(From the left to right) Ms. Vanessa Tang, Director of Shaanxi Liaison Unit of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Mr. Li Weibin, Chairman and Managing Director of Chinlink International Holdings Limited, and Mr. Franky Chung, Senior Vice President, Issuer Services, Hong Kong Stock Exchange shared their views of deepening the financial cooperation between Hong Kong and Shaanxi on the 2nd Shaanxi-Hong Kong Financial Cooperation Forum.

Xi'an, CHINA, June 12, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Chinlink International Holdings Limited ("Chinlink", HKSE Stock Code: 0997) and its subsidiaries (collectively the "Group") are pleased to announce the success of the 2nd Shaanxi-Hong Kong Financial Cooperation Forum (the "Forum"), organised by the Shaanxi Provincial Department of Commerce, Financial Affairs Office of Shaanxi Province and Shaanxi Liaison Unit of The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government with Chinlink as the co-organiser. The forum brought more than 260 guests together, ranging from the government of Shaanxi Province and Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, to guests from Hong Kong and overseas including leading legal and accounting firms specialising in corporate finance, top executives of new economy and technology companies and international financial institutions. The attendees discussed ways to deepen the financial cooperation between Hong Kong and Shaanxi, and the opportunities arising from Shaanxi resurging as a global technology hub.

Mr. Xue Jiangxing, Deputy Secretary-General of the People's Government of Shaanxi Province addressed, Shaanxi will further open up the financial sector and strengthen its innovation on the financial system in the China (Shaanxi) Pilot Free Trade Zone. It may lower or even eliminate barriers for foreign players in particular with banks, security firms, and insurance companies, so as to attract foreign capitals to enter the financial sector. Mr. Xue also asserted Shaanxi's leeway to the eligible companies seeking IPO in Hong Kong. Mr. Xue expressed his support to facilitate the financial cooperation between Hong Kong and Shaanxi in promoting local technology companies. He believes that such arrangement will help introduce advanced and mature international capital market knowledge to China, thus connecting Shaanxi new technologies with global capital. He also fully affirmed that the Forum would continue to provide a diversified exchange platform in bridging local enterprises with international capital in the future.

In recent years, Xi'an has been actively promoting the commercialisation of its locally-developed technologies by rolling out multiple favourable policies and creating a RMB100-billion industry fund to boost hard technological development. Xi'an realises hard technologies as a new driver in promoting economic growth, technological advancement and influx of capital and industries, representing great potential in transforming Xi'an into the model city of innovation. Propelled by the favourable policies, numerous Xian-based technology companies have emerged as valuable unicorns of respective industries and thus are well-received by the capital market.

Considering technology companies' different fundraising needs throughout their various development stages, Chinlink invited experts from corporate finance, professional firms, and venture funds to help attendees understand what the best way to raise international capital is. Many guests expressed that they benefitted from the discussions, while investors learned about investment opportunities in Shaanxi science and technology enterprises.

Mr. Franky Chung, Senior Vice President of Issuer Services from HKEx was one the guest speakers, who gave a presentation on new listing reforms in Hong Kong for the benefit of tech companies. He said that the Stock Connect has significantly lifted the trade volume of Hong Kong stock market in the past year. it would be favourable to the valuation of the Hong Kong listed companies in the long run as increasing number of Mainland fund houses strategically allocate assets on Hong Kong listed companies via the Stock Connect, infusing catalysts to the Hong Kong stock markets. He also expected more Shaanxi companies become eligible to leverage the international fundraising platform of Hong Kong under the latest listing rule framework.

Mr. Li Weibin, the Chairman and Managing Director of Chinlink, said, "Based in Shaanxi with established presence in Hong Kong and expanding around the world, Chinlink has developed ample resources and expertise on the international and Hong Kong capital markets. In light of the sharing economy, we aim at leveraging on our competitive advantages to position ourselves as a platform in bridging Hong Kong and Shaanxi financial market. We are dedicated to connect Shaanxi local enterprises with the well-established Hong Kong capital market, thus promoting the economic growth and development in both Hong Kong and Shaanxi. We are honoured to launch this year's Forum together with the governments, and we are determined to turn this into a sustainable platform. To further our contribution on the closer cooperation of finance and the capital markets between Hong Kong and Shaanxi, upon the completion of the Chinlink International Centre in the near future which forms the permanent venue for holding regular financial seminars, Xi'an companies will definitely have more convenience access to international capital."

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches.

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model.

However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes. Writing these YAMLs, Dockerfile descriptors are really painful and error prone.Ballerina is a new cloud-native programing language which understands the architecture around it - the compiler is environment aware of microservices directly deployable into infra...
Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will ...
