We are taking actions against the Coronavirus|High Fashion’s fight at the frontline
The Coronavirus outbreak demands effective response. It is crucial for us to undertake the responsibility to prevent and control the spread of the virus.The Coronavirus outbreak has turned the festive Lunar New Year holidays in 2020 into a race against time. The nation has come together as one to battle against the novel virus. All levels of governments have been collaborating closely; medical workers across the country have been mobilised; and the community has given generous support and help.On 23 January, the Zhejiang Provincial Government enacted the country’s highest level of public health emergency response. High Fashion (China) understands the importance of complying with the infection control regulations set up by the government. We have high vigilance towards the outbreak. Having observed the actual situation of our company, we swiftly began preparation for a comprehensive infection prevention system.1、Holistic planning to ensure accurate implementation of measuresHigh Fashion identified the need to develop contingency plans and measures for infection prevention a year ago. In response to the Coronavirus, the Company established a “Coronavirus Emergency Taskforce”, which comprises staff from middle to top level management and also those who are appointed to take up a position in handling the emergency. At the same time, the Company has set up work teams that are responsible for education and promotion, infection prevention and control, and resource management. This clear division of work would ensure accountability.To improve the coordination of our work, we have implemented the “daily reporting system” to collect information about the progress of infection prevention. Video conferences are held every day through software like WeChat, ZOOM and DingTalk so that we can modify plans, reallocate resources and step up our overall effort. Having understood our responsibility as a corporate, we rise to the challenge by being proactive and fast.2、Keeping a close watch on employees’ situationsHaving utilised Big Data technology, we developed an information collection platform for employees who have returned to their hometowns during the Lunar New Year holidays. This platform collects information such as employees’ travel and contact histories, health conditions and the situation of their residences. We have been paying special attention to employees who are in areas that are severely affected by the Coronavirus.The data collected were thoroughly analysed and then provided to each department. This is to ensure that the departments receive accurate updates about their workers, which is crucial for developing further measures.3、Monitoring the health conditions of all employeesThe health declaration form was designed and are being distributed. Employees who are staying at company dormitories have to declare their health conditions and other relevant information for monitoring. Each employee’s information is systematically filed. Those who are returning to Hangzhou or to their respective job positions later will also be required to fill in the health declaration form. For those who do not meet the conditions of coming back to work, they will be asked to go home or resume work at a later date.4、Educating employees about effective infection prevention practicesInformation such as the nature of and ways to prevent Coronavirus infection has been shared to employees through online and offline channels. We place high emphasis on promoting knowledge in infection prevention and control. We maintain close communication with employees through online official accounts, notice boards and by posting huge banners. Employees are constantly reminded to protect themselves and not to believe in or spread false information.5、Real-time communication between infection prevention/control work teams and employeesA WeChat group was opened such that special arrangements and information about work commencement can be communicated to employees immediately.6、SterilisationWork areas and dormitories are sterilised. Every corner of the public areas such as car parks, office space, dormitory corridors, elevators and toilets are disinfected thoroughly to avoid the spread of the virus.7、24-hour shift to guard the entry and exit of workers-Holiday was cancelled for key persons who are in charge of infection prevention and control, and also for relevant departments. A 24-hour shift system is arranged to allow enclosed management. The entry and exit of individuals in work areas and dormitories are carefully monitored. Stations are set up at each entrance for people to register personal information and health conditions, and do mandatory temperature checks. If one shows symptoms of being infected, corresponding measures will be taken.8、Ensuring adequate supply of medical resourcesAlthough there is a shortage of medical supply across the nation, we have successfully solicited help from providers to ensure that there is sufficient stock of face masks, gloves, alcohol, sterilising fluid and infra-red thermometers. This is essential for effective infection prevention and control.During this period of hardship, our employees, members of this wonderful and close-knit family, have been working tirelessly to push forward the initiatives of infection prevention and control. Even though it will take time for the Coronavirus outbreak to end, we firmly believe that with our determination and also the help of medical advances, we will be able to win this hard battle together.

