At the same time, alliances with Chinese brands will enable European brands to penetrate the Chinese market and cash in on the purchasing power of Chinese consumers. Ten years ago, only one Chinese brand made the top The newcomers perhaps exemplify the rapid rise internationally of Chinese brands, as well as the changing nature of the Chinese economy, away from low-cost manufacturing and heavy industry to technology and innovation-focused privately-owned brands.
Huawei and China Telecom, another two Chinese brands that have entered the top for the first time this year, ranked 70th and 99th respectively, provide further, demonstrable proof of a sizeable shift toward technology and entrepreneurship across Chinese industry. In particular, Huawei, a leading multinational networking and telecommunications equipment company whose headquarters are in Shenzhen, has expanded most impressively internationally.
In , for example, Huawei overtook Ericsson to become the largest telecoms equipment manufacturer in the world, and now sells products and services in more than countries worldwide. Huawei is the second highest-ranked newcomer, behind Alibaba. BrandZ ranks Baidu as the 21st most valuable brand in the world, up four places on last year, with a 35 percent increase in brand value year-on-year.
European potential partners should be aware of the now global vision at Baidu and many Chinese companies. Chinese brands are also leading the way compared with other fast-growing regions and countries. BrandZ also reports on the growth of brands across emerging nations such as Brazil, Russia, India and China along with South Africa they make up the BRICS bloc , the four countries often cited as the new engine of global economic growth.
China and its brands also shine brightly here. None of the top Brazilian brands have made it into the BrandZ top BrandZ provides a separate section on the BRICS in which it is made clear that Russian brands remain relatively weak compared with Chinese competitors, and even Indian brands have struggled to grow internationally. No Indian or Russian brands appear in the top Combined with the increased competitiveness of Chinese brands, this provides huge opportunities for European brands and their penetration plans for the Chinese market. In particular, technology brands are no longer tainted with the low-cost, low-quality image that had dogged many Chinese companies for many years.
However, it is also important for many British and European brand producers to take note of the BrandZ findings on changes in the behavior of Chinese consumers.
German Irish Business Review by Rooney Media - Issuu
Consistent with my research in recent years, BrandZ reveals that Western brands have lost their mystique and the automatic allure they once commanded in the minds of many Chinese consumers. Improved competitiveness among many Chinese brands has contributed to the typical Chinese consumer now taking longer and thinking more rationally over many brand choices. Western brands such as Chanel and other previously invincible brands are no longer perceived as automatically superior.
The message to European brand producers, therefore, is clear: Identify a suitable Chinese brand partner and consider a Chinese image for the Chinese market. Die Verhandlungen treten jedoch seit Jahren auf der Stelle. Der Durchbruch war es jedoch nicht. Bemerkenswert ist der chinesische Vorschlag in jedem Fall. Auch hier geht es in erster Linie um den Ausbau der Infrastruktur, bei dem China — durchaus im eigenen Interesse — ein deutliches Wort mitreden will. Neue Finanzinstrumente bringen Vertrauen.

Decentralized intelligence helps create intelligent object networking and independent process management, with the interaction of the real and virtual worlds representing a crucial new aspect of the manufacturing and production process. The world as we know and experience it today has been shaped by three major technological revolutions. The second period of radical transformation with the advent of industrial production and the birth of the factory at the start of the 20th century was no less precipitous; ushering in as it did an age of affordable consumer products for mass consumption.
Highly individualized, low-volume, real-time production becomes the norm as new industrial assistant systems allow new forms of machine-human production in a changing industry landscape. In the late s the use of electronics and IT in industrial processes opened the door to a new age of optimized and automated production. The Internet of Things and Services can now be added to the historical list of forces mechanization, electricity, and Smart factory production brings with it numerous advantages over conventional manufacture and production.

The overall balance of employment is however, composed of many, sometimes contradictory trends. The strongest contraction has been suffered in the construction area. The services sector is showing signs of growth again and in particular the growth of the hotel, restaurant and retail sectors suggest that the domestic economy and labour market are stabilising. Taoiseach Enda Kenny and the Irish government plan to take this a step further, to make Ireland the best small country in the world in which to do business. While this investment should focus on the future needs of the labour market, action is needed now.
During the economic boom period up until , the Irish government employment policy seemed to focus on driving high levels of economic activity, which would support jobs growth. These early years of the Celtic Tiger period created an entrepreneurial foundation of growing economic prosperity and competitiveness in Ireland. Most of these factors which led to this prosperity are still available to us today.
The consensus view of the Irish labour market currently is that it has stabilised. While there has been an increase in total employment of 33, in the year to Q2 , unemployment has remained extremely high with , people unemployed representing an unemployment rate of At the time of writing it appears that Q3 may see the statistics improve somewhat but full employment is still a very long way away. Germany had lost its competitiveness and youth and long term unemployment were at record levels as a result. The gap between East and West Germany opened further and the economy continued on two different velocities.
The modest growth in employment is underpinned by moderate economic growth, which although low is higher. A sharp increase in productivity at constant nominal wages over a 15 year period brought unit labour costs to very low levels. The training includes on-the job training and the development of workplace skills. Over 1, of these places are assigned to those under the age of It was only possible by maintaining almost constant consumer prices and increased competition in domestic retail and telecommunications price reductions, which caused the price of the consumer basket to fall relative to most other European countries.
These programmes are led by government agencies and are aimed at providing skills to address unemployment but need to be better connected to the current and future requirements of employers in the marketplace. In Ireland, recent wage austerity measures have brought about a reduction in nominal wages but the overall cost of living CPI has not supported wage austerity as the real cost of living has continued to increase. The private sector related part of the cost of living basket has indeed fallen but the state controlled part has increased resulting in less disposable income.
Public charges such as the TV licence, waste charges, increased road taxes, property taxes have increased to high levels and discretionary spending has been curbed particularly amongst those with lower incomes. Overall the cost of living in Ireland is higher than in Germany and is very close to the Nordic countries with their expensive welfare systems. Businesses must identify their future labour needs and then partner with government agencies in the actual provision of the skills required to meet those needs.
In Germany the content of the occupational training is determined by the employer. State intervention exists at a minimal level in order to ensure that short term needs of employers do not impede the broader educational and economic goals. Almost all participants are under the age of 25, approximately two thirds are aged 18 and under. It is particularly aimed at unemployed people who are early school-leavers.
