The Mercedes-Benz A Class

 

When choosing a new car, consumers see the "Gelber Engel" as a sort of seal of approval as it doesn't just look at design and image, but also takes into account criteria such as the vehicle's price-performance ratio, functionality, efficiency, safety and eco-friendliness. Around 290,000 readers of the ADAC's Motorwelt magazine as well as users of the club's internet presence took part in this year's vote. All-in-all, 52 cars were up for election, all of which came on to the market in 2012 for the first time. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class beat all of these to the top spot and is thus the favourite car of the Germans, being awarded the "Gelber Engel 2013" by Europe's largest automobile club.

The A-Class impresses with its progressive design. Its exterior demonstrates  a particularly independent, sporty character and is complemented by an innovative interior which exudes both class and quality. What's more, the  
A-Class offers excellent driving dynamics and engines which shine with great performance as well as modern, environmentally-friendly technology.

At the same time, the A-Class once again highlights the fact that safety at Mercedes-Benz is not a question of price. Amongst other systems, the COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST radar-based assistance system is fitted as standard. Furthermore, Mercedes-Benz has achieved yet another world first by comprehensively integrating the iPhone® into the vehicle's operating and display concept.

The exceptional position of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class in its segment had incidentally already been agreed upon by readers of AUTO BILD – a specialist magazine with massive circulation figures. The magazine had already voted the compact star the most attractive car in Germany as well as bestowing it the coveted AUTO BILD Design Award 2012.

Participants at the briefing yesterday

The Authority for Info-communication Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) continues to support ICT companies to participate in the prestigious CommunicAsia 2013 which will be held from 18 to 21 June 2013 at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.  A briefing was conducted at AITI last Thursday and 30 ICT related companies from the ICT Industry attended. 

AITI’s Chief Executive, Mr. Yahkup Menudin in his opening remarks, emphasized the importance of local ICT companies to develop and sell their own ICT services and products so that they can be marketed overseas instead of just being ICT resellers.  Assistant Chief Executive for International Relations, Mr. Wallace Koh Hoe Aik, later briefed the audiences on the terms and conditions of AITI’s subsidised program for overseas exhibiition. BruGPS and Folec  Communications also shared their success stories from their participation in CommunicAsia 2012 last year as an encouragement and sharing their experiences.  Ms Claudine Ang from Singapore Exhibition Services Pte Ltd, organizer for CommunicAsia 2013, was on-site to brief the ICT companies with regards to the venue and preparation process for participating in the event.

CommunicAsia 2013 will feature leading and home-grown exhibitors that will showcase comprehensive range of key and emerging technologies from augmented reality, FTTx, mobile broadband, mobile applications and innovations, nextgen connected services, NFC and mCommerce, OTT, smartphones & devices, telecom power solutions and many others. AITI is confident that CommunicAsia 2013 will continue to provide an excellent opportunity for our local ICT companies to get maximum exposure to potential buyers and to strike partnerships and deals.  Local ICT companies can also leverage this event to establish business networks and alliance with prominent ICT players from all over the world.


Reza Faizal of Folec Communications



As part of an ongoing effort in helping the local ICT Industry to participate in the international exhibition, AITI has came up with a series of incentives/subsidies for ICT companies which are keen to participate in the CommunicAsia 2013.  The subsidies include;
• One return economy air-ticket to Singapore for each participating company
• One standard hotel room.
• Transportation from airport to hotel vice versa
• A 3x2m or 3x3m booth within the Brunei Darussalam Pavilion inclusive of an A1 size colour company posters
 
Local ICT companies who have their own ICT products/services or have their regional product distributorships are encouraged to participate. Companies that are registered under AITI Accredited Business (AAB) Status will be given priority due to booths limitation. There will be a nominal participating fee of B$500 for each locally registered ICT company.  Application form can be obtained online from www.aiti.gov.bn. The deadline for submission to AITI’s office is on 15 March 2013.
