« Cette idée philanthrope est tout à fait convaincante et aide à renforcer à la fois l’image nationale de la Chine et l’image commerciale des entreprises chinoises, » a commenté l’ambassadeur, M. Wu.

Au cours de sa réunion avec la délégation, M. Wu a souligné le fait que les entreprises chinoises participent activement au développement économique du Kenya, pays dans lequel Moutai est actif pour ce qui est de la responsabilité sociale des entreprises, une chose qui a un sens et une portée sur le long terme.

« En tant qu’importante marque chinoise de liqueurs, Moutai a joué un rôle essentiel pour approfondir l’amitié entre la Chine et les pays étrangers, » a ajouté M. Wu. « De nombreux politiciens en Afrique apprécient Moutai. Nous avons toutefois noté des différences significatives d’un pays à l’autre dans la consommation de liqueur. »

M. Wu a suggéré que Moutai mette au point une stratégie sur la base des conditions matérielles du pays africain dans lequel elle planifie son expansion.

« Avant votre arrivée au Kenya, j’ai vu dans la presse que Moutai a eu beaucoup de succès avec sa campagne de marketing de marque en Tanzanie. »

M. Wu a également fait un exposé sur le développement social et économique du Kenya, et il a formulé plusieurs suggestions concernant la façon de réussir sur le marché. En particulier, d’après la situation du développement économique du pays et les caractéristiques de la consommation de liqueur, M. Wu a expliqué que Moutai pourrait envisager d’établir une affaire allant au-delà de la vente de produits en élaborant une stratégie plus précise pour le marché, ou en participant plus fortement au développement économique du pays et aux investissements.

M. Wang, secrétaire adjoint du Parti a exprimé ses remerciements à M. Wu pour offrir des conseils précieux à Moutai, avant lui-même de faire une présentation sur la croissance et de la stratégie de la Société, ainsi que le contexte du voyage de la délégation en Afrique et ses observations au cours de cette visite.

« Ceci symbolise la seconde fois que Moutai déploie à grande échelle en Afrique une campagne de marketing de marque en réponse à l’initiative de La ceinture et la route (B&R) du gouvernement chinois. »

M. Wang a noté qu’en tirant profit de sa forte dynamique, Moutai a lancé pour la deuxième fois en Afrique cette campagne en ligne avec le plan d’expansion stratégique de la Société : cette démarche la prépare à une plus vaste expansion sur le marché africain pour renforcer l’influence mondiale de sa marque, posant ainsi de solides fondations pour le développement durable de l’entreprise à long terme.

M. Wang a fait valoir qu’avec son riche portefeuille, Moutai prépare divers plans d’approvisionnement et de commercialisation pour divers marchés dans le monde entier.

Moutai Group est parvenu à un consensus avec les organes du gouvernement local et des partenaires d’entreprises sur la mise en œuvre du plan de la Société consistant à donner aux administrations locales, en vue du secours médical et du traitement de la faune sauvage, cinq dollars pour chaque bouteille vendue dans le pays de la série de liqueurs nouvellement lancée. Les dons proviendront des ventes au détail par les partenaires locaux de commercialisation de Moutai.

Un accord entre Moutai et ses associés au Kenya a été signé à Nairobi dans l’après-midi de la même journée. Yang Jianjun, membre du comité du parti du Moutai Group et directeur général adjoint a signé au nom de Moutai.

“The philanthropic idea is very compelling and helps to enhance both the national image of China and the corporate image of Chinese firms,” said the ambassador, Mr. Wu.

During his meeting with the delegation, Mr. Wu underlined the fact that Chinese firms have been actively participating in the economic development of Kenya, a country in which Moutai is active in terms of corporate social responsibility, something that is long-term and meaningful.

“As a major Chinese liquor brand, Moutai has played an important role in deepening the friendship between China and foreign countries,” added Mr. Wu. “In Africa, many politicians love Moutai however, we have noted that there are major differences in liquor consumption from one country to another.”

Mr. Wu suggested that Moutai develop a strategy based on the concrete conditions in the African country it plans to expand into.

“Before you arrived in Kenya, I had seen the news that Moutai had held a successful brand marketing campaign in Tanzania.”

Mr. Wu also gave a presentation on the economic and social development of Kenya and proposed several suggestions on how to succeed in the market. In particular, based on the status of the country’s economic development and liquor consumption characteristics, Moutai could consider establishing a business there that goes beyond product sales by developing a more precise strategy for the market or deeply participating in the country’s economic development and investment, Mr. Wu explained.

