Hangzhou gears up to host 2016 G20 Summit

Hangzhou gears up to host 2016 G20 Summit

first_imgHangzhou. Image credit: Hangzhou M.I.C.E. AssociationIt has been more than a decade since the government of Hangzhou set the goal of turning the Zhejiang Province capital into an international meetings hub.With the news of G20 combined with the announcement that Hangzhou will host the 2022 Asian Games, the city is poised to take its place on the world stage.Hangzhou, a centuries-old city with a population of nearly 8.9 million, is the first China city to host the G20 Summit, which is slated to take place on September 4 and 5.The G20 is the main forum for global economic and financial cooperation that brings together the world’s most advanced and emerging economies, representing around 85 percent of global GDP, 80 percent of world trade, and two-thirds of the world population.Started in 1999, G20 was a meeting of finance ministers and central bank governors in the aftermath of the Asian financial crisis. The members included 19 individual countries – Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, Britain, the United States, along with the European Union.“This is brilliant news for Hangzhou,” says Mr. Li Hong, Director-General, Hangzhou Tourism Commission (HTC).“It is an empirical reflection of growing confidence in Hangzhou and a confident indication that we may expect our share of the global market to grow. The hosting of the G20 Leaders Summit would place Hangzhou at the centre of world events.“The economic benefits of hosting the Summit cannot be underestimated. Beyond the immediate need for construction jobs, an increase in awareness of the destination will attract business from all over the world.”The local government is determined to leverage on the G20 Summit and named 2015 as the “international convention year” for Hangzhou, by strengthening the connection between the city and international agencies to bring in more high-end international conventions before and after the Summit, aligned with the city’s goal to establish itself as an international conference destination.Hangzhou boasts more than 250 star hotels, including 23 five-star properties, listing No. 3 in China, behind Beijing and Shanghai. Many new hotels are set to open in Hangzhou within the next few years as the city attracts significant attention from international hotel flags such as Shangri-La, Conrad, Hilton, Marriott, and Hyatt, who are expanding their footprints in the city in tandem with the G20 buzz.Moreover, the Hangzhou International Expo Center in Binjiang District is about to open in this October, which willbe the largest MICE venue with 61 conference rooms and the city’s largest conference hall which spans 10,000 sqm.The city has recently gained acclaim as an important technology center with a number of entrepreneurs, including Jack Ma of Alibaba, located there as well as the West Lake Apple Store, arguably the largest Apple store in Asia, which opened in January 2015. The city is now known as the “Silicon Valley of China”, and is all set to welcome the world with “a unique style, a combination of history and modernity”, in China’s President Xi Jinping’s words.Mr. Roger Shu, MICE Manager, Business Events Hangzhou, China, echoes the sentiment.“In 2014, Hangzhou was the 3rd Convention City for the 4th consecutive year in ICCA rankings among all mainland cities, just behind Beijing and Shanghai,” Mr Shu said.“Hangzhou has been regarded throughout China as a national cultural and leisure capital, but the G20 Summit is set to be a big leap forward for the city’s meetings industry. I have no doubt this is a unique opportunity to showcase Hangzhou’s credentials as an international business destination as well as the world class facilities of the Convention Centre and the city’s infrastructure.“Therefore, Hangzhou will launch a global marketing operation through which hot topics of the specific fields are brought in, so as a more prominent image of the World MICE destination inspected by global professionals. Hangzhou is right on track for more global conferences and incentive activities, earning itself business reputation renowned worldwide.” MICE in HangzhouSource = Hangzhou Tourism Commissionlast_img read more

