Newsletter: UK’s reports clampdown in Hong Kong

Dear Global Business Enthusiast,

Michael Michelini (@michelini) here. You’re getting this email because you requested my periodic thoughts on international business from Hong Kong.

[Edit: Actually, it’s possible that you’ve never gotten an email from me. Somebody might have just given you the link to this page, which is an online archive of an email that I sent to folks who had asked for it. If you’d like to get articles like this in your inbox, totally free, about once a week or two, give me your email address.]

This week I have been cooped up working at the Shenzhen studio (home office) – skipped the cross-border travels to Hong Kong for once.

We have quite a few amazing women in the Global From Asia team, and yesterday was International Women’s Day – make sure to thank those women in your life today if you forgot!

Are we worried Hong Kong’s ports are shrinking? Seems those China free trade zones are really taking a cut – but HK doesn’t seem to be too worried?

Finally, an official from China is actually saying to loosen up the GFW (Chinese Great Fire Wall). Doubt it will have any effect to be honest.

And another one from Andre – these Chinese bikes are getting international coverage – as they are being piled up and confiscated by security guards and more. Someone told me that this whole bike sharing movement will show how the Chinese culture in today’s world will react and has adapted.

Do we need to have kids go to school anymore? I’m not sure anymore, and I am trying to convince my wife to have Miles and Maggie (my kids) skip it – today we have Jason Green on the show who traveled the US in his mom’s hippie van and had no problem in his life or career – actually he says it helped him!

We have a guest post – talking about invoices for international compared to domestic businesses.
