euronews Life - Thailand: sun, sea and a booming business economy
 
05:12
http://www.euronews.com/ Thailand evokes images of endless, sandy beaches but there is a lot more to this South East Asian country. In the first edition of our four part series 'Thai Life', we take a look at the kingdom's business spirit. To find out why Thailand is such a popular investment market, euronews headed to its capital, Bangkok. With a population of around 10 million, it can sometimes feel like all the city's inhabitants are on the streets at once. Bangkok is at the heart of the Thai economy with 90% of the country's export trade taking place in the capital. The Asian Kingdom is also becoming an evermore attractive production location for foreign businesses, which are attracted by its stable infrastructure and tax incentives. Stiebel Eltron, a housing technology manufacturer is one of the 500 German companies to start up operations in Thailand. It learned early on that doing business 'Thai style' requires a great deal of cultural awareness and tact; something the company's Export Manager, Holger Palla knows all too well: "In Germany you can raise your voice (literally bang your fist on the table) and speak more openly and direct. Maybe even a little too loud and direct. In Thailand you can't do that at all. You have to be careful not to embarrass other people -- they shouldn't lose face so you have to show respect and proceed more subtly." Yupa Tassri, General Manager at Siebel Eltron takes care of the staff's needs, bridging any cultural divides: "In Thai most people respect Buddha, so the Germans will never understand how we respect him. "My main challenge is to mix and match between Thai and German mindsets, to make sure that they understand each other and work together in harmony." Teamwork plays a vital role, ensuring the working day runs smoothly, as Roland Hoehn, Asian Pacific Director at Siebel Eltron explains: "Thai's like to work in groups. They want to have Sanuuk once in a while. Sanuuk is probably best translated as fun and is simply a part of the Thai culture. If they aren't having fun, they leave the company. So harmony and fun are important." For foreign companies, the benefits of working in Thailand, seem to outweigh concerns voiced by some businesses over bureaucracy and a lack of qualified labour. John Svengren, the Executive Director of the European Asean Business Centre believes the key to doing business successfully in Thailand is taking the time to build bonds with colleagues: "Relationships mean a lot more for one thing. You don't come to an Asian country and do business on the first day. You need to have relationships, particularly if you're in joint venture operations with Thai partnerships. It can take years to develop confidence and trust." This is not only true for the industrial sector but also for tourism, another important area for foreign investors, especially European. This year alone, more than 20 million visitors are expected, making up around 6% of the nation's total economy. The tourism industry has been trying to attract new target groups and green tourism is becoming increasingly popular. At Karon beach in Phuket, a Swiss run hotel was the first on the island to receive the Green Globe certificate for sustainability. The hotel's General Manager at the Mövenpick resort, Hansreudi Frutiger talks to euronews about his accomplishment: "We began with the Green Globe one year ago. We wanted to explain to our Thai employees what this means to us; that we want to help the world stay as it was and is. We've a small garden where we grow tomatoes and cucumbers alongside various Thai herbs and spices which our chefs use in our kitchen's dishes." Thailand is a country of contrast. While it is finding success putting itself on the world business map - tradition and heritage remain an integral part of life.

Cheaper oil and we gasp at the latest gadgets - Business Line

In the programme: 1. Cheaper oil. 2. Cars of the future at Detroit Motor Show. 3. Electronic gadgets in Las Vegas. 4. Greek elections blues. Starting the programme at the beginning of this new year we focus on the top story, that has remained in the headlines since last year – oil. Looking at prices of crude, it now seems we're talking about a free fall, rather than a slide. In our first programme we're looking at: how much money could we save when we drive to work or take a flight ? We also look at the cheapest and the most expensive petrol in the European Union and the cars of future, which don't need petrol at all. Actually some of them don't even need a driver. How much time would it take to make a transition to an entirely connected lifestyle and do we really need smartphone-controlled coffee machines?

