PhosAgro's Apatit Plant Ships 2 Billionth Tonne of Apatite-Nepheline Ore on the Eve of Its 90th Anniversary


KIROVSK, Russia, Aug. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- At the Vostochny mine of the Kirovsk branch of Apatit (PhosAgro Group), a ceremony was held to mark the shipment of the 2 billionth tonne of apatite-nepheline ore, which has been mined for the past 90 years since the plant was established.

Attending the ceremony were Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak; Viktor Yevtukhov, Russia's Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade; Alexander Orlov, Director of the Department for Chemistry, Technology and Bioengineering at the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade; Andrey Chibis, Acting Governor of the Murmansk Region; Andrey A. Guryev, CEO of PhosAgro; Andrey G. Guryev, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors of PhosAgro; Andrey Abrashitov, Director of the Kirovsk branch of Apatit; and other company officials. The event was timed to coincide with Miner's Day and the Apatit Plant's 90th anniversary.

The honour of documenting this production achievement fell on the Vostochny mine, where Dmitry Kozak, Andrey Chibis, Andrey Guryev and Andrey Abrashitov issued a joint command to carry out a mass explosion in an open pit and to then send the commemorative tonne of ore to the apatite-nepheline facility for processing.

Two billion tonnes of ore have been produced at four mines at the mining and beneficiation complex: Kirovsky (800 million tonnes), Central (720 million tonnes), Vostochny (250 million tonnes), and Rasvumchorr (230 million tonnes).

"Two billion tonnes of ore â€�“ that's more than 19 million dump cars," said PhosAgro CEO Andrey A. Guryev. "If you were to line them up in a train, its length would stretch more than 250,000 kilometres, which is equivalent 7 times the length of the Earth's equator. Nearly 700 million tonnes of phosphate rock have been produced from ore at the mining and beneficiation complex in Khibiny. There's little left to do to achieve that milestone, which we'll reach in September. For 90 years, the Apatit Plant has been producing phosphate rock in Russia, which serves as the raw material required to produce high-performance, environmentally friendly phosphate-based fertilizers. The plant has become the flagship facility in the domestic mineral fertilizer industry and the basis of food security not only in Russia, but around the world."

Andrey G. Guryev, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors of PhosAgro, drew attendees' attention to the fact that along with the scientific and technological progress taking place at the plant, production performance for ore in general is growing. To produce the first 100 million tonnes required more than 30 years, and the half-billion mark was reached 15 years later. The next 500 million tonnes were mined in just 10 years. In December 2001, the 1.5 billionth tonne was shipped, and now the 2 billionth tonne of ore has been mined.

"There will be new billions of tonnes ahead, since Russia has no alternative to the Khibiny deposits," said Andrei G. Guryev. "The company is making major investments in developing its resource base and is outfitting mines with modern equipment. The introduction of unmanned haul trucks and excavators in open pits is not far off. A few years ago, this seemed like a fantasy, but today it's a reality."

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak believes that PhosAgro is the pearl of the entire mining industry.

"One of PhosAgro's magnificent achievements is that its corporate standards for environmental cleanliness of mineral fertilizers have become international standards. This is not just about the company's success, however; it's also about protecting people's health and creating conditions to produce organic food."

Kozak noted how the mining industry has changed over the past several decades. New technologies are being introduced, production facilities are being modernised, productivity is growing, and considerable attention is being paid to improving occupational safety and environmental protection.

The ecological purity of phosphate rock and the phosphate-based mineral fertilizers produced from it was underscored by Irina Bokova, an independent member of PhosAgro's Board of Directors. She noted that the European Union had recently placed trade limits on mineral fertilizers containing a high percentage of impurities, including cadmium. This decision elevates PhosAgro products to the premium category.

"The European Union has decided that companies that manufacture pure products â€�“ and PhosAgro is among the small number of companies that do so â€�“ would be eligible for green labelling. Green labelling is an indicator of environmental friendliness and helps when it comes to strengthening our market position. But I will go a little further. I think that this will have a positive affect not only the PhosAgro's image, but also that of Russian industry and Russia as a whole," Bokova concluded.

Speaking both on his own accord and for Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov, Viktor Yevtukhov, Russia's Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade, expressed gratitude to the plant's leadership for their effective management, for introducing modern digital production, and for the entire team's dedicated, professional work that have brought benefit both to the plant and the country.

