‫التلفزيون الصيني المركزي: شي يدعو إلى تعاون عالمي في مجال الإبداع العلمي التقني في افتتاح منتدى جونغوانكون 2021

بكين، 27 أيلول/سبتمبر، 2021 / PRNewswire / — دعا الرئيس الصيني شي جينبنغ إلى تعاون دولي في الإبداع العلمي التقني، وذلك في افتتاح منتدى جونغوانكون 2021 في بكين يوم الجمعة.

وفي كلمته في حفل افتتاح المنتدى عبر رابط الفيديو، قال شي إنه يتعين على دول العالم تكثيف الانفتاح والتعاون في مجال العلوم والتكنولوجيا، واستكشاف الأساليب والوسائل لمعالجة القضايا العالمية المحورية من خلال الجهود المنسقة في الابتكار العلمي التكنولوجي.

“لقد أصبح من الضروري أكثر من أي وقت مضى بالنسبة لجميع البلدان تكثيف الانفتاح والتعاون في مجال العلوم والتكنولوجيا، واستكشاف الأساليب والوسائل لمعالجة القضايا العالمية المحورية من خلال الجهود المتضافرة في الابتكار العلمي التقني.”   وأضاف: “يجب على جميع الدول أن تقف متضامنة لمواجهة تحديات العصر المشتركة وأن تدفع بالقضية السامية للسلام والتنمية البشرية بشكل مشترك.”

“تولي الصين أهمية كبيرة للابتكار العلمي والتكنولوجي، وقد التزمت بالتعاون العالمي في هذا الصدد.   وبالنظر إلى المستقبل، سوف نعزز التبادلات العلمية والتكنولوجية الدولية بموقف أكثر انفتاحًا، ونشارك بنشاط في شبكة الابتكار العالمية، ونتعاون مع البلدان الأخرى لتعزيز البحث الأساسي.   وأضاف شي: “سنعمل على الترويج لتسويق نتائج البحوث، وتوفير زخم جديد في مجال التنمية الاقتصادية، وتعزيز حماية حقوق الملكية الفكرية، وإنشاء نظام عام للابتكار من الدرجة الأولى، وتعزيز مفهوم “العلم والتكنولوجيا من أجل الخير”، وذلك من أجل خدمة الأغراض النهائية لتحسين حوكمة العلوم والتكنولوجيا العالمية وتحسين رخاء البشرية”.

“جونغوانكون هي أول منطقة تجريبية وطنية في الصين للابتكار المستقل.   منتدى جونغوانكون هو منصة وطنية للتبادلات العلمية والتعاون الدولي.   الصين تدعم جونغوانكون لاستهلال جولة جديدة من الإصلاحات، وتسريع بناء حديقة علوم وتقنية عالمية المستوى وتقديم مساهمات جديدة في الابتكار والتعاون العلمي التكنولوجي العالمي.   آمل أن يكون للمشاركين في المنتدى تبادلات متعمقة وتجميع للأفكار لتقديم رؤى حول كيفية تعزيز الابتكار والتعاون العلمي التكنولوجي العالمي وكيفية بناء مجتمع المصير المشترك للبشرية”، كما قال شي.

ومن المقرر عقد منتدى هذا العام في الفترة من 24 إلى 28 أيلول/سبتمبر.   ويهدف المنتدى الذي يعقد تحت شعار “الذكاء والصحة وحياد الكربون” إلى إظهار عزم الصين على تعزيز التنمية من خلال العلوم والتكنولوجيا وبناء حضارة بيئية وتعزيز التعاون الدولي في مجال تغير المناخ.

StashAway MENA Introduces Thematic Portfolios

DUBAI, UAE – Media OutReach – 27 September 2021 – StashAway has launched Thematic Portfolios. StashAway’s Thematic Portfolios include three themes: Technology Enablers, The Future of Consumer Tech, and Healthcare Innovation.

DUBAI, UAE – Media OutReach – 27 September 2021 – StashAway has launched Thematic Portfolios. StashAway’s Thematic Portfolios include three themes: Technology Enablers, The Future of Consumer Tech, and Healthcare Innovation. The portfolios feature ETFs from some of the world’s top fund managers, including ARK Invest, iShares, Global X, and VanEck.

