China leads world in mobile tech

Source: Xinhua 2016-08-05 16:57:21

BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Silicon Valley has long enjoyed a reputation for technological innovation, while times may have changed as industry insiders are currently seeing China as further ahead, especially in mobile tech, the New York Times recently reported.

The Times article took WeChat, Alipay, and YY.com -- all native Chinese social media giants -- as outstanding examples that first popularized barcodes-scanning payment and money transfer, mobile order services and video-streaming, among other hits, that some U.S. tech giants, such as Facebook and Snapchat, are following suit.




Beijing, China.


In 2015, China has surpassed the United States in mobile payment. Also, more people in China, than anywhere else, are using mobile devices to order services, make friends and watch videos, according to the article.

Some business insiders interviewed by the Times shared the view that China has become the leader on many fronts in the mobile world. Ben Thompson, the founder of the tech research company Stratechery, told the Times that "the trope that China copies the U.S. hasn't been true for years," and in today's mobile world, "the U.S. often copies China."

The article also pointed out that in comparison with the idea among their U.S. peers of making apps simple, Chinese tech firms often stuff several functions into one app -- you can chat, order food and car rides, do shopping, book trips and hotels all through a single platform. They also allow other companies to grow within them to directly offer services, which have created many successful business stories, the article said.

Meanwhile, Chinese tech giants are also exploring overseas markets themselves. On Thursday, WeChat, the most widely used mobile messaging app in China, announced it was entering the New Zealand payments market with its automatic payment app WePay.

WePay has 400 million active users in China, processing over 500 million payment transactions a day.

*Western companies following centuries old practice of emulating and copying China whether it be acupuncture, Tai Chi, gunpowder, pasta & noodles, martial arts etc.

Anyone Looking To Make $300,000 Should Go Fly Planes In China

Kristen Lee

Today 9:35





The Chinese demand for travel has skyrocketed in recent years, which has in turn increased the need for experienced pilots to fly the tourists to their destinations. Some airlines want more pilots badly enough that they are offering salaries of $300,000 and above to foreigners. That’s a lot better than you can do elsewhere.

China’s airlines, which include Qingdao Airlines and Sichuan Airlines, are contacting as many pilots as they can, reports Bloomberg. Qingdao, which is a regional carrier, is offering as much as $318,000 a year. Sichuan, which travels to Canada and Australia, offers $302,000. Comparatively, a commercial senior-level captain’s salary tops out at around $209,000 in the United States, according to Bloomberg.


Sometimes, it’s not even the big and well-known airlines that are paying handsomely. Little-known startup airlines are paying close to 50 percent more than what some senior captains are making at Delta.

Demand in China is so high that its airlines need to hire about “100 pilots a week for the next 20 years.” Basically, there’s an unlimited need for pilots right now. International recruiters, from the U.S. to New Zealand, are given pretty much free rein to fill cockpits.

Along with lofty salaries, some recruiters offer signing bonuses, overtime pay and contract-completion payouts. One recruiter said that a monthly paycheck of a pilot who he signed at Beijing Capital Airlines was $80,000.

Eighty thousand dollars a month. Did your jaw just drop? Because mine sure did.

From Bloomberg:

Quote:
Aviation is booming in China, where the number of airlines has increased 28 percent to 55 in the past five years. The fleet has more than tripled in a decade to 2,650, according to the Civil Aviation Industry Statistics Report.

The growing ranks of low-cost airlines favor single-aisle jets such as the A320, which can seat about 180 people. With passenger numbers in China increasing 11 percent last year, carriers are scheduling more flights to handle demand. And that requires more captains.

Offering a fat paycheck is the only option for the newest carriers because they have minimal brand recognition and a limited performance record, said Liz Loveridge, who’s responsible for China recruitment at Rishworth Aviation in Auckland. Chinese airlines are paying as much as five times more than some Asia rivals for new hires, she said.

“They can’t attract people through any other means,” Loveridge said. “They think money’s the only answer.”
However, such rapid expansion seems to be outpacing the bureaucratic hoops that people have to jump through in order to start flying in China. The documentation, the work permits, the immigration and the medical insurance processes can still take up to two years to clear before a pilot can begin work.

Hiring foreign pilots is also seen as a social advantage. “Some of the airlines see some value in having a Western accent in the cockpit,” a recruiter told Bloomberg. “They’ve got the experience.”

Well, if you’re an Uber or a taxi driver and you’re tired of the threat of autonomous cars, maybe a new career is waiting for you in China.

Anyone Looking To Make $3, Should Go Fly Planes In China


1. Traditionally prosperous white western countries have hosted migrant communities. These white western countries are quite tolerant and democratic and have given citizenship and full legal rights to non-white migrants e.g. UK and others.

2. However just as we see a large white expatriate community working in the gulf for lucrative salaries we may see this happening more so in China in the future and possibly rather than Bangladeshi, Afghan, Turkish, African expatriate communities as in Europe, white expatriate communities in China.

I am not saying that these luxurious pilot salaries signify that, far from it...but in the future we may witness something like this. Brown people going to white countries, whites going to brown and yellow countries and the world becoming more and more mixed.
