Prudential RideLondon promotes an inclusive cycling community

Cyclists from all over the world gathered in the United Kingdom for Prudential RideLondon last weekend, August 3 to 4. The world’s largest cycling festival witnessed 100,000 participants clock in more than three million miles across seven events.

Sponsored by British financial services giant Prudential plc, the annual festival is composed of a series of events for amateur cyclists and professionals that culminates in the London-Surrey Classic.

“The race is known for its high-octane categories, but we also maintain a friendly atmosphere that welcomes riders from all walks of life and expertise levels. Cycling is for everyone, whether they are professionals, amateurs, or hobbyists,” shared Prudential plc Communications Director John Oliver.

The Surrey 46 is a 46-mile route perfect for younger and amateur cyclists who want a taste of adrenaline. Meanwhile, families and those who want to enjoy the day on traffic-free roads can participate in the FreeCycle category. Beginners can join ride leaders who can accompany them at a relaxed and easy pace. This category also has an Inclusive Cycling Hub, where riders with disabilities can use adaptive bikes.

This welcoming environment is the result of the London mayor and the local transport unit’s goal of encouraging more people to cycle often. As part of the city’s program, the government has created more bike routes, infrastructures, parking spaces, community projects, and events. The program also works with schools and businesses to provide free bicycle training.

The growing interest in cycling can be seen in the city thanks to these efforts. Transport for London anticipates tens of thousands of locals to take up cycling after engaging in the event. The accessibility for bikes in the UK capital makes cycling the most popular transport option, especially during rush hour.

The vibrant cycling community is similarly growing in Manila. In fact, in a survey conducted by Pasig City Government’s City Transport Development & Management Office, 62% respondents who are non-cyclists have considered biking. Local government has started to roll out initiatives in an effort to promote cycling as a way to commute among Filipinos. For instance, bike lanes around the capital and neighboring cities like Pasig are increasing. In addition, legislators have proposed development of policies, infrastructure, and facilities to properly integrate bicycles as part of the public transportation system.

Pru Life UK aims to support this growth through its local efforts in promoting the activity. Earlier this year, PRURide PH 2019 witnessed more than 2,500 cyclists from across Asia take part in the Philippines’ largest cycling festival with 18 categories.

In addition, the British life insurer’s support and delegation to Prudential RideLondon was part of its We Do Health, a campaign to encourage healthy living in the Philippines. Celebrity ambassadors Kim Atienza, Gretchen Ho, and Zoren Legaspi joined the Gran Fondo, a non-competitive race in 30, 60, and 100-kilometer rides. As a continuation of their journey, they represented the Philippines in Prudential RideLondon, joined by Pru Life UK employees Kahlil Robles, Ryan Benguelo, and Nelsi Rabe.

The three celebrity ambassadors carry the advocacy of promoting health and fitness among Filipinos.

“As a life insurance company, we show our commitment to promoting healthy living and financial security,” said Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Marketing Officer Allan Tumbaga. “We hope to reach more Filipinos and send a message across that health plays a big role in the quality of our life. And cycling is an affordable, fun, and easy way to achieve this.”

Taiwan Excellence Inspires the Philippines in Information and Communication Technology

TAIWAN can certainly serve as the Philippines’ role model in information and communications technology (ICT), given its strong foothold in innovation.

For almost three decades, Taiwan has been highly regarded as a vital player in the global IT supply chain, as well as a significant partner for many international brands including Apple, Google, and Microsoft. The ICT sector has therefore become a huge source of pride for Taiwan.

Taiwanese companies hold significant market shares in semiconductors, PCs, mobile devices, broadband appliances, and display products and technologies. Taiwan is the world’s largest supplier of these products, collectively contributing to over 16% of Taiwan’s total GDP.

With the rise of AI and IoT, Taiwan is shifting from an economy based on high-tech manufacturing, to an economy driven by intellectual property and innovation. Taiwan’s high-tech competitiveness includes top talent, a well-developed industrial chain, and a formidable entrepreneurial spirit. These elements combined enable Taiwan’s ICT industry to leverage today’s trends and pave the way for the technology of the future.

The ‘Taiwan Excellence’ experience, organized by the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT) and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), will provide businesses ranging from small to large from the Philippines a platform to offer the latest IoT innovations, directly from leading Taiwanese IoT solutions providers. This is a great opportunity to consider how these solutions can enhance one’s own business offering.

