Fujita Kanko Expands its Tokyo Portfolio with Hotel Gracery Asakusa

Leading Japanese hotelier Fujita Kanko Inc. announced that it plans to open Hotel Gracery Asakusa in Tokyo in the fall of 2018. The hotel will be the tenth and newest property in the company’s Hotel Gracery group.

Asakusa, known for its venerable temples and shrines, traditional eateries, and artisan shops, is a popular sightseeing area for international visitors with its nostalgic downtown atmosphere reminiscent of old Tokyo. With easy access to/from Narita and Haneda airports and other key shopping/entertainment districts of Tokyo (16 minutes on subway to/from Ginza, four minutes on Tsukuba Express train to/from Akihabara), the 125-room hotel will provide a much needed base to explore Tokyo.

“While almost every international visitor to Tokyo comes to Asakusa to experience “Old Tokyo,” there aren’t many sizable hotels in the area,” said Akira Segawa, President and CEO of Fujita Kanko. “With the opening of Hotel Gracery Asakusa, we want to help international guests experience a historic part of Tokyo like locals.”

The hotel, conveniently located near the Asakusa subway station, will emphasize concierge service to provide local information and assist international visitors with various activities. Spacious guest rooms will all have separate toilets/bathrooms for additional comfort.

Notable Asakusa sites include Sensoji, Tokyo’s oldest temple built in the 7th century, Nakamise Dori, a long shopping street leading to Sensoji packed with traditional crafts, souvenirs and street food, and Hanayashiki, Japan’s oldest amusement park. Tokyo’s biggest traditional festival, Sanja matsuri, happens in Asakusa each May. The nearby Sumida River has been a favorite recreational spot for Tokyoites to enjoy river cruises and fireworks going back hundreds of years. Tokyo Skytree, the tallest tower in Japan with an observation deck, stands across the river.

Future scheduled Gracery openings include Hotel Gracery Seoul in 2018 and Hotel Gracery Taipei in 2019. Recently opened locations are in Naha (Okinawa), Kyoto, and Shinjuku (Tokyo) with the popular Godzilla-themed Hotel Gracery Shinjuku.

“As we prepare to launch our first commercial product in the U.S., now is the appropriate time to fully align our corporate name with our parent company, MTPC, the world’s second oldest pharmaceutical company with more than 300 years of experience advancing innovative treatments,” said Atsushi Fujimoto, President, Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma America. “We are honored to be a part of this strong and impressive heritage as we commit ourselves to continued innovation in the U.S. to meet patients’ unmet medical needs.”

Rising Costs, Declining Revenues Forcing Smaller Firms to Exit Municipal Finance Business, MUFG’s Head of Public Finance Says

Increased costs as an “unintended consequence” of regulatory reform are leading many small U.S. broker-dealers and financial advisors to abandon the municipal finance business, according to Kevin Dunphy, Managing Director and Head of Public Finance at Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. (MUFG).

Dramatically declining fees paid to underwriters and lower municipal bond issuance are other key reasons that small broker-dealers and financial advisors will continue to exit public finance, Mr. Dunphy added.

Mr. Dunphy made his remarks on July 18 in New York during the inaugural session of MUFG Explores, an issues-oriented series in which MUFG subject matter experts meet with journalists to discuss current newsworthy topics and trends.

“One of the biggest impacts of regulatory reform that I see – really as an unintended consequence – is the demise of the small municipal finance firm,” Mr. Dunphy said.

“These firms suffer disproportionally because the increasing regulatory costs consume a greater share of their revenue, significantly reducing profitability.

“Further, when you combine the increasing regulatory costs with declining underwriting spreads and lower issuance, firms’ margins are under severe pressure. The expectation for lower issuance will increase competition for the remaining deals and make matters even worse for these small firms.”

As the smaller firms struggle to effectively compete with their larger, deeper-pocketed rivals, a number of U.S. municipalities are in danger of losing their most knowledgeable and reliable financial experts, Mr. Dunphy noted. Many of these firms have particular expertise in local markets, leaving some municipalities without access to the bankers that best understand their history and the intricacies of their needs.

