PRN: Omdia 5G report: live networks pass 100 in 3Q20, 85% of CSPs yet to launch Fri, 23 Oct 2020 12:47:55 +0200 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Omdia 5G report: live networks pass 100 in 3Q20, 85% of CSPs yet to launch


LONDON, Oct. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --

  • 5G mobile broadband launches passed 100 during 3Q20.
  • Western Europe has the largest number of 5G launches, followed by Asia-Pacific.
  • With Apple's iPhone 12 launch, 5G coverage and network quality is even more of a critical area of differentiation and competition for service providers.

The number of commercial 5G mobile broadband networks launched globally hit 109 in Q3 2020, according to Omdia's latest 5G Service Provider Tracker. When taking into account networks that use 5G to deliver home broadband services (Fixed Wireless Access, 'FWA'), the total number of Communication Service Provider (CSP) launches reached 140 at end-3Q20.

Western Europe has the largest number of commercial 5G mobile broadband networks, at 33, followed by Asia-Pacific with 31, and the Middle East, with 17. The Middle East has the highest number of live 5G FWA networks, at 11, followed by Western Europe, with 8, and Asia-Pacific, with 6.

5G is already the second-fastest-growing new cellular network technology ever launched by the telecoms industry, behind only the first mass-market mobile service, 2G (GSM). The number of mobile broadband networks is 38% higher than it was for 4G two full years after the first launches, while in its first full year of commercial services 5G exceeded the total number of subscriptions 4G had after three years. 

Even with a strong start there still remains huge scope for growth for 5G as 85 % of CSPs have yet to launch 5G. This is partly due to local governments not making the 5G spectrum available yet. By 2025 Omdia expects there will be over three billion 5G mobile subscriptions, representing nearly one third of all total mobile subscriptions.

Paul Lambert, Principal Analyst at Omdia, commented: "The telecoms industry has been more successful than ever in agreeing extremely complex 5G technology standards, and then manufacturing network equipment and devices that enable service providers that want to get a head-start on 5G to launch.

"As activity shifts increasingly online, 5G, like previous technology generations, will both expand on and enhance the way people experience their connected digital lives. For specialist users, such as gamers, industries, and businesses, 5G also brings quicker response times, so that data-heavy experiences, services, and applications feel more vivid and immediate."  

Consumer Interest:

5G smartphones from leading manufacturers such as Samsung and Huawei have been in the market for over a year, however consumer interest in 5G is set to grow following October's iPhone 12 launch, Apple's first 5G device.

Apple's launch will have a significant effect on the global telecoms industry as it will encourage service providers across the globe that have yet to build their 5G networks to begin their planning in earnest. It will also enable CSPs to justify the new investments required to expand and enhance coverage beyond initial areas because more people will be ready to access 5G.

Meanwhile, even faster 5G speeds made possible by mmWave spectrum, which the iPhone 12 currently supports in the US, will enable service providers and their partners to create rich new site-specific services, for example in stadiums and shopping centres.

CGTN: China marks 70th Anniversary of War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea, calls for cherishing world peace


BEIJING, Oct. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- China on Friday held an event to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Chinese People's Volunteers (CPV) army entering the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea (1950-1953).

Chinese President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), delivered a speech at the event, urging the nation to remember history, carry forward the spirit of the CPV and advance socialism with new characteristics.

Read the original article here.

Remembering the war

Speaking at event, the Chinese president stressed that the great victory of the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea will forever be engraved in the history of the Chinese nation and the history of peace, development and progress of mankind.

Xi hailed the historic significance of the War to Resist U.S. aggression and Aid Korea, noting the "great war" defied the invasion and expansion of imperialism and safeguarded the security of New China.

The war also safeguarded the peaceful life of the Chinese people, stabilized the situation in the Korean Peninsula and upheld peace in Asia and the world, he said.

Eight months after the founding of the People's Republic of China, the Korean War broke out in June 1950. The flames of war soon reached the Yalu River, the China-DPRK border river and wreaked havoc in Dandong, in northeast China's Liaoning Province, with buildings bombed and civilians killed in U.S. air strikes.

It was a time when the new China had its armed forces poorly equipped, without combat-able air and navy forces. However, at the request of the DPRK, Chinese People's Volunteers (CPV) army entered the Korean Peninsula in October 1950 to aid the DPRK until a truce was reached in 1953.

President Xi said the victory is a declaration that the Chinese have stood firm in the East, adding that the victory laid a foundation for New China's status in Asian and international affairs.

