SHENZHEN, China, Nov. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — “No matter where you are, the culture of Shenzhen is a part of you,” said entrepreneur Nael Hailemariam from Ethiopia who completed Open FIESTA’s Internet+Innovation Design program in 2021 at Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School (Tsinghua SIGS). Nael is the co-founder and CEO of Chapa Financial Technologies S.C. His experiences at SIGS and in Shenzhen have shaped his success as an entrepreneur.

In 2018, Nael entered Open FIESTA to study Internet+Innovation Design, which is a master’s program oriented to advanced interdisciplinary fields in information technology and innovative design. “Open FIESTA gave me freedom.” While at Open FIESTA, Nael took advantage of opportunities to combine his background in engineering with management and leadership.

In early 2020, the National Bank of Ethiopia issued a directive allowing non-banks to offer digital financial services. This was Nael’s chance to bring what he learned during his studies in China to a market he knew well, his home country of Ethiopia. This was also the beginning of Chapa. He devoted himself to bringing the advantages of an online payment infrastructure to Ethiopia.

Nael’s company Chapa successfully received a license from the National Bank of Ethiopia to work with private businesses in May of this year. “Shenzhen speed is also part of the value of our company,” said Nael. Moving forward, Nael and his team will continue drawing upon the Shenzhen culture of innovation and efficiency to expand their business into East Africa and eventually to the rest of the continent. His social commitment remains steadfast: he will continue to be an impact-maker and help improve the economy of his country.

HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam, Nov. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Vinamilk, Vietnam’s leading dairy brand and the 6th most valuable dairy brand in the world, recently took part in the Global Dairy Congress Asia 2022 held in Singapore. Vinamilk was invited to share its insights and expertise in building up its beloved brand, Dielac, an infant formula brand that has accompanied generations of Vietnamese consumers for 33 years.

Vinamilk's Executive Director of Marketing - Mr. Nguyen Quang Tri at the congress

The Global Dairy Congress Asia 2022 was attended by more than 250 guests from organizations and enterprises in the dairy industry of more than 10 Asian countries, focusing on the latest trends in the dairy industry, new business models, advanced technologies etc.

Setting out to address consumers’ needs and to build trust, Vinamilk has overcome many challenges, such as limited production equipment as well as consumers’ lack-of-confidence in local dairy brands to shape an effective strategy for Dielac launched 33 years ago based on three pillars: product quality, innovation, and love.

To fairly compete with foreign well-established dairy brands, Vinamilk focuses on cooperating with international organizations specializing in the application of micronutrients and microbiology to develop new products, diversifying the product portfolio towards meeting the increasing demands of consumers. Dielac products are also supplemented with various types of nutrients, which are similar to breast milk and suitable for the physical and nutritional needs of Vietnamese children.

Production lines at Vietnam Powdered Milk Factory

To meet consumers increasing demand, Vinamilk established a modern powdered milk factory in Binh Duong in 2013, with a capacity of up to 54,000 tons of products per year, cementing the esteemed position of Dielac in consumer minds.

“Building brand love in the dairy industry requires a great deal of attention because nutritional products for children must adhere to food safety and meet international standards,” shared Nguyen Quang Tri, Executive Director of Marketing at Vinamilk.

The “Dielac brand love” has been built from love – from the hearts of Vietnamese parents wanting the best for their children; from the hearts of the product developers and brand builders as Vietnamese people with a desire to support Vietnamese generations standing shoulder-to-shoulder to their foreign counterpart; and from the heart of Vinamilk – an entrepreneur that determines to build Vietnam dairy industry reaching international level.

Generations of Vietnamese parents have trusted Dielac brand

The importance of building a relationship between the consumer and a dairy processor is through its brand. We know we have effective marketing that builds consumer interest and understanding of the value and health benefits of dairy products. But at the end of the day consumers will buy a product and that’s why it’s so important to have a brand that is strong, recognizable, but trustable.” added Caroline Emond, General Director of the World Dairy Federation.

The journey of Vinamilk Dielac, the first infant formula brand produced by a Vietnamese enterprise, goes hand in hand with the impressive growth of the company. Since its launch back in 1989, the Dielac brand has become a nutritional solution trusted by Vietnamese consumers. These products were the first to be exported and have remained an important SKU in the company’s export portfolio.

About Vinamilk

Founded in 1976, Vinamilk is the leading dairy company in Vietnam which is listed among the top 40 largest nutrition companies in the world by revenue and the top 10 of the world’s most valuable dairy brands. Having grown into a juggernaut of the dairy industry in the past 46 years, Vinamilk is now valued at more than USD$2.8 billion.

Lancement d’une exposition et d’une présentation internationale (Afrique) d’échanges culturels et artistiques

DAR ES SALAM, Tanzanie, 22 novembre 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Le 17 novembre, l’exposition et la présentation de l’échange international d’art et de culture (Afrique) « Découvrir la passion dans le monde », organisée conjointement par le département provincial de la culture et du tourisme de Zhejiang et le gouvernement populaire municipal de Jinhua, ainsi que par le bureau de la culture, de la radio, de la télévision et du tourisme de Jinhua, a été mise en ligne sur les sites Internet des autorités touristiques et des principaux médias de Tanzanie, de Djibouti, du Zimbabwe, d’Éthiopie et d’autres pays africains, sur les sites Internet de quelques centres culturels chinois en Afrique, sur les sites Internet en anglais de Zhejiang China, InZhejiang et sur d’autres grandes plateformes médiatiques de communication à l’étranger.

Cette activité a marqué les débuts de l’opéra Wu, la culture traditionnelle de Jinhua, en Afrique. Elle présente en ligne le patrimoine et les caractéristiques de l’art contemporain de l’opéra Wu, dans le but de renforcer les échanges et la coopération culturels et touristiques entre le Zhejiang et l’Afrique, et de promouvoir la compréhension mutuelle et l’amitié entre ces deux peuples

Sur le thème « Découvrir la passion dans le monde », cette activité signifie que l’Afrique et la Chine ont toutes deux une passion pour l’art et la beauté de la vie. Les quatre parties, à savoir « Percussion entre le ciel et la Terre », « Chanter pour le monde », « Dépeindre toutes les formes de vie » et « Danser pour la vie », présentent, à travers des scènes en direct, le charme de l’opéra traditionnel Wu et des danses africaines sous tous leurs aspects.

La province du Zhejiang et l’Afrique possèdent toutes deux de riches ressources, des cultures diverses et des populations chaleureuses et ouvertes. Bien que l’épidémie actuelle ait freiné les échanges mutuels, la culture et l’art sont le langage universel dans le monde. Le département provincial de la culture et du tourisme du Zhejiang, le gouvernement populaire municipal de Jinhua et le bureau de la culture, de la radio, de la télévision et du tourisme de Jinhua, en organisant l’exposition et la présentation en ligne, partagent la beauté des éléments culturels et des créations artistiques du Zhejiang. Nous espérons qu’après la fin de l’épidémie, les Africains pourront se rendre dans la province du Zhejiang pour y découvrir la culture, le tourisme et l’art.