Andrei Chibis, Acting Governor of the Murmansk Region, congratulated employees of PhosAgro and the Kirovsk branch of Apatit on the upcoming Miner's Day celebration, noting that PhosAgro, one of the largest employers and taxpayers in the Murmansk Region, is actively growing.

"I want to thank PhosAgro for their social partnership," he said. "This really allows us to change the quality of life for the better. Happy Miner's Day to everyone â€�“ may the plant continue to prosper!"

At the ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak presented state awards to three employees of the Apatit Plant (PhosAgro Group) in recognition of their professional achievements, active social engagement and many years of dedicated work. The title "Honoured Miner of the Russian Federation" was awarded to Anatoly Mikhailovich Chuykin, a rig operator at the Kirovsk branch of the Apatit Plant. "For Merit to the Fatherland, II level" medals were awarded to Olga Polozova, head of the planning and process section of the steam and gas supply unit of the Apatit Plant (Cherepovets), and Andrey Teplenichev, head of the repair and maintenance division of the Apatit Plant (Cherepovets).

NEW YORK, Aug. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. markets began the week stronger following optimism revolving around trade talks as well as a global stimulus. The Dow Jones Industrial Average opened 304.42 points or 1.18% higher on Monday morning as U.S. President Donald Trump digested Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook's warning that additional tariffs could hurt Apple's operations and give its rivals a competitive advantage.

On Tuesday, markets declined throughout the day as investors focused on the Federal Reserve's Jackson Hole symposium at the end of the week. Despite the decline, markets reco! vered on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve's meeting minutes from July 30th to July 31st were released. The minutes revealed that the Federal Reserve members believed "it was important to maintain optionality in setting policy." The rate setting Federal Open Market Committee voted 8-2 in favor of lowering short-term interest rates by 25 basis points to 2%-2.25%. Most members who supported the cut agreed with Chairman Jerome Powell stance that it was a "mid-cycle adjustment." The reasoning for cutting the rates is largely due to foreign concern among policymakers over a global economic slowdown as well as the ongoing trade tensions between the U.S. and China. However, markets retreated once again on Thursday as the Dow Jones dropped by over 250 points ahead of the Federal Reserve' symposium after starting the morning higher. Kansas City Federal Reserve President Est! her Georg e indicated on Thursday that she would not support further rate cuts. Similarly, Philadelphia's Federal Reserve President Patrick Harker supported the rate cut at first, but now wants rates to remain steady, according to MarketWatch. The Home Depot, Inc.

The Dow Jones closed 49.51 points or 0.19% higher on Friday. The S&P 500 closed 1.48 or 0.05% lower, while the Nasdaq Composite finished 28.82 points or 0.36% lower. "We already knew that last months Fed rate cut was likely to be a contentious decision, given the differing views that were already being voiced in the lead-up to the decision," wrote Michael Hewson, Chief Market Analyst at CMC Markets, in a daily research note. "Yesterday's release of the minutes only served to confirm that view, and while Fed [Chairman] Jay Powell pushed the line that the reduction was a "mid-cycle adjustment" policy makers were sharply split on the course of action to take."

EXEED, which adopts "tech, high end and dynamics" as the core brand value, invited Kevin Rice, a reputed auto designer worldwide, as its master designer. EXEED TXL is the first model of the series already put into mass production.

By carrying Baidu's autonomous driving system Apollo OS, EXEED TXL brings excellent driving experience to consumers with more configurations.

As the brand says, EXEED's presence in Dubai International Airport is just a starting point signaling its upcoming entering into the international market. It is believed alongside optimization of models of the series and further materialization of its brand strategies, EXEED is highly expected to be an eye-catching series in the Middle East and even in the global market.

China Focus Staged a Shining Debut in Edinburgh


First year at Edinburgh International Festival, the third year at Fringe

EDINBURGH, Scotland, Aug. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- 2019 China Focus kicked off its third year on 3 August at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and the first time at Edinburgh International Festival, bringing the prestigious Chinese feast for senses along with six excellent Chinese theatre productions. 

China Focus 2019

Officials from the Chinese Embassy in the UK, Shanghai Municipal Government, Scottish and Edinburgh government, Edinburgh International Festival, the Fringe, and members of the press, along with key artists from the China Focus programme gathered on 22 August for the celebration of leading contemporary talents from East to West. 

