Are you sure about 'Peak China?' Why China still has room to grow

BEIJING, April 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- A commentary by China's Diplomacy in the New Era (chinadiplomacy.org.cn) on the topic of "Peak China". Are you sure about 'Peak China?' Why China still has room to grow By Fabien Pacory The world economy is experiencing what the World Bank calls "the slowest half-decade of GDP growth in 30 years." As some of China's key growth catalysts weaken against this backdrop, a few stakeholders in the Western economy have become defeatist and pessimistic. Some believe that China will soon get caught in the "middle-income trap" or even experience the "Japanization" of its economy, characterized by low growth and deflation. Yet, a more subtle and nuanced look at China's economic aggregates and indicators will lead us to a different conclusion. Taking a step back for a new vista is crucial to gain greater clarity of the whole landscape. When we do this, it becomes clear to us that China's development is just entering a more mature phase. The pessimism about the Chinese market and economy is excessively undue. China's manufacturing activity rebounded in March, ending a five-month decline and adding evidence that China's industrial sector is gaining momentum for an economic recovery. The country's resilient economy still has room to grow. China's gross domestic product exceeded 126 trillion yuan ($17.51 trillion) in 2023, an increase of 5.2% over the previous year and outpacing the global growth rate of about 3%. The Chinese economy is expected to contribute more than 30% to world economic growth, remaining the largest engine of the world economy in 2024. Despite cyclical and structural challenges, China has introduced a series of policy measures to stay dynamic and resilient. The country aims for modernization through high-quality development, with science and technology progress emerging as a new growth driver. This approach has developed a "magnetic force" in the Chinese economy's "innovation field." The advancement of emerging and future-oriented industries, such as hydrogen power, pharma-tech, new materials, bio-manufacturing, and biotech, is set to not only enhance productivity in these industries but also boost and transform traditional sectors. This is creating a "new Chinese ecosystem of future factories" characterized by the integration of the knowledge economy, intelligence, and automation, steadily fostering new growth drivers. It represents a new pattern of "knowledge-industrialization" that is gradually taking shape. We should try to understand this new economic situation and see in it an innovation-driven model based on innovative practices and policies in China. A significant part of the new policy focus is on ensuring economic adaptation that will allow sustained long-term development. In China, there has recently been much discussion about the development of "new quality productive forces," even in the country's urbanization system. For example, China underwent the fastest pace of urbanization in human history over the last four decades, with urbanization rate going from 20% in 1981 to over 66% by the end of 2023. This process drove huge changes in economic productivity and created new demand for housing and infrastructure. The recent debate is whether China has already reached peak urbanization. The Chinese government has primarily advocated for a new approach to urbanization called "people-centered new urbanization," emphasizing quality over speed. This approach includes "urban-to-rural" development rather than just moving people from rural to urban areas. This will also boost new urban growth patterns and smart urban evolutions. China is exploring new areas for growth, moving to the next stage of its development, and is currently undergoing a major economic transformation from "growth at all costs" to "high-quality growth." This approach prioritizes people and human resources. Policymakers have placed great importance on unlocking "new quality productive forces" as a major policy shift, setting the stage for China's advancement toward high-quality growth, a transition to a digital economy, a consumption-driven growth model, and greener growth. Take, for example, the adjustment toward a consumption-driven growth model, China still holds many possibilities and solutions to unlock consumer potential. One strategy is to reduce its high savings rate, which is significantly higher than that of many countries. According to the OECD, China's savings rate was around 34-35% of disposable income, compared to 7-13% in other major economies. Boosting consumer confidence could free some of these savings up for consumption, catapulting China's economy to new heights. Aerial photo taken on April 26, 2020 shows power-generating windmill turbines in Weining County, southwest China's Guizhou Province. [Photo by Tao Liang/Xinhua] In Western media, discussions about consumption in China often highlight the perceived weakness of the domestic market. However, overlooking this vast and competitive domestic market is unwise. Regarding the domestic market and digital platforms, social shopping platforms are deploying new models that make the most of digital technologies and harness the power of Chinese consumers. Foreign brands and companies cannot disregard this challenging and competitive environment because there is a lot to learn here for the future of e-commerce. For example, in the e-commerce in China, the so-called "user-driven" innovation has sparked functions that grow and improve on their own, offering more than just economic benefits to meet changing desires of customers. Additionally, China's push toward greener technology and standards, aligned with its "dual-carbon" goal, sends a powerful message on sustainable digital development practices. In 2023, China's clean energy sector — encompassing electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries, and photovoltaic products, collectively referred to as the "new three" — significantly propelled the nation's economic growth. The sector contributed an unprecedented 11.4 trillion yuan, up 30% year on year, to China's GDP and captured the largest slice of investment growth. China's clean energy industry leads the global energy transition, accelerating the country's development of new growth drivers, aiding in achieving climate targets, and reshaping the global clean energy landscape. China also unveiled new steps to counteract a slowdown in foreign direct investment (FDI), including expanding market access. While foreign companies have been hesitant to invest, fluctuations in China's FDI inflows are common, as FDI was delayed during the pandemic and post-COVID period. However, evidence suggests that foreign corporations are not leaving China. In particular, the digital economy is a fertile ground for "new patterns of growth," with cooperative initiatives that can lead to shared prosperity and accelerated progress toward achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. China has become the new epicenter of the digital revolution, driven by massive investments in R&D to reshape the country's economic structure. With an acute awareness and vision, the country is stepping up its efforts to cultivate new productivity drivers, channeling considerable resources into artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, the 5G network, and specialized advanced manufacturing zones. These efforts are expected to yield more meaningful results within the broader framework of China's cutting-edge initiatives, including advances in biotechnology, nanotechnology and new materials. The convergence of these innovations can spur fruitful growth. This growth underscores China's robust innovations in digital technology, significantly contributing to the digital economy's high-quality development. The digital economy now exceeds 50 trillion yuan, accounting for more than 40% of its GDP. This achievement is bolstered by new science and technology clusters, with China boasting more than 20 of the world's top 100 clusters, including Shenzhen-Hong Kong-Guangzhou, Beijing, and Shanghai-Suzhou, which are ranked second, fourth, and fifth respectively. Over the past four years, China has invested in new types of applied research and experimental development with a multi-sectoral approach. China could emerge stronger in the coming years with new generations of solutions, improved services, and consumer products featuring highly innovative specificities. This is already evident in the field of pharmaceutical research and drug development process, where some clusters are advancing different processes of experimental development and knowledge management. To sum up, China's transition to an innovation-driven economy reflects its far-reaching strengths across all angles of the innovation ecosystem, marking a significant chapter in the country's enduring legacy of management practices, creativity, and invention, with new spatial patterns of development in multi-sector growth models. China is a country with significant vitality and the ability to make the right adjustments. "Peak China" is nothing but a distorted and misleading narrative; it's certainly premature to talk about a "peak."

