Zubin Foundation Launches Diversity List & Community Connectors 2017

Hong Kong, SAR, April 5, 2017 /ChinaNewswire.com/ – The Zubin Foundation today launched Diversity List & Community Connectors 2017. Building on the success of Diversity List 2016 (5 out of 16 candidates has been appointed to government advisory committees), Diversity List 2017 profiles 22 individuals across various professions who have been through a screening process with Spencer Stuart, a leading recruitment firm and partner on the project.

“Since 21 March 2016, 5 new appointments have been given to the 16 candidates. I applaud the HKSAR government – this is a tremendous milestone for ethnic minorities. The population of ethnic minorities is young in age and is an important talent pool at a time when Hong Kong has a rapidly ageing population. This population brings local knowledge, self-defines with a Hong Kong identity and is committed to staying in Hong Kong. This population should be included in advisory committees of our government – but also on NGO boards of those organisations that address ethnic minority issues.”, said Shalini Mahtani, Founder of The Zubin Foundation.

The 22 individuals named today as part of Diversity List 2017 and the 5 Community Connectors come from a wide range of professional and personal backgrounds. Alice Au, Board Director of Spencer Stuart, partner on this project said, “Along with the base criteria we also evaluated the candidates based on attributes we use for board candidates. This is a group of hardworking, talented, dedicated and passionate people many of whom have endured adversity as minorities but persevered, who have gone on to make significant contributions to their professions and communities. This is a group of people who are role models, not only for ethnic minorities groups but also for the general population in Hong Kong.”

Mr. Matthew Cheung, Chief Secretary of Administration of the Hong Kong SAR Government was the official guest to commemorate the Launch of the Diversity List & Community Connectors 2017 and deliver the opening remarks. “Hong Kong is home to a diverse and multi-racial community with more than 200 000 ethnic minority people choosing to settle here. I truly appreciate that many ethnic minorities, having been here for generations, play important roles in shaping the city’s history. And many indeed contribute to making our home a better place to live in. We embrace the value of racial equality that makes us an inclusive and strong society. We appreciate the good work of think tanks like The Zubin Foundation, which have conducted numerous research studies on ethnic minorities in Hong Kong and put forward constructive recommendations for policy makers and private organisations alike. The Government will continue to develop Hong Kong into a socially inclusive society.” said Mr. Matthew Cheung.

The Zubin Foundation started the initiative in 2016 based on the finding of our research ‘The Status of Ethnic Minorities in Hong Kong, 1997 to 2014’ authored by Puja Kapai at The University of Hong Kong Centre for Comparative and Public Law. The findings showed ethnic minorities suffering particularly in education and employment. “It got me to thinking, are ethnic minorities included in government decision making?” said Mahtani. The Zubin Foundation then conducted research to analyse the composition of HKSAR Government advisory bodies. They found that in 100 publically available advisory bodies, with 1,454 members, only 1.9% of advisory body positions were held by ethnic minorities and 79% of the ethnic minorities serving on Government advisory bodies were “White”. “Clearly there is work to be done,” adds Mahtani.

Diversity List & Community Connectors 2017 was launched on the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination with over 150 attendees from the Indian, Pakistani, Filipino, Thai, Nepalese, Bangladeshi communities, etc.

剧作家终于当家做主

17年03月20日 比特币米编辑 | |

中国北京 2017年03月20日 /ChinaNewswire.com/ 中国第一家以剧作家为中心的戏剧、影视创作与制作公司–雏菊梦工厂文化有限公司今年二月份经国家工商总局核名,近日获得营业执照。雏菊梦工厂由雏菊机构所属北京菊华文化艺术产业投资基金、世贸天阶投资集团有限公司和北京同青戏匠坊文化有限公司三家联手组建,致力于为全国优秀作家建立戏剧和影视的创作发展基地。

与持续增长的经济总量相比,中国亟需加快提高文化软实力。中国的文化产业在GDP中占比不足4%,世界上的发达国家平均占比10%,美国则高达25%。在全球的文化产业中,美国的文化产业份额占了43%,欧盟占了34%,中国在全球文化产业中才占3%,日本占到了10%,韩国占到了6%,这个比例与我们这样一个人口、资源、地理大国相比是不相匹配的,与我们一个冀望于崛起的世界大国亦相去甚远。

现今文化领域争相引进西方的舞台作品和戏剧、影视技术,而忽视了中国本土创作人才和原创作品的培养,造成了文化产业领域形式豪华浮夸,内容干瘪肤浅的现状。形式有余内涵不足是当今文化产业发展的瓶颈。比如,戏剧和影视不行是因为剧本不行,剧本不行最重要的原因是作家没有话语权和主导权。

旅美剧作家李同青博士认为,欲发展文化软实力必须首先发展富有中国文化内涵的高质量作品。目前中国文化产业发展除了体制障碍外,最大阻力之一是作家在戏剧和影视产业里缺少应有的主导权和话语权。古今中外文化进步都是以作家为里程碑,戏剧更是如此。剧作家是戏剧和影视发展的原动力。雏菊梦工厂就是要在市场上建立以作家为中心的根据地,点星星之火,造燎原之势。

