To get an estimate of how both countries’ economic growth would be affected, one must consider both the direct effect of the trade war and all the potential adjustments in government policy and company strategy. This is not a simple matter. Without a comprehensive analysis, any estimates from ‘experts’ are likely to be off the mark. In the short run, a trade war will likely lead to lower economic growth. But how it affects economic growth beyond the short run depends on many factors.

In today’s China, where a number of changes have taken place and new status quo have emerged, future expectations for the macro-economy have changed significantly from previous ones. I believe that a Dominant Strategy (a game theory concept which involves utter confidence in your choices) is the solution to the current Chinese economic situation of "seeking out changes amid stable development". Read on for my analysis on China’s real estate & stock markets and its RMB exchange rate along with an outline of feasible solutions to challenges in those areas.

Combining people with different personalities and skillsets is often seen as a must for driving innovation and responding to a wide variety of customer demands in a globalized world. Organizational leaders should be aware, however, that diverse personalities in the workplace can be a double-edged sword if poorly managed. On one hand, it could prove beneficial in numerous task-driven situations; on the other hand, it could take an emotional toll on employees who are different from the majority of their colleagues.

Given Jack Ma’s proactive personality, Alibaba’s sustainable succession plan, and well-developed organisational culture and values, it is not surprising that Jack Ma is retiring, and he can do so with great confidence.

Think of leaders of great organisations who you either know personally or from their carefully crafted public image. Why are they good leaders? One word sums it up: credibility. It is difficult to build yet so easy to lose.

October 15, 2018. Shanghai – China Europe International Business School’s Global Executive MBA has moved up nine spots to #5 in the Financial Times’ 2018 ranking of the world’s top 100 EMBA programmes. This is the second CEIBS programme the FT has ranked within the top 10 this year. The CEIBS MBA was ranked #8 globally and #1 in Asia in January. This makes CEIBS the first ever Asian school to have two programmes ranked within the FT’s top 10. In the EMBA ranking released today, the CEIBS Global EMBA is also the highest-ranked stand-alone programme. All four programmes ranked above it are collaborations between at least two schools whose combined data are factored into the results. As the rankings have shown, the independently offered CEIBS Global EMBA offers an increasingly international and diverse experience in providing a world class education with continued improvements being made in the quality of the school’s research.

Dans un contexte global marqué par l’avènement de l’ère révolutionnaire suite à l’émergence de la technologie numérique, le monde des affaires est mené à la confrontation avec une véritable transformation en cours sans précédent. Le numérique a redéfini la structure industrielle, la modèle organisationnelle et le système de valeurs d’entreprise. Dans le domaine du digital, la Chine sort du commun par ses vision perspective et dynamisme innovateur grâce aux fameux BATHX (Baidu, Tencent, Huawei, Xiaomi) en forte croissance ces dernières années qui ont pour équivalents américains, le clan GAFA (Google, Amazon, Facebook, et Apple). Ces acteurs chinois, dynamiques sur la scène internationale, ont su impressionner le monde dans de nombreux domaines clés, tels que l’intelligence artificielle (IA), le Retail 2.0 et le service médicosocial, démontrant le savoir-faire d’une Chine en tant que puissance digitale émergente. Ce janvier dernier, dans le cadre de la première visite d’Etat du Président français Emmanuel Macron en Chine, les décideurs de haut niveau des deux pays ont expressément inscrit la coopération en termes d’innovation autour de l’IA comme l’un des domaines les plus importants où les deux pays travailleront ensemble. Le 29 mars, à l’occasion de la présentation du rapport intitulé Donner un sens à l’intelligence artificielle: pour une stratégie nationale et européenne du député de l’Essonne Cédric Villani au Président Macron, le Chef d’Etat de l’Hexagone a revalorisé à nouveau l’importance de l’IA et a relevé cette dernière à la hauteur de la stratégie nationale du pays en faisant appel que la France se mobilise pour jouer dans la cour des grands du domaine. Et si la France et la Chine métissent leurs avantages de façon réciproque et inter-bénéfique – l’expertise française en mathématiques et informatique, et la virtuosité chinoise dans les pratiques du Big Data et l’innovation commerciale – nous aurons la raison d’être optimistes que, la technologie de l’IA se verra transformée en intérêts économiques dans tous les secteurs d’affaires.

Human society has never been so deeply driven by technological innovation as it is today. Along with the advancement of internet infrastructure, cloud computing and big data have become mainstays of the healthcare industry and VR/AR applications are also gathering momentum in the medical field. The healthcare industry has become both a testing ground and a playing field for a string of emerging technologies. Only by keeping abreast of new technologies for smart healthcare can we spearhead the evolution of the healthcare industry.
