مساعدة للملاك المبتسم – هيكفيجن تساعد الصندوق العالمي وصندوق الكرة الأرضية الواحدة على حماية خنازير البحر في نهر يانغزي

هانغجو، الصين، 8 حزيران/يونيو، 2019 / بي آر نيوزواير / — يوم 28 أيار/مايو، أطلق مشروع الحفاظ على خنازير البحر في نهر يانغزي في إقليم هوبي بوسط الصين. وكجزء من المشروع، ستنضم شركة هيكفيجن إلى الصندوق العالمي للطبيعة وصندوق الكرة الأرضية الواحدة لتقديم منتجات وتقنيات متقدمة لخنزير البحر في نهر يانغزي، وهو الحيوان الثديي الوحيد المتبقي في نهر الصين الأطول.

عند الحديث عن الأنواع المهددة بالانقراض في الصين، قد يخطر على بال معظم الناس على الفور حيوان الباندا العملاقة. ومع ذلك، فإن خنزير البحر في نهر يانغزي (المعروف باسم “الملاك المبتسم” بسبب ابتسامته الدائمة، ولطفه الذي يشابه الباندا)، هو أقرب إلى الانقراض. وقد اعتبره الاتحاد الدولي للحفاظ على الطبيعة بأنه حيوان “مهدد بالانقراض”، إذ لم يتبق من هذه الحيوانات أكثر من حوالي 1000 في البرية في العام 2017.https://prnewswire2-a.akamaihd.net/p/1893751/sp/189375100/thumbnail/entry_id/1_e0els3dt/def_height/400/def_width/400/version/100011/type/1

النبأ السار هو أن عددا متزايدا من الناس يعملون معًا في الحفاظ على النظام البيئي لنهر يانغزي، موطن “الملاك المبتسم”. ومشروع الحفاظ على خنازير البحر في نهر يانغزي هو مثال على ذلك.

فباستخدام معدات هيكفيجن مثل الكاميرات تحت الماء والمركبات الجوية غير المأهولة، سيدعم المشروع المحمية الطبيعية في مراقبة عادات خنازير البحر في نهر يانغزي وكذلك البيئة المائية بطريقة فعالة. وسيتمكن العاملون في المشروع من جمع البيانات اللازمة للبحث عن عادات حياة الخنازير في المياه الطبيعية ولتحسين الحماية.

وفقًا للسيد  لي غانغ، مدير الصندوق العالمي في منطقة ووهان، فقد ارتفع عدد خنازير يانغزي البحرية في هذه المنطقة من حوالي 20 إلى 100. ومع ذلك، فإن هذا الحيوان لا يزال يتطلب جهودًا مشتركة من الحكومات والمؤسسات والمنظمات غير الحكومية وغيرها من المنظمات الاجتماعية للتصدي لمعالجة التحديات الشديدة ومنع هذه الخنازير من الانقراض.

بصفتها شريكًا تقنيًا مهمًا لهذا المشروع، تعمل هيكفيجن عن كثب مع شركاء آخرين لتحقيق الإدارة الفعالة لدوريات الموائل وحمايتها بالنسبة لخنازير البحر في نهر يانغزي. وقال السيد فو هاو، رئيس مركز هيكفيجن هوبي للأعمال في الصين: “في السنوات الأخيرة، انخرطت هيكفيجن بعمق في مبادرات التنمية المستدامة، بما في ذلك جهودنا لحماية الخنازير البحرية في نهر يانغزي والتنوع البيولوجي المحلي من خلال التقنيات المبتكرة”.

‫مصنع سيارات غريت موتورز في تولا بروسيا يبدأ الإنتاج، واضعا شركات السيارات الصينية على طريق جديد للأسواق العالمية

تولا، روسيا، 7 حزيران/يونيو، 2019 / بي آر نيوزواير / — بدأ مصنع سيارات شركة غريت وول موتورز في تولا بروسيا، وهو أول مرفق تصنيع، كامل العملية، مملوك بالكامل للشركة يتم تأسيسه خارج سوق الشركة الأصلي، رسميا الإنتاج يوم 5 حزيران/يونيو 2019. تم الانتهاء من إنشاء مصنع تولا الذي تبلغ تكلفته 500 مليون دولار أميركي بعد أربع سنوات من الإنشاءات بطاقة سنوية محددة تبلغ 150،000 وحدة، سيتم إنتاج 65 في المئة منها محليًا. في الوقت نفسه، تم إطلاق أول طراز لشركة صناعة السيارات الصينية في جميع أنحاء العالم، وهي سيارة هافال أف 7، وهي متوفرة الآن في الأسواق خارج الصين. ويدل هذا على أن شركة صناعة السيارات الصينية قد دخلت مرحلة جديدة مع استراتيجيتها العالمية، ولكن الأهم من ذلك هو وضع علامات السيارات الصينية على طريق جديد إلى الأسواق العالمية.https://prnewswire2-a.akamaihd.net/p/1893751/sp/189375100/thumbnail/entry_id/1_u8r98264/def_height/400/def_width/400/version/100011/type/1

