    The scorched-earth war between Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and his one-time mentor, former Premier Mahathir Mohamad, has extended to the northern state of Kedah, where Mahathir’s son, Mukhriz, rules as chief minister. The federal government in Putrajaya reportedly has cut budget allocations to the state, one of the country’s poorest, and is dragging […] The post Malaysia’s PM Extends Feud to Mahathir’s Son appeared first on Asia Sentinel.
  • Why China Will Never Rule the World

    For the first time in the history of foreign writing on China, a book with only one disingenuous feature: the title. You can read that title, Why China Will Never Rule the World, and be forgiven for assuming author Troy Parfitt has laboriously amassed a 400+ page tome of weighty analysis with which to assess both sides’ chances in the next Cold War. Pish posh. If you ask Mr. Parfitt, China doesn’t rule because, to employ the threadbare idiom, it sucks. Thus with the title does Parfitt deftly bait jingoistic square heads and other one-percenters who won’t read a book about China unless…

    Last weekend I went to Gulsay Cemetery at the south end of Ürümchi, back behind the power plants right next to the lowest foothill of the eastern section of Heavenly Mountains. Many Uyghur, Kazakh, and Hui heroes are buried in this cemetery; people often just refer to it as “the Muslim cemetery.” Looking at the markings around you, it feels as though you are in a completely Muslim world. In the Uyghur section of the cemetery all of the signs are only in the Arabic script of modern Uyghur. There is little sign in this community of the dead that we’re in the largest Chinese city in…

  • Poll Shows Even Split Ahead of Greek Referendum

    3 Jul 2015 | 2:01 am
    (ATHENS, Greece) —The brief but intense campaign in Greece’s critical bailout referendum ends Friday, with simultaneous rallies in Athens for “Yes” and “No” supporters in what an opinion poll shows will be a very close race. The poll published in To Ethnos newspaper showed the “Yes” campaign slightly in the lead but well within the margin of error. It also showed an overwhelming majority — 74 percent — want the country to remain in Europe’s joint currency, the euro, compared to 15 percent who want a national currency. Prime…

    The Hungarian government is so concerned about the number of young Hungarians leaving the country that it is offering to fly them home and pay them to stay. “Come home, young person!” is a new program aimed at persuading Hungarians living abroad to return to their home country. A Hungarian government event in London on June 28 to promote the program touted its promise of a free return flight, a 100,000 forint monthly allowance (about $350) for a year, and the possibility of a job close to family, Hungary Today reports.

  • Chinese Stock Markets Are in the Middle of an ‘Unprecedented’ Slide

    In what analysts are describing as an unprecedented economic situation, China’s stock indexes are currently tumbling into a free fall, with panic taking the place of the brash confidence that, until last month, led these markets to rapidly develop into an unsustainable bubble. That bubble appears to have now burst: by early afternoon local time on Friday, the Shanghai Composite Index had fallen 3.25% to an anemic 3,785.57 points; in the three weeks since it reached a seven-year high, it has lost 30% of its value. Monetary authorities in Beijing are currently grasping for straws to…

    (BEIJING) — A magnitude 6.5 earthquake shook buildings in China’s far western region of Xinjiang on Friday, sending people out onto the streets, but there were no immediate reports of casualties from the sparsely populated area surrounding the epicenter. The quake hit Pishan county in the Hotan region of Xinjiang at a depth of about 10 kilometers shortly after 9 a.m. Friday, the China Earthquake Networks Center said. “Buildings were trembling and people rushed to the streets,” said Jin Xingchang, an express courier in Hotan city, about 15 kilometers away from Pishan.

A Soyuz-U rocket blasted off as scheduled from Russia-leased Baikonur launch pad in Kazakhstan, placing the Progress M-28M cargo ship into a designated orbit. The previous Progress launch in April ended in failure, and on Sunday a U.S. supply mission failed too when SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket broke apart shortly after liftoff.

    America fights, in other words, while China does business, and not only in Afghanistan. In Iraq, where U.S. troops brought down a dictator and are still fighting an insurgency, Chinese oil companies have acquired bigger stakes in the oil business than their American counterparts. In Pakistan, where billions in U.S. military aid helps the government keep the Taliban at bay, China has set up a free-trade area and is investing heavily in energy and ports. via China succeeds by behaving more like a multinational company than a global superpower.