Norwegian Joy begins her journey to China

Norwegian Joy begins her journey to China

first_imgNorwegian Joy begins her journey to ChinaNorwegian Joy, Norwegian Cruise Line’s first custom-designed ship for the Chinese cruise market, began her journey to her home port of Shanghai, China this week, as she departed the MEYER WERFT shipyard in Papenburg, Germany on Sunday, March 26 for her approximately 14-hour long conveyance along the Ems River.Norwegian Joy’s river conveyance marks another key milestone in the ship’s highly anticipated delivery. Measuring 1,094 feet long and 136 feet wide, the ship is the second in the line’s Breakaway-Plus class and the first that was purpose-built for China.“We are thrilled Norwegian Joy has officially begun her journey to China,” said David Herrera, president of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings China. “As the first custom-built ship for the Chinese cruise market, she will offer a First Class at Sea experience for our guests and we cannot wait to officially welcome her to the fleet this June.”The 168,800–gross-ton Norwegian Joy departed MEYER WERFT at approximately 9:00 pm local time, making a narrow passage in reverse through the shipyard’s locks, passing the structure with just 1.2 meters separating the ship from the “bumpers” installed along the locks. The ship’s navigation team, led by experienced yard captains and River Ems pilots, included several navigation officers in charge of overseeing the bow maneuvers and others overseeing the movement of the stern. Several local authorities and other partners were also involved in supporting this precise maneuver.After passing through the sea lock in Papenburg, Norwegian Joy continued along the river, stern first. Due to the strong propulsion in the aft section of the vessel, traveling stern first helps with maneuverability, which is a key component when navigating the vessel through such narrow passages.Before reaching her final destination in Eemshaven, Netherlands on Monday evening, March 27, Norwegian Joy passed through additional narrow passages including a railway Bridge in Weener; Jann-Berghaus Bridge in Leer and Ems-Barrier in Gandersum. Upon arrival in the Dutch port of Eemshaven, Norwegian Joy will take on additional provisions and further crew members, before heading toward the North Sea for sea trials later this month.Following her delivery on April 27, Norwegian Joy sets sail for China, where she will be showcased through a grand inaugural port tour featuring one-day events at the ports of Qingdao, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong, as well as VIP partner cruises from Norwegian Joy’s home-ports of Shanghai and Tianjin. This unique showcase tour will give travel agents and valued partners across the region the special opportunity to experience all that Norwegian Joy has to offer leading up to the ship’s christening ceremony on June 27, led by her Godfather, ‘King of Chinese Pop’, Wang Leehom. The spectacular inaugural celebration in Shanghai will include an exclusive concert and overnight cruise for honored guests.Norwegian JoyBuilt at MEYER WERFT shipyard in Germany, Norwegian Joy is Norwegian Cruise Line’s first purpose-built ship customized for the Chinese cruise market. The name Norwegian Joy emphasizes the experience that the ship will offer, a promise that guests will ‘Experience Paradise on the Sea.’ Accommodating 3,850 guests with luxurious suites in the exclusive ship-within-a-ship complex, the new Breakaway-Plus Class Ship will debut in China in summer 2017.Designed to provide First Class at Sea experiences with onboard amenities that cater to the unique vacation desires of Chinese guests, Norwegian Joy will provide a multitude of VIP accommodations including The Haven by Norwegian®, the line’s exclusive, ship-within-a-ship suite luxury complex, which will also include an all-new Observation Deck that features 180 degree views, and a Concierge level, an all-new accommodations category which will provide a VIP experience and feature larger balcony staterooms. Accommodation offerings will also include staterooms designed specifically for families and a multitude of connecting staterooms, for extended families traveling together, as well as a wide array of mini-suite, balcony, ocean view and interior staterooms, many with virtual balconies.Norwegian Joy will offer engaging and innovative activities including a first at sea two-level competitive racetrack, an open-air laser tag course, thrilling simulator rides and interactive video walls at the Galaxy Pavilion as well as hover craft bumper cars, a state-of-the-art racing simulator and two multi-story waterslides. In addition, Norwegian Joy will house a tranquil open space park as well as the line’s largest upscale shopping district, complete with everything from exceptional duty-free shops to world-renowned global luxury brands.Source = Norwegian Cruise Linelast_img read more

We wereat about six [seconds] and we were still getting settled in, so we bangedthe timeout just to get an opportunity to snap well and get the kick asclean as possible.”Oops.Bailey had already seen his string of 26 consecutive made field goalssnapped when he missed a 53-yarder wide left on the Cowboys’ secondpossession of the game. He took the blame for the loss.“I understand why things happened the way they did. The clock wasrunning down. It is something we practice in practice quite a bit.

to be his final season in charge Scolari’s rampant men thrashed Guizhou Zhicheng 5-1 at home on Sunday to win the Chinese Super League (CSL) with two games to spare and underline Guangzhou’s status as the best team in the country once again Players of Guangzhou Evergrande lift up their head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari as theycelebrate after winning the Chinese Super League (CSL) AFP The 68-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season and his anticipated departure signals the end of a successful two-year stint that saw Evergrande win seven major trophies despite eschewing the lavish spending of rival teams There has been no official announcement on Scolari’s future but Chinese media say the well-travelled coach is expected to depart with the decorated Italian Carlo Ancelotti and Thomas Tuchel most recently with Borussia Dortmund both strongly linked with the post Guangzhou have appointed a series of big-name foreign coaches in recent years with the former Brazil Portugal and Chelsea boss Scolari taking over from Italian legend Fabio Cannavaro in June 2015 Cannavaro had replaced another Italian World Cup winner in Marcello Lippi who is now in charge of China’s improving

