Top Country of Wine in China

Today I introduce to you the favorite country for Wine for Chinese

China, which is expected to become the second largest wine market in the world by 2020, has a strong appetite for imported wines that have grown outside of France’s comfort zones for lesser-known Georgian and South African wines.

Wine

By 2020, the country is expected to consume 94 million cases, or 72% of global wine growth, according to a joint report by Vinexpo and IWSR. The share of domestic wines on the continental market has gradually decreased due to the growing interest in imported wines, whose current market share is around 30%. source http://www.zhongguo-wine.com/

254 million liters of bottled wine valued at about $ 1.146 billion

In the first half of the year, the country imported

  1. 254 million liters of bottled wine valued
  2. at about $ 1.146 billion,
  3. an increase of 13.9% in volume and 3.34% in value over the same period. period of last year.

Wine need Marketing in China

French wines are still at the top of the pack, but the best-performing New World countries, notably Australia and Chile, with their unique advantage of a free trade agreement with China, are climbing fast and steadily in the ranking.

 

By 2020, China is expected to surpass the UK to become the world’s second most valuable wine market after the US.

This will make China a main driver for the global wine market shift as consumption growth in the next few years will be mainly coming from China-led Asia pacific countries and the US, Guillaume Deglise, CEO of Vinexpo said, citing findings from a study conducted by Vinexpo with IWSR for the global wine and spirits market overview from 2016 to 2020.

“Clearly there are two countries that are really driving the wine consumption, which are USA and China,” stated Deglise. Wine consumption in the US is expected to reach US$38.6 billion by 2020, up from US$34.5 billion in 2016. While in China, wine consumption will climb by 39.8% to US$21.7 billion compared with US $15.5 billion worth of wines drunk in 2016.

“But growth is on very different profile. So we need to go a little deeper. We expect China to actually consume 94 million cases in 2020, up from 52.7 million cases, which is 79% growth, representing 72% of worldwide wine growth,” he continued, noting that China is not yet a strong wine producing country, which means imported wines will play an increasing role in domestic market.“USA is different, because US is also a very strong producing country, but basically that won’t be enough for the whole market. They need to import more wines to meet the demand, so we expect an additional 3.8 million cases for the next few years,” Deglise added.

source https://www.cnbc.com/2017/10/11/china-travel-tourists-embrace-less-conventional-locations-and-tailor-made-trips.html

Last week 6 million Chinese tourists traveled abroad during a national holiday, and that meant large payments for traditional tourist destinations, such as London or Paris. But, increasingly, travelers from China are taking their families – and their money – to less conventional places.

 

700 million Chinese travellers

In all, more than 700 million in China traveled during the week of Gold Week from October 1 to October 8, according to the government. And while the couple of millions of tourists who took the week abroad mostly visited Asia’s longtime favorites, there are indications that the new countries are capturing their attentions.

That is, four of the five most popular international destinations among Chinese tourists during the eight-day vacation in Asia, according to Trivago travel booking platform. These places include Hong Kong, Tokyo, Osaka and Bangkok, with Paris the only European city in the top five.

‘New Hot Countries’

Forget about France, UK and so on…

In addition to these pillars, tourists from the continent bitten by the insect travel are also increasingly adventurous. Some are looking further afield for their holiday vacations and others who avoid traditional tour packages in favor of self-planned trips.

These were the “hot new places” that saw more than 50 percent growth in the number of tourist bookings this year, according to Ctrip, one of the largest travel service providers in China. Expedia-owned Trivago also mentioned similar trends:

Accompanying the growing desire to visit their destinations in increasing demand for more holiday experiences, market research shows.

TailorMade & Healthy Trip

Tailor made travel services quickly become a custom among travelers looking to escape cookie-cutter vacation packages. According to Ctrip, Healthy trip children looking to go on vacation include “avoiding large crowds”, “no shopping” and private travel guides.

When travelers visit places that others do not have, they can get a “social seal,” which has become a trend among the middle class, according to Ben Cavender, director of the China Market Research Group.

“Increasingly, we are seeing China’s well-targeted travel destinations difficult to achieve by boasting rights and WeChat images show the state somewhere exotic

+66% Chinese Tourists to Israel

According to China Daily, Israel is becoming a Popular Country for Chinese travellers.

Cooperation With Chinese Governement

Israel is interested in improving cooperation with China to attract more Chinese tourists to the Jewish nation, a senior Israeli tourism official told Xinhua in a recent interview.

Amir Halevi, director general of the Ministry of Tourism, praised the growing tourism between Israel and China for serving as a “cultural bridge between the two countries.”

“Incoming tourism from China makes a significant and growing contribution to the Israeli economy, particularly in the hotel and hospitality industries, attractions and shops,” Halevi said.

