The Corporate Engine Powering VinFast's Global Push

HANOI, VIETNAM - Media OutReach Newswire - 19 July 2024 - In a bold move against the prevailing headwinds in the electric vehicle (EV) industry, VinFast, the young Vietnamese EV manufacturer, is forging ahead with its ambitious global expansion plans. While major players like Apple have recently abandoned their decade-long pursuit of an electric vehicle, and others are scaling back their ambitions, VinFast remains undeterred. Having already established a presence in the U.S., Canada, and Southeast Asia, the company is now setting its sights on the Middle Eastern market.

"Bring In The Wine" — Fusing Poetry and Colours SHANGHAI TANG Unveils 2024 Autumn-Winter Collection

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach Newswire - 19 July 2024 - SHANGHAI TANG unveils its 2024 Autumn-Winter Collection, drawing inspiration from the ancient Chinese poet Li Bai's "Bring In The Wine" ("???", Qiang Jin Jiu) depicting the aesthetic worldview of the Tang Dynasty. Might we today be similarly cajoled to enjoy life thoroughly in harmony with nature's force ("???", Yan Ping Le) and throwing abandon and a thousand taels of gold to the winds to call for generously bringing in the wine (Qiang Jin Qiu)?

"Can't you see the water of the Yellow River Coming from the sky With waves rolling going straight to the sea And never flowing back again..." This collection reimagines these cultural themes to weave grand tapestries of gilded eras amidst threads of silk into contemporary apparel, each design infused with the distinctive elegance of the East. The result is a classic wardrobe rich in luster and vibrant colours inspired from various Tang Dynasty artifacts, paintings and poetry. "...Don't let the golden wine cup Stay empty to the bright moon The talent that heaven has crafted for me Is bound to be useful" The signature pattern design of the Autumn-Winter 2024 Collection is "The Winding Stream Party" ("????", Qu Shui You Yan) which illustrates an enchanting landscape: pine branches are adorned with lanterns and decorated wine vessels rest in the shade of ancient trees. The distinctive shapes of calabash gourds (Hu Lu) signifying health, wealth and happiness line terraced platforms where scholars mingle and wine flows whilst clouds, distant mountains, flower blossoms, long-tailed birds and graceful deer intricately interlace dimensions of perspective. "... Bells, drums, delicacies, jade – they are not fine enough ... ...and the thousand taels of gold Spent ......read more

Agilis Robotics Completes Cadaver Study for a Novel Endoluminal Surgical Robot, Aims at First-in-human (FIH) Trial This Year

HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach Newswire - 18 July 2024 - Agilis Robotics, a leader in the development of flexible surgical robotics, announces the successful completion of its cadaver study with their innovative surgical robotic system. The study aimed to assess the robot's ability to assist urologists in performing en-bloc resection of bladder tumours (ERBT), an emerging minimally invasive procedure that only requires access to the bladder via the urethra, without any external incisions. The procedure has been shown to significantly reduce recurrence rates, improving patient outcomes by removing tumors in one piece (i.e. "en-bloc").

Through Agilis Robotics' ultra-thin flexible robotic instruments, the surgeons were able to successfully resect tissue en-bloc in locations within the bladder that are typically challenging when using traditional instruments, such as the bladder dome. These findings lay a solid foundation for the upcoming clinical application of the system. The company has designed and developed fully flexible robotic instruments for endoluminal surgery with cutting-edge mechanical architecture. Each instrument is highly miniaturized between 2.8 mm to 3.5 mm in diameter and provides 5 degrees of freedom, allowing surgeons to execute complex procedures of tissue resection with great precision and ease inside natural orifices.
Their innovative approach to robotic instruments also targets endoluminal treatment of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, in addition to the bladder. Utilizing a single robot system, they target effective en-bloc removal in both anatomies via ......read more

Octa asked traders from Indonesia, Malaysia, and Nigeria about their attitude to good fortune in trading. The results showed that most traders attribute their profits to continuous learning, extensive hands-on experience, and well-executed strategy rather than the agency of higher powers. However, the survey revealed that various unusual behaviours exist among traders, and it would be wrong to suggest that purely ‘rational’ ideas are the only source of truth in the field. The average age of ‘The lucky ones’ survey participants varied from 30 in Nigeria to 39 in Malaysia and 42 in Indonesia, while the respondents' trading experience was virtually the same for all regions and amounted to about two years. In all three focus regions, the share of believers in luck and its attributes was relatively low. In Malaysia, 25% of traders professed to counting on luck in all its forms, as compared with 20% in Nigeria and only 9% in Indonesia. This discrepancy can be explained by obvious differences in cultural background and religious beliefs between the nations. Out of the three countries covered by the survey, Malaysia comes across as the one where traders are most likely to ......read more

Russia’s Metalloinvest Plans New Green Metallurgy Project Worth $2 bn

MOSCOW, RUSSIA - Media OutReach Newswire - 17 July 2024 - Metalloinvest, a leading global producer of iron ore products for green steel production, has announced a new investment project worth over $2 billion in central Russia. The company plans to build a plant at its Mikhailovsky GOK unit in the Kursk region, which will produce more than 7 million tonnes of premium-quality iron ore concentrate annually from oxidized iron quartzites – a type of iron ore previously not used in production due to the lack of suitable technologies. Metalloinvest, in collaboration with Russian scientists, has developed a technology for enriching this ore. The new production facility is expected to begin operating in 2028. The concentrate obtained from oxidized quartzites will enable the production of iron ore pellets with an iron content of up to 68% and a low level of silicon dioxide. This product meets the latest market requirements and is an environmentally friendly product for use in green metallurgy based on direct reduction of iron. Direct reduction of iron helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the steelmaking industry. Metalloinvest is the world's largest producer of merchant hot briquetted iron – a type of direct reduced iron used to produce steel with a low carbon footprint. The new project will reduce the cost of ore extraction at Mikhailovsky GOK and create 900 jobs. The capacity of the new production facility may be later increased to 11 million tonnes of premium iron ore concentrate per year. The total reserves of oxidized iron quartzites at the Mikhailovsky deposit amount to 2.6 billion tonnes.

