Hong Kong to have its first Superyacht Management Services Center




Hong Kong, China, March 23, 2019 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Hong Kong Cruise and Yacht Industry Association (HKCYIA) has reached a partnership agreement with the China Merchants Industry Holdings Co. Ltd for the establishment of the Hong Kong’s first Superyacht Management Services Center in Tsing Yi. Located at the Yiu Lian and Euroasia Dockyards, the centre will provide world-class supporting services for superyachts of over 45 meters, including yacht refit, repair and maintenance services.

Speaking at the signing ceremony witnessed by lawyers of Stephenson Harwood, Kara Yeung, HKCYIA Executive Director said “the establishment of a yacht management services center specifically designed for superyachts has marked a major milestone in the development of the yacht industry in Hong Kong. As more yachts are becoming bigger in recent years, the demand for quality superyacht management services is on the rise. However, existing facilities in Hong Kong are lagging behind leaving some very big space for development in this field.”

“Currently the majority of the maritime business in Hong Kong is taken up by commercial and cargo ships, with the repair and maintenance systems being mainly designed for these kind of ships. However, yacht management and maintenance is another service segment which the current system cannot cater to meet their specific needs,” She said.

Yeung remarked that the move is in line with China’s plan to develop the maritime economy. According to the Outline of the 13th Five-Year Plan for the National Economic and Social Development of China, the maritime economy grew by 7.5 per cent annually on average in the past five years reaching 7.8 trillion yuan in 2017. Beijing expects the maritime industry to be worth 10 trillion yuan by 2020 and account for around 15 percent of her GDP by 2035, showing the bright future of the maritime business.

As Hong Kong is expected to be a “super connector” in the implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative and the strategy to build a 21st century maritime Silk Road, the enhancing of multilateral maritime co-operations and fostering of world-class marine industrial clusters in the Greater Bay Area will be of special significance for Hong Kong.

Yeung said the HKCYIA Superyacht Management Services Center is set up in response to this national strategy as it will provide a transit point for superyachts to obtain supplies and fuel when they travel to destinations in Asia. Not only will more superyachts come to Hong Kong to help promote tourism, but also more foreign investors are expected to come and develop the related businesses.

According to Yeung, the HKCYIA Superyacht Management Services Center will collaborate with international yacht brands and top yacht management companies in providing world-class supporting services, including repair and maintenance, audit and survey, bunkering services, crew administration, logistics support, etc. Exclusive onshore tours with tailor-made itinerary can also be provided for ship owners and their crew.

HKCYIA will also join hands with the Maritime Services Training Institute (MSTI) and RINA Services S.p.A. to develop a superyacht management course, providing hands-on training to young people who have an interest in pursuing their careers in the yacht industry.

Yeung said this programme will be the first of its kind and the collaboration with RINA will provide training that meets international standards. “Nurturing the next generation is important for the long-term development of the high-end maritime economy. The Superyacht Management Services Center will provide the perfect environment for youngsters to learn the necessary skills from industry practitioners, as well as getting the opportunities to develop their careers.

Since last year, HKCYIA has been working closely with the relevant associations and organizations, with the plan of fostering the development of the yacht industry in China. A Memorandum of understanding was signed between the association and Asia Pacific Superyacht Association (APSA); Taiwan Yachts Industry Association (TYIA); Shenzhen Boating Industry Association (BIA); Zhuhai Ocean Association; Yacht Industry Development Association of Fujian; Hainan Cruise and Yacht Association and Sanya Yachting Association (SYA) to provide the foundations for future co-operations.

HKCYIA will also participate in the Singapore Yacht Show 2019 in April and the Versilia Yachting Rendez-vous in Viareggio in May in meetings with industry experts to seek further co-operations. Yeung has been invited as a guest speaker of the Asia Pacific Superyacht Conference 2019 to share her insights on the development of yacht industry in Hong Kong.

Ruckus Networks Achieves FIPS Certification for Wireless Access Points




Hong Kong, China, March 18, 2019 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Compliance with security requirements offers government customers innovative wireless solutions to modernize networks

Ruckus Networks, an ARRIS company, has announced it received Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 140-2 (FIPS PUB 140-2) certification for its wireless access points (APs). Compliance with the U.S. government security standard broadens the connectivity solutions available for Ruckus’ government customers.

“The U.S. Federal Government wants more options for wireless networks at scale, but because of strict government requirements for technology, their options to date have been limited,” said Jimmie Adkins, Vice President of Federal, Ruckus Networks, an ARRIS company. “Ruckus has joined a very select group of vendors that have received this important certification. Our government customers now have more options to modernize their networks to meet ever-increasing wireless connectivity demands.”