Israel continues its cooperation with Chinese partners to take advantage of the Chinese market, he promised.

Recent years have witnessed a sharp increase in the number of Chinese tourists visiting Israel.

64,600 Chinese tourists in Israel

A total of 64,600 Chinese tourists have visited Israel in the first seven months of 2017, 66 percent more than in the same period last year and 130 percent since 2015, according to the Israeli Ministry of Tourism, which expects the number of Chinese tourists to Israel reach 100,000 in 2017.

Many Chinese tourists perceive Israel as a mysterious and exotic destination, attracted by, among other things, Jewish culture, the sacred site of three great religions, Israel’s technological innovation and the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth.

There are also many Chinese business delegations visiting Israel each year to learn more about Israel’s technological innovation and seek collaboration or alliances with its Israeli counterparts in many areas, he said.

A series of direct flights from China to Israel have helped boost the influx of Chinese tourists to the Jewish state.

Israeli Airline

The Israeli airline is located in Tel Aviv and the cities of Beijing and Hong Kong, while Hainan Airlines from China operates flights from Beijing and Shanghai to Tel Aviv. In addition, Cathay Pacific Airways offers flights from Hong Kong to Tel Aviv.

The policy that Israel offers 10-year multiple-entry visas to Chinese is also an important factor in attracting more Chinese tourists to Israel, according to Halevi.

Halevi said his ministry spared no effort to build Israel’s tourism brand for Chinese tourists.

It has improved its tourist infrastructure to meet the specific needs of Chinese travelers, such as employing more Chinese speaking tour guides, and increasing signage and tourism translated into Chinese.

In the recent visit to China by Israeli tourism minister Yariv Levin, Halevi said that this led to a better understanding in the Israeli tourism ministry and the main players in the Chinese tourism industry.

“We are working to promote Israel as a tourist destination and an insurance and a good example of how to reach a long term,” Halevi said.

There are many opportunities to enhance collaboration between Israel and China, “not only commercially but also a governmental level to promote bilateral tourism,” he added.

Baidu & Digital Marketing

Called Baidu Access, the company’s new digital consulting and marketing service was launched in Thailand as the first country in Southeast Asia, said Paul Chen, CEO of Baidu Thailand.

Chinese Tourists in Thailand… 9.5Millions

Thai brands and companies have also targeted Chinese travelers, so Baidu decided to establish a new equipment for service late last year.

In the first three months of 2017, Baidu Acceso’s digital marketing targets hotels and travel. Soon it will expand to banks, telecommunications, restaurants, department stores, spas, consumer goods, cosmetics, medicines and snacks.

“The Chinese choose Thailand as their first tourist destination because of a variety of points of interest, geographic location, affordable prices and Thai friendship,” said Patcharaporn Sirisapwong, marketing and public relations manager for Baidu Thailand.

Chinese tourists spend 30,000-40,000 baht per person (excluding airfare) when visiting Thailand, he said. The new services of the company will allow Thai companies to take advantage of potential market opportunities.

“Local businesses should target Chinese users because they have a higher purchasing power compared to tourists from other parts of the world where economies are declining,” said Ms. Patcharaporn

Baidu Search Engine

Baidu’s search engine is the number one in China and one of the world’s top four. In China, at least 95% of Internet users use the Baidu search engine.

Ms Patcharaporn said that Thai companies have limited access to the Chinese market because of language and cultural barriers.

Baidu & Thai Companies

Baidu can provide Thai companies better access to the market with online communities stories like web boards, social networks and chat platforms, he said.

Baidu also has 600-700 partners known as key opinion leaders (KOLs) – influential public figures who are perceived as field experts and are well-informed on many issues.

KOLS are a powerful marketing tool for brands because the Chinese prefer advertising that does not look like advertising, said Ms. Patcharaporn

She said that Baidu Access has more than 100 customers after nine months operating in Thailand.

Shanghai International High School my Experience

We were hesitant to send him to any Chinese school like most of Expat, so we choose an international School in Shanghai.

We Choose this Shanghai International school because it is perceived as a very “hard” school – a lot of homework .

Now that he’s been there for one and a half years, here are our thoughts:

1) A fair amount of homework. On normal days, if he concentrates, he can wrap up his daily homework in an hour or so. If he gets up and down (usually the case) and does not focus, it takes up to two hours. If there is Chinese composition, it will take much more than two hours. On days before a Chinese test, he can be doing homework all the way until 9:30 pm or 10pm. It can get quite depressing to see your kid crying at night because there’s just too much work to complete. I have to say that this is not happen often but still …

Also, when asked about scouts about having 20mins of outdoor playtime, my son said, “I have too much homework to complete to play outside” !!! So we usually allocate weekends fully to play.

