Sydney SunSydney Sun | The latest news & events in Sydney, Australia
Sydney Sun works strenuously to bring our readers a completely independent perspective of Sydney news. Our editors, software programmers, journalists and affiliated wire services here at Sydney Sun are all dedicated to producing the best journalism possible.
This is a world where conflicts of interest pervade business empires, and political dynasties, and where a shrinking number of media proprietors are growing their interests at the expense of diversity of media ownership. The Sydney Sun was established more than a decade ago as an independent online newspaper, or eNewspaper, named after the Sydney Sun newspaper, first published more than a hundred years ago.
Our focus primarily is to produce the latest breaking stories out of Sydney, Australia's biggest city, as it occurs. There is also a focus on the wider metropolitan area with news of what is taking place in Manly and other suburbs on the northern beaches, Bondi Beach and the eastern suburbs; North Sydney, Parramatta and the Western Suburbs; through to the Blue Mountains and out into the Central West, down to Wagga Wagga and the southern regional cities and up the North Coast with stories from cities like Port Macquarie, and Coffs Harbour, as well as the latest events from Gosford and other key centres on the Central Coast, Newcastle and the Hunter, down to Wollongong and the Illawarra.
Sydney Sun also covers the nation. Regional news too is a priority, as is our extensive world news coverage. For a Sydney weather report, local news, breaking international headlines, or what is happening in sports, the Sydney Sun is here for you.
Our business centre too is active 24 hours a day providing the latest market updates and news from key global centres like Tokyo, Sydney, London, Paris, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, Chicago and New York. Sydney Sun provides stock indices tables, individual stock search functionality, independent market news, and foreign exchange rates, as a regular feature, together with a vast range of general interest news.
Australia and India today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop and strengthen cooperation in skills training in the agriculture sector.
The MoU results from the joint commitment of the Australian and Indian Prime Ministers in October 2012 to build bilateral partnerships between skills councils in key industry areas, including telecommunications, retail, mining, media/entertainment and agriculture.
Welcoming the initiative, the Australian High Commissioner to India, Mr Patrick Suckling, said the MoU was another successful outcome of the Australia India Education Council's (AIEC) work to expand collaboration in skills development between Australia and India.
"This partnership aims to achieve quality industry-led skills training standards in the agriculture sector. With India projected to add 12 to 15 million workers to its labour force every year over the coming decades, employability and productivity gains will be inextricably linked to quality standards," said Suckling.
The MOU was signed between the Agriculture Skills Council of India and AgriFood Skills Australia and will promote cooperation in creating quality occupational, training, assessment, certification, information and stakeholder engagement standards. ...
