China's cloud computing market projected to reach 686.6 bln yuan by 2020

China's cloud computing industry will grow by at least 30 percent year on year on average in the coming five years, the latest industry report showed.

By 2020, the aggregate market size of the country's cloud computing industry is expected to hit 686.6 billion yuan (about 103.6 billion U.S. dollars), according to the Report of Prospects and Investment Strategy Planning on China Cloud Computing Industry (2017-2022) published by Forward Intelligence Co., Ltd., a special market research institute.

The country's cloud computing industry has experienced robust growth since 2010 and its market size reached 178.2 billion yuan in 2016, up 18.8 percent year on year, said the report.

The growth was propelled mainly by public departments, who serve both as the customer and the government, as well as by telecom operators, the service provider.

Cloud-based infrastructure or infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) is playing a key role in the industrial development, while factors include the adoption of platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) are also growing fast, according to the report.

The central government attaches great importance to using emerging information technology, including cloud computing and the Internet of Things, to shore up the digital economy, as information consumption, mobile payments and e-commerce grow rapidly in the country.

The cloud computing market is expanding fast worldwide. Last month, American market research firm Gartner's latest worldwide public cloud services revenue forecast showed the cloud computing market would reach 411 billion U.S. dollars by 2020, driven by robust growth of services including IaaS, PaaS and SaaS, according to media reports.

Cloud computing, also called on-demand computing, is the delivery of on-demand computing resources over the internet.

China expects favorable trade environment in 2018

China's foreign trade environment will remain favorable in 2018, although the trade protectionism risks still keep growing, the commerce ministry said on Monday.

The Chinese government is implementing policies to cool the property sector and deal with debt risks in the economy. China's stronger than expected trade performance this year has provided support for the economy.

"Looking forward to 2018, China's foreign trade conditions are generally favorable as the global economy steadily recovers, and China's economy grows smoothly," the ministry said.

"But there are still many external risks and uncertainties with economic and non-economic factors intertwined. As trade protectionism continues to grow, domestic costs also continue to rise. As a result, pressure on business has increased, and the development of China's foreign trade continues to face many difficulties and challenges."

After several years of contraction, China's foreign trade has recovered this year, even though the government has not set a specific target for international trade growth in past two years.

Growth in foreign trade may slow down, but will remain at a high level in the fourth quarter, a ministry report said.

Economists expect China's exports have risen 7.2 percent on-year in October, slower than 8.1 percent the previous month.

Economists are positive about the Chinese export outlook due to the improvement in the global economy. Capital Economist Evans-Pritchard, still feels that China's imports may face "a sharper slowdown," because of that the support to the economy from a loose fiscal policy reverses. And local governments are forced to rein in spending in the final months of the year to meet budget targets.

With a GDP growth of 6.9 percent in the first half, China's economy is also on firmer footing this year, contributing to brisk import growth.

The IMF raised its forecast for China growth for the fourth time this year in its latest report. The IMF predicts that China's economy will grow 6.8 percent this year, and 6.5 percent next year, both 0.1 percentage point higher than its previous forecasts.

Optimal use of human resources; design, installation and maintenance of aesthetically appealing entrance areas, inner courtyards, terraces and floral decoration; upkeep of sophisticated buildings ... all these functions are now performed by Sodexo for its clients.

"We will cater to diverse segments as our clients are increasing," said Bruno Vaquette, CEO of Sodexo China. "For example, we're introducing wellness services in China as part of our 'Mindful' project."

The services, including staff training courses, have already become popular in some metropolises, thanks to agreements with corporate icons such as JD.com Inc and St Luke's Hospital in Shanghai.

The Sept 1 agreement with JD was for upgrading Sodexo's supply management.

Sodexo's wellness services include entertainment sessions and enjoyable short breaks during off-work periods, which are designed to raise awareness of fitness among employees of its corporate clients.

"We will respond to industry trends and needs via innovation and more services."

With 425,000 employees worldwide, Sodexo takes the 19th rank among the world's largest employers and figures in the Global 500 list. Its China unit company employs 12,000 staff.

"Our Chinese on-site employees are all local people, and are supported by thousands of in-house experts, which helps in delivering services in time as per clients' demands," said Vaquette.

Paul Junck, managing director of the Luxembourg Private Equity & Venture Capital Association, said, "Opening up the services market is mutually beneficial for foreign investors and Chinese domestic players. Companies' development is stimulated by competition between players, and industry standards rise thanks to such development."

Employment demand sees negative growth in first tier cities

Employment demand across China's first-tier cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen saw negative growth year-on-year for the first time, according to a report issued on Thursday by China Institute of Employment Research with Renmin University of China.

The CIER index, designed to monitor China's job climate, rose to 2.43 in the third quarter from 2.26 in the second, indicating continuous improvement in employment.

Increasing recruitment demand among enterprises, decreasing job-hopping in the job market and relatively less job hunting among graduates led to the rising CIER index, said Zeng Xiangquan, director of China Institutefor Employment Research.

Employment demand in first-tier cities saw year-on-year drop for the first time, at 7 percent, according to data by recruitment website Zhaopin.

Urban resource optimization, a declining registered permanent residence quota and relocation of outdated industries are the main reasons behind decreasing demand, Zeng said, adding that the trend would continue.

More job applicants are supposed to flow to emerging first-tier cities, he said.

In the IT/Internet sector, which saw the highest employee increase, employment demand in emerging first-tier cities and third-tier cities increased 121 percent and 82 percent respectively, much higher than the national average level of 60 percent, while demand in first-tier cities saw negative growth, with a fall of 2 percent.

Employment in Northeast China saw and uptrend , with the CIER index rising to 1.42 from 1.33 in the second quarter. Employment demand in this region increased 57 percent over last year, much higher than 33 percent in East China.