“New compliance requirements decrease the amount of time bankers and advisors can spend with their clients,” he said. “Ultimately, it will be the municipalities that bear the cost of regulations in the form of increased costs or rates, and the lack of supply.”

Mr. Dunphy has more than three decades of experience as a municipal banker, including 18 years at Bank of New York as the founder and Head of its Public Finance and the Government Banking Divisions. He joined MUFG in 2010.

How will we pay for infrastructure needs?

At the roundtable, Mr. Dunphy also discussed the need for infrastructure spending. “While it is refreshing to hear the new administration talk about infrastructure investment plans,” he said, “I am still waiting to understand how we will pay for it.”

Mr. Dunphy noted that legislators’ promises to upgrade the nation’s bridges, roads and tunnels have been largely more talk than action. “Over the years, Washington has kicked the can down the road and, as a result, America’s infrastructure is in dire need of repair, replacement, and new projects,” Mr. Dunphy said.

MUFG, one of the world’s largest financial institutions, is one of the biggest lenders in the public finance sector. Providing credit and complete banking services to governments, public authorities, and not-for-profits, MUFG has extended more than $11 billion of credit to public clients.

Future MUFG Explores roundtables are scheduled to delve into compelling subject areas including healthcare, retail, and Latin American finance.

Huawei Media Cloud Enables Omni-media Opportunities for TF1

Huawei provided the Huawei Media Cloud Solution, which enabled a private cloud IT platform for Television Francaise 1. The platform enables Omni-media content production and broadcasting anytime and anywhere.

“Huawei’s VDI technology enabled us to put workstation into the cloud and access it quickly. We can now operate the same application software in a convenient way, using a simple terminal. We have deployed a more efficient solution in the newsroom, allowing staff to work flexibly to drive a seamless Omni-media user-experience.″ Guillaume Lemoine, Senior Broadcast Architect, TF1 group.

Background

Founded in 1935, Television Francaise 1 is the largest TV station in France and one of oldest operating TV stations globally. In 1975, it was rebranded TF1 and was privatized in 1987. With many specialized cable TV stations, TF1 enjoys a 24% audience rating, making it the number-one TV station in Franceand one of the most popular in Europe. It has implemented some of the most advanced technology in Europe to ensure smooth running operations.

Challenges

TF1 uses digital and IP-based technology to produce and broadcast the news. Its network supports the production and broadcasting of news programs in high-definition (HD) or standard-definition. The traditional TV news and the Internet are mixing, while the traditional news production methods struggle to meet the requirements for a fast and seamless experience.

TF1 was challenged in the following ways:

  1. Low utilization of media assets:  Independent IT infrastructure for multiple channels stifled information sharing. If the news channel needed to use video resources from the sports channel, the user needed to utilize an additional server to copy the videos to the storage system. The process was time- and bandwidth-consuming.
  2. Frequent switchovers between office and production desktops affected efficiency: A journalist needed two desktops — one for processing emails and Internet searches, the other for media editing, which was usually located in another area. Journalist needed to move between two areas, which impeded ability to deliver timely news productions.
  3. Low resource utilization resulted in long Time-to-Market (TTM) for services and channels: TF1’s flexibility was hampered by existing infrastructure with isolated IT resources across major services, including ingestion, editing, broadcasting, media asset management, and content archiving. The delivery of new services was complex and delayed. The procurement of new hardware and software was lengthy.

“We had seven channels at different sites, but resources couldn’t be shared between them. To meet the growing demand for Omni-media services, we needed a unified news factory built on private cloud, similar to that of Shenzhen Media Group, to enable resource sharing and scalability. We wanted to evolve to new architecture that supported the sharing of media assets based on hybrid cloud,” said Nicolas, IT Architecture Director, TF1 Group.

Above all, TF1 was in urgent need of a converged platform that supported Omni-media services.

Solution

In March, 2016, Huawei provided an end-to-end integrated media cloud solution that covers underlying servers, upper-layer cloud platforms, and desktop software and hardware. Huawei Media Cloud Solution enabled a private cloud IT platform for TF1 to support media-service-defined IT resource pooling, and service automation. The platform enables Omni-media content production and broadcasting anytime and anywhere, bringing a convenient experience.

