Shanghai, China, December 28, 2020 /Xinwengao.com/ – Shanghai transcosmos Marketing Services Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shanghai, China; CEO: Eijiro Yamashita; transcosmos China), a wholly-owned subsidiary of transcosmos inc., is proud to announce that with its e-commerce services primarily for TMALL and JD, clients generated gross merchandizing volume (GMV) of over 2.909 billion yuan (about 46.32 billion yen, converting 1 yuan to 15.92 yen) on November 11, China’s Double Eleven Shopping Festival.
Unlike previous years where the campaign ran only on November 11, 2020 Double Eleven campaign period was extended to fully stimulate consumers’ buying appetite. The campaign was conducted in two phases this year, first from November 1 to 3 (3 days) and next on November 11 (24 hours). Accordingly, each platform tallied up each brand’s GMV for 11 days, from 12 a.m. November 1 to 11:59:59 p.m. November 11, an extension from only 24 hours on November 11 in the past. The first Double Eleven – a mega national shopping event in China – after the novel coronavirus outbreak showcased China’s strong consumer appetite and its potential. During Double Eleven, TMALL achieved GMV of 498.2 billion yuan (about 7,931.3 billion yen, converting 1 yuan to 15.92 yen), whilst JD reaching GMV of 271.5 billion yuan (about 4,322.2 billion yen, converting 1 yuan to 15.92 yen). And, transcosmos China provided its services to nine brands that were ranked in the TMALL “1 billion yuan club” (brands with 1 billion yuan sales or higher during Double Eleven).

Year after year, Double Eleven continues to heat up, and expectations for new retail services also keep rising among e-commerce shopping malls and brands alike. Against the background, service providers are facing tough times for they must show their collective strength including capabilities to gain ad resources from the platforms, grasp on and off-peak periods, select items, operate data, manage consumer operations, and more. As a TMALL five-star partner, transcosmos China secured advertising spots and resources, and ran them both online and offline from the night before the Double Eleven pre-sales period, ultimately helping clients hit a record high GMV during Double Eleven using data tools and a variety of marketing techniques.
BANDAI official flagship store
TMALL “BANDAI official flagship store” which transcosmos China operates, has renewed its record GMV again during Double Eleven 2020. Its merchandizing volume recorded on November 1, the initial date of the event, surpassed the GMV of the previous year, and seven items exceeded 1 million yuan sales (about 15.92 million yen, converting 1 yuan to 15.92 yen). Moreover, BANDAI sold limited red-colored character items, the symbolic color of China, and those items alone generated 6 million yuan (about 95.52 million yen, converting 1 yuan to 15.92 yen), achieving great success. transcosmos China assisted BANDAI in skyrocketing its sales volume with the following marketing techniques.
Advertising resources: transcosmos China has entered into a brand advertisement design competition hosted by TMALL. Highly recognized for its creativity and rendering techniques, the company has successfully acquired ad spots where TMALL gives great exposure. Given the spots, BANDAI has become one of the top brands to be showcased on TMALL’s both print and video ads during the Double Eleven campaign, thereby enabling BANDAI to expose the brand for free in the most densely populated areas such as subways, business districts and office buildings in major cities.
Data-driven marketing: With the power of Alibaba’s Brand Databank (integrated database owned by Alibaba Group), transcosmos China gained consumer insights and delivered campaign ads tailored to each target group, thereby helping BANDAI execute its initiatives to attract consumers to its online store in ways that meet the needs of target groups from the pre-sales period.
Offline campaign: transcosmos China presented a proposal to open a pop-up store, and developed and executed strategies for success. BANDAI opened the store in front of the crowded Shimao International Plaza located on East Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street in Shanghai. Within only 5 days, the store welcomed a cumulative total of over 100 thousand customers.
Canon Official Flagship Store
At 1 a.m. on November 11, Canon official flagship store (URL: https://canon.tmall.com/), one of transcosmos China’s clients, was listed in “TMALL Double Eleven Digital Home Appliance Industry Top 10 Brands (in terms of merchandizing volume).”
Live Commerce: transcosmos China formed an influencer marketing team with its highly specialized members, and with the general manager of Canon Business Unit joining the team, they streamed its store live. As a result, the Canon official flagship store ranked the industry’s top 6 in the live commerce category, exceeding 500 thousand total views and as many as 1.5 million Likes a day.
Data-driven marketing: transcosmos China successfully attracted 16 million new customers to the flagship store via Alibaba’s social game “Super Interactive City.” Moreover, the company assisted Canon in sending pre-sales advertising to each target group using Alibaba’s Brand Databank. Many of those ads achieved an ROI of over 100%, playing an important role in increasing store traffic and conversion during both pre-sales and official Double Eleven periods.
Furthermore, with its data-driven consumer operations and highly accurate marketing services, transcosmos China’s “Uni Marketing” team helped top brands in their respective industries, such as sports & outdoor (ANTA), footwear (TATA), and household products (MDZF SWEETHOME, HOTATA, IRIS OHYAMA) expand their businesses. Among those brands, IRIS OHYAMA, a household product brand from Japan, delivered 49% year-over-year active customer growth, and 26% GMV growth from the previous year, achieving over 33.36 million yuan (about 500 million yen, converting 1 yuan to 15.92 yen).
Since transcosmos China launched its operations in Shanghai as a digital transformation partner for businesses in 2006, the company has continued expanding its business, and now has 10 service bases in 7 cities in China. transcosmos China offers extensive services such as contact center services, new retail services and digital marketing services for over 70 Chinese and global brands.

