  • 中国游客弃传统路线 爱来马享美食购物

    中国, 2017/10/12 来马来西亚旅游的中国游客心态及消费层次已有所转变。除了海岛之外,一般经典旅游路线吸引力不再,新生代乐于单纯来马畅享美食及购物。 马中旅游促进协会(MICA)总会长伍安琪说,在现时的中国“十一”黄金周长假,来马中国游客相较去年略有所增,但除却沙巴海岛满额之外,传统旅游团实际上未见暴增。她说,11月15日至来年1月2日是中国游客来马旺季,也是“接团到手软”的旅游热潮,因这段期间正值中国放寒假及马来西亚购物嘉年华。因而,她促请商家及餐饮业等相关旅游业者要把握好机会,在下个月中旬开始迎接中国游客来马避寒及购物。 伍安琪在接受访问时表示,马来西亚吃住相对廉宜,游客能买到更多奢靡品,只要规划妥善,有潜能成为全球数一数二的购物天堂。她提到,现在的中国游客来马旅游更多重心放在吃喝玩乐及购物,大家很容易在双塔楼的阳光广场、柏威廉等地看到他们的身影。 她说,随着中国出境旅游人数每年递增,来马中国游客在今年1月至8月增加了8.5%,今年底达到300万人次的目标则要看最后一季的冲刺。今年以来,赴马中国游客超过了240万人次,要在最后两个月达标还需各方努力,但有信心可以完成目标。

  • How fair is our food? Big companies take reins on sourcing schemes

    WORLD, 2017/09/06 From cocoa to tea, food and drink giants are setting their own standards for ethical sourcing of raw materials, moving away from third-party labels such as Fairtrade. Mondelez International (MDLZ.O), owner of chocolate brands Cadbury and Toblerone, Unilever (ULVR.L), behind tea brands such as Lipton and PG Tips, and Barry Callebaut, the world’s biggest producer of chocolate and cocoa products, have all introduced their own schemes. They say their targets are additional comprehensive and some claim their schemes are additional effective in tracking whether a product is ethically sourced each step of the way.

  • U.S. warns South Sudan: Continued chaos is not acceptable, aid may be pulled

Mark Green, the administrator for the United States Agency for International Development, met Friday with President Salva Kiir Mayardit.

Since civil war erupted almost four years ago, a third of South Sudan’s population has become internally displaced or fled the country in Africa’s worst refugee crisis since the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