Carry forward CPV's spirit

A total of 2.9 million CPV soldiers joined the battlefield over two years and nine month. And more than 197,000 of them sacrificed their lives in the war.

Xi lauded the great patriotism demonstrated by the CPV in their battle against a powerful enemy, urging the Chinese people to carry forward the spirit in the new era and striving to achieve national rejuvenation.

Xi pointed out that the CPV army demonstrated their patriotism, heroism, optimism, devotion to their mission and also a spirit that strives for world peace and justice in the war. All these should be passed down from generation to generation, he stressed.

The Chinese president added the tenacity forged during the war will inspire the Chinese people and the whole nation to defy hegemony, unite and to boost the fighting abilities with determination to overcome all challenges and difficulties in their way.

Safeguard world peace

By commemorating the war, China does not intend to continue any hatred. Rather, it is time to draw courage from history to bravely tackle the new challenges of today and better promote world peace and development.

Xi in his speech stressed that the victory of the war has shown that justice is sure to prevail over power, and peaceful development is an irreversible historic trend.

He urged efforts to safeguard world peace and justice, saying China as a major responsible country is ready to work with the world people to build a community with a shared future for humanity.

China has reiterated it pursues a national defense policy that is defensive in nature. President Xi also pointed out China's military will always be a staunch force that safeguards world peace.

Xi also said the Chinese people cherish peace but will never compromise in face of threats or be subdued by suppression.

"China never seeks hegemony or expansion and firmly opposes hegemonism and power politics," he pointed out, adding that China will never allow its national sovereignty, security and development interests to be undermined.

Chinese people are firm and confident while looking ahead to the bright prospect of the national rejuvenation, Xi stressed.

Governing Bodies Buoy the Expansion of Betting Regulations


- News Commentary

NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- After months of canceled sports events, one of America's favorite past times is now back. With sports, online betting is also resurfacing as a topic of debate. As it is still a relatively new market and the legal infrastructure for it is still often unclear, some states are acting to resolve the situation. For example, earlier in July, the Massachusetts House passed a USD 459 Million economic development bill, which includes funding for non-profits affected by the pandemic, local projects and language legalizing sports betting. In particular, the new bill describes three license categories for betting, one for online and in-person betting at casinos, a second for in-person betting at race tracks and the third for sports betting on mobile or other digital-only platforms. FansUnite Entertainment Inc. (OTC: FUNFF) (CSE: FANS), International Game Technology PLC (NYSE: ! IGT), Pen n National Gaming, Inc. (NASDAQ: PENN), MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM), DraftKings Inc. (NASDAQ: DKNG)

More and more partnerships between casinos, betting services and sports leagues are now being agreed upon. For example, just earlier this week, International Game Technology further differentiated its PlaySports sports betting solution through a multi-year partnership with the NBA. "Partnering with the NBA to bring official league data to our PlaySports customers further validates IGT's seriousness about delivering an unrivaled sports betting solution for the U.S. market and supports the 'all-in-one' proposition that we offer," said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital Senior Vice President. "With the rise in popularity of in-play, prop and parlay bets, having access to official, real-time NBA data feeds and league marks and logos positions IGT to collaborate with our PlaySports customers in creating highly compelling betting menus for sports fans across the country."

FansUnite Entertainment Inc. (OTC: FUNFF) (CSE: FANS) announced yesterday breaking news that, "Askott Games has signed with a leading online casino games aggregator to distribute its proprietary Random Number Generated (RNG) games to online casinos and sportsbooks in the European market.

The first casino game aggregator to publish the Askott Games content will be The Ear Platform. The Ear is a European-focused aggregator that will give Askott Games access to more than 120 online gaming sites they are integrated with.

FansUnite has produced unique esports and video game-themed RNG/casino games under the Askott Games brand, which are ready to be launched to the market. Besides hosting the games on its B2B offering, the Chameleon Gaming Platform, Askott Games will sign agreements with existing casino game aggregators to make the games available to thousands of online casinos and sportsbooks worldwide. Game aggregators compile the best casino games they can find and offer them to online casinos and sportsbooks through a single integration. Given that the arrangements are on a revenue share basis, Askott Games will receive a share of the net gaming revenue every time one of their games is played.

'When we started Askott Games we knew that online casinos were looking for ways to reach and engage with younger customers that were not interested in traditional casino offerings,' said Scott Burton, CEO of FansUnite Entertainment. 'The positive response we have received for our internally produced esports and video game-themed RNG games validates this thesis.'

