TRIPOLI, Libya - Nov. 7 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Phoenicia Group Libya LLC (www.phoenicia-group.net), the U.S.-Libyan risk management and business services firm, today announced a two year cooperation and partnership agreement with the Libya-based Environment Friend's Association (EFA), a non governmental organization concerned with safeguarding and preserving Libya's environment.

Phoenicia Group LibyaThe Environment Friend's Association, an affiliate of the Gaddafi Development Foundation, is a non governmental organization formed in 1999 for the purpose of "enhancing awareness of the need in safeguarding Libya's environment for the benefit of future generations."

The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Ryad Sunusi; President & CEO of Phoenicia Group, and Ahmed AbdulHak; Chairman of the Environment Friend's Association, at EFA'S Sebha Headquarters.

The agreement outlined an agenda of coordinated cooperation and the facilitation of the exchange of technology, information, and expertise between U.S and Libyan energy and environment-related organizations, companies, NGO's, research bodies, and academics.

"Environmental protection is an extremely important topic in Libya and one with global social, economic, and political concerns, and an issue which the Libyan authorities are taking seriously, strategic plans and regulations are being implemented to adopt a sustainable and eco-friendly approach in line with the rapid industrial and economic expansion," stated Ryad Sunusi.

The agreement between Phoenicia Group and the Environment Friend's Association also involves the joint organization of energy and environment focused forums, conferences, seminars, and workshops in Libya, as well as seats on the Libyan Energy Council, which acts on an advisory capacity to the General People's Committee of Environment.

"We will be working with U.S. companies and institutions in the fields of Oil, Gas, Power, Water, and Renewable Energy; as Libya develops and upgrades its energy infrastructure a desire for cleaner and more efficient energy utilization comes with it, and U.S. companies will have a big role to play in this field," he added.

Libya is looking towards the U.S. for advanced technology and training, following the reestablishment of U.S.-Libya ties in 2004.

"U.S. companies involved in pollution control, waste management, environmental cleanup projects, desalination, advanced computer systems and software applications, and renewable energy such as solar, nuclear, and wind energy are actively sought for partnership and dialogue," said Dr. Taha Esseid, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Finance, Phoenicia Group.

Phoenicia Group LibyaMEET U.S., or Middle East Entrepreneur Training in the U.S., is a unique training program designed to identify, develop and sustain a new corps of business leaders for the MENA region.

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State's Office of the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI), the MEET U.S Program is organized by the Beyster Institute and will be implemented in Libya by Phoenicia Group and the Libyan American Business Council, in association with the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli.

Ryad Sunusi, President & CEO of Phoenicia Group, and founder of the Libyan American Business Council, described the partnership as "a natural outflow of strengthened links between U.S. and Libyan companies, trade and business advocacy groups, educational and research institutions, and government and social organizations."

"We envision future partnerships and cooperation in building cross-cultural educational and business exchange with our U.S colleagues; and are planning a similar event in association with the Waa'tisimo Foundation to invite U.S. government, academic, and business leaders to learn more about the unique Jamahiriya model of governance and social development," he said, in a released statement from Tripoli.

It is the first time Libyan applicants are eligible to participate.

Phoenicia Group expanded rapidly since into the oil & gas, communications, financial, retail, construction, and tourism sectors, making it the leading Libyan private company and consultancy group; and sponsoring the spin-off of the Libyan-American Business Council in 2004 to promote U.S.-Libyan trade and business exchange.

Phoenicia Group Continues Successful Acquisition and Partnership Strategy in Libya and the United States

Author: Phoenicia Group Libya, LLC
Dateline: Tue, 19 Sep 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “TRIPOLI, Libya - Sept. 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Phoenicia Group Libya LLC, an integrated U.S.-Libyan risk management consultancy, marketing, and event management firm, today announced several strategic acquisitions and negotiated partnerships in key growth sectors in Libya and the United States.”



A R T I C L E:

TRIPOLI, Libya - Sept. 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Phoenicia Group Libya LLC (www.phoenicia-group.net), an integrated US-Libyan risk management consultancy, marketing, and event management firm, today announced several strategic acquisitions and negotiated partnerships in key growth sectors in Libya and the United States.

Acquisitions in Libya include Burki & Associates, a legal advisory firm; Al-Najma Syndicate, private book, newspaper, and magazine publisher; Dream Tours, travel agency and tour operator; Tamuh Co, human resource and outsourcing company; Tannif, land developer and construction group; and include stakes in: The Bank of Commerce & Development, Libya's most profitable private bank; and Al-Reda Insurance Company.

"We are encouraged by recent steps taken by Libya towards a liberal and transparent business environment in common with international practice; a prerequisite for international investors is a corporate environment with a clear and established legal framework," said Rebecca Thornton, CEO of the Corporate Communications Unit.

"We are glad to say the Libyan authorities are doing an excellent job in line with World Bank guidelines on restructuring to a market economy and creating incentives for Foreign Direct Investment."

She continued "The time has never been better or more auspicious for doing business in Libya; lucrative and tantalizing investment opportunities exist in oil & gas, tourism, telecommunications, agriculture, education, and, together with our partners and associates, we intend to research and pinpoint key investment opportunities for U.S. clients."

The recent expansion venture will solidify Phoenicia Group's position, along with its 12 wholly owned subsidiaries, affiliates, and joint ventures, as market leaders and innovators and set the stage for future equities trading with the establishment of the Libyan Stock Market.

LY Consult, a California company established in 1999 and set up to assist U.S. companies in doing business in Libya merged with Phoenicia Group in June, after an agreed majority buyout in cash and stock.

Phoenicia Group also expects to establish offices in several key U.S. cities, including San Francisco, Houston, Washington D.C., and New York, and international offices in London, Paris, and Berlin, in addition to its Libya operational base.

