"chinese financial meltdown fears"

"chinese debt levels is 282% of its GDP"

At 28billion USD ,China's debt levels have surged 

As a proportion of GDP chinese debt accelerated moderately from the turn of the century. In 2007, it was 121% of GDP. Today it's more than twice that — 282%




After an indifferent 2015, Global markets started off terribly, with china sending shock waves across the world  and setting global stock markets into a panic mode .And many believe that china  could get even worse and lead the world into another financial crisis. George Soros has already "predicted that china will set up a repeat of 2008. And if that was not enough this recent chart from  HSBC warns that   China could be about to go into full-blown "crisis" mode.

China is about to get caught up in a death spiral of falling demand and mountains of debt  which will mean a meltdown and a disaster for the rest of the world. The Caixin Purchasing Managers Index for manufacturing, which measures economic activity, came in at 48.2. Anything below 50 signals contraction and last week's  reading marks the 10th straight month China's industry has shrunk.

These charts from Businessinsider shows  3 reasons why global markets are panicking .China's total debt is now about $28 trillion, larger than that of the United States or Germany,

"global top 25 telecom  brands  "
source : brandfinance

North America remains top by total brand value, up 13% year-on-year, driven by the improving US economy and increases to the value of some major brands following significant M&As. Asia is the fastest growing region, up 18% ($30bn). Chinese brands lead the way benefitting from an expanding customer base and government support. Middle Eastern brands grew almost as quickly, by 16% MOBILE is the current leader in the chinese market.By the end of 2014 China Mobile 4G customer base exceeded 100 million .SingTel is a pioneer in ramping up commercial 4G mobile services in Singapore


The key growth area for telecom carriers is data. Customers no longer see high speed data traffic as an additional service, but rather as a necessity. Developing a profitable and efficient 4G mobile network is a challenge that only a small number of telecoms worldwide have addressed successfully. The huge amount of funding required for Capital Expenditure has grown debt levels of some carriers, consequently leading to instability and financial difficulties. Different licences needed and slow 4G mobile spectrum auctions further impede telecoms efforts in developing their new generation mobile networks.

state of apparel industry in china : infographic



"chinese apparel industry : trends and stats"
many of the global brands that are in China have a small footprint. For instance, Zara has roughly 70 stores in China, Benetton has about 25, and Gap has 5, compared with more than 1,000 stores each in their home markets in Europe or North America. And many globally or regionally popular brands, such as Topshop, J. Crew, and Ann Taylor, have yet to open a store in the country. By contrast, consider the brands that have achieved early success in China. Many may be a surprise. Nike and adidas each has approximately 6,000 stores in China, and clothing company Bestseller has more than 4,000. Chinese sports brands Li Ning and Anta each has roughly 7,000 stores, while local casual clothing brands Metersbonwe and Semir have more than 3,000 stores each. Almost all of these are single-brand stores.