'This integration with Ear will provide more exposure to our games and will enable us to market to over 120 websites and thousands of end customers. This deal and the ones thereafter, give us the ability to sell our games through the networks aggregators have built and provide us the ability to quickly scale while producing a steady stream of recurring revenue to our overall business.'

Andrei Siomela, Commercial Director of The Ear Platform, added, 'We pride ourselves on having the best casino offerings available to our customers. Currently, we provide over 120 iGaming sites throughout Europe with casino games developed by tier 1 game providers. With the games that Askott is producing, we can offer games specifically designed for the most desirable audience, 18-30-year-olds, to our partners. Our customers are looking for solutions that appeal the most to this demographic. We can't wait to have Askott Games incorporated into our platform, and we have been very excited to see the pipeline of games that the Askott team has in development.'

Askott Games is currently completing its fourth game with plans for over ten within the next 12 months. With this announcement, FansUnite will also be launching the dedicated Askott Games ( site and begin business development."

Sicilian art critic Paolo Battaglia La Terra Borgese made possible to donate a portrait of founder Vincenzo Sellaro to the OSDIA


ROME, Oct. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Italian Art Critic Paolo Battaglia la Terra Borgese, honorary member of the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America has made possible the donation of a portrait of the founder of the oldest and most consolidated organization in support of US citizens of Italian descent. OSDIA "Capitolo di Roma" founder and president, Carmelo Cutuli, thanks him and all who made possible this friendship sign between Italian-Americans and their motherland.

The portrait of Dr. Vincenzo Sellaro painted by Sicilian painter Sergio Potenzano with the criticism document signed by Art Critic Paolo Battaglia La Terra Borgese will be permanently exhibited in the Washington DC National Headquarters of the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America.

Vincenzo Sellaro, a Sicilian doctor native of Polizzi Generosa, emigrated to the United States at the beginning of XX century where he was the founder of the first Italian Hospital in America and later worked hard to bring together the many Fraternal Societies for Italians in America into one large organization which was called 'Ordine dei Figli d'Italia in America', today known as the Order of the Sons and Daughters of Italy in America, the oldest and most consolidated organization supporting American citizens of Italian descent.

The work of Potenzano, a 100x90 cm canvas made of acrylic, was donated, thanks to the interest of Mr. Battaglia La Terra Borgese, who also signed the critics, to the National Headquarters in Washington of this organization as a sign of deep friendship and gratitude from Motherland to their fellow countrymen who have sacrificed to abandon Italy, contributing to the growth of the United States of America as a Nation.

"I am very grateful that our OSDIA 'Capitolo di Roma'" â€�“ stated Carmelo Cutuli, founder and president of OSDIA 'Capitolo di Roma' #3002 - "the first territorial unit established outside the North American territory, in the 115 years since the foundation of OSDIA, has been able to contribute to this wonderful demonstration of friendship and gratitude to the Italian-American community. I want to thank in particular Siciian painter Sergio Potenzano and our honorary member Paolo Battaglia La Terra Borgese, who have made it possible."

"It is a great joy for me to have contributed" - said Art Critic Paolo Battaglia La Terra Borgese - "to make this gesture of friendship between the Italian-American community and Motherland possible. The founder of OSDIA, Sellaro, is remembered in New York with a statue placed in the neighborhood where he lived and worked. I felt it was my duty to bring from his land, Sicily, a corresponding tribute to such an important figure in the history of our compatriots on the other side of the Atlantic."

The painting was taken over by the American international courier UPS Italian partner Randazzo Srl, whose managing director Salvo Randazzo personally followed the various stages of the delicate transport to the final destination.

Plant-Based Products Aren't Just a Trend, They're Here to Stay


FN Media Group Presents Market Commentary

NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the past few years, plant-based meat and dairy substitutes have gone from a niche product to a major segment in the food industry. Now, these products are increasingly available just about everywhere you look in the food industry. Plant-based options are now available not just in your local grocery store but at your local pub and fast food joint. Plant-based products are now being offered by a wider range of brands from recently IPO'd startups to international giants. These products are also working their way into a wide range of subcategories in the food market, including infant nutrition and diet foods. In the wake of smash plant-based hits like Impossible Foods, companies like Else Nutrition Holdings Inc. (TSXV:BABY) (OTCQX:BABYF) and Forum Merger II (NASDAQ:FMCI) are finding unserved niches in the market, while established food companies like Tyson Fo ods (NYSE:TSN), ConAgra Brands (NYSE:CAG), and Kellogg (NYSE:K) play catch-up.

