Supervisory Committees for The National Center for Privatization & PPP (NCP) Established: Best Practices Blueprint for Saudi Privatization Initiative First Objective

The National Center for Privatization & PPP (NCP), the newly formed agency created to empower Saudi Arabia’s private sector, alongside the Supervisory Committees (SCs) established to manage each privatization sector, today set out the blueprint to ensure the efficient and strategic transfer of the Kingdom’s government assets to the private sector.

The Council of Ministers announced the establishment of the SCs yesterday, and these were given a definitive mandate to function as executive facilitators for multiple sectors which are to be privatized over the next 10 years.

The sectors included in the Vision 2030 under the Privatization Program are: Environment, Water and Agriculture; Transport; Energy, Industry & Mineral Resources; Labor & Social Development; Housing; Education; Health; Municipalities, Telecommunication and Information Technology and Hajj & Umrah sectors.

The role of each committee is to assess the technical, financial, legal and regulatory landscape and to establish a best practice blueprint for the privatization of the targeted entities. The Ministry of Finance, a permanent member in all the SCs, will also play a crucial role in the privatization process.

NCP will serve as a permanent member of all SCs, providing strategic guidance and support as the committees move to enhance Saudi Arabia’s economy by recruiting private sector participation through asset privatization and the formation of new public-private partnerships.

It is anticipated that the privatization process will increase the private sector’s contribution to national GDP from 40 to 65 percent.

NCP and the SCs are the first entities of their kind in the MENA region. They have been established to meet the core objectives of the privatization effort: improving the efficiency and competitiveness of the national economy, thereby boosting the quality of life for the Saudi people through stimulation of the private sector, improving the overall business environment, increasing job opportunities for Saudi nationals, reinvigorating the Kingdom’s rich mineral resources sector, developing renewable energy capacity, investing in workforce and education development and diversifying the economy.

The first step in this process is to establish a world-class center of excellence to facilitate and regulate the sale of state assets and entities.

“NCP has adopted a wide-ranging governance policy that will enable government agencies and hold each accountable as we move forward with stimulating private investment and privatization,” said Turki A. Al Hokail, CEO of the NCP.

NCP will formulate regulations, create privatization frameworks and prepare robust processes that will serve as a blueprint for agencies and entities to follow that will ensure the efficient sale of Saudi assets and to drive the privatization process forward.

“We will facilitate the smooth transfer of assets by publishing a blueprint that will deepen communication channels between government agencies, citizens and the private sector locally, regionally & internationally and serve to guide investors and participating agencies and entities through the privatization process.

“NCP was established with the purpose of setting policies, strategies, programs, bylaws, plans and tools to achieve the privatization projects objectives, thus suggesting the sectors and activities that may be privatized. The center will also set necessary standards and frameworks for sectors targeted for privatization, set principles which help the management of privatization-related projects, develop requirements to establish entities where the private sector – from inside and outside the Kingdom – may participate with government entities in the launched privatization projects.

“NCP will work with the sectors targeted for privatization to ensure their technical and financial readiness. The Center will work to assess the readiness of the macro economy of the privatization programs and contribute to managing related risks. It will work with its counterparts to identify key performance indicators related to privatization. In addition, NCP will be contributing to the training and qualification of human capital in the field of privatization to guarantee leveraging their abilities and expertise to achieve development objectives.

“Effective governance means integrating a continuous evolution of improvement to keep pace with the rising accountability and transparency expected of government. NCP will serve as an agile, performance-oriented public organization that will boost performance and increase investment opportunity in the Kingdom.”

About the National Center for Privatization & PPP (NCP)

NCP was established through the Council of Ministers Resolution on April 3, 2017 and is responsible for executing the privatization of certain government entities, a priority identified as part of the Saudi Vision 2030. NCP’s mission is to enable privatization by providing assistance in formulating regulations, creating privatization frameworks and for preparing government entities that are identified for privatization to ensure quality outcomes. The NCP team includes expertise in the areas of legal, financial, advisory, strategy, risk, marketing and human resources as well as experts in the full spectrum of Public Private Partnerships. NCP is developing the privatization pipeline which includes proposing sectors, government functions and organizations that could either be privatized or improved through a public private partnership or private investment. In addition, NCP is also responsible for developing an efficient privatization process that targeted entities will follow to solicit and engage private sector participation and for promoting those opportunities internationally.