中国文化底蕴深厚,内容广博,意境与哲理深远,是世界文化的金矿。据了解,雏菊梦工厂的目标是以作家为中心,只引进西方的创作技术技巧,集百老汇、好莱坞和迪斯尼成功模式为一体,致力于用现代最先进技术技巧来发展富有本土文化韵味的原创戏剧、影视和动漫等文化产品,赶超世界先进水平。这样才能提高文化产业在GDP中的比例,同时让中国的文化产品走向世界。 “

雏菊梦工厂第一演出季计划以剧作家李同青先生的五部现有舞台剧作品起步。其笑剧《第四者晚宴》于2008年由宁静、王思懿、高亚麟和洪剑涛主演开始,至今已经由四个剧组在北京、天津和济南成功制作演出数百场。人物喜剧《我爱你Maybe》去年由天津人艺制作演出,获得市场成功。同时雏菊梦工厂准备建立剧作家剧院,在全国选拔编剧人才,用西方的剧本写作技术技巧培训新剧作家,发展新原创剧目。

据悉,雏菊梦工厂也正在运作笑剧《第四者晚宴》的电影改编,寻求同电影制作发行公司建立长期战略合作。

央行主管称比特币可能存在泡沫 需反洗钱监管指引

 作为国际上对区块链技术较为成功的应用,比特币从出现之日起,便伴随着“正邪”两面的争议声。今年1月以来,比特币价格再次冲高之后,人民银行营业管理部和上海总部牵头,先后多次对国内的比特币交易平台进行联合检查,指出部分平台存在的问题,并责令其清理整改。

3月13日上午,第一财经记者在全国人大江苏代表团驻地专访了全国人大代表、人民银行营业管理部主任周学东。谈及监管机构目前对于比特币的态度,周学东告诉记者,对于区块链技术的创新,总体上鼓励和支持,但是用区块链技术去搞一个泡沫,肯定是不支持的。“有一阵子比特币炒作的泡沫确实太大了。”他称。

3月13日上午江苏团第三小组审议

他表示,接下来会陆续出台进一步的监管措施,其中包括了关于反洗钱的监管指引。目前该指引已向比特币交易平台征求意见。

比特币炒作的泡沫太大

根据国外网站Bitcoinity.org 3月13日的数据,中国比特币交易平台Okcoin(币行)的交易量已经降至全球市场份额的9.26%,排名第三;另一家平台比特币中国的市场份额占5.59%,排名第七;排在第一位的是位于香港的平台bitfinex,占比为16.47%。全球主要比特币交易平台的日均交易量约为68万枚左右。

但是,就在两个月之前,情况却截然不同。今年1月初,比特币价格从去年的低点4000多元,冲高到8800多元。全球主要比特币交易平台的日均成交总量从60万枚放大至600万枚左右,并一度突破1300万枚。其中,来自中国的比特币中国、火币网和OKCoin三家平台就占成交总量的98%以上。

“有一阵子,对比特币炒作的泡沫确实是太大了。”周学东对第一财经表示,“如果是区块链技术的创新,国家肯定是鼓励和支持的,但是要用区块链技术去搞一个泡沫,肯定是不鼓励的。”

周学东告诉第一财经,中国的市场与国外不同。首先,中国的投资者基数非常大,尤其是年轻人,他们对技术的创新非常敏感,往往愿意去投资,当然也愿意承担一定的风险。不过,比特币的交易风险还是比较大的。

实际上,经过检查发现,比特币真实的交易量并没有那么多,主要是有一些机构和投资者通过高频交易,做“对敲”,即制造虚假的交易,“刷单”,做大业务量。为什么要这样做?因为有一些PE、风险投资者希望借此做大市场份额,吸引投资者的关注和投资。

经过了前一段时期的集中检查,未来我国监管机构是否要将比特币纳入常态监管?

周学东对第一财经记者表示,“有经济学家认为,这就是一个泡沫,破灭是迟早的事情。但是,从技术角度来说,比特币以区块链技术为底层技术,是一个较为成功的应用。另外,有些国家已经承认了比特币的合法地位,并可以作为支付工具购买商品,也就是认可了它的价值。这样来说,比特币有可能会继续存在下去。”

他指出,目前,关于监管问题,国际国内对于比特币的看法不一,有的国家认为无需监管,持不监管立场。但不管怎样,从中国国情出发,从对公众负责的角度来讲,比特币等网络虚拟商品交易平台,的确要有一定的监管。

将出台反洗钱监管指引 未来或定性为商品类交易平台

目前,国内关于比特币的监管文件,只有2013年12月5日央行联合其他四部委发布的《关于防范比特币风险的通知》(289号文),规定现阶段各金融机构和支付机构不得开展与比特币相关的业务,不得以比特币为产品或服务定价。

