The Investor Behind Alibaba And Didi: Do GGV´s Other Investments Measure up?

As an investor behind both industry leaders Alibaba Group Holding Ltd and Didi Chuxing, GGV Capital has invested in nearly 180 projects in the U.S. and China.

Do they measure up compared to the successes of Alibaba and Didi?

As a venture firm established in 2000, GGV established a Shanghai office in 2005. In 2008, it merged with SIG Capital and its RMB subsidiary fund, Venture Star.

In April, GGV closed a number of new funds totaling US$1.2 billion in new commitments, bringing its total asset-under-management to US$3.8 billion across eight funds, an impressive record for a young firm.

Australia tells new lawmakers to take cautious view of Chinese investment

Australia has urged legislators to take a more cautious approach in backing China's pursuit of "legitimate interests" and stay alert to the motives guiding its investments, in a briefing book published by the non-partisan parliamentary library.

Authored by government officials and distributed ahead of Tuesday's opening of parliament, the booklet raises concerns that "creating a Eurasia-wide, China-led bloc to counter the United States (US)" is the long-term aim of China's "One Belt, One Road" project, including its investments in northern Australia.

China´s government wants to make it illegal for celebrities to misbehave

After a string of high-profile incidents of prostitution and drug use in China’s showbiz world, the government wants to legislate against bad behavior by celebrities.
A new draft law (link in Chinese), announced Aug. 30 during a meeting of the National People’s Congress Standing Committee—the country’s top law-making body—requires that actors, directors and film industry workers “obey laws and regulations, respect social and public integrity, abide by professional morals, reinforce self-discipline and establish a good public image.”

I support the Chinese government's decision. If ordinary citizens face punishment for unlawful behaviour/actions, why should the celebrities be allowed to walk away free and continue to corrupt the morals of society? The last thing China needs is another Hollywood, where drugs, prostitution, homosexual behaviour, marital breakup (the list goes on) is the norm. One only needs to look at America's problems to see how far Hollywood has corrupted America.

We hoped Tong Fong would offer a good alternative for other Chinese stores like Sun Wah in Antwerp (but hard to get to by car) and Amazing Oriental in Breda - a bit further out. But the choice at Tong Fong was very limited, compared to the other stores. Parking was no problem, but otherwise we were disappointed.

Avoid this hotel. At the checkout we were forced to pay for the minibar, for products we did not use. When we protested the owner got pretty aggressive, and made clear it was impossible they could have made a mistake. The conversation escalated and he even threatened my wife. There must be similar hotels with a good location and a reasonable price.

Nice authentic Chinese food (not spoiled by European tastes) that is very good when you are craving for Chinese food after too much Italian. Preparation was a bit fast-food style, but tasting pretty well. Staff was very friendly and the atmosphere, well, real Chinese.
