The "hostage-taking" of a Chinese manager marks a new chapter running a trade war.
We all understand meanwhile that Huawei´s CFO Sabrina Meng Wanzhou was effectively used as leverage in ongoing trade negotiations between the countries.
It is mostly related to the development advantage of 5G, AI, the Surveillance technology where China is progressing faster, the Quantum technology and the Belt and Road project, a massive investment drive to connect Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa by land and sea. Europe already lost the tech race related to internal political problems. Read the declaration of Huawei to 5G in the Financial Times (China):
华为称在5G商业合同方面全球领先。华为轮值首席执行官胡厚崑表示，公司赢得了全球四分之一的5G商业合同。华为预计2018年公司总营收将超过1000亿美元。(Translation: Huawei claims to be the world leader in 5G commercial contracts. Huawei’s rotating CEO Hu Houkun said that the company has won a quarter of the world’s 5G commercial contracts. Huawei expects total revenue of the company to exceed 100 billion US dollars in 2018.)
After 3 detained Canadian Managers many Canadian and US Tech-Managers are warned not to visit China and vice versa Chinese Tech Corp. leaders North America. And there is also a Chinese nationalism rising. Foreign C-level Managers report that there are a kind of change how they being treated. A hot topic in some Expat Business Networks. rep10_2
Treat the Chinese mentality with rudeness and try to change China won't pay out. China’s success has been so spectacular that it already has become the most significant rival to the United States. China reacted already in their way: 中国规则。他们不喜欢西方那一套。所以制定了自己的版本。
Or as the New York Times published: China is refusing to fail! China don't like the Western mindset, so they developed their own Chinese rules. Just listen to a 2min cut of presidents Xi Jinping speech mentioning that reforms started 40 years ago will continue, published by SCMP.
If western politicians won't adapt we soon will have two different tech- and business worlds of East and West with an unhealthy competitive atmosphere. Fake News about China are already spreading out in Social Media. And Western managers live with their 5% growth mindset in retreat while Chinas growth is more than twice as fast.
A topic which will also reflect the Yachting, Real Estate and Travel industry, as first signs are seen on the horizon. 1851p
Growth comes out of a healthy competitive atmosphere, not from isolation produced by conflicts!@norbertomoreauNote: Isolation produced by closed minds is like a closed book; just a block of wood.

Serie: PR Trends 2019 - 2030
This is the 1st of our weekly series about PR Trends. As usual in a tweet-like micro post we focus only on ONE point of the series:
Quality beats Quantity! Two short points here:
- most Press Releases we receive are tremendous. Analyzing the reading time of the audience through server statistics you see a decreasing minutes of engagement, certainly through the flood of content being published every day.
- Social Media valued over years the frequency of posts over quality. This is also going to change!
ASK: Please feel invited to connect with me over SocialMedia (Linkedin, Instagram, Twitter) to talk about each weekly topic. 
Quantum computing may render Blockchain obsolete
Last year there was a unhackable videoconference between Austria and China. Even the video encryption was conventional, not quantum, but with quantum keys applied it was impossible to decrypt it. This made it the world’s very first quantum-encrypted intercontinental video link.
The basic units are Qubits, which unlike Bits can occupy a quantum state of 1 and 0 simultaneously. Linking them known as entanglement, quantum computers can generate exponential increases in processing power.
The man behind is Jian-Wei Pan (also known as China’s father of quantum), professor at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). Chinas president Xi Jinping has even talked publicly about quantum science producing a new industrial revolution.

WeChat unknown features (part 1)
Everyone in the western world doing business with Asia has the communication tool WeChat (微信，wēi xìn). It is one of most popular apps in China, a Tencent product and a Swiss knife, way far developed as the Western tools. Most of my contacts have it, but there are many unknown and useful functions. This week we go with one popular feature:
