Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Motorsport joined guests at PETRONAS” state-of-the-art Research & Technology Centre in Turin for the launch of PETRONAS Syntium with °CoolTech™ in a dynamic Formula One pit stop competition to determine who could keep their cool under pressure.

Lewis and Valtteri challenged the assembled guests to replicate a Formula One pit stop against the clock, working in teams under the watchful eye of Team Principal, Toto Wolff. Participants kept their cool under the pressure of the clock while replacing all four wheels as the drivers skilfully managed the tyre guns.

The activities demonstrated the advantages of PETRONAS Syntium with °CoolTech™ – fighting excessive engine heat and performing in the most high-pressure conditions. Just as with optimal engine performance, people and teams also achieve the most when they keep their cool.

Five-time F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton said: ‘We”ve found the winning formula during our journey with PETRONAS but we have to keep striving forward. Every success we”ve achieved has been earned together as a team and we know that we perform at our Championship-winning best when we stay cool, calm and composed under pressure. Whether that”s the engine or our people. It is great to see that technology development never stops at PETRONAS.’

PLI Managing Director and Group Chief Executive Officer, Giuseppe D”Arrigo added: ‘Much like humans, engines exposed to strenuous conditions need to be kept cool to ensure optimum performance. PETRONAS fluid technology is designed to perform under pressure, as proven by the outstanding success of Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Motorsport in the F1 Constructors” World Championship over the last five years. Today, we are pleased to bring to our consumers fluids created with our winning technology.’

After a successful 2018, during which PLI pledged to dedicate 75% of its research and technology investments behind CO2 emissions reducing projects, the company is looking forward to more opportunities to apply its fluid technology towards fulfilling this promise.  

The new range of PETRONAS Syntium with °CoolTech™ lubricants will be available globally in a phased launch from March 2019.

Cinespace Film Studios Signs Netflix to Multi-year Lease

Netflix to expand production presence inside new studios and offices in Port of Toronto  

Cinespace Film Studios (Cinespace) today announced the signing of a multi-year lease with Netflix to expand its film and television production presence inside Marine Terminal 51 and the Cruise Ship Terminal, owned by PortsToronto and under long-term lease to Cinespace. The news comes the morning Netflix announced the creation of its Toronto production hub, expanding its production presence in Canada.

‘The Cinespace family is very pleased to have Netflix committed to our newest downtown film studio campus,’ said Steve Mirkopoulos, President and CEO of Cinespace. ‘These new facilities – to be open and operational by the summer of 2019 – will feature 164,000 square feet of new production space, giving Netflix an ideal location to centralize their production of top content and to catalyze job creation inside Toronto”s strategically important downtown Studio District. We thank City of Toronto Mayor John Tory and PortsToronto CEO Geoffrey Wilson for facilitating this tremendous achievement.’

Netflix”s new production hub in Toronto will take advantage of the area”s globally-renowned and award-winning film production infrastructure, which includes deep pools of creative talent, technicians, suppliers and filming locations. Toronto”s overall film and television production volumes have reached $2 billion in recent years and have resulted in tens of thousands of jobs both directly and indirectly.

In addition to Toronto”s Netflix activity, Northern Ontario has also benefitted from several Netflix productions, demonstrating that film and television volumes rely on Ontario”s overall competitiveness as a film jurisdiction. ‘Without Ontario Premier Doug Ford”s critical ”Open for Business” approach and without Finance Minister Vic Fedeli”s strong statements of stability for our sector, there would simply not be a Netflix production hub, or any repeat production volumes to speak of. Our provincial leaders are our strongest partners and advocates,’ said Jim Mirkopoulos, Vice President, Cinespace.

‘Early in our mandate, we met with key stakeholders in this industry to reinforce our commitment to a steady, predictable business environment for them,’ stated Premier Ford. ‘We welcome Netflix to Toronto, and we look forward to continued growth in this dynamic sector.’ Finance Minister Fedeli added, ‘Supported by the Province of Ontario, this multi-billion dollar industry full of world-class creative talent and storytellers and highly-skilled production workers is making significant and growing contributions to Ontario”s economy and quality of life. Our government is committed to providing stability and support to ensure this key cultural industry can compete and remain the best in Canada, and one of the best in the world.’

For Mayor Tory, the creation of a Netflix production hub in Toronto is a major milestone in his years of lobbying the Hollywood studios and digital platforms to send more business to Toronto, as well as his continuous urging of City agencies to audit their inventories for large sites that could be leased to the film industry. ‘I am thrilled with the news that PortsToronto and Toronto”s studio veterans – Cinespace – will host Netflix”s expanded production presence in Toronto,’ said Mayor Tory. ‘Our talented people will now be even more prominent both in front of, and behind the camera, Toronto”s unmatched diversity of locations will be streamed even more regularly around the world, and the powerful economic impact of this new investment will spill over into every corner of our City for years to come.’

‘Areas within our PortsToronto property have long served as unique backdrops and filming locations for this industry and we are pleased that facilities in our port will now serve as an official gateway for the burgeoning sector of digital content creation,’ said Geoffrey Wilson, Chief Executive Officer, PortsToronto. ‘The Port of Toronto continues to be a significant import centre bringing approximately 2 million metric tonnes of bulk cargo and construction materials to our city annually, as well as supporting a growing passenger cruise ship business. Ports globally are beginning to ”layer in” complementary industries, and we are ahead of the curve in recognizing the opportunities of diversifying our properties in order to provide key infrastructure and support to an industry with significant economic and cultural impact to the region. We look forward to an expanded partnership with Cinespace and we are very excited to see the content and talent that emerges from this innovative collaboration.’

City Councillor Paula Fletcher, Co-Chair of the Toronto Film, Television and Digital Media Board said, ‘Toronto”s screen industry contributes to the vitality, prosperity and creativity of our city. This initiative will drive business investment, create more jobs and build on the remarkable achievements of this growing sector which already supports an estimated 30,000 jobs. The Netflix production hub is good for business, good for the area and good for Toronto.’

Oscar-winning Producer J. Miles Dale (Best Picture, ”The Shape of Water”), hailed the announcement as a critical step in growing Toronto”s film infrastructure. ‘As a 30-year producer in Toronto and one of the first-ever clients of Cinespace, I”ve witnessed our people mature into award-winning crews and now I am seeing our infrastructure grow to meet this new demand, so I”m very gratified with this announcement. Both I – along with my producing partner Guillermo Del Toro – cannot wait to bring our own slate of projects to Toronto”s new Netflix production hub.’

Toronto-based television Producer John Weber, producer of ”Handmaid”s Tale” and ”Vikings”, also welcomed the news of Netflix”s creation of a production hub: ‘We have had the privilege of producing for Netflix on two projects based in Toronto. Both ”Black Mirror” and the currently in-production series ”Locke & Key” represent content produced in Ontario which will be viewed and enjoyed all over the world. There is no doubt that Netflix”s expanded commitment to Toronto will create significant opportunities for the cast, crews and suppliers of Toronto”s film industry.’

Bordon Revitalizes International Brand and Launches New Products for the Middle East

DUBAI, UAE, Feb. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Bordon, Brazil”s brand leader in the canned protein (beef and poultry) segment, will relaunch its traditional Corned Beef range in the Middle East with a new visual identity, which it will use in all its international markets. Bordon is also developing twenty new options in the Middle East product portfolio over the next three years, all of which will cater to regional preferences and comply with Islamic requirements.

‘We have consulted with clients in six Middle Eastern countries, which are our main export destinations, and they all mentioned that the brand”s visuals were a strong point. We then took steps to modernize the logo and labeling, keeping the main elements consumers identify with while highlighting the brand”s attributes, such as the higher protein content,’ explained André Amorem, executive manager for Prepared Foods at Friboi.

Bordon has also started color-coding its products: the Corned Beef can with the purple border is the traditional product, while the silver border indicates low salt content and the blue border is for low fat content. The blue label cans have a purple, gold or orange border which identifies the type of protein (beef, chicken and turkey, respectively).

Bordon has also started exporting Luncheon Meat, known as Fiambre or ‘cutting meat’ in Brazil, which is widely used abroad to make snacks and aperitifs. Bordon is also unveiling sausages, meatballs and new Corned Beef flavors for the Middle East. ‘With all these new options, we expect to triple our production volumes by 2021,’ added Amorem.

He also said that the process of creating the art and all the point-of-sale material with the new visual identity is being supported by an agency in Dubai, which has made a big contribution to understanding the best way of communicating with consumers on the Arabic market. In 2019, JBS will also have a Prepared Foods Sales manager at its commercial office in the city, who will be responsible for developing new product categories and sales channels in the Middle East.

Bordon”s new products have gone into production in January 2019 and should reach shelves in a number of countries, including the Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan and Egypt, in February and March. Other international markets, such as Europe, Africa and Japan, already import Bordon products.

China Import Expo Roadshows Warm Winter Up

Prior to the traditional Chinese Lunar New Year, these few Chinese from the Commerce Ministry have been traveling 10 countries and have so far signed up and are about to sign exhibitors who would combine to occupy upwards of 100,000 square meters of exhibition floor space in November this year.

Previous Exhibitors Demand Larger Exhibition Area:

Slated for between November 5 and 10, the second edition of the CIIE exposition will offer larger exhibition floor space as against the inaugural edition. The exhibition area for national stands alone will measure 30,000 square meters. Larger still will be areas to be provided with exhibitors of equipment, consumer goods, foodstuff, health products and services which fall into seven categories. On the sidelines, there will be parallel forums which attract more participants than they did last year.

