Speakers and participants from all over the world will have the chance to engage on this unique cross-sector platform.

 

This year’s Social Enterprise Summit (SES) has chosen the theme “new normal · collective power”. Everyone in our society will require some shifts to come out of the current situations during a year of pandemic, the Summit will identify ways for generating new social power by bringing different sectors together more closely. This is the first time that an online format has been used for the Summit, enabling social entrepreneurs from many different countries to interact without geographic limitations. “History will mark 2020 as one of the most disruptive years ever, a year of survival and change,” said Rebecca CHOY YUNG, Chair of the SES Organising Committee. “Social issues have never been as complex as they are now, and this calls for new ways of thinking. We need to be innovative and use our collective power to tackle and solve the entrenched social issues in this era of the ‘new normal’.”

 

The Summit began at 10:00am with a keynote address by Mr Jeremy HEIMANS (US) and Mr Henry TIMMS (US), Co-Authors of New Power. According to these speakers, “New power is the ability to harness the energy of the connected crowd; it is the deployment of mass participation and peer coordination to create change, shift outcomes and achieve the best result.” Mr TIMMS shared the example of a global philanthropic movement #GivingTuesday that engages people in close to 100 countries and which has generated over US$1 billion for good causes.

 

Followed by a Policy Dialogue at 11:00am, where The Honourable Bernard Charnwut CHAN, Convenor of the Non-Official Members, Executive Council of Hong Kong SAR Government; Dr Chi-kwong LAW, Secretary for Labour and Welfare Bureau of Hong Kong SAR Government, and other speakers talked about social innovation and social finance, policies and how the civil society, business, policymakers and academia are developing a shared value city.

 

At 2:30pm, Mr Francis NGAI (HK), Founder and CEO of Social Ventures Hong Kong, will host the Thematic Session “Overcoming Challenges 2.0: Rebuilding City Resilience”, a multi-perspective discussion on rebuilding resilience in our city and suggesting ways to face different challenges. The panellists will include Mr David YEUNG (HK), Founder and CEO of Green Monday; Dr LAU Ming-Wai (HK), Founder and Director of MWYO and Chairman of Chinese Estates Holdings Limited, and Ms Vicky FUNG (HK), Co-founder of Every Life Is A Song.

Four discussion tracks will take place on 20 November. The first track is “Community Empowerment”; it will explore ways of unleashing the latent power in our communities to transform the pressures of recent times into positive power; to change and to embrace the “new normal”. The second track is “Digital Social Innovation”, it will explore how open data, citizen science and shifts in work practices can be used to drive informed and productive changes in our personal, professional, and social journeys along the digital social innovation highway. The “Sustainability and Business” track will consider sustainability strategies, practices and business models that prioritize sustainability and lay the foundations for a more resilient and sustainable business ecosystem of shared values. Finally, the “Education Innovation” track will explore various innovative education initiatives such as adopting a skills-based approach in social entrepreneurship education, building an education transformation movement to change traditional practices in schools, as well as using behavioural science as a tool for developing a better society.

 

The last day of this year’s symposium will be on 21 November, featuring the Asia Youth Entrepreneurship Exchange and a social innovation workshop. Titled “Yesterday’s Heritage; Today’s Transformation; Tomorrow’s DYNAMIC INNOVATION”, the concluding session will take the form of a specially curated narrative involving guest speakers from across generations and social sectors, who will share their insights into “The New Normal To Be”.

HKGSEO Provides Free Website SEO Analysis and Consulting Services

gbafNews28

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 5 January 2021 – The COVID-19 epidemic has lasted for nearly a year. The sharp fall in the street traffic has been affecting core shopping districts everywhere. In addition, under the “Anti-epidemic Fund”, the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) launched the ” Distance Business (D-Biz) Programme subsidy. Increasing number of large and medium-sized enterprises have turned to the online market, setting up websites and opening online shops, in an effort to open up online sales channels to recover some of their businesses during the epidemic.

 

As many companies are not familiar with website technology, website optimization and SEO promotion are often ignored. In fact, SEO is one of the highest ROI of many online marketing channels and it is worthy of a long-term investment.

 

HKGSEO has performed SEO for more than 500 enterprises, with the SEO process bringing considerable traffic and sales to the companies. Leveraging on their years of experience, they now provide free website analysis (worth HK$2,000) for all content types. Here are some website analysis projects HKGSEO has engaged in:

 

CMS Web Content Management System

 

We recommend using the most popular CMS in the market to build a website. Well-known CMS such as WordPress, Wix, Shopline, and Shopify will make it easier to manage web content and make the website easier to crawl and index by search engines.

