With the continuous improvement of "Chinese Services" and the application of practical teaching, the training goals of tourism management personnel in vocational colleges have changed. The launch of the World Skills Competition fits this trend and promotes the reform and development of the hotel management talent training model.. The World Skills Competition is hailed as the "World Skills Olympics". China participated in this project for the first time in 2015 (43th), and won consecutive gold awards in 2017 (44th) and 2019 (45th). Awards and restaurant service excellence awards have achieved zero breakthroughs in medals. The four majors covering cooking, baking, restaurant service, and hospitality of the hotel management major are all competitions in the personal and social service areas of the World Skills Competition. From August 22-27, 2019, the 45th World Skills Competition was held in Kazan, Russia. The Chinese delegation won a total of 16 gold medals, 14 silver medals, 5 bronze medals and 17 winning prizes in this competition. The gold medal list, medal list, and group total score are the first. China will host the 46th Shanghai World Skills Competition in 2021. In the future, we should focus on increasing international cooperation with members of the World Skills Organization, and closely follow hotel professional skills projects. It is hoped that the World Skills Competition will become the vane of the hotel management professional training and the level of colleges and universities.</p> Hongsheng Cai, Qilun Zhang ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 11 Feb 2020 11:51:00 +0000 THE PHILIPPINE MANGO GLOBAL COMPETITIVENESS: A VALUE CHAIN ANALYSIS USING GRAVITY MODEL <p>The competitive edge of the Philippines in the global market has been recorded in the trading history. Its contribution to the economy is notable; however trading is limited to fresh mangoes. Likewise, the continuous decrease of area planted to mangoes contributed to its bounded participation in global value chain. Meanwhile, some countries in Southeast Asia emerged in the industry and further threatened the entrance of Philippine mango in the foreign market. This situation will be altered by strengthening the country’s global competitiveness, gross domestic product and implementing policies on remoteness of the country as the result of integrating gravity model using the fixed effect panel regression.</p> Michael F.

Due to a great deal of attention for closed-loop supply chains, collection behaviour of used products from public consumers becomes more and more important. This paper proposes an inventory model for retailer with new products and used products and the retailer is the decision maker who follows the rule of Economic Ordering Quantity (EOQ) model. We assumed that the retailer not only sells products but also collects those sold used products. The proposed problem faced by the retailer is formulated as a cost-minimization problem where the replenishment quantity of new products and the return rate of used products are the decision variables and an efficient iterative algorithm is provided to search for the solution. Furthermore, we extend our model to consider the "not lot for lot policy" inventory model for forward channel and reverse channel and determine the optimal management policy. Finally, we discuss the economical decision modelling for a retailer to analyse the willingness of collecting used products.</p> Tzu-Chun Weng, Chen-Te Hsu ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 03 Mar 2020 11:03:53 +0000