The selected productions for 2019 China Focus include Shanghai Symphony Orchestra: Dvořák and Shostakovich, Rite of Spring at the Edinburgh International Festival (EIF); The Blue Bird, The King of Ghosts: Zhong Kui, Qi, Tang and Four Dreams at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. This is also the second time for Chinese productions to be selected by EIF in the past decade after Revenge of Prince Zi Dan and Peony Pavilion in 2011.

In celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China (PRC), China Focus aims to promote Chinese heritage and cultural products among international markets. China Focus is the celebration of excellence in Chinese theatre and dramatic production through high-quality art performances with both Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Each is a contemporary show that blends both China's traditional and its contemporary creative currents. 

China Focus triggered the pursuit of Chinese original works in the British cultural market. This is one of the outstanding achievements of the golden era between China and the UK, followed by the cooperation memo between the Shanghai Municipal Administration of Culture, Radio, Film & TV and the Festivals Edinburgh on November 2017, and a cooperation agreement between The Centre for China Shanghai International Arts Festival and the Edinburgh International Festival on April 2018.

China Focus proves to be a dynamic strategy and platform to encourage innovation in the UK-China art industries. By bringing exquisite and thrilling selection of theatre productions, the annual programme will continue to grow as a mainstay of Edinburgh Festivals' Chinese cultural showcase and strengthen existing relationships and build new links between individuals and organisations in art and culture industries, as well as between governments.

2019 China Focus is supported by Bureau of International Exchanges and Cooperation, Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the People's Republic of China, Shanghai Municipal Administration of Culture and Tourism, The Culture Office, Embassy of the People's Republic of China in the UK, China National Tourist Office, London and Information Office of Shanghai Municipality; organised by The Centre for China Shanghai International Arts Festival and Edinburgh International Festival; co-organised by Branding Shanghai.

Chinese Home Appliance Brand KONKA Continuing Cooperation to Explore New Opportunities for Global Development


SHENZHEN, China, Aug. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On the afternoon of August 1, HOHO, an Egyptian electrical appliance company, and KONKA, a leading Chinese home appliance company, established cooperative relationship at Four Seasons Hotel, Cairo, in a bid to establish a joint venture company to expand their operations in the African market with concerted efforts. Former Prime Minister of Egypt, the Counsellor of the Chinese Embassy in Egypt, the Secretary-General of the Cairo Chamber of Commerce and main partners of KONKA in Egypt were present at the event.

This comes as another milestone for KONKA to explore the African market. Earlier, KONKA had already begun to explore the African market by formally joining hands with JUMIA, the largest e-commerce platform in Africa. It reached the top of the platform in TV sales in Egypt within three months, enjoying a good reputation in the local market.

KONKA Production Line

At present, China's color TV market is experiencing a slowdown. As a populous country in the Middle East and Africa, Egypt, boasting its fast-growing market and low labor costs, has drawn the attention of many Chinese home appliance companies. However, KONKA adopts a new model of localized operation this time, quickly opening up the local market with HOHO's mature industrial production qualification and sales network. "A differentiated development strategy serves as the greatest value for KONKA to step into African market and spread its wings," said Chang Dong, Assistant President of KONKA Group Co., Ltd..

KONKA is not just eyeing the Egyptian market, but also other major markets in Africa. The joint venture is capable of manufacturing more than 50% of featured products locally. When the market operations and development get stable, KONKA's influence may be further spread to the Middle East, Africa and even Euro-American region.

JNA Awards honouring three retail pioneers for their lifetime achievements


HONG KONG, Aug. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The JNA Awards is honouring three outstanding leaders from the jewellery industry as Recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award. Sharing the same passion and a dream, these entrepreneurs have each transformed the retail sector and influence the industry in their own respective way.

Cao Thi Ngoc Dung, Founder and Chairperson of Phu Nhuan Jewelry Joint Stock Company (PNJ); Hung Ming Li, Founder and Chairman of Taiwan-based Chii Lih Coral (Chii Lih); and Wang Chun Li, Managing Director and General Manager of Beijing Caishikou Department Store (Beijing Caibai) will be honoured at the JNA Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner on 17 September during the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair.