Enterprise 3D Printing Strengthens Position in Aerospace and Looks Set to Expand into Other Industries Over Next Ten Years

In a recent B2B technology survey, ABI Research finds that 44% of manufacturing companies currently have 3D printers in operation, however, most of these deployments are for prototyping purposes only. This is set to change over the next ten years as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approve more 3D-printed parts for use in commercial jet engines, and additive manufacturing (AM) specialists continue to innovate for production scale implementation in other industries.

Logo – http://mma.prnewswire.com/media/276887/abi_research_logo.jpg

“Aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), hospitals, dentists, and their suppliers already benefit from practical 3D Printing use cases,” says Pierce Owen, Principal Analyst at ABI Research. “Now, innovation from both established and new entry specialists will create more use cases in more industries on a scale not seen before. Even if AM does not make sense for mass production, distributed manufacturing platforms that provide access to 3D printers close to end users, will empower almost all manufacturers to explore using AM for replacement parts on-demand.”

The U.S. aerospace and defense industries will make up a large chunk of AM growth over the next ten years, producing additive manufactured parts and products with a value of US$17.8 billion in 2026, due to the sheer size of the American aerospace industry and its defense budget. GE Additive and GE Aviation already 3D print fuel nozzles for the LEAP jet engines designed for the commercial aircraft of Airbus, Boeing and the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (Comac).

Beyond aerospace, Stratasys’s PolyJet modelling has proven particularly effective in producing anatomical models for surgical planning. Because PolyJet modelling can use multiple materials and colors, it can produce customized models with bones of the correct density and tissues with accurate vascular structures. Also, adoption will pick up in footwear, where Adidas will use Carbon’s AM systems for mid-soles in thousands of shoes and Nike will use HP’s for spikes on track and football cleats.

“While certain industries have already embraced 3D Printing technology, to have widespread appeal, other sectors will have to redesign both products and supply chains with the help of AM engineering consultants and front-line workers, and AM specialists will have to build machines that work faster and cheaper,” concludes Owen.

These findings are from ABI Research’s Enterprise 3D Printing and Distributed Manufacturing report. This report is part of the company’s Industrial Internet research service, which includes research, data, and analyst insights.

BasalogOne™: New Diabetes Solution From Abdi İbrahim Pharmaceuticals & Biocon Limited

Leader of the Turkish pharmaceutical industry Abdi İbrahim, which has established Abdi İbrahim Remede Pharma (AİRP) in Algeria, continues its activities in the region at full speed. Having put into effect the most up-to-date plant investment in the country, Abdi İbrahim collaborated with Biocon, the leading biopharmaceutical company of the region, to launch the first biosimilar product in Algeria, an insulin market worth 300 million-USD. BasalogOne™ is a type of basal insulin which provides an efficacious and safe control of the blood sugar level for a period of 24 hours with no salient peaks. The product is administered once daily subcutaneously to adult patients with type 2 diabetes needing long-acting insulin for hyperglycemia control, adults with Type 1 diabetes, and 6+ pediatric patients.

Pursuing the goal to rank among the top 10 pharmaceutical companies of Algeria in 2020, Abdi İbrahim kicked off the marketing and sales of the new biosimilar product BasalogOne™ upon collaboration with Biocon. BasalogOne™, which is administered subcutaneously and maintains its efficacy for a full day, helps control insulin levels without any peaks in the blood sugar level. The product is available for children older than 6, and adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Abdi İbrahim Remede Pharma (AİRP) held product launch meetings in 3 metropolitan cities of Algeria; namely, Constantine, Oran and Algiers. Present during the event were 100 physicians who were updated about the Algerian diabetes market and BasalogOne™.