    Imagine eating meat from one of these cows 40 years from now. Now imagine your company not having a program in place to prevent that from happening. Last week it was reported that over $480 million worth of frozen meat – some of which dated from the 1970s – had been illegally smuggled into China where it was seized by Chinese customs officials. The frozen beef, chicken, and pork products had never passed through China Customs and, consequently, had not been inspected for compliance with required Chinese health regulations. Is it even possible that the buyers of these frozen meat products…

    Make sure that your entertainment contracts are tailored to work in China. I touched on this topic during my recent webinar for the China-Britain Business Council about China Film Intellectual Property. Most of my comments apply equally to all industries, not just the film industry. Chinese contracts are usually simpler and shorter than contracts used in the West. The specialized vocabulary taken for granted in Western film contracts is still emerging in China contracts, so commonly used expressions or concepts may be misunderstood or simply inapplicable.

    China is now the world’s third largest overseas foreign investor, behind only the United States and Japan. With the inception of China’s “Go Global Campaign” in the early 2000s, in just 10 years Chinese Overseas Foreign Direct Investment (OFDI) has grown from a mere trickle to an estimated $120 billion in 2014. Within two years, it is estimated that Chinese outbound foreign investment will exceed inbound investment in China. Some Chinese government agencies estimate that total OFDI from China will exceed two trillion U.S. dollars by 2020. Contrary to popular belief, taking…

The purpose of that post, BREAKING NEWS: Leading China International School Lays Off Employees, was to generate discussion as to how China’s international economy is impacting expats in China. My theory was that the layoffs at this prominent school were a reflection of what is happening in the expat community as a whole.

Most reactions are mildly positive.  Ian Johnson: For decades, moving government offices outside Beijing has been a taboo subject. In the 1950s, a prominent architect and urban planner, Liang Sicheng, proposed building an administrative center outside the old city. The idea, however, was rejected by Communist China’s first leader, Mao Zedong, and his associates as…

    As mounting violence in recent years has led to an ongoing security crackdown in Xinjiang, the diverse northwestern region of China has increasingly become a focus in Western media reports. Central authorities work hard to manage the media narrative on the sensitive region by restricting journalists’ access to certain areas and harassing foreign reporters who visit, issuing a steady flow of censorship directives related to specific incidents, and insisting that domestic outlets follow state media’s lead in their coverage.

  • Carefully Translate

    John Pasden
    24 Jun 2015 | 7:07 pm
    I love how this translation is technically correct (and perfect English, mind you)… outside of context: As usual, context is key for a correct translation. This sentence is ambiguous because of the word 地. Is it (de, neutral tone), the structural particle that turns words into adverbs? Or is it (dì, fourth tone), meaning “ground”? If it’s the former, you get, “carefully slide.” If it’s the latter, you get, “be careful; the ground is slippery.” Computers, those infamously stupid translators, still have a hard time with context.

    One thing that many non-Chinese may not realize is that the average Chinese person doesn’t really care about dragon boat races on Dragon Boat Festival. Sure, we call it “Dragon Boat Festival” in English, but the dragon boats () are just the easiest part of the festival’s traditions to translate. In fact, Wikipedia uses the name Duanwu Festival for its English article, reflecting the Chinese name . The most visible tradition of Duanwu Festival for me personally has always been the zongzi (), those bamboo-leaf-wrapped, stuffed glutinous rice triangle-ish things.

  • Apple to Locate Asia-Pacific Data Centre in Guizhou, China?

    David Feng
    12 Jun 2015 | 7:17 am
    The China News Service is reporting that Apple may locate its Asia-Pacific data centre in Guizhou. Apple vice-president Lisa Jackson was quoted as saying they would hope to further talk with the province of Guizhou, as well as Foxconn, in locating its Asia-Pacific data centre there. Jackson reportedly took a look at the province’s developments in big data, infrastructure, and education, and was well-impressed with the natural environment. She also met with Chen Ming’er, a local official. This would, however, mean that Apple would now have to play by PRC state laws and regulations.

  • Over 200K Taobao Fraud Transaction Accounts Targeting Uber

    CIW Team
    2 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    In the costly-spending O2O field, almost all firms have a grievous history of fraud transactions and anti-fraud transactions. Uber, Didi, and other vehicle calling services have become the trades favoured by many over the past two years, due to their high-profile spending of scores of millions US dollars every day. The forms of fraud transactions by Uber, Didi, Kuaidi One and other apps are not so much differentiated. But Uber gives the highest subsidies. So both Uber and his counterparts are fraud transactions on Uber; they also persuade “customers” to click farm on Uber. Only when Didi…

    One of our many crowd control sand castles at Qingdao’s beach: Turns out that building a anti-social sand castles is not the most effective way to keep the overly-curious, camera-happy, Chinese public off your kids at the beach. The sand castles help, but the best way to shield your kids from strangers’ unwanted attention is to go to the beach with your Chinese friends. For whatever reasons, when we’re at the beach with a Chinese family or two, strangers pretty much leave us alone. And it requires a lot less digging.

