Xi JinPing: You get what you give

Filed under: Economy, Government, news, Politics — bananachinese @ 10:50 pm

How to disagree with the chief, la?

2017年1月17日,中国国家主席习近平出席达沃斯世界经济论坛并发表主旨演讲。在反全球化思潮高涨、世界经济持续低迷的关键当口,这个演讲为推动经济全球化更好地发展,发出了铿锵有力的中国声音;为推动世界经济更快地复苏,开出了综合施策的中国药方。

在世界经济快速发展的时期,经济全球化被视为阿里巴巴的山洞,蕴藏了无尽的财富。在世界经济低迷徘徊的时期,经济全球化又被当成潘多拉的盒子,成了万恶之源。应该承认,经济全球化是一柄双刃剑,在推动全球贸易投资充分发展、全球供应链快速形成、全球技术进步高速推进的同时,也对一些国家的特定群体形成了冲击,一定程度上加剧了收入差距的扩大。国际金融危机爆发之后,经济全球化带来的问题更加放大突出,民粹主义、保护主义、反全球化思潮愈演愈烈,终于在刚刚过去的2016年引爆了英国“脱欧”等一系列冲击性事件。

那么,世界问题的根源是经济全球化吗?习近平在演讲中给出了坚定的判断——把困扰世界的问题简单归咎于经济全球化,既不符合事实,也无助于问题解决。

比如,中东北非难民问题、国际金融危机爆发等问题都不是经济全球化造成的,而是源自战乱、冲突和地区动荡以及金融监管严重缺失下的资本过度逐利。“甘瓜抱苦蒂,美枣生荆棘”,诚然,我们不应过度赞誉经济全球化,但也不应过度诋毁经济全球化,将其一棍子打死。

经济全球化是先进生产力和生产方式的发展方向,是经济深刻变革的进程。如同几百年前,工业革命中传统手工作坊生产方式被机器工厂生产方式取代,造成了传统手工业者与工厂工人间的矛盾一样,今天的经济全球化也带来了新的矛盾和问题。但今天世界上有几个人愿意将生活水平降低到工业革命之前的状况呢?受限于现有制度的不完善,经济全球化在增大蛋糕的同时可能使部分群体利益受损。但这里的问题不是经济全球化本身。回避问题的鸵鸟态度并不可取,因噎废食更不可取,勇于担当的领导者应当直面问题、顺势而为,引导好经济全球化走向,让经济全球化的成果更好地惠及每个国家和每个民族。

找准了病根,才好对症下药。习近平指出,世界经济长期低迷的根源在于,全球增长动能不足、全球经济治理滞后、全球发展失衡。针对这些问题,习近平指出,应该坚持创新驱动,坚持协同联动,坚持与时俱进,坚持公平包容,打造富有活力的增长模式、开放共赢的合作模式、公正合理的治理模式、平衡普惠的发展模式。这是一剂综合施策的中国药方,这是一套旗帜鲜明的中国主张。

中国是经济全球化的受益者,也是贡献者。世界为中国提供了机遇,但中国改革开放38年取得的成绩更是中国人民任劳任怨、流血流汗、一点一滴干出来的。中国也为世界作出了相应的贡献,对外援助、培训交流,体现了中国的大国担当。进口商品服务、吸引外资、对外投资、出境旅游,展现了中国为世界带来的机遇。习近平表示,中国张开双臂,欢迎各国人民搭乘中国发展的“快车”“便车”。

坚持改革开放,推进“一带一路”国际合作,中国将继续以大国担当的姿态引领经济全球化。

Nothing has changed for Malaysia, or has it?

Being an old hand at this thingy that everyday Malaysians would gripe about with zestful anger, I most profess to be very sympathetic to their emotions.

It is a terribly, terribly, terribly sad affair isn’t it, that our politicians are not as clean nor as upright as we common people.

What’s going on with the MO1, 1MDB alphabetical soup concoction that has got big brother USA’s Attorney General worked up an investigation? Tun Dr Mahathir and Najib Abdul Razak and their minions going at each other?

The poor UMNO kampung folks can’t understand all these international business intrigue and machinations. Tak paham langsung perihal inilah, the poor makciks and pakciks….

Welcome to Vision 2020, Malaysians…. Miss this ride, you’ll have to wait forever for the next.

Beware of Malaysia telcos’ unfair plan on mobile users

Filed under: Uncategorized — bananachinese @ 5:55 pm

Shabery Cheek the UMNO minister talked about reducing telco charges.

Yawnnnn… Nothing new nor actions anew from a BN politician.