In Algeria, the number of diabetes patients reaches 3 million approximately. In 2016, the cost of diabetes products alone surpassed 400 million USD300 million USD of which is insulin products used in the treatment of 600.000 patients.

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic disease that develops in case the pancreas fails to secrete adequate levels of insulin hormone in the body or is unable to use the insulin hormone effectively. The insulin hormone is necessary to transfer sugar from the blood to the cells to be transformed into energy in the body. The global prevalence of diabetes is 415 million patients based on 2015 data. In 2040, this is expected to reach 642 million people. The budget spent for diabetes treatment is 670 billion USD today, while in 2040, it is expected to exceed 800 billion USD.

Adobe Partners with Ministry of Tourism, Republic of Indonesia, to Meet Growing Visitor Demand

Ministry of Tourism (MoT), Republic of Indonesia, has partnered with Adobe to elevate the country’s tourism industry and deliver exceptional experiences for visitors. By leveraging Adobe Experience Cloud, the ministry aims to broaden its reach, connect with travelers better, and improve its competitiveness in the region. Adobe Experience Cloud is the leading platform for digital marketing and will help the ministry achieve key objectives that will further raise Indonesia’s profile as a destination of choice.

The partnership rides on the rising tide of Indonesian tourism, and MoT aims to capitalize on this growth. In 2016, the country registered 12 million foreign tourist arrivals — a 15.5 percent increase from the year before[1]. This year, the ministry expects 15 million foreign visitors and projects 20 million by 2019[2].

Indonesia is a wonderful destination with so much to offer. We are known for our magnificent islands, pristine beaches and traditional cultures, yet there is so much more to be discovered. It is important for us to reinvent the way we tell our stories, and continually promote new destinations and activities to our audiences coming from all parts of the world, and Adobe has shown us just how that can be done. The partnership with Adobe will help us connect with our visitors more effectively, better understand their preferences, and be able to customize the experience for them accordingly,” said Mr. Arief Yahya, Minister of Tourism, Republic of Indonesia.

In line with the ministry’s “Go Digital” theme for 2017, Adobe’s cloud platform will help drive its digital transformation strategy and connect with today’s digital-savvy travelers. One of the critical tools that will help ensure success is Livefyre, part of Adobe Experience Manager. Livefyre will allow the ministry to tap into the power of user-generated content, with the ability to sieve through billions of social posts created by tourists every day, for a constant fresh flow of authentic tourist experiences to share with global audiences. In parallel, Adobe Analytics will provide in-depth analysis of web traffic and visitors to offer insights for targeting and attracting new visitors.

Another strategic initiative is to strengthen the ministry’s network and reach by establishing an alliance with major airlines. By partnering with Adobe, not only does the ministry gain access to Adobe’s network of airline partners, it also puts itself on the common Adobe Experience Cloud platform that will better facilitate future exchanges of customer segment data between the alliance members. Adobe Audience Manager, on the other hand, will also help identify valuable customer segments to create targeted tourism campaigns. In the first year of the partnership, the ministry aims to sign on 10 airlines partners, including Garuda Indonesia, and Air Asia for a start.

“Travelers now expect much more from the destinations they visit. Thanks to the power of the Internet and social media, consumers are empowered with more information than ever before, and with that, an appetite for more personalized experiences. Today, digital experiences are as important as physical ones, and it’s imperative to make sure it is seamless across all touchpoints. The tourism industry must evolve by offering fresh, targeted content to a wider segmentation of audience, in shorter turnaround times, and Adobe is excited to be working with the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism in this landmark effort to ensure every tourist visiting Indonesia gets the best possible experience,” said Tony Katsabaris, APAC Managing Director of Public Sector for Adobe.

This expansion of the program has contributed to a 21 percent compound annual growth rate of the CMA candidate pipeline over the last five years. Additionally, IMA’s total membership increased by 11 percent, bringing it to the 90,000 mark, and putting the organization on track to reach 100,000 members by its 100th anniversary in 2019.

According to Thomson, IMA’s continued focus on growing with confidence and integrity, and a strong balance sheet grounded in financial discipline enabled it to invest in the multi-million-dollar ‘You’ve Got to Earn It’ ad campaign. The integrated campaign resulted in 26,000 new leads for the CMA program.