Since 2018, the amount of assets in thematic funds globally have grown at an annual rate of 37%. In 2020 alone, assets in thematic funds grew by 77%. And not only are thematic investments growing in popularity, but they’re also eclipsing traditional equity sectors: thematic portfolios have accounted for nearly 40% of all equity fund net sales since 2017.*

What makes StashAway’s Thematic Portfolios different from any other thematic offering available to both retail and institutional investors is its risk management feature: Investors select the downside they’re willing to accept in a given year, and then the StashAway platform maximises the thematic exposure as much as possible within those risk constraints. “This gives investors the access to thematic investing without the risk inherent with thematic investing,” says StashAway Co-founder and CIO, Freddy Lim. The remaining non-thematic assets in a portfolio are there to manage risk. “We call these non-thematic assets ‘balancing assets’, and their role in our Thematic Portfolios is just as important as the thematic assets.”

“One key strategy to building wealth is to diversify the investments where you can capture opportunities. We’re thrilled to deliver a product that both benefits our clients’ long-term investment strategies and is an exciting opportunity to be a part of the industries investors believe will have the greatest impact in the future,” shares Ramzi Khleif, General Manager MENA.

*https://www.ftadviser.com/investments/2021/07/30/thematic-investing-grows-by-77-per-cent-in-2020/

About the themes

 Technology Enablers includes subthemes such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, cloud computing, robotics, and semiconductors – it’s technology that consumers don’t see but that enables new technologies to transform the world.

The Future of Consumer Technology invests in technology that everyday consumers use: e-commerce, fintech, gaming, Internet, mobility, and social media.

Healthcare Innovation is about investing in the technologies that can not only improve but even change the way people stay healthy, get treatment, and recover. This portfolio gives investors exposure to biotech, genomics, and pharmaceuticals, such as smart beds and software used for genome sequencing.

About StashAway

 StashAway is a digital wealth manager that offers investment portfolios and wealth management solutions for both retail and accredited investors and operates in Singapore, Malaysia, the Middle East and North Africa, Hong Kong, and Thailand.

As of January 2021, the company surpassed $1 billion USD in assets under management. It achieved this milestone faster than it took the world’s largest digital wealth managers, Betterment and Wealthfront, to reach the same milestone. In 2020, StashAway was recognised as a Technology Pioneer by The World Economic Forum and a Top 10 LinkedIn Startup.

Historic office tower becomes namesake of legendary architect Arthur Erickson

Erickson’s designs can be found worldwide, including across the Middle East

Arthur Erickson Place

This Canadian office tower is a national historic landmark.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In what is considered a rare honour for an architect, Vancouver’s historic MacMillan Bloedel building – one of Canada’s most recognized and awarded office towers – officially rebranded to Arthur Erickson Place. Globally celebrated architect Arthur Erickson created the striking Modernist tower for forestry giant MacMillan Bloedel in the 1960s. The structure, made of reinforced bare concrete, rises above a spacious public plaza with reflecting pools that span the building’s length.

“It is rare for an architect to be honoured in this way, and I know that Arthur would be very proud to have the building carry his name, as it encapsulates all he strove to achieve architecturally,” said Erickson’s nephew, Christopher Erickson. “The building’s classic beauty and clarity of structure expresses the ruggedness of our land and majesty of our forests with a powerful cadence that tapers into infinity as it rises from its roots.”

The 27-storey building – the tallest in Vancouver when it was completed in 1968 – became a multi-award-winning national heritage landmark due to its construction technique of cast-in-place concrete, striking aesthetics of tapered walls and deeply recessed windows, and association with Erickson and MacBlo, which at the time was Canada’s largest forestry company.

“Arthur was very proud of this building – it was one of his favourites,” said Geoffrey Erickson about his uncle, who was known as the Master of Concrete. “This building is bold and daring and broke new ground in engineering, office planning and the use of concrete.”

Ownership Group

KingSett Capital, Crestpoint Real Estate Investments, and Reliance Properties acquired the award-winning building in 2019.

Erickson and his bold design were featured in Time magazine in the 1960s and the building won the esteemed 1970 Massey Medal for Architecture, among many other awards.

Now 53-years-old, the distinguished concrete building has continued to be called MacBlo even though the company ceased to exist 22 years ago. Two years ago, KingSett Capital, Crestpoint Real Estate Investments, and Reliance Properties jointly bought the building with a plan to reestablish it as the premier corporate office location in downtown Vancouver.

“It is time to give this powerful, monolithic office building its due place on Vancouver’s skyline by branding it after Arthur Erickson in honour of his excellence,” said Jon Stovell, president & CEO of Reliance Properties. “With its heritage distinction, central downtown location, and strong visual identity, Arthur Erickson Place will continue to be the address with cachet.”

