This year is the first time any Malaysian hospital has been ranked. "We're immensely honoured that Sunway Medical Centre, though a relatively young hospital, is recognised among the world's best hospitals, in rankings that have seen the likes of Mayo Clinic (USA), Singapore General Hospital (Singapore), Royal Prince Alfred Hospital (Australia), and The University of Tokyo Hospital (Japan)," said Dato' Lau Beng Long, President of Sunway Healthcare Group. Established in 1999, Sunway Medical Centre is the largest private quaternary hospital in Malaysia with 724 licensed beds and more than 40 specialties. It has also been accredited by The Australian Council on Healthcare Standards. "This is a fitting way for us to celebrate our 25th anniversary this year, as we aim to further elevate our standards of care through patient-centred innovative treatments, digitalisation and providing comprehensive clinical services," said Dato' Lau. The announcement comes on the back of SMC's recent ranking as the top hospital for paediatrics in Malaysia and 28th in Asia Pacific, in Newsweek's Best Specialized Hospitals Asia Pacific 2023. SMC is also ranked within the top 75 hospitals in Neurology, Cardiology and Oncology in that same survey. This is the sixth year Newsweek partnered with Statista, Inc., a prominent global market research and consumer data firm, to assess and rank the best hospitals worldwide.

eHi Car Services Achieves Stellar Growth in Chinese New Year Bookings, with Rental Days Surging by Over 75%

SHANGHAI, Feb. 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- eHi Mobility Research Institute, the research arm of eHi Car Services, a prominent national chain of directly operated car rentals, announced its findings examining the firm's performance and user data during the 2024 Chinese New Year holiday (Feb 10 – 17). The report records a series of significant breakthroughs over the eight-day holiday period: Rental days during the period saw a year-over-year (YoY) increase of over 75%, and a jump of more than 98% compared to 2019; the highest single-day rental rate reached 97%. Daily active users (DAUs) on the eHi Car Services app experienced a 60% rise YoY, climbing 130% compared to 2019, while page views witnessed a 110% increase, soaring 240% compared to 2019. Vehicle rentals in several provinces surged by more than 100% YoY. The rental location in Wuchuan, Guangdong province led the increase, skyrocketing over 2,000%. Forecasts from the country's Ministry of Transport indicate that national cross-regional travel in 2024 Chinese New Year expected to reach 9 billion trips. Remarkably, 80% of these journeys will be made by car, signaling a historic peak in personal travel. This transition to car rental as a predominant travel mode is vividly illustrated by eHi Car Services' spike in business during the holiday. The eHi report documents a notable increase in car rentals across the country, with year-over-year growth exceeding 100% in several provinces and autonomous regions, including Jilin, Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Qinghai, Tibet and Guangxi. Particularly striking are the jumps in rental activity since 2019 in Xinjiang, Hunan, Fujian, Guangxi, Jilin, Henan, Gansu, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, and Yunnan, where car rentals have more than doubled. This analysis underscores the dual motivations for holiday car rentals: the necessity of visiting family and the allure of tourism. Renting a car during the holiday offers a preferred solution for many, facilitating their easy travel with ample luggage space and avoiding the congestion of public transport hubs. Besides that, the trend of southern residents traveling north to experience snowy landscapes, alongside the enduring appeal of seeking warmer climates in the south, is well documented in the report. These findings are reflected in the data associated with a few specific cities - rentals in Wuchuan of Guangdong, increased by more than 2,000%, and the surge in Jinjiang of Fujian reached more than 1,000%, while Wuhai of Inner Mongolia, and Laibin of Guangxi witnessed upswings exceeding 300%. The report indicates that during this year's holiday, the demand for car rentals in more than 500 Chinese cities nationwide was robust, with privacy, safety, and flexibility being the primary considerations for making the choice. These were the key drivers for the structural change in travel choices during the holiday. Industry watchers also pointed out that renting a car offers high flexibility, enabling travelers to tailor their travel plans on personal schedules and preferences, free from the constraints of predetermined timetables and routes. " By the end of 2023, China has registered 24.56 million new vehicles, with 486 million car drivers and 336 million car parc in total, becoming the country with the largest number of car parc in the world. According to the surge in self-drive travel during the Chinese New Year holiday,the evolution in travel behavior not only mirrors the rapid advancement of China's economic and social fabric, but also energize the transportation sector. With the growing consumer appetite for premium, customized travel experiences, the car rental market is poised for continued expansion," industry analysts predict.

Kotex Global Study Finds Nearly 60% of Women Feel Progress is Lacking and Launches #ProgressFeelsLike Movement to Ignite Action on International Women's Day