 

HKGSEO hence cautions against web design companies that use their own CMS. Generally speaking, these websites are not SEO friendly. For example, they might have undesirable attributes such as duplicate page titles, dynamic URLs, or category pages that cannot update new content, etc. These attributes are disadvantageous to implementing SEO plans, which ultimately leads to the redesigning of the entire website, resulting in a much higher cost.

 

SSL Website Security Certificate

 

If your website does not have an SSL certificate (HTTPS) installed, it will be marked as an insecure website by the browser, which will adversely affect the credibility and conversion rate. SSL should be installed immediately to protect customer information, especially for e-commerce websites. There are some free SSLs available on the market, such as Let’s Encrypt, with paid premium certificates recommendation by online shops.

 

Mobile Version of The Website

 

The latest personal computer and Internet penetration survey published by the Census and Statistics Department shows that more than 5.97 million people in Hong Kong have mobile phones, and 99.7% of the users access the Internet on smartphones, higher than those connected to computers or other devices. Besides, Google has launched the Mobile-First Indexing mobile version of content priority indexing. If your website does not have a mobile version, the ranking will be poor and a lot of traffic will be lost.

 

Website Loading Speed

 

According to research, more than 68% of viewers will leave a website when it takes more than 3 seconds to open. The main reason for the slow loading is the use of shared hosting or non-local hosting. Switching to local hosting, SSD or CDN can effectively improve the loading speed.

 

Website Content

 

Is the website content of high quality? Does it answer the questions of potential consumers? To build up the content, some corporate websites have piled up keywords, and some have published blog articles regularly. However the content of the articles is sometimes plagiarized from news media. Plagiarism makes search engines recognize the overall website quality as low, which will in turn affect the ranking.

 

Websites and online shops are platforms that promote businesses. An optimized website will reward twice the results with half the effort of both online and offline marketing campaigns combined.

 

Please log onto www.hkgseo.com, fill in the website, email and contact number, and our network promotion experts will reply within one working day and arrange a free SEO analysis and consultation.

gbafNews28

Striding Towards a Bright Future

 

MACAU – Media OutReach – 5 January 2021 – Under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 was a very difficult year for the world. In the face of the severe challenges, Suncity Group has been working hard to achieve its vision of sustainable development in all areas. With its philosophy of “Innovating With Diversity, Striving For Success”, the Group strives to develop its business in the fields of VIP services, entertainment, global tourism, food and beverage, luxury fashion, etc., and is committed to becoming a leading integrated resort operator, with the expansion of its global hotel and resort management business as its core focus. At the same time, as an enterprise rooted in Macao and backed by our motherland, it is one of Suncity Group’s priorities to promote Macao as the “Creative City of Gastronomy”. With this in mind, the Group has actively and successfully expanded its food and beverage business to the Mainland, promoting cooperation between enterprises of Macao and of the Mainland. Also, HOIANA, the Group’s feature project in Vietnam, will serve as a bridge to introduce Vietnam’s culture of gastronomy to the Mainland, in response to national policies of “going global” and “bringing in”.

Suncity Group prepares to further expand its food and beverage business in the Mainland

Suncity Group is committed to bringing in the finest food culture to the Mainland

 

Leveraging on its experience in resort and hotel management, Suncity Group has been actively expanding its global hotel and resort management business and marching towards the goal of becoming an internationally renowned integrated resort operator. Year 2021 will see the grand opening of the Group’s first integrated resort HOIANA, with all facilities set to open their doors at the same time. Among the wide array of facilities included the entertainment facilities of Hoiana Suncity, the golf course of Hoiana Shores designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Jr., and the 4 luxury hotels managed and operated by Rosewood Hotel Group – Hoiana Hotel & Suites, New World Hoiana Hotel & Residences, KHOS Hoiana and Rosewood Hoi An, offering over 1,000 guest rooms.

 

Located in central Vietnam, the integrated resort HOIANA is only 40 km away from the Da Nang International Airport, with its 3-km coastline and a stunning sea view. The first phase of HOIANA covers an area of over 165 hectares, with the second phase project commencing in 2021. Utilizing its unique coastline, the next phase of the resort will focus on increasing the number of guest rooms as well as the expansion of retail areas, including beach resorts and a Vietnamese Village. Future developments also include facilities such as water and adrenaline park, observation deck, etc., all with the aim to create the finest entertainment hub of Southeast Asia. At the same time, taking advantage of its geographical location, HOIANA will target at bringing in tourists from Southeast Asia as its main source markets in the future. Suncity Group believes that HOIANA will bring significant revenue and sustainable development prospects, and is a demonstration of its determination to gradually evolve into an integrated resort operator and actively expand its resort management business.

