“SWISSNEX China’s “BlockChain In Fintech” Seminar

Beijing – The Embassy of Switzerland in China hosted a variety of events during Swiss national holidays. Among them, the afternoon session on Friday July 6th 2018 was a special seminar for the 4th Industrial Revolution era. It is no exaggeration to say that the 21st century is the age of the Fourth Revolution.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is a new industrial age in which the physical world, the digital world, and the biological world are merged, affecting all areas of economy and society. The fourth industrial revolution, following the mechanization of the first industrial revolution, the mass production of the second industrial revolution, and the informationization of the third industrial revolution, are the physical arts Internet (IoT), robotics, virtual reality (VR) Innovative technologies like the present and future mean the present and the future that change the way we live and work.

Since the Fourth Industrial Revolution, most of the information we have today is electronicized, shared on the Internet, and digitized. As a result, personal information leakage and the resulting currency trading accidents often occur.

The technology that was born to solve these tough problems is the ‘block chain’. A block chain is a distributed data storage technology that transparently records transactions on a book that anyone can read, and replicates and stores them on multiple computers.

Several computers verify the record to prevent hacking. The principle of this block chain is as follows. It is a distributed data storage technology that stores data in a block, connects it in a chain form, replicates it to many computers at the same time and stores it. It is also called a public transaction book. Instead of keeping a record of transactions on a centralized server, it sends transactions to all users participating in the transaction, and every transaction participant is prevented from sharing or sharing information and counterfeiting or tampering with data.

Embassy of Switzerland in China held a seminar on how to use this ‘block chain’ to host this seminar to showcase how to apply block chains in business, as well as establishing a business network for mutual business. The panel of the event was attended by Donald Haudenechild, president of Swisscom Blockchain and university professor, and Elaine Shi, an expert in the block chain. Each panel had an in-depth discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the block chain, as well as discussing future directions.

The AICC was also invited to share their business information and shared their experiences with these events. In addition to the block chained seminar, the Swiss National Day event also provided an opportunity to experience various products such as clocks, fountain pens, drinks.

Secretary Wilbur Ross Concludes SelectUSA Investment Summit with $600 Million Announced in New Deals, Supporting 650 U.S. Jobs

WASHINGTON – June 22, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross concluded the fifth SelectUSA Investment Summit. More than 3,000 people attended this year’s Summit, including 1,200 business representatives from 66 foreign markets, and economic development organizations (EDOs) from 51 U.S. states and territories. During the event, Secretary Ross was joined by 10 Governors, five Cabinet secretaries, as well as executives from Mercedes-Benz US International, Siemens USA, and Toyota Motor North America.

“SelectUSA continues to be the premier event for international companies looking to enter American markets,” said Secretary Ross. “With millions in investments announced over the past few days, hundreds of American jobs will be created in communities across the country. Clearly, under the leadership of President Donald J. Trump, the United States continues to be the best place in the world for foreign investment.”

During this year’s Summit, four international companies, JSW Steel, NewCold, Re:Cognition Health, and Weastec, announced expansions in the United States, projects worth more than $600 million and creating approximately 650 new jobs. In addition, this year’s event included more than 2,700 individual matchmaking meetings among the companies and EDOs in attendance.

Past attendees of SelectUSA have announced nearly $93 billion in new investment projects, which support 140,000 American jobs.

Secretary Ross also unveiled a report on the immense benefits rural communities have received from foreign direct investment (FDI) – just since 2003 the value of greenfield FDI in nonmetro areas has totaled nearly $56.8 billion.

The 2018 Investment Summit focused on several issues affecting FDI in the United States, including infrastructure, tax reform, deregulation, advanced manufacturing, and the burgeoning commercial space industry.

Secretary Ross announced that the 2019 SelectUSA Investment Summit is planned for June 10-12, 2019.

Commerce Pledges Support for Commercial Space Industry

Coming on the heels of Secretary Ross’s announcement of a new initiative to support space commerce, space-focused professionals filled the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., on March 12th – 15th for the satellite industry’s annual meeting.

On Monday, the industry heard from Secretary Ross about his plans for elevating space commerce functions within the department, a key objective in the Department of Commerce’s recently released strategic plan for 2018-2022.

NTIA Assistant Secretary David Redl addressed the convention on Wednesday, pledging his commitment to collaborating with the U.S. satellite industry – highlighting the importance of maintaining global leadership for satellite-based services and manufacturing. He told attendees that the United States needs a vibrant satellite sector, which directly supports tens of thousands of family-sustaining jobs and indirectly enables millions more in the larger economy.

Fast-paced innovation in the satellite sector is paving the way for a new era in satellite coverage that will strengthen our nation’s broadband infrastructure and power advanced services to improve people’s lives. “The Commerce Department is invested in the health and success of all aspects of the satellite sector, from spacecraft design and manufacturing to earth-station equipment standards and manufacturing,” said Assistant Secretary Redl.