Else Nutrition Brings Plant-Based Products to the Infant Nutrition Space

Demand for plant-based foods extends far beyond just burgers. One of the companies that has moved to fill a previously unserved segment of the plant-based food market is Else Nutrition Holdings Inc. (TSXV:BABY) (OTCQX:BABYF), an Israel-based food and nutrition company focused on developing innovative, clean, and plant-based food and nutrition products for infants, toddlers, children, and adults. The company's flagship product is a non-soy, non-dairy plant-based infant nutrition formula. Else Nutrition celebrated its US product launch in August with products now available in retail stores and online.

On September 24, Else Nutrition announced that the company had made its products available to US consumers on The move makes Else's products available to more consumers than ever via the world's largest e-commerce platform. Direct-to-consumer online sales are a cornerstone of Else's go-to-market strategy, particularly as the ongoing global pandemic has driven up demand for products available via delivery. Additionally, Else Nutrition is also pushing to expand its presence in grocery and health food stores. The company announced on August 20 that it had hired a specialized broker! to help bring their products to one of the US's largest retail chains.

Else Nutrition announced on October 13 that Health and Happiness (H&H) International Holdings Limited, a global health and wellness company and a leading infant nutrition player in China, had increased its investment in the company by C$4.0 million. The private placement, which was previously announced on September 15, now totals C$25.7 million. Else Nutrition plans to use the funds to accelerate and increase its production and supply capabilities, marketing activities, and product development.

Companies Move into the Plant-Based Foods Market

Tyson Foods (NYSE:TSN), the largest meat company in the United States, announced in June that it would be moving into the plant-based meat alternative market. The company announced its new Raised & Rooted brand, which will sell plant-based and mixed meat/plant products. Tyson Foods, with its already massive consumer reach, says it expects plant-based foods to be a billion-dollar business for the company.

ConAgra Brands (NYSE:CAG), the parent company for brands like Orville Redenbacher, Hunts, and Duncan Hines, has been selling meat-free products through its Gardein brand since 2009, but as plant-based meat substitutes have surged in the market, the company is updating its offerings. On September 23, ConAgra announced a line of Gardein soups featuring plant-based meat alternatives.

Kellogg (NYSE:K) got in on the plant-based trend with its Incogmeato line of products. The company is focusing on products aimed at families and young children. To that end, Kellogg announced on September 17 that the company would be partnering with Disney for its latest plant-based offering, Mickey Mouse-branded "Chick'n" Nuggets.

On October 15, holding company Forum Merger II (NASDAQ:FMCI) announced a partnership with plant-based food company Ittella International to form the Tattooed Chef brand. Tattooed Chef will focus on a wide range of meatless foods, some of which will include plant-based meat alternatives. 

Plant-based alternatives to meat are the biggest trend in the food industry in years, and the marketplace is filling up fast. Companies like Else Nutrition are positioning themselves within specific, previously unserved segments of the food industry to ensure that they can become the main plant-based players in that space.

Capo Sant’Andrea, 5 buoni motivi per visitarlo “fuori stagione” Fri, 23 Oct 2020 11:00:07 +0200 jennifferglobal jennifferglobal Esplorare la zona nord occidentale dell’Isola d’Elba nel periodo autunnale conduce in un’atmosfera suggestiva fatta di colori che tappezzano il panorama di turchese, giallo e rosso, di profumi degli ultimi tagli di fieno, di aromi di uva pigiata e d’immersioni tra le sue bellezze storiche e culturali.


Ottobre 2020 – Capo Sant’Andrea è famoso per le sue cote piane, la spiaggia e per il suo mare. Luogo amatissimo per le vacanze estive, questa località incastonata tra Marciana e Marina di Campo, si presta a weekend di relax, cultura e divertimento anche durante gli altri mesi dell’anno. Il caldo estivo si protrae sino ad ottobre inoltrato, e i mesi di novembre e dicembre sono molto più caldi rispetto allo stivale. L’autunno caldo di ottobre invita ancora a tuffarsi per un bagno sulla costa selvaggia o in calette segrete raggiungibili solo in barca, mentre l’inverno - generalmente mite - offre una grande varietà di passeggiate nella natura per contemplare da vicino la meraviglia del Monte Capanne ammantato di neve o i panorami sulla Corsica decorata di bianco che emerge all’orizzonte. Le attività disponibili nel periodo di bassa stagione, sorprendono il visitatore sia per la varietà sia per la qualità delle esperienze.

