CDF之声 | Visa公司董事长兼首席执行官艾克礼:疫情挑战使所有人走到一起 返回 CDF之声 列表>



“CDF之声”栏目旨在汇聚关注、支持和参与论坛的重要商业领袖,向国内公众和国际社会传递论坛与会代表的心声。



新冠肺炎已演化为全球危机,“CDF之声”借此推出特别系列,全球500强与行业领先企业CEO针对疫情影响下的中国和全球局势发声。今天发声是Visa公司董事长兼首席执行官艾克礼(Al Kelly)。

Visa公司董事长兼首席执行官艾克礼(Al Kelly)在视频中表示,Visa与所有提供保护和支持,并努力与疫情抗争的各国政府、当局和医疗专家站在一起。


为支持中国抗击疫情,Visa通过Visa基金会向中国红十字基金会提供捐赠,还启动了全球“员工捐赠雇主配捐计划”;一批Visa中国员工在当地自愿组织采购,向有需要的医院和儿童运送重要医疗物资。

艾克礼相信,疫情的挑战会使所有人走到一起。同时,他也期待未来在中国发展高层论坛跟大家会面。


“我们相信,更多社会团体、私人组织及慈善机构跨越国界、携手合作,将为我们带来坚持奋战的勇气和力量。”


以下是视频中英文全文:


新型冠状病毒疫情牵动着所有人的心。面对挑战,Visa的首要任务是确保我们在中国和世界各地的员工及其亲人的安全。


在各国政府、当局和医疗专家加紧努力与疫情抗争之时,我们会与所有保护和支持我们的人站在一起。


Visa基金会向中国捐赠了25万美元,用于支持奋战在湖北省武汉市受疫情影响的民众及抗击疫情一线的医务工作者。Visa还启动了全球员工捐赠雇主配捐计划。


此外,在二月中国疫情最严重的时候,一批Visa中国员工自愿组织当地采购,向有需要的医院和儿童运送重要医疗物资。


这些努力展现了Visa对中国承诺的力度和深度。我们植根中国三十余年,始终恪守对中国的长期承诺。而现在,这一承诺比以往任何时候都更重要。


随着疫情在世界各地扩散,Visa正与我们的客户和政府合作伙伴紧密协作,深入了解疫情对经济的影响。


在这一挑战重重的时期,我们也在努力确保最高的服务标准和安全标准。


最后,我相信疫情的挑战会使所有人走到一起。Visa的企业使命是通过最创新、最可靠和最安全的数字支付网络,助力个人、企业和经济的蓬勃发展。


我相信,更多社会团体、私人组织及慈善机构跨越国界、携手合作,将为我们带来坚持奋战的勇气和力量。


谢谢大家!

The outbreak and spread of coronavirus is front of mind for everyone.  In these challenging times, Visa is focused first and foremost upon ensuring the safety of our employees and their loved ones in China and around the world.


As governments, authorities and medical experts intensify efforts to fight the pandemic, we stand with all who are working to protect and support our communities.


In China, The Visa Foundation has provided USD250,000 to support affected populations and frontline medical workers, particularly in Wuhan and Hubei Province.  Visa also launched a matching gift program for donations made by Visa employees globally.


In addition, at the peak of the epidemic in China last month, a group of Visa China employees volunteered to organise the local purchase and delivery of critical supplies to hospitals and children in need.


These efforts reflect the strength and depth of Visa’s commitment to China.  For more than 30 years we’ve been operating in China, and we have always been focused on the long-term, which is now more important than ever.


As coronavirus continues to spread in many regions around the world, Visa is working closely with our clients and government agencies to understand the economic impact.


We are also working to ensure that we maintain the highest standards of service and security for all of our customers during this challenging time.


In closing, I believe that coronavirus challenges all of us to come together. Visa’s corporate mission is to connect the world through the most innovative, reliable and secure digital payment network that enables individuals, businesses, and economies to thrive.


I am confident that partnerships extending beyond borders – among public, private, and charitable organisations – will provide the collective strength we need to persevere.

Thank you.