Budget and staffing realities – as well as evolving security threats – are making it more challenging for government departments to succeed in their missions. Governmental IT infrastructure must be continuously modernized to manage and function at scale with existing resources. Today’s government IT networks are at a crossroads. For too long, these networks have been locked into old technologies without the budget to innovate.

“With a twenty-year history of government IT network modernization, Ruckus knows how to help update their access infrastructure in a scalable and secure manner,” continued Adkins. “By ensuring Ruckus solutions are compliant with government certifications, Ruckus makes it easier and more cost efficient for these IT employees to fulfill the mission of their departments.”

Anveglosa、FromClothingOf、KEVIN HO及PI‘A展现自然流露的优雅2019秋冬时尚

香港 2019年03月18日 /ChinaNewswire.com/ 来自香港的非牟利时装业界推广机构创意触动基金Design Renaissance Foundation (下称DRF) 主办、香港特别行政区政府工业贸易署BUD专项基金赞助,“FASHION NOW”首次亮相深圳时装周。深圳时装周于3月14日至21日在深圳举行,“FASHION NOW”场地设在华侨城观乐海岸。DRF时装秀联合四大个性时尚品牌携手演绎香港潮流时尚,向业界展示香港时装别树一格的创造力。来自香港的四个设计师品牌, 将在FASHION NOW的领衔率队下, 携最新系列出征本届深圳时装周的秀场。

今年于Fashion Now时装汇演发表2019秋冬新作的品牌包括陈秀蓉Annette Chan的时装品牌ANVEGLOSA、黄雪莹Shirley Wong的时装品牌FromClothingOf、及由何昀霖Kevin Ho创立个人品牌KEVIN HO 及梅霈馨 Priscilla I’Anson设立的香港女装品牌 PI‘A。

ANVEGLOSA
陈秀蓉 Annette Chan创立ANVEGLOSA以皮革服装的女性时尚品牌,Annette相信皮革服装不仅有实用的功能,更是可呈现个性特征的现代时装。当摩登社会过分强调速度和效率,人们常常忽略事物的本质和细节。最新一季的设计中,Anveglosa将通过对美好旧时光的时髦再现,唤醒人们对时尚的珍惜与热爱。设计师把大量20年代和30年代的标识性流行元素,应用于极简廓形的夹克、强调曲线的束腰外套等单品,皮革、丝缎及各种混合织物的排序组合,亦将在视觉上打造丰富层次感。

FromClothingOf 
黄雪莹Shirley Wong于2015年成立个人品牌FromClothingOf,希望打破大众对女性服装和美感的固有形象。品牌美学倾向简约和单色,但每件都讲究结构和剪裁,营造层次并强调细节的理,从而打造出风格鲜明,简约不简单,硬朗却又女性化的形象。 2019 秋冬系列灵感来源,是以18世纪美国南北战争南方社会作背景的经典美国小说《飘》。书中所描绘美国南方贵族战前和战后的际遇对照,以及对女主角郝思嘉Scarlett的人物刻画对比,让设计师深受触动和启发,创作出一系列以郝思嘉为缪斯的“新女性”服装。

KEVIN HO
何昀霖 Kevin Ho 擅长立体剪裁和工艺,在2015年推出个人女装品牌KEVIN HO。一个追求精致、独特的时尚品牌,擅长用非传统的工艺呈现结构和肌理,兼顾“力量”和“优雅”的设计风格令品牌气质独特。2019 秋冬系列的灵感来自抽象派画风,设计师将重点专注于颜色和图案的混合,以强烈的视觉冲击碰撞立体的结构裁剪,展现极具张力的时装个性。

PI'A
梅霈馨 Priscilla I’Anson活跃于时尚、广告及电视等范畴,创立以女装为主的时装个人品牌PI‘A。PI’A灵感来源于一个气质优雅、理性睿智以及充满自信的现代女性形象。以具有创新元素的经典美学,赋予着装者表达个人风格的空间。品牌的灵感缪斯是气质优雅、理性睿智的女性,以其风格品味及生活方式为蓝本,力求创造出多元的穿搭方式鼓励女性表达自我。

四大个性时尚品牌作为联合发布品牌亮相深圳时装周的同时,作为大湾区首个香港深圳时尚合作项目,DRF还将携手20个香港本土新锐设计品牌参展。DRF此举一方面让香港与中国时装界建立更紧密交流合作,更能推动香港中小企业体验和探索中国内地市场,规划公司在中国内地的发展潜能及空间,另一方面也提供了消费者向企业做出即时反馈的机会,令中小企业可以参照意见而修改产品并提高其产品在中国大陆市场的接受度和关注度。

