International Youth Innovation and Enterprise Skills Competition – UK Final

(note: Apr 1)

In partnership with London South Bank University (LSBU), NCEE, NCEE (China), IEEAC-HVC and SimVenture, Sinocampus is delighted to be part of the 2nd International Youth Innovation and Enterprise Skills Competition.

The event was open to students currently studying for a college qualification or undergraduate degree in their respective country. Bringing together hundreds of students from different parts of the world, the competition required teams to run a virtual company using the business simulation ‘SimVenture Classic’.

Student teams were then assessed on how well they ran their virtual company through judge observation and then scored on their group presentation.

Building on the successes of the 2018 inaugural event the 2019 UK final will run from 2nd to 4th April 2019 and host 20 teams from across the UK and China.

Press Release

Swansea’s China links to be strengthened

Senior government officials from a major Chinese city are due to forge new links with Swansea this week (note: Oct 11).

A visiting party of six from Yingtan will meet Lord Mayor Philip Downing, deputy council leader Clive Lloyd and other civic figures in the Guildhall on Wednesday.

Cllr Downing and his guests plan to sign a letter of intent of mutual cooperation between the two cities.

Cllr Lloyd said: “It will be a pleasure to meet our visitors and to discuss how we can work together for the benefit of both communities.

“It’s crucial that Swansea has strong ties around the world so we plan to make a strong and lasting impression on the people of Yingtan.”

The visit is being arranged by Sinocampus which introduces UK bodies to opportunities available in China. Swansea councillor Mike Day is a director and founder of Sinocampus UK.

Cllr Day said: “Our visitors hope to establish a ‘sister city’ relationship with Swansea, with a focus on education and cultural exchanges.

“Most of the delegates are senior government officials from Yingtan, in China’s Jiangxi province. Two are from the counties under Yingtan City’s jurisdiction.

“They represent a range of local government departments and organisations.”

The visitors, who will have travelled around 6,000 miles to reach Swansea, will see a presentation on Swansea and will tour the Brangwyn Hall.

They will hear about Swansea Council’s structure and human resources operation.

Swansea already has mutual cooperation agreements with the Chinese areas of Wuhan and Gaochun along with formal links with other areas around the world.

Yingtan

The city of Yingtan, in the southeastern province of Jiangxi, has 1.3 million residents.

It’s an important transport hub and has a thriving copper industry along with industrial strength in water meters, glass and energy-saving lighting.

Yingtan is a centre for the religious or philosophical tradition of taoism and has strong tourist appeal, with major attractions in natural heritage and human history.

It is an emerging “smart city”, embracing digital technology and high-tech innovation.
