China (Guangdong) Pilot Free Trade Zone, as a pioneer in China’s new round of reform and opening up, is becoming “one of the first choices” for foreign capital to enter into the Chinese market.

Dong Ke said at the East Tech West: “Nansha has been approved as a national comprehensive bonded zone and one of the demonstration zones for creative promotion of import trade, driving us to build a new highland for opening up and providing opportunities for people at home and abroad to invest and start businesses here.”

The high-tech industry is developing strongly in Nansha, with the number of related enterprises increasing continuously.

Now mankind is undergoing major changes unseen in a century. Scientific and technological exchanges and cooperation strongly support global economic recovery. Dong Ke said more people are welcomed to share ideas and wisdom at East Tech West, jointly discuss new models of international scientific and technological innovation cooperation, and contribute new thinking global economic development.

LONDON, Nov. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ –On November 24, the Times of India, in collaboration with London-headquartered legal advisory CS Global Partners (,1,eNNvrPdLwfoLpQ4NVLzgwWX5F_9dHzqfM8Ft4vA-cuT-mYbPQtFIMf2aADrY7REr6xB1j75WWfWTkmqk7IukzdtTvJHtOqKN9UBzKwp60A,,&typo=1),  will host a webinar on Citizenship by Investment (CBI). The concept originates from the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis, a Caribbean twin-island nation that established their CBI Programme in 1984. Prime Minister Dr the Honourable Timothy Harris will take part in the webinar, as will the CEO of the country’s Citizenship by Investment Unit, Mr Les Khan.

St Kitts and Nevis recently announced a significant, but temporary reduction (,1,hyh7HQifA8YQCLKQZrgGyNqC4iWKJ0fCfLvGVRa8fuxXhsT0cyZi7UUHi1aqvfENVOsK7afbM0I-XzjV2O5qM09UwfVTWcNVY7wdjvku-fPc98Hb&typo=1)  in the amount that qualifies families for CBI.

In a recent webinar with Gulf News, Mr Khan explained that it is the fast and efficient processing that makes investors choose St Kitts and Nevis’ ‘Platinum Standard’ Programme now, in particular.

“We are very satisfied at this time to have the best Programme and we commit, going forward, to continue to provide a competent and reliable service,” PM Harris told Gulf News. “We commit that we will always be the most innovative Programme available, and, of course, we value the choice that we have developed over all these years with our clients, with governments far and near.”

In light of the ongoing pandemic and investor trends, the Prime Minister noted: “At this particular time of uncertainty, I believe investors are looking not just at acquiring citizenship but acquiring it in a country which is peaceful, which has strong rule of law, and which is growing or has that capacity.” PM Harris made reference to the World Justice Project’s Rule of Law Index, which places St Kitts and Nevis in the world’s top 25% for rule of law. “The rule of law is strong, property rights are respected, our judiciary is working and working well,” he added.

St Kitts and Nevis had an efficient response to preventing the spread of COVID-19, with only 19 confirmed cases and no deaths. The country started its economic recovery early on.

‫شہریت بذریعہ سرمایہ کاری: سینٹ کٹس اور نیوس کے وزیر اعظم 24 نومبر کے ویبنار میں ٹائمز آف انڈیا کے ساتھ آپشنز پرتبادلہ خیال کریں گے

لندن، 18 نومبر، 2020/ پی آر نیوز وائر/۔۔ ٹائمز آف انڈیا، لندن ہیڈ کواٹر لیگل ایڈوائزری سی ایس گلوبل پارٹنرز کے اشتراک سے شہریت بذریعہ سرمایہ کاری کے عنوان سے ایک ویبنار کی میزبانی کرے گا۔اس تصور کی ابتداء فیڈریشن آف سینٹ کٹس اینڈ نیوس سے ہوئی ہے ، جو کیریبین کے جڑواں جزیرے والی قوم ہے جس نے 1984 میں اپنے  سی بی آئی پروگرام کی بنیاد ڈالی تھی۔ وزیر اعظم ڈاکٹر عزت ما آب ٹموتھی  ہیرس ویبنار میں حصہ لیں گے اور ملک کے سٹیزن شپ بائے انویسٹمنٹ یونٹ کے سی ای او محترم لیس خان بھی شریک ہوں گے۔

