Putting The Supply Back In Supply Chain Integration System? — Nisun Claims To Have Solutions To The Crisis

Nisun International Enterprise Development Group Co., Ltd

Disruptions to the supply chain have caused massive economic damage in the past couple of years. Restrictions on global supply networks meant that the average country lost over $180 billion to supply chain disruptions while the U.S. lost $228 billion, according to a recent survey. However, these setbacks may also provide potential new opportunities as those both upstream and downstream in the supply chain seek new innovations. Some U.S. companies that managed to protect their supply chain despite global disruptions reportedly include technology company Cisco Systems Inc. and pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson. Nisun International Enterprise Development Group Co. Ltd. is one example of a company looking to fill the supply chain management vacuum. Based in China, Nisun aims at a sophisticated supply chain integration (SCI) through an ecosystem that it reports is made to fulfill all the financial and logistical needs of partnering companies. It is seeking to solve the integration of industry and finance to create a supply chain system serving as an essential intermediary in both upstream and downstream transactions. It also has the goal of helping small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which it says it accomplishes by providing SMEs with capital access through a closed-loop financial technology platform. Learn More about Nisun International Enterprise Development Group Co., Ltd by gaining access to the latest research report! Linking Businesses For A Stronger Supply Chain Nisun is focusing its partnership efforts in five industries: e-commerce, gold, coal, chemical and agriculture, aiming to create a network out of this $305 billion cluster. The company seeks to provide collaborators with logistics and warehousing along with modernized financial services. One example of SME collaboration Nisun provides is with the merchants in the Henan Wanbang International Agricultural Product Logistics Park. Fintech (Shanghai) Supply Chain Management Co. Ltd ( Fintech Digital,) a supply-chain management subsidiary of Nisun, serves agricultural merchants by providing them with financial and logistical solutions. The downstream merchants place purchase applications, which Fintech Digital then negotiates and fulfills with its network of upstream suppliers, ensuring quick response to merchant product needs. Nisun also partnered with two companies to help with streamlining and digitizing the agricultural goods supply chain in late 2021. Through its partnerships with Sichuan Wanglianxing Agricultural Technology Development Co. Ltd. and Henan Xingyue Communication Technology Co. Ltd., Nisun hopes to bring its supply-chain expertise and resources to China’s National Rural Revitalization Program and modernization of the Chinese agricultural industry. A subsidiary of Fintech Digital and a controlled affiliate of Nisan, Fanlunke Supply Chain Management (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. signed a deal with Yunnan Pinhutang Distillery Co. Ltd., which brings them into the Chinese medical market. This supply-chain and procurement contract, with the plan to expand to sales, hopes to maximize the upstream and downstream market trading and meet the greater demand for Pinhutang products, which are available on online stores such as JD.com Inc. and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. Through these strategic partnerships, Nisun may help produce solutions to the supply-chain crisis and make itself a bigger player in the supply chain. It claims its current success will continue into the future and maintain its 74% annual growth year on year. Similar companies in the supply chain and fintech space include NETSOL Technologies NTWK, 360 DigiTech, Inc. QFIN, Katapult Holdings KPLT, and FinVolution Gr FINV To learn more about Nisun, click here.