euronews business planet - Fare business con il riciclo dei rifiuti elettronici
 
03:16
http://it.euronews.com/ I rifiuti elettronici sono un grande problema per l'ambiente. Ma un progetto sviluppato in Italia sta dimostrando che essi possono diventare una risorsa. La società lombarda Relight, fondata nel 1999, si occupa dello smaltimento e del riciclo di apparecchiature elettriche ed elettroniche. Quando ha avviato l'attività, l'azienda si estendeva su 1.000 metri quadrati. Oggi occupa 11.000 metri quadrati e impiega 70 persone. La maggior parte dello staff amministrativo è donna. "La vita di questi prodotti è sempre più breve", spiega Bibiana Ferrari, amministratore delegato di Relight, "Pertanto la necessità di disfarsi di questi materiali aumenta. Il riciclo è indispensabile per poter garantire una seconda vita ai materiali". La società, insieme ad un gruppo di aziende italiane, ha trovato il modo per fare business recuperando gli schermi dei vecchi televisori a tubo catodico. L'attività rientra nel progetto "Glassplus", che ha ricevuto finanziamenti dall'Unione Europea, nell'ambito del piano denominato Eco-Innovation. "Il progetto ha una sua sostenibilità economica. La mia azienda produce risultati e dà lavoro, garantendo la sostenibilità del sistema", assicura Bibiana Ferrari, amministratore delegato di Relight. Il fatturato annuo è pari a 8 milioni di euro. Per dare un'idea del processo di trasformazione del materiale riciclato, si può dire che gli schermi di trenta televisori possono diventare settanta metri quadri di piastrelle di ceramica. Più del 20% dell'argilla di cui sono composte le mattonelle contiene vetro riciclato. Davide Carra, coordinatore del progetto Glassplus, racconta: "Fino ad oggi abbiamo realizzato circa 500.000 metri quadrati di piastrelle in ceramica con questo impasto innovativo. Questo significa che abbiamo recuperato circa 2.500 tonnellate di vetro dei vecchi televisori". L'utilizzo di materiale di recupero riduce in maniera significativa la dipendenza delle aziende dall'importazione di materie prime. Arnold Stabinger, amministratore delegato dell'emiliana Ceramiche Refin, sottolinea: "La produzione per noi è particolarmente importante perché rientra nella nostra strategia competitiva, che è principalmente orientata verso l'innovazione, l'alta qualità e il design". Ma quali sono gli elementi che hanno permesso il successo di questo progetto di sinergia imprenditoriale? Bibiana Ferrari, amministratore delegato di Relight, risponde così: "Le tre chiavi del successo sono queste: un'attenzione alla ricerca e allo sviluppo; energia e sforzi per la salvaguardia dell'ambiente e la capacità di conciliare le frazioni di risulta con quelle che sono le crescenti necessità dell'industria".

Egypt's tourism after Sinai plane crash, and Hedy Lamarr's legacy - Business Line
 
08:58
The Sinai plane crash shattered Egypt's tourism dream. The country has been doing its best to lure back visitors after the Arab Spring revolution of 2011 and its efforts started paying off before an airliner taking Russian tourists home broke up over the Sinai Peninsula. In this edition of Business Line we look at the tourism industry that was meant to be a pillar of Egypt's economy. We speak to Euronews' correspondent in Egypt Mohammed Shaikhibrahim to answer the question as to whether the country's economy can overcome this blow. Our IT-focused section delves into the life of Hollywood legend Hedy Lamarr. What does this beautiful and scandalous actress from the 1940s have to do with WiFi and Bluetooth? And why did Google decide to celebrate her life with a dedicated doodle? Glamour and technology, beauty and intelligence, Nazi submarines and wireless communications... No, this isn't a movie script.

Greece deal spells more pain for its economy - Business Line

The deal reached by Athens and its international creditors in the early hours of Monday (13 June) saw Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras concede to cuts and reforms that his people had decisively rejected in a referendum a week earlier. The compromise agreement, which has sparked mass street protests in Greece, calls for sweeping economic policy changes, including cuts to pensions and further 'streamlining' of the taxation system. In this edition of Business Line we look at some of the key reforms outlined in the deal and what their impact is likely to be - with analysis from members of the Euronews' Athens team. Plus, in our IT-dedicated segment, we get an inside view on how Greek start-ups are navigating their way forward in a debt-ridden economy with a banking system in deep freeze.

