The Inspiring Learning Conference will be hosted by Wellington College on the 26th and 27th of January in Tianjin. Keen to find out more about this transforming landscape, Business Tianjin Magazine spoke to the Senior Director of Academics for Wellington College China, Dr Ahmed Hussain. We wish this conference to become a successful event and great milestone in the bilingual education system of China.
Michael Hart provided to us an interesting review of Tianjin real estate market of past year 2018. Several key themes took center stage, such as the opening of much anticipated office and retail projects, new subway lines and stations, etc… Don’t miss it.
The economic slowdown seems to be continuing from the month before, signaling that the effects of the trade war may be beginning to show. Although the data showed growth, the deceleration of that growth should warrant attention. Analysts fear that the effects may extend beyond China’s borders and reach the global economy, given China’s importance as a vital producer and consumer on the global stage.
Recently we have got the news of many examples of China’s market opening up. German insurance company, Allianz, will be the first one to get the permission to set up an entirely foreign owned insurance holding in China. This move has come as a huge surprise, because something like this was not expected in at least next three to four years, based on Beijing’s earlier announcements. We did a deep analysis of this news in the Investment column.
In this issue, we also focus in the Chinese wine industry to know more about the 2nd world’s largest consumption market in 2020, not only based on the importation of world-class wines, but also on its own production.
There are many other interesting articles this month, and I invite you to read them all after having checked our content page. We are sure you will find topics that will help you in your professional and personal life, such as the benefits of diversity at workplace, the recent currency War or even the first battery-free phone.