Industry Challenges Aren’t Why Workers Are Quitting

Great Place to Work

Your industry has little to do with whether you can offer an employee experience that outshines the competition. Organizations on this year’s Fortune Best Workplaces lists across 11 industries in 2022 show that companies that prioritize their people can offer better outcomes for workers no matter which industry they’re in. “Great leaders understand that the responsibility to inspire and engage their people is on them —and only them,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work®. “I know it’s easy to blame the industry and not your company, but try not to. We can do better for our people, and there’s nothing preventing any company from doing just that.” Workers at the Fortune Best Workplaces in Health Care report nearly identical levels of meaningful work as those at winning technology companies at 90% and 86%, respectively. Those levels drop to 62% in tech and 59% in health care at typical workplaces, according to a Great Place To Work survey of nearly 4,200 U.S. employees. The average tech company offers one of the most positive experiences among typical workplaces — 72% of employees on average report that theirs is a “great place to work.” The Fortune Best Workplaces in Construction surpass those scores — 94% of employees report having a great place to work. Great Place To Work determined the Best Workplaces lists by analyzing data from nearly 1 million employees at qualifying companies in 11 industries: Manufacturing & Production Health Care Consulting & Professional Services Financial Services & Insurance Advertising & Marketing Retail Aging Services Real Estate Construction BioPharma Technology Purpose drives retention in every industry Meaningful work — the belief that one’s work is “not just a job” — is a key indicator of retention in all 11 industries surveyed. Despite evidence that some industries are losing talent, meaningful work doubles an employee’s intent to stay in their job long-term. Take the retail sector: • 38% of employees at a typical retail workplace report meaningful work. • 79% of employees at the Fortune Best Workplaces in Retail report meaningful work. • Retail employees who report meaningful work are three to five times as likely to stay in their role. Industry is no excuse for poor well-being. It’s too easy to believe some industries can’t offer work-life balance, healthy work lifestyles or flexible work options. The Best Workplaces prove this assumption wrong. For the typical health care organization, only 55% of employees report being encouraged to find a healthy work-life balance. At the Best Workplaces in Health Care, that percentage jumps to 87%. Visuals available: GPTW Best Workplaces by Industry Lists 2022 About the Fortune Best Workplaces by Industry Great Place to Work® selected the Best Workplaces™ for each of the 11 industries in 2022 based on feedback collected from nearly 1 million employee responses from qualifying Great Place To Work Certified™ organizations in the United States. Company rankings are derived from 60 employee experience questions within the Great Place to Work Trust Index™ Survey. Read the full methodology for all 11 lists. To get on this list next year, start here. About Great Place To Work® Great Place To Work® is the global authority on workplace culture. Since 1992, it has surveyed more than 100 million employees worldwide and used those deep insights to define what makes a great workplace: trust.

EC Holdings Launches Global Investment Migration Services

EC Holdings

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 2 September 2022 - Global investment migration firm, EC Holdings, commences operations with the launch of its Singapore Headquarters and the appointment of the Hon. Philippe A. May as Chief Executive Officer. Recognising the value of acquiring alternative residence and citizenship-by-investment (CBI) migration in the 21 st century, the highly experienced leadership team offer advice and expertise, enabling greater flexibility, security and access to the world’s major economies. Channelling over a decade of experience in Estate and Investment Immigration Planning, Private Banking, Insurance, and Diplomacy, EC Holdings Co-Founder, the Hon. Philippe A. May, has been appointed CEO. Most recently the Managing Director of Arton Capital (Singapore) Pte Ltd, Philippe is a qualified Associate Financial Planner (AFP™), an Associate Estate Planning Practitioner (AEPP®) and a member of the Financial Planner Association of Singapore (FPAS). “As a Singaporean, I am immensely proud to lead the first global investment immigration company headquartered here. HNWIs are paying more attention to their residence and citizenship portfolio. Our team of experienced, licensed partners are able to offer the best solutions across 5 continents. We have our own offices on site in most of our investment immigration destinations, so clients can rest assured that they are in the best hands,” said the Hon. Philippe A. May, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of EC Holdings. Co-Founder and Chairman, Kevin A. D. Hosam, and Co-Founder, Martin St. Hilaire, complete the EC Holdings Founding team. Collectively, the threesome boast more than a quarter of a century of experience in investment migration; thus, EC Holdings are able to seamlessly navigate complex and ever-changing systems and legalities to present best-in-class solutions based on the requirements, family size, and education credentials of each individual client. “I have been in the CBI industry since Antigua and Barbuda started its citizenship program. Now, I am looking forward to extending the outreach of our citizenship program through our network of senior RCBI professionals under the roof of one new global company - EC Holdings,” said Kevin A. D. Hosam, Co-Founder and Chairman of EC Holdings. Aside from the senior leadership team, EC Holdings has partnered strategically with specialist agents in key operational markets (Bahamas, Latvia, Nigeria, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia and Türkiye) bringing them on as equity partners. With ample local knowledge and insights, these partners strengthen the hands-on approach employed by EC Holdings. “Amongst the unique solutions of EC Holdings are services in Vanuatu, Bahamas, Uruguay, Latvia and Paraguay, which no global investor immigration firm offers so far. I have lived in Vanuatu for the past 20 years and am a citizen myself, so I am looking forward to enabling more clients to reap the benefits of Vanuatu Citizenship,” said Martin St. Hilaire, Co-Founder of EC Holdings. Fuelled by increased global uncertainty and the restrictions thrust upon freedom during the COVID-19 pandemic, EC Holdings identified an uptick in the number of clients desiring alternative citizenship and residency options. Increased global mobility is a strong pull factor for clients seeking escape from political or economic threat, new business opportunities, and the option to swiftly move to a new jurisdiction. Access to improved healthcare, education services and a more comfortable way of life are further reasons for seeking migration through investment, whilst reduction of tax burdens and fiscal and family planning are other key factors. As the first and only global investor migration firm with solutions in the Bahamas, Latin America, Latvia and Vanuatu along with the more familiar countries such as Saint Lucia and Portugal, EC Holdings offers two kinds of programs; citizenship-by-investment and residency-by-investment. Citizenship-by-investment programs offer clients the privilege of acquiring a second citizenship and the right to travel freely to various destinations and settle in another county. EC Holdings meticulously and constantly review investment migration legislation from over 100 countries globally and select the most beneficial and successful investment citizenship programs for clients. Meanwhile, residency-by-investment programs enable opportunities to move, live, work, study, and receive health care in a new country of residence. EC Holdings offers expert advice on residency-by-investment programs in some of the best places in the world in terms of business environment, quality of life and opportunity.