Millenni di vicende e di popoli che si sono succeduti hanno lasciato inestimabili testimonianze sul suolo di questa parte dell’Isola d’Elba. Autunno e inverno sono stagioni ideali per conoscere la storia di questi luoghi. Percorrendo, ad esempio, il sentiero verso il Monte Capanne fino all’antica strada lastricata che raggiunge il Santuario della Madonna del Monte, si respirerà una parte del suggestivo lascito dell’importante presenza di Napoleone sull’Isola. Qui, infatti, si trova l’Eremo della Madonna del Monte, ed è a questa Madonna che Napoleone si recò a domandare protezione per colei che una volta chiamava "la mia sposa polacca". Dirigendosi verso la spiaggia di Cotoncello emerge, invece, il passato Etrusco dell’Isola. Qui è possibile ammirare i celebri schiumuli di ferro, testimonianza della metallurgia etrusca, ovvero dei forni usati dagli Etruschi per la riduzione del ferro, metallo che ha rappresentato una delle risorse principali dell’Isola d’Elba, portandola al centro delle rotte mediterranee.

In Autunno, i profumi del sottobosco richiamano gli appassionati in cerca di funghi e castagne. La generosa macchia regala porcini, ovuli, gallastruzzi, pinaioli, lecciotti e moltissime altre qualità di funghi, per un totale di oltre 200 specie. Gli appassionati non avranno che l’imbarazzo della scelta, a partire dai numerosi sentieri disponibili che conducono verso una moltitudine di microcosmi basati su delicati equilibri, contemplando scorci panoramici di grande effetto. Incamminandosi sul versante Nord del massiccio del Monte Capanne, tra i boschi di lecci, sarà possibile incontrare sia innumerevoli tipologie di funghi -  tra cui il più ricercato è sicuramente il porcino nero – sia una folta macchia di castagni che regala meravigliosi marroni.

La tradizione vitivinicola dell’Isola d’Elba affonda le sue origini nell’antico Impero Romano e arriva fino ai giorni nostri. Le sue fertili terre hanno nutrito vitigni dalle caratteristiche uniche in virtù delle sue peculiari qualità climatiche e ambientali. Le strutture alberghiere di Capo Sant’Andrea propongono ai propri ospiti visite guidate che percorrono le cosiddette “strade del vino” elbane, apprezzando la tradizione enologica del luogo tra passiti, bianchi da uva Ansonica, rossi e rosati, ma anche addentrandosi in antichi vigneti, cantine, vinsantaie e frantoi e molte altre attrattive naturalistiche, culturali e storiche. 

I viaggiatori più sportivi possono invece scegliere di intraprendere emozionanti escursioni in kayak, solcare le acque turchesi nel silenzio e nella pace di una natura magnifica ed instaurando un contatto intimo e personale con l’ambiente circostante. Percorrendo l’itinerario che da Capo Sant’Andrea conduce a Marciana Marina sarà possibile imbattersi in uno scenario mozzafiato composto da calette raggiungibili solo via mare e rocce scoscese. Scegliendo invece il percorso a ovest di Capo Sant’Andrea, verso il faro di Punta Polveraia, nelle giornate più serene si può ammirare la Corsica e, a volte, la sorpresa di poter vedere tra lo specchio d’acqua cristallino qualche resto di antiche navi appartenenti ad altre epoche, qui affondate con i loro preziosi carichi. Per coloro che non praticano kayak, sono disponibili svariate escursioni in barca, perlustrando calette, golfi e le isole vicino, in particolare Pianosa. Da quest’isola dai colori tropicali, è possibile intravedere le montagne Corse e a dominarla vi è il Forte Teglia, costruito da Napoleone Bonaparte come punto di vedetta.

La macchia mediterranea e gli scorci costieri di Capo Sant’Andrea sono luoghi privilegiati in cui ritrovare il giusto equilibrio. Qui il concetto di wellness non passa solo dai trattamenti disponibili ma anche da una natura con una vocazione innata al benessere interiore. Le strutture si fondono armoniosamente con l’ambiente circostante e sono spesso impreziosite da delicati ruscelli o affacci mozzafiato sulla costa. Nell’entroterra, minerali e macchia mediterranea si uniscono in un mix unico di profumi e panorami che ristorano lo spirito e il corpo. Le scogliere di Sant'Andrea offrono, inoltre, svariati spunti per ritrovare equilibrio: una passeggiata lungo questi giganti di granito lambiti dal mare cristallino o una sessione di yoga all’alba, rappresentano un saluto al sole indimenticabile.

