Perceptions of Libyans Senior Officials on Foreign Direct Investment Issues and Challenges
Salem Abdulla

Abstract: The economic development needs of developing countries require capital accumulation, which is no longer an easy task, even for industrialised countries. Although borrowing remains an important alternative, it has proved to be an expensive method in the long run. Consequently, to attract foreign direct investment (FDI), developing countries have been liberalising their economies, which is expected to contribute to job creation and income generation. The paper aims to answer the research questions of whether or not Libyan experiment of FDI is successful, to what extent are the senior Libyan officials aware of the importance of the inward flow of FDI to boost the process of economic development? What are the strategies involved, and what are the difficulties or challenges facing the improving of the business environment?

Echekoba, F.N.

Abstract: In the aftermath of the global financial crisis that rocked the world in 2007, there has been growing efforts to review the oversight of financial markets and specifically financial institutions globally. The crisis which saw the demise of long standing institutions such as Lehman Brothers underscored the importance of the regulation of global financial markets. Central Banks worldwide have been apportioned some of the blame in the episode for falling asleep at the wheel, investigations and inquiries into the crisis exposed the fact that many Central Bankers were not in tangent with the developments in the financial markets and in some cases did not have a clear handle and understanding of the many instruments that were introduced into the markets. Consequently, many governments have made radical changes to their Central Banking operations in a bid to ensure better oversight of their economies. The main discourse over Central Banking has been the separation or alignment of the two main activities of the banks –microeconomic and macroeconomic regulation. There is no clear cut consensus from studies into these variants that one option supersedes the other. Thus it can be argued that there are other variables in specific economies that should come in to play in arriving at this decision. Whatever approach may be adopted, it is a very important role that sets the tone for economic development in any country. Like its counterparts worldwide, the Central Bank of Nigeria also contemplated making changes to its operational structure. This work reviewed the role of the Central Bank of Nigeria in prudential regulation and recommended an approach that would work for a developing country like Nigeria.

The Determinants of Regional Competitiveness in Indonesia
Ridwan, Basri Hasanuddin, Muhammad Amri, Madris

Abstract: This study aims to map the competitiveness of regions and to examine the influence of health, education, infrastructure, institutional, and information and communication technology (ICT) on competitiveness both directly and through government spending and private investment. The data used are cross section 33 provinces in Indonesia and time series 2010-2016. Standardized scores were used to calculate competitiveness scores based on four indicators: productivity, GRDP per capita, employment and household consumption expenditure per capita. The simultaneous equation model is used to analyze the effect of the driven factors on competitiveness. The study indicates that provinces with high competitiveness are dominated by provinces based on natural resources and / or provinces based on industry and services sectors. The driven factors that have a significant effect on competitiveness are the level of labor education, the availability of infrastructure and ICT. Health and institutions factors have not effectively contributed directly to improving competitiveness. The results of this study require the workforce to improve the quality of education and skills in order to contribute to improve productivity and employment. The availability of infrastructure and ICTs is important to attract investments that ultimately drive increased competitiveness.

Abstract: Indonesia is a decentralized unitary state, which means that some part of government affairs are handed over to local authorities which arise to the autonomous regional government. Based on the principle of local autonomy, land service is the obligatory of local government, but in practice the government still retains most of its authority in the area of land that shifts back and forth between government and local governments in the administration of the affairs of the land. The results of the analysis of several laws related to the affairs of local government and land administration show that there are inconsistencies in the affairs of the authority setting of the land sector. Some rules of law stated that the authority for land is on government affairs, while in some statutory rules mentioned that the local governments with its regional autonomy is given a real and has broad authority to administer the affairs of the land in its territory. However, government still holds land affairs because the Indonesian Government has no "political will" to implement a full autonomy, it also because of the influence of political national land law which still gives orders to the state as the ruling body on land owned by the Indonesian people to realize the maximum benefit of the people. Therefore, it is necessary to harmonize the rules by doing material test (judiciel review) or a holistic form of formal rules (national policy) that can bridge the relationship between the government and the local government especially in the administration of affairs in the land sector.

Effects of Locations On- and Off- Epigeal Termitaria on Vegetation Lifeforms in Katolo Sub-Location of Kisumu County, Kenya
Wyclife Agumba Oluoch, Boniface Oluoch Oindo, Paul Abuom

Abstract: Epigeal termitaria host richer vegetation assemblages ascribed partly to their elevated nutrients levels in savannah ecosystems. However, elaborate quantitative description of how abundance of various vegetation lifeforms (trees, shrubs, lianas and grass) vary with on-mound and off-mound locations has not been clearly studied. Therefore, the paper in hand endeavored to find out the influence of on-mound and off-mound locations on vegetation lifeforms abundance in Katolo Sub-Location of Kisumu County, Kenya. Termite mounds population in the study area was not known. Therefore, cross sectional descriptive research design was adopted. Using saturated sampling, a total of sixty accessible mounds of at least 0.11m in basal radius and corresponding off-mound plots were selected for the study. Number of trees, shrubs and lianas was arrived at by visual counting and recording while grass population was approximated by use of a quadrat. One way ANOVA was employed to determine significant difference in means of vegetation lifeforms abundance based on location on and off-mound. The results showed that location on-mound and off-mound significantly (p≤0.05) influenced all vegetation lifeforms with all except grass being more abundant on termite mounds. The study recommends conservation of termite mounds in order to boost abundance of vegetation lifeforms within the study area.

I Ketut Widnyana, IGN Alit Wiswasta, Anik Yuesti

Abstract: Tomato plants are susceptible to Fusarium wilt disease with a field attack rate of 10 to 20%. The research was conducted to get a simple and can be done by farmers by using Plant Growth Promothing Rizobacteria (PGPR). Research was conducted in the laboratory to determine the biochemical characteristics of rizobacteria and in the greenhouse to determine the effect on plant growth. Tests conducted on three isolates of bacteria P. alcaligenes which is the result of previous research. The results showed that the rhizobacteria tested were gram negative bacteria, did not produce enzyme oxidase, produced catalase enzyme, glucose fermentation, lactose and sucrose, did not produce gas and cyanide acid. The three rizobacterial isolates are able to spur the growth of tomato plants through soaking the seeds with PGPR suspense for 20-30 minutes. Application of P. alcaligenes isolates has been shown to increase total phenol content up to 262% and 606% salicylic acid in tomato plant tissue. Soaking tomato seeds with P. alcaligenessuspense suppressed the tomato wilt disease 44.44 - 55.56% and were able to increase the yield of 3 to 4 times more than the control plants.

Abstract: TRIPs Agreement provides the only multilateral comprehensive set of minimum standards and flexibilities relating to the enforcement of IP rights. The enforcement of IPR’s is the weakest aspect of IP systems in many developing countries including Indonesia. The TRIPs Agreement obliges member countries concerning the border measures on goods infringing intellectual property rights. Because of elevation infringement IP rights in Indonesia, so, then the Government of Indonesia issues new law and regulation to decrease infringement of IP rights in Indonesia. The protection and law enforcement of IPR aims to encourage the emergence of innovation, transfer, and dissemination of technology and obtained the mutual benefit of producers between users and knowledge of technology, by creating social and economic welfare as well as the balance between rights and obligations. Based on the data result of IP cases from Commercial Court, Jakarta obtained the considerable amount of IPR disputes filed. The article explains that the application of the law of IPR not only from one side but also of all legal aspects related to IPR.