DRF深信香港的时尚文化创意在内地市场汲取养分的同时,可以通过商业,时装,生活文化,教育等多方的协作,培育视野更为多元化、设计理念更为新颖独特的新锐设计师,在文化融合的同时形成和谐统一的多元时尚之风。

澳大利亚悉尼 2019年03月14日 /ChinaNewswire.com/ 澳大利亚阿德莱德——佰莉蔻,一家南澳本土公司研发了一系列美丽、清爽、安全、自然且无毒的香水。这家公司是世界上售价推出无敏香水的公司。有充分的科学研究证据警告孕妇和育龄妇女,不要使用含有可疑化学物质和隐藏化学物质的合成香水,因为这些化学物质可能会导致自闭症、激素紊乱、皮肤过敏和癌症等严重后果。

为什么使用天然香水?

https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/eqPRyHuVJV9qEgobMqWCIQ

“越来越多的科学证据表明,许多用于合成香水的未申报化学品可能具有潜在的致癌和致敏风险。佰莉蔻有限公司研发总监Manoj Jain说:“为了保护消费者(尤其是孕妇)和环境健康,香水市场需更多的科学研究和更严格的标签管理措施。大众市场的大多数香水,无论是价格高低,都是使用合成化学品替代真正的花花草草制成的。”

Hong Kong creativity shines through as 13 teams shortlisted for JOS Innovation Awards 2018-19




Hong Kong, China, March 11, 2019 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Closed door learning and sharing session with JOS, Manulife, Hong Kong Maxim’s Group and Sino Group

JOS, a technology solutions provider for Asia’s changing environment, and its partners, Manulife, Hong Kong Maxim's Group[1] and Sino Group have announced the shortlisted teams in the annual JOS Innovation Awards. At a kick-off ceremony held today, the thirteen teams, numbering over forty students, participated in a learning and sharing session about customer experience challenges found in the technology, insurance, food beverage services and property sectors.

All those shortlisted can now look forward to the battle round on 12 April 2019 where four teams will walk away with HK$30,000 each and win a place on the JOS Innovation Awards 2018-19 mentorship programme. Industry pundits from JOS, Manulife, Hong Kong Maxim’s Group and Sino Group will provide valuable insights into learning and what it takes to succeed in business together with potentially offering internships.

“This year, the JOS Innovation Awards yet again attracted high calibre entries from students who approached the customer experience theme with great enthusiasm and creativity. There were some amazing ideas put forward and it was very hard to determine the shortlisted entries,” said Eric Or, Managing Director, Greater China, JOS. “Today’s sharing session allowed executives and students a common platform to voice their thoughts on current and future customer experience trends and how these may be addressed.”

The Awards themselves are designed to demonstrate creative thinking and problem solving skills to everyday business challenges. The JOS Innovation Awards 2018-19 attracted over fifty teams of between two and five university students in Hong Kong all examining the customer experience challenge and coming up with solutions for JOS, Manulife, Hong Kong Maxim’s Group and Sino Group.

"Especially impressive was how the entrants highlighted specific issues associated with the insurance sector and showed an understanding of the critical role our agents play in the customer experience journey,” said Francesco Lagutaine, Chief Marketing and Experience Design Officer, Manulife Asia. “Manulife is focused on helping people make decisions easier and their lives better and leveraging technology to deliver on this. We’re excited to see the ideas the students present after gaining more understanding of our industry and customers."

During the kick-off ceremony, representatives from JOS, Manulife, Maxim’s Caterers Limited, and Sino Group took part in a panel discussion on customer experience, the challenges faced, trends and spoke about the JOS Innovation Award submissions. The session also provided the teams with genuine insights and learnings from Hong Kong business leaders in a closed-door setting.

"The customer journey is evolving in an increasingly tech-savvy world where everything is available at our fingertips. This is the same for the food and beverage industry with customers opting for diversity, speed and convenience. This requires innovative ways to understand the customers’ decision-making process. We are excited to gain inspiration from all the entries as this brings us even closer to customers and further enhances the overall customer experience," said Louis Mah, Director of Information Technology, Hong Kong Maxim's Group.

“The JOS Innovation Awards entries provide us with valuable insights to keep the customer experience fresh and relevant in the new era, particular at our properties. These enable us to identify areas for improvement and to harness technology to enhance the Sino Experience,” said Andrew Young, Associate Director (Innovation), Sino Group.

“There are over twenty thousand students graduating from Hong Kong universities every year who look to gravitate towards companies they perceive to have the strongest brands. This perception is shaped, in part, by the experience they have received as customers. Thus, the customer experience theme has allowed every participant to address issues they have experienced and to find a solution,” said Eric from JOS.