The participating companies in this year’s Asia IoT Business Platform (AIBP) held at the Marriott Hotel, Manila are: Accton Technology Corp., a best practice awardee for manufacturing quality; Apacer Technology Inc., a leading producer of industrial SSDs, digital consumer products, and memory modules; Aver Information, award-winning education and communication innovators; ICP DAS, an industrial automation technology innovator and enhancer; and, IEI Integration Corp., a leading industrial computer provider.

‘Taiwan Excellence’ is confident in the Philippines’ ability to progress in ICT, as indicated by its IT sector’s steady spending. “We see progress in the Philippines’ ICT sector and Taiwan will be happy to contribute to this growth and help Filipino enterprises further succeed in their operations,” said Wen-Chung Chang, Director of the Economic Division, Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in the Philippines.

Taiwan is determined to advocate for innovation, improve employment and income distribution, and to create more balanced regional development, by leveraging the immense momentum of many markets, at present.

According to Swiss-based International Institute for Management Development (IMD), Taiwan moves up to 16th in global competitiveness, a notch higher from the previous year’s ranking. Furthermore, Taiwan has steadily maintained its place as the 4th most competitive economy in Asia as declared in the 2019 IMD World Competitiveness Ranking. With many software and hardware engineers and technological centers and innovation clusters growing organically throughout major Taiwanese cities, Taiwan is on its way to becoming a major startup hub in Asia, and even internationally.

Just how substantial is the potential global economic impact of IoT?
Citing a research report by McKinsey & Company’s Global Institute, ‘Taiwan Excellence’ said the estimate could range to “$3.9 trillion to $11 trillion a year by 2025”. McKinsey has continued a significant expansion In Taiwan with the recently launched regional industrial IoT hub in Taipei, due to its rapid growth in the past 18 months.

Factories could be the strongest driving force behind IoT’s generated value, followed by cities and health.

Ligo celebrates 65 years in the industry

For generations, Ligo Sardines has been a part of the Filipino household as a staple klasik that brings back memories of coming home and sharing a meal with loved ones. For its 65th anniversary, it brought together brand partners and friends from the media for an intimate gathering to celebrate its milestones.

“We are proud to be part of the household of many Filipino families here and abroad. As we move toward our seventh decade in the industry, we are excited to bring new innovations and products that will be part of the memories of future generations,” shares Ligo Vice President of Production Mikko Tung.

Ligo began in 1954 when Gregory Tung, Sr. opened A. Tung Chingco Trading, the exclusive distributor of Ligo products in the Philippines. The company partnered with Liberty Gold Fruit Co., Inc. in California, but put up its own cannery in 1980 to manufacture its goods and meet growing demand.

It expanded its products, offering mackerel, squid, corned beef, meatloaf, and tuna flakes. It also offered variants on its line of sardines, such as Gata, Spanish, Extra Hot, Kaldereta, and Afritada, and more. It quickly became a global phenomenon, and began exporting to the United States of America, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific Rim.

Ligo is currently run by the third generation of Tungs, who are working together to strengthen its commitment to putting quality first. Mikko Tung is joined by his brothers Mark, who oversees sales and marketing, and Macky, who handles advertising and promotion.

The celebration featured the Klasik Museum, where guests traveled back through time to reminisce the brand’s past, including its variants, old commercials, and print ads. They were also introduced to the brand’s 65th Anniversary visual, which represents its years in providing delicious flavors and excellent quality. Its retro art style is a reminder that indeed, “Walang Kupas ang Klasik.”

Tung also shared the success of the “Lami Ligo” campaign in Mindanao, which featured brand ambassador Tom Rodriguez and a popular local dish, Odong noodles with Ligo sardines. He also announced the success of the newly launched variant of Sriracha sardines, which became an instant favorite among consumers. The evening capped off with the unveiling of Ligo’s new and exciting product variants: Calamansi, and Fried Sardines in Oyster Sauce and in Portuguese Style¬, which will all be available in September; and Tuyo, which will be launched by the end of the year. Another highlight of the evening was the introduction of Carla Abellana as the newest brand ambassador.

Ligo Vice President for Advertising and Promotion Macky Tung expresses that “the brand welcomes new members, products, and variants to its family. Ligo still stays true to the promise it made 65 years ago: to provide quality sardines that will continue to become a Klasik in every Filipino household.”