Capo Sant’Andrea - piano di destinazione turistica

Il progetto di destination marketing “Capo Sant’Andrea” – nato da un’intuizione di Maurizio Testa, docente di marketing turistico, formatore, autore di numerosi libri di marketing e albergatore di lungo corso nel proprio boutique hotel di Capo Sant’Andrea – si compone di esperti operatori elbani affiancati da partner di comunicazione e sviluppo business internazionali. La presenza di esperti locali e originari del territorio conferisce al progetto una serie di valori aggiunti -  profonda conoscenza del territorio, spirito di appartenenza, spirito coeso tra i professionisti - assicurando alla destinazione un processo di sviluppo strategico mirato, coerente ed efficace.

The 128th Canton Fair Hosts Online Matchmaking Events to Improve Efficiency for Global Buyers and Exhibitors


GUANGZHOU, China, Oct. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The organizer of Canton Fair, China Foreign Trade Centre, together with its partners and overseas chambers of commerce, has launched several virtual business matchmaking events in France, Ukraine, Tanzania and the United Arab Emirates, in an effort to build online communication platforms to improve efficiency for global buyers and exhibitors.

The 128th Canton Fair Hosts Online Matchmaking Events to Improve Efficiency for Global Buyers and Exhibitors

The online events are part of a new program brought forward by the Canton Fair to offer both suppliers and buyers screen-to-screen opportunities to gain an in-depth understanding of each other's offerings and demands.

"The coronavirus has significantly disrupted global economic and trade activities, and consequently widened the gaps of international supply chains. The 128th Canton Fair has initiated a business matchmaking program by building an online communication platform to facilitate global buyers seeking business partnerships in China when offline trade fairs are extremely limited," said Yu Yi, Deputy Director General of Foreign Affairs Office of Canton Fair, "We aim to provide both Chinese and global companies the opportunities to engage new international markets."

The virtual conferences connected nearly 200 buyers from France, Tanzania, UAE and Ukraine, with 16 Canton Fair exhibitors which presented their products ranging from home appliances, building materials, lighting products, textiles to machines and hardware equipment.

Among featured guests attending the online event were Chen Ruhua, Counselor of the Economic and Commercial Office of the Embassy in France, Xiaoqing SU-PELLEMELE, Secretary-General of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Paris Ile-de-France, Thomas Badr Manakut, Senior Manager of the Finance Department of Bank of China Paris Branch, and Zachy Mbenna, Acting Executive Director, Tanzania Private Sector Foundation.

Many exhibitors participating in the event said that the program has opened up a channel that enables them to promote their companies and products to global buyers and reach target markets faster and more efficiently.

Alexander Sainz, a buyer from France, said the event "gathered many excellent Chinese companies which brought a variety of quality-made products." "I am very interested in many products presented at the event and looking forward to exploring more business opportunities with them at the Canton Fair in the following days", he added.

"Tanzania has a population of nearly 60 million, and there is a strong demand for agricultural machinery, textiles and other manufacturing products from China. As a member of the EAC and SADC, Tanzania has large market capacity and geographical advantages," Zachy Mbenna said.

"Canton Fair has been playing an important role in helping companies in Tanzania procure high-quality products from China. The presentations of exhibitors at this business matchmaking event were brilliant, demonstrating the unique charm of the Canton Fair. We believe that it will undoubtedly attract more Tanzanian buyers to attend the online Canton Fair in the future," he added.

The matchmaking events are an innovative attempt at this Canton Fair to help companies explore international markets and improve trading efficiency, building a fast track for suppliers and buyers to reach pragmatic trade deals.

New Build Database: Frustrated homeowner takes on the challenges of New Build Homes


CARDIFF, Wales, Oct. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Frustrated after significant snagging issues in her new build home and later identifying missing fire cavity barriers, Nichola Venables, of Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, launches new and unique DIY Snagging software, New Build Database at on Friday 23rd October.

NBDB is a national database of homeowner issues. Think of it as the Trip Advisor of Residential Construction Developers. Every issue is collated via the software. Grouped quality data is shared publicly, making comparisons straightforward and transparent.

Nichola states, "After experiencing the challenges of buying a new build home myself, I am so passionate about improving transparency, quality, and service. My key objectives are to simplify the snagging process, provide Developers with valuable insight into their key Risk and Issue Trends and to minimise the time, effort and cost to homeowners, restoring balance between homeowner and developer."

In recent years thousands of UK homeowners have been impacted by poor quality craftmanship or alleged Leasehold mis-selling, with many currently finding themselves trapped by the outcome of the Grenfell enquiry. Requiring the EWS1 form, unable to re-mortgage, move or rent their homes. For those still looking to purchase new homes, it is difficult to navigate the information available to make an informed decision.

