Share Sale

The turmoil that’s gripped Hong Kong for almost half a year didn’t stop Alibaba from moving forward with an enormous share sale this week. The Chinese e-commerce giant raised about $11 billion in Hong Kong’s largest listing since 2010. It could swell Alibaba’s cash pile to $44 billion, about twice as much as fellow Chinese tech titan Tencent has. Some of the places that money could go include investing to grow the company’s business in Southeast Asia or to bolster its efforts in technologies such as Artificial Intelligence.

‘Foothills of a Cold War’

Trade tensions, a shaky outlook for the world economy and the risk of a catastrophic conflict dominated discussions on the first day of the Bloomberg New Economy Forum in Beijing. Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said the U.S. and China were in the “foothills of a Cold War,” and warned that the conflict could be worse than World War I if left to run unconstrained. Microsoft Corp. founder Bill Gates said he was “more passionate about the value of engagement than ever” and worried about those promoting a U.S.-China decoupling. He didn’t see how such bifurcation would be feasible in the technology sphere, where research is published across geographical boundaries. “AI is very hard to put back in the bottle,” Gates said. The New Economy Forum is being organized by Bloomberg Media Group, a division of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.

i am certain hong kong will have a brilliant future provided

1 hong kong people need to show they can stop -your language/dialogues vital for faculitraing that

2 collect positive ideas on what youth want to explore , do , connect futures around- if there is one platform where all positive ideas can be shared thats best

(when i say youth by all means others parts of society can form parallel collections but the education change jack ma and yidan prize are talking about must involve youth)
assume positive ideas are collected, then in part officials can share them with her beijing channels but in part we can get networks like aiib (i met previous ifc world bank chinese man at aiib summit- he's back in hong kong),  alibaba and ten cent and all there partners to help at least with those ideas that fit what their futures

(my own view is that  belt road mapping needed across every continent and ocean - not just build roads but cultural bridges or sharing solutions networks to community challenge like going green (there david attenborough bbc have said they want to help anywhere interested) or health (there we can make quite a long list) hong kong one of few spaces everyone can map and feel culturally uncluded as long as we get back to safe hing kong

there is a small group of dc based people who love china whom i already discuss parallel challenge with as it applies to all china cities - 
tell me if  you would like me to introduce you to these 3 people now - meanwhile i will try and talk to some ten cent people kin hing kong 

i dont understand partisan politicians anywhere - however i do decode global brand messages - thats my profession- trump has deliberately used hate to divide and conquer places across asia - so all of above will be different if he goes and much harder if he stays but hong kong and singapore are places where the whole world needs positive tech, youth identity and community building to be celebrated with culturally diverse joy

i leave for hong kong tuesday 26 oct and will be there 5 full days : thursday through monday inclusive - originally my main reason to celebrate www.yidanprize.org as hong kong is the world epicentre of edutech laureates

there is a lot from bloomberg summit in hong kong which also matches  ost of the above- imo both bloomberg and schwarzman scholarships are dynamics hong kong should demand maximum participation in wherever friends of hong can- my fathers work was appreciated by japanese emperor so up to the olympics i am trying also to connect all asians with japan wherever opportunities like http://www.musicforsdgs.com present