    Nearly eight in 10 adults in China now have a bank account, according to the 2014 Global Findex. This represents a 15 percentage point increase since 2011. According to the survey, the number of global unbanked has decreased from 2.5 billion to 2 billion in the past three years, and China’s progress has been a major driver of this change. In fact, the 2014 Findex found that of the world’s 500 million newly banked adults, more than one third (180 million) live in China. Three positive trends emerge from this data. 1. Rural and poor people constitute many of the “newly banked” adults.

With a route length of 576 kilometers (358 miles), it connects the capital cities of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and Guangdong Province of China.    Guangxi is rich in natural resources and home to dozens of ethnic minorities. But economic development has been relatively slow there compared with coastal regions in China.

It seems that with each visit I make, a newer, taller building is being built, a road is being paved and, from time to time, a new shopping mall is waiting to be opened.

  • Are there Many Fake ISO 9001 Certifications in China?

    Renaud Anjoran
    2 Jul 2015 | 3:51 am
    I saw several people mentioning fake certificates recently in the context of Chinese manufacturing. While I know there are many fake product certificates, I don’t think there are many fake ISO 9001, ISO 14001, or ISO/TS16949 certificates. My point of view is simple. There are many registrars, and many “consultants” that “guarantee a pass” and that know which registrars are very lax. It means factories simply pay and get the certification. It is not much more difficult than faking it. The advantage of a “real but undeserved” certificate is that a real…
  • How to Send Good Design Files to Chinese Manufacturers

    Renaud Anjoran
    29 Jun 2015 | 7:00 pm
    In the past I explained how to structure a product specification sheet to ensure the supplier knows what is expected regarding the finished product. However, proper communication with Chinese manufacturers should start much earlier. If you have designed your own product and you want it to be made in China, make sure you follow some best practices when sending the technical design files to the supplier. We guess that 50% of the issues related to China manufacturing come from unclear requirements up front. In other words, poor quality design files. Below is an outline of what we include in…

    When obtaining serious business depends on the result of an audit, Chinese factories often engage a consultant. Unfortunately, in 99% of cases the focus is on “making paperwork look good” rather than improving systems and processes. I am going to describe each approach. 1. Consultants that make paperwork look good As an auditing agency, we see consultants, or evidence of their work, quite often.

The problem is, the satisfactory completion of an order usually depends on a few key people, such as: The old guy who does the setups but doesn’t document them The salesperson who remembers what is important for the customer and repeats it every time to production people The owner’s wife who keeps an eye on production quality The problem is, what happens when these key people switch jobs, retire, or…

"Yuan" is the actual unit, and seems to be the more casual term used by every day people on the streets. Similar to the way "sterling" and "pound" are used in the U.K. Bank notes come in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100, they are all different sizes and colors.

Last week it was reported that over $480 million worth of frozen meat – some of which dated from the 1970s – had been illegally smuggled into China where it was seized by Chinese customs officials. The frozen beef, chicken, and pork products had never passed through China Customs and, consequently, had not been inspected for compliance with required Chinese health regulations.

Most of my comments apply equally to all industries, not just the film industry. Chinese contracts are usually simpler and shorter than contracts used in the West. The specialized vocabulary taken for granted in Western film contracts is still emerging in China contracts, so commonly used expressions or concepts may be misunderstood or simply inapplicable.

China’s manufacturing PMI was 50.2, lower than the expected 50.3, and unchanged from the reading in May. The month’s official data was at odds with private survey data, which showed a worsening contraction than initially expected. The final reading of the HSBC/Markit…

    As a previous small-town girl that was doing the Hohhot hustle for a good three years, I feel as if the capital has ruined me. I’m about to complete my first year in Beijing, and the only word I can find to describe it is “easy”. The upside: I’ve had my best friend visit me, I’ve had cheaper flights to other world capitals, I’ve become a published writer, I’ve had access to the over-priced western food I missed so dearly, I’ve been able to meet tons of new friends, I’ve learned how to online shop in China, drink a plethora of craft beer, and have some other awesome things…

  • How to Handle an Emergency in China

    19 May 2015 | 7:55 pm
    Life. Is. Nuts. I can not believe how many times I have been in bizarre situations in China and came out of them like a bo$$. Some of my friends, on the other hand…well, that’s a different story. Working your way through an emergency in China is merely all about luck and connections. If you can speak the language, you’re going to make out better than a tourist. If you’re Chinese, you’re at the top of the ladder. If you have a good support system like local or determined friends, even better. While all of these occurrences are going to seem extremely irresponsible, I’ll go ahead…

    You’ve probably heard quite a few people say that moving overseas was the best decision they’ve ever made in their life. I’m definitely one of those people. Moving out to Asia nearly three years ago was a big decision – and one that many people I knew doubted at the time – but I’ve enjoyed every day of my life since I made the big move and have grown so much along the way. I can’t even imagine what life would be like if I didn’t make this jump. Moving overseas isn’t something you just do overnight. You need to plan things out and make sure that you’re ready to make…