"The JNA Awards was founded to recognise innovative ideas, best-in-class business practices and successful business models. Honouring these ladies with such vision and perseverance exemplifies what this award stands for," explained Letitia Chow, Chairperson of the JNA Awards and Director of Business Development - Jewellery Group at Informa Markets.

Cao Thi Ngoc Dung, Founder and Chairperson of PNJ


Hung Ming Li, Founder and Chairman of Chii Lih


Wang Chun Li, Managing Director and General Manager of Beijing Caibai

Cao Thi Ngoc Dung

Cao began with the intention of reviving the traditional Vietnamese jewellery industry. Believing that "anything that can be made overseas could be made domestically," she persevered and engaged in self-research by joining jewellery expos, visiting and studying large jewellery factories across Asia, and investing on state-of-the-art technology that would become essential in growing PNJ.

Under Cao's leadership, PNJ has grown from an initial team of 20 to become the largest jewellery retailer in Vietnam employing nearly 7,000 staff. Its products are carried in nearly 400 outlets in 55 provinces, and PNJ has brought Vietnamese jewellery to the global scale by exporting to 13 countries.

In 2012, PNJ was ranked 16th in the top 500 list of the world's largest jewellery, manufacturing and trading companies by Plimsoll UK. She was also recognised as one of Forbes Vietnam's Top 50 Most Influential Women in 2018 and 2019; and one of its Top 50 Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs in Asia in 2016.

On receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award, Cao said, "I would like to sincerely thank the JNA Awards organiser for this honour. This award has brought me pride and has motivated me even more in contributing to the growth of PNJ and the Vietnamese jewellery industry in general."

Hung Ming Li

Hung established Chii Lih in 1973 with the mission of promoting Taiwan's most precious gem corals to the world. Under her leadership, the company has evolved from being a small traditional coral processing factory and wholesaler in Kaohsiung, to a world-renowned jewellery enterprise over the past 40 years.

"Looking at the coral dredged up from the sea, my heart was deeply touched. I have been thinking that these are very precious marine resources and national treasures from Taiwan. We should bring such a local industry to greater heights of development and glorify it from our land," she shared.

While many decided to leave the coral gemstone industry when the economy declined in the '90s, Hung stayed true to her convictions that coral would always be one of the most important treasures of Taiwan. Along with her staff, she persevered and continued to weather the economic turmoil.

To stay on course, Hung actively participated in international jewellery tradeshows in Asia, America and Europe to strengthen Taiwan's reputation as the "Coral Kingdom," and is eventually recognised as a leading company in this sector.

Wang Chun Li

When Wang was the head of yellow gold products department at Beijing Caibai, which was operating as a department store at that time, she led a modest team to create a special strategy for selling yellow gold jewellery.

Through the years, Wang went from one achievement to the next, becoming the first enterprise in China to sell CNY 100 million (USD 14.5million) of yellow gold in 1994. In the same year, Wang, together with her management team, successfully restructured Beijing Caibai from a state-owned company to a private share-holding structure by raising funds from its employees and legal person. Beijing Caibai eventually became a specialised gold jewellery store, consistently topping sales chart in Beijing and retail stores in China for 29 years.

Besides from providing excellent after-sales service, she was insistence in protecting consumers on the authenticity by ensuring products sold under her obtained certification from global standardisation and exercising strict quality-control along the supply chain.

PRN: New IDTechEx Report Shows Wearables Are Now Worth Over $50bn Per Year as Growth Quietly Continues Thu, 22 Aug 2019 23:40:14 +0200 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

New IDTechEx Report Shows Wearables Are Now Worth Over $50bn Per Year as Growth Quietly Continues


BOSTON, Aug. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- IDTechEx's latest report on the topic has found that wearable technology products will be worth over $50bn in 2019. In fact, the total market size has doubled in size since 2014, placing wearables as one of the most consistently successful markets around consumer electronics in the last 5 years. However, in 2019 headlines have been less frequent, investment has become more focused, and generally the hype around wearables has all but faded. IDTechEx's most comprehensive study of wearable technology looks at how this sector has evolved over the last few years, and how things will change in the coming decade. The report "Wearable Technology Forecasts 2019-2029" can be found at

Wearables: Hype, revenue and growth rate. This figure is a summary of some headline historic data provided in IDTechEx's definitive report on wearable technology: “Wearable Technology Forecasts 2019-2029”. Source: IDTechEx.