euronews business planet - Meeting targets
 
03:15
How do you get finance when you're a small or medium sized enterprise specialising in research? First you have to identify your needs, make the most of your potential and find great partners. And luckily the Enterprise Europe Network helps companies do just that! Electrical activity in the brain can be analysed using microchips connected to the neurons of mice. This small German company markets models of this electrical activity and sells them to laboratories which are developing treatments for diseases of the nervous system, for example. Launched with 4 people in 2007, the company now has 17 employees and their turnover doubles every year. Great results which are due to hard work and a little free help from the European network. Alexandra Voss, Chief Scientific Officer, Neuroproof, said: "With the European Network, we found partners for specific calls. So within these calls, we established specific models with our method. We had one project which was related to pain. So we established the pain model. One project is working with stem cells. We established models for stem cells. This is what had really helped to find the right partners for this kind of projects." And thanks to these partnerships, the company has taken part in research projects and been awarded around 1.4 million in EU grants. These projects allowed them to update their technology. Alexandra Voss said: "Without this help, we would not have had the focus to establish new technologies and our methods like human stem cells, like transgenic models and stuff like that. Because, they are so time and work consuming, and money consuming, you really need projects with international partners for that." And today, the company continues their collaboration with Frank Graage, one of the 3,000 experts in the Enterprise Europe Network. Now that the technology is up to date, she has even recruted three more people to help develop the business. Frank Graage, Enterprise Europe Network Expert, said: "Nowadays, the application is much more advanced. Now, they know exactly which areas they focus on, which markets they focus on. So today, we have to look for different perspectives to help them. Now we are looking much more for business partners. And not so much for research partners." Alexandra Voss said: "For me, the keys to success are: find global partners for your business developement, and for your scientific development. And, most important: keep your people happy!"
Big party for Turkey's ruling party - Business Line

Turkey's ruling AK party grabbed a surprisingly robust victory in the weekend's snap elections. The result has been seen first of all as a triumph for the country's president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. In this edition of Business Line we look at the markets' reaction to the elections outcome and dig through the official economic data with our correspondent in Istanbul Bora Bayraktar to find out what are the main concerns and problems for people there. Speaking of the Turkish elections, we didn't miss an interesting detail: the way some people found out the results. Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan posted a tweet congratulating Prime Minister Davutoğlu for the victory. Didn't Erdogan hate Twitter and even try to ban it after it was used to mobilise protests against Ankara's rule? He did, as we will see in our IT-dedicated segment.

On the contrary - many say this crash might have a greater impact on the world economy than the crisis in Greece. We analyse what exactly has been happening in China, not only over the last month, but over the last few years, to find out whether the plunge is just an ordinary correction after a year of big gains, or if it's the first sign of deeper problems in the Chinese economy.

euronews business planet - Cooperative and competitive
 
03:16
http://www.euronews.com/ There are 250,000 socially responsible cooperatives in Europe, and between them they employ 5.5 million people. But they are also real businesses: dynamic, innovative and competitive. Chernomorka is a clothing cooperative which was founded 60 years ago and now employs around 70 people, half of them disabled. Here, all strategic decisions are taken by majority vote at general meetings. For example in 2003, the cooperative decided to develop its own range of children's clothes. Today, they produce 100 new designs a year, using high-quality fabrics from Italy. Maya Marinova, the president of Chernomorka, told euronews: "Of course, that has had an impact on the financial situation of the cooperative. Turnover has increased by 5-10 percent a year, and we've taken on lots of people, including disabled workers. Before, we had eight to 10 employees on this line but now seven years later we have 30." During the time they have produced their own range and sold it in shops or on the internet, lots of things have changed at Chernomorka. But the socially responsible aim of providing therapy through work for disabled people has remained the same. Through various projects supported by European Structural Funds, like the European Social Fund and the European Regional Development Fund, the cooperative has received around 190,000 euros in financing over five years, to train workers, buy new machines, improve air quality and soon, to install solar panels. Maya Marinova, said: "Our aim is to improve the quality of our production and at the same time make working conditions better for disabled workers. And of course to improve productivity, that's the most important thing." For her the key to success is the cooperative, which is a form of democratic business. Integrating disabled people into the production process is also key, as well as the stability and financial independence of the cooperative.

Business Line investigates: Can money buy happiness?
 
08:52
Can money buy happiness? Princeton University economist Angus Deaton won the Nobel Prize in economics for his analysis of consumption, poverty, and welfare. He's been examining how we spend and save, how we distribute spending among different goods and how to measure poverty and welfare in general. In other words - he's been studying what we know, what we do and what matters to all of us in our everyday lives. In this edition of Business Line we take a closer look at his works trying to analyse ourselves and answer an age-old question: can money buy happiness? Talking about consumption, our IT-dedicated segment is focused on Facebook's efforts to revolutionise shopping through smartphones. While mobile purchases still represent a small share of overall retail sales, Menlo Park's new "Shopping" feed, "Shop" sections and ads will make sure people are not only connected to friends, but also brands.

