China’s Emerging Cyberspace Strategy & Power

»Posted by on Mai 25, 2016 in ? White space ¿ | Commentaires fermés sur China’s Emerging Cyberspace Strategy & Power

A closer look at China’s cyber strategy, and what it means for the world. China has been the center of attention on cyber issues and one of the very few countries yet to publish a report on its cyberspace strategy. People outside China who are eager to understand its cyber strategy are only disappointed by the lack of viable channels to find information they want. Such an information deficit has given rise to misunderstandings and misperceptions about what China would do and where it is heading in the cyber world.

China’s debt bubble threatens global economy- Nikkei Asian Review

TOKYO — Excessive debt held by Chinese companies and households is highlighting a grave reality behind the country’s economy. In a sign that this debt is being regarded as a risk to the global economy, it became a topic of discussion at a meeting of G-20 finance ministers and central bank governors held in February. China even appears to be taking steps similar to Japan’s moves in its own post-bubble era. Source : China’s debt bubble threatens global economy- Nikkei Asian...

China faces rising risks from labor unrest : 16 times more strikes in 2015 vs 2011

Labor unrest is on the rise in China, driven by its economic slowdown and rising expectations for wages and labor rights, and exacerbated by problems in both local governance and China’s social safety net.  Risks for businesses – both those with operations in China and those whose supply chains depend on Chinese manufacturing – are proving increasingly problematic. Incidents of labor unrest in China are increasing.  According to the China Labor Bulletin (CLB), Chinese workers engaged in around 185 strikes in 2011.  In 2015, the CLB reported 2944 strikes – 16 times as many.  Better reporting and data collection may account for some of this growth – but even taking this into consideration, the increase in the frequency of labor protests is...

Multinationals: Enduring China’s Slowdown?

For now, perhaps, but the longer term looks increasingly challenging. China’s economy continues to slow, creating conditions that challenge the business of multinationals. The latest PMI statistics out of China indicate that manufacturing is continuing to contract, as domestic and foreign demand remain weak. China is also in the process of restructuring away from a manufacturing-based economy toward a service-based economy. Multinationals have in recent years found themselves in an increasingly competitive market, finding rivals in domestic Chinese firms under a less encouraging regulatory environment. Will they endure China’s slowdown and changing economic climate? The short answer is, for now, yes. While some multinationals, such as Revlon and Best Buy, have...
