LG unveils environmentally friendly refrigerators

LG Electronics has introduced its latest line of advanced refrigerators in Saudi Arabia.
Designed with Saudi consumers in mind, LG claims the new refrigerators deliver convenience enhancing features, including dual door-in-door system, which keeps food fresh longer and helps the interior stay better organized.
“The new cutting-edge lineup is designed to meet the needs of eco-conscious Saudi consumers looking to maximize their convenience in the kitchen,” the company stated.
LG’s bottom-freezer refrigerators are industry leaders in efficiency, with a total no frost energy grade rating of A+++ -20 percent made possible by the refrigerator’s inverter linear compressor.
This advanced compressor utilizes a straight piston drive instead of the conventional one, resulting in less internal friction, higher reliability and greater durability with less noise.
LG refrigerators feature inverter linear compressors, which is nearly 32 percent more energy-efficient and up to 25 percent quieter than their non-inverter counterparts. The compressor is of high durability and is backed by 10-year warranty.
LG made consumers’ lives easier with its innovative door-in-door technology to give family members quick access to frequently sought food items.
The right door-in-door compartment is accessible from the outside at the push of a button, making the space perfect for items that are frequently consumed by every member of the family, such as snacks and drinks.
The left can be opened with the hidden easy open handle at the bottom of the door and is ideal for storing essential cooking ingredients such as pre-chopped vegetables, condiments and sauces.
Both compartments are equipped with moving baskets, enabling users to easily adjust the height of the internal compartments as they see fit.
“These advanced door-in-door refrigerators from LG provide innovative solutions in every home. They are perfectly designed to match the Saudi environment,” said Deuk Soo Ahn, president of Saudi LG Electronics.

Saudi students to visit Huawei HQ in China

The Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) is collaborating with Huawei, a global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, to launch Huawei’s fourth edition of the “Seeds for the Future” program. 

This year the Seeds for the Future program is expected to attract numerous projects from a wide range of universities in Riyadh, each with the potential to be selected for incubation. The initiative aims to develop ICT talent among Saudi students who will become tomorrow’s leaders. They will also receive focused mentoring from top Huawei executives and a chance to travel to Huawei’s global headquarters in Shenzhen, China, to gain exposure to the ICT solutions provider.

The company recently held a special ceremony for students participating in the program at the CITC headquarters in the Saudi capital. The event was attended on behalf of the CITC governor by Ahmed Al-Jarboo, vice president of corporate communications; Zhou Xinglong, counselor at the Chinese Embassy in Saudi Arabia; and Dennis Zhang, CEO of Huawei Tech Investment Saudi Arabia Ltd. 

CITC has been collaborating with Huawei since 2015 on Seeds for the Future. A total of 51 students have directly benefited as a result of the program, including through their visit to Huawei HQ in Shenzhen.

Al-Jarboo thanked Huawei for its efforts in “serving the community and its keenness on upgrading the Kingdom’s ICT sector.” He also urged students to benefit from the experience in expanding their knowledge.

Xinglong said: “This is another example of the close relationship we have with Saudi Arabia. I am proud of Huawei’s commitment to social responsibility and the important role played by this prestigious company in the development of Saudi youth.”

CEO Zhang said: “We are pleased to announce that we will continue to partner with the CITC for the Seeds for the Future in 2018. Saudi Arabia has a huge segment of young people and we are proud to announce our solidarity to empower these young people and give them the opportunity to sharpen their skills and help them become the leaders of tomorrow in the field of information and communication technology.”

He added: “Huawei is seeking to collaborate with government partners to develop an ecosystem for the ICT sector, and the key to this is to guide and support outstanding young talents in the field of ICT not only in Saudi Arabia, but to provide them with access to institutions to develop technologies that will help the Kingdom achieve its goals in its Vision 2030.”
