A contabilidade criativa do Governo de Minas

Resultado de imagem para NOTA DE 100

A conferência do cumprimento do percentual mínimo de gastos com manutenção e desenvolvimento do ensino e da saúde compõem dois dos pontos mais importantes a serem verificados nas contas de governo. E nessa análise, o Tribunal de Contas do Estado (TCE-MG) verifica se, em um ano de administração, o Estado destinou o mínimo de 25% da receita resultante de impostos e transferências constitucionais para a educação, e o mínimo de 12% para a saúde, conforme determina a Constituição Federal. O Governo de Minas não destinou.

Por aí já era de se imaginar que o Estado, a qualquer momento, poderia decretar calamidade financeira, como de fato ocorreu. O Ministério Público emitiu, em junho deste ano, relatório pela reprovação das contas do governo, não somente pelos índices de educação e saúde, que ficaram em 22,9% e 9,16%, respectivamente, mas também por irregularidades relacionadas à contabilização de depósitos judiciais como Receita Corrente Líquida (RCL), que impacta índices como o do endividamento. As contas, porém, para minha surpresa, foram aprovadas por 4 votos a 2, no Plenário do TCE.

Embora o Governo tenha informado que, no exercício do ano de 2015, foi destinada à manutenção e desenvolvimento do ensino e da saúde os valores mínimos estipulados, o Ministério Público de Contas apurou que o governo computou os restos a pagar não processados no montante do que foi declarado. No ano passado não houve, nem mesmo matematicamente, disponibilidade suficiente de caixa no Estado de Minas Gerais para tal fim. As obrigações corresponderam a mais de R$5 bilhões, enquanto as disponibilidades apuradas foram de pouco mais de R$2 bilhões.

Em audiência ocorrida no último dia 23 de novembro, na Assembleia Legislativa de Minas Gerais, o procurador-geral do Ministério Público de Contas do Estado (MPC-MG), Daniel de Carvalho Guimarães, falou à Comissão de Saúde da Assembleia Legislativa de Minas Gerais sobre as dívidas do Governo de Minas e afirmou que, de acordo com os dados apurados, além de não cumprir os investimentos mínimos para a saúde e a educação, bandeira sempre utilizada pelo PT para criticar as gestões anteriores no Estado, ainda utilizou depósitos judiciais para maquiar a receita de Minas Gerais.

Não é novidade que o Brasil passa por um momento delicado, de grave crise financeira, após desastrosos anos de má gestão na presidência da república, e o nosso governador deixou a situação chegar ao ponto de precisar afirmar que sem aprovação do decreto de emergência não conseguirá pagar salários e dívidas, muitas delas contraídas por ele mesmo. Um descaso com a população que o elegeu.

Caso seja aprovado o decreto, deverão ser suspensos o prazo para pagamento de despesas de pessoal e os limites do endividamento do Estado. E, mais uma vez, o povo pagará a conta do PT.

Boeing Forecasts Increased Funding Needs Utilizing Diverse Sources for 2017 Aircraft Financing

Financing industry to provide approximately $126 billion in aircraft funding in 2017, up $4 billion from 2016
Healthy leasing market, variety of financiers and investors poised to meet most demand
Financing environment has helped absorb impact of lack of export credit in the short-term — history shows this is not sustainable

SEATTLE, Dec. 9, 2016 – Boeing [NYSE: BA] says strength in the capital markets and innovative funding developments will provide airlines and lessors efficient aircraft financing solutions in 2017.

The ninth annual Boeing Current Aircraft Finance Market Outlook forecasts the sources of financing for new commercial airplane deliveries in the coming year and the industry’s overall delivery financing requirements for the next five years.

“We’re seeing increasingly diverse financier and investor activity in the aircraft financing industry, providing more options to meet most growth in funding needs,” said Tim Myers, president of Boeing Capital Corporation. “Access to commercial bank debt and continued participation from the capital markets in 2017 will allow airlines and lessors to capitalize on the strength of the aviation industry and robust global passenger traffic trends.”