China International Import Expo (CIIE) | Congratulations to High Fashion Business Park for Officially Awarded as the Extended Platform of the Shanghai CIIE and the Hongqiao Pinhui Zhejiang Centre (Han
On 5 November 2019, the highly anticipated Second China International Import Expo (CIIE) officially kicked off. Xi Jinping, President of the People's Republic of China, delivered a keynote speech on "Openness and Cooperation for a Shared Future" at the opening ceremony of the CIIE. In this open and shared global event, participants from all over the world forge friendship and discuss business opportunities with each other.On 4 November, on the eve of President Xi Jinping’s strongest calling for "opening up", the "Oriental Expo Night" cum 2019 Supply-Demand Matchmaking Conference of CIIE, jointly organized by the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government Cooperation and Exchange Office, the Changning District People’s Government and Orient International (Holding) Co., Ltd. was grandly held in Shanghai.Well Lam, Managing Director of High Fashion (China) Co., Ltd. was invited to attend the conference, and witnessed a more open and shared Chinese mind with 100 exhibitors from 33 countries and regions on 5 continents.—— Strategic Partnership Signing Ceremony ——Devoting ourselves to silk fashion for 41 years, High Fashion has laid solid industrial foundation and gathered high-quality resources at home and abroad. High Fashion (China) Co., Ltd. has already successfully signed a strategic cooperation agreement and extended cooperation agreement with Shanghai Hongqiao International Import Commodities Exhibition Co., Ltd. on 25 September.This indicates that from now on, High Fashion will follow the principles of “carrier integration, platform co-construction, information co-sharing, and demand co-solving”, play its role functioning as a business park and platform, and continue to promote and deepen the "365-day" transaction service platform construction in Zhejiang (Hangzhou), a key area in the Yangtze River Delta, so that the benefits of CIIE will reach more cities, enterprises and people.—— Award Presentation Ceremony——At the matchmaking conference, High Fashion (China) Business Park has officially been awarded as the extended platform of Shanghai CIIE and Hongqiao Pinhui Zhejiang Center (Hangzhou), becoming a strategic partner of Shanghai Hongqiao International Import Commodities Exhibition Co., Ltd.Gu Yaojun, Secretary of the Party Leadership Group of the Commission of Commerce of Changning District, Shanghai (left)Well Lam, Director of High Fashion (China) Co., Ltd. (middle)Zhang Lei, Director of the Promotion Office of Orient International (Holdings), CIIE (right)Well Lam, Director of High Fashion (China), shared that the CIIE is an excellent platform. With the prevailing trade protectionism around the globe, China's hosting of the CIIE not only shows the broad-mindedness as a great power, but also demonstrates China’s important position in the global market. As a Hong Kong-funded enterprise, High Fashion is very confident in the future development of the country. This time, successfully being an extended platform of the CIIE, High Fashion will definitely promote the connection of upstream and downstream, domestic and foreign industrial resources, and accelerate the synergistic development between different regions. We also welcome all domestic and foreign companies to visit High Fashion.—— CIIE Extended Platform & High Fashion Platform——This matchmaking conference focused on the two themes of "CIIE" and "Yangtze River Delta Integration", and assumed the role of "key channel, key hub, key platform, and key force" of the CIIE. As a key point of contact, the Hongqiao Import Commodity Exhibition and Trading Center ("Hongqiao Pinhui") also serves as the main platform to undertake the spillover effects of the CIIE.In the post-CIIE era, Hongqiao Pinhui will continue to advance the establishment of a favourable environment for open cooperation and mutual benefits, and provide market and investment opportunities for more countries and enterprises to achieve common development.As an international enterprise covering the entire fashion industry chain, High Fashion leveraged the strategic opportunity of the CIIE and Yangtze River Delta Integration and signed the agreement as the extended platform of CIIE. This signifies the corporate's response of "Openness and Cooperation" by President Xi and the CIIE theme of "New Era, Shared Future", and also expresses the determination of High Fashion seeking in-depth cooperation and building an "international fashion industry integration platform".With the “Belt and Road Initiative” as the background, our own industrial chain resources as the foundation, and the global talents in the design field as the connection, High Fashion proactively builds a global fashion industry integration platform. High Fashion's goal is to become a landmark of Zhejiang's fashion industry and to further promote in-depth and win-win cooperation in the fashion industry of various countries, which largely shares the same purpose of the CIIE of establishing a platform of open cooperation."We need to promote development through opening-up and deepen exchanges and cooperation among us. We need to 'join hands' with each other instead of 'letting go' of each other's hands. We need to 'tear down walls', not to 'erect walls'," shared by President Xi.Guided by President Xi's speech on "promoting reform and development through opening-up", High Fashion will give full play to the great role of the business park as an extended platform, actively integrate into the new opening-up structure of the country, bring in more international high-quality fashion resources, and expand internationally to take advantage of overseas markets and resources, expediting the nation's "Go Out" Policy. Let us look forward to it together!

