New Zealand visit indicated live sheep, fresh water
Saudi Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal’s rapid reversal of fortune in recent months is conclusive proof that money cannot buy you friends and most definitely not influential ones.
From Bill Gates through to such media honchos as Rupert Murdoch and Michael Bloomberg, the prince’s pals and associates have been characterised by their silence on the prince’s undeniably serious plight.
Not a peep either from former New Zealand prime minister John Key who we picture meeting the prince in Riyadh officially to push the New Zealand cause.
MP intercepted University takeover of trade and craft training with re-vamped real economy scheme.
Parliamentarian Jim Anderton’s enduring legacy was the official restoration of trade apprenticeships in the form of Modern Apprentices. These were introduced during his tour of duty as minister of economic development with the Helen Clark-led Labour government.
Biomedical Services NZ Ltd shared approach offers model also to wider public administrative IT projects

There are the revenue shifts in which their giveaway versions are flourishing especially in property advertising. Similarly the broadcasters have a solid localised radio backbone via carrying advertising for patent medicines, directed at those of mature years, their audience base.
Inventor’s son Duff Daysh became eminent financier
Dec 20, 2017 - The news that a hitherto unrecognised New Zealand dairy farmer Norman Daysh invented the mechanised milking machine and had the patents to prove it was officially revealed by the world leader in milking machines De Laval which took up these patents.
De Laval which is presumably aware of the problem that New Zealanders have in recognising achievements outside the sporting sphere platformed descendants of Norman Daysh who died at the relatively young age of 42 while demonstrating his invention at the Palmerston North Showgrounds.
Meguerditch Bouldoukian is considered in the West the leading Arabic-language authority on banking in the Middle East. He now takes our Five Questions on the pending flotation of Aramco and the economic circumstances in which it will take place……
The Saudis appear to have valued Aramco at US$2 trillion. Western commentators have claimed that it is over valued?
The issue of valuation of a company in investment banking criteria has more than six methods. We can say here though that if the two or more sides agree on a method to value ARAMCO then we can wish them good luck. From a conservative approach to the most liberal, its market capitalization is reported to extend from $1.5 trillion to $10 trillion.
