Rise and fall of foreign auto’s in China

Hello, greetings from Shunyi for Thursday 21st September. Last week we looked at European Auto Brand History in China which focused briefly on the rise of the motor car in China and the foreign brands driving it. This article looks at where things may be now in this bloody, vicious battleground and bitterly competitive market.

Thinking Differently

Hello, and again, welcome from Shunyi for September 21st. ‘Tis Mid Autumn Festival celebration in China, Asia. Colloquially called Moon Cake day.

Bicyu / Uengager: What we do.

There are many truisms in life, for example, China is a very big country. Yet it is not just one very big market.

The NEW Order

One thing about life you can be sure of is you can never be sure of anything. OK, yes, corny, pseudo philosophic introduction. We could just have easily said that nothing in life stays the same.
