The 2017 International Mountain Tourism and Outdoor Sports Conference to kick off in Qianxinan, Guizhou province, China

The 2017 International Mountain Tourism and Outdoor Sports Conference will kick off in Xingyi, the capital of Qianxinan prefecture, a region in the southwestern part of China’s Guizhou province, on August 15, 2017.

Olivier Balma, a French alpine guide and seasoned mountaineer who climbed several peaks across the Qianxinan region for the first time ten years ago, said, “The rock climbing environment in the prefecture is truly amazing.” At the time, he noted the locations where he had climbed on a map that was later circulated, providing references to the more than one hundred rock-climbers who subsequently came to the prefecture and climbed the terrain.

Over the past few years, outdoor sports enthusiasts have had a fantastic adventure in this “Kingdom of Mountains” that features karst limestone mountains, countless steep canyons and magnificent waterfall clusters.

Guizhou province, a mountainous region which promises thrilling and adventurous experiences to travelers from all over the world, is gaining global recognition.

This year’s conference will host a series of events, including the China Rally Championship, which will be held on the Twenty-four Turn Road, the Chinese Balloon Club League, the Sino-French International Walking Festival and an international cycling competition. A large number of alpinists, including Mr. Balma, plan to gather in Qianxinan to participate in the event.

Qianxinan prefecture is perfect for hosting mountain sporting events as it is home to the widest karst mountains around the world as well as to Wanfenglin (Forest of Ten Thousand Peaks), one of the five most magnificent peak forests in China, and Ma Linghe Canyon, referred to by many as “the world’s most beautiful scar”. In addition, fossils of the Nothosaur, an aquatic reptile that roamed the region that is now Guizhou during the Triassic period roughly 210 million years ago, are widely distributed across the prefecture.

According to the data from the Ministry of Education and Culture of Indonesia in 2017, there was a fourfold increase in the number of computer-based UN participants (UNBK) with a total of 3.7 million participants. Meanwhile, according to the Ministry of Research, Technology, and Higher Education Republic of Indonesia, computer-based test participants (CBT) SBMPTN increased tenfold from the prior year.

Of the 797,738 SBMPTN applicants who have joined the test, 148,066 participants have passed as prospective students in 85 state universities. The percentage of national SBMPTN acceptance is 14%, and it is suspected that such a low acceptance rate can be attributed to the fact that many students are still unfamiliar with the SBMPTN Computer Based Test (CBT) system.

Meanwhile, Quipper Video users who have been accustomed to learning by taking advantage of computer-based and internet-based methods show significant results, with 41% of the users pass their SMBPTN examinations. Based on survey data collected between May and June 2017 from 4,200 Quipper Video users, the average amount of learning time during which a Quipperian uses Quipper Video is 3 hours per day.

This was practiced by Angellita Buulolo, a student from SMAN 2 Tambun Selatan, BekasiWest Java. Angellita said, “I never joined additional tutoring like my friends, I just studied for the UN and SBMPTN with Quipper Video because the videos can be repeated at home and the service is very affordable. I was eventually accepted into UI’s Management department without any additional tutoring whatsoever.

Angellita is one of the many students who actively uses Quipper Video and was a respondent in the Quipper Video 2017 graduation survey. From Quipper Video’s graduation survey results, 41% of Quipperians passed the SBMPTN examination. Moreover, as many as 37% of Quipper Video users who passed their SBMPTN examination were successfully accepted into Cluster A state universities, which consist of ITB, UGM, UI, IPB, UNBRAW, ITS, UNAIR, UNHAS, UNDIP, UNPAD, Andalas, and UNS. This cluster of state universities is taken from university ranking data released by DIKTI. These universities are always favourites among students and consistently maintain their top positions.

In addition, as many as 87% of them are satisfied with learning the SBMPTN preparation materials available through Quipper Video. According to these students, preparation of material that is complete, interesting and comprehensive influences their achievements. It is proven that the quality of material prepared by Quipper Video has successfully assisted users in passing the National Examination, SNMPTN and SBMPTN, and acceptance into the best state universities in Indonesia.

Such data proves that the use of appropriate technology education services can support student learning activities, assist in exam preparation and also improve overall performance. As such, Indonesian students can develop their potential and have the confidence to compete not only at the national level, but also at the global level.

