|our species depends on urgently|
improving understanding of peoples across hemispheres- none more so than east-west; two thirds of humans live on the continent of asia with a few more per cent of the world's population living in what have emerged as the extraordinary productive hi-tech islands - japan, taiwan , hk, singapore. by the late 19th century all of the people on the asian continent had been colonised or had their trading systems blocked by western empires- primarly britain's. given this, we find it extraordinary valuable to study how 3 people from the orient travelled to the west and went on to change both hemispheres: gandhi
below we look at how jack ma's first trip to the usa - seattle 1995 changed the world. he was then his city hangzhou's most popular english teacher- amazon's launch of ecommerce he returned to china to form a network with energetic youth and extraordinary investors including japan's hi tech billionnaire masa son and the silicon valley founder of yahoo jerry yang- how can ecommerce and efinance create the most jobs when china's web infrasucture arrives-?
Having become one of the world's biggest marketmakers, ma was tech city host of china's g20 2016 and at the un he was invited to become worldwide youth jobs adviser;in 2017 he announced that from 2019 september he would return full time to education- according to ma he couldnt see how to impact the 4 most vital social markets with commerce- this web tracks his progress as a return to full time education and his goal of celebrating how the sdg generation can change education , health, green markets, sports and arts markets
unlike ma, gandhi and abed travelled to britain in their teens - gandhi to study law in 1880s, abed to study engineering and shipping at glasgow uni of 1950s.--all three changed the livelihoods and sustainability of hundreds of millions of people in the race to end systemic poverty. unlike gandhi, graduate abed's 10 year spent ascending to become regional ceo of royal dutch shell gave him the perfect mix of engineering and admin experience to empower the poorest to nation build

What is worth noting here, is the powerful feature of live broadcast available within Taobao. The live stream option allows online shop owners to engage customers, allowing them to participate in live auctions or demonstrations of various products being sold. Users are free to interact with store owners by typing through the chat displayed on the bottom of the livestream. Thanks to these live commercials, the MAU skyrocketed, bringing about a 100 percent increase over the year. The virtuous cycle brought about by live broadcasts and short clips further drove purchases and increase annual active consumers.
Furthermore, cross-border and international retail continued to show promising growth as well. Net revenue gained from international e-commerce retail amounted to 4,316 million yuan in the quarter ending on June 30, 2018. This was yet another incredible 64 percent year-on-year growth.
Daniel Zhang, CEO of the Alibaba Group says that, “Alibaba had another excellent quarter, with significant user growth and even more robust engagement across our growing ecosystem.”
Zhang also indicates that Alibaba will continue to tap into big markets beyond e-commerce with digital entertainment and local services that will provide more value and additional choices to consumers along the consumption continuum.

PitchBook, a global data research institution based in the Silicon Valley, names its Unicorn Class of 2017. In 2017, 57 start-ups were valued at more than $1 billion, and their total value was as high as $116 billion. Eighteen Chinese enterprises were on the list, and 10 were among the top 20. Toutiao, Mobike and VIPKID are among the 10 companies.
PitchBook is one of the most authoritative data statistics institutions in the world, mainly engaged in global enterprise data survey, analysis, investment data and recommendations. According to Pitch Book, the annual “unicorns” generally refer to unlisted companies that are valued at more than $1 billion and have huge potential for development.
Founded in 2012, the $20 billion Toutiao was at the top of the list. Toutiao provides search, personalized information, music, movies and games based on data mining, user location and interest. This creates a huge traffic entrance. So far, Toutiao has 600 million active users. The number of daily active users is 120 million.
Mobike and ofo ranked eighth and ninth respectively. By using intelligent rental and return technology and geo-positioning, Mobike has entered more than 180 cities in nine countries around the world in less than two years. Mobike has more than 200 million registered users, and is the shining example of sharing economy.
It is worth mentioning that VIPKID, an online English platform for children, has also been nominated for the annual “unicorns” list, making it the only listed Chinese education company. In less than four years, with the help of the Internet technology and artificial intelligence, VIPKID successfully connected more than 30,000 teachers in North America with 200,000 Chinese children who want to learn English. VIPKID creates a sharing model in global education resources, and provides personalized teaching with quality education resources. VIPKID also launched Lingo Bus, an online Chinese learning platform, in August 2017 as an important force for promoting Chinese cultural output.
In addition to famous unicorns like Toutiao, Mobike, ofo and VIPKID, several Chinese companies, such as Lianjia, NIO, Sense Time, BAIC BJEV, souche.com and UR Work, were among the global Rop 20. These companies cover information, travel, real estate, education, artificial intelligence and other fields, and have become strong innovators in China.