New research reveals paradigm shift in customer experience

Data from Infobip shows impact of conversational customer experiences and GenAI in 2023 KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, April 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- New research from global cloud communications platform Infobip reveals how conversational customer experiences and generative AI developments have created a long-lasting impact for how people and brands interact. Infobip analyzed more than 473 billion digital communications interactions on its platform in 2023 between businesses and consumers to identify the latest global business messaging trends. Infobip Messaging Trends 2024 As consumers look for a deeper connection with the brands they buy from, the conversational messaging channels are seeing the fastest growth. In 2023, Infobip recorded a 137% increase in mobile app messages compared to 2022, a 73% rise in social media messages, and a 63% increase in chat app messages. Conversational experiences are increasing throughout the customer journey, whether for marketing, commerce, or support. Conversational support  Whether a person is dealing with a human agent, a chatbot, or a combination of the two, conversational support provides an effective, efficient, and positive experience. WhatsApp remains the primary channel brands use for conversational support, where businesses send 90% of support messages over the chat app. However, brands are beginning to diversify their channel mix, leveraging chat apps in specific regions. For instance, Infobip has recorded increases of 541%, 146%, and 284% in Messenger, Viber, and Line, respectively. Brands are now using conversational AI to provide personalized customer service and support. For instance, Megi Health Platform uses a virtual assistant on WhatsApp to help improve the patient experience. Meanwhile, insurance firm LAQO uses our Azure OpenAI partnership to provide a fast, 24/7 and personal service. Conversational marketing The two-way exchange of information is the basis for conversational marketing, and brands are ramping up their efforts to meet customers on the channels they use with their family and friends. Overall, the data shows a 29% increase in mobile app messaging for marketing in 2023 compared to 2022. WhatsApp remains the top digital channel for conversational marketing in absolute numbers, driven by new features that enable customers to start and complete a purchase in a single WhatsApp chat window. Infobip is also seeing significant increases in other messaging apps such as Telegram, Line, Viber, and Messenger. More specifically, WhatsApp messages increased by 421% in Asia Pacific in 2023, while mobile app messaging increased by 146% in the Middle East and North Africa and by 18 times in North America. Meanwhile, RCS Business Messaging is an emerging channel for conversational marketing. Ivan Ostojić, Chief Business Officer at Infobip, said: "Our data shows how conversational experiences are rapidly spreading across the globe as businesses roll out marketing, sales, and support use cases. Where 2022 revealed a spike in omnichannel adoption when brands recognized the importance of connecting with their customers on their preferred channel, 2023 shows how brands are perfecting the end-to-end customer journey. Customers can now seamlessly progress through a journey within a single conversational thread on a chat app or RCS. With the emergence of interactive AI, we expect brands to incorporate a federation of different chatbots and AI algorithms working together to trigger actions at the ideal points during the customer journey. In the next year, we foresee the widespread adoption in customer service, marketing and sale automation, and for operational use cases like scheduling deliveries and managing payments." Regional difference With brands adopting conversational experiences globally, there are some regional differences: Africa: conversational channels gain traction with social media messages increasing nearly 2.5 times Asia Pacific: strong growth in mobile app messaging, with WhatsApp increasing by four times Europe: rapid growth for RCS, as interactions increase by 11 times Latin America: strong growth in mobile app messaging, with Viber increasing by more than 2.5 times Middle East North Africa: rapid adoption of conversational channels, as voice and video interactions double North America: exponential growth in rich messaging, with RCS interactions increasing by 50 times The changing role of SMS Infobip's data from 2023 shows that SMS remains an important channel for business communication, but usage is changing where SMS is now being used alongside chat apps. Across all industries, brands most commonly use SMS with WhatsApp, with 25% of businesses choosing this combination. Moreover, where businesses and brands use two channels, SMS is one of the two options in 63% of cases.