The tourshows hit the road within 30 days of the conclusion of the inaugural import exposition. In a matter of two months, these promoters have set foot on New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, the United States, Panama, Brazil, Italy, Spain, Portugal and France. Wherever they go, they are greeted by willingness and enthusiasm of attending the second import expo. In New Zealand, Australia and Indonesia, participating enterprises all signed up for over 1,000 square meters of exhibition area for this year. In Italy, quite some well-known Italian enterprises have signed up floor spaces of up to 2,200 square meters. In Spain, three exhibitors have signed up for the import expo and many inquired into the configuration and policy of the exposition.

Exhibitors who were in Shanghai last November have chosen to demand larger floor space for their exhibition this year. As Zhang Li, CEO of FIWA SAS put it, last year”s import expo has popularized in China the 60 wines her company brought to the exposition from 30 winemakers in France, Britain and Spain. FIWA SAS has decided therefore to enlarge its exhibition area by three folds so as to bring more European wines to the Chinese market. CEO of L”Oreal China, Stephane Rinderknech, says the import expo is not only a window China opens toward the world, it serves more as a proactive promoter to trade globalization.

The Cake Grows Ever Bigger:

January 31st was the deadline for preferential treatment of applications for the second CIIE exposition. As the date drew closer, more exhibitors had vied against time to meet the date. A more crowded second CIIE exposition has already loomed larger on the horizon.

Pundits have attributed the growing CIIE popularity to the reciprocal benefits the import expo has brought along to exhibitors.

Economic Benefits:

Exhibitors at the inaugural import expo have taken home a combined total of trade deals amounting to 57.83 billion U.S. dollars executable for within 12 months. Augusto Castro, China regional manager for Brazil Export and Investment Bureau, adds some 150 times of getting Brazil in the news with major Chinese media outlets apart from bagging home over 100 million U.S. dollars of trade deals. Likewise, Panama has left Shanghai with 30 million U.S. dollars of signed trade deals.

Market opportunities:

China is a country with almost 1.4 billion people. Consumption in this populous country is fast upgrading itself. Last year alone, both the domestic consumption and the volume of imported consumer goods and services grew 10 percent. In the 15 years yet to come, China is expected to import 30 trillion U.S. dollars worth of goods and 10 trillion dollars worth of services. Trade flows of such magnitude serve not only as a steady driver for global growth, but also help provide opportunities for enterprises elsewhere. Kylie Bell, trade and industry minister of New South Wales in Australia, describes the China import expo as a fast and express train for local enterprises aspiring to get to the Chinese market. Mike Arend, China advisor for New Zealand Trade and Development Bureau, expects to cement cooperation with the China International Import Expo Bureau so as to better support more New Zealand SMEs with their efforts on getting the Chinese market through the import exposition. Spanish secretary of state for trade, Xiana Mendez, says: ‘As China quickens its opening-up steps, her move will bring along new opportunities for Spanish enterprises to attend the import expo and to forge developmental cooperation in trade.’

Cooperation Platform and Solutions:

As against the current backdrop of international trade, the China International Import Expo has been taken by many enterprises as a China Solution for promoting economic globalization. Vladimir Makatsaria, chairman of Johnson&Johnson China and global chairman of Ethicon, believes that the China import expo is not only a demonstration arena for goods and services, but also a multi-purpose and encompassing platform for international cooperation. The import expo is of special significance in promoting economic and trade cooperation and growth as well as in boosting an open economy worldwide. Marco Bettino, secretary-general of Italy-China Chamber of Commerce, says the inaugural import expo has helped smooth a number of Italian SMEs through their bottlenecks of financial and human resources and time-costs which in turn help them with improving branding and servicing capabilities in getting to global markets. The secretary-general says: ‘One way to see it, the import expo is a pioneer in the era of electronic commerce and digitalization. The import expo has brought together exporters of various description for face-on exchanges aimed at further opening-up and cooperation.’ Like many exhibitors having summed up, the CIIE exposition has set up a sound and solid stage for economic and trade cooperation between China and Italy and the import expo serves a smooth doorway for exporters to get to the Chinese market. The import expo not only promotes Italian brands but also presents better platform for trade negotiations.

‘New Era, Shared Future’ is the theme of the China International Import Expo. It is the invitation China sends out to exporters and exhibitors from around the world. Welcome are enterprises with their quality and unique products, technologies and services with competitive edges. Their products, technologies and services will share the benefits of the fast-growing, open economy of China.

The CIIE hosts would like to remind exhibitors of the final date for application for attendance in the second CIIE exposition. The date falls on April 30th and is two months ahead of last year”s application deadline. Aspiring exhibitors are encouraged to apply well before that date. They can apply through the CIIE official website at www.ciie.org.

SHANGHAI, Feb. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — While most Chinese are looking forward to their annual homecoming for family reunions, a few are traveling away from home on promo-demo roadshows for the second China International Import Expo (CIIE).