Boeing forecasts continued strong demand for new commercial airplanes in 2017, resulting in about $126 billion in deliveries across the industry with potential to grow to $185 billion by 2021.

“Capitalizing on the growth ahead requires regulations and policies that facilitate the efficiency and stability of the aircraft financing industry. Banking regulations that sensibly value aircraft assets and continued efforts to move toward global standardization of transactions through the Cape Town Convention will help ensure long-term availability of aircraft financing,” Myers said. “Further, while the healthy financing environment has helped to absorb the impact of the lack of export credit in the short-term, history shows this is not sustainable.”

Highlights of the 2017 aircraft finance market outlook include:

  • Notable new funding sources are emerging from the Korean institutional market, regional banks throughout Asia Pacific and a rise in non-U.S. investor participation in enhanced equipment trust certificates (EETCs)
  • High volume in the leasing industry will allow new lessors to grow their fleets and established lessors to purchase new aircraft
  • Commercial bank volume will exceed capital market funding for both Boeing deliveries and the industry overall; this trend is primarily driven by the rising share of deliveries to China, where bank debt is the most prevalent source of financing

United Boeing 777-300ER to fly San Francisco-Hong Kong from March

United Airlines will begin flights of its new Boeing 777-300ER – with the Polaris business class seats – between San Francisco and Hong Kong from March 25, 2017, replacing an ageing Boeing 747 on the route.

It’s the first international route for the factory-fresh birds, and will follow almost three months of domestic US runs between Newark and San Francisco from February 16 to May 4.

United has 14 Boeing 777-300ERs on order and expects them all to be flying before the end of 2017 as the Star Alliance member moves to simultaneously roll out its Polaris product and wind back its Boeing 747 jumbo jet fleet.

Fully-flat beds, large video screens, direct aisle access from every seat, upmarket meals and bedding from Saks Fifth Avenue are all part of the Polaris package, with 60 business class seats in the Boeing 777-300ER (along with 102 seats in Economy Plus and 204 in economy).

San Francisco and Hong Kong are both in line to see new Polaris business class lounges in 2017, with San Fran sporting a flagship  split-level design which will take over the space currently used by the Singapore Airlines and EVA Air lounges.

Those lounges will be restricted to business class travellers (and first class, at least until United rips out all first class seats from its aircraft), with all Mileage Plus card-holders and Star Alliance Gold equivalents directed to the less salubrious United Club lounges.

Tigerair Australia appoints new chief pilot and director of flight operations

AIRBUS A320s TIGERAIR MEL APR16 RF 5K5A6147

Tigerair Australia has appointed a former Qantas chief pilot as its new chief pilot and director of flight operations.

Peter Wilson will join the Virgin Australia-owned low-cost carrier in the role starting January 16 2017, Tigerair chief executive Rob Sharp said in a note to staff on Thursday.

He replaces Captain Harry Holling, who will remain as chief pilot and director of flight operations until January to ensure a smooth transition before he starts in a yet-to-be-announced new role at Tigerair.

Sharp said in the note to staff Wilson was chief pilot for Qantas’s international and domestic operations from 2008 to 2012. Further, Wilson was chief operating officer and accountable manager for the Qantas air operator’s certificate (AOC) in 2012-2014.

“Peter is a well-known and respected senior executive within the industry and brings a proved track record having extensive experience in both Boeing and Airbus aircraft, large scale transformation initiatives and operational excellence,” Sharp said.

“It is a great coup for Tigerair to have a person of Peter’s calibre and experience join our executive team to help support the next phase in our development.

“Peter brings a depth of business experience and will also play a key role within the senior executive team in regard to the broader business including strategy development, strategic priorities and business planning.”

The appointment of a new chief pilot and director of flight operations comes as Tigerair works towards the transition of its fleet from the Airbus A320 to Boeing 737-800 over the next three years and the start of international flying under its own AOC.

