I think you under value china and xi jinping by a long way- why do you present him as alone and taking a large risk : he has at least 50 national leaders who trust him more than anyone else; he leads by example not by decree; he has formed a positive investigaive jounalism style with many broadcasters including CGTN; in china information technology is valued most for big data small not the dismal global1.0 of big data big the west spun; china understands that total transformation of education is needed the world over and is leading experiments on that; the world needs places with collaboration leaders if sustainability is to be what youth achieve from the interactuons of 3 generations - grand parents, parents, youth under 30 who have 10 years left on The Economist own Entrepreneurial Revolution ERworld.tv timelines started in 1968 EconomistChina.net chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

TURNING POINT china reaches out to world - for the first time cpc briefing put china's raelationships with the world as centre stage;  not just in trading oppeortunities but in dreaming of both peaceful co-existence and environmental security (ecological civilsation , green finance, shared experiences of renewing community sustainability and local security ...) understand why china has chsoen to lead world on spcific technologies eg artificial intelligence

emphasis on quality of value chians as diferent than quantity

china has already engaged in a lot of local pain in ending jobs that polluted environement and retaining people who lost these jobs; how do other countries do this

china can be both a bridge for investing in the world's least developed nations needs and an equal partner in co-creating technologies of the most advanced nations

belt road seeks to learn of each nation's and region potential - can we seize the opportunity of political advancement of mankind; what is science for if we cant; how can we transform institutes designed for global cooperation (see also 6 plus 1 summit)

china would like to be a joint major donor (and sustainability investor) in the development of nations with usa but will not be slowed down in taking on this responsibility with every technology innovation and friendships it can gravitate

singapore strait times : congratulations on doubling up on green development in line with jinping's innovation ideas on modernisation

japanese media - hopes to rapidly improve bi-lateal relations as soon as sunay's election settled

xi jinping neatly directed his leadership teams and party-building (a benchmark for grounded public servant leadership networking) interactivity over next 5 years towards 3 goals

  • to 2020 end extreme poverty in china
  • back from 2050 connecting goodwill across great powers to include india china and usa
  • 2020-2035 innovating how cpc serves the people and celebrates worldwide sustainability partnerships with a special focus on  a  technology  and social demands club of friendly devleoping nations

Deng Xiaoping used the terms Xiaokang society in 1979 as the party's relentless goal of Chinese modernization/rejuvenation

change education
go green
co-development - china is not interested in developing at expense of  any country
clarify how technology (industrial revolution 4) can help humanity
end corruption  of public servants- value transparency

more headlines

eg in last 3 years china is a different country , nobody uses cash or credit crads any more (credit rating data colection is effectively done by jack ma and  E12 Pony Ma  - the latter is both founder of tencent and party political member in shenzhen)

technology's most interesting square mile

Jim Kim china -a most succesful  "end poverty" story in human history

During Jinping's first 5 years of rejuvenating china, the country's ECOtech systems and Industrial Revolution 4 Techhubs have chnaged totally - no more cash and credit cards, mobile money and credit ratnings that value small tech start ups designed to end poverty as well as mapping ecosystems of startups and platform economies

earlier this week gordon brown addressed scots in edinburgh on how china's belt road mapping is essential to the sustainability generation but still barely understood by western institutions; for years now brown has been rabble rousing national leaders to change education - however his focus on funding has missed the point of what curricula can old classrrooms never virally network in time for youth to connect sutsainability - seeing belt road as a 5th grade up curriculum of geographic economies is now the most imporatnt message GB could apply his influence to- he probably hasnt had as a vital a moment on the world stage as the day in 2008 UK and EU banks started dying and by accident muhammad yunus was on downing street's schedule; having coffee with MY immediately before ths meeting was complicated - Yunus at that time was even aware that GB was scottish!

  2. China & India: Friends or foes?

    • 2 months ago
    China and India are two fast-growing economies, and both countries are members of the BRICS group of emerging economies.

Thursday, October 5, 2017

i believe the next 12 months is critical in maximising Chinese and English speaking youth's impact. In the 1990s I was working at the big management consultancies in london and my book brand chartering on valuing the most purposeful organisations influenced the 3 biggest ad agencies. Martin Sorrell WPP hired me for 18 months around the turn of the millennium. The dotcom boom and bust was a mixture of 3 systemic dynamics which were not primarily youth's fault:

financial greed

extraordinary community building ideas but with no western collaboration network, no united regional vision among public servants nor their media

technology which was very immature in connectivity

It seems to me that the great good fortune for China and potentially all sustainability generation is that China's mobile startup boom came a decade later with much more tech connectivity and the Chinese billion-persons demand for social innovation and people-centric development. While i have been tracking the values of Jack Ma since 2008 when he challenged my family friend Muhammad Yunus to who would create next 100 million jobs, i am fascinated to find that each of the founders of the BAT (Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent) are driven by different values than the owners of america's biggest internet properties

My family and friends aim to publish a booklet on 50 world record job creators coming from China and the East - as part of a debate that China is offering all nations one last chance to get back to sustaining communities, and directionally positive expoential orbits on all 17 goals by 2030. I don't seen any reason to be modest about how totally different China's two centenary goals are than the way eg wall street values the biggest organisation it invests in. As UN head Antonio Guterres said at the Belt Road Forum in May - this is the global2.0 we actively want to unite peoples round. To understand the race for big data small (to beat off big data big) i recommend to everyone that they attend one of jack ma's www.gateway17.com - a one day training session which changes 3000 peoples belief in what is possible at the same time

Starting with pilot at Columbia University, and a few contacts i have made after 7 visits to Beijing, . I am aiming to help students develop student union clubs on 7 applied-social wonders of the way forward if you value china's vision. For example while big data small tech is one of jack ma's wonders, his sponsorship of the olympics is an opportunity to celebrate all the graetest community action networks such as Thorkil's network for creating 1 million jobs for people with autism. Equally my fathers' alumni at The Economist  see Belt Road as a 21st C worlwide geo-economic curriculum that needs to be explored from 5th grader up.

If there are ways we could help each other, and connect Chinese and English speaking youth in unstoppably mediating china's visions, I would love to discuss further with any of you, anywhere anytime
