The many faces of modern China #1 @ online
jun 2 @ 20:00
The many faces of modern China #1 @ online

Over the past decades, China’s economy has been characterised by rapid growth, which has lifted more than 850 million people out of poverty since 1978. At the same time, the country’s income inequality significantly increased. Together with academics and creative minds we discuss the driving forces behind economic growth in China and how its society transforms as a result of it, creating unprecedented prosperity for many, but not for all. What is the key to understanding China’s economy?

It is safe to say that the economic reforms and opening up of the Chinese market to international investors has brought unprecedented prosperity and completely transformed China’s society. Notwithstanding this impressive achievement, China’s economic development has resulted in diverging realities. While China overtook the U.S. last year to become the country with the most people among the world’s richest 10%, some regions and social groups have stayed behind, as inequality increased significantly over the last decades as well. And at a time when the Chinese government is investing heavily in the economy of the future, an ageing population, overheated property markets, and more recently, the Corona Virus, are only some of the economic challenges that need to be overcome. This evening we plunge into the Chinese economy and discuss rapid urbanisation, trends in rural areas and the fate of those who have stayed behind.

China Pubquiz @ online
mei 28 @ 20:30
China Pubquiz @ online

Al vijf jaar verzorgen Fred Sengers (Blogaap) en Ed Sander (ChinaTalk) samen met China netwerk Guanxi met veel plezier de Grote China Kennisquiz. Normaal vindt deze elk jaar rond het Chinese Nieuwjaar plaats. In deze tijden van corona ‘lockdown’ zijn veel pub quizzen uit noodzaak online gegaan omdat het niet mogelijk is deze in volgepakte kroegen te spelen. Vandaar dat Fred en Ed hebben besloten de China quiz ook een keer online te spelen.

Hoe doe je mee?

Houd de avond van donderdag 28 mei vrij in je agenda. Die dag starten we om 20:30 met de live-stream op het YouTube kanaal van ChinaTalk. De stream is te vinden onderaan deze pagina en op deze link.

Zorg dat je een lekker drankje hebt, wat hapjes en eventueel een team om samen mee te spelen (zie onder). De quiz duurt ongeveer 2 uur en bestaat uit zes ronden. Tussendoor zullen we nog 5 minuten extra pauze inlassen.

  • Ronde 1: Film en muziek
  • Ronde 2: Algemeen of thema
  • Ronde 3: Geschiedenis
  • Pauze
  • Ronde 4: Algemeen of thema
  • Ronde 5: Chinternet
  • Ronde 6: Algemeen of thema

Vanwege de online mogelijkheden zal de quiz veel gebruik maken van audiovisueel materiaal, wat het vergeleken met de reguliere quiz weer erg bijzonder maakt.

Bij een normale quiz zijn Ed en Fred erg streng op het gebruik van mobiele telefoons om te voorkomen dat mensen de antwoorden gaan opzoeken. Bij een online quiz kunnen ze dat natuurlijk niet controleren. Je speelt dus puur voor de lol. Wat echter niet wil zeggen dat je het niet serieus kunt aanpakken. De quiz wordt via live-streaming uitgezonden op YouTube maar je kunt via andere media, b.v. WeChat, Zoom of Skype, contact houden met andere leden van je team. Natuurlijk kun je ook individueel meespelen.

Er zijn geen prijzen te winnen maar de quizmasters zijn wel heel erg benieuwd hoe iedereen het gedaan heeft dus ze horen achteraf graag hoeveel punten er gescoord zijn door de deelnemers. Ze laten je tijdens de uitzending weten hoe je je score met hen kunt delen.

China consumer F&B trends and routes-to-market @ online

Webinar: ‘China consumer F&B trends and routes-to-market for European brands including food safety and regulations’

China has one of the most dynamic and complex consumer market places in the world today. It was not long ago that China was a push market, where international companies were “telling” Chinese consumers what they should want. Now companies have to “listen”, they have to anticipate, and the needs of Chinese consumers are becoming more and more distinct.

The Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (BCECC) will be organizing a webinar on ‘China consumer F&B trends and routes-to-market for European brands including food safety and regulations’ on June 2, 2020 at 10h30 CET (16h30 CST).

During this webinar Mr. James Sinclair, partner of InterChina and Mr. Leslie Lambregts, Director of International Affairs of the Federal Agency for the Safety of Food Chain (FASFC) will be holding presentations about the significant consumers trends in China and food safety.

Agenda:

10:30-10:40: Welcome words by Mr. Bernard Dewit, Chairman of BCECC, and Mrs. Petra Van Bouwelen, International Business Development Manager of Voka – Mechelen-Kempen
10:40-11:10: Presentation on ‘Consumer F&B trends in China and routes-to-market for European F&B brands’ by Mr. James Sinclair, partner of InterChina
11:10-11:40: Presentation on ‘Food safety, veterinary and phytosanitary requirements for trade of agricultural products and foodstuffs between Belgium and China’ by Mr. Leslie Lambregts, Director International Affairs of the Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FASFC)
11:40-12:00: Q&A session

Location:

The webinar will be held on Zoom (link will be sent out to participants upon registration).
