Dear Patrons and friends of China BIG Idea,

We have been bringing to you constant developments following the recent executive orders to ban TikTok and WeChat from the US.

In observing recent developments, we saw rising concerns from the best Chinese technology companies on globalization. This may cause further reorientation, perhaps even a pause, of their globalization strategies. These tech companies are not SOEs and they should rightfully respond to political risk adjustments.

We would like to leave these two questions for your thoughts:

  1. Should Chinese tech companies continue to globalize?

  2. What would be the best strategic advice to Tencent or Bytedance, and all the Chinese tech up-and-comers?

Please do subscribe with us to be briefed on ByteDance and Tencent’s global investment lineup, corporate strategies, financials, and more from the past two weeks.



Have a great weekend!