The report describes how the growth in the last five years has been driven by several key product types including smartwatches, continuous glucose monitoring devices (CGM), hearing aids, headphones and AR, VR & MR. The report looks at each of these sectors in detail, pro! viding as sessments and market data across all of the key players, technology, and in the current themes for each product area. In addition, there have been many new types of wearable technology product in this time, ranging from new types of electronic skin patch, to smart apparel based on electronic textiles, to other new form factors for devices from footwear, to rings, to headbands. In assessing 48 separate product types, the IDTechEx report is unique in its breadth of coverage across all wearable electronic products.

The report looks at the wearable technology landscape as a sum of its parts. The chapters in the report focus on each of the individual product sectors within the much wider theme of wearables. It is within these product sectors that the most comparison can be drawn, with discrete sets of players, themes, technology and progress, and relatively minimal overlap and competition between sectors. Each chapter in the report addresses a different sector, including smartwatches & fitness trackers, smart eyewear (including VR, AR & MR), hearables (including headphones & hearing aids), smart clothing and e-textiles, electronic skin patches, and overviews of various other themes. Through researching the topic over the last decade, IDTechEx have encountered thousands of different companies (e.g. maintaining a database of over 1200 companies), had site visits, face-to-face meetings and telephone interviews with several hundred of these companies, and have included key dat! a from ma ny of these conversations throughout the report.

The approach of looking by sector, but then observing the bigger picture of how these sit under the "wearables" banner reveals some very interesting trends from recent years. For example, IDTechEx track a series of relevant metrics to understand the "state of the industry," including search trends, patent trends, investment data (funding and number of rounds), number of product launches, and key revenue and product shipment volume data across each of the 48 product forecast lines included in the report. When aggregating trend indicators together, it is possible to see the clear hype curve for wearables, peaking in 2015 and falling since. This hype curve actually correlates relatively well with the growth rate in the overall industry, increasing to a peak at 36% growth between 2014 and 2015, but falling to the 10-20% range per year ever since. However, despite the clearly reduced hype, this growth has led to a doubling in annual revenue generated in the sector in this time! . This da ta is summarized in the figure above.

So despite the attention shifting elsewhere, IDTechEx's report finds that wearable technology products continue to see excellent sustained growth, generating billions of dollars of new revenue each year. For more information about the report, its table of contents, listing of companies mentioned, forecast databases and methodology, key insights and other relevant information, please see the report page on the IDTechEx website or email

PRN: Mars, Incorporated Joins G7 Business for Inclusive Growth Coalition Powered by the OECD Thu, 22 Aug 2019 19:40:17 +0200 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Mars, Incorporated Joins G7 Business for Inclusive Growth Coalition Powered by the OECD


Companies joining forces to tackle inequality


-- Business for Inclusive Growth (B4IG) coalition to be launched in connection with the G7 Leaders' Summit in Biarritz, France

-- Mars joins initiative sponsored by French President Emmanuel Macron, spearheaded by Danone and coordinated by OECD

-- Call to action for other companies to join first-of-a-kind B4IG coalition

-- Coalition companies investing a combined total of 1 billion USD in more than 50 current and future initiatives

MCLEAN, Virginia, Aug. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Mars, Incorporated is among a coalition of 34 leading international companies that has committed to step up business action to advance human rights throughout their value chains, build inclusive workplaces and strengthen inclusion in their internal and external business ecosystems.

For Mars, joining this group is an extension of the ambitions set out in its Sustainable in a Generation Plan and the company's commitment to a healthy planet, thriving people and nourishing wellbeing.

The G7 B4IG coalition will be coordinated by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Its members cover a broad range of sectors, employ more than 3.5 million people around the world and have combined annual revenues of over 1 trillion USD.

The B4IG coalition is the first business-led initiative of its kind, thanks to its 360° approach to tackling inequality, international dimension, and multi-stakeholder approach focused on building synergies between companies, governments and philanthropic organizations.

The coalition's strategy rests on three pillars: 

  • A Business Pledge Against Inequalities to advance human rights, workplace inclusion & diversity and value chain inclusiveness;
  • An incubator to design or expand new inclusive business models, piloting social innovation and private-public collaboration at the micro-economic level; and
  • An inclusive growth financing forum to promote innovative financing mechanism between business, governments and philanthropic actors.

