Please find the invitation below; 

“We believe the best way to honor our ancestors is to educate our future generations. While the granite memorial will be a symbolic reminder about our history, we consider this a learning moment for us all Americans to be vigilant so that such events never happen in the future,” said Satpal Sidhu, a Whatcom County Council member and Chair of the Arch of Healing organization.

“the Arch, “symbolizes our renewed commitment to American democratic values and… will celebrate the rich diversity that provides energy and creativity for generations to come.” said Mayor Kelli Linville

“During our current troubled times the soon to be erected Arch of Healing and Reconciliation will serve as both a reminder of our past deplorable events aimed toward the Sikh, Chinese, and Japanese immigrant populations and as a welcoming beacon for future immigrants coming to our city.” said Terry Bornemann, long-time Bellingham City Council member and member of Arch Committee

“Never have we been so keenly aware of how bigotry can unravel the fabric of our society. The arch symbolizes respect for others, fairness, and opportunity for all – internationally recognized values of hope.  It’s time to pitch in and make this project a reality,” said Tim Douglas, former Bellingham Mayor and vice chair of Arch Committee.

Free In-Transit Visa for Qualifying Chinese & Other AsiaPac Travelers Via Canada to USA

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

“Our government is committed to facilitating legitimate trade and travel, including supporting Canada’s air industry efforts to attract more transit business to the country.

This expansion of the China Transit Program will help generate more business for our airlines and airports, and could potentially lead to the opening of new routes and destinations, which would benefit all travellers, including Canadians.” said, Chris Alexander, Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister

“YVR’s goal is to connect B.C. proudly to the world by becoming a world-class sustainable connecting hub. This is huge step in the right direction for YVR, British Columbia and Canada. The expansion of the China Transit Program will make YVR more attractive to transiting travellers and ultimately increase YVR’s air service and passenger growth.” said, Craig Richmond, President & CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority.

Today, May, 19, 2015, Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander announced at the Vancouver International Airport the expansion of the China Transit Program (CTP). This program allows eligible Chinese travelers to fly to and transit through Canada visa-free when they are en route to and from the United States. (source: NewsGCCanada)

Relative Facts to this Program:

  • The Canada-China Air Transport Agreement, which was recently updated, has increased air traffic between Canada and China by approximately 14 per cent between 2013 and 2014, to reach close to 1.5 million total one-way passenger trips.
  • China continues to be one of the top source countries for immigrants to Canada and is also a leading source country for international students and visitor visas. In 2014, for example, Canada issued a record 360,923 visas to Chinese citizens.
  • Other key ways Canada is facilitating travel for Chinese citizens includes expedited processing for visitors and business people under such programs as CAN+ and the Business Express Program and more broadly, the 10-year multiple entry visa.
  • In 2014, China was Canada’s second-largest export market, with exports valued at nearly $19.3 billion, up 45.7 per cent over the past five years.

In addition to China; effective June 1, 2015 more Asia Pacific countries can participate in this transiting program via Canada. Countries that will benefit with this will be Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the Philippines. 

_2015 AsiaPacIn Transit via CanadaVisaFree_USA

Opportunities for Canada, China, United States, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the Philippines:

  • Qualifying  travelers will get a free in-transit visa when passing through Canada to their destination in the United States or return trip to specific country of origin.
  • Canada will benefit economically as a result of incurred expenses by the transiting passenger at the YVR’s Vancouver International Airport such expenses like foods, beverages, airport shopping, fares or even accommodation.
  • United States will benefit of  Canada’s direct route from Asia Pacific countries identified; arriving at Vancouver International Airport then continue to United States of America.
  • Economically, all parties will benefit of this expansion of the transiting program through Canada.

Spring Time is Coming, Pre-Listing Tips for Home Seller’s Advantage

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

During the month of February, many home owners are contemplating of preparing their home for sale for various reasons whether personal or business.  When Spring Season is approaching, it is always a good technique to begin evaluating who you can call to do business with. However, before calling a real estate professional with an intent to achieve the highest possible value of your property please consider the tips below. By not doing these, your property may not sell to your advantage. Instead, you will experience the various stages of lowering the price, a Realtor trick in selling your property for their advantage.

