"Local Brazilian mango market increasingly important"

Carlos Andre de Faria, Sun City:





The current mango market is very unstable, both in terms of price and quality.

"On the spot market, it is dangerous to do business," says Carlos André de Faria from the European sales office at Brazilian mango producer Sun City from Bleiswijk. 



"As for the programs with retail, the quality and the prices are a lot better."










From January to March, the mango market will be dominated by Kent-Mangos from Peru. In April, Brazil will be the main supplier with Keith, Palmer and Tommy Atkins, then from the second week of May to July, the West African countries of Mali, Senegal and Ivory Coast will be active in the market, also the Central American countries Costa Rica, Guatemala and Mexico with Kent mangos.



 In August, Israel and Senegal provide several types.

Why Social Media Is Now Indispensable For CEOs

Businessman Sir Richard Branson is LinkedIn's top "social" CEO.











The current stampede to embrace social media as a valuable business tool has kicked up a big cloud of dust and created new layers of confusion for chief executives and other leaders.



Most CEOs sense that social media marks an important breakthrough for business communications, but they aren’t sure how to fully utilize the technology to gain a competitive advantage. This is because leaders often have trouble distinguishing between “actionable social” information and what I like to call plain old “social noise.” There is a substantial difference between the two.





Think of actionable social as useful information that can be acted upon to improve business results. Social noise, on the other hand, involves a vast overload of data that drowns out the underlying message or meaning.





Nearly three-fourths of senior executives in the U.S. believe that C-Suite…

THE WORLD MUST SEPARATE IN ORDER TO STAY TOGETHER: A TALE OF SEPARATIST MOVEMENTS

Centripetal and Centrifugal Forces at Work in the Nation-State

Stratfor






By Zhixing Zhang






"Here begins our tale: The empire, long divided, must unite; long united, must divide. Thus it has ever been." 



This opening adage of Romance of the Three Kingdoms, China's classic novel of war and strategy, best captures the essential dynamism of Chinese geopolitics. 


At its heart is the millennia-long struggle by China's would-be rulers to unite and govern the all-but-ungovernable geographic mass of China. 



It is a story of centrifugal forces and of insurmountable divisions rooted in geography and history -- but also, and perhaps more fundamentally, of centripetal forces toward eventual unity.




This dynamism is not limited to China. The Scottish referendum and waves of secession movements -- from Spain's Catalonia to Turkey and Iraq's ethnic Kurds -- are working in different directions.