 

In addition, through Suncity Group Holdings Limited (1383.HK), Suncity Group is now the single largest shareholder of Summit Ascent Holdings Limited (102.HK), and participates in both operations of Tigre de Cristal Resort Phase I in Vladivostok, Russia and the development of the resort’s second phase. Currently, Tigre de Cristal Phase I is the largest integrated resort in Russia, with a positive trend in business and revenue growth driven by the local Russian clientele. Set to open for preview in late 2022 and grandly open in 2023, the Phase II development project will also commence in 2021, doubling the number of entertainment facilities as well as tripling the number of guest rooms. The project will also add to the resort 4 new restaurants and bars, premium outlet and duty free shopping, multi-functional area, and a beach club and spa. Thanks to its prime location in Northeast Asia, Tigre de Cristal will be well suited for Japanese and Korean travellers. In the future, the Group will focus on developing local Russian clientele, while introducing Japanese and Korean travellers to the resort as the target source market.

 

Through the acquisition of Suntrust Home Developers, Inc. (Stock Code: SUN:PM), Suncity Group is also actively engaging in the development of the Westside City Integrated Resort in the heart of Entertainment City in Manila, Philippines. The project covers an area of over 20 hectares and is set to open its doors before 2023, creating the hub of entertainment of Philippines together with our local partners.

 

Moreover, Suncity Group is expanding into East Asia to further target at Japanese and Korean travellers, with plans to develop resorts in Miyako Island of Okinawa and Niseko of Hokkaido in Japan, with construction to begin in 2021. The Group plans to build a resort hotel in the Yonaha Maehama Beach Area, which is known as “the most beautiful beach in the East”, in Miyako Island of Okinawa, Japan and is expected to complete in 2023. The resort will provide 100 hotel rooms and 40 private villas with their own pools, as well as a variety of special water sports, including stand-up paddling, snorkelling and deep diving. In addition, the Group plans to build a luxury resort in Niseko of Hokkaido, Japan, which owns the reputation as one of the “Top 10 Ski Resorts in the World”. With development plans in the works in 2021, the project will cover an area of approximately 20 hectares, combining the natural beauty of Niseko and convenient leisure amenities. The completion of these new integrated resorts will serve as a testament to Suncity Group’s determination to become Asia’s leading integrated resort operator and an enterprise rooted in Macao that is actively responding to the national policy of “going global”.

 

Adhering to the spirit of patriotism, Suncity Group has been actively supporting the policy of the Macao Special Administrative Region Government, placing the development of the Motherland as our top priority. Through the business expansion of Sun Food and Beverage in the Mainland, Suncity Group aims to bring in the best of foreign cultures and contribute to the country’s prosperity. Since last year, Sun Food and Beverage established 8 restaurants in Chengdu and Chongqing, including “Danang Vietnamese Cuisine”, “Pho Thuy”, “Bangkok Cock” and “Đồ ăn vỉa hè Hoi An Danang”. Together with HOIANA, invested by Suncity Group Holdings Limited in Central Vietnam, the Group strives to introduce Vietnam’s culture of gastronomy to the Mainland.

 

In order to further expand its footprint in the Mainland, Sun Food and Beverage is preparing to open more quality branded restaurants in 2021. In the meantime, Sun Food and Beverage has successfully created new cooperation opportunities for the catering industry in Macao and the Mainland by taking initiative to organise investment visits to the Mainland. Currently, Sun Food and Beverage is actively supporting the “Luzu Temple District Renovation Project” of Chongqing as the company plans to open at the site more branded restaurants presenting Vietnamese cuisine, not just to increase company revenue, but also to help reinvigorate the old district. In addition, Sun Food and Beverage is preparing to set up a joint venture with Macao’s catering industry and open 3 restaurants in the area, bringing Macao-style hot pot, Portuguese cuisine and local desserts to Chongqing. This move not only enriches Mainland’s catering market, but is also a way to support the Macao Special Administrative Region Government’s core effort to promote Macao as “Creative City of Gastronomy”.

