Behind the Wheel: The Goodwood Estate, in the fast lane for sustainable growth

What does the English ancestral home to the Dukes of Richmond have in common with one of the largest capital goods companies in the world? The Goodwood Estate and CNH Industrial: two global, multi-faceted businesses with a reputation for excellence in their various fields are committed to finding new, innovative and sustainable ways of working. Nowhere does this become more apparent than on Goodwood’s own Home Farm. Find out how an unlikely pairing became a successful partnership in the latest Behind the Wheel webisode: cnhindustrial.com/goodwood_en

London, May 13, 2019

The Goodwood name is synonymous with some of the most glamorous and iconic sporting events in the world but behind the scenes, working tirelessly to support the Estate, is its very own fully organic farm. Sustainability and organic farming are amongst Goodwood’s core values, values which are shared by CNH Industrial (NYSE: CNHI /MI: CNHI), a company at the forefront in the development and implementation of alternative fuel vehicles, precision farming and telematic solutions. The Company’s brands CASE Construction Equipment, New Holland Agriculture and IVECO are all involved in the partnership with Goodwood, from tractors to combines, from excavators to wheel loaders, to supplying commercial vehicles – no other single company could support all of the Estate’s varied vehicle needs.

Nestling in the rolling hills of the South Downs near the south coast of England, the farm has one of Britain’s first 100% organically fed dairy herds, and is also home to a flock of sheep, suckler cows and pigs. A “closed loop” system has been created where all the fodder for the animals is grown on the farm which in turn also runs its own butchery, bottles its own milk and makes its own cheeses. Most of the farm’s produce is delivered to the restaurants on the Estate and around the South East of the UK as well as used at the various sporting events.

This latest episode of Behind the Wheel shows the partnership at work and demonstrates how CNH Industrial’s brands are working together with Goodwood to help increase efficiency, productivity and sustainability on the Estate: cnhindustrial.com/goodwood_en

CIFTIS 2019 to Shape the New Pattern of China’s Comprehensive Opening-up

BEIJING, May 13, 2019 – (Antara/ACN Newswire) – This year’s “Two Sessions” (National People’s Congress, Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference) sent a positive message to the world that China will deepen reform and expand opening-up. The China International Fair for Trade In Services (CIFTIS), co-hosted by the Ministry of Commerce and the Beijing Municipality, has been running successfully for five years while becoming the leading exhibition for service industries in China and the world’s largest for Trade In Services. CIFTIS 2019 will be held in Beijing from May 28 to June 1 under the theme of “Opening-up, Innovation, Intelligence and Integration”.

To promote China’s expanded opening-up and deepening reforms, celebrating the national character on the 70th anniversary of the nation’s founding, continuing Belt and Road achievements following the second forum, and driving high-quality development of China’s service industries and trade in services, CIFTIS 2019 follows the guidance of “Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era”, and China’s new development concepts. CIFTIS will continue to implement China’s opening-up strategy and emphasize exchange and cooperation in international trade in services, actively pushing for the facilitation and liberalization of global trade in service policies, building the economic power of trade in services while promoting an open world economy.

This year’s CIFTIS has 5 major features:

i. Highlighting expansion of opening-up in service industries and trade in services, contributing to building a new pattern of comprehensive opening-up.

CIFTIS will implement China’s strategy of expanding opening-up, displaying the 68 achievements made during the first two batches of Beijing’s expansion of opening-up in service industry and China’s opening-up measures such as free trade pilot zone, promoting Beijing’s new round of pilot policies for expansion of opening-up in the service industries, standards of trade in service, rule-making and system construction, advancing further opening-up and cooperation in global trade in services and contributing to building a community sharing the future for mankind.

ii. Stressing internationalization and deepening international Belt and Road cooperation on trade in services.

CIFTIS will invite countries from along the ‘Belt and Road’, the 30 top countries and regions of trade in services, 14 countries that signed trade in services agreements with China, and international trade associations and well-known enterprises across service industries and trade in services to participate in the fair.

iii. Emphasizing innovation-driven, intelligent development, integration and improvement; leading the innovation and development of service industries and trade in services.

CIFTIS actively implements innovation-driven development strategies, exhibiting new models, businesses, services, and technologies such as artificial intelligence and 5G as applied in service field; promotes innovation achievements in manufacturing, healthcare, and personal services, the digitization and intelligence of service industry and trade in services; facilitates integrated development between service industries including the modern service industry and advanced manufacturing, culture and tourism, and between trade in services and service consumers.

Other venues include Wangfujing Business Street, Financial Street, the Central Business District, Huilonguan and Tiantongyuan areas, and others.

As the world economy is in slow recovery and China’s economy enters a stage of high-quality development following its rapid growth, the development of trade in services faces a range of new challenges.