The deputy party secretary, Mr. Wang, expressed his thanks to Mr. Wu for offering valuable advice to Moutai before giving a presentation on the company’s growth and strategy as well as the background behind their trip to Africa and their reflections on the trip.

“This marks the second time that Moutai has held a large-scale brand marketing campaign in Africa in response to the Chinese government’s Belt and Road (B&R) initiative.”

Mr. Wang noted that by leveraging its strong momentum, Moutai launched the campaign in Africa for the second time in line with the company’s strategic expansion plan, in a move to prepare for its further expansion in the African market and to enhance its global brand influence, laying a sound foundation for the firm’s long-term and sustainable development.

Mr. Wang underscored that with a rich portfolio, Moutai develops different supply and marketing plans for various markets worldwide.

Moutai Group has reached a consensus with local government bodies and corporate partners on the implementation of the company’s plan to donate five dollars to the local government for medical rescue and treatment of wildlife for each bottle of the newly launched series of Moutai liquors sold in the country. The donations will come from retail sales of Moutai’ s local sales partners.

Western Cape Education hosts anti-bullying event at Fairmount Secondary school

Spreading the message against bullying

This morning, the WCED Metro South District held an anti-bullying event at Fairmount Secondary school. The event was supported by Minister Debbie Schafer and radio DJ Carl Wastie.

The event highlighted the effects of bullying on learners, as well as to draw attention to the fact that learners who film, post or distribute videos are also participating in the bullying.

This forms part of a broader campaign by the WCED called Raise your Voice, Not your phone, which has gone viral through various social media platforms. Over the past weekend, the digital campaign was awarded a merit at the One Show awards in New York. The One Show is one of the most prestigious international awards competitions in advertising, design, interactive and branded entertainment. It also recently won a silver and a bronze award at the IAB Bookmark Awards.

Please see video presented below which outlines what the campaign entails and how it is being expanded into the school curriculum: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxQtJUOrM_c#action=share

We are all aware that bullying is happening in many schools, both in Western Cape, the country, as well as internationally, in some shape or form.

It can be verbal, physical or via a third party through social media.

Any learner or parent of a learner who has gone through such abuse knows the pain and trauma it can bring. It can lead to depression, anxiety, self-harming and in some cases, even suicide.

The use of social media has heightened these risks. Learners are now using various social media platforms to either tease, embarrass, intimidate or torment other learners.

The sad reality is that it involves thousands of learners – who are either posting, sharing, or re-tweeting videos, photos or messages that damage the reputation or confidence of others.

With many of the incidents filmed and shared on Social Media for their friends to see, learners don’t realise you don’t need to beat somebody up to be a bully. We needed a way to help learners realise it for themselves.

The campaign first involves the filming of a fake bullying incident in a school yard. It ends with the simple message: Raise your voice, not your phone.

The viewer is then taken to 5 constructed questions that leads the reader to the realisation that learners are also participating in bullying by filming the incident, rather than intervening in order to bring an end to the abuse.

See here – http://www.wcg-antibullying.co.za/

A second video was then created, which involved the participation of random learners from schools across the metro, who were asked questions in an interview. A psychologist was asked to show each learner the first video and a number of questions were posed thereafter. They were not briefed on the content. Their reactions are all real.

Just see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBOr46mWHQs

The video exposes how learners don’t necessarily understand the implications of filming or distributing content across social media, and how their actions are just as bad as the bully concerned.

It is a powerful message that not only reveals the pain one can cause, but also the pain that many have suffered.

The campaign leads learners to various pages of support or advice on how to intervene when bullying occurs.

The campaign also provides tips on what one can do to help victims that are being bullied, as well as the types of support that are available for learners experiencing such abuse.

Unfortunately, many cases of bullying go unreported and the WCED is therefore not able to intervene. It is therefore so important to run advocacy and awareness campaigns such as this regarding the dangers of bullying, and how to combat it.

We are also delighted that the campaign has also been recognised by the IAB Bookmark Awards � winning a silver and a bronze award at the beginning of the year. at the IAB Bookmark Award. Paxton Fielies have also partnered with us on this campaign. They certainly helped raise the profile of the campaign and drew much needed attention to the dangers and risks associated with bullying in our schools.