LehmanBrown successfully made the British Ball 2020 become a reality.Beijing, China, December 28, 2020 /Xinwengao.com/ – On November 7th it was great to see everyone from the British expat community and friends again and for a sold-out British Ball. Guests were all welcomed to the wonderful “Rocketman” themed night with fun cocktails and draft beers, and delicious morsels made by TRB. This year’s good cause was EGRC which helps girls from rural China acquire their education with meals. In support, LehmanBrown worked closely in helping organise the event with the British Ball Organizing Committee and the British Chamber of Commerce in China, to make sure to pull off the ball.
The ball kicked off with a very good Elton John look-alike signing some of Elton’s greatest hits, making way for speeches by both Steven Lynch from the British Chamber of Commerce in China, and Her Majesty’s Ambassador Caroline Wilson CMG from the British Embassy to China. Once the formalities were over the guests dug into the exquisite four-course dinner with singing competitions, Best Dressed awards, and raffles.

Outside the ballroom, however, the drinks were pouring at the cocktail bar and the competition for the silent and high valued auction prizes was fierce. British Ball 2020 had over 100 prizes for guests to win and take home, ranging from free BMW test drives of their X5 model to a week stay at the Songtsam hotel.
Once the dinner was over the dance floor was packed with everyone eager to forget their worries and enjoy dancing to the classic Elton John hits and other incredible tracks of that era. LehmanBrown is very proud to have sponsored and supported the British Ball 2020, and it is a remarkable achievement to have gone ahead with the ball guaranteeing the support to a good cause. Rest assured LehmanBrown will sponsor next year’s British ball and help in its organising, carrying on this great British Beijing tradition.

According to a New Whitepaper by Metaari, International Investments in Learning Technology Companies in 2020 Surged to Over $36.38 BillionWashington, United States, January 13, 2021 /Xinwengao.com/ – Metaari has published their annual whitepaper in the first week of January every year since 2004. The new free whitepaper has 61 pages, 6 tables, and eleven charts. It is called “The 2020 Global Learning Technology Investment Patterns: Massive Spike in Funding.”
Global investment to learning technology companies surged to a breathtaking $36.38 billion in 2020, up dramatically from the $18.66 billion invested in 2019 and more than double the $16.34 billion invested in 2018. The number of deals spiked from 896 in 2019 to 1,251 deals in 2020.