Tigerair began international operations in March, with flights to Bali from Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth using three Boeing 737-800s which remain on Virgin Australia International’s AOC and are flown by Virgin pilots and Tigerair cabin crew.

The LCC has applied to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) for two changes to its AOC. The first is for the addition of the 737 onto its AOC, with pilot training for the 737 already underway. The second is to secure approval to operate international flights.

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce expecting huge growth in US market

Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce is expecting huge growth in the US market as the airline saddles up for another year sponsoring the G’Day USA initiative.

The G’Day USA program for 2017 was officially launched inside Hangar 96 at Qantas’s Mascot base on Friday, with Joyce alongside Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, Trade, Tourism and Investment Minister Steve Ciobo and other invited guests.

The airline has been a long-time sponsor of G’Day USA, which was established in 2004 to promote Australia’s tourism, business, defence and cultural opportunities in the United States.

That support of G’Day USA has endured even as Qantas fell out with Tourism Australia in 2012, when Joyce withdrew funding support for the national tourism body, saying at the time it was no longer possible to work with the organisation given its then-chairman Geoff Dixon was among a group of investors who were pushing for change at the airline.

However, in June 2015 Dixon stepped down as chairman and in August 2016 Qantas signed a $20 million joint marketing deal with Tourism Australia, ending the four-year quarrel.

And Joyce flagged boosting Qantas’s joint-marketing partnership with Tourism Australia during his remarks at the official G’Day USA launch.

“In the last year, what’s been great is that Qantas has reengaged now with Tourism Australia,” Joyce told invited guests and media.

“We’ll be making some bigger investments I think at G’Day USA on how we take that to the next level.”

Joyce noted the Australia-US market grew by about 10 per cent in the past year, with Qantas tapping into the rise passenger numbers through new routes such as Sydney-San Francisco and the upgauging of Sydney-Dallas/Fort Worth to the Airbus A380 and boosting the service to daily.

“We’re the longest operating carrier on that route and today Qantas is bigger than all other airlines on the US route put together,” Joyce said of the trans-Pacific market.

“We’re expanding the market, a market that we see huge growth with.”

However, the airline’s plans for North America were dealt a blow in November when the US Department of Transportation (DOT) rejected an application for anti-trust immunity for a metal-neutral, revenue-sharing partnership with American Airlines.

Joyce said the impending arrival of the Boeing 787-9 into the fleet from October 2017 would allow the oneworld alliance member to further expand its presence in North America.

He said the 787-9 would “change the dynamic in North America by allowing us to fly longer routes than we’ve ever flown before” and allow Qantas to “grow the market even further”.

“We’re so excited about how the future looks,” Joyce said.

Potential routes for the next generation aircraft include Sydney-Chicago, Melbourne-Dallas/Fort Worth and Perth-London.

Bishop said the Australia’s relationship with the United States was the country’s most important and described G’Day USA as a great “public diplomacy initiative”.

“In a time of unprecedented change, with ever-shifting global dynamics it is more important than ever to treasure the long-standing relationships, to recognise the enduring nature of a relationship that has survived the good times and the tough times,” Bishop said.

“And there is no more important relationship for Australia than ours with the United States of America.

“The United States is our region’s security guarantor, our major defence partner, the largest source of foreign direct investment into our country and our second largest trading partner in goods and services.”

“Like any relationship it has to be nurtured, should never be taken for granted and this is where G’Day USA comes into its own.”

Figures from the G’Day USA website showed the program of events reached 100 million people and contributed more than one trillion dollars in Australia-US mutual investment in 2015. The 2017 program will feature events in New York, Los Angeles, and, for the first time, Austin, Texas.

Joyce said the G’Day USA events was extremely effective in getting the attention of consumers.

“It has contributed a huge amount to cut through and in a very noisy media market these days getting cut through is really key,” Joyce said.