TF1 captured new opportunities:

Distributed storage enables efficient content sharing: Huawei converged resource pool adopts a distributed architecture and contains all media materials, which means internal high-speed data copying will no longer occupy bandwidth. With global data sharing between multiple channels, free data flow within the resource pool replaces traditional data migration between multiple systems, which significantly improves data access efficiency.

GPU + VDI unified OA platform for ingesting and editing, significantly improves news production efficiency: The desktop cloud system provides a solution with 80 GPUs and 160 VDIs. Each user is allocated two virtual desktops on the cloud, which not only satisfies the needs of email processing and HD news editing, but also ensures information security using DMZ security isolation technology.

Hyper-converged architecture provides IT resource pools and supports service automation, significantly reducing time required for service rollout: E9000, a hyper-converged architecture blade server, is used to achieve on-demand resource allocation and automatic scaling based on ISV service template, which improves deployment efficiency for HD editing, media broadcasting, on the media cloud (such as Dalet, a news-editing software; and Adobe, an image-processing software).

Benefits

Within 4 months, TF1 built a converged news production platform based on Huawei Media Cloud Solution, which supported current service requirements while enabling future development:

  • Access efficiency to shared media data has improved by 90%.
  • Full-time news production significantly improved efficiency by 50%.
  • TTM of news services has shortened by 50%.

Bilibili Macro Link: an ACG expo for the young Chinese generation

As temperatures reached 40 degrees Celsius, the convention center queue stretched for miles two hours before its opening in Shanghai. The sweating but eager and expectant young fans gathered patiently for the same destination, Bilibili Marco Link 2017 (BML).

Held by China’s biggest entertainment and pop-culture community bilibili, the carnival-style event ended on July 23rd and attracted more than 100,000 people as well as an audience of 10 million streaming online. bilibili is renowned for hosting China’s largest fan community of ACG – animation, comics and games, and BML has become a pilgrimage for ACG fans who have a chance to finally meet their peers and their favorite video creators on bilibili.

This year, BML was expanded to a three-day event. During the day, it hosted an exhibition called Bilibili World, where users of bilibili gathered offline to celebrate and share ACG culture while every night concerts were held with various themes, this year’s including BML-VR, BML-SP, and BML themes.

BML’s concert organisers invite video uploaders from bilibili and other artists to perform, and this year’s BML saw a huge surge in attendees compared to a comparatively paltry 800 people just five years ago. Created to build a space where fans can celebrate the culture of animation, BML is not only an opportunity to connect users with uploaders, but also to enrich their experience with ACGN animation. Everyone is part of show, with artists performing on stage while enthusiastic fans wave glow sticks rhythmically.

“Compared with the generation of their parents, those who were born in the post-90s and post-2000s in China are more financially secure and interested to indulge themselves in a colourful cultural life,” said Chen Rui, chairman of bilibili.

The three-day event invited nearly 400 guests from within China and abroad, as well as 400 notable video uploaders of bilibili to perform for ACG fans. bilibili has 1 million uploaders whose original creations account for nearly 70% of its content.

“They want a lot more diversified content that suits their individual tastes. The internet has made it possible for them to consume a huge amount of content from Japanese animation, games, to original videos created by fellow internet users,” said Chen of the young Chinese generation.

Though ACG was previously considered a sub-culture made up of a minority group, the scale of BML has shown the massive potential within the ACG market. This is representative of a major demographic shift that could well reshape the media and entertainment landscape within China and around the world, as this young generation will become the main consumers of digital entertainment by 2020, according to South China Morning Post.

For Demand Side Platforms (DSPs) and ad exchanges, every fraction of a millisecond counts when deciding how to respond to advertising opportunities.

To provide compelling and profitable advertising Adtech businesses operating real time bidding platforms need accurate information about end user’s devices and browsers. As header bidding grows in importance the ability to provide actionable intelligence quickly has never been more important. Being slow or getting the bid wrong eats into the bottom line.

51Degrees’ enhanced algorithm builds on existing patented techniques to generate device signatures which are faster to evaluate in real time without compromising their market leading accuracy or coverage. The enhancement is easy to deploy for developers as it uses the same interface as existing APIs.