سینٹ کٹس اور نیوس نے حال ہی میں اس رقم میں ایک اہم ،لیکن عارضی کمی کا اعلان کیا ہے جو خاندانوں کو سی بی آئی کا اہل بناتا ہے۔ 15 جنوری 2021 تک ، چار افراد  تک پر مشتمل خاندان سسٹین ایبل گروتھ فنڈ میں 150,000 امریکی ڈالر شامل کرکے شہریت حاصل کرسکتے ہیں۔ انہیں پہلے پوری طرح مستعد جانچ پڑتال سے گزرنا ہوگا جو دنیا میں سخت ترین سمجھی جاتی ہے۔ گلف نیوز کے ساتھ ہونے والے حالیہ ویبنار میں محترم لیس خان نے وضاحت کی کہ یہ تیز اور موثر عمل ہے جس سے سرمایہ کار خاص طور پر اب سینٹ کٹس اور نیوس کے ‘پلاٹینم اسٹینڈرڈ’ پروگرام کا انتخاب کرتے ہیں۔

وزیر اعظم ٹموتھی ہیرس نے گلف نیوز کو بتایا کہ “ہمارے پاس اس وقت بہترین پروگرام موجود ہے جس پر ہم بہت مطمئن ہیں اور ہم مجاز اور قابل اعتماد خدمات کی فراہمی جاری رکھنے کے لئے آگے بڑھنے کا عہد کرتے ہیں۔ہم عہد کرتے ہیں کہ ہم ہمیشہ جدید ترین پروگرام کےلئے دستیاب رہیں گے اور ظاہر ہے کہ ہم اس انتخاب کی قدر کرتے ہیں جو ہم نے اپنے کلائنٹس اور پاس اور دُور کی حکومتوں کے ساتھ ان تمام سالوں میں تیار کیا ہے۔”

کووڈ19کی حالیہ لہر اور سرمایہ کاروں کے رجحانات کی روشنی میں وزیر اعظم نے بات کرتے ہوئے کہا کہ اس غیر یقینی صورتحال کے موقع پر مجھے یقین ہے کہ سرمایہ کار محض شہریت حاصل کرنے پر غور نہیں کر رہے ہیں بلکہ ایک پُر امن ملک میں اس کے حصول کے خواہاں بھی ہیں ، جس میں قانون کی مضبوط حکمرانی ہے اور جو ترقی کر رہا ہے یا  اس کی صلاحیت رکھتا ہے ۔ وزیر اعظم نے ٹموتھی ہیرس نے عالمی انصاف منصوبے کے رُول آف لاء انڈیکس کا حوالہ دیا جس میں قانون کی حکمرانی کے لئے سینٹ کٹس اور نیوس کو دنیا کے چوٹی کے 25 فیصد میں شامل کیا گیا ہے۔ انہوں نے مزید کہا کہ قانون کی حکمرانی مضبوط ہے ، املاک کے حقوق کا احترام کیا جاتا ہے ، ہماری عدلیہ کام کر رہی ہے اور بہترین کام کر رہی ہے۔

کووڈ19 کے پھیلاو کو روکنے کے لیئے سینٹ کٹس اور نیوس کا ردعمل   کافی متاثر کن تھا صرف 19 تصدیق شدہ کیسز ہیں اور کوئی ہلاکت  واقع نہیں ہوئی۔ ملک نے معاشی بحالی کا جلد ہی آغاز کردیا ۔

Vivek Goel named president and vice-chancellor of the University of Waterloo

Innovator, scholar and bold leader becomes university’s seventh president

Vivek Goel

Vivek Goel will become the seventh president and vice-chancellor of the University of Waterloo. He begins his five-year term on July 1, 2022. “In Waterloo, I can see what a post-pandemic university looks like,” Goel said.