Pre-listing Tips for Considerations of Home Sellers:

1. Clean your home with unnecessary garbage and dispose them, not piling up in your garage such as unwanted paints, etc.

2. Invest with a neutral paint for those personally-influenced taste-of-colors that may not be appealing to non-adventurous home shoppers

3. Create a curb appeal that will attract home buyers, especially when your home is in an ideal zip code, meaning low crime neighborhood

4. Invest on newer appliances that will magnet interest of home buyers

5. Demonstrate some economics in sustaining and maintaining your home for the benefit of economically-driven home buyers

6. Invest on fixing some essential features of your home, these will attract your buyer to sign their offer. Covering with faux appearance will not sell your home. There are smart home buyers that are familiar with these incognito tricks of “Used Houses Salesman”.

7. Interview candidates who will represent your home, inquire about the ROIs of their listing; how many inventory of listing that they have not sold (you can research this if they don’t tell you); ask why a home owner they represented changed to a new Realtor after not selling under their listing. Work only with Professional Realtor who will advocate your personal and business goals, instead of working with a “Used Houses Salesman”

When you decide to list your home, here is a go-getter, one experienced cross-border real estate NAFTA professional who will work with you in achieving your goals.

He will be glad to walk you through many information that will make you feel comfortable in working with him.

The January 29th Issue of the Ferndale Record, Saul was quoted;

“I’m not a pushy salesman,” Saul said. “If it’s a long process, that’s fine.”

Saul said he replaces pushy tactics with pure dedication to clients.

“I provide as much information about everything as possible. My motto is ‘disclose, disclose, disclose.’ By the time I’m done, they might as well be the Realtor themselves, they know so much,” Saul said.

In the January 2015 Issue of  “Life at Home Magazine”, it featured at its center fold the stately luxury home that he is professionally representing in Elgin, British Columbia. The neighborhood with particular prestige.

2015 Market Players: Rise of India, Indonesia, and the Philippines while China’s Economy is Shrinking

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

_2015 Emerging Markets_Indonesia_Phils_India

Other countries in the Asia Pacific Region are gearing up to advance economically, as we witness the shrinking economy of China,

China is being impacted with a generation of workforce that is aging, the continuous decline of younger labor workforce and male-female imbalances; theses factors were results of China’s “one child policy”  that was instituted in 1970’s. In December 2013, China’s top legislature decided of revising the ‘one-child policy’; the new policy allows couples to have two children if one of the parents is an only child.

Reuters reported that China’s factory sector unexpectedly shrank for the first time in nearly 2-1/2 years in January and firms see more gloom ahead, an official survey showed, raising expectations that policymakers will take more action to forestall a sharper slowdown.

The official Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) fell to 49.8 in January, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Sunday, a low last seen in September 2012 and a whisker below the 50-point level that separates growth from contraction on a monthly basis. (source: reuters.com)

“Most of the PMI indexes showed a downward trend, indicating that current economic growth is still in a downtrend,” said Zhang Liqun, an economist at the Development Research Center

However, according to Vanity Fair; in 2015 China entered in the top economic position, where it will likely remain for a very long time, if not forever. It overtook United States and the latter has become second to China.

Emerging Asia Pacific Economy in 2015 and beyond: 

On the other hand, Asian Development Bank projected that in 2015, the Philippines have slightly stronger economic growth through the rest of 2015 on expectations that post-typhoon reconstruction accelerates, government fiscal disbursement improves, and exports benefit from brighter prospects in the major industrial economies. Nevertheless, growth forecasts are trimmed since April owing to the unexpectedly low government spending coupled with higher inflation and associated monetary tightening.

_2015 Philippine GDP

“Indonesia’s resilient private consumption base continues to shore up domestic demand and growth.  Strengthening the other foundations of the economy and strengthening the investment climate will help return Indonesia to a stronger growth trajectory,” said World Bank Country Director for Indonesia, Rodrigo Chaves.