For businesses processing 10s of billions of advertising events per day this enhancement will directly translate into both cost savings and profit compared to legacy regular expression character based solutions even when optimised with caching technology. Compact data files reduce memory consumption meaning smaller and cheaper virtual machine instances can be utilised. This is a significant benefit for businesses with 1000s of cloud server instances.

James Rosewell, CEO and Founder at 51Degrees, said: “51Degrees was quick to recognise the performance requirements for server side header bidding and the growth of programmatic advertising. Over the last year we’ve been re-engineered the device detection process from the ground up to meet the specific requirements of Adtech customers. I’m delighted we’re now unveiling this development to customers and prospects to trial. Any business using regular expression techniques with XML or JSON data files needs to join this free trial and experience for themselves the improvements 51Degrees has achieved in performance, accuracy and breadth. They won’t be disappointed.”

Rosewell adds: “Just consider this year alone we’ve added 202,418 device combinations to our database representing a major challenge for legacy suppliers who either need to compromise on device breadth or performance.** 2017 is the year to re-evaluate your device intelligence provider as the technology has improved significantly since 51Degrees entered the market in 2011.”

Cathay Pacific Introducing A350 To Newark Liberty International Airport

Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that its daily flight from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Hong Kong will switch from a Boeing 777-300ER to an Airbus A350-900 operation beginning on October 29, 2017.

One of 16 A350-900s delivered to the airline since its launch in 2016, the aircraft features a refreshed Business Class cabin as well as new Premium Economy Class and Economy Class seats. The A350 will also be deployed on one of three daily San Francisco – Hong Kong flights beginning on the very same day. The airline’s four flights per day from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) will continue to be operated by Boeing 777-300ER, which make up the majority of Cathay Pacific’s ultra long-haul fleet.

CX899 departs daily at 1:10am, arriving in Hong Kong the following day at 5:00am. This early morning arrival allows passengers to connect with every Cathay Pacific flight across Asia – including SingaporeBangkokKuala LumpurJakarta, and over 22 gateways in mainland China – without a lengthy layover in Hong Kong. The return flight, CX890, departs Hong Kong at 6:00pm (local time), arriving in Newarkat 9:40pm (same day).

“The A350-900 is unrivalled in terms of sustainability and passenger experience,” said Philippe Lacamp, Senior Vice President, Americas, Cathay Pacific. “Quietest among the aircraft types in its class and also 25% more fuel efficient, Cathay Pacific has again proven itself as a leader in airline eco-innovation, with the A350 in-flight carpets and passengers’ blankets made from recycled plastic, including salvaged fishing nets and plastic bottles.

“Dedication to choice and flexibility are hallmarks of Cathay Pacific’s commitment to its customers. The introduction of the A350 as part of our five daily flights from the New York Metropolitan Area, complementing the Boeing 777-300ER from JFK, delivers on this promise. Not only can customers choose from five different departure times across two airports, but for the first time, they will be able to factor in aircraft preference as well.”

The features of Cathay Pacific’s new A350-900 take the passenger travel experience to a new level. The design of many of the cabin features has been carefully considered to give passengers the best sleeping experience, the best entertainment, and the greatest control over how they want to use their individual space, whether for working or relaxation.  With its extra wide body, the aircraft offers more space and comfort, a quiet cabin, panoramic windows and LED mood lighting, contributing to a more comfortable and relaxing journey in all cabin classes.

The A350-900 Business Class seats build on the success of the airline’s award-winning long-haul Business Class product to create a memorable experience. Alongside a fully-flat bed, new features includes extra stowage space within easy reach and the personal service offered by a “Do Not Disturb” and “Wake-up Call” function in the entertainment system.

The Premium Economy Class and Economy Class seats also come with a number of new features, including dedicated tablet holders that make it more convenient for passengers to enjoy entertainment on their own devices, and exclusive power outlets and USB ports. Each Premium Economy Class seat has a fully integrated leg rest which, together with the ergonomically designed seat, allows more flexibility to adjust for optimal comfort. The six-way headrest in Economy Class is a proprietary design that provides better support and enhances sleeping comfort.

