Ambassador Jean-Paul Senninger met Dr. Laura Altinger and Yossi Zahar from Earth Wake, recipient of the International Climate Finance Accelerator (ICFA) Spring Cohort 2020 in Luxembourg.

Earth Wake supports vulnerable communities, entrepreneurs and micro SMEs in Asia-Pacific to transition to climate-resilient practices and implement low-carbon solutions. Earth Wake will set up an investment fund and an investment vehicle in Luxembourg providing climate finance at scale through debt capital markets and technical assistance to enable Micro Insurance Institutions (MFIs) across Asia-Pacific to strengthen resilience, adapt to climate change and grow sustainably. Yossi Zahar stressed that “Earth Wake aims to quantify risk and to bring it to capital markets”.

Earth Wake will soon take full advantage of Luxembourg’s sustainable finance ecosystem in the Asia-Pacific region and provide European and international investors with an innovative investment route into climate and sustainable funds.

Press release for Luxembourg nationals currently abroad
17/03/2020

A Hotline for Covid-19 related enquiries is now available at our Embassy in Bangkok : +66 (0) 92 287 2418

The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs asks Luxembourg nationals and residents who are currently staying abroad or studying abroad to urgently check their possibilities to make their way back to Luxembourg.

Indeed, the availability of options to come back diminishes as more and more countries impose restrictions on movement. In these circumstances, there is a risk that a return to Luxembourg may soon not be possible anymore.

As of today, the Ministry recommends Luxembourg nationals and residents who are currently abroad, especially outside of the Schengen space, and depending on their particular situation, to check with their travel agency and/or airline for return flights to Luxembourg. If needed, contact the Luxembourg embassy accredited to the country in question https://maee.gouvernement.lu/fr/missions-diplomatiques/missions-diplomatiques-et-consulaires-luxembourgeoises.html , or the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs https://maee.gouvernement.lu/fr/directions-du-ministere/affaires-consulaires.html .

For Luxembourg nationals and residents who wish to return to Luxembourg, the borders will be open.

Starting March 1st: #Luxembourg first country in the world to offer free public transport nationwide

The very much anticipated day is finally getting closer. Starting this March 1st, public transport in Luxembourg will be free nationwide. The Grand Duchy will be the first country in the world offering this opportunity to everyone travelling on the bus, the train or the tram. Travelling will become much easier as a ticket to board any means of public transportation will no longer be needed. However, "first class train tickets and passes will remain valid: there will be no change or discount”, states the official mobility website www.mobiliteit.lu . As free public transport ends at the nation’s border, cross-border tickets have been reassessed and those of the almost 200,000 commuters from the neighbouring countries who use public transportation will benefit from reduced fares. The initiative will provide public transport users of today and tomorrow with a reliable, safe and friendly service, while trying to convince more people to use public transportation, reducing the use of private cars and making an important step towards reducing emissions and supporting the environment.

To celebrate the start into free public transport, twelve mini-concerts will be organised on February 29th in 4 railroad stations throughout the country: Belval-Université, Luxembourg, Pfaffenthal-Kirchberg and Ettelbruck. In addition, some mobile musical gigs will take place in busses, trams and trains, implicating some of Luxembourg’s well known entertainers like singer and songwriter Serge Tonnar or jazz pianist Michel Reis. The final celebration will take place during an exceptional collective concert at the “Neien Tramsschapp” in Luxembourg-Kirchberg.

GTCI Report 2020 - Global Talent in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

Luxembourg in the Top 10 of the worldwide INSEAD 2020 Global Talent Competitiveness Index

In January 2020, the INSEAD Business School published together with The Adecco Group and Google Inc. its 7th Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI), addressing the theme of Global Talent in the Age of Artificial Intelligence. The study "explores how the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing the nature of work and forcing a re-evaluation of workplace practices, corporate structures and innovation ecosystems. As machines and algorithms continue to affect a multiplicity of tasks and responsibilities and almost every job gets reinvented, the right talent is required not only to carry out new responsibilities and ways to work, but also to capture value from this transformative technology. The study analyzes which companies, countries or cities are best positioned to benefit from the AI revolution and tries to find out how we can guarantee that a joint effort be made to ensure that AI-driven increased productivity benefits society as a whole.