 

In the entertainment sector, Sun Entertainment Culture Limited has been actively expanding its entertainment-related businesses, covering film productions, online films, concerts and other commercial performing arts. In 2021, Sun Entertainment Culture Limited will expand its footprint in Southeast Asia through its subsidiaries in Japan and Malaysia, and is also enthusiastically preparing for the full recovery of the film industry this year. Currently, productions of film and TV drama invested by the Group from last year have been completed and are scheduled to be released in 2021, including “Limbo” starring Gordon Lam, which is scheduled to participate in international film festivals, “Dust to Dust” starring Gordon Lam and Da Peng, “Mom, Don’t Do That” produced by and starring Alyssa Chia. In addition, Sun Entertainment Culture Limited will be producing Macao’s first action and car racing film this year, with Han Han as producer of the film. For the acclaimed films “SPL: Sha Po Lang” and “Paradox”, production of the sequels “SPL III: War Needs Lord” and “Paradox II” will also begin in 2021.

 

As Alvin Chau, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Suncity Group stated, the tough year 2020 is now in the past. With the new COVID-19 vaccines being distributed worldwide, the global economy is expected to soon recover, which will be conducive to a strong growth of the motherland and Macao’s social, economic and tourism sectors in 2021. At the same time, staying true to the core values of patriotism, he understands that the prosperity of Macao and the country are inextricably linked. In the future, Suncity Group will continue to look forward to a prosperous future together with the country and Macao by vigorously upholding and following the long-term direction of the country in all aspects.

Prudential Launches New Research that Underscores Critical Role of Technology in Improving Healthcare in Asia

gbafNews28
  • 81% of respondents say technology has improved their access to health services
  • 71% believe that in the future they will be more reliant on technology to improve their personal health and wellbeing
  • Prudential’s new Asia-wide study recommends increased public-private co-operation to maximise the benefits of digital health technologies

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 11 January 2021 – Prudential Corporation Asia (Prudential) today released The Pulse of Asia — The Health of Asia Barometer, a report written by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), which underscores the unprecedented opportunity offered by digital health technologies to improve access to healthcare in Asia.

The research, which explores attitudes to healthcare in Asia, highlights the demand for tools and services to help people in the region better navigate the healthcare system. It also highlights the opportunity for governments to partner with the private sector to maximise the potential of digital healthcare.

High rates of digital health technology adoption


The report, which surveyed 5,000 adults across 13 markets in Asia, found that only around half of respondents (54%) believe that medical care is accessible and affordable. More concerningly, less than a quarter (22%) say they can easily access exercise and fitness facilities that would help improve their personal health and wellness in the coming year.

However, the Asia-wide research also underlines the potential of technology to directly combat these challenges. Over four fifths (81%) of respondents say technology has already improved their access to health services and nearly two thirds (60%) believe it has improved the affordability.

And this consumer appetite towards the digitisation of health shows no sign of abating – three years from now 71% of those surveyed said they will rely on technology even more heavily to improve their personal health and wellbeing.

Public-private action to improve healthcare


To fulfil the potential of digital healthcare, the report recommends greater public-private collaboration, suggesting that governments partner with private companies to deliver digitally-innovative ways to promote and manage health and wellness among citizens.

The report also highlights the opportunity for governments to improve public health information through digital channels. According to the research, social media is the most frequently cited source of personal health and wellness information. However, the survey respondents overwhelmingly agreed that the most trustworthy sources are national government and public health authorities. Governments can seize the opportunity by becoming the most reliable source of quality health information for citizens.

The report also recommends that governments look to promote connected health devices, but that these need to be underpinned by strict data governance. Data security will enable health data to be safely centralised, empowering governments to design better policies and build more targeted healthcare infrastructure.

Nic Nicandrou, Chief Executive of Prudential Corporation Asia, commented, “This ground-breaking research demonstrates that while Asia has already begun to embrace digital health technologies, the region is still some way from realising the full potential technology has to offer. The private and public sectors need to come together to make these opportunities a reality, and in doing so, improve health and wellness outcomes for individuals.

“Making digital healthcare a reality is an integral part of our efforts at Prudential. Through our app, Pulse by Prudential, we have linked up with partners at the forefront of innovation to deliver health information and guidance, as well as provide access to medical professionals. Our goal in doing this is to enable people to live well, for longer.”

Charles Ross, Editorial Director from the EIU, commented, “Our research shows that to make health and wellbeing more accessible and affordable, the public and private sectors need to come together to seize the initiative. A key way to do this is by breaking down ‘data silos’ between disparate healthcare services and creating secure connections between health apps, devices and centralised digital patient records.”

About Pulse of Asia – Health of Asia Barometer

Prudential commissioned the new Pulse of Asia – Health of Asia Barometer report to highlight the challenges people in the region face in improving their health and wellbeing. It is based on a survey of 5,000 people from 13 countries and territories in Asia — Cambodia, China, Hong Kong SAR, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Respondents range from 21 to 55 years old and cross income groups.
