Start of March, and the “working” New Year of the OX is probably now almost back to normal. Most people who went away for their Spring Festival came back around a week ago after the statuary 7 days. Many others tacked an extra few days onto the event.
Hello, we don’t have a category for “art or creativity” [maybe we should?] so we will list this under technology. The event is a little old now, back in 2020, but was only recently confirmed and released as an article by the Guinness Book of Records last week – Feb 11th 2021.
Hello, welcome back after the Chinese Spring Festival or Asian New Year holiday.Today looking at something a little different, a focus more on China technology and the environment than directly marketing or business in China.

Hello, greetings, just in case you are wondering who WeRide is, maybe a short introduction, explanation is needed. Lets start out by saying no, they are not related to Tencent’s WeChat. In fact, strangely, and usually in China’s fast moving tech world and autonomous vehicles, it seems not even backed or supported by Tencent.
Just in case you missed it, this month, February, heralds the coming of the Chinese or Lunar New Year. Also known as Spring Festival in China and TET in Vietnam. This year, 2021 it falls on February 12th. The lead up, which starts as early as October for some brands, is possibly the busiest and […]
The start of 2021 has not been terribly encouraging. In fact, in some ways is mirroring its predecessor. Both years began tragically with aircraft crashes and loss of life followed by a surge in virus cases in China and massive increases globally.

This is a short story because, basically, words fail us. It revolves around a Weibo post from a Chinese company called Pure Cotton where a masked man is seen staking a woman at night.

If we are being honest, our first topic might not actually fit the definition of “news” as it is a few days old at time of publishing. Who knows how old when you read it. We are talking about the Chinese and European Union bilateral investment agreement that will expand European companies access to China’s economy.
Hello, Happy New Year – 2021! Beijing is having one of its coldest, meanest winters for a while. In fact, China is unusually chilly, a nation wide orange alert warning was issued last week. Not often we get that. Hope it is not so extreme where you are.As you may have guessed from our past […]

We have, on a few occasions, written about China’s Singles Day or Double Eleven shopping festivals. One month on from 2020’s Singles day, today’s article takes a sort of behind the scenes look at some more numbers. Those behind Alibaba’s side of the 11/11 extravaganza.
Perhaps for many people living outside China, the words China and environmental protection do not conjugate. Are a contradiction in terms. Indeed, outside China it is seen as a joke, lip service whilst inside, a source of frustration. The reasons for this are many, and complex, ranging from lack of technology to education and understanding.
Hello, today we look at a third and final – for this segment – in our China Live Streaming video trilogy. Last time we looked at how Alibaba’s Taobao Live Streaming app was used by fruit growers in China. We were hoping to dispel the myth that Life Streaming is only for high end luxury […]
Welcome, last time we looked at China’s 11/11 festival. Today we present the second in our trilogy of Alibaba focused short videos exploring what is now a mandatory tool in any brand’s China marketing tool box. The topic of “Live Streaming “in marketing to Chinese.