Designs in the Middle East

Erickson was born in Vancouver and became a globally celebrated modernist architect and master planner. Approximately 40 of his designs can be found across the Middle East, many of them large-scale public projects including masterplans, universities, and museums.

He designed only nine office buildings in his vast global portfolio of 700 designs. Two of those office buildings are in downtown Vancouver – Evergreen Building and Arthur Erickson Place, both of which are listed on Canada’s heritage registry.

“Arthur Erickson Place is an iconic presence in the heart of Vancouver, expressed with timeless repose and finesse,” said Christopher Erickson. “Arthur always said that the mind was at the service of the heart. This is evidenced in the sublime artistry of Arthur Erickson Place.”

Erickson died in 2009 at age 84.

Huawei Launches the Mobile Payment and Micro Finance Solution, Facilitating Financial Inclusion

SHENZHEN, China, Sept. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Huawei launched a financial inclusion solution featuring mobile payment and micro finance at HUAWEI CONNECT 2021.

SHENZHEN, China, Sept. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Huawei launched a financial inclusion solution featuring mobile payment and micro finance at HUAWEI CONNECT 2021. The solution helps financial institutions provide fast and affordable services, bringing the world a step closer to financial inclusion. Huawei will continue working with ecosystem partners and using new ICTs to advance mobile payment and build a prosperous business ecosystem.

Banks use mobile payment and micro finance solutions, including cloud technology and SaaS, to build tailored business models and a thriving ecosystem on super apps. Huawei’s financial inclusion solution covers mobile wallet, mobile payment platform, super app open framework, and financial product platforms. With these, banks can quickly introduce various financial services.

At HUAWEI CONNECT 2021, Huawei addressed the future of digital transformation across industries from three perspectives: scenarios, models, and ecosystems. Huawei launched 11 new industry solutions, one of these being the mobile payment and micro finance solution. The latter uses new technologies to help financial institutions around the world advance mobile payment; connect users, merchants, channel partners, and developers; and build a prosperous ecosystem.

1. A super app connects users and merchants. Huawei provides multiple channel technologies (SuperAPP, HTML5, carrier USSD, Agent, and open API) to help banks reach their customers faster and at a lower cost. Huawei also supports smaller merchants in upgrading their digital operations through tailored apps; these also help banks outside China develop agent networks to reach customers online and offline. With Huawei solutions, financial institutions can design a complete online customer journey and deliver better customer experience.

2. A financial product platform connects users and funders. Carriers outside China have a massive number of users, so they have the driving force for business growth and the pre-requisite for monetization. However, they are lacking a platform to connect with banks. The financial product platform helps carriers recommend users to banks, which can in turn provide embedded financial products directly to users.

3. A developer platform helps build an ecosystem. There are several types of developers, including those of global leading service systems, local services, and intermediate services such as small plug-ins. Huawei provides a cloud-native SaaS solution, which supports iterative innovation and open APIs. This enables other SaaS partners and different ecosystem players to connect on the HUAWEI CLOUD platform. Banks and partners can easily explore new services and quickly aggregate diverse ecosystems to successfully launch joint projects.

Huawei’s financial inclusion solutions have already been successfully implemented in several countries.

For example, Huawei worked with KBZ Bank in Myanmar — the largest local bank — to build a new digital wallet called KBZPay based on the public cloud. KBZPay integrates various marketing tools to deliver a fully digital experience to users and help merchants attract customers. In just two and a half years, KBZPay on-boarded over 8 million registered users, making it the leading digital life payment brand in the country.

In Kenya, Huawei cooperated with Safaricom — the largest local carrier — to build a payment brand called M-Pesa. Not only does the platform support bank transfers, it also offers several services for daily life. At the same time, it helps KCB Bank, NCBA Bank, and Safaricom provide micro and small loans to individuals and merchants. On the market for 14 years, M-Pesa has significantly contributed to increasing financial inclusion in Kenya, which has shot up from 23% to 85%.

Huawei is committed to advancing financial inclusion. It has thus far served over 30 sites across more than 20 countries, covering 300 million users in regions like Southern Africa, North Africa, and Asia Pacific. Huawei aims to deliver convenient and diverse financial services to everyone. Using its advanced connectivity and platforms, Huawei helps financial institutions build digital business processes, implement digital financial inclusion services, and achieve sustainable financial development.