WATERLOO, Ontario, Nov. 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vivek Goel, a distinguished scholar with extensive achievements in research, teaching and leadership across both public and private sectors, will become the seventh president and vice-chancellor of the University of Waterloo.

Goel, who begins his five-year term on July 1, 2021, is recognized in Canada and around the world as a leading public-health researcher, health-services evaluation expert, and champion for the use of research evidence in health policymaking.

Goel has held several senior roles at the University of Toronto, including Vice-President and Provost and most recently as Vice-President of Research and Innovation.

The public health physician currently serves as a member of the federal government’s COVID-19 Immunity Task Force and Scientific Advisor for the CanCOVID Research Network. He was previously the founding president and CEO of Public Health Ontario.

“Dr. Goel has decades of experience and expertise as a university leader and as a champion of student experience, research and innovation. He is uniquely qualified to guide the institution and to bolster our strengths at the intersection of health, society and technology,” said Cindy Forbes, Chair of the University of Waterloo’s Board of Governors.

Goel said the current global situation reminds us of our responsibility to prepare students and citizens to confront the many challenges ahead. “A research-intensive institution like Waterloo is ideally poised to create the change and solutions for a better future – whether it is tackling public-health challenges, addressing systemic racism, dealing with the climate crisis, or spurring economic recovery and growth.”

“In Waterloo, I can see what a post-pandemic university looks like,” he said.

The appointment represents the culmination of an almost yearlong effort by a 19-member presidential nominating committee comprised of students, staff, faculty and board governors, in consultation with stakeholders across campus and the broader community.

“The Presidential Nominating Committee sought a candidate who is renowned for their experienced leadership and is committed to the success of faculty, staff, students and alumni,” Forbes said. “We looked for an individual who will actively engage to foster equity, diversity and inclusion as well as a deep sense of community across our campuses.”

“I look forward to working with Dr. Goel as he leads Waterloo on its transformational path and builds on the achievements of President Feridun Hamdullahpur.”

Hamdullahpur has served as president and vice chancellor of the University of Waterloo since 2010 and will continue through June 2021. He has elevated Waterloo’s international profile, placed exceptional focus on student experience and wellbeing and set the ambitious course for the University’s 2020-2025 strategic plan.

“Waterloo is a place where business, community and governmental leaders come together to seek today’s solutions to tomorrow’s problems. I am confident that under the leadership of Vivek Goel, our community will continue to flourish and drive even greater impact around the world,” Hamdullahpur said.

Goel obtained his medical degree from McGill University. He did his post-graduate medical training in community medicine at the University of Toronto, and obtained a master’s degree (MSc) in health administration from the University of Toronto and a master’s degree (MS) in biostatistics from Harvard University’s School of Public Health.

Goel also currently serves on the boards of the Vector Institute, TRIUMF—Canada’s particle accelerator—and the Canadian Institute for Health Information.

چین بھر میں : جسمانی طور پر معذور افرادچین کے لائیو سٹریم ترقی میں اپنا حصہ ڈال رہےہیں

لنژاوٗ، چین،17نومبر،2020 /ژن ہوا-ایشیا نیٹ/ — وہیل چیئر استعمال کرنے والی 29 سالہ شی ژوہاوٗ،نے لائیو سٹریمینگ ای-کامرس میں اپنی جگہ بنانے کے بعد سے اب تک 200,000 فالورز بناچکی ہیں۔

چین کی سب سے بڑی سالانہ آن لائن خریداری کی تقریب،جسے سنگل ڈے یا ڈبل الیون بھی کہا جاتا ہےجو بدھ کےدن منعقد ہوتا ہے، میں بڑھتے ہوئے لائیو سٹریمر میں سے ایک،شی اب اس میں مصروف رہتی ہیں۔