Two Short Films from Acer Honored with Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2017

Acer today announced that two of its short films have won the prestigious Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2017. The awarded films include one titled Making Dreams Possible, and another titled The Predator 21 X Design Story – Facing Challenges Head On.

“We are thrilled that two of our short films have been recognized by the Red Dot jury for excellence in communication design,” said Tiffany Huang, President of Corporate Marketing, Business Planning and Operations at Acer. “To Acer, creativity and design have always been a key component in how we tell our stories, and express what we hold dear and value as a company, whether it is our commitment to corporate social responsibility or how we approach innovation.”

Making Dreams Possible

This short film is based on the true stories of three young individuals. While they hail from different backgrounds, they share common aspirations for improving themselves and their communities. With a little bit of help from Acer, their dreams are one step closer to becoming reality. The film’s goal is to express Acer’s unwavering pledge to its corporate mission of “Breaking barriers between people and technology.” Among the many manifestations of this mission is its commitment to bridging the digital divide, and investing in people who can pay it forward and continue to make education and technology increasingly accessible. Watch the short film here.

The Predator 21 X Design Story – Facing Challenges Head On

This video was developed to share the story behind the creation of one of Acer’s most outrageous PCs, the Predator 21 X gaming notebook. Instead of video clips and interviews, Acer took a fresh approach and told the design story through animations, which resonate most with the target audience – gamers. The film consists of three sections and presents the device’s one-of-a-kind design, innovative curved screen, and powerful 5-fan cooling system. Moreover, the use of geological and meteorological motifs aimed to symbolize the revolutionary nature of the product, namely how it is reshaping the landscape of the PC industry. Watch the short film here.

Red Dot Award: Communication Design

This year, Red Dot received over 8,000 submissions from 50 countries and all projects were assessed individually by an independent and international expert jury in a process spanning several days. The Red Dot Award: Communication Design thus stands more than ever for one of the most renowned evaluation platforms for good design and creativity.

The Red Dot Award: Communication Design assesses whether an independent, high-quality design concept is recognisable, while looking into the quality and aesthetics of the implementation, the chosen medium as well as the production clarity and emotion. The functional and aesthetic aspects of the work, such as originality and recognition value also play a role.

Earlier this year, Red Dot honored seven Acer products with a Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017. They included the Predator 21 X curved screen gaming notebook as well as the Acer Switch 3 2-in-1 notebook, Spin 7 convertible notebook, Chromebook 11 N7, Chromebook Spin 11, TravelMate Spin B1 convertible notebook and H7850 4K projector.

Founded in 1976, Acer now is one of the world’s top ICT companies and has a presence in over 160 countries. As Acer looks into the future, it is focused on enabling a world where hardware, software and services will fuse with one another to open up new possibilities for consumers and businesses alike.

Trina’s PV Modules Operational in The Sustainable City in Dubai

Trina Solar’s PV modules have commenced operations in the 10MW Sustainable City in Dubai, an innovative project that serves as living proof that developing a community where energy needs are to be met entirely through clean energy sources is possible. With several facilities, including 500 residential villas, 170-room hotel, mosque, school, swimming pool and an equestrian club and track, the proposed residential and commercial complex is tagged as one of the largest sustainable cities in operation to date in Middle East.

Given the harsh environmental conditions in Middle East, the installation will be made up of 40,000 Duomax panels – a solution which has long been renowned for its durability and reliability. Duomax panels feature a first-of-type frameless design, ensuring no dust accumulation and requires minimum amount of cleaning thereby adhering to the city’s sustainable and environment friendly design standards. The dual glass design of Duomax secures the project design life of 30 years backed with Trina’s performance warranty.

Built by Diamond Developers, one of the first companies in Dubai to enter the freehold property and real estate development industry since the introduction of freehold property ownership in 2002, the Sustainable City is billed as Middle East’s first operational sustainable community, built on a 5-million square foot complex located 18 miles from Dubai City and expected to host a population of around 2000. With several large scale installations to its name, Trina Solar was the developer’s choice for a 40,000-panel solar array, estimated to produce around 16GWh per annum.

