What Business Leaders Need To Know Regarding Hong Kong District Council Election Results (yes it probably will impact your business)

Elections in Hong Kong have just given a major win to pro-democracy supporters. There are many other challenges in China right now. Most of the world has woken up to their never ending tactics of stealing intellectual property, hacking systems for gain, abusing trade agreements, manipulating currency, illegally claiming territory etc. The final resolution of trade disputes is far from over, and the current situation is hurting their economy. Once the trade disputes are resolved, it is hard to believe their economy will return to its previous high growth.  Additionally, for over a year now there have been horrible stories of concentration camps being used for millions of Muslims (most in the Northwest province of Xinjiang) and cultural genocide of Uyghurs. More data is leaking out on the scale of this atrocity, which is shocking.

And, on top of all this, Hong Kong citizens are not giving up on their goals for self determination. The more that people in China learn of what is going ton in Hong Kong, the harder it will be on the Communists.

Meanwhile, there are continuing trade tensions and a tech conflict underway.

What does all this mean for your business strategy? Our 10 considerations are in this report, written for OODA Members.