LinkShadow is positioned as a Representative Vendor in the 2024 Gartner® Market Guide for Network Detection and Response (NDR)

ATHENS, Georgia, April 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- LinkShadow, a global leader in intelligent Network Detection and Response (NDR) has been recognized in the Gartner 2024 Market Guide for NDR solution. This insightful Gartner Report elaborates on how NDR can amplify infrastructure security by seamlessly integrating with various technologies such as SOAR, SIEM, EDR, MDR and numerous others. LinkShadow is positioned as a Representative Vendor in the 2024 Gartner® Market Guide for Network Detection and Response (NDR)   As per Gartner, "The network detection and response market continues to grow and expand to hybrid network scenarios with IaaS deployment. Security and risk management leaders should reprioritize NDR as a key provider of AI analytics in the context of more automated security operations assistants."  Gartner also recommends that "enterprises should strongly consider NDR solutions to complement signature-based network security tools and network sandboxes. Many Gartner clients have reported that NDR tools have detected suspicious network traffic that other perimeter security tools had missed." Commenting on this, Fadi Sharaf, Regional Sales Director, LinkShadow, said: "We believe this Gartner recognition strengthens LinkShadow's positioning in the NDR domain. Our aim is to extend the robust LinkShadow NDR capability to enterprises and empower them to stay ahead of the threat curve, taking a proactive approach to safeguard their sensitive assets." According to Gartner, "Despite strong competition from other platforms, NDR global market revenue continues to grow double digit, registering an increase of 19% for the period 1Q23 through 3Q23, year over year. When the NDR market was nascent, it was composed of a mix of pure-play startups and network monitoring companies expanding to security use cases. As the market grows, it is attracting more and more large platform providers." Gartner Key Findings: Network detection and response (NDR) is commonly used as a complementary detection and response technology as part of a broader arsenal of security operations center (SOC) tools. The emergence of "AI-augmented" analytics overlays, in the form of SOC assistants, will benefit the NDR market as a useful source of insights for aggregated and summarized views. A handful of NDR vendors capture most of the attention in the market. Higher maturity organizations, often with more specialized detection use cases, often mix these well-known vendors with emerging local players in their shortlists. Most organizations value the response capabilities during their NDR provide evaluations, but only deploy very narrowly automated responses past the pilot phase. Gartner Recommendations: Start small. Implement NDR to detect abnormal behaviors and provide investigation capabilities for post breach activity, extending incrementally across different types of networks. Identify how NDR's behavior-based detections, once tuned, might augment your SOCability to respond to incidents faster and more accurately. Compare NDR vendors by defining rationalized metrics and evaluating how these NDR tools positively impact threat detection and incident response. Roll out automated response progressively, based on your existing incident response SLA for the type of incident and on the false positive rate of the detection engines.

The report details the company's key impacts across its people, product, planet, and net-zero measures.