Coalition member companies have put forward over 50 projects representing more than 1 billion USD in investments for the B4IG incubator program â€�” with the ambition of sharing and scaling up through collaboration.  Mars has put forward multiple projects, including its Cocoa & Women for Change program which is is part of the broader Mars Cocoa for Generations strategy â€�“ a long-term approach to enhancing responsible and sustainable practices in the Mars cocoa supply chain glob! ally.

Speaking at the announcement, Mars CEO Grant F. Reid said: "Mutuality, one of the core principles at Mars, is about creating enduring benefits which are shared. It isn't about philanthropy, but rather an understanding that a business can only be successful if it also enables all of its partners, community and the environment to thrive. That's why we're joining the B4IG effort to help create a more inclusive economy which enables greater opportunity for all."

Mr. Reid added: "We want to demonstrate the power of leadership and collaboration â€�“ so much more is possible if we work together. Delivering on our ambitions won't be easy. But, powered by this kind of cross-sector collaboration, we are optimistic that we can build a movement to create a tomorrow we are all proud of."

Speaking at a launch event for the G7 B4IG initiative in presence of President Macron at the Elysée Palace today, Danone Chairman and CEO Emmanuel Faber said: "The middle-class is shrinking in most G7 countries, whereas it is the foundation of market economy around the world. And we know that beyond a certain threshold, inequalities are economically damaging. Smartphones used by Gen Z make inequalities more visible than ever and shift social consensus. The result is that market economy will not last without more social justice. It's not a matter of ideology, it is hard realism that calls us to a collective and inclusive action, for both governments and companies. With B4IG, our aim is to build a constructive dialogue to advance social inclusion, pilot and scale innovative, inclusive micro-economic business models, and thereby help inform macroeconomic policies."

Gabriela Ramos, OECD Chief of Staff and G7 Sherpa, said: "Growing inequality is one of the biggest social challenges in the world today. It is perpetuating poverty, undermining social cohesion and trust. Sustainable economic growth means inclusive economic growth. It means giving every individual the opportunity to fulfil her or his potential, the chance not only to contribute to a nation's growth but to benefit from it, regardless of their background or origins. The OECD welcomes this initiative by France to involve some of the world's most important companies to work hand-in-hand with governments and the OECD to tackle inequalities. For our part, we will continue to lead the way in its policy analysis, research and expertise."

APPENDIX â€�“ G7 Business for Inclusive Growth pillars

1/ Pledge ensuring benefits of economic growth are shared more widely through public-private cooperation

The Business for Inclusive Growth (B4IG) Pledge commits Mars to advance human rights throughout their production chains, fight child and forced labor and respect freedom of association. Signatories agree to build equitable and inclusive working environments, including by providing decent wages, promoting gender equality and helping prepare employees for the future of work through training and upskilling programs. The companies also commit to tackling inequalities of opportunity such as those caused by regional disadvantages by supporting community development programs, strengthening inclusive sourcing and expanding access and affordability of basic services.

Among the B4IG coalition, Mars will commit specifically to a three-year program aimed at advancing the ambitions laid out in the pledge. Underpinning the pledge is the view that such engagement is not just good corporate citizenship but is the future of successful business. Business benefits from more inclusive growth models through a more educated and engaged workforce; a larger middle class of consumers with greater purchasing power; more stable operating environments; and a high level of trust from employees, customers and stakeholders.

2/ Business for Inclusive Growth (B4IG) Incubator: a platform where companies can incubate, share, scale-up and replicate new inclusive business approaches.

The B4IG incubator will act as a laboratory to test, scale and replicate social innovation projects. It aims to ensure micro-economic action can inform macro-economic policies at the G7 level and beyond.

B4IG members have already earmarked over 50 projects to the platform, mobilizing more than one billion USD in private finance and benefiting 100 million people to date. Through B4IG, they will look to leverage these projects to strengthen their collective social impact worldwide.

Certain projects will be accelerated, scaled or replicated through the B4IG incubator, leveraging collaboration with other coalition members, philanthropic organizations and the public sector. In addition, companies will share learnings from projects that are already underway and that can serve as inclusive business models to be emulated or replicated. Among the projects earmarked are schemes to tackle homelessness, help the unemployed back into work and improve access to basic services such as finance, insurance and transport in deprived and remote regions in G7 countries.

