SCMO attended the "Geopolitical Risk Forecast: Crisis and Opportunity in 2018” discussion organized in Hong Kong by CRISIS GROUP.
International Crisis Group is an independent policy organisation that acts to prevent wars breaking out and helps to shape peace processes in more than 40 conflicts and countries. We are unique, working through deep field research, writing comprehensive reports and bringing our timely analysis to top policy makers in person.
Jean-Marie Guéhenno was until his appointment as President of the International Crisis Group in 2014 the Arnold Saltzman Professor of Professional Practice at Columbia University and Director of its centre for international conflict resolution. He is also a member of the High-Level advisory board on mediation recently created by the Secretary-General of the UN, and a Distinguished Fellow at the Brookings Institution.
In 2012, he was appointed Deputy Joint Special Envoy of the United Nations and the Arab League for Syria. He left that position to chair the commission appointed by President François Hollande to review the French Defense and National Security Posture.
Between 2000 and 2008, he served as the United Nations’ Under Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations and held the position of Chairman of the Institut des Hautes Études de Défense Nationale. He previously served as Director of the French policy planning staff and as Ambassador to the Western European Union.
Mr. Guéhenno shared his analysis on the international outlook for next year.
To promote regional cooperation among countries along the Belt and Road, to strengthen connections with consulate generals in Hong Kong, and to celebrate Christmas together, CHINA DAILY ASIA LEADERSHIP ROUNDTABLE invited SCMO to attend the China Daily Asia Leadership Roundtable “Belt and Road Networking Reception”.
This event brought together consul-generals in Hong Kong, CEOs and around 200 C-level senior executives from Fortune Global 500 and China 500 companies, think tanks, academics and media practitioners from public and private sectors across Asia.
It was also open to local and international media. SCMO was briefly interviewed regarding its involvement on the "Belt and Road Initiative" and our projects in its deployment. A few lines were present in a CHINA DAILY article about SCMO.
Launched in 2012, the Forum aims to further deepen and broaden financial cooperation between financial institutions in Hong Kong and the UK. This year, the half-day open seminar covered the latest development surrounding financial liberalisation in Mainland China, the Belt and Road Initiative, green finance, and fintech.
SCMO helped create, design and implement SLI LOGISTICS logistics control tower for servicing their customers.
The "Logistics Control Tower" allows faster, closer, easier, more structured, and cheaper interactions and communication between SLI LOGISTICS and their customers. It is web-based, responsive, and acts as an automatized "global super customer service desk", using both IT functionalities, tracking & tracing solutions, mobile applications, and soft artificial intelligence (AI).
It helps reduce Human interactions by about 70% and therefore reduces costs accordingly.