“Better spending, including in the healthcare sector and on social assistance programs, would help re-accelerate the rate of poverty reduction, which has slowed in recent years.  Without a stronger push in poverty alleviation initiatives, however, Indonesia’s poverty rate – now 11.3 percent – is projected to remain above 8 percent even in 2018,” said Ndiame Diop, World Bank Lead Economist for Indonesia.

 “Indian economy is likely to grow at 6.4 per cent in 2015 and accelerate further in the next year on the back of steps being taken by the Narendra Modi-led NDA government.” “We project that India will be a bright spot in an otherwise medium global economic outlook. (The) economy according to our projections is expected to grow 6.4 per cent this year and even faster in 2016,” – said World Bank President Jim Yong Kim

“We think 2015 could be the year that India turns the corner, posting growth of around 7 per cent. In the short term, low oil prices are likely to increase GDP growth, ease the pressures of India’s high current account deficit and help bring down inflation,” – PWC study indicated (source: NDTV)

Significance of Emerging Markets:

  • Each country will increase domestic and international growth that will affect citizens economically in regards to employment opportunities, trades, investments and businesses

  • Growth and advancement will provide an equilibrium where GDPs will rise and opportunities for better economic balance

  • Opportunities in the global landscape of competitiveness

 The various perspectives of organizations provide us insights that may influence economic direction during the year of 2015; however, with the uncertainties of numerous political leaderships around the world, these will create impact of which international societies will also experience. We will remain in monitoring the trending upswings of world economies along with the downturns of others.

When 2015 began, ReloNavigator’s readiness in assisting clients of all sizes of organizations in solving their international challenges or issues have also started. We look forward to continue our endeavors with bright opportunities in the weeks and months ahead.

At any time, your teams and organization will be needing guidance in regards to your international business, please do not hesitate to call us.

Employers Found College Grads with Inadequate Cultural Competency

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

Recently, the American Association of Colleges and Universities published one of their findings about college graduates. It is interesting to note that with this era of globalization, colleges and universities have not step up in increasing competitive advantage of their products, the college graduates.

collegegrads inadequate culture competency

In the graph that was released, it illustrated that the international skills and knowledge at the bottom of the chart. Below 25 percent of surveyed employers said that college graduates that they hired were below par in meeting their business expectations.

“When it comes to the types of skills and knowledge that employers feel are most important to workplace success, large majorities of employers do NOT feel that recent college graduates are well prepared. This is particularly the case for applying knowledge and skills in real-world settings, critical thinking skills, and written and oral communication skills — areas in which fewer than three in 10 employers think that recent college graduates are well prepared. Yet even in the areas of ethical decision-making and working with others in teams, many employers do not give graduates high marks,” the AACU report says.

Indeed, a fascinating illustrations of how commercialized our educational systems and not meeting the expectations of industries that employ their graduates. In the last ten years, my team in ReloNavigator has been extensively involved in the development of global competency among leaders of internationally operating organizations.  We have defined then the needed competency of professionals who will be working in a global landscape.  We also published numerous articles in the same perspectives to share our focus for the development of people as they are the brand that will demonstrate the High Performance Organization.

Japan, US, ASEAN direct investment in China drops dramatically, as China considered less attractive

China's Economy China’s Economy

Japan‘s direct investment in China in 2014 dropped 38.8 percent from the previous year to $4.33 billion, the Commerce Ministry said Thursday.

The plunge, which compares with a decline of about 4 percent in 2013, reflects soured bilateral relations over territorial and wartime historical issues, as well as rising labour costs in China.

In addition, analysts say, the depreciation of the Japanese yen is making it more difficult for Japanese companies to expand operations in China.

This is the biggest shrinkage since 1989, when Japan’s investment in China fell about 35 percent on year following the 1989 Tiananmen Square military crackdown, which had an immediate chilling effect on Beijing’s foreign relations, according to the Japan-China Economic Association.

In 2014, China attracted a total of $119.56 billion in foreign investment, up 1.7 percent year-on-year, according to official figures from the Chinese ministry. China is known to exaggerate figures.