3/ An inclusive Growth Financing Forum to bring synergies between financing streams

B4IG members will also establish an Inclusive Growth Financing Forum, to catalyze innovative, hybrid financing for social impact, and to assess how to build greater synergies between private, public and philanthropic funding streams. The Forum will look at how to test and expand promising financing mechanisms such as results-based financing, through the B4IG incubator.

St Kitts and Nevis Improved Its Citizenship by Investment Programme, New CBI Index Finds


BASSETERRE, St Kitts and Nevis, Aug. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Financial Times' Professional Wealth Management (PWM) magazine announced this week that St Kitts and Nevis' 35-year-old Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme has improved significantly. In a special annual report, called the 2019 CBI Index, the twin-island nation is commended for its Programme's high security standards, convenient travel and residence requirements, and a more efficient citizenship timeline.

St Kitts and Nevis stood out in the 2019 CBI Index for its CBI Programme’s high security standards, convenient travel and residence requirements, and a more efficient citizenship timeline.

St Kitts and Nevis received full marks in three of the seven pillars against which programmes are assessed, specifically due diligence, citizenship timeline, and mandatory travel or residence. The Programme was also scored with nine points out of 10 in another two pillars: minimum investment outlay and ease of processing! . Importa ntly, the Federation has improved its overall score by four points, placing it comfortably on the podium of the world's best CBI programmes.

FT specialists took good note of the country's expanding diplomatic relations diligently carried out by Foreign Minister Mark Brantley. "St Kitts and Nevis maintained its upward trajectory regarding visa-free and visa-on-arrival offerings," mentions the report. At the moment, St Kitts and Nevis passport holders can access approximately two thirds of the world's countries without the need of a visa, including business hubs like Hong Kong, Singapore, London or Geneva.

Over the course of the past year, the Government of St Kitts and Nevis announced new security measures aimed at strengthening the CBI Programme's due diligence checks. Digital fingerprinting was one of them, as was the proposal for stricter rules for escrow accounts. Furthermore, agents found to be misrepresenting the Programme have had their licences revoked. This was a welcomed measure highlighted in the independent study, reinforcing St Kitts and Nevis' status as the "Platinum Standard" of CBI.

While improving its due diligence framework, St Kitts and Nevis managed to speed up the time it takes to process citizenship applications, after it was faced with a sudden high demand for one of the fund options. The 2019 CBI Index found that the Programme has "improved its citizenship timeline following clearance of the applications submitted during the temporary Hurricane Relief Fund [HRF] option." Prime Minister Timothy Harris replaced the HRF investment channel last year with the Sustainable Growth Fund, succeeding in making it the most straightforward route to St Kitts and Nevis' citizenship.

International Currency Exchange Research Reveals Brits Stay Home Amid Brexit Currency Confusion


- 39% of Brits aged 50+ haven't left the country to go on holiday in the past year

- 40% said that money worries are the main barrier for not taking more holidays

LONDON, Aug. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Continued turmoil around Brexit over a possible no deal is causing widespread confusion over currency and travel plans, as four in 10 (39%) Brits have not left the country to go on holiday in the past year.

New research from foreign exchange provider International Currency Exchange, (ICE), shows that Brexit is forcing us to reconsider our holiday spending, as four in 10 Brits aged 50 and over (40%) said their biggest limitation to taking more holidays was cost.

Amid money worries, those Brits who are travelling abroad are opting for familiarity with a third of baby-boomers returning to the same destination every year and picking trips that are 'comfortable and familiar' (30%).

Louis Bridger, Head of UK at ICE, said: "Every time there has been added Brexit turbulence, it hasn't been good news for consumers and their travel money. A weaker Pound has meant more expensive holidays for Brits but our advice is 'don't panic'; so long as you're savvy with your spending, you can still get away."

To help ease the financial cost of holidays and make the most of travel money, ICE has launched its new prepaid card, the Clear card, which aims to inspire feelings of freedom and adventure, allowing you to lock in the rate when you top-up which can protect you from any negative shifts in currency.

According to research by KPMG looking at the effects of spending due to Brexit, more than a fifth of British consumers (22%) have avoided 'big ticket' purchases due to Brexit-driven uncertainty, with overseas holiday sales the hardest hit.