coaches and players We are more than a week into the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup and after thetwo previous editions that lasted four days each this edition certainly feels like one Making a return after nine years kabaddi’s premier tournament looksstronger bigger and better With twelve countries from six different continents the spread is great for the sport and despite a gulf in class between the participating nations the competition has been quite a spectacle so far The kabaddi caravan couldn’t have had a better start with Republic of Korea upsetting the sport’s pecking order and getting the better of hosts India However there haven’t been any further upsets and landslide wins have become the theme since then With the World Cup reaching it’s halfway mark the tournament has thrown up someaspects that show how the sport is placed on the global stage who are winners at it and who need to catch up Here are few takeaways at the mid-point of the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup: Defence is the best form of attack South Korean defence shackled Rahul Chaudhari in the opening game Defence is the best form of attack is an old cliche in sport that keeps popping up every now and then But in kabaddi it is pretty much an important aspect of the game The defense in kabaddi plays a big role in scoring points and not just saving them and the World Cup has gone a long way in highlighting this The high scoring matches are a clear indication thatthe defences have been all over the place throughout the course of the tournament From newcomers USA who had managed just two tackle points in their first two games to defending champions to giants India all have struggled with their defences at some point But if you look atthe points table and then at the teams with the the most tackle points per game it has great similarity Iran who have been by far the best defensive unit in the World Cup lead the way with 153 tackle points per game followed by India Japan and Republic of Korea At the halfway point it’s these four teams who sit in the semifinal qualifying spots England and Thailand the two third-placed teams in the group follow these four teams when it comes to average tackle points Thus it’s clear that it’s sound defences and not rampant raiding that’s helping teams lead the race for semifinal qualification Or to put it simply the best four teams in the competition are the ones with the top four defences Abundance of talent but absence of team work Poland’s Michal Spiczko has been very impressive for Poland in the raiding department The 2016 Kabaddi World Cup began with few household names with most of them donning the Indian colours However a week into the tournament a host of new faces have made a mark in the world of kabaddi From England’s Temi Tope Adewalure to Kenya David Mosambayi Poland’s Michal Spiczko or Thailand’s Khomsan Thongkham there hasn’t been shortage of talent on display in the tournament England’s Tope who is the tournament’s most successful raider with 46 raid points has won several hearts while Mosambayi’s excellent leadership and 30 all-round points to go with it are quite impressive as are Aruduzzaman Munshi’s all-round exploits for Bangladesh But teams possessing all these talented players have found it hard to mount a challenge The main reason for that has been their team’s over reliance on individual and lack of it on team work Kabaddi demands of a mix of individual brilliance and great team ethic and teams like England Kenya and Poland have failed in the latter aspect While their raiders have won points single-handedly the co-ordination and understanding required to forge a potent defence has been lacking Among the top ten raiders Jang Kun Lee is the only raider from the teams that sit in the top two places of each group clearly proving that there is no shortage of talent but a serious lack of cohesion in lowerteam that’s separating them from those at the top Rising from the shadows of India and Iran South Korea prove they are genuine contenders South Korean players celebrates after win the inaugural match PTI When the tournament began India and Iran dominated the talks when the title contenders were discussed Many Indian players highlighted Iran as their greatest threat Republic of Korea who had a few star from the Pro Kabaddi League were considered dark horses at best However in the very first game the Koreans shattered all pre-tournament notions and staged a great comeback win over favourites India The win for the Koreans was no fluke – they had strategy for every Indian player and executed to perfection Their raiders kept on chipping away points when star man Jang Kun Lee couldn’t fire in the beginning of the game The Korean defence hunted in packs all evening and tamed the likes of Rahul Chaudhari With five minutes to go when the Koreans seemed down and out Jang Kun Lee rose to the occasion and exploited weaknesses in the Indian defence to perfection It was an all-round effort and it was repeated against Argentina and Bangladesh Starting as favourites against Bangladesh the Koreans trailed till the final five minutes only to carve out a win in the dying minutes Team ethic aggression the resilience the Koreans have exhibited every quality of a champion The men in blue and red are out of the shadows of India and Iran and are ready to not just challenge but also beat them With the Koreans favourites to reach the final on 22 October expect them to give their opponents in that game a hard time Packed with PKL stars India remain less than sum of it’s parts Team India are yet to do full justice to their talent in the Kabaddi World Cup 2016 When the 26 Indian probables were named one thought India could name two teams out of them and both of them could reach the final Such was the quality among Indian ranks that the World Cup appeared a foregone conclusion But the ‘Dream Team’ as the Indian side packed with superstars from the PKL is called haven’t done justice to the talent that they possess While a defeat to Korea in the opening match left the hosts red-faced a big win over debutants Australiawasn’t enough for Anup Kumar’s side to convince it’s fans The Indian defence didn’t look the part in the first two games as the home side struggled to form crucial partnerships in defence In the raiding department too Indiafailed to develop a lethal partnership until the game against Bangladesh when Pardeep Narwal and Ajay Thakur took the opponents to the cleaners working brilliantly in tandem The Indian defence showed signs of gelling against Bangladesh as India produced a performance of note but the Balwant Singh-coached outfit are still to hit the heights they are capable of It may all come together for the defending champions as the tournament reaches it’s business end but for it’s first half India as an unit haven’t been equal to sum of it’s parts Quick starters are big winners India benefited from a quick and aggressive start against Australia in their second game Big one-sided victories have been the trend in the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup so far Teams have either fired on all cylinders or folded up rather tamely Only fourout of the 18 matches played so far have finished with the winner winning by a margin of more than seven points The key behind these lofty wins have been real quick starts by the winning teams We have often seen the team that races to a big lead early goes on to win the match handsomely Slow starters have often been punished and punished heavily Teams thus have struggled to break the momentum and script a comeback into matches with Korea against Bangladesh and Kenya against Poland being the only teams to win the game after trailing in the game by a huge margin at the start Lack of experience is a reason why teams haven’t been able to stop the rot once it’s started and completely fade away after a slow start Even in tight games teams who have had a sluggish start have suffered India who endured a slow start by their standards against Korea paid the price for handing early momentum to their rivals So at the halfway stage the keyto success has been simple Hit
