Westphal Visits Chile to Help Foster Military Cooperation

first_imgBy Dialogo June 21, 2012 Under Secretary of the Army Dr. Joseph W. Westphal recently participated in the 12th U.S. and Chile Defense Consultative Commission (DCC) in Santiago, Chile and visited with Chilean Army units throughout the country to expand relationships and increase security cooperation in the hemisphere. Westphal participated in the bilateral talks as a member of a U.S. Department of Defense delegation that was headed by Honorable Paul Stockton, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Americas’ Security Affairs, and included Honorable Frank Mora, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Western Hemisphere Affairs. The U.S. officials conducted candid and productive discussions with their Chilean Defense Department counterparts to address energy, the environment, hemispheric security, science and technology, educational opportunities, and interoperability issues. “Our countries and our armies have a great relationship and through these interactions we continue to improve cooperation and strengthen cooperation,” Westphal said during the talks. “We face mutual challenges and our collaboration is essential to forging strong partnerships and finding the best solutions for both of our Armies.” Westphal underscored the importance of building relationships as the U.S. and Chile face the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. “The Defense Consultative Commission is critical in advancing our bilateral relations with Chile and its success is testament to a partnership founded on mutual interests and values,” Westphal said. The U.S.-Chile DCC was established under agreements reached in 1996 for both countries to participate in a series of annual meetings to foster greater understanding and cooperation between the two nations’ defense organizations. In addition to attending the U.S.-Chile DCC, Dr. Westphal visited with several Chilean Army units and underscored the longstanding partnership between the U.S. and Chile. He observed firsthand the humanitarian demining operations being conducted by the Chilean government along the Chilean and Peruvian border near the city of Arica, Chile. “This is a monumental and important undertaking for the country of Chile and I applaud their professionalism and expertise”, Westphal said. During his visit to Arica, Dr. Westphal met with Soldiers assigned to the Chilean First Armored Brigade and spoke with the unit’s leadership about mutual challenges and their ongoing transformation efforts. Chilean Soldiers assigned to the brigade provided Dr. Westphal with equipment demonstrations and shared insight about their capabilities and current mission priorities. “I think it’s very fruitful for us to be visited from authorities from the United States Army. We have a special relationship and I think that this is a way to keep that relationship sound. Sharing views allows us to learn and strengthen our relationship,” said a Chilean Army operations officer assigned to the Chilean First Armored Brigade. Westphal’s visit to Chile was designed to reinforce partnership between the United States and Chile and highlight the shared commitment to addressing challenges and advancing peace and stability in the hemisphere.last_img read more

Governor Wolf Announces Final Phase-Out of Capital Stock and Foreign Franchise Tax

first_imgGovernor Wolf Announces Final Phase-Out of Capital Stock and Foreign Franchise Tax Economy,  Jobs That Pay,  Press Release,  Results Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today announced the successful January 1 phase-out of Pennsylvania’s Capital Stock and Foreign Franchise tax, calling it “an unfair tax on business” that he was committed to eliminating.“As I noted in my budget address, Pennsylvania’s economic prosperity has long been hobbled by an outdated tax structure that fails to incentivize job growth,” Governor Wolf said. “It was well past time for Pennsylvania to finally remove the Capital Stock and Foreign Franchise tax from the books.”The Capital Stock and Foreign Franchise tax dates to 1844. Its phase-out had been proposed as far back as 15 years ago, but the elimination had been delayed by previous administrations.These taxes were imposed on corporations with capital stock, joint-stock associations, limited liability companies, business trusts, and other companies doing business within Pennsylvania. Domestic corporations were subject to the capital stock tax, while foreign corporations are subject to the foreign franchise tax on capital stock apportioned to Pennsylvania.“I am committed to fostering a business climate that encourages job creation by creating a tax structure that is fair to businesses and taxpayers,” Governor Wolf said.The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue noted that the elimination of the Capital Stock and Foreign Franchise tax means that many business types, such as S corporations, LLCs taxed as pass-through entities, and business trusts will be filing their final corporation tax returns for 2015.  These returns should be marked as final returns.  More information will be available on the department’s website at www.revenue.pa.gov.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img January 04, 2016last_img read more