Kotex, champion of women's progress for 100+ years, launches provocative next phase of its "She Can Initiative" to generate awareness around study and drive systemic change DALLAS, Feb. 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimberly-Clark's (NYSE:KMB) Kotex, creator of the period care category, is marking International Women's Day (March 8) by releasing eye-opening data from a study around how women worldwide feel about progress. Kotex uncovered that nearly 60% of women believe that the speed of women's progress is either stagnant or moving slowly. Half of the women polled indicated that the world is a more uncomfortable place for them than ever before. Furthermore, the study showed that these sentiments are relatively stronger among the younger generation. With this data top of mind, Kotex is launching its #ProgressFeelsLike effort to speak to this serious threat and encourage women around the world to have a voice and share their view of what progress is like in their daily lives and in the world around them. "In a long history of advancement of women's rights and equality, today we are reminded that progress isn't a given," said Alison Lewis, chief growth officer at Kimberly-Clark. "Now is a crucial time for women everywhere to use their voices to inspire change, and we are pleased to offer a platform to share what #ProgressFeelsLike from their viewpoint. On International Women's Day and every day, #ProgressFeelsLike unites us and empowers us in our pursuit of progress across every culture and every country in the world. Because period or not, She Can." To help show the world what #ProgressFeelsLike, Kotex is debuting a provocative film produced by an all-female Kotex team in partnership with Capital A Creative and Rakish, led by renowned director, Jaci Judelson. The powerful #ProgressFeelsLike film speaks to the data unearthed in Kotex's study. It depicts the reality around the globe that women face bias related to inequality, their periods and other restrictions, which continue to challenge or hinder progress. Kotex is encouraging women worldwide to participate in the movement by using #ProgressFeelsLike in social media posts. The period care brand is also organizing on-the-ground activations to ignite conversation and inspire change for women within their communities. Examples include: In Turkey, Kotex is increasing its commitment to women's progress to ensure a more comfortable world where women can express themselves freely and break menstrual taboos. For every tweet using #ProgressFeelsLike in Turkey, the Kotex team will make a matching product donation to non-profit women's organizations. In Brazil, Kotex is launching a digital art festival to visually depict what #ProgressFeelsLike and to celebrate women's achievements, question the stigmas around menstruation, and show that women haven't come this far to stop here. In the US, U by Kotex will donate two period products to Alliance for Period Supplies from the purchase of any U by Kotex product purchased at Walmart during March 2024. U by Kotex will also donate two additional period products to APS for each repost of its social media post for National Women's Day on March 8, 2024, to drive awareness of period poverty, an issue that impacts one in three low-income women in the US. In Vietnam, Kotex is launching a music video that calls for consumers to submit entries that speak to what #ProgressFeelsLike when it comes to chasing their dreams. The top three winners will receive a $5,000 scholarship to make their ideas a reality. As part of the #ProgressFeelsLike movement, Kotex is leading by example and has formed a new partnership with She's the First, a non-profit organization that fights for a world where every girl can choose her own future. As a part of the partnership with She's the First, Kotex is standing behind its pledge to progress and donating funds to help support the organization's mission to make sure girls everywhere are respected, educated and heard. The #ProgressFeelsLike movement and new alliance with She's the First is an extension of Kotex's She Can Initiative and existing work with Plan International and WASH United. The three partnerships align with Kotex's ongoing mission to champion women's progress by fighting period stigmas and the barriers they cause, by promoting access to education in schools and communities and by helping to open doors so women gain equal opportunity.

Over half of Thais share their travels online; domestic travel gains popularity amid rising cost of living

BANGKOK, Feb. 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Thai consumers are increasingly turning to online channels for travel inspiration and to share their experiences, according to Mintel research. Before embarking on a trip, 53% of Thais use social media to explore popular destinations, while after their journey, 54% share their experiences on personal social media accounts. Notably, this trend is more pronounced among young Thai travelers aged 18-24, with 60% engaging in such sharing, compared to 51% of those aged 45 and older. "Demand for travel discounts and deal-related destinations is evident, with 44% of respondents seeking such information online," said Wilasinee Siriboonpipattana, PhD (Kaimook), Consultant, South APAC, Mintel Consulting. "Brands targeting tourists can enhance their visibility by leveraging these platforms and offering captivating tourist photos to capture their attention." Mintel research shows that 44% of Thais went on leisure trips in the past year, with nearly half (20%) taking such trips 2-3 times annually. The top three reasons cited for holidaying include relaxation (70%), spending quality time with loved ones (64%), and breaking away from routine (46%). Older consumers tend to prioritise travel for relaxation and rejuvenation compared to younger generations. For instance, 75% of Thais aged over 45 travel to unwind both mentally and physically, in contrast to 70% of those aged 25-44 and 65% of those aged 18-24. Kaimook notes that as individuals age and contend with increased obligations and stresses, the need for relaxation and peace becomes more pronounced. "Brands can cater to this need by offering products that promote pampering and rejuvenation." Interestingly, older Millennials (aged 35-44) often view holidays as an opportunity to commemorate significant milestones or achievements in their lives (32%). "Understanding the motivations for travel among older Millennials enables brands to tailor their marketing strategies to inspire journeys that celebrate personal milestones. This approach ensures that campaigns and products also resonate with those seeking meaningful travel experiences," added Kaimook. Rising cost of living drives Thais toward domestic tourism Amid rising costs, domestic travel holds greater appeal for three in four Thais (76%) compared to international travel. During travel, 30% of Thai consumers say they try different cuisines, with 49% dining in gourmet establishments such as local Michelin-starred restaurants. This underscores the allure of local culinary experiences in attracting consumers to destinations offering not only scenic beauty but also a diverse array of flavours. According to Mintel research, Thais also express a strong desire for cultural immersion and genuine connections when traveling: 83% agree that meeting locals enhances their understanding of the communities they explore. Among Gen X consumers, this figure rises to 86%. "Heightened by economic challenges, Thais also have a greater urge to travel domestically than before, seeking enriching experiences that foster a deeper connection with local cultures and communities," said Kaimook. "Brands can engage tourists on a profound level, for example, by offering curated local experiences focused on cuisine or cultural landmarks, elevating their appeal beyond mere products."
