  • A MODEL UTILIZING THE ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORK IN COST ESTIMATION OF CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS IN JORDAN   Order a copy of this article
    by Dareen Al-Tawal, Ghaleb J. Sweis, Mazen Arafeh 
    Abstract: The efficacy and methodologies of artificial neural network (ANN) was performed on cost and design data of 104 building projects constructed over the past 5 years in Jordan to develop, train, and test a cost predictive ANN models. Fifty-three design parameters were utilized to develop the first ANN model at the detailed design stage, then a reduced factors of Forty-one design parameters were utilized to develop the second predictive model at the schematic design stage. Finally, Twenty-seven design parameters available at the concept design stage were utilized for the third ANN model. The models achieved an average cost estimation accuracies of 98%, 98%, and 97%, respectively, in the three stages.

  • The Algerian Natural Gas in light of the Regional Gas Markets Developments   Order a copy of this article
    by Laib Yassine Laib, Dounya Boudada, Riad Abadli 
    Abstract: The international gas markets have witnessed major developments. Shale gas revolution in the United States of America is the most important one, in addition to the escalating role of the liquefied natural gas. This stimulated an increase in natural gas prices, accompanied by an increase in demand; which led to significant changes that affected the dealers in those markets. Algeria is one of the most important dealers in gas markets. However, several challenges have been produced; due to the developments in these markets. These challenges put the natural gas industry in Algeria in front of large pressures, particularly with the domestic consumption rise of natural gas. Through this paper, we aim to highlight the most important challenges that face gas industry in Algeria and how to deal with them.
    Keywords: Regional gas markets; liquefied natural gas; Shale gas; Algerian natural gas.

  • Fiscal Implications of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in India: A Study of Noida SEZ   Order a copy of this article
    by N.K. Bishnoi, Babita  
    Abstract: This paper analyzes the fiscal implications of Noida special economic zones (NSEZ) on government budget. The analysis is based on the aggregated data collected form NSEZ and taking 2009-10 to 2015-2016 as reference period. The study reveals that government incurred a lot of expenditure and costs for successful running of the zone and option to earn revenue is foregone because payment of various taxes and duties is not applicable to SEZs. This, in turn has affected both revenue and expenditure of the government budget and it raises the questions about actual contributions of such enclaves to national fiscal health and supports the arguments of opponents regarding discontinuation of scheme. It is suggested that government should lessen these effects either by withdrawing fiscal incentives fully or partially or through exploring some constructive ways.