NBDB offers a Free Snagging and Issue Logging platform, capturing Snagging, Warranty, Fire Safety, Holding and Customer Service Issues in a consistent format to support new homeowners in their initial post-sale interactions with their developer and facilitate Transparent Developer Benchmarking.

Developers will, for the first time, be able to see detailed comparisons of Issue themes against their peers in the industry, via the free benchmark, detailed dashboards and Thematic Risk and Issue Reports.

The database is all things to all people. For the homeowner, it is a free and simple issue log, report generator and management tool. For Developers, a wealth of Risk and Issue Trend data and peer comparison. For campaigners, the public benchmarks will add weight to their cause. For people looking to buy a home, they will be able to compare and make an informed decision. 

The idea for NBDB came following Nichola's Fire Safety campaign and appearance on Wales this Week and ITV News in 2019 to discuss the fire safety issues, locally and nationally.

Travellers can then experience the live sights and sounds that a Challau Robot is seeing and hearing at the Portal's physical location, and then choose to 'beam into' a robot.

A digital on-screen joystick lets travellers guide the robot's movements through their smartphone or computer with a full-screen view from the robot's main and secondary cameras. People around the robot can also see and hear the beamed in remote travellers, and using the robot's microphone and speakers, remote travellers can speak to locals should they wish.

Challau also supports physical joysticks and other game controllers that are paired with a browser (e.g. Playstation or Xbox controllers) making the experience like a real-life first-person video game. Challau robots are equipped with built-in safety technology and artificial intelligence to support the virtual travel experience.

"Countries around the world have imposed many travel restrictions and introduced strict quarantining rules. This makes it very difficult for people to travel for leisure or recreation. Tourism is one of the last remaining sectors to go fully digital - there aren't any good online alternatives for visiting places and that's what we wanted to solve with Challau", says Zain Khawaja, Founder & CEO of Propelmee.

Challau currently offers virtual travel to 7 destinations in the UK, including iconic tourist attractions such as Trafalgar Square London and historic locations in the city of Oxford. Challau aims to scale up to 21 Portal destinations in the UK and internationally at the start of the New Year.

"Compared to existing online travel options, Challau gives users complete agency to explore as they wish, in real-time. We think that it's really exciting for people to drive a robot on the other side of the world. It's the closest thing to actually being there in person", says Khawaja.

The company is extending its technology to support other types of edge devices for unique remote travel experiences in crowded bazaars or busy city centers and is also integrating augmented reality to enrich user experiences. The service is currently free to try at and does not require pre-booking.

Electrolux Q3 2020 Interim report: Strong results and cash flow on rebounding markets


STOCKHOLM, Oct. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --

The comments and figures in this report refer to continuing operations unless otherwise stated

Highlights of the third quarter of 2020

  • Net sales amounted to SEK 32,004m (30,330). Organic sales increased by 15.2%.
  • Record high operating income of SEK 3,220m (1,063), corresponding to a margin of 10.1% (3.5), mainly driven by strong volumes and prices. The comparison period included non-recurring items of SEK -290m.
  • Significant market recovery driven mainly by pent-up demand and government stimulus programs.
  • Income for the period amounted to SEK 2,356m (610) and earnings per share was SEK 8.20 (2.12).
  • Operating cash flow after investments was SEK 6,005m (2,499).
  • The Board proposes to reinstate a dividend for 2019 of SEK 7.00 (8.50) per share, to be paid in one instalment.

President and CEO Jonas Samuels! on's comment

In the third quarter Electrolux reported record earnings of SEK 3,220m, or 10.1% of net sales, driven by pent-up demand and government stimulus programs impacting consumer spending. This drove significant volume growth, and positive price and mix improvement, resulting in organic sales growth of 15.2%. The record high operating income translated into a strong operating cash flow after investments of SEK 6,005m.

The strong demand in the quarter was to a significant extent a recovery of the very low market volumes in March-May due to store closures and restrictions on movement. Demand was further enhanced by stimulus programs, more than compensating for the weaker economy caused by the pandemic. Due to pandemic restrictions during the first half of the year, we entered the quarter with unusually low inventory levels, which have remained during the quarter despite high production levels, somewhat impacting our ability to meet the strong demand across all regions. 

Sales also benefitted from consumers spending more time at home, using their appliances more intensively and allocating more of their household budgets to home improvement. This in combination with our relentless focus on consumer experience innovation has continued to improve demand for our more highly featured products, driving favorable product mix.

