Japanese business has changed tremendously in the past decade.
Once sacred institutions such as lifetime employment and
seniority - based promotion in the workplace have increasingly been
replaced by “ temp ” contracts and performance - based pay. During
Japan ’ s miracle growth years in the two decades following the
end of World War II, the nation ’ s schools churned out a veritable
“ soldier ” class of white - collared sarariman (salaried men) and OLs
(offi ce ladies) dedicated to building their country into an economic
superpower. And they succeeded.
fast pace. As part of the structural adjustment programmes of the late 1980s and early
1990s Bangladesh undertook a number of initiatives towards trade liberalisation and trade
promotion to stimulate exports and encourage investment in export-oriented activities.
The major objective of these reforms was removal of anti-export bias, introduction of
incentives for exports and facilitation of participation in global labour market.
One of the most important roles for social funds is to expand their ac-
tivities facilitating community participation and the interaction among
the state, the private sector, and grassroots communities, which in turn
enhances the sustainability of investments. Sustainability of investments
is an important factor, especially in poor communities. Social funds ac-
tivities can include training and advice on the development of programs
for poorer communities.
The model shows that developing countries will consume and produce a much greater share of the
world’s fish in the future, and trade in fish commodities will also increase. As aquaculture expands, especially
in developing countries, environmental concerns such as effluent pollution, escaped farmed fish,
land conversion, and pressure on stocks from fishmeal demand will only increase with time unless technologies
and policies promote sustainable intensification.
PLANT CELLS ARE SEPARATED from their environment by a plasma membrane that is only two lipid molecules thick. This thin layer separates a relatively constant internal environment from highly variable external surroundings. In addition to forming a hydrophobic barrier to diffusion, the membrane must facilitate and continuously regulate the inward and outward traffic of selected molecules and ions as the cell takes up nutrients, exports wastes, and regulates its turgor pressure.
Other areas that pose a challenge for developing countries include the potential impact of
the operations of insurance companies on the activities of policyholders and the economy
as a whole, the impact of emerging trends in the global insurance market, the need to
overcome supply-side constraints, the need to raise public awareness about the benefits of
insurance coverage, the need to build human capacity and how to take advantage of
changes arising from liberalization and globalization within the insurance sector to
develop export opportunities.
OprM, the outer membrane component of the MexAB-OprM multidrug efflux pump ofPseudomonas aeruginosa,
hasbeenassumed to facilitate the export of antibiotics across
the outer membrane of this organism. Here we purified to
homogeneity the OprM protein, reconstituted it into lipo-somemembranes, and tested its channel activitybyusing the
liposome swellingassay. Itwas demonstrated thatOprMis a
channel-forming protein and exhibits the channel property
that amino acids diffuse more efficiently than saccharides....