Trina Solar is incredibly proud to have been the major contributor to this community’s energy needs” said MsHelena Li, President, Asia Pacific & Middle East. “Solar power is expected to be a significant contributor to Dubai’s ambitions to become the world’s most sustainable city by 2020. As a result, the government has looked towards smarter living initiatives, particularly in a desert environment, and we are delighted to have supported them in achieving their clean energy vision through our innovative solar products. The Sustainable City is a ground-breaking initiative in ensuring that the city’s growth and development continues responsibly. With Trina Solar’s supply, a significant portion of the residents’ energy needs are being met for a cleaner, lower cost, and more sustainable future.”

Anwar Zabin, CEO of City Solar, commented: “The completion of phase 1 is a momentous milestone in our work within The Sustainable City with the installation of 24,170 solar panels so far. Our work continues and we look forward to embarking on phase two, which will see the installation of further 15,000 solar panels. We are building up to our total goal of 40,000 solar panels, which will eventually produce up to 10 MW of power at maximum capacity. The energy produced per year will be equivalent to 16,000 MW contributing to the reduction of carbon emissions by 8,000 tonnes per year.

New business surge leads to double-digit embedded value growth in Asia

Milliman, Inc., a premier global consulting and actuarial firm, today announced the findings of its study on reported year-end 2016 embedded value (EV) results for 34 major insurance companies operating in Asia, excluding Japan. The report highlights trends among companies reporting EVs and reveals a growth in reported 2016 EV of 15.3% by Asian insurance companies. This was primarily driven by a 40% growth over 2015 in Value of New Business (VNB) across the region in 2016.

The Milliman 2016 Embedded Value Results: Asia (excl. Japan) report analyses and discusses the EV methodologies and assumptions, the impact of regulations, as well as recent developments with the long-awaited IFRS 17 reporting regime.

“The China and Hong Kong markets were the main drivers of the VNB explosion in the region; both having mainland consumers to thank for these results,” said Milliman principal and consulting actuary Paul Sinnott. “Although we have some longer term concerns about the sustainability of profit margins in the region, recent yield curve rises are relieving some margin pressure in the short term.”

A few key insights from the Asian report include:

  • In 2016, total reported Asian EV grew by 15.3%, on a comparable basis, to USD 339 billion from USD 294 billion.
  • While some European multinationals reduced their Asian EV reporting last year, there were three companies disclosing EV results for the first time in India, along with the first comprehensive IEV disclosure associated with ICICI Prudential’s IPO in September 2016.
  • Life insurance sales continued to rise strongly in the region during 2016, with gross written premium (GWP) estimated to have increased by 28%, with China’s 43% growth being a major contributor.
  • VIF increased for all markets. South Korea recorded the largest VIF growth of 31%, mainly from margin-driven growth in VNB across all companies; Hong Kong also posted strong VIF growth of 20%, driven by large volumes of business sold to mainland Chinese visitors.

A copy of the report detailing these and other pertinent trends is available for download on http://www.milliman.com/ev-research. For more details, please contact:

The Great Hall of China: double digit growth at CPhI China

CPhI and P-MEC China, organised by UBM EMEA, UBM Sinoexpo and China Chamber of Commerce for Import & Export of Medicines & Health Products (CCCMHPIE), closed in June 2017 with a very successful show, reporting positive outlook for further Chinese pharmaceutical market development. Since 2016 CPhI China has experienced a 14% growth in overall visits and a 12% growth in overseas visits — a remarkable achievement for a mature market with 17 pervious editions behind it.

The event, featuring 2,800+ exhibiting companies covering the entire supply chain, acts as an accurate barometer of the industry’s overall growth patterns and future developments. Two major trends to emerge from Asia’s largest pharma event were the increased interest and promotion of “intelligent manufacturing” systems as well as ‘green manufacturing’ approaches. The former emphasised a rapid shift within China’s industry towards advanced facilities and product classes. However, the latter is a particularly notable change in light of the country’s general reputation, and the first ever “China Pharma Environmental Forum” was an integral feature of this year’s exhibition.

Another major development in 2017 was the introduction of the first edition of the CPhI China Pharma Week, which was a direct response to China’s increased internationalisation. Across the entire week, CPhI and P-MEC China attendees had the opportunity to experience richer content than in any other previous edition. To mention a few: Plant visits in leading R&D and innovation companies, CPhI China River Cruise Networking dinner on Huangpu River that held over 250 overseas and domestic attendees, the CPhI Pharma Business International Program to help overseas companies solve problems they encounter when entering the Chinese market and many more.