The US is Australia’s fourth largest tourism market by visitor numbers behind New Zealand (1st), China (2nd) and the United Kingdom (3rd).

Sydney FC 1 – 1 Melbourne City FC – Hyundai A-League 2016/2017

Sydney FC and Melbourne City have shared the spoils following a fiery 1-1 draw in Friday night’s top of the table blockbuster at ANZ Stadium.

A spectacular first-half strike from Fernando Brandan put the visitors in front, with a 10-man Sky Blues gifted a way back into the match late on via the penalty spot.

There were plenty of chances across a heated 90 minutes, with Sydney’s Rhyan Grant having a goal struck off for offside, while City’s Nicolas Colazo hit the bar with a curling left-footed free kick.

Graham Arnold made two changes to the side that beat Newcastle last weekend with marquees Bobo and Filip Holosko restored to the starting side.

There were four changes for City, with John van’t Schip handing a Hyundai A-League debut to 19-year-old defender Ruon Tongyik.

The result means the Sky Blues maintain their unbeaten start to the campaign and six point gap at the top of the table from the recently crowned Westfield FFA Cup champions.

GOALS

0-1 Melbourne City: Fernando Brandan, 31’

Brandan received the ball from Argentine compatriot Nicolas Colazo and made a beeline for goal, unleashing a cracking shot from outside the box that gave Sydney FC keeper Danny Vukovic no chance.

1-1 Sydney FC: Bobo (pen), 81’

The Brazilian marquee was awarded a penalty when his jersey was tugged by Michael Jakobsen as he tried to get on the end of a threaded pass from Milos Ninkovic. Despite Dean Bouzanis guessing the right way Bobo found the back of the net with his spot kick.

RED CARD

Josh Brillante was given his marching orders midway through the second half after picking up a second yellow card for a late challenge on Neil Kilkenny.

OPTA DATA

  • Sydney FC continue their undefeated start to the season, which extends to ten matches.
  • Melbourne City stretched their unbeaten run against the Sky Blues to five matches (W2, D3).

KEY MOMENT

The Sky Blues thought they’d opened the scoring after 20 minutes when Grant found himself in space inside the box and pulled the trigger. The right back’s effort rippled the back of the net but the shot hit teammate Bobo on the goal line, with the goal disallowed for offside.

Tigerair Australia returns to Canberra

Tigerair Australia ended a five-year absence from the nation’s capital on Thursday when flight TT667 touched down at Canberra Airport.

The inaugural service, operated by Airbus A320 VH-VNR, was greeted with an Airservices Aviation Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) monitor cross on the way to the terminal after landing a little after 1900.

The aircraft was on the ground for about an hour before taking off as the reciprocal TT668 back to Melbourne just after 2000.

Cloudy skies and falling rain failed to dampen the mood at Canberra Airport for the resumption of Tigerair flights to the capital, with celebrations and free giveaways in the terminal for passengers on board the inaugural service thanks to the National Zoo and Aquarium and Visit Canberra.

“Tigerair Australia is pleased to have launched the only low-cost services between Melbourne and Canberra, providing over 2,500 additional visitor seats every week through Melbourne and Canberra Airports,” Tigerair Australia commercial director Adam Rowe said in a statement.

“Tigerair Australia has really changed its stripes. With enhanced on-time performance and the lowest cancellation rate of all Australian airlines since the beginning of 2015, Tigerair Australia is perfectly placed to stimulate air travel for the Canberra market and we are confident this route will prove particularly popular among our core group of leisure and small business customers.”

Rowe said the airline was pleased with the early demand for its Canberra flights.

Tigerair is offering a split schedule featuring mid-morning or evening flights depending on the day of the week.

Under previous owners Singapore-based Tiger Airways Holdings, the airline then known as Tiger Airways Australia started Melbourne-Canberra flights in 2008, but the route was dropped after the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) grounded the airline for six weeks in 2011.

The airline has since been sold to Virgin Australia and been rebranded as Tigerair Australia.
