For students coming from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Kenya and Ghana, Mastercard and Flywire will offer discounted foreign exchange fees on tuition payments for the fall term, the companies have announced.

A group that promotes development in Milwaukee’s north side Harambee neighborhood would expand its turf under a proposal endorsed by city officials.

Its territory would expand to areas north and west of its existing boundary line under a proposal recommended Wednesday by the Common Council’s Community and Economic Development Committee.

Business improvement districts are financed through annual assessments on non-residential properties within their neighborhoods.

Those funds finance such things as enhanced sidewalks and

British Business Bank seeks funding boost to drive UK recovery

The outgoing chief executive of Britain’s state-owned development bank has called for the government to provide more funds to support crucial industries and regional growth as the country rebuilds after the coronavirus crisis.

His comments came as the Treasury and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, BEIS, launched a review of the role, remit and governance of the BBB, which provides money through commercial lenders and fund managers to smaller companies and start-ups.

The pandemic has seen the bank grow exponentially. At the start of the year, it supported close to £8bn of funding for almost 100,000 firms, mostly through funds designed