Johnson & Johnson, a multinational medical devices, pharmaceutical and consumer packaged goods manufacturer, was presented with this year’s ICMA Board of Regents Corporate Recognition Award. This award recognizes an organization’s long-standing support and encouragement of the CMA program for their finance staff.

“At Johnson & Johnson, we have a very well-defined approach to developing great business leaders with financial expertise that includes building capabilities through multiple essential business experiences. Certification is an important part of that approach,” said Ronald A, Kapusta, CMA, CFM, Corporate Controller and Chief Accounting Officer, Johnson & Johnson. “The CMA is a great way to develop and enhance accounting and finance knowledge including both technical and decision support skills, prepare associates for greater on-the-job responsibility and advancement potential, demonstrate commitment to personal development and ultimately help build professional credibility and trust.”

French Multinational Bank Appoints AxiomSL for HKMA and MAS Regulatory Reporting Solutions

AxiomSL, the global leader in regulatory reporting, data and risk management solutions has been appointed by the Asia-Pacific(APAC) headquarters of a leading French multinational bank to implement its enterprise data management platform. AxiomSL’s platform will integrate and enrich the bank’s existing data architecture to comply with Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) mandate MA (BS) 1 and Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) mandate 610. Earlier this year, AxiomSL was appointed by the French bank in New York for regulatory reporting to the Federal Reserve. This will be the third major French bank that has chosen AxiomSL as its preferred regulatory solutions provider globally.

AxiomSL’s data agnostic enterprise data management platform empowers global financial institutions to tackle complex, mission-critical data integration, risk management and regulatory reporting challenges. The enterprise-wide approach enables firms to shift their focus from tactical level compliance to macro-level supervision. This will result in meaningful business insights that will facilitate senior management in making decisions that translates into commercial value and operational efficiencies.

Peter Tierney, APAC CEO, AxiomSL said, “We are delighted to be expanding our relationship as the banks’ preferred strategic enterprise data management partner. With cost cutting measures in place and firms coming under intense scrutiny by the regulators, there is an urgent need to rethink how regulatory reporting is conducted. Firms need to shift their regulatory reporting focus from a short term, tactical and compliance-date driven approach to a macro approach that looks at regulatory data management as a strategic function. In addition to regular reporting submissions to the regulator, firms must anticipate the supervisory questions and clarifications these submissions will inevitably generate. A flexible and modular regulatory data management solution is required that enables firms to meet shifting local and global regulatory and supervisory needs. As this new client has discovered, AxiomSL’s data agnostic platform provides just this. We have seen positive growth in APAC and our recent senior appointments ensure that we continue to bring deep industry expertise to deliver the best regulatory solutions to our clients.”

In order to service the expanding client base and support its growing footprint across APAC, AxiomSL announced two senior leadership appointments earlier this year: APAC CEO Peter Tierney and Country Manager for Australia Andrew Wood. AxiomSL established its APAC presence in 2010 and expanded its operations across Hong KongSingapore and Sydney. The platform has since been used by global systemically important banks (G-SIBs) in the region to comply with main regulatory requirements such as FATCA, CRS, IFRS 9, regional liquidity coverage ratio, shareholding disclosure and central bank reporting.

Graded as a Grade II historic building by Hong Kong Antiquities Advisory Board in 2010, the 115-year-old colonial architecture had been transformed successfully from the Old Tai O Police Station to a nine-room heritage boutique hotel surrounded by lush greenery.

Tai O Heritage Hotel has received more than a million visitors and guests since it opened its door five years ago. By conserving the building of the Old Tai O Police Station and participating more than 100 community events, the Hotel not only strives to preserve the unique fishing village scenes and livelihood, but also works with the local community to turn Tai O into a popular ecotourism destination. Tai O Heritage Hotel has gradually become one key member of the Tai O community, providing employment opportunities for Tai O and Lantau residents. To mark its 5th anniversary, the Hotel is organizing a series of celebration programmes for Hong Kong citizens and tourists from overseas, through which the Hotel hopes to encourage continued support for heritage conservation and revitalization of Tai O.

