abdulaziz’s appointment late on Saturday night, Saudi Arabia’s oil ministry has been since 1960 headed by civilian technocrats. His elevation concentrates more power within the immediate family of King Salman, who ascended to the throne in 2015. Pradhan later traveled to the UAE where he met its President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and captains of oil and gas industry. “Had a healthy exchange on further deepening bilateral trade and investment in the energy sector,” he said. “Also, discussed enhancing India’s upstream footprints in UAE and mutual investments in the entire oil and gas value chain in both our countries.” He also held a meeting with representatives of the steel industry of the UAE in Dubai and “discussed realising trade potential between two countries in the steel sector.” “Also, invited them to invest in the Indian steel sector,” he said. “India & UAE have accomplished some historical milestones in the O&G sector under the leadership of Hon. PM Shri @narendramodi and President of UAE, HE Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Reiterated to take this friendship forward and work together on mutually aligned priorities,” he added.last_img read more

We dont know how to take advantage of Messi Tagliafico

first_imgThe Argentina national team left-back believes his country has the best player in the world, but they don’t know how to use him.At club level, Barcelona star Lionel Messi is simply one of the best, if not the best player in the whole world.But at the national team level, he has had trouble, not being able to lift any silverware with the senior squad.This has pushed him away from the team as he hasn’t played with them since they were eliminated by France in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.But for defender Nicolas Tagliafico, the problem is his country doesn’t know how to take advantage of a player like Messi.“We have seen two glorious stages in our football with [Cesar Luis] Menotti and [Carlos] Bilardo, which are two different ways of understanding football,” Tagliafico was quoted by Goal.“We have not found out which is the best [style of play] for our time, or which one is the best to help Leo [Messi].”Top 5 players who can actually replace Messi and Ronaldo Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 13, 2019 After Pep Guardiola’s latest defense of Messi and Ronaldo, we need to start talking about the Top 5 players who can replace them.Replacing Messi and…“He’s the best player in the world and we do not know how to take advantage of him,” he added.“We have to find an idea or a coach that makes us understand the opportunity he represents and bring that order we need.”“It’s not the same to be in a club for 15 years knowing everything,” he tried to explain.“In the national team, either because of the change of president, coach or because of the passion we have that blinds us, we are not able to put together projects every year. That’s not easy.”“Leo did not have the luck to be crowned. He reached three finals, but we do not have the project that, for example, Barca does,” he concluded.Argentina will play two friendlies on March: the first against Venezuela on the 23rd, while three days later they will play against Morocco.last_img read more

The all inclusive brand factory

first_imgIf diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then luxury brands are surely their best acquaintances. The obsession with brands is common to women and men world over. The word ‘brand’ is synonymous with a marquee, which indicates a certain product identity that is well known. A product that is recognised is casually referred to as a brand. Among brands, however, there are categories starting from everyday use products like toilet soap to luxury brands like high-end cars. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Brands may be around us, but often we take them for granted unless of course we have forked out a lot of money to buy a branded product. For example, if we see a luxury car, the first thing that crosses our mind is how much it costs or how expensive it is to maintain. Thus, it is human nature to notice a br and that is associated with an expensive product. This phenomenon is what has propelled the huge demand for luxury brands. Be it an expensive suit or an expensive handbag — the primary object is to flaunt it so that our friends, acquaintances or even passersby notice. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixOther than a few people I know, most people possess luxury brands that act as an extension of their flamboyant personality. On a derogatory note, such people are called ‘brand wh***s’ as they commonly switch luxury brands just to show off. However, this may be a matter personal choice even if it is considered a vulgar show of money.As the craze for expensive branded product increased over the years, people who could not afford too have begun to aspire for brands. This is something that has been identified by many luxury brand makers. Luxury car makers the world over have diversified into the budget segment to boost their sales. Unlike the 1960s and 70s, when luxury brands were the privy of the super rich, today’s luxury product makers have a wide range of products under the same brand name. This makes it easy for even someone from the upper middle class to buy into a luxury brand. This would have probably been an unfinished dream for his father. Thus today’s generations have it a lot easier than their predecessors thanks to recession-driven economies. As luxury brands are more easily available, their market penetration has increased significantly. Thus brands have come a long way ……Salloli Kumar has been a regular on the page 3 circuit for nearly a decade.last_img read more