إن بدء تشغيل مصنع تولا له أهمية كبيرة بالنسبة لشركة غريت وول موتورز التي تسرع الخطى لتنفيذ استراتيجيتها العالمية. وبإنشاء هذا المصنع المحلي، تصبح شركة صناعة السيارات في وضع جيد يمكنها من إنتاج سيارات بصورة فعالة يمكنها تلبية احتياجات السوق المحلية بشكل أفضل. من المتوقع أن يكون لمصنع تولا تأثير دائم بعيد المدى على عولمة صناعة السيارات الصينية، حيث يمكن أن يكون بمثابة نموذج “جاهز للتوسع العالمي” من قبل شركات صناعة السيارات الصينية الأخرى التي تسعى للتوسع في الأسواق الدولية.

من المتوقع أن يولد أكبر مشروع استثماري لصناعة التصنيع الصينية في روسيا أكثر من 18 مليار يوان (حوالي 2.6 مليار دولار أميركي) على هيئة إجمالي قيمة إنتاجية وأكثر من 3 مليارات يوان من الأرباح قبل خصم الضرائب (حوالي 430 مليون دولار أميركي)، وتوفير ما يقرب من 3000 وظيفة. يعد المصنع خطوة مهمة في جهود شركة صناعة السيارات الصينية للاستجابة لمبادرة “الحزام والطريق” التي أطلقتها الحكومة الصينية. والأهم من ذلك، أن مصنع تولا، المبني على تكنولوجيا التصنيع المتقدمة وإجراءات إدارة الجودة وحماية البيئة الخاصة بشركة صناعة السيارات، يسير على الطريق الصحيح لتسريع تشكيل مجموعة صناعة السيارات المحلية وسلسلة الصناعة التحويلية، مما يعزز تحويل الهيكل الصناعي المحلي. بالإضافة إلى ذلك، فإن هذا المصنع لا يمثل علامة فارقة جديدة في التبادلات الاقتصادية والتجارية بين الصين وروسيا فحسب، ولكنه يمثل أيضًا حقبة جديدة لماركات السيارات الصينية التي تعمل في روسيا.

DOHA, Qatar Airways, the Official Partner and Official Airline of FIFA, was delighted and honoured to have played a full part in the much-anticipated celebrations at last night’s kick-off of the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019�.

Included amongst the many activities supported by the airline ahead of the first fixture between host France and Korea Republic, was a specially designed Qatar Airways stand in the FIFA Fan Experience in Paris, Lyon and Nice. Spectators and supporters of all ages were invited to take part in a virtual goalkeeper competition and were given the opportunity to see some of the finest football free-stylers on the planet to the soundtrack of an amazing group of world-class drummers. Celebrating the tournament’s kick off were four lucky winners of Qatar Airways’ social media contest, ran in partnership with the FIFA Fan Match, where the prize was Business Class flights and match tickets for the spectacular opening ceremony.

Also present at the opening ceremony was Jessica, a 17 year old female Brazilian footballer, whose journey from a favela in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Paris is an inspiring story of hope. Not only did she attend the Opening Match but also Qatar Airways will fly her to Doha to visit ASPIRE and the Women’s Football Association. The airline will be filming this amazing story and releasing it on its social media channels.

The Opening Match also marks the launch of the 360 Fan Cam that offers a chance to win Business Class flights and match tickets to the Quarter Finals.

We are totally committed to supporting the women’s game and I invite all the fans who are travelling to France to join with us in celebrating the skill and perseverance shown by these incredible sports stars. As an airline, we believe in the power of sports to unite people, and we look forward to bringing fans together in France over the next month to witness the most exciting event in the 2019 calendar of women’s sports.

In May the airline issued a new marketing campaign film supporting the competition, capturing the excitement of fans all over the world who will be watching the tournament as well as the thousands travelling to France to cheer their national team. The innovative film features a mother telling her daughter a wonderful bedtime story. It is a ?ight of imagination, in which she describes an amazing new land where women’s football reigns, where players rule and fans from many nations gather to cheer.

By the ?lm’s end, we realise that mother and daughter are in fact onboard a Qatar Airways aircraft ?ying to the very destination she has been describing: a magical land, where the story of women’s football comes alive.

UAE a committed partner to Arab world development, stabilisation: Dr. Anwar Gargash.

The UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs has reiterated the country’s commitment to ensuring regional stability.