وہیل چیئر استعمال کرنے والی 29 سالہ شی ژوہاوٗ،نے لائیو سٹریمینگ ای-کامرس میں اپنی جگہ بنانے کے بعد سے اب تک 200,000 کی بڑی تعداد میں فالورز بناچکی ہیں۔

صبح سویرے ،وہ اس تقریب کے لیے تیار ہوئیں اور لونگنان شہر ،جوشمال مغربی چین کے صوبہ گانسو میں سب سے کم ترقی کرنے والا علاقہ ہے،میں اپنے آفس کے لیےروانہ ہوئیں۔

اپنے ویرچوئیل سٹور پر،وہ مخصوص مقامی اشیائ پورے ملک کے خریداروں کو بیچتی ہیں،جن میں سیچوان مرچ سے لے کر روایتی چینی ادویات شامل ہیں۔

شی 2013میں ایک حادثہ کے بعد وہیل چیئر تک محدود ہوگئیں۔لائیو سٹریمنگ کے بارے میں جاننے سے قبل،وہ بند ماحول میں اپنےدن گزارتی تھیں جہاں کام کرنے کا کوئی موقع نہیں ہوتاتھا۔

یہاں تک کہ ایک موقع نے ان کے دروازے پر دستک دی جب لونگنان کی ایک شہری  ڈو گویئنگ اپنے آبائی شہر واپس آئیں،اور مقامی حکومت کی درخواست پر دیہی علاقوں میں غربت کم کرنے کے لیے ای-کامرس کوبطور ذریعہ فروغ دینے کے لیے کسانوں کی ایک تنظیم بنائی۔

ڈو نے شی کو دعوت دی,جو علاقائی لب ولہجہ کے بغیر معیاری مندارن زبان بول لیتی ہیں،اور انھیں اپنے آن لائن سٹور کو سنبھالنے میں مدد دی اور انھیں مشورہ دیا کہ وہ لائیوسٹریمنگ ای-کامرس میں اپنی قسمت آزمائیں۔

شی کا کہناتھا “ میں حیران رہ گئی۔میں اپنے اردگرد موجود افراد سے بات کرنے میں ہچکچاتی تھی اور یہاں تو لائیو ناظرین سے بات کرنا تھی۔”

لیکن شی نے آخر کار اپنے خوف پر قابو پالیا۔مارچ کے اوائل میں،شی نے کامیابی سے اپنی لائیو سٹریمنگ کا آغاز کیا،اور ایک دن میں 30,000 یوآن ) 4,548 ڈالر(تک کی اشیائ فروخت کیں۔

شی چین میں خریداری کی ایک نئی راہ کی نمائندگی کرتی ہیں،جو ریٹیلرز کو “لائیو کامرس” کی سطح پر لے جارہی ہیں جو ای-کامرس اور لائیو سٹریمنگ کو یکجا کررہی ہے۔

لانژہاوٗ یونیورسٹی کے ماتحت انسٹیٹیوٹ آف کاوئنٹی اکنامک ڈیولپمنٹ کے ماوٗ جنہوانگ کا کہنا تھا کہ ای-کامرس لوگوں کی زندگیوں میں نئی تبدیلیاں لارہی ہے۔ان کامزید کہناتھا کہ چین کے پہاڑی علاقوں میں بسنے والے مزید سے مزید لوگ ای-کامرس سے فائدہ اٹھارہے ہیں اور اپنی جیبیں بھر رہے ہیں۔

لائیوسٹریمنگ شی جیسے جسمانی معذور افراد کے لیے ایک بڑی مدد رہی ہے،جو اس نئے کاروباری طریقے کے نہ ہونے کی بنا پر پیچھے رہ جاتے۔

لونگنان میں،کل 366 آن لائن سٹور جسمانی معذور افراد چلارہے ہیں،اور ایسے ہی 670 مزدوروں کو نوکریاں دی گئیں ہیں۔

شی کا کہناتھا” ای-کامرس نے نہ صرف ہمیں فائدہ دیا ہے بلکہ ہمیں وقار اور امید بخشی ہے۔”