周学东透露,接下来陆陆续续会有一些更加具体的监管政策出台,比如关于反洗钱方面,会有一个监管指引推出。该指引已在征求比特币交易平台的意见。另外,参与监管的机构不仅仅是央行,目前比特币已经纳入了全国互联网金融整治的范畴,会有多个部门共同参与协调监管。

“对于交易平台的监管,不是单一部门的单一监管,一定是综合的。各部门从各自职责的角度都参与进来,实施功能监管。比如说税收的问题,肯定是税务部门监管;超范围经营的问题,工商部门监管;涉及虚假宣传的问题,从《广告法》执法的角度,也是工商部门监管。”周学东说。

今年1月开始,央行营管部对比特币交易平台进行了持续的现场检查,两个多月来,陆续通报了相关平台存在的问题,比较突出的是两个方面的问题:一是部分机构涉嫌违法从事金融业务,包括融资融币、连续交易、集中撮合等;二是这些机构基本上还没有建立反洗钱的内控制度和内控措施。

周学东对第一财经记者强调,现有的比特币交易平台并不能称为之交易所,只是一个网站,一个交易平台。“如果是交易所的话必须经过行政许可,由国家有关部门批准才可以。不少人把比特币等网络交易平台当作交易所,实际上这是两码事。”他称。

更进一步而言,他认为,“未来如果是定性为商品类的交易平台,则需要地方来批准。如果想成为交易所,则需要证券部门甚至国务院来批准。但是,比特币作为一种网络虚拟商品,交易所被批准的可能性并不大。”他建议,从长远来看,一定要纳入地方管理的商品类交易平台的监管范围,由地方金融办(局)实施主体监管或机构监管;人民银行分支机构、证监局、保监局、工商局、税务局等实施功能监管。

与此同时,国内现存的交易平台的格局或许也会逐渐发生变化。周学东表示,目前国内几家规模最大的比特币交易平台,如果未来继续合法存在的话,市场肯定会呈现出一定的集中,有些机构的市场份额会提高;而有一些小机构,面对严格的监管,可能赚不到什么钱,因此将会丧失生存空间。早前,大多数平台都是打擦边球,靠收取资金占用费,也就是通过融资融币的方式赚钱。现在看,这些做法都是违规的。

周学东指出,从短期来看,也要划几条红线,比如不得采取杠杆交易、融资融币,不得采取免交易手续费的方式推高交易量、操纵交易价格,不得违反反洗钱规定或者参与洗钱,不得违反外汇管理规定,不得将比特币作为支付工具代替法定货币来用于支付结算等,不得偷逃税款,不得进行虚假宣传或进行非法传销,也不得违规开展证券、期货等金融业务。

China Money Network Launches China Top 10 AI Ranking

chinamoneynetwork-ai-ranking

Hong Kong, China, March 10, 2017 /ChinaNewswire.com/ – China Money Network Limited, the go-to source of Chinese smart investments and tech innovation news for millions of global investors, today launches the China Top 10 AI Ranking to highlight the country’s finest artificial intelligence companies.

China’s best artificial intelligence companies are engaged in a variety of industries including image recognition, voice recognition, robotics and healthcare. These companies, backed with billions of venture capital and staffed by an army of research staff, have a real chance to rival U.S. technology leadership if they continue to invest in research and development.

“There has never been a more exciting time in China’s technology sector, and we are launching the China Top 10 AI Ranking to capture those emerging technology giants that may potentially reshaping our future,” said Nina Xiang, executive editor and co-founder of China Money Network. “Hundreds of millions of people in China have used tools and functions facilitated by these tech unicorns, and their impact will only grow rapidly in the coming years.”

Chinese authors already pen more academic papers on deep learning, a key AI category, than writers in the U.S. By Sinovation’s estimates, around 43% of the most influential AI papers, taking up 55.8% of total quotations in the field, were authored by Chinese nationals or people of Chinese descent.

Venture funding in AI companies has exploded. In the 12 months ending June 30, 2016, 202 Chinese AI start-ups raised around RMB6.8 billion (US$1 billion) in total, a record high. The number of AI companies receiving venture funding and their aggregate venture financing during 2015 and 2016 outstripped both aggregate deal volume and deal value for all previous years combined, according to a research report co-authored by Netease. In comparison, over 550 startups using AI as a core part of their products raised US$5 billion in venture funding globally in 2016, according to data from CB Insights.

The China Top 10 AI Ranking is based on a simple metric: Total venture financing raised and revealed by each company. The quality of the investors in terms of their track record, performance and industry reputation are also considered. Government capital is not included as it may not be purely commercially driven. Only private companies are included. Those affiliated with publicly listed companies are excluded as well.

The final top ten list includes three voice recognition companies and two facial recognition companies, indicating strong demand by Chinese companies from refrigerator makers to smartphone manufacturers eager to incorporate these functions into their products. Three companies are robotics firms, as China’s strong manufacturing capabilities make the country an ideal place for making consumer-facing family robots. One company is in the healthcare sector while another provides AI-enabled marketing services.