“The UAE is a committed partner in the development and stabilisation of the Arab World,” Dr. Anwar bin Mohammed Gargash, told audiences in a keynote address at the GLOBSEC 2019 Bratislava Forum in Slovakia. The UAE official noted that the country had given around US$25 billion in aid to the region over the past five years; more than two-thirds of its entire foreign aid budget.

Dr. Gargash’s remarks explained the UAE’s position on various issues in its region, emphasising foundational stability along with “good economics, good politics, and deterrent security.” He argued for policies which embrace moderation and tolerance, and reject extremism.

He noted that those who live in more stable areas should not underestimate the value of that stability. “Underpinning economics and politics must be the most basic foundation of all: the region must regain some measure of stability. Constant warfare engenders religious extremism. Revolutions, and radical and sudden shifts of power, rouse constant excitement and optimism among observers from outside the region.

“Yet for those who are on that roller-coaster, who actually have to live with the consequences, this unpredictability is far more disturbing, painful and dangerous. All too often, it ends by strengthening extremists and heightening internal conflict,” the UAE Minister of State emphasised. “If we can offer stability, then we can proceed afterwards a little higher in the hierarchy of needs. On a foundation of stability, we can build a superstructure of moderation and cooperation. It can be done, and the UAE is a living example.”

He went on to highlight the UAE’s economic, scientific and cultural successes, from welcoming Pope Francis this year, to launching a probe next year to Mars, to hosting the World Expo in Dubai in 2020.

“What is important about this [Mars] mission is the message that it sends: that Arab countries can be just as progressive, just as global in their outlook, and just as ambitious for the welfare of their people, as any other � despite the chronic instability of our region,” Dr. Gargash said, adding, “The Hope mission is at the core of what the UAE is attempting to do � to create stories of success, aspiration and positivity that can shatter stereotypes, inspire our region and stand as a counterpoint to the brutal and backward ideologies that drag it down.”

Commenting on regional developments, Dr. Gargash explained the UAE’s conviction that Iran’s policies are damaging to the Arab World, and that the JCPOA was not suited to the task of containing them. He noted in his speech, “The nuclear deal signed in 2015 was a genuine effort to address one of the main concerns about Iran’s behaviour, but from our perspective in the region it did not tackle this dangerous ballistic missile programme or Iran’s regional policies – which include interference in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon and support for proxy forces including the terrorist group Hezbollah.”

“The JCPOA did not deliver a peaceful and normal Iran,” Dr. Gargash reiterated. “Today, we are faced with escalation in the region and bellicose rhetoric from Iran � which continues to foster and use sectarianism as a means to insert itself into the Arab world.

“Our response has been peaceful. We have cooperated fully with US sanctions, which we hope will influence Iran’s behaviour for the better. We have also signalled clearly our willingness to engage with Iran in a more positive spirit. When Iran suffered floods earlier this year, we were happy to give humanitarian aid to the victims.”

On Yemen, Dr. Gargash reiterated the UAE’s commitment to achieving a political solution to the conflict and ending military hostilities, despite ongoing Houthi violations including stealing food and other supplies from the civilian population, as documented by the World Food Programme. He said that the UAE is working hard with the UN Special Envoy to make progress on the political front.

Dr. Gargash also referred to events in Sudan and Libya while also observing that the lesson of the Arab Spring is that countries must answer the will of the people while also maintaining institutional stability.

“The great challenge in these countries, as we can see from the experience of the Arab Spring, is: how can popular change be achieved while maintaining institutional stability?”

Noting the transformation that took place in Eastern Europe in the 1990s, Dr. Gargash remarked, “There is a great difference between the revolutions that took place here � where a prior democratic tradition existed, and violent religious extremism did not; where a security umbrella was provided by NATO, and economic prosperity was promised by the European Union � and the Middle East.”

The UAE supported peacekeeping operations in the Balkans after the Bosnian War and Kosovo War in the late 1990s.

“In our region, we will need a longer and different journey. The UAE’s experience of its own development and of the wider region, tells us that change in our region must come through evolution,” he explained.

“That is not an excuse for standing still. We need to work hard at creating an effective governance model that can withstand the test of time. It does not need to be European or Far Eastern in its inspiration. But it should be a model that can bring justice, opportunity and economic prosperity.”

During the keynote address, he highlighted the importance of Europe and the UAE working together to learn from each other’s experiences and histories, and to foster increased economic stability, prosperity and mutual security.

Total UAE-EU trade is around EUR50 billion per year. The UAE began taking part in maritime exercises with visiting NATO ships in 2008. It currently holds an observer status in NATO.

In 2018, the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the European External Action Service, EEAS, signed a cooperation agreement to intensify political dialogue and strategic coordination on issues of mutual interest.