No work. Just play. All day. All day. Thinking of going into the poetry biz, if you couldn’t tell. Aside from the men, women, and children constantly trying to sell me Rayban knock-offs (I bought four pairs) and outlandishly patterned parachute pants (I bought 3 pairs), Vietnam was by far one of, if not, the greatest traveling experience I’ve ever had. Here’s a guide on what to do, what to…

    Wilma Oakes
    3 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    If you were ever lost in the desert and came across Crescent Lake, you probably would think it was a mirage. Just under 4 miles south of Dunhuang, Gansu Provine, Western China, and surrounded by the Echoing-Sand Mountain lies this natural wonder in the Gobi Desert. The lake contains pure spring water and is 715 feet long from east to west, and 177 feet wide from north to south. An aerial view of Crescent Lake outside of Danhuang, China: It’s crazy to think just how this little paradise in the desert has survived for 2000 years, but there is a reason. How the Crescent Moon Lake is able…
  • 10,000 People Suing Jiang Zemin in China—This Is a Big Deal

    2 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    Yes, this is a big deal. Not only have over 10,000 people filed lawsuits against China’s former leader Jiang Zemin since May 2015, but millions more are planning to do so. Firstly, it’s a very new development that a person could actually file a criminal lawsuit against a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader and not be imprisoned or killed for it. President Xi Jinping is taking on the old leader and his cronies for corruption, and Falun Gong practitioners are using this chance to call for Jiang to be brought to justice, and an end to the decades-long persecution against them.

    Thousands of protesters marched in Hong Kong on Wednesday calling for full democracy, and for the resignation of the mainland Chinese-controlled city’s leader. It is has only been a few weeks since lawmakers voted down the electoral reform package that was backed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leaders in Beijing. There was a large number of police closely watching the crowds, as some protesters, also known as “localists,” asked for greater autonomy, or even independence from the mainland. Some protesters carried signs that read “Hong Kong nation,”…

    1 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    Thirteen-year-old Chunjing Neumann loves history and practicing his viola, and is in many ways a typical 7th grade student. But when it came to a choice between a relaxing European holiday with his grandparents or riding his bike 3,000 miles across the U.S. in 45 days, he chose the grueling bike ride. The reason? To bring attention to China’s persecution of Falun Gong, and to rescue children orphaned by the persecution. The Ride To Freedom started in L.A. on June 1 and finishes in Washington, D.C. Chunjing’s commitment and dedication has impressed many of those around him, including…

    This picture of a strange house design in Taoyuan, Taiwan, posted by a blogger has triggered a heated discussion online. The weird thing is that besides the front door on the first floor, there’s another door on the second floor that leads to nowhere but the air. That is to say, there are no stairs connected to it. But why is that? Bloggers are making all kinds of guesses: “Does the homeowner have light body kungfu?” “This is definitely Doraemon’s Anywhere Door.” “Maybe the owner is Doraemon’s fan.” “What a…

    On several occasions in the last few months one of my roommates has made notable personal sacrifices to help others. Specifically, for up to weeks at a time he has shared his room with friends or relatives from his hometown while they try to find a new job or apartment in Shanghai. This might not seem like a big deal, but considering the facts that he hardly knew one of these people, that his room is so small that the entirety of unused space allows one to take about one full step before reaching his bed or desk, and that some of his guests had substantial luggage to store that took many…

One of the leading, Confucian-inspired theorists is Jiang Qing 蒋庆 (pictured to the left).

More specifically, I wanted to briefly outline Jiang’s tri-fold institutional…

    The other week my roommate and I chatted a bit about dating in China vs. dating in the US. A brief part of what he said happened to touch on how economics and gender, among other things, affect dating practices in college for many Chinese students, and I thought I would quickly share some of we touched upon. The topic arose when it came time to pay after finishing a meal together (for my roommate’s birthday, no less). While I almost exclusively go dutch (i.e., split the bill or pay for my own part of the bill) when dining out with friends in America, groups of friends in China usually…

  • Why China Will Never Rule the World

    admin
    29 Jun 2015 | 8:45 pm
    For the first time in the history of foreign writing on China, a book with only one disingenuous feature: the title. You can read that title, Why China Will Never Rule the World, and be forgiven for assuming author Troy Parfitt has laboriously amassed a 400+ page tome of weighty analysis with which to assess both sides’ chances in the next Cold War. Pish posh. If you ask Mr. Parfitt, China doesn’t rule because, to employ the threadbare idiom, it sucks. Thus with the title does Parfitt deftly bait jingoistic square heads and other one-percenters who won’t read a book about China unless…