One great experience innovation example is the Frigidaire Gallery AirFry cooker that recently received the 2020 innovation award at the Home Depot. The AirFry cooker also delivers a significantly higher gross margin compared to traditional cookers. Innovation is truly a key pillar for creating value and that is why we will showcase how we are driving profitable growth through innovation at our online Capital Markets Update on November 17.

The Board of Directors proposed to reinstate a dividend for the fiscal year 2019 based on the recovery in earnings and cash flow. The proposed dividend of SEK 7 per share will be up for decision at an Extraordinary General Meeting on November 3. Our strong commitment to sustainability remains unchanged with the target of climate neutrality by 2050, and I am pleased that the long-term incentive program for senior managers proposed by the Board includes a substantial climate impact reduction element.

Looking into the fourth quarter, visibility remains limited as demand may be impacted by several factors, especially as the pandemic is still very much present. However, we currently anticipate that consumer demand and thus financial performance will normalize gradually going forward. Considering this and the catch-up effect during the third quarter, we are revising our market outlook for the full-year 2020 upwards. We anticipate market demand for appliances in Europe to be slightly positive, in North America to be slightly positive to positive and in Latin America to be positive. It is only the combined demand in our larger markets in the Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa region that we still expect to be negative for 2020.

I am very proud of how we as an organization successfully have navigated in these challenging times. My colleagues around the world has done a great job in executing on our strategy. That is why I am confident that Electrolux remains well positioned to create value.

About AXL

AXL kinase is a cell membrane receptor and an essential mediator of the biological mechanisms underlying life-threatening diseases. In cancer, AXL suppresses the body's immune response to tumours and drives cancer treatment failure across many indications. AXL expression defines a very poor prognosis subgroup in most cancers. AXL inhibitors, therefore, have potential high value at the centre of cancer combination therapy, addressing significant unmet medical needs and multiple high-value market opportunities. Research has also shown that AXL mediates other aggressive diseases.

About Bemcentinib

Bemcentinib (formerly known as BGB324), is a potentially first-in-class selective AXL inhibitor in a broad phase II clinical development programme. Ongoing clinical trials are investigating bemcentinib in multiple solid and haematological tumours, in combination with current and emerging therapies (including immunotherapies, targeted therapies and chemotherapy), and as a single agent. Bemcentinib targets and binds to the intracellular catalytic kinase domain of AXL receptor tyrosine kinase and inhibits its activity. Increase in AXL function has been linked to key mechanisms of drug resistance and immune escape by tumour cells, leading to aggressive metastatic cancers.

About BerGenBio ASA

BerGenBio is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing transformative drugs targeting AXL as a potential cornerstone of therapy for aggressive diseases, including immune-evasive, therapy resistant cancers. The company's proprietary lead candidate, bemcentinib, is a potentially first-in-class selective AXL inhibitor in a broad phase II clinical development programme focused on combination and single agent therapy in lung cancer, leukaemia and COVID-19. A first-in-class functional blocking anti-AXL antibody, tilvestamab, is undergoing phase I clinical testing. In parallel, BerGenBio is developing a companion diagnostic test to identify patient populations most likely to benefit from bemcentinib: this is expected to facilitate more efficient registration trials supporting a precision medicine-based commercialisation strategy. 

BerGenBio is based in Bergen, Norway with a subsidiary in Oxford, UK. The company is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange (ticker: BGBIO). For more information, visit

World Bank: China moves on battle against poverty


BEIJING, Oct. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- A report from

World Bank country director for China Martin Raiser says China’s post-pandemic economic recovery could offer a lesson for its next five-year plan. [Photo/]

China has made significant contributions in eliminating extreme poverty, and it will further improve people's livelihoods, Martin Raiser, World Bank country director for China said.

"China has made very significant efforts, to try and target all of the poor families. There have been important efforts to try, to identify them and to give them adequate support," said Raiser in an interview with China Daily on Oct 12.

According to World Bank, more than 800 million people have been lifted out of poverty in the past decades. And China has vowed to lift the last 5.51 million rural poor out of poverty by the end of this year.

But many people may face difficulties in the context of COVID-19, and China can further improve people's livelihood with a higher standard since China is an upper-middle-income country, Raiser said.

There are two ways in which the government can raise people's living standards further in China's 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25), he said.

"The first is to make sure that economic growth is inclusive. And so that means that jobs are created, and that the wages of people at the bottom of the distribution continue to increase."

"The second way in which governments can help is through better targeting assistance. A stronger social insurance system, a stronger social transfer system, one that consistently covers all of the population, not just the rural, but also the urban population, would be one of the challenges in our views for China going forward," Raiser said.