The Hotel has won the Award of Merit at UNESCO 2013 Asia-Pacific Cultural Heritage Awards and has been voted as ‘Asia’s Leading Heritage Hotel 2016′ in World Travel Awards™.

There’s A New Entrant To The Luxury Skincare Market In Singapore: New Zealand Secret

Singapore is synonymous to shopping, and will now be supplied with a new luxury, natural skin care range from one of the greenest places on Earth — New Zealand. This high-end range is called New Zealand Secret.

The vision of 33 year old Mona Masouminia, New Zealand Secret is designed to assist your skin long term. A former oil and mining engineer, Mona realised the idea when she attended a beauty show in Paris in 2015. It was there that she saw New Zealand products on display and thought they were not making the most out of the country’s reputation for untouched nature.

“I had played with making my own make up to keep my skin fresh when I was out in the field on international contracts,” she said. “I put the two ideas together and talked to Norm Morgan, of Tradex International. He introduced me to the late Dr Jim Watson, a pioneer of New Zealand’s biotechnology industry. They easily convinced me that anything I did should be 100% scientific, 100% natural and traceable. I met a specialist contract manufacturer with all the right plant accreditations … and our unique formulae for creams and serums were created.”

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the natural world, she has created a range of anti-aging products with ingredients that have been sustainably harvested. Active ingredients such as wakame, kiwifruit extract and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the beneficial additions.

These ingredients collectively fight the effects of pollution, stress and age, making skin firmer and more youthful. Two of the crowd favourites are New Zealand Secret Eye Cream and New Zealand Secret Regenerating Collagen Serum.

The range of anti-aging products also include a cleansing cream, an anti-aging toner and hydrating day and night moisturisers. Mona said, “After working with the formulae during the past 18 months, we can now say that we have a 100% natural range for anti-aging products that is going to compete strongly against some of the world’s biggest luxury brands in this field.”

New Zealand Secret is entering the market alongside other luxury brands such as La Mer, Guerlain and La Prairie. The New Zealand Secret product range is available online for worldwide shipping at newzealandsecret.com.

For further information, please contact Mr Michael Fan in Singapore on +65 8112 6999.

SANY Concrete Machinery Helps Build the New Landmark in Southeast Asia

Landmark 81, the 81-storey skyscraper under construction in Ho Chi Minh City, will become the tallest building in Vietnam upon completion. Until now, 11 concrete machinery from SANY have been used in the project.

The total height of the building will reach 461m, 110m higher than Vietnam’s supertall building Keangnam Landmark 72 in Hanoi. The mixed-use tower will include high-end apartments, hotels, shopping centers, restaurants, bars and a 360-degree observatory center. Recently, 49 stories have been built.

During the tower construction, all the concrete work of the mat and main building are carried out by SANY machines. 5 SANY HBT12020C trailer pumps, 1 HBT9035CH super high pressure trailer pump and 3 HGR28 placing booms have worked around the clock to support the on-time completion of the project. As the construction proceeds, another two super high pressure trailer pumps have been ordered by the customer for the concrete pouring from 200-meter tall to the top floor.

To guarantee the smooth operation of the machines, SANY has sent two service engineers to provide on-site customer service. With the superb quality and comprehensive maintenance by the service staff, until now, SANY concrete machinery has proved exceptional performance without any failure reported.

“We know SANY equipment very well since we already used it during the construction of the Burj Khalifa Tower and Shanghai World Financial Tower. SANY is a world-class concrete machinery expert,” the Landmark 81 project director and associate director said. The high working efficiency, one-story concrete pouring per three days, stability and after-sale service again have won their recognition this time.

Since 2007, SANY has proactively participated in various major projects in Asia-Pacific region, for instance the Vinh Tan power station in Vietnam, Wheatstone LNG project in Australia and ChinaLaosrailway. Following the Belt and Road Initiative, SANY will make continuous efforts to provide reliable machines and value-adding after-sale service to the customers.
