Shanghai Intex Exhibition to Host Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai 2019

SHANGHAI, Dec. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — From April 20-22, 2019, Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai, the flower and horticulture expo, will be hosted by Shanghai Intex Exhibition at Shanghai New International Expo Center (Hall W2-W5). This will be the 21st edition of the show and will provide 50,000 m2 of floorspace.

Chinese flower and horticultural consumption has changed over the years, from consumption for big events to consumption on an individual, daily-life basis. The consumption pattern is more personalized and diversified. Although regions such as Yunnan, Shandong, and Guangdong are the main horticultural producers in China, China still requires more high-quality imported variety to meet the needs of consumption.

For both major brands and small businesses to release new products in China, attending Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai is a must. The show will bring the latest trends and technologies of flower, horticultural and garden industries to the world again.

Hortiflorexpo IPM is organized by China Flower Association and managed by Shanghai Intex Exhibition and China Great Wall International Exhibition. For 20 years, it has been consistently supported and praised by the industry and has become the most prestigious show in Asia. In 2017, it welcomed close to 800 exhibitors from nearly 30 countries, which were organized into 9 pavilions to exhibit their latest products and ideas.

In 2019, the show will be expanded to 50,000m2, with a larger scale and better-managed overall layout. Exhibits will include flowers, horticulture, floriculture, gardening, outdoor entertainment and relevant supporting products.

A series of fringe programs is again planned for Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai 2019. In 2017, the latest trends were shared during flower arrangement shows and industrial forums such as Holland Day, Chinese Technology and Application Research Conference for New Garden Products and Young Plants, Vertical Greening and Sponge City Forum, Nursery Plant Technology Promotion Conference, Home Gardening Forum, and Micro Bonsai Conference.

With the increasingly mature consumer market in China, it is more necessary to strengthen inter-industry and cross-industry exchanges and cooperation between countries and learn from each other. The 21st Hortiflorexpo IPM Shanghai will undoubtedly bring a new wave of “green development” to create an international platform for information exchange, innovation linkage and brand service.

Barbershop Tool Box launched

Lilongwe: Government has said it believes men could be used as change agents and defenders of women’s rights in the country.

Minister of Gender, Children, Disability and Welfare, Cecilia Chazama made the remarks Friday at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe when she officially launched National Barbershop Tool-Box initiative in Malawi.

She said the promotion of women’s rights could not be achieved if men are completely left out in the process hence the need to involve them fully in all related activities.

Chazama noted that the Barbershop-toolbox offers men a critical role to ensure that they are not left alone in the issues of promoting women’s right and curbing gender based violence among societies.

A dialogue in the male spaces such as beer halls, religious places and political parties has the power to stop negative social norms and practices that undermine the rights of women and girls. We must shift the dialogue in these platforms where men begin to question the values and belief systems that have for so long perpetrated discriminatory behaviour and impunity against women and girls in our society, she pointed out.

The Minister observed that toolbox compliments the initiatives being spearheaded by President Peter Mutharika as one of the nine Global HeforShe Impact Champions since 2015.

She said the President sets a great example and demonstrates political will at the highest level of Government.

Through the HeforShe Movement, men are taking part to sensitise other men, build rapport and engage communities in tackling stereotypes and begin to champion change of negative masculinities. The Tool Box builds synergies and complementarity of effort, Chazama added.

She said government has committed to implement Marriage, Divorce and Family Relations Act (2015), End Violence Against Women and Empower Women Economically in the country which has seen a strong change and movement that is being led by traditional leaders and other prominent figures.

The Minister said that in line with these initiatives that Government embraces the Barbershop Toolbox as a tool that provides tested guidance on male engagement at all the levels to become leaders in changing the gender and women empowerment narratives.

Chazama pointed out that the launch was an important toolbox within the 16 Days of Activism Campaign against Gender Based Violence whose national theme for this year is End Gender Based Violence in the World of Work and Tertiary Institutions.

Men and boys have a crucial role in eliminating violence against women since they are perpetrators in many cases. The theme surely speaks of the main spaces where most men are found in their day today activities. Most of the leaders are males, whose joining the HeforShe Campaign can change the welfare and status of women at the place of work by promoting equity, she added:

Chazama thanked Government of Iceland and UN Women for choosing the country to be among the pioneers to rollout the Barbershop Tool Box Initiative.

The Minister stated that the Government of Iceland through Iceland International Development Agency (ICEIDA) is a true partner in many areas including the promotion of gender equality.

She commended UN Women for the strong commitment to ensure that the HeforShe Campaign yield the desirable results at all the levels.

UN Women representative to Malawi, Clara Anyangwe said advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment requires innovative and inclusive approach.

She said one of such approaches is that which recognizes men and boys as partners for women’s and girl’s rights in which acknowledges the ways in which men and boys could benefit from this equality.

The HeforShe initiatives goes beyond awareness and it is about meaningful action by providing clear opportunities to stand up for gender equality by taking decisive action an inspiring others to do the same, Anyangwe added.

ICEIDA Charge d’ Affaires, Agusta Gisladottir said the Barbershop initiative was introduced in 2014 in Iceland as one way of promoting gender equality.

She said the development of the initiative has helped men and boys to realize their roles in promoting gender equality issues within their communities.

LSPCA celebrates 10 years of mission

Lilongwe: Lilongwe Society for the Protection and Care of Animals (LSPCA) on Saturday celebrated 10 years of improving animal health and welfare in the country.

In her speech, LSPCA Executive Director, Lieza Swennen said in Malawi, the organization was established in 2008 by a group of Malawian veterinary professionals and committed animal welfare partners.

We are working together with Department of Animal Health and Livestock Development under the Ministry of Agriculture to improve animal health and welfare, she said at Kanengo-Salima turn off offices in Lilongwe.

She pointed out that the organization also works together with the Malawi Police Services and the Lilongwe city council to ease increase of selling live animals in roadside within city boundaries noting that such tendency exposes animals to cruelty, an increase in rabies cases and other diseases.

She added that since 2008, LSPCA delivers mass dog rabies vaccination campaigns to fight against the transmission of terrible fatal rabies disease that is affecting people and animals in the country.

According to the ED, the country is experiencing a marked increase in dog population and several dog bite cases which are reported to the hospitals for post exposure prophylaxis so they offer free spay and neuter services to dogs and cats.

In a separate interview, Director of the Department of Animal Health and Livestock Development, Dr Patrick Chikungwa who was the guest of honor, commended LSPCA saying it is the first large veterinary hospital status in the country.

He said since 2008, ten thousands of animals have been treated on site and through mobile clinics mostly dogs, cats and donkeys.

This has in essence demonstrated the success in the transformation agenda which the government is advocating for the promotion of ‘public and private partnership’ as a key tool towards better service delivery for the social-economic development of Malawi, Chikungwa said.

Furthermore, he said for the past three years, LSPCA has partnered with Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (Luanar) to provide essential clinical training to the veterinary students through its outreach programs.

This practical training is delivering important skills to our first generation of home-educated veterinary professionals which will contribute to the development of our country, he said.

He pointed out that the ministry has introduced National Rabies Task Force (NRTF) to ensure that the government achieves zero human deaths from rabies in Malawi, before the agreed international targeted years of 2030.