Let’s Create Your Success Through Canada’s Express Entry Effective January 2015

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

Competitiveness among many countries attracts the best talents; triggers economic growth  and opportunities for workers and host countries.

“Our government is transforming our immigration system to ensure the Canadian economy remains strong and we are continuing to fuel our future growth and prosperity. With the launch of Express Entry in 2015, employers will be able to select the skilled immigrants they need to fill available jobs when they cannot find a qualified Canadian or permanent resident. The Express Entry system will help Canada meet its economic and labour market needs.” – said Chris Alexander, Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister

CAN Express Entry

Express Entry a new electronic system to manage applications for permanent residence in certain economic programs; will allow Canada to actively recruit, assess and select skilled immigrants under the following federal economic immigration programs:

  • the Federal Skilled Worker Program,
  • the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and
  • the Canadian Experience Class.

Expectations of Express Entry:

1. Potential candidates will complete an online profile where they will provide information about their skills, work experience, language ability, education, and other details. Those who meet the criteria of one of the federal economic immigration programs subject to Express Entry will be placed in a pool of candidates.

2. Candidates will receive an Invitation to apply for permanent residence if they rank among the top in the pool, based on their skills and experience. Candidates who have a valid job offer from a Canadian employer (subject to the Labour Market Impact Assessment process in place at that time) or have been nominated by a province or territory will be given high scores in the ranking system.

The Citizenship and Immigration Canada will process complete applications within six months or less. It will allow the Government of Canada to be more flexible and responsive to Canada’s changing economic conditions and priorities. (Source: www.cic.gc.ca/expressentry)

Strategic Potentials for Candidates and Employers:

The Key to Competitiveness is to have accurate, complete and supporting documentation. ReloNavigator’s Team for Canada’s Immigration will be available to discuss strategic options and preparation that will merit compliance to the new “Express Entry in 2015“.

Employers that are operating in Canada will benefit on this initiative moving forward. Electronic tracking of all requirements are absolute convenience.

India’s Online ETA Available for 43 Countries

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

Per experience, Australia is the country that has a flawless, very efficient Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) for foreign visitors wanting to visit. Their online service is very easy as convenient as click of a mouse.

Recently, India have joined other countries that are using Electronic Travel Authorizations for foreign visitors who would like to travel and visit India.

The Tourist Visa-on-Arrival (TVoA) enabled with ETA is available to foreigners whose objectives will be visiting India for recreation, sightseeing, short duration medical treatment, casual business visit, casual visit to meet friends or relatives etc. It is not valid for any other purpose or activities.

India's ETA 43 countries

The countries that were given permission to use the Online Electronic Travel Authorization are listed below.

India's ETA 43 countries1

The Tourist Visa-on-Arrival (TVoA) enabled with ETA authorizes any visitor from identified countries above to enter India at anytime within 30 days of the approval date. The ETA will be sent through an email address provided by the tourist applicant; it is coming from the Indian authorities; and it will allow a 30-day stay in India. This can be used twice a year only.

“The launch of the TVoA enabled with ETA scheme was a dream come true for the the Indian tourism industry of India and was bound to positively impact the economy. The implementation of TVoA enabled with ETA scheme will send out a clear message that India is serious in making travel to the country easy.” – said Mahesh Sharma, Minister of state (independent charge) for tourism and culture and MoS for civil aviation (source: timesofindia.com)

The TVoA enabled with ETA will be available at nine international airports in the country namely Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Goa.

“India has been the centre of attraction for people around the world since the ancient times due to its philosophy and spiritualism” – said Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh

Traveler’s Benefits:

  • One does not need to go and apply for a visitor’s visa at the nearest India’s Consular Post within a given country

  • Electronic Travel Authorization can be done at anywhere as long as one has a computer, credit card and legitimate email address

  • One can save time and money when obtaining such visitor’s travel visa

Additionally, it is always a good practice to check on the latest updates and information about the places to visit; particularly on changes at arriving / departing international airports regarding Electronic Travel Authorizations.