This whitepaper breaks out investments made to ten types of learning technology products: three legacy products and seven advanced learning technologies. The legacy products include Self-pace eLearning (asynchronous courseware), Digital ReferenceWare (test prep, audiobooks, videos, manuals, etc.), and Collaboration-based Learning (synchronous live online classes and tutoring)
The advanced learning technology products include AI-based Learning, Mixed Reality Learning (Simulation, AR, and VR), Game-based Learning, Cognitive Learning (behavior modification), Mobile Learning, Location-based Learning, and Education and Training Bots (both physical and virtual).
“Despite the massive funding going to Chinese companies, the US accounted for the highest amounts of funding,” comments Sam Adkins, the Chief Researcher at Metaari. “Just over $16.15 billion went to 611 US learning technology developers in 2020. This is 44.4% of all global investments made in 2020.”
There were very large investments made to online learning companies in China, but only to a few companies. A full 31.6% ($11.52 billion) of all global investments in 2020 went to just 125 Chinese companies. Yet, this funding was highly concentrated in just two companies: Yuanfudao and Zuoyebang. Combined, they garnered 50.8% of all funding going to Chinese learning technology developers in 2020.
“Combined, the US and China accounted for 76.0% of all global funding in 2020,” comments Adkins. “Yet, there are major differences in the investment patterns in China and the US. In China, investors pumped very large amounts into a relatively small number of companies and most of them offer live online classes.”
Investments in the US were much smaller than China but went to a large number of companies. The one striking thing about the investment patterns in the US is the keen investor interest in AI-based Learning companies. A total of $8.45 billion was invested in 287 AI-based Learning companies in the US in 2020. To put this in context, a full 83% of all global investments in AI-based Learning went to US companies. In sharp contrast, “only” $534.6 million went to just 22 AI-based Learning companies in China; a mere 5.3% of the total global investments made to AI-based Learning companies.
Investment in corporate-facing companies in 2020 nearly doubled compared to 2019; investment reached a breathtaking $10.39 billion in 2019. A massive $17.22 billion went to 702 corporate-facing companies in 2020.
Funding declined for consumer-facing learning technology companies in 2019 but rebounded dramatically in 2020. Funding dropped to $6.67 billion in 2019, but spiked to $13.48 billion in 2020.
In 2019, there were only 84 deals made with PreK-12 learning technology companies and investment fell to $855.32 million. This changed dramatically in 2020, with $4.39 billion going to 107 companies serving the PreK-12 segment. In 2020, funding to learning technology suppliers serving the global higher education segments surged to $1.09 billion.
The big winners in 2020 were AI-based Learning developers, Collaboration-based Learning (live online tutoring) providers, Mixed Reality Learning developers, and Mobile Learning edtech companies. But it was AI-based Learning that attracted the largest amount of funding by a wide margin.
An astonishing $3.67 billion was invested in 120 AI-based Learning companies in 2019. This pales in comparison to the $10.17 billion that went to 359 AI-based Learning companies in 2020. The vast majority (83%) of funding went to US startups.
Corporations (particularly healthcare firms) are the top buyers of AI-based Learning followed by federal government agencies across the planet. Companies and agencies are using AI-based Learning in cybersecurity training, pre-employment assessment, intelligent business simulations, augmented predictive analytics (also called insight engines), big data visualization, knowledge graphing, digital twins and digital employees, and a relatively new trend, AI-based IT operations and support (AIOps). AI has essentially reinvented the call center industry.
AI-based Learning is used in five major ways in healthcare: pathology, analytics, diagnosis, etiology (causation), and treatment (therapy). When enhanced with AI, platforms designed for all five become knowledge engines.
“Perhaps the greatest impact on AI-based Learning in the healthcare industry are the advances being made in precision medicine, clinical decision support, and in imaging diagnostics,” adds Adkins.
There was a sharp spike in investments made to PreK-12 learning technology providers in India. Just under $3.0 billion ($2.96 billion) in capital flowed to 114 learning technology companies in India in 2020, but 38% of this went to just one company; the online education juggernaut BYJU’S raised $1.11 billion in five rounds in 2020.
Learning technology investments spiked in the UK and Germany in 2020 but declined in France and Canada compared to 2019. Investments rebounded in the Nordic Cluster, Israel, and Australia after declines in 2019. Investment activity is inherently unpredictable and nowhere is that more apparent than the rebounds and declines in 2020.
Latin America is again a hotbed of investment in edtech startups after three years of decline. In 2019, only $98.7 million was invested in just 12 learning technology companies in the region. That changed dramatically in 2020 with 23 companies raising $346.0 million in funding.
Eighteen edtech companies in Southeast Asia raised a combined total of $327.8 million in funding in 2019, up more than four times from the $75.5 million invested in 2018. This spiked dramatically in 2020 with $595.9 million going to 41 edtech companies in the region.

#1 risk for 2021: 46*—Biden’s election heralds era in which half of America’s voters view every new president as illegitimate.New York, USA, January 12, 2021 /Xinwengao.com/ – As we begin 2021, the United States is the most powerful, politically divided, and economically unequal of the world’s industrial democracies. China is America’s strongest competitor, a state capitalist, authoritarian, and techno-surveillance state that is increasingly mistrusted by most G20 countries. Germany and Japan are much more stable, but the most powerful leaders both nations have had in decades are out (former Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo) or on their way out (German Chancellor Angela Merkel). Russia is in decline and blames the US and the West for its woes.
Even as the world grapples with its worst crisis since World War II, some risks are more potent, deadly, and likely to change the course of world politics. These are Eurasia Group’s Top Risks for 2021, the firm’s annual prediction of the ten greatest threats to the trajectories of nations, global politics, industries and institutions. Unveiled each January, Top Risks helps investors, companies and the public anticipate and respond to opportunities wherever they invest or do business. The report is co-written by Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer and Chairman Cliff Kupchan.