The new A350-900 inflight entertainment system is inspired by the airline’s latest design philosophy. The interactive user interface is contemporary and fresh looking. It is equipped with notable new interactive features which broaden the inflight entertainment options for passengers along with a wider screen in all classes. Connectivity is installed for the first time in a Cathay Pacific aircraft, allowing passengers, for a fee, to browse the internet, send and receive emails and connect on social media. Access to the Cathay Pacific website, a number of partner websites and three live TV news channels are available free of charge.

The A350-900 employs innovative technology and design, which improves not only passenger comfort, but also the efficiency, effectiveness and overall performance of the aircraft. Its advanced design, together with the latest generation of engines and the use of advanced construction materials – including carbon fiber composites – deliver a 25% improvement in operating costs overall when compared to previous-generation aircraft.

Cathay Pacific has taken delivery of 16 A350-900 aircraft, with an additional six on firm order, and 26 firm orders of the A350-1000.

China Metal Resources Utilization Limited Proposed Issue of HK$600 Million Convertible Bonds to China Huarong International and Prosper Rich

China Metal Resources Utilization Limited (“China Metal Resources” or “the Company“) (Stock Code: 1636.HK), China’s largest recycled copper products manufacturer, is pleased to announce that the Company entered into the Subscription Agreement with China Huarong International Holdings Limited (“China Huarong International”) and Prosper Rich Investments Limited (“Prosper Rich“) in relation to its proposed issue of 2-Year Convertible Bonds of HK$400,000,000 and HK$200,000,000 respectively.

Upon the satisfaction (or waiver) of the conditions under the Subscription Agreement, China Huarong International and Prosper Rich are eligible to convert ordinary shares of HK$0.10 each in the issued share capital of the Company at an initial Conversion Price of HK$2.990 per Share (subject to adjustment) respectively. The net proceeds from the issue of the Convertible Bonds will be approximately HK$582,000,000. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the issue of the Convertible Bonds to purchase raw material for the Company’s expansion of production.

As at 31 July 2017, China Huarong International and Prosper Rich hold 90,881,295 Shares and 814,074 Shares in the Company respectively. Assuming full conversion of the Convertible Bonds at their respective initial Conversion Price, the Convertible Bonds will be convertible into approximately 200,668,896 New Shares, representing approximately 8.13% of the issued share capital of the Company as at 31 July 2017 and approximately 7.52% of the issued share capital of the Company as enlarged by the issue of the New Shares.

China Metal Resources announced positive profit alert earlier. As compared to the net loss for the same period of 2016, the Company expected that its interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2017 will record a net profit. Such expectation was primarily attributable to a significant increase in the Company’s revenue to not less than RMB4,000 million for the six months ended 30 June 2017 as compared to RMB1,464 million for same period of 2016 as well as an increase in government grants and subsidies and the improvement in the trade receivables from sales of the Company’s copper products.

Mr. Yu Jianqiu, Chairman of the Company, said, “The announcement about positive profit alert of China Metal Resources shows that the Company has enhanced the production utilization rate and successfully turned the loss into profit. As for the issuance of convertible bonds this time, it demonstrates a strong recognition from investors. Not only will it enhance the Company’s capital structure and liquidity and to finance the Company’s future development and expansion, but it will also significantly facilitate the Company to further consolidate its leading position in the scrap copper industry.  We will continue to strive to maximize the return for our shareholders.”

IoT Professionals in India Receive Over 76% Higher Salaries Than IT Professionals: Study by IoT India Magazine and Jigsaw Academy

 

A recent study titled ‘IoT India Salary Study 2017’ carried out by IoT India Magazine, a part of Analytics India Magazine Pvt Ltd, in association with Jigsaw Academy suggests that the salaries of IoT professionals in India is around 76% higher than that of IT professionals. The median salary of IoT professionals is INR 15.2 lakh compared to INR 8.65 lakh per annum in IT sector.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20161117/440618LOGO )

The median salary of IoT professionals for the year 2017 was found to be INR 15.2 lakh per annum across all experience levels and skill sets. IoT being a relatively new entrant, professionals in the area commanding higher salaries can be attributed to lack of readily available talent.

