“Hong Kong: Through the Looking Glass” miniature exhibition opens in Singapore (with photos)

******************************************************************************************


     “Hong Kong: Through the Looking Glass”, a 14-day miniature exhibition organised by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (HKETO) in Singapore, opened in Singapore today (April 4).

 

     The exhibition is part of the HKETO in Singapore’s celebratory events for the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region under the theme of “A New Era – Stability • Prosperity • Opportunity”. The exhibition is co-organised with the Hong Kong Tourism Board and supported by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council.

 

     “This exhibition features 40 miniature models based on diversified facets of Hong Kong life, from food culture and traditional festivals to architecture and intangible cultural heritage, as if a ‘miniature Hong Kong’ were brought right before you,” the Director of the HKETO in Singapore, Mr Wong Chun To, said at the opening ceremony.

 

     “Capturing Hong Kong’s essence of blending the East and West, and the old and new, this exhibition not only demonstrates the creativity and enthusiasm of Hong Kong artists, but also promotes among Singaporeans a better understanding of Hong Kong, reinforcing our city’s status as an attractive destination,” he added.



     The exhibition brings Hong Kong’s past and present to life as it shuttles visitors through an immersive journey to understand more about this vibrant city and its rich intangible cultural heritage. Iconic heritage buildings such as the Tai O Heritage Hotel, the Blue House Cluster and the State Theatre, as well as vivid scenes of festivities such as the Cheung Chau Bun Scrambling Competition and Tai Hang fire dragon dance are also recast in the exhibition.



     To enhance public engagement, free guided workshops on miniature craft will be organised on weekends. Participants will have the chance to enjoy “bites” of miniature food in “Hong Kong café style” after each workshop. A youth competition is also organised to encourage young people in Singapore to take photos and make sketches at the miniature exhibition, or make artistic renditions based on the photos or sketches, to tell a Hong Kong-themed story in a four-frame collage. 



     The exhibition runs at Suntec City in Singapore from 10am to 9pm today until April 17. Admission is free.

In order to respond swiftly to the changing market environments, the needs and business challenges of our customers in such circumstances, the Hitachi High-Tech Group is working on enhancing and integrating our core technologies, optimizing our manufacturing frameworks, and accelerating prototype development through Group-integrated business management.

This restructuring is one measure of these key initiatives we are working on, and by utilizing the core competencies (analysis and inspection technologies, production facility engineering capabilities, manufacturing capabilities) of HFS, one of the major group companies, the Hitachi High-Tech Group aims to reinforce our core Measurement and Analysis technologies, further increase the profitability of our fundamental businesses and strengthen the creation of new businesses that will be a key pillar of our future.

Business Restructuring Overview Summary:

1. Railroad Inspection, HD/FPD, Laboratory Solutions
We aim to integrate the laser- and magnetic-analysis technologies of HFS with the measurement and control technologies of HSL, and create new solutions that will be one of the core pillar of our future business.

DRAPER, UtahOct. 28, 2021PRLogJoAnn Featherstone– There’s lots of interest in the real estate market right now and very little inventory to choose from.  Malking it the worse, you often have to submit your personal contact information to get access to details, then that information is sometimes sold ot various lenders, Realtors or other service providers, clogging up your phone with unwanted calls a solicitations.