The #1 risk for 2021 is “46*”—the opening of an era in which the occupant of the White House is viewed as illegitimate by roughly half the country. Donald Trump’s refusal to accept the outcome of an election that he declares was stolen is unique in American history, underscoring how divided America has become—and will remain.
“A superpower torn down the middle cannot return to business as usual,” write Bremmer and Kupchan. “And when the world’s most powerful country is so divided, everybody has a problem. The geopolitical recession—and our G-Zero world—will deepen as a result.”
Bremmer and Kupchan go on to argue that the strength of Trump’s base and political divisions in the US will force allies to consider the possibility that any commitments made by the incoming Biden administration could be overturned in four years with the election of another “America First” president.
Other Top Risks in the report include the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic, climate change, the US-China conflict, data and cybersecurity, and distinct threats facing Turkey, the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America. The report also includes several “red herrings”—issues that, despite media attention, are unlikely to pose significant threats or drive instability in the coming year.
Top Risks has an impressive track record for being both early and accurate in its predictions. Eurasia Group’s 2020 Top Risks report, for example, correctly predicted a contested US election as its #1 risk.
Bremmer and Kupchan will host an on-the-record press conference call today, 4 January, at 10:30 a.m. EST/15:30 GMT to discuss the risks and take questions. To participate, please register here.
Below is a summary of all ten Top Risks for 2021. Please click here for the full report.
TOP RISKS 2021
When the world’s most powerful country is as divided as the United States is now, the G-Zero geopolitical recession is sure to deepen. The world needs the leadership and cooperation that an engaged and well-functioning superpower can help provide, because, just as the healthcare response to the coronavirus pandemic defined 2020, the economic response to its lasting damage will define 2021.
#1 – 46*
Following a 2016 Trump victory that many Democrats believe Russia helped him win, Biden’s term opens the era of the asterisk presidency, a time when every Oval Office occupant is seen as illegitimate by roughly half the country—and the lawmakers that election skeptics send to Congress. Most of the risk here is domestic, but the consequences of extreme polarization for democratic legitimacy extend well beyond US borders. Apart from a shared desire to contain China, Republicans and Democrats will disagree sharply—with each other and among themselves—over the objectives of US foreign policy. In addition, the size of Trump’s base, and the broadening of that base to include more minority voters, leaves allies and potential partners wondering whether the next “America First” president and foreign policy are just four years away.
#2 – Long Covid
In 2021, the lingering symptoms of Covid-19 will threaten not just lives but political stability and the global economy. Countries around the world will struggle to meet ambitious vaccination timelines, and the pandemic will leave a legacy of high debt, displaced workers, and lost trust. The distribution of vaccines will divide haves from have nots, both within and among nations, stoking anti-incumbent anger and public unrest in many countries. Some emerging markets will experience a debt crunch this year. With inflation and borrowing costs rising, they’ll have far less room than the US and Europe to cushion Covid’s economic blow.
#3 – Climate: net zero meets G-Zero
Climate policy will move from playground of global cooperation to arena of global competition. Across a range of clean technologies, China’s longstanding industrial policy approach will now face a much more aggressive climate push from Washington. Some parts of the clean energy supply chain will face bifurcation pressures like those seen in 5G. The push for net-zero emissions targets will create enormous opportunities for private capital, especially the growing pool of environmental, social, and governance dollars and euros, but winners and losers will be determined as often by political factors as by market forces.
#4 – US-China tensions broaden
A shared desire in Washington and Beijing for stability in US-China relations will briefly ease headline tensions, but intensifying vaccine diplomacy and climate and tech competition will combine with longstanding frictions in other areas to further complicate their rivalry. Disagreements over trade, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the South China Sea will carry over into 2021. Collectively, these points of dispute will boost the risk of miscalculation and escalation toward crisis.
#5 – Global data reckoning
A slowdown or halt to the free flow of sensitive data across borders will raise costs for companies and disrupt popular apps and internet business models. This risk begins with the US and China, but it doesn’t end there. Even as the data-driven 5G and AI revolutions gain steam, other governments concerned about who is accessing their citizens’ data—and how—will erode the foundation of the open global internet. Business models for AI and other innovative tech sectors will suffer. App bans and other issues will hamper global cooperation on public health and climate challenges.
#6 – Cyber tipping point
There is no single factor that raises the risk of a major disaster in cyberspace in 2021. The digital realm, where any computer or smartphone can become an entry point for hackers and nation states, and criminals act with relative impunity, is too unpredictable for that. Instead, a combination of low-probability but high-impact risks and inexorable technology trends will make 2021 the year that cyber conflict creates unprecedented technological and geopolitical risk in cyberspace.
#7 – (Out in the) cold Turkey
Economic setbacks in 2021 and Turkey’s poor Covid response will leave President Recep Tayyip Erdogan struggling to win back voters disillusioned with his two-decade rule. These dynamics will stoke social tensions, prompt a crackdown against the opposition, and encourage Erdogan to launch more foreign policy adventures to fuel nationalism and distract his supporters. But this year, Turkey’s president won’t have international friends to shield him from the consequences.
#8 – Middle East – low oil takes a toll
Energy-producing countries in the Middle East and North Africa faced a collapse in global energy demand in 2020 that left governments from Algeria to Iran with less cash flowing into their coffers—even as the pandemic sickened citizens and weakened economies. 2021 will be worse, because energy prices will remain low. Many of these governments will cut spending, damaging vulnerable private sectors and fueling unemployment. Reforms will slow, and protests will grow.
#9 – Europe after Merkel
Angela Merkel’s departure later this year after 15 years as chancellor will drive the continent’s top risk in 2021. Europe faces an economic hangover from intensified lockdown restrictions in several countries, and Merkel won’t be there to encourage flexibility in the multilateral response. Without the German leader to serve as a strong and neutral negotiator, diplomatic efforts to resolve energy and territorial disputes in the Eastern Mediterranean will struggle, as will the UN process to address Cyprus issues. The EU position will become more hawkish as France pushes more member states to get tough with Turkey, raising the odds of diplomatic rupture.
#10 – Latin America disappoints
Governments in Latin America face intensified versions of the formidable political, social, and economic problems they were confronting before the pandemic. There will be no large-scale vaccinations until late in the year, and countries are poorly positioned to deal with another Covid wave before then. Political and economic pressures will intensify as Argentina and Mexico hold legislative elections in 2021, and voters in Chile, Ecuador, and Peru vote for president.
RED HERRINGS
Trump’s friends in trouble – Trump-friendly leaders such as Erdogan, Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro, the UK’s Boris Johnson, and Israel’s Binyamin Netanyahu will engage with the new US president where they can.
Techlash in US – US lawmakers won’t declare war on the tech companies helping to restore post-pandemic growth.
Iran-US confrontation – Ties between the US and Iran will be neither as productive nor destructive as many fear.