Interestingly, only 33% of IoT professionals have salaries under INR 6 lakh per annum as opposed to 58% in the IT sector. The study also highlights that 16% of IoT professionals in India earn in the salary bracket of INR 10-25 lakh per annum. This number for IT professionals is 17%.

The city-wise trend suggests that Delhi-NCR provides the highest salary in IoT at INR 17.3 lakh per annum, followed by Mumbai at INR 16.7 lakh per annum. The study also points that 44% of IoT professionals in Chennai earn less than INR 6 lakh per annum; followed by Pune, where around 39% professionals fall in the same bracket.

As for the experience level, almost 92% of freshers in the IoT field fall under the INR 6 lakh per annum salary bracket. A transition from each experience level bracket to a higher experience level can lead to an almost 50% jump in salary.

Salary trend by functional area in IoT domain indicates that a position in Application Programming pays an average of INR 11 lakh per annum, whereas a job in the Engineering Design and Systems Programming department pays INR 10.5 lakh and INR 8 lakh per annum respectively.

The study hints that IoT will account for over 10% of all data generated. With innovations in smart cities and in healthcare, IoT is likely to go mainstream in the coming future. According to the study, few of the job roles that will emerge in IoT are: Chief Internet of Things Officer, Robot Coordinator, Neural Implant Tech Expert and Ethics Officer, among others.

Sarita Digumarti, COO and Founder, Jigsaw Academy said, “I strongly believe that the IoT era is going to transform businesses and people everywhere, especially in India. The ability to link countless machines wirelessly, to enhance human interaction etc., IoT has opened limitless possibilities for ideas that will completely change how we live and work.”

“The IoT Salary Study provides a solid foundation to understand the state of the IoT job market in India, along with current job roles. It also equips readers with a sense of direction and growth in the rapidly expanding IoT field,” she added.

Bhasker Gupta, CEO and Founder, IoT India Magazine said, “One of the major contributions made by IoT has been in the form of career opportunities. New jobs such as Application Developer, IoT Product Manager and IoT Cloud Architect, among others, have become available in this sector.”

“To have a detailed understanding of the IoT job scenario in India, we conducted the IoT India Salary Study 2017 in association with Jigsaw Academy, which is a comprehensive sum of all the details that you would want to know as an IoT professional,” he added. The increasing demand for IoT professionals and companies extensively hiring in the IoT domain suggests an optimistic future for professionals looking to dive into this industry.

Frost & Sullivan Analyses Impact of IR DRG Implementation on Healthcare Delivery in Dubai

Healthcare providers in Dubai must prepare for the imminent shift to international refined diagnosis-related group (IR DRG) system or be caught off-guard when pricing structures change in 2018. The new structure will completely transform insurance companies’ payment approach to healthcare providers. It aims to eliminate over prescription by moving the burden of cost to the provider itself. In short, providers will be paid a fixed base rate, multiplied by a factor for each DRG code.

“To make their margins, healthcare providers now have to work backwards from the price they will get paid. They will also need to firmly control their costing for each procedure. Failure to do so will result in lower or no margins. Moreover, this must be done without compromising the quality of care and outcome,” said Frost & Sullivan Healthcare and Life Sciences Senior Consultant Vivek Shukla.

Frost & Sullivan’s Healthcare and Life Sciences team, with its expansive coverage and expertise of the global healthcare industry, finds that even the most efficient hospitals will have areas of improvement when it comes to overall cost optimization.

As fixed prices replace fee-for-service, and price-based costing substitute cost-based pricing, providers must prepare early to garner maximum benefit. Healthcare providers that are clear about cost structures and effectively manage without giving up on quality will gain the competitive edge over contemporaries. Healthier margins mean higher capacity to invest in better doctors and staff, brand building, and equipment. This will enhance the perception, quality and outcomes of hospitals, giving them an even higher strategic ground.