Business Line special oil edition: a brave new world
 
08:40
In the last few weeks oil prices went on a wild rollercoaster ride. Now they seem to have re-taken their shaky path, driven in no small part by the performance of the Chinese markets. The world's second biggest economy is also the largest importer of oil and investors are frightened by the prospect of an economic slowdown in the Asian country. But weaker than expected demand in Asia is just the latest twist in the "oil slump saga". Why have crude prices more than halved since June 2014? In this latest instalment of Business Line we'll see what caused the "oil glut" that's putting pressure on them. Also, we'll be taking a look at some of the heaviest consequences of low oil prices: for the industry, for exporting countries and for consumers. Finally, with the help of our analyst, we'll try answering the most important question of all: what is going to happen now?

Catching China's cold - Business Line
 
08:32
It is said when America sneezes the world catches a cold. In this first edition of 2016 we look at what happens to the world when China gets sick. The dramatic crash of the country's stock market triggered a rough start to the year for markets across the world. The China decline followed the report on the country's manufacturing. How bad was it? Bad enough for the Chinese authorities to introduce the latest measure in an attempt to tame market volatility. In this edition we look at the circuit breaker mechanism to see how it works and analyse why it was used on the first day it was introduced.

Revelations that HSBC was helping more than 100,000 clients from all around the world hide millions of dollars from the authorities. Its bankers helped celebrities, drug traffickers and arms dealers to dodge taxes back in 2007. Tax fraud and tax evasion affects everyone, for example through lost money that could have funded new roads, railways and schools. Events in Switzerland have also had a big impact on people who tried to get on the property ladder in Romania. We find out how Swiss currency changes created misery there and in other Central and Eastern European countries. And we discuss the Internet and why we should not take it for granted.

Franc loans in Eastern Europe, "One more thing" from Apple - Business Line
 
08:26
It's been a month since the Swiss national bank ended a policy meant to limit the franc's value against the euro. And the consequences have gone way beyond Swiss chocolate and watches soaring in price. When the franc almost instantly rocked up 20 percent against the euro, and even more against the currencies of Eastern Europe, hundreds of thousands of home-owners found themselves unable to meet their monthly mortgage payments in francs. But the Hungarians didn't feel the pain. Why? - That's the question we ask euronews business corespondent in Budapest Beatrix Asboth. We also speak to our very own Kyiv correspondent Maria Korenyuk as the Ukrainian government and the National bank there are yet to find a solution to foreign-currency loans. We also take a look at what could be Apple's next "one more thing".

"V" For Victory, "V" For Varoufakis - Business Line
 
09:15
When Greeks overwhelmingly said "no" to austerity, they also gave a decisive victory for Yanis Varoufakis. In the run-up to the poll he said he'd "prefer to cut his arm off" than sign a new accord that doesn't restructure Greece's debt. He promised to resign if the country voted 'Yes'. Nevertheless he sensationally stepped down a few hours later, saying he no longer felt welcome at the talks table. The "accidental economist" as he calls himself, is no longer an "accidental minister", but for many Greeks he remains a hero.

Business Line: the demise of Black Friday and Cyber Monday
 
07:44
The holiday season is on and that means it's time to think about presents. In the US the gift shopping traditionally kicks off after Thanksgiving Day. A long weekend brings all the family together first at the table for dinner, and then – for shopping. This year the Black Friday shopping magic didn't work that miraculously, at least offline. Online sales that day jumped significantly from last year. That explains why there were fewer people willing to brave the crowds in the shops. But it looks like not only did online steal the shopping-show over the weekend, it also stole family dinners.

The European Central Bank has finally launched its highly anticipated stimulus programme. Known as "quantitative easing", it's aimed at raising inflation, making borrowing easier and kick-starting the economy. That's if it works. The Greek cabinet is trying to do its job in a very creative way. The government's idea is to engage non-professional tax inspectors, like students and tourists, to fight fraud. In this edition we look at why tax evasion is such a big problem for Greece. And we take a closer look at the Apple Watch: what can it do, how much does it cost and what it means for the world's richest company. But, most of all, is it worth your money?

I respect my own work, and the work done by me team. This way, we can always achieve our aims in a very serious way, but we remain solid over time," she said. And this summer, Fatima is planning to open a new boutique for children, managed by her other daughter Teresa, who is just about to join the company. Fatima says that the keys to success are enthusiasm, creativity, work, humility and a bit of curiosity.
