UK firms seek Chinese partners

British Airways, retailers keen to exploit sharp rise in mainland tourists to the isles

British airlines and retailers are finding Chinese business partners to make the most of increasing number of Chinese tourists visiting the United Kingdom.

The number of Chinese visitors to the UK has soared by over 150 percent in the five years since 2012. In 2017 alone, the UK received more than 500,000 visitors, a record.

New West End Company, representing over 600 retail, restaurant, hotel and property owners across London's West End shopping district, commissioned Pricewaterhouse-Coopers to conduct a survey of the latest status of visitor arrivals in London.

The PwC survey revealed a 27 percent year-on-year growth in Chinese visitors to London last year.

So, British Airways or BA, which already operates 17 weekly flights to Beijing and Shanghai from the UK, will develop its networks further in China, its top executive said.

"We'll continue to develop the existing traffic and continue to work with local partners to identify as quickly as possible ways to develop the Chinese market network," said Alex Cruz, BA chairman and CEO.

Part of International Airlines Group or IAG, BA already has code-share ticketing arrangements with China Sothern Airlines and China Eastern Airlines. BA is also eager to engage with startups to bring more innovative and smart travel services to Chinese customers.

"There is a tremendous amount of innovation being created in China at the moment. We're engaging with other Chinese groups of startups to understand how to develop customer propositions better," Cruz told China Daily.

For its part, IAG is mulling how to integrate Alipay and WeChat Pay into its payment systems so that its subsidiaries can accept mobile-based e-payments.

To meet future demand, BA is investing 4.5 billion pounds ($6.4 billion) over the next five years on improving aircraft facilities. It is also investing 600 million pounds in its Club World business class to lure more high-end customers.

Chinese visitors' spending in the UK contributes to the growth of not only the local aviation industry but the retail sector.

According to Global Blue, a global tax-free shopping information service provider, Chinese tourists' spending in London surged 32 percent last year compared to the 5-percent growth in the eurozone in the same period as Chinese travelers took advantage of a weakened British pound.

Premier Tax Free, a tourist tax-free refund service provider, said Chinese shoppers were expected to spend nearly 40 million pounds in the London West End's shopping area in the Spring Festival holiday period this year, representing a yearly growth of 14 percent. Actural data is awaited.

朱易 : 馬鞍峰教會的增長及其深遠影響 (1) 
許多前來參加每年一次牧師研討會的牧師感到(2003年人數達到二十五萬之多),他們正經歷著一場由華理克牧師主導的改革運動,他們好像又回到了激動人心的馬丁路德改教運動的時代,不同的是他們可以與領導今天這場改革的領袖相遇和交談。

華理克牧師認為馬丁路德時代的改革是讓教會清楚教會所相信的是什麼,這也是我們今天還在傳講的資訊和教義,而今天的改革是讓教會清楚教會要做什麼


第二次宗教改革的呼聲 
新興教會的運動是教會的第二次宗教改革, 它將徹底改寫教會歷史, 並開創全新的教會時代.

朱易 : 馬鞍峰教會的增長模式和教會市場法的危機 (1) 
除了“目標導向”的增長公式,許多牧師認為華理克牧師還有增長的秘訣,但華理克牧師認為他的增長策略其實是十分簡單,歸納起來只有三條.

不少學者持懷疑的態度, 他們認為“目標導向”不過是將傳統的基督教原則作了不同的包裝。




《断背山》风头正健,价值观江河日下 (1) 
对基督徒而言,这部影片只不过是一个用艺术包装起来的同性恋合理的说教。但这一次,基督徒却无法用忽略它的存在的方式来反击它,他们必须寻找新的方法来坚守传统的战线。


朱易: 他的正面思維影響了全世界 (1) 
但是斯凱勒在教會界配受尊重,除了他在教堂的建造上獨樹一幟外,他的人品和神學上也頗為出色。他是少數幾個沒有醜聞的電視布道家之一,而讓他成為非主流教會和許多基督徒仿效的對象的原因是,他的講道著重正面信息,用正面思維看問題。
