|HELSINKI Cheap Neymar JR Jersey , July 24 (Xinhua) -- While real forest fires have notbeen a problem this summer in Finland, Finnish Economic DevelopmentMinister Mika Lintila has been trying hard over the weekend toextinguish a fire caused by looming EU restrictions on forestindustry.
The European Parliament Environmental Committee decided recentlythat the use of forest should remain at the level of 2000-2012. Theproposal discourages Finnish plans that envisage a much higherlevel of usage.
Currently, there are several major biomass and pulp plantprojects in Finland that still await final go-ahead by theinvestors, who are pinning their hope on the expansion of theforest sector.
Contributing 20 percent of the Finnish GDP Cheap Nelson Semedo Jersey , the forest industryis playing a key role in the economic strategy of the Finnishgovernment. The government has planned to increase the use offorest by 30 percent by 2030.
Talking on national broadcaster Yle late Sunday, Lintila said hestill did not believe the committee's view would emerge as thefinal EU stand. "But if that would happen, Finland would purchaseforest usage rights from countries that would be willing to sellthem", he said.
Lintila said the impact of the envisaged increased cutdown offorests on the Finnish GDP would amount to seven or eight billioneuros Cheap Marlon Santos Jersey , whereas the purchase of forest usage rights would be ten ortwenty million euros only.
However, the idea of using tax money to assure the availabilityof raw material has not been met with unanimous acceptance in thecountry.
Heidi Hautala, a Member of the European Parliament from theGreen Party, told Yle that the direction of the EU climate policymay not have been understood in Finland. Hautala said she does notunderstand why tax payers' money should be used to purchase theusage rights.
"Public funding should be used for real innovative investmentsinstead Cheap Marc-Andre Ter Stegen Jersey , such as replacing plastic with wood based substance",Hautala demanded.
Hautala said the investments that Finland now tries to allurewould lose their competitive edge along the change in climatepolicy.
Liisa Jaakonsaari, a Member of the European Parliament from theSocial Democratic Party, told Yle that Finns perceived the EUcommittee view as unjust on the grounds that Finland has taken goodcare of its forests. But Jaakonsaari implied that the currententhusiasm about biofuels may encounter with difficulties in thefuture.
Sirpa Pietikainen Cheap Luis Suarez Jersey , a conservative party MEP, said that the EUcommittee view was not presented "just to annoy Finland". "We havenow such a shortage of time to fight against the climate change,"Pietikainen noted.
The EU has committed itself to reducing emissions by 40 percentby 2030. Final decisions on the dimension of forests as carbonsinks are to be taken later this year. Enditem
There are three areas where a firm’s distinctive capabilities may yield a competitive advantage. These are:
If a firm is innovative it may obtain an advantage over competitors. However, this advantage only lasts for the length of time it takes for imitation to be effective. Innovation is particularly open to imitation. Even patents lapse or are vulnerable to new technology. Innovation advantages can only be maintained if the firm has other capabilities which make imitation of the technology on its own insufficient to erode the established firm’s competitive advantage.
Architecture refers to the firm’s internal organization. For example Cheap Lucas Digne Jersey , the famous bootroom ensured long periods of success for Liverpool Football Club in the 1960s to the 1980s. However, if the market changes the types of advantage can be eliminated by rivals.
If a firm has a reputation for providing good quality and service, it will help add value and generate more sales. Reputation can be sustainable over long periods, making it difficult for entrants to compete on equal terms with a reputable incumbent. Overall Cheap Lionel Messi Jersey , the managerial approach argues that the strategic decisions made by firms affect their performance. Firms only obtain an advantage over competitors if they can protect their strategies against imitation. The ease with which firms can imitate one another is affected by institutional and economic factors. For example, institutional factors which may prevent imitation include the imposition of restrictive employment contracts which prevent individuals from using any firm-specific knowledge if they were to move to a rival firm.
The ‘corporate culture’ of an organization can yield advantages over competitors. For example, an organization which gives long-term contracts to employees may be able to obtain a greater degree of commitment from its workforce, which enables it to work more effectively. Corporate culture is particularly difficult for other firms to imitate. Economic factors affecting the speed at which imitation takes place include the expected profits and the associated risks of pursuing a given strategy. Imitation is more likely to take place at a faster rate if the expected profits from imitating such a strategy are large. However Cheap Jordi Alba Jersey , if there are high risks associated with adopting such a strategy, imitation takes place at a slower rate.
Although the managerial approach provides important insights into how firms can obtain and sustain competitive advantages over rivals, these insights have been neglected in much of the industrial organization literature, especially in empirical studies. This is partly due to difficulties in measuring many of the variables used in the managerial literature to explain competitive advantages. However Cheap Javier Mascherano Jersey , a more fundamental disadvantage of the managerial approach is that it does not place enough emphasis on interactions between firms. In the managerial literature, the focus is mainly on the strategic options.