Louis Bridger offers advice on steps to minimise costs on your holiday:

  • Look outside the Eurozone
    Choose a holiday destination with a good exchange rate. Destinations where Brits can enjoy excellent value include Turkey, South Africa, Poland, Romania and Morocco.
  • Plan ahead
    As a general rule, you'll get a much better rate when you order your travel money online, rather than waiting until you get to the airport.
  • Consider a prepaid card
    Prepaid cards, like the ICE Clear card, offer competitive exchange rate! s, and al so protect you from being charged transaction fees abroad as you would with your debit or credit card.

The International Dota 2 Championships 2019 Kicks off in China


SHANGHAI, Aug. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Dota 2 Championships 2019, also known as TI9, kicked off at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China on August 20. This is the first time that an Asian city is hosting the annual tournament since 2011.

The opening ceremony of The International Dota 2 Championships 2019

At the opening ceremony, Gabe Newell, co-founder of American video game developer and the developer of the game Valve, extended his thanks to the the Shanghai government and citizens for hosting the event on behalf of the entire Dota 2 community, intoning in Chinese: "Xie xie, Shanghai (Thank you, Shanghai)!"

Gabe Newell, co-founder of Valve, spoke to the players and audiences at the opening ceremony.

Audiences at the venue witnessed a Chinese fans dance show to the accompaniment music that was a perfect blend of a symphony orchestra and Chinese folk music, representing the fusion of Eastern and Western cultures. Then, to the sound of a resonant battle drum, the participating teams ascended the stage. As the defending champion due to their win last year, the OG team came out last, showcasing the glory of the TI9 event: The Aegis Shield.

As the opening ceremony came to an end, the opening game of the main event began between the PSG.LGD and VP teams. Sixteen teams from around the world had competed fiercely to gain entrance to the main stadium. The final lineup of contestants will embark on a six-day final race in pursuit of the championship trophy. By the end of the opening ceremony, the prize pools to be distributed at TI9 had exceeded US$33 million, with 45.5 percent allocated to the championship team. TI9's total prize pools exceeded that of World Cup, becoming the world's first e-sports competition with a single prize exceeding tens of millions of dollars.

Shanghai's favorable e-sports policies paved the way for a successful TI9

In recent years, a series of favorable policies meant to attract the e-sports sector were issued by the Shanghai government as the city makes every effort to transform itself into a global e-sports capital. Last year, at an event in Vancouver (Canada), Shanghai's former vice mayor Weng Tiehui announced that the TI9 event would take place in the Chinese city in 2019.

By this summer, the favorable regional policies, combined with top e-sports event like TI9, had made Shanghai the most appealing city in the eyes of e-sports enthusiasts around the world.

E-sports enthusiasts who watched the competition said that the magnificent venues in which the TI9 took place made evident the degree to which China has "earned their chops" in terms of holding the world's top e-sports event.

TI9's promotional films have been very successful in showcasing the city's charisma. The creation of an e-sports atmosphere in several metro stations including the China Art Museum and Century Avenue stations demonstrated the cultural soft power reflected by the combination of the e-sports sector, Chinese culture in general and Shanghai's urban culture.

Perfect World to build an e-sports event brand

As the official distributor of Dota 2 at mainland China, Perfect World has maintained an excellent relationship with Valve, with the goal of delivering high-quality game and e-sports competition experiences to players. Valve's decision to hold TI9 in Shanghai is not only a great boon for players based in China but also in the whole of Asia, the decision is also a full affirmation of the long-term, successful management of the event alongside Perfect World's execution ability.

Previously, Perfect World had accumulated a wealth of experience through hosting some of Valve's world-class e-sports competitions. Established in 2015, the Dota 2 Asia Championships (DAC) have been staged successfully three times, becoming one of the most influential and large Dota 2 events outside the TI series. Perfect World also held professional competitions such as the Perfect World Masters and the SuperMajor, and held two world-class competitions in 2018 alone.

In the non-professional field, Perfect World has developed the College League and the City Challenge to encourage players to join the system, building new blood and solidifying the authority of the standardized and comprehensive event system.

With higher-than-expected influence, TI9 not only realizes the dream of e-sports for professionals and enthusiasts, but also gives additional impetus to China's e-sports sector. The sector is expected to gain even greater visibility from products, events, team brokers and other industry segments, while leading e-sports companies, of which Perfect World is one, are expected to become the main beneficiaries and continue to maintain their advantages in future competitions.