SIBUR Develops Industrial Tourism at Its Green Enterprise

MOSCOW, RUSSIA - Media OutReach Newswire - 17 July 2024 - SIBUR, Russia's largest producer of polymers and rubber, has opened its green enterprise, the Polief plant in the Bashkiriya region, for industrial tourism. Tourists visit Polief to learn about the solar power plant and the technology used to produce plastics from recycled materials. In 2022, Polief began operating a solar power plant consisting of more than 10,000 photovoltaic cells and covering an area equivalent to 10 football fields. The 4.9 MW of solar power generated helps the plant reduce its CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions by 3,000 tonnes per year. The launch of a solar generation plant at Polief is one of the flagship climate projects within SIBUR's sustainable development strategy. The company has registered the plant in the Qatar-backed Global Carbon Council programme and is preparing to receive internationally recognized carbon credits. Polief uses solar energy to produce eco-friendly products – polymers containing recycled plastic. SIBUR, with the help of partners, has created a network of plastic waste collection points and reverse vending machines for accepting used plastic bottles (PET bottles) across Russia. SIBUR's partners shred these bottles into small pieces (flakes), which are then sent to Polief for further processing. Polief produces PET granules containing up to 30% recycled plastic (rPET) under the Vivilen brand, which are then used to make plastic bottles. Visitors touring the plant can see the production workshop as well as the warehouse with big bags of PET flakes, which are mixed with virgin polymer raw materials during production. Over the past year, Polief has welcomed more than 1,000 tourists, including local residents, young people, and industry professionals interested in eco-friendly production technologies. Polief's capacities make it possible to incorporate up to 34,000 tonnes of recycled plastic waste into new products annually. This prevents up to 1.7 ......read more

Octa: 5 pitfalls to avoid when choosing a financial broker

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - Media OutReach Newswire - 16 July 2024 - When deciding which broker to trade with, there are several caveats to consider. A good broker is hard to find, especially if you are an emerging trader who has yet to become knowledgeable in the intricacies of the financial markets. However, some time-proven rules allow you to manage the risks and make this decision confidently. In this article, the experts at Octa, an experienced broker operating across the globe, list five notorious pitfalls to avoid when choosing a broker and offer their advice to help you make the right choice.

1. Insufficient time on the market It stands to reason that any business that has been operating in a market for a number of years has a lot to say in its favour. Complying with the requirements of local authorities, successfully interacting with its clients, and ensuring legitimate profitability year after year are all signs of a stable and trustworthy broker. If you put your faith in a broker that meets these criteria, you can rest assured that it will stay on the regional market for a while, leaving you high and dry and unable to withdraw your well-earned profits. 2. Inadequate security Data drive the modern world, and keeping your personal information under lock and key is crucial for individuals and organisations. Any data breach can result in identity theft and financial losses for clients, and financial brokers that handle sensitive personal and financial information must have robust security measures. It is worth noting that when it comes to security, global brokers have the upper hand over local ones since they comply with the security regulations in all regions of operation. Exposure to a broad scope of challenges s ......read more

Octa provides charity support in celebration of Eid al-Adha

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - Media OutReach Newswire - 16 July 2024 - One of the most important holidays in the Islamic tradition, Eid al-Adha, or ‘The Feast of Sacrifice’, is observed by Muslims all around the world. This year, the festivities took place between 15 and 19 of June. The holiday celebration includes a special prayer followed by the sacrifice of an animal, usually a goat, sheep, cow, or camel. After slaughtering a sacrificial animal, devout Muslims usually give a third of the meat to the poor, sharing another third with friends and relatives, and offering the last third to the Qurbani (sacrifice) performer.

Deeply involved in the lives of local communities across all regions of its operation, Octa joined in the celebration of ‘The Feast of Sacrifice’ and helped underprivileged citizens of Indonesia and Malaysia. In Malaysia, Octa worked closely with Azeehan, a broker's local partner and the driving force behind many charity initiatives, to distribute the Qurbani meat of two cows in Kelantan. Thanks to this humanitarian effort, about 300 people received the much-needed food. ‘In Islam, sharing Qurban meat among the underprivileged to alleviate hunger and poverty has always been regarded as a noble and righteous endeavour. We are thankful to Octa for sponsoring this act of kindness and supporting the local community for two years in a row,’ Azeehan said.

Beyond the VF 8: Decoding VinFast's European Electric Vehicle Strategy

For the first time ever, sport utility vehicles, or SUVs, cruised past a major sales milestone in Europe in 2023, claiming more than half of all new car sales, according to industry data. Fueled by consumer demand, SUV sales surged 23 percent in the first half of the year compared to the same period in 2022, reaching 3.37 million units, Automotive News Europe reported.
