Huawei founder issues mea culpa for trademark controversy
4th February 2021

 Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei apologized for using the company to trademark names associated with his daughter Annabel Yao, who is breaking into show business.

Ren said he felt compelled to file the trademark application to prevent others from doing so with malicious intent on Huawei's internal online community, reported Tech Planet, a media outlet focusing on tech and emerging industries.
He said that under Chinese law, the application must be filed by a company or an individual with a business license, which Yao doesn't have yet. Ren authorized Huawei’s intellectual property department to file the registration and then transfer it to Yao’s studio, the report said.
Yao would cover all the expenses, according to the report.
Ren apologized for using the company for personal purposes, the report said.
Public records show on January 25 Huawei filed to trademark 姚安娜 (her stage name), 姚思为 (her real name), YAO ANNA, YAO SIWEI and Annabel Yao in categories related to clothing, footwear, watches and jewellery, food, education, entertainment, mechanical equipment and scientific instruments. The registration is still being processed.
The 23-year-old's foray into the entertainment industry came via a self-promoting documentary released on January 14, which stirred up controversy as her privileged background has made her a target for criticism.
The music video for her first song “Backfire” debuted on January 18, drawing mixed reviews.

Global business travel to grow 21% in 2021, trade group forecasts
3rd February 2021

 Business travel spending is forecast to grow 21 percent this year worldwide, helped by the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, but will not recover to pre-pandemic levels until the middle of the decade, a business travel association said yesterday.

Spending on business travel is projected to rise to US$842 billion in 2021, according to the Global Business Travel Association’s BTI Outlook, after falling 52 percent in 2020 to US$694 billion due to the pandemic.
After a decade of steady annual growth, business travel is expected to show losses in 2020 that are 10 times greater than the declines after the September 11, 2001, attacks or the 2008 recession, GBTA said.
Despite the expected growth in travel in 2021, uncertainty around vaccination progress and United States President Joe Biden’s policies can affect the recovery.
“The continued rollout of the vaccine will be central to recovery globally, as will decisions the new Biden Administration makes regarding global trade and border and quarantine policies,” said Dave Hilfman, GBTA’s interim executive director in a statement.
As US airlines also expect, the group said businesses are likely to spend more on travel that cannot be duplicated with online meetings such as sales calls and service trips.
The proportion of companies’ travel budget spent on internal meetings is estimated to decline 6 percent, compared to 2019.
By the end of 2024, business travel spending is projected to reach about US$1.4 trillion, nearly tying the 2019 pre-pandemic revenue peak of US$1.43 trillion, the group said. It projects a full recovery in 2025.

Ministry further slashes forecast for travel season
29th January 2021

 China’s Ministry of Transport on Thursday cut its forecast of passenger flow for the 2021 Spring Festival travel season as the country has adopted strict anti-epidemic measures to curb COVID-19 spread.

The 40-day travel peak, which started on Thursday, is expected to see around 1.15 billion passenger trips, marking a drop of more than 20 percent year on year and a plunge of over 60 percent from the level in 2019, ministry spokesperson Wu Chungeng told a press conference.
The ministry previously projected China to see 1.7 billion passenger trips during the period. However, it now expects the actual numbers to be much lower than the current forecast.
Around 3 billion trips are normally made in what has come to be known as the Spring Festival travel rush. People across the country usually enjoy a week-long holiday for family gatherings and celebrations for the Lunar New Year, which falls on February 12 this year.
This year, following a resurgence of sporadic COVID-19 cases, the government has encouraged people to stay put to celebrate the festival and travelers must have a negative virus test within seven days of departure.
Authorities have offered free refunds on plane tickets and extra pay for workers who stay put to dissuade travel for the holiday. Entertainment streaming services have been asked to offer more free movies, TV and sports services during the holiday to help people pass the time at home, while the three largest mobile operators — China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom — will give 20GB free data to users based in Beijing during the festival.
Efforts appeared to be working as Beijing’s main train station was largely quiet and estimates of passenger totals were smaller than in past years.
Miao Biao, a migrant worker in Hefei, capital of east China’s Anhui Province, said it would be his first time in 11 years to spend the holiday in Hefei instead of his hometown in the city of Fuyang.
According to the appliance maker Whirlpool China, where Miao works, about one-fourth of its 2,600 workers have chosen not to return to their hometown during the holiday. The company will grant them cash rewards, holiday gifts as well as a three-day vacation for a home visit in April.
