Thailand Will Not Be Experiencing Haze This Year According To Indonesia

Last week, Indonesia made a promise to Thailand as well as other neighbouring countries that they will not be experiencing haze this year. Tourists will now be able to enjoy their high rise hotel in Bangkok without worrying about air pollution. The country officials announced that they have already taken measures into making sure that forest fires do not happen. These new measures will guarantee that the smoke pollution that many countries in Southeast Asia have experience before will not happen again.

It is common between the months of June and October to see the entire country of Indonesia covered with haze because of the forest fires. Majority of these forest fires are done in order to clear lands, which will be used as a plantation for palm oil, pulp and paper production. These fires are happening on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra.

The fires that are started are mostly done in peatland that are highly flammable;thus, it is unavoidable for the fire to spread in areas that are not included in the plan. When this happens, smoke fire travels to neighbouring countries such as Malaysia and Singapore.

Last year, the government created an agency called the Peatland Restoration Agency, headed by NazirFoead, in an attempt to fight the fires from happening. The head of the agency is positive that what happened in 2015, the worst haze condition that originated in the country, will not be happening again.

Foead said that the government is preparing as much as they can and conducting rewetting activities. This is to ensure that the haze will not affect neighbouring countries.

During a conference that was held in Jakarta, Foead clarified that there will still be fire and smoke will be emitted but it can be easily stopped thus haze will not be travelling out of the boundaries of the nation. Locals and tourist in countries all over Southeast Asia will no longer have to worry about the haze and would be more confident in booking highrise hotel in Bangkok and other Asian cities. Foead added that they have been working in cooperation with farmersto make sure that they do not use the same technique in clearing land.

A Supercharged Sea Monster To Be Launched In Patong, Thailand

Patong is a town in Phuket that is immensely popular to tourists because of its nightlife, and shopping venues. In order to address the accommodation needs of a growing number of tourists, numerous hotels have been built along the beach.

Holidaymakers who frequently go to Phuket will be amazed when they see a supercharged sea monster from Gore on the popular beach destination. Dwayne Terry, a Southland entrepreneur and Keelow Crafts Boat owner has been reported last Saturday that is on his way to the tropical resort to launch a new jet boat venture called the Dragon Jet Thailand. According to Terry, this new business venture that was planned 5 months ago was inspired by last year’s family holiday in Thailand.

Terry has been working in China to help in setting up a new factory for Keelow Craft Boat. He wanted to experience the feeling of working and living abroad. When Terry took his family to spend a holiday in Thailand, he found out that there were no jet boat operators on the island. He believed that he found a good business opportunity which he should not miss.

Dragon Jet Thailand will initially operate as a single commercial Keelow Craft Boat at Patong Beach during the peak of the tourist season. During off season and when the seas in Patong start to get rough, Keelow Craft Boat will relocate to the Royal Phuket Marina.

An 18-seaterKeelow Craft Boat has a 750-hp, twin-Corvette engine and a twin Hamilton 212 jet units that could reach top speeds of 90kph when doing 360 degree turns. This is an example of the jet boats that are being used in New Zealand when they take a short thrill ride on the ocean.

Terry believes that doing business in Thailand is pretty straightforward and that the island country is rather protective of its tourism industry.

The best of Thailand can be experienced through a 4 star resort in Patong that offers terrific cuisine, excellent services and private rooms where you can enjoy the beauty of Patong’s coastline. There is ample space for relaxation but if you are quite adventurous, you can explore the generous swimming areas.

Life Sciences Take On Gap Analysis Improvements

Indian biopharmaceutical companies how now started adapting to improvements and developments in technology and ways of performing gap analysis. It is admittedly a slower adoption of these than in the US and EU markets.

Next Gen Sequencing has the ability to identify errant genes in quick and cost effective manner. This is an advancement to curing disease indications. With Big data and SMAC (social, mobile, analytics, and cloud) working together, the union of these three ways on how to perform gap analysis and ensuring the safety of the patients shows signs that value is being delivered at an increasing rate.

Ram Yeleswarapu, president and CEO of Take Solutions, has stated that although there is skepticism in using cloud computing in life sciences, use of social media with mobile platforms and analytics are rampant and continuously growing nowadays. When almost all sectors involved and working with pharma companies (such as vendors, suppliers, and partners) are using these technologies and tools, it is inevitable that usage of SMAC is a growing trend. The belief and realization that SMAC will deliver optimized and efficient solutions to the companies are now coming true.

In addition, Yeleswaparu also noted that another emerging trend in technology for data gathering of quality patient and volunteer data is rising. This is Internet of Things (IoT) and together with Social Media patient groups, IoT is beginning to provide results in the reduction of the complexity of data gathering especially for pivotal trials of non-critical diseases. The only problem is that the devices needed costs a lot and there is a need for a methodology that will help in device recalibration and stabilization.

The continuous developments in technology and pressures due to higher investments and expectations have pushed pharma companies to innovate and be efficient. Even manufacturing locations are now being closely considered due to manufacturing concerns. For Take Solutions, it just doesn’t end in drug development but in post-approval as well. The improved regulations are driving these adoptions of new technologies.

A company’s capability on how to perform a gap analysis and provide a path to efficiency matters. Pharma companies need to realize that the global regulations and alignment with market forces will inevitably help these markets be sustainable and able to stay in the competing market for a long time.
