Mitigating Human Capital Risks and Occupational Health Challenges in China

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 1 novembre 2019

As an economic leader in growth, China has become an attractive country for international and regional organisations looking to set up operations. However, when complying with new health and safety regulations, a business can face a number of new challenges. To protect its 776 million strong workforce, there has been a shift in the regulatory structure on occupational health and compliance in China. It is now imperative for organisations currently operating, or looking to operate in the country, to implement clear policies and procedures in order to avoid financial and legal implications.To help organisations gain insight into the occupational health risks and requirements of operating in China, International SOS has partnered with Enhesa, to produce a new white paper: Operating in China Mitigating Human Capital Risks and Occupational Health Challenges in China. The paper addresses aspects including The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the impact of non-communicable diseases, as well as initiatives like the ‘Healthy China 2030 Planning Outline.’ Dr Vincent Yue, Regional Medical Director at International SOS, comments, “As the world’s second largest economy, the business opportunities in China are rife. In order to maximise these opportunities, it is imperative that employers understand the moral and legal obligations to provide Duty of Care to employees. Healthcare is central to the Chinese government’s agenda, but the medical practice infrastructure and medical management system is different to that of the west. This paper provides guidance as well as recommended best practice for organisations to protect their workforce and business resilience.” Jessica Sarnowski, Head of Content Marketing & Thought Leadership at Enhesa, comments, “China’s increased emphasis on occupational health protection for employees makes it imperative for employers to be aware of the key pieces of legislation outlined in this whitepaper. Global companies that have a place of business in China should take note, not only of the evolving legal requirements in China, but also the best practices for mitigating risks related to employee health.” The transformation and reforms of China’s healthcare system is an on-going effort and critical for the domestic agenda for the Chinese government. The strategy of “Health China 2030” highlights the importance of occupational health workplace safety, and goes as far as outlining directions for occupational health practitioners.

CTA Urges Congress to Intervene in U.S.-China Trade War

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 15 settembre 2019

The following statement is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, regarding the increasing cost of Section 301 tariffs on American businesses and consumers:“Increasing tariffs are giving the stock markets whiplash, and consumers are getting worried – just last month consumer sentiment dropped almost 10 percentage points. The president has overstepped his power on trade, and our nation’s businesses and families are footing the bill – it’s time for Congress to step up for American businesses and consumers. With less than 40 legislative days left this year, we urge Congress to hold a hearing on the Reclaiming Congressional Trade Authority Act of 2019, which would reassert Congress’ role in trade policy and protect Americans from this seemingly endless trade war. Congress has the power to review and should use its limited time left to investigate the scope and intent of the president’s misguided trade policy.”Our Constitution gives Congress clear authority on trade and tax matters and Congress has granted the executive branch limited power on tariff policy – but that authority has been taken too far. Congress exacerbated the Great Depression of the 1930s with its protectionist Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act. Instead of repeating history, Congress can help prevent another horrible economic mistake by moving forward with the Reclaiming Congressional Trade Authority Act.” The U.S. consumer technology industry paid $1.9 billion in tariffs in July – five times higher than it paid in July 2018, despite a 38% decrease in imports, according to new data from CTA, compiled and analyzed by The Trade Partnership. The July cost includes $143 million in tariffs on 5G-related products – including smartphones, routers, gateways and servers – a critical emerging technology that faced virtually no tariffs prior to the trade war. Since July 2018, Section 301 tariffs on China have cost the industry almost $12 billion, including $1.2 billion on 5G-related products alone.

CTA: Raising Tariffs Hurts Americans, Not China

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 27 agosto 2019

The following statement is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association (CTA)® regarding President Trump’s announcement to increase the current Section 301 tariffs on Chinese products:“Enough is enough – as evidenced by today’s 623 point drop in the Dow, global markets are reeling on fears of a global recession. And today’s announcement only inflicts more pain on American businesses, workers and families. The president is right to fight against China’s forced technology transfers and IP theft – but tariffs are taxes on Americans, putting us on the wrong economic path and compromising our global leadership. “These escalating tariffs are the worst economic mistake since the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of 1930 – a decision that catapulted our country into the Great Depression. Instead of making America great again, the president is using tariffs to make a great economic mistake – again. How much longer will our families, companies and economy be forced to bear the financial burden of this misguided trade policy? Clearly, tariffs aren’t moving us toward a deal with China – it’s time to end the trade war and come to an agreement.”

China-Thailand Strategic Cooperation Starts Three New Growth Points Following Tourism

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 27 agosto 2019

According to Thailand media reports, Thailand’s Minister of Tourism and Sports recently submitted a bill to Thai Prime Minister Prayuth to introduce a one-year free visa policy for Chinese and Indian tourists. The move was aimed at stimulating the development of Thailand’s tourism industry as a whole and striving to achieve a tourism revenue of 3.4 trillion baht.Earlier, Piphat said the lasting impact on Thailand’s tourism development, including economic problems, foreign tourists’ confidence problems, the appreciation of the Thai baht, Chinese tourists’ suspension of travel to Thailand. Therefore, the department planned to introduce a one-year free visa policy and replace the free visa on arrival policy that expires on October 31, 2019.Not only does Thailand want to boost tourism exchanges with China, the relationship between China and Thailand has been stable. In recent years, with the in-depth development of Sino-Thai relations, the cooperation between the two sides has gone far beyond tourism and agricultural trade. China hopes not only that Thailand will become more prosperous, but also that Thailand will become safer and more innovative. China-Thailand cooperation is moving towards three more strategic areas.The first is military security cooperation. The long-term stability of China-Thailand relationship has enabled the two countries to form a firm strategic mutual trust. In the future, China and Thailand are expected to carry out more extensive military equipment cooperation, including supporting Thailand in building its own military industry chain and jointly developing weapons and equipment.The second is medical cooperation. In August 2019, the China-Thailand Joint Research Institute of Natural Medicine held an opening ceremony in Bangkok, which will help promote the health cooperation between the two countries and the industrialization of natural medicines.Finally, cooperation in scientific and technological innovation. The implementation of protectionism by the U.S. in the field of science and technology has brought about new changes in global science and technology cooperation, while Thailand, due to its political neutrality, will play a more important role in the future.