DHgate has now started selling charging accessories, protection bags, spare tires, and more, along with scooters.Beijing, China, January 3, 2021 /Xinwengao.com/ – DHgate is now offering original scooter charging accessories, protection bags, spare tires, and more, apart from their wholesale business of selling Xiaomi scooter. The company decided to provide accessories to their clients who opt for the scooter as it is necessary to charge the scooter’s battery at regular intervals. With their massive sale of scooters and accessories in the last few quarters, the wholesaler is doing quite well in this sector.
One of the accessories this firm has sold in large numbers is the Xiaomi Mijia M365 electric scooter original charger. This charger is one of the best batteries for scooters that have a voltage of 36V. This lithium-ion battery has high certifications from FCC, CE, and UL; it shows the high-quality performance of this battery and explains why people opt for this original one instead of anything else.

Jane Zhang, head of marketing operations at this organization stated, “We started selling just the scooters first; however, soon after looking at the demand, our focus shifted to selling charging accessories also. It has been a boon for us as our order-number almost doubled after offering charging accessories to clients. We look forward toward growing with the help of our loyal clients and will keep adding more accessories to our list.”
The company also remarked that the battery has a charging voltage of AC100-240V at 50-60Hz. Its frame material is also manufactured using aluminum/alloy, making it quite a sturdy piece of equipment. Besides, this firm is also now shipping products globally depending on the wholesale order clients give.
Apart from the charger, scooter, etc., the organization is also selling dust protection bags that can easily hold a mini pro-self-balance electric scooter hover board. Lastly, they added to their list of selling accessories are spare scooter airless rubber tires. These are specifically made for the Dhgate: Xiaomi Scooter M365 Pro.
One of the board members of DHgate mentioned, “We started progressing by just offering scooters in the beginning. However, with increasing demand, we knew we had to jump on the opportunity to supply not just scooters but also every available accessory required. This step has helped us develop and increase our clientele to a new high.”
The firm is looking to keep selling scooters as their priority; however, they want to make a name for themselves when exporting accessories. With rising orders and more potential clients making a query about these scooters and accessories’ availability, it seems that the company is moving in the right direction. So, anyone looking for scooters now knows where to place an order.
About DHgate