As part of the CPhI China Pharma week, the show saw the launch of the Bluebook on Internationalization of China’s Pharmaceutical Industry — listing the largest Chinese companies operating internationally — and “The 2017 Awards for Top 100 Internationalized Pharmaceutical Companies in China“. Both influential regional lists that review and document the country’s most prominent companies.

Finally, 2017 saw the arrival of another global trend sweeping through pharma with the first ever CPhI Women in Leadership Forum in China, which featured high level debates on how to advance female executive potential contributing to the fast development of Pharmaceutical industry in the country.

In total, 55,020 visits were recorded over the three-day Shanghai event, with 10,126 visits from international attendees, including representatives from more than 120 different countries, covering an enormous 165,000m2 of exhibition space at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, which makes it the biggest edition of CPhI and P-MEC China to date.

Rutger Oudejans, Brand Director Pharma at UBM added, “CPhI China has grown to be the single most influential meeting point for pharma suppliers and customers, and this year we observed a record number of international attendees and over 55,000 visits in total. The pharma economy has diversified rapidly in the last few years and new markets are emerging in bio and final dosage forms. In addition to the ingredients sector — which represents some 40% of global production. This year’s event was especially significant as we increased the range of insights and analysis across the changing business and regulatory environment. With sessions held on everything from the MAH pilot to formulation development strategies and international distribution. Next year we expect even stronger growth as domestic pharma economy cements its number 2 status and exports of new forms grow exponentially.”

CPhI and P-MEC China will return with its 18 edition again in 2018. The event will be held from 20 – 22 June 2018 in Shanghai New International Expo Centre, alongside the 2nd CPhI China Pharma Week edition.

UBM India is doing a wonderful job in the sector, and as President of IPA, I would say that while choosing Hyderabad as the venue is really justified, it would be great to approach other hubs in India that are rising as well. They too need all the exposure and support that a platform of this stature affords.”

Mr. Gopal Malawade, Branch Head- Kirloskar Pneumatic Co. Ltd. said, We are delighted to be a part of PharmaLytica 2017.

Acorn International Sells Majority Stake in HJX Business

Acorn International, Inc. (NYSE: ATV) (“Acorn” or the “Company”) today announced that the Company recently reached an agreement to sell a majority stake in its HJX business to a third-party investor and operator. Specifically, the agreement includes the establishment of a joint venture that will be controlled and operated by such third party. Acorn’s HJX business engages in direct sales of Ozing branded electronic learning devices incorporating mobile internet interactive features, such as online tutoring services. The partial divestiture of this business unit represents an exit of day-to-day management by Acorn from this business, allowing Acorn to focus on its already profitable businesses and brands, as well as on achieving profitable growth of new businesses within the Group.

Under the terms of the agreement, the joint venture will help liquidate a large stock of HJX inventory, transition certain expenses on a pro rata basis to the joint venture and allow Acorn to divest day-to-day operational management to the third-party team. The joint venture is expected to be operational in the coming months.

Commenting on the joint venture, Jacob Fisch, President of Acorn said, “This is a great step forward for Acorn and a very solid deal for the company within the context of the overall market environment for electronic learning products. Despite the history and continuing strength of the Ozing brand in China, this business has struggled over the last few years due in large part to an ongoing secular decline of the specialized educational tablet market, as well as an inability to innovate fast enough around new software development. After exploring alternative strategic solutions over the last year, including efforts to turn the business around with internal resources, it became clear that this transaction was the best option for the business at this point in time.

“This joint venture marks one of our final key steps in turning around and restructuring the business away from loss-making legacy businesses to focus more closely on our brands and business areas that support our mandate for profitable growth,” Mr. Fisch concluded.

Executive Chairman Robert Roche agreed, “The agreement with HJX represents a positive move for Acorn as we realign our strategy and focus our attention on businesses that will drive profitable growth.”

About Acorn International, Inc.

Co-founded in 1998 by Executive Chairman Robert Roche, Acorn is a marketing and branding company in China with a proven track record of developing, promoting and selling a diverse portfolio of proprietary-branded products, as well as well-established and promising new products from third parties.