"U.S. firms need a clear and effective instrument for facilitating investment and formulating entry strategies in a complex yet lucrative market like Libya, Phoenicia Group, as an established and experienced player, presents itself as just that - a viable instrument to advise U.S. companies on accessing the Libyan market," said J. Bergman, a financial analyst at PriceWaterHouseCoopers.

The consolidation and merger strategy will integrate key services and reduce costs; making Phoenicia Group the dominant private sector player in Libya and result in a more diversified portfolio while creating enhanced shareholder satisfaction.

In a prepared statement by Phoenicia Group interim President & CEO, Ryad Sunusi: "Phoenicia Group is well on track and topping analyst and shareholder expectations month after month. Our strategy is simple. We listen to our clients' needs and deliver our clients the efficiency and benefits that come from combining an integrated approach in working with investors and the Libyan government, with regard to cultural background."

"We expect to continue leading the way in identifying investment prospects and improving our clientele's competitive position in Libya."

    Experience - NBD has amassed the largest privately held criminal database of its kind and backs up their data with support.

    Commitment - NBD saw the opportunity to meet the needs of our clients and quickly put the time, effort and talents in place to make it happen

GIS Connectivity with VoiceGate’s Emergency e-Response, Canadian First

Author: VoiceGate Corporation
Dateline: Tue, 20 Jun 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “TORONTO, ON, Canada - June 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- VoiceGate Corporation, a leader in Mass Message and Business Continuity Planning Notification Systems, is pleased to announce its partnership with ESRI Canada, a leading provider of geographic information systems (GIS) solutions. The partnership was announced at the World Conference on Disaster Management event earlier today.”



A R T I C L E:

TORONTO, ON, Canada - June 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- VoiceGate Corporation, a leader in Mass Message and Business Continuity Planning Notification Systems, is pleased to announce its partnership with ESRI Canada, a leading provider of geographic information systems (GIS) solutions. The partnership was announced at the World Conference on Disaster Management event earlier today.

VoiceGate's Emergency e-Response solution is a multi-modal, mass-message notification system designed with open industry standards, capable of delivering messages to thousands of people simultaneously, on multiple devices: phone, answering machine, voice mail, fax, SMS, pager or any Internet ready device. ESRI's GIS tools are used to help manage information (i.e. data and maps) for emergency planning and response. Combined, VoiceGate's Emergency e-Response and ESRI Canada's GIS will provide municipalities, power and water utilities, poultry boards, medical, military, and police forces with a spatially managed, mass message notification system for emergency management.

"The marriage of these technologies creates a one plus one equals three," says Paul Perryman - President and COO of VoiceGate Corporation - "It's one thing to have a dialing or message notification machine that calls a known group of First Responders in the event the power goes out at, let's say, facility "A"; it's another thing to notify a dynamic group of contacts in the event a municipality has a train derailment and toxic gas leakage at any point that the railway bisects a region."

The real power in this union is providing ESRI users with the ability to identify emergency locations on a map and notify the appropriate stakeholders. "A good example of this is a municipality with a flood plane within its boundaries. Municipal ESRI users can now identify houses on the plane that are going to be flooded and push the data seamlessly to the Emergency e-response," said Perryman. "It calls the targeted houses and elicits responses. For the houses for which we receive no response, we stream a report, in real time, back to the ESRI solution. Once this happens, the ESRI map changes the colour of the dwellings with which we failed to make contact, identifying the police or first responders which houses need to be visited to complete the evacuation."

"The VoiceGate and ESRI Canada solution will enable Business Continuity Officers and Emergency Response Managers to communicate quickly and accurately in the event of an emergency," said Alex Miller, President, ESRI Canada. "This will enable the emergency personnel to spend their valuable time managing the crisis, rather than engaging in time consuming and ineffective manual management functions."

Every Graduating Senior from YES to Receive a Free Laptop Computer

HOUSTON, TX - May 31 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The seniors at YES College Preparatory Schools recently found out that they will be receiving a very valuable graduation present from an unexpected source. All 50 graduating YES seniors are receiving a free wireless enabled laptop computer, courtesy of Instant Laptop Rental. A wholly owned business of ScreenTek, Instant Laptop Rental, has donated computer equipment and services to ensure that each YES senior will have the resources necessary to be successful in the collegiate environment.

Most educators agree that a laptop has become a necessary resource for the college student, however, the majority of YES students come from families whose income makes owning a laptop more of a luxury than a necessity. Following the announcement, YES's valedictorian, Fidel Rubio, expressed his excitement over the news, "I was thrilled when I heard that we were all getting laptops. My family has been saving for a computer for the past two years - now I can use that money for other college expenses."

YES founder, Chris Barbic echoed Fidel's excitement, "At YES, we work hard to ensure that our students have the skills and experiences necessary to succeed in college. We are thrilled to be able to take this a step further and partner with an organization that will provide them with yet another tool to make their transition to college that much smoother."

Instant Laptop Rental's commitment goes beyond just providing the computer. All notebooks will be supported and maintained by Instant Laptop Rental through their Platinum Maintenance Plan. Additionally, ScreenTek will provide technical support for YES Prep's IT department in the area of computer procurement and network management issues.

"We are extremely impressed with the mission of YES College Preparatory Schools and feel that providing these well-deserving students with a technology advantage is important to our company and our community," said Fred Pounds, CEO, ScreenTek. "We look forward to a long standing partnership that will continue to contribute to the success of YES's program and the specific success of its graduating seniors."

Instant Laptop Rental support the YES mission by hiring two student interns this summer and providing a $1000 scholarship for a student who best demonstrates an entrepreneurial spirit and strong leadership skills. The interns will work in ScreenTek's Houston office this summer and will rotate through the various areas of the company to gain valuable business experience.