Zhejiang Sci-Tech University Students from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan visited High Fashion, Exchanging Ideas and Seeking Opportunities
High Fashion helps non-local students studying in Hangzhou have a deeper understanding and better integration into the development of Hangzhou. We build a platform for exchanges between Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan talents and the city of Hangzhou. On May 15, 2019, a group of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan students studying in Zhejiang Sci-Tech University visited High Fashion’s modern garment production base, Hangzhou's representative garment enterprise, to gain an in-depth understanding of the status of innovation and development and discuss the employment prospects of foreign students in Hangzhou with Ms. Pan Fengjiao, Director of the Human Resources Sharing Center, and Mr. Xu Mei, Manager of the Sustainable Development Department.The delegation of teachers and students from High Fashion Womenswear Institute also participated in this exchange activity. Both the University and the Institute look forward to more cooperation and exploring opportunities in the future.In the forum, the Human Resources Sharing Center first introduced High Fashion's current development, innovative management model, corporate employment, and talent training strategies, so that students had a preliminary understanding of High Fashion. Then the students proactively spoke out and shared their thoughts in the discussion session which was interactive and engaging. A student majoring in design at the Zhejiang Sci-Tech University said that it is much easier to stay in the mainland for work now than before. The school and society are encouraging them to stay in Hangzhou for employment. He asked when large-scale enterprises like High Fashion with trading and processing business that emphasizes innovation recruit interns, what the ratio of engineering major and business majors would be. If one is interested in marketing, he would like to know if High Fashion would give design students the opportunity to get to know more about the market.Ms. Pan Fengjiao, Director of the Human Resources Sharing Center, answered the students’ questions one by one in detail, and said that talents are paramount to a city's development. Only when Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan students in Hangzhou feel more about the city’s charm and know more about the opportunities of career development, can they find their own value and build the sense of identity. High Fashion always welcomes international students from various majors for internships at the company. Regardless of the major, as long as you are outstanding, High Fashion can provide you with suitable platform and positions. Even if you are interested in developing in fields different from your major, the company will give you the opportunity of continuous learning.After a relaxing and pleasant face-to-face exchange, the first stop the students visited was the R&D Center of High Fashion Garment Branch.▲Students observing High Fashion's 3D custom tailoring software operation closelyThe students were interested in understanding the process of modern garment production on the spot, and showed a keen interest in 3D custom tailoring and other cutting-edge technologies. Many students majoring in fashion design even asked for further in-depth understanding and learning.▲Visiting High Fashion's digital printing workshop▲Visiting the printing, dyeing and finishing workshopIn the digital printing workshop, students watched the operation of digital printing machines. Machines like printers with high speed, wide-width format and high precision are a revolutionary breakthrough in the traditional printing and dyeing industry. After the visit in person, they all exclaimed how innovative and well-developed the silk industry is and admired the development of High Fashion's industrial technology.Although it was raining on that day, the students who travelled in the High Fashion Business Park remained enthusiastic and unaffected. The purpose of this visit is to let schools and enterprises to communicate in order to guide the inflow of talents from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, and to accurately match them to the right roles.