Addvalue and Inmarsat Sign Agreement to Launch Inter-satellite Data Relay Service, a World’s First Commercial On-demand Communications Service to Support LEO Satellite Operations

Singapore’s Main Board listed company, Addvalue Technologies Ltd and its subsidiaries (“Addvalue”), have formalized a worldwide agreement with UK-listed Inmarsat plc (“Inmarsat”), the leading provider of global mobile satellite communications, to jointly offer the world’s first commercial on-demand communications service specifically designed to address certain elements of the rapidly expanding Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite market. The service, termed Inter-Satellite Data Relay Service (“IDRS”), will enhance and improve the operational efficiency of LEO satellite operations globally. As an example, this service could be of particular interest to operators of scientific, weather forecasting, earth observation and imaging missions. The Inmarsat and Addvalue IDRS service agreement is a follow-through of the signed Memorandum of Understanding announced by Addvalue on 2 February 2017.

Up until the introduction of IDRS, communications with LEO satellites has only been available when the satellite is within line-of-sight of an earth station. This limited connectivity is available to a rigid time schedule based on the particular LEO satellite’s orbit and the geographic location of the earth station. With IDRS LEO satellite operators will be able to have on-demand 24/7, near real-time two-way IP-based communications links to all of their satellites. IDRS will allow LEO constellation operators to rapidly respond to customer requirements and to operational anomalies in their fleet. IDRS will be based on Addvalue’s space-tested IDRS terminal and Inmarsat’s established Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (“GEO”) I-4 satellite-based Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) network. Addvalue expects that the IDRS service will have a significant impact on the operational efficiency and profitability of LEO satellite constellations.

This Master Service Agreement will make IDRS available to carefully targeted commercial LEO customers globally. Addvalue and Inmarsat will work together to take the IDRS service to market, with Addvalue providing the IDRS flight hardware to be carried on board the LEO satellites and serving as the distributor of IDRS airtime to LEO satellite operators.

Commenting on the Master Service AgreementDr Colin Chan, Chairman and CEO of Addvalueremarked that: We are delighted that our years of hard work have resulted in our partnering with Inmarsat to offer this communications service. Catering to the fast growing LEO satellite market is an exciting business opportunity for us. Furthermore, this will enable us to extend our marketing to include IDRS airtime that has great upside potential for Addvalue. Inking this agreement will enable us to move forward commercial discussions with our customers.

About Addvalue Technologies Ltd.  (www.addvaluetech.com)

Addvalue Technologies Ltd (A31) a SGX Mainboard-listed company, is a leading one-stop digital, wireless and broadband communications technology products innovator, which provides state-of-the-art satellite-based communication terminals and solutions for a variety of voice and IP based data applications.

Addvalue is presently a leading global developer and supplier of mobile satellite terminals supporting coverage provided by premier mobile satellite communication system operators. These terminals are an ideal choice for communications in areas around the world where terrestrial networks are non-existent, or ineffective. This is particularly so for maritime communications, which rely almost entirely on satellite communications, where Addvalue’s marine communications terminals are well suited.

About Inmarsat (www.inmarsat.com)

Inmarsat plc is the leading provider of global mobile satellite communications services. Since 1979, Inmarsat has been providing reliable voice and high-speed data communications to governments, enterprises and other organizations, with a range of services that can be used on land, at sea or in the air. Inmarsat operates in more than 60 locations around the world, with a presence in the major ports and centres of commerce on every continent. Inmarsat is listed on the London Stock Exchange (ISAT.L). For more information, please visit www.inmarsat.com

About  IDRS

The Addvalue developed IDRS terminal is an innovative key device that allows Addvalue to address a long-standing constraint on LEO satellite operations. Its unique value is it enables the provision of on-demand, low latency, 24/7 full duplex data services to support of commercial LEO satellite operations.  Presently LEO satellite operators have only brief and intermittent data service opportunities that must be rigidly scheduled around the flight path of their LEO satellites.  With Addvalue’s IDRS this restriction is eliminated, thereby simplifying the task of managing LEO satellite operations. Further, on-demand aspect of the IDRS service will enhance the efficiency of LEO satellite operations.  This is especially a boon to the operators of large LEO satellite fleets.