Switzerland is leading the 2020 GTCI ranking with a score of 81.26. The United States are 2nd (79.09) and Singapore comes in 3rd place (78.48). Luxembourg (73.94) ranks 8th of the 132 countries, leading the writers of the study to the following conclusions: “Luxembourg (8th) stands out in two dimensions regarding talent competitiveness: attracting (2nd) and retaining (4th) talent. As for the former, the country has a high degree of External Openness (2nd) thanks to the country’s strong ability to attract foreign business and talent. As for the latter, Luxembourg’s world-class pension system and social protection contributes to its solid Sustainability (2nd). The country is a highly innovative and entrepreneurial country (it ranks 3rd in Talent Impact), but its pool of Global Knowledge Skills (11th) would increase with greater High-Level Skills (19th). Luxembourg’s lowest rankings are in the Grow (19th) and Vocational and Technical Skills (16th) pillars, where areas for improvement include strengthening Formal Education (60th) and ensuring the Employability (25th) of domestic talent in the private sector.”

In parallel, the study also examined individual cities, that often are attracting talents. In this Global Cities Talent Competitiveness Index, considering the categories Enable, Attract, Grow, Retain and Global Knowledge Skills, Luxembourg-City ranks 49th amidst 155 cities worldwide. This ranking is lead by New York City, followed by London and Singapore. Further information is available here :https://gtcistudy.com/

The Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) is a firmly established global benchmark for issues related to talent competitiveness and the future of work.

Dear friends,
dear Luxembourgers residing in South East Asia,

in order to provide you with the latest updates and news on Luxembourg, in addition to sharing with you relevant information regarding the activities of my Embassy in this region, we have decided to reshape our old "Embassy in Vietnam" page into a new “Embassy in Thailand” page with a much broader scope.

Given that I and my team are also accredited to Vietnam, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore and the ASEAN Secretariat, I wish to regularly share with you information on all these countries and on ASEAN.
This platform will also ease any contact with us should you need any support from the Embassy, or should you have any queries regarding business and trade opportunities in Luxembourg.

I hope you will keep on following us, and that more and more friends will “like” and also join this group.

Jean-Paul Senninger, Ambassador

The Climate-Adapted Local Development & Innovation Project (VIE/033) implemented by LuxDev in Thừa Thiên-Huế Province aims to strengthen, adapt and protect people’s livelihoods and assets from the various manifestations of Climate Change – such as more frequent and stronger typhoons, severe floods in the rainy season, drought in the dry season, damage to natural resources and the ecosystem as well as a dramatic beach and dune erosion and loss of land to the ocean. These very visible manifestations of Climate Change are already having a major impact on people’s economic activities and lives, and are expected to exponentially increase over time.

A recent article explains how just one small project activity facilitates the lives of local fishermen (in Vietnamese):

At a time when defending women's reproductive rights remains more important than ever, we are pleased to share a short video on UNFPA Viet Nam's past project "Strengthening the accessibility and quality of reproductive health care with focus on safe motherhood, adolescent reproductive health and reproductive rights" that was implemented in cooperation with Vietnam's Family Planning Association (VINAFPA) with Luxembourg's financial support.
The project aimed to help Vietnamese people, youth and adolescents acquire the skills necessary to develop and sustain healthy and happy lives, particularly in areas with unmet needs for sexual and reproductive health, including family planning.
This 13-minute video highlights key achievements of the project, as well as details how to sustain these achievements and further apply them in other provinces, so that more vulnerable women, men and young people and adolescents, whether from urban or rural areas, or from majority or minority ethnic groups, will have access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care services.
