Shanxi Shows Its New Charm of Cultural and Tourism Integration at China International Travel Mart 2020

gbafNews28

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 16 November 2020 – The China International Travel Mart 2020 (CITM 2020), co-sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Civil Aviation Administration of China, and the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government, will kick off at the Shanghai New International Expo Center from November 16th to 18th. With the theme of “Ancient Civilization of China · Beautiful Scenery of Shanxi”, Culture and Tourism Department of Shanxi Province will fully display Shanxi’s rich cultural tourism resources and products, such as “three world heritages” and three tourism sectors which are “the Yellow River, the Great Wall, and the Taihang Mountains”, showing its unique charm to the world.

Shanxi gets its name for being located in the west of Taihang Mountains. Its unique natural geographical conditions gestate magnificent scenery of Shanxi. The Yellow River ranked as the second-longest river in China, flows through 4 cities and 19 counties in Shanxi Province, forming the Hukou Waterfall, Qiankun Bay, Laoniu Bay, and other spectacular scenery. The beautiful landscape along the Taihang Mountains, represented by Hengshan Mountain, Taihang Grand Canyon, and Mount Wangmang, makes its four seasons as beautiful as paintings.


Shanxi Province, known as one of the cradles of Chinese civilization and one of the major provinces of Chinese culture, has left us numerous scenic spots, historical sites, and cultural treasures in the long history of thousands of years. The stories of Yao, Shun and Yu and their historical sites and remains have proven that it was the first place called “China”. Mount Wutai, the holy land of Buddhism, Pingyao Ancient City, and the Yungang Grottoes, one of the greatest ancient stone carving art treasure houses, are World Heritage Sites in Shanxi. The Great Wall, as the most recognizable cultural symbol of China, stretches 8,851 km (5500.3 mi), with 3,500 km (2175 mi) of that run across Shanxi Province. What’s more, intangible cultural heritages and food feasts throughout Shanxi make its cultural tourism brand image richer and livelier.


We do believe that the Culture and Tourism Department of Shanxi Province will bring Shanxi’s ancient Chinese civilizations and beautiful scenery to people from home and abroad with impressive results at the mart.

Trend Micro Integrates with AWS Gateway Load Balancer for Improved Security Function

gbafNews28

New integration eases security usability and allows for a dynamic, frictionless approach to implementation

 

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 16 November, 2020 – Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), the leader in cloud security, today announced its hybrid cloud security integration with the newly launched AWS Gateway Load Balancer (GWLB), a service that makes it easy to deploy, scale, and manage your third-party virtual appliances with Amazon Web Services (AWS). This integration provides customers with the ability to use trusted vendor appliances, like those from Trend Micro, in a way that is auto-scalable and operates to continuously meet security needs in an as-a-service format.

 

In today’s economic reality, companies are quickly migrating their infrastructure into a hybrid cloud model to meet the demands of remote work. Gartner stated in a recent report, “Dynamic cloud realities demand that controls automatically adapt to the protected workloads because an IP address alone is no longer sufficient for security.[1]” Trend Micro Cloud One — Network Security with GWLB delivers protection that fits the dynamic nature of cloud migration.

 

“To maintain functional IT operations, meet compliance standards, and protect complex systems in the cloud, security is a concern that must be proactively addressed,” said Mark Nunnikhoven, vice president of cloud research for Trend Micro and AWS Community Hero. “Customers need an appliance that adapts to increased volume and automatically provides centralized implementation of network security with less friction. GWLB with Cloud One — Network Security help solve this problem for security teams.”

 

Security teams using GWLB with Trend Micro for their hybrid cloud security can benefit from high availability, scaling, and load balancing while maintaining all product features and benefits.

 

“As companies move their infrastructure in the cloud, they are looking for ways to easily insert, scale, and manage security appliances in their network topologies,” said Mayumi Hiramatsu, Vice President, Amazon EC2 Networking, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Trend Micro is an AWS Advanced Technology Partner with a long-standing history of providing security solutions to help customers address their portion of the shared responsibility model. AWS Gateway Load Balancer with Trend Micro’s security solution is now available to more than 290,000 active buyers in AWS Marketplace and can help our shared customers address their network security needs in the cloud.”

 

Today’s integration with GWLB coincides with Trend Micro’s release of its Cloud One — Network Security solution, now available in AWS Marketplace.

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 19 November 2020 – NEFIN, leading carbon neutrality solutions provider, is proud to announce the completion of their first solar PV project for Puratos Group, a global leading manufacturer of ingredients for bakery, patisserie, and chocolate.

“As part of Puratos Group’s environmental sustainability plan, Puratos Malaysia is ready to produce renewable energy this year to offset our carbon footprint on the environment. We also want to be the forefront of this initiative in the country,” commented Ms Foo Mei Lai, Operations Director of Puratos Malaysia.

 

This pioneering partnership between NEFIN and Puratos was cemented with the completion of the installation of 628 solar PV panels covering around 14,778 sq.ft. of rooftop areas on top of Puratos plant in Malaysia. Since October 2020, Puratos Malaysia has been powered by green energy.

 

Globally, Puratos emitted 100,000 tons of CO2 in 2018. Since the announcement of its carbon neutrality goal by 2025, Puratos has been very active in embracing sustainability measures wherever possible. “We are pleased to partner with NEFIN on this solar project who are experts in bespoke solar energy development. At Puratos, we are committed to environmental sustainability. This project echoes our ongoing initiative in creating a positive environmental impact through carbon neutrality.” Continued Ms Foo.

“The partnership with Puratos has been a very refreshing one for the team,” said Mr. Bor Hung Chong, Managing Partner, NEFIN Malaysia. “We really value Puratos and their long-term vision to build a sustainable work environment for Puratos employees and other stakeholders including overall society.”

Throughout the project, the NEFIN team has encountered a lot of unprecedented challenges as a result of the pandemic. Different teams had to stop work several times throughout the year to comply with the movement control order implemented by the Malaysian government.

 

“We really appreciate the effort of the Puratos team and the accommodations they made for us in order to realize the project within this year. We look forward to further collaboration with Puratos in Malaysia and also internationally. Next, we will be installing a larger scale of solar panels for Puratos plants in Thailand.” Mr. Chong added.