To comply with the new insurance environment and stay profitable when the prices get fixed for various procedures, healthcare providers must:

  • Immediately deploy costing tools: As base rates and multiples will be assigned on the basis of rates during and before the shadow-billing phase, costing tools can offer clarity on the margins of the procedures being performed and strengthen cost management
  • Scrutinize and reset processes: Everything from operational flows, supply chain, work force utilization, and equipment maintenance must be scanned to assess obvious and hidden cost drivers for corrective action
  • Rethink service mix and refresh marketing: As efficiencies in various departments or service lines are streamlined, the service mix may change, compelling fresh marketing efforts and realignment of future plans
  • Re-engineer budgets: The way budgets are created and revenues and costs allocated will change as the basis for future calculations are altered

Overall, transitioning to IR DRG will require months of careful preparation. As such, market opportunities will emerge around solutions to support hospitals in cost reduction and revenue cycle management.

Thailand Promotes Partnerships for a Sustainable World

By sharing its Sufficiency Economy Philosophy as a model, Thailand is helping other developing nations achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, stated.

Of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, the final goal – revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development – may be the most compelling of all. Because the only way we can build a better world is by working together. So many of the challenges we face, from climate change to eradicating diseases, are borderless. Although we measure results on a nation-by-nation basis, unless nations can find ways to work together for the good of our planet and its peoples, our future will ultimately be unsustainable.

As the 2016 chair of the Group of 77 – the largest coalition of developing nations at the United Nations – the Kingdom of Thailand made its primary mission to enhance cooperation between North and South and also to strengthen South-South Cooperation. This exchange of resources, technology and knowledge between developing countries, often referred to as the Global South, can be complementary to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. As chair country, Thailand worked to transform this vision into action. Even before its chairmanship, Thailand had been sharing its own model of development among countries grappling with the challenges of a changing world. That model is known as the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy.

Initiated by the late monarch King Bhumibol Adulyadej through decades of working to uplift the nation’s poor people, the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy is an approach to development and to life that is based on moderation, reasonableness and prudent decision-making. It prescribes living in harmony with the environment and making wise use of resources in order to build resilience and wellbeing. Its principles can be applied to farmers, communities, businesses and nations. In the context of the philosophy, sufficiency does not mean living in isolation. It calls for communities to work together for the common good – the essence of partnerships.

Thailand understands the value of working together. Once a country in need of development assistance, Thailand is now a donor nation, providing fund and sharing its resources of knowledge, technical assistance, scholarships and capacity building with less developed nations. In 2015, the Kingdom provided $78 million in Official Development Assistance to other countries through the Thailand International Cooperation Agency, while foreign direct investment surpassed $58 billion, with much of it going to the developing world.

While generous funding is important, even more value lies in Thailand’s willingness to share its knowledge and experience with the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy. To date, representatives from 105 countries have participated in workshops, seminars and training courses hosted by Thailand on the philosophy and its applications.

Thailand has been partnering with several countries to help them implement their own development projects based on Sufficiency Economy Philosophy principles and methods. Timor-Leste is employing decision-making processes based on the philosophy’s framework for sustainable agriculture projects and to support the launch of small businesses. Cambodia has established a Sufficiency Economy village as a pilot for more communities. Indonesia is using sufficiency principles shared by Thai advisors for ecological farming projects that raise incomes and quality of life for villagers. And neighboring Myanmar is working with Thai partners to establish sustainable development centers and rural development projects on sufficiency principles.

Far beyond Asia, the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy is being adopted for the benefits of local peoples. In the southern African nation of LesothoThailand has supported the establishment of a center to introduce integrated farming and agro-forestry farming that is protecting that nation’s environment while providing greater food security and livelihoods for participants. Several nations in South America have also been applying approaches based on the philosophy.

“Development approaches like the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy of Thailand, that promotes development with values, which not only complement the [SDG] agenda, but our own national development framework, will certainly help us in implementing the SDGs,” Guillame LongEcuador’sMinister of Foreign Affairs, told the UN General Assembly last year.

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 will require commitment and perseverance. For some countries in the Global South with limited resources and capacities, the tasks at hand may appear enormous. Despite its own limitations, Thailand achieved the Millennium Development Goals ahead of schedule, owing a significant degree of that success to the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy. Thailand is willing to partner with any country seeking knowledge, expertise and a proven path to sustainable development. Because there is only one way to build a better world – and that way is together.