Bernie Sanders Fined $15,000 by FEC for Hiring of Foreign Nationals

Coolidge Reagan Foundation

First Amendment watchdog Coolidge Reagan Foundation (CRF), on the heels of securing a record 6-figure fine against Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the DNC, announced it has secured a five-figure fine against Senator Bernie Sanders. In a filing not yet made public, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) acted on a 2019 Complaint CRF filed exposing illegal activity by the Bernie Sanders campaign. The CRF Complaint exposed how the Bernie Sanders campaign hired foreign nationals in violation of federal election laws designed to prevent international actors from meddling in U.S. elections. As part of a conciliation agreement with the FEC, the Bernie Sanders campaign must pay a fine of $15,000. Additionally, the Sanders campaign must agree not to contest the findings of the FEC and must cease and desist from further law-breaking. “I find it incredibly ironic and not at all surprising that the same people who were so outraged by the Russia hoax were at the same time violating laws to prevent foreign influence in our elections,” said Dan Backer Counsel to Coolidge Reagan Foundation. “The Bernie Sanders campaign got caught willfully and knowingly allowing foreign nationals to participate in the strategy, planning, and tactical implementation of campaign activity.” The original Complaint may be found here. The Conciliation Agreement will be posted by the FEC within the next 30 days. The Complaint alleged in part that, “…Due to the high profile of Cesar Vargas, Erika Andiola, and Maria Belén Sisa as leading activists in the undocumented community, there is reason to believe that respondents are ‘foreign nationals'…and in violation of…directly or indirectly participated in the decision-making process of persons with regard to the election-related activities…” The Bernie Sanders Conciliation Agreement follows another recent Coolidge Reagan victory at the FEC from a 2018 Complaint resulting in a $113,000 fine against Hillary for America and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for lying about their funding of the Russia Hoax dossier. “Our track record is strong. We went after Hillary, and we won. We went after Comrade Bernie, and we won, again,” Backer continued. “While those on the radical left may not care about the truth, we do. Our determination is unwavering, and we expect the FEC will agree with us again as we call out additional violations in FEC Complaints we have filed.” ### Please visit https://www.coolidgereagan.org/.