British Style !

2) The cirriculum is based on the British system and for us, we feel the English, Math and Science / Social Studies subjects are relatively easy. We have a hard time with the Chinese. My son is in the native Chinese class (90% of the class takes native English, while about 50% is in Higher Chinese) and probably has the lowest score in class. We have a Chinese tutor twice a week but he is still not at the same standard as the other kids.

About the Teachers

3) Teachers are pretty dedicated. They are on the class wechat and give very regular updates to parents. You can approach them freely with questions and they will answer very quickly. The homeroom teacher is Chinese and they have a foreign teacher attached to the class. Usually the Chinese teacher will teach Chinese, Math, moral lessons, etc., while the English teacher oversees the English and Science / Social Science and sometimes art / music.

Shanghai international high school

4) The difference with Chinese school is that Administration is very European -style – little to no consultation with parents. Most communication mainly in Chinese.

5) Not many extra-circulars for the lower grades. BritishShcool a real international school, so we do not get invited to participate in many school sporting tournaments, and so on.

6) Cohort is overwhelmingly Asian. I think a good 60-70% of children attending the lower grades of british style are kidding their parents are Chinese but with a foreign passport. I.e. Parents were born and bred in China but may have spent a fair amount of time overseas and gained another citizenship, OR their kids were born abroad. We like this – since we are living in China, we would like to make Chinese friends, but if you are looking for a very diverse, international mix, this school is not for you. The other kids come from Hong Kong, Taiwan, UK Europe…

7) Fair amount of outdoor play time during the school day – PE at a time and get to play outside.

8) Facilities are of course not as good as some of the international schools but the classrooms are bright and cheery.

If you are considering this school for your child, you need to help them with homework and tests / exams, you’ll also have a lot of extra-cirricular activities on the weekends And keep a fair amount of time for de-stressing and just playing.

We have been working for a couple of years now and have been working for a long time.

Thank you Maggie for this Explanation.

Chinese Angel is giving sexual fulfillment to the Disabled

Taiwanese NGO ‘Hand Angels’ is giving sexual fulfillment to the debilitated

Disability and Sexuality is an entangled issue. A little Non-Governmental Organization called “Hand Angels” in Taipei is taking care of an issue that numerous capable individuals may never consider. The volunteers are giving Sexual administrations to the seriously Disabled. A little Taiwanese NGO is giving its extremely Disabled customers with an extraordinary sort of assistance

The 52-year-old originator, Vincent, created polio three months after he figured out how to walk. He said that he began up the association in view of his own troublesome life travel. He told BBC in a meeting: “At whatever point I see Disabled individuals like me, I feel for them. I see myself in them.”

Sex is progressively described as a privilege in China

While many created nations have begun focusing on Sexual needs of the Disabled, Sex is progressively described as a privilege everybody ought to have the capacity to appreciate. There are as of now numerous associations giving Sexual administrations to seriously Disabled individuals in some western nations and Japan.

Chinese girl

In the Netherlands, there are even Sex endowments for the Disabled. With prostitution sanctioned in the nation, the legislature is boosting the private attempts of its Disabled nationals. (very different of that)

Beijing VS Hand Angel

The administration from the Hand Angels is just given to the individuals who hold an extraordinary review Disability card, with an aggregate of three sessions accessible for nothing. The beneficiaries need to round out the application on the web and they can apply for both male and female volunteers to complete the administration, and a Hand Angel will contact the beneficiary and help them jerk off and achieve climax, with every session enduring a hour and a half.

Chinese Hand

The Group, “Hand Angels,” was established by Vincent, a moderately aged man who created polio when he was a newborn child. On Social Media, while Vincent still has the utilization of his hands, the experience made him understand that others don’t, thus have no chance to get of fulfilling their physical and enthusiastic needs. Vincent told the BBC that the acknowledgment propelled him to build up his Group of volunteers that give Sexual administrations to the Disabled. (other buzz)

The Group even figured out how to catch a suitable URL: http://www.handjobtw.org/

While the session itself keeps going just a hour and a half or so – “from touching the individual to helping them achieve climax,” Vincent says – six months of arranging and gatherings go into the experience previously.

Sex volunteers

One of the Group’s Sex volunteers, Daan, said that he goes into the sessions as if he seemed to be “going for a one night remain with a young lady I met on the web.” Daan said that his customer, a lady named Mei Nu, was amazingly apprehensive in light of the fact that she had never been exposed before anybody before aside from her parental figures.

Digital Buzz VS critics

Obviously, some have blamed the Group for prostitution. In any case, the Hand Angels trust that they are giving an important web support of a fragment of the populace that has been totally desexualized, however has an indistinguishable needs and longings from every other person.

 

What do you think? Good or bad action …
