NaXum Promotes from Within for Technical Production Manager Seats

 NaXum continues to live out its Promote From Within Core Value with another internal “jump” promotion recently. This time, it has selected Rhena May Salinas and Crismarie Lopez as its new Technical Production Managers (TPM) of Client Support and Design, respectively.

Originally an accountancy graduate, Salinas found a home for her gifts in serving others as a Customer Support Representative. She worked in the BPO Industry for 8 years before joining NaXum as a Client Champion in 2020.

It has always been Salinas’ passion to deliver excellence and exceed what’s expected from her. According to her team bio on the company website, she is a strong advocate of development and growth. With this, she constantly seeks new learnings and welcomes new challenges —an attribute she applied in her June 2022 TPM Promotion.

Lopez, on the other hand, is an IT Graduate who has been a long-time employee of the software provider. She entered the company as a Client Champ too and went on to “jump” as a UI Designer and then UX Designer.

Lopez describes herself on NaXum’s website as a driven person, always leaning in and stepping out of her comfort zone. The TPM seat is now her fourth role since boarding the company.

In her new role, Lopez serves as assistant to the Vice President of Design and owns managing the assembly line of NaXum’s Design team.

Salinas shares the same accountability as Lopez, only she is assigned to serve the Client Support Team.

Salinas and Lopez are just two of the many products of NaXum’s Promote From Within core value. In its culture, NaXum allows team members to journey around the different areas of its operations from different seats. This is to protect its employees from stagnation and help them find their true tech gifts.

Hong Kong – SFH promotes new pathway to medical students and practitioners in Australia on admitting qualified non-locally trained doctors to practise in Hong Kong (with photos)

SFH promotes new pathway to medical students and practitioners in Australia on admitting qualified non-locally trained doctors to practise in Hong Kong (with photos)


     The Secretary for Food and Health, Professor Sophia Chan, attended a webinar jointly organised by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, Sydney and the Australasian Medical Services Coalition today (May 6) to promote the new pathway for qualified doctors trained outside Hong Kong to obtain full registration and practise in Hong Kong.  Around 200 participants, including medical students and practitioners in Australia, joined the webinar.

     During the webinar, Professor Chan briefed the attendees on the details of the new pathway under the amended Medical Registration Ordinance, the promulgation of the first batch of recognised medical qualifications in late April and other follow-up actions taken by the Government to facilitate the admission of non-locally trained doctors to practise in Hong Kong.  Representatives from the Department of Health (DH) and the Hospital Authority (HA) also introduced the career opportunities in their respective organisations to the attendees.


     Professor Chan said, “Further to the enactment of the Medical Registration (Amendment) Ordinance 2021, non-locally trained doctors who possess recognised medical qualifications, subject to their fulfilment of certain criteria, may apply for special registration to practise in the public healthcare institutions (i.e. the DH, the HA, the University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong) in Hong Kong. After serving for a certain period, obtaining recognised specialist qualifications and passing the assessment, they will be granted full registration to practise in Hong Kong. For non-locally trained medical graduates who possess the recognised medical qualifications but have yet to undergo internship outside Hong Kong, subject to their fulfilment of relevant criteria, they may take the Licensing Examination of the Medical Council of Hong Kong in order to apply for special registration to practise in the public healthcare institutions in Hong Kong.  They may also obtain full registration after meeting the requirements applicable to all special registration doctors.”


     “Established in November 2021, the Special Registration Committee (SRC) is to determine the list of recognised medical qualifications after reviewing programmes offered by non-local medical schools with quality comparable to those provided by the two medical schools in Hong Kong.  The first batch of the list, consisting of two medical qualifications in Australia, was gazetted on April 29.  The SRC is pressing ahead with the assessment of other non-local medical programmes and we expect that the second batch of the list will be promulgated within June 2022.”


     Medical students and practitioners who attended the webinar welcomed the introduction of the new pathway which allows qualified non-locally trained doctors to obtain full registration and practise in Hong Kong.  They opined that it will help attract overseas Hong Kong doctors to return to Hong Kong, and were eager to know more about the job opportunities in Hong Kong.  Lastly, Professor Chan encouraged all medical students and practitioners in Australia to come to Hong Kong and serve citizens in the public healthcare institutions.

Canada – Minister Ng promotes benefits of Global Trade and Gender Arrangement at OECD

Reinforcing international trade policies that promote growth and prosperity for all businesses, communities, and economies will be key to ensuring an inclusive and sustainable economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

June 9, 2021 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada

Reinforcing international trade policies that promote growth and prosperity for all businesses, communities, and economies will be key to ensuring an inclusive and sustainable economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today, the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade, participated in a public panel discussion hosted by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to discuss the benefits of the Global Trade and Gender Arrangement (GTAGA) between Canada, Chile, and New Zealand.

Signed on August 4, 2020, and open to other countries seeking to join, the GTAGA is increasing women’s participation in trade and contributing to broadening efforts to improve women’s economic empowerment. The arrangement highlights Canada’s long-standing commitment to gender equality and recognizes the importance of mutually supportive trade and gender policies.

During the discussion with her GTAGA counterparts from Chile and New Zealand, Minister Ng raised the importance of building knowledge and understanding on the issues, barriers and challenges faced by women in trade. She highlighted how the arrangement, with its wide range of co-operation activities, allows for innovative and responsive tools to create and advance opportunities for women exporters.

As chair of the Ottawa Group on WTO reform, she highlighted the GTAGA’s potential to bring countries together at the WTO to put more inclusive trade policies into practice and ensure everyone benefits from international trade and investment. 

“We hope that the leadership shown by Canada, Chile, and New Zealand in ensuring that our trade policies and practices support opportunities for women in trade will be an example to the world. The Global Trade and Gender Arrangement is an important step forward. We want all WTO member countries to join in this arrangement so that women around the world can access and benefit from the global marketplace.”

– Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade

The OECD is an international organization whose goal is to shape policies that foster prosperity, equality, opportunity, and well-being for all.

Canada, Chile, and New Zealand are advancing inclusive trade initiatives through the Inclusive Trade Action Group (ITAG), which was established on the margins of the 2018 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Leaders’ Summit.

On August 4, 2020, ITAG members developed the stand-alone Global Trade and Gender Arrangement, which commits each participant to advancing an inclusive approach to trade and addressing the barriers that women and all genders face when participating in trade.

Studies show that by advancing gender equality and women’s participation in the economy, Canada could add up to $150 billion to its GDP by 2026.

Minister Ng leads Canada’s Women Entrepreneurship Strategy, a $5 billion investment that provides access to financing, networks, and expertise to help more women start businesses, scale up, and access new markets. In place since 2018, the strategy has been providing women entrepreneurs and business owners with support that will ensure a better and more inclusive economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