The global animation output value approximates USD250 billion, and records as much as USD500 billion or so if peripheral products are taken into account.The Japanese animation market was worth over JPY2 trillion for the first time in 2017, thanks to the foreign animation boom and business diversification.

Global and China Semiconductor Equipment Industry Report

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 12 giugno 2019

The semiconductor industry with a high technical threshold is advancing speedily. Every generation of products requires unique processes and equipment.The semiconductor process involves monocrystalline silicon wafer fabrication, IC design, IC manufacturing, IC packaging, and testing. The production of monocrystalline silicon wafers needs monocrystalline furnace; and six types of equipment are indispensable to IC manufacturing, including lithography machine, etching machine, thin film equipment, diffusion/ion implantation equipment, wet process equipment, and process detector. Among semiconductor equipment, wafer foundry equipment accounts for about 80% of procurement, testing equipment 8%, packaging equipment 7%, and silicon wafer plant equipment and others 5%.Characterizing a rather high concentration, semiconductor equipment manufacturing is a typical capital- and technology-intensive sector with high technical barriers and in want of huge capital and manpower. In 2018, the world’s top ten semiconductor equipment vendors commanded a combined 71.4% market share, and the top five giants enjoyed 61.4% market shares together. Of the top ten, ASML comes from the Netherlands and the rest are based in the United States and Japan.The localization rate of semiconductor equipment in Mainland China is merely 11.5%, and the China-made semiconductor equipment makes up roughly 2% of the global market. In 2018, the global sales of semiconductor equipment achieved $61.6 billion including $10.1 billion or 16.4% from Chinese Mainland which is the third largest market after Taiwan and South Korea. Yet, there is still a huge technical gap between the semiconductor equipment made in China and foreign peers. In a word, Chinese equipment with low brand awareness is less competitive and take small market shares.

China’s bold ambitions to lead in digital technologies – a challenge for Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 13 aprile 2019

Berlin. China’s efforts at home and abroad to become a global leader in digital technologies is a challenge for Europe. The ambitions of telecommunications giant Huawei to participate in building European 5G networks are just one example of many, say MERICS researchers Kristin Shi-Kupfer and Mareike Ohlberg, authors of a new MERICS study, “China’s digital rise. Challenges for Europe.” Shi-Kupfer, who heads the MERICS research area on politics, society, and media, and research associate Ohlberg show that China’s digital ambitions are state-driven. They examine the close connection within the IT sector between the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the state, and private companies and show that China’s digital rise is not only spurred by economic interests but also by political goals to become a leading superpower in research and technology.
Civil-military integration in particular has been on the national agenda of state and party leader Xi Jinping since 2014. For example, China wants to take the lead in dual-use technologies and quantum cryptography, advance its cyber-warfare capabilities, and use Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a weapon. According to the MERICS study, China also wants to use its capabilities domestically to implement its vision of cyber domination and social control. This includes the Social Credit System, which the leadership wants to roll out nationwide in the coming years. For China, digitization is a means to achieve several goals at once: creating new engines of growth, achieving technological independence, social control, and international leadership in digital technologies.
China has invested disproportionately in technological innovation in recent years. For quantum cryptography research alone, China has provided at least an estimated USD 50 billion of funding, that’s ten times as much as the United States has made available. In AI, China filed around 30,000 patents last year, two and a half times more than the US. All these efforts are beginning to pay off: The People’s Republic is already considered the leading digital marketplace and home to a third of all startups with a market evaluation above USD one billion. Soon, the country could become the world leader in digital key technologies. At the same time, Beijing is changing the global technology landscape by pushing blockchain, the Internet of Things and 5G standards and by filling key positions in relevant international institutionHowever, China’s digitization strategy also faces setbacks: Risks to innovation are the increased control of the CCP over private companies and the inefficient allocation of capital. For the foreseeable future, China will remain dependent on foreign core technologies. Western industrialized countries are increasingly concerned about potential security risks, criticizing the lack of data protection and the lack of ethical standards in China. A push back against China’s digitization and technology may only just have begun, say Shi-Kupfer and Ohlberg. But how should Europe deal with these challenges? What consequences does China’s digital progress have for European politics, the economy and security? Shi-Kupfer and Ohlberg say that China could become a serious threat if the country continues its path of seeking technological autonomy, rather than reciprocity and cooperation. The risks for Europe are compounded by the fact that the EU has no coordinated ecosystem for digital innovation and does not speak with one voice on China. If Europe does not catch up on key digital technologies, it risks losing out, or worse getting crushed between China and the US, warn Ohlberg and Shi-Kupfer. European member states would therefore have to make the strengthening of the European digital market a priority, expand cybersecurity cooperation with allied third countries and make data protection and ethical standards prerequisites for cooperation with China.