If dear Shabery Cheek really wants a seat on the UMNO VP, dare him to haul up the telcos charging hapless customers with uncheap monthly plan or that plan bundled with phone. Tying up customers to perpetuity (2 years are a hell of a long time in new phone gadgets acquisition), barring their lines when overdue yet still continually charging every monthly plan fees. All the while customer cannot use the barred lines, no service! And the bill keeps adding up. Telcos gains, customer threatened with CTOS blacklisting. Hell. Who of your voters want to pay for non useable phone time/service?

MCMC is just shutting a blind eye to this unfair practice benefitting them telcos. Maybe waiting for Minister to give instructions to action.

So tell me, MCMC and Shabery Cheek, why the telcos are allowed to benefit from such loop sided contracts for so long? Ever heard of good faith and fair dealing?

Henrik Clausen CEO of Digi Telecommunications… is this still true?

Filed under: Announcement, Life, Malaysia, Repair — Tags: , , , , — bananachinese @ 12:07 am

No. No. No. I’m not going to write anything about Malaysia’s MH370 nor comment on Najib Razak’s government’s handling of the issue.

Anyways, talking about communication…..

Heard a lot of complaints on Digi nowadays and found below comment about Digi service from the internet.

Hey Henrik, is this still a problem for Digi now?

=====

Suganthi Ramalingam (Sue):
DiGi Telecommunications why the yellow man not following me anymore.. out of 10calls, 8calls are dropping. Service is really bad. I am searching high and low for signal everywhere I go. Please follow me, so that I can get good signal.. I miss you yellow man.. Where are you. I need you very badly 😦

Digi’s reply:
Hi all, we’re aware of the outage and our engineers are currently troubleshooting the problem. We’d like thank you for your patience while we restore our services
Hi – Can you please restart your phone to acquire the signal again?

To which, there was no reply to.

Suganthi Ramalingam (Sue):
DiGi Telecommunications i restart my phone every day and nothing helps.. this issue have been going on the last few weeks… previously it was only at Nusaputra, Puchong then even in Cyberjaya the problem is occurring. Even those ppl in Seremban are also having this issues. I am from Technical line,.. so please do not give me some suggestions/solution, just to keep me occupied or to keep me happy.. we all know very well you have capacity and bandwith issues. And so called upgrades you are doing at your end is not serving the purpose either. Its either the UAT is not done properly, change is not raised properly or the upgrades are being carried in a haphazard manor I do not know. Either way, you guys needs to do proper Capacity Mgmt, carry out proper UAT and implement proper Change Mgmt processes. majority of your subscribers are not happy with the current service. Just cause they are quiet doesnt mean they are happy, some just port to another carrier or just to frustrated to even say anything. Humble advise, pls establish a quick response team who can work round the clock and have the “Service Improvement plan” drafted out for service restoration, otherwise you are going to loose more clients than you already did… I have been very faithful to the yellow man, it’s been 9years. we have been having a very very long and faithful relationship.. As much as possible, i would love to remain with the yellow man, but if you guys do not fix the issue, guess, I need to look elsewhere, probably the blue or orange man…..

My comments:
We are in the era of smartphones, technically, we do not really need reboot/restart our phones. Even when are signals are at full bar, the problem does happen. Here again, what we are we expecting is not a nimble answer but more for Digi to admit that they are having issues, that you are doing everything you can restore the services. Add more signal towers or signal boosters Malaysia wide, if you have to. Do what it takes, let your customers know, give us a timeline, announce it on tv, FB, media. A real leader has the courage and has the capacity to admit the problems they have and at the same time, has teh confidence and tell us, stay with us, be patient with us, we will get this done. This will prove Digi to be a strong competitor, a responsible provider and a company who cares for their customers and ensures a long lasting trust relationship with the customer. Throw a freebie if you have to. This is where your loyal customers are born, this is where you make your name in the market. I am working for a huge MNC service provider company and I know how tedious is it to keep your customers happy. When there is an outage or service delivery issues, I know how much effort it takes to get that vote of confidence back. Never the less, that is what Service Provider industries are about. Whether you are a Telco, some big MNC company or small time retailers, it is only about one thing, KEEPING YOUR CUSTOMERS HAPPY, at all cost. Your customers either “Break you or Make you”. If you do not take care of your customers, they will run off to other service provider thus affecting the trust we have for Digi not to mention in the drop of sales. Then you will re-invent the wheel and go through a sales frenzy, lower your cost and try to win back the hearts and the cycle continues.

When you CARE for your customers, they will remain with you, no matter how bad the situation can be, cause we know you care and this is just a temporary glitch and you will make the ammendments, the soonest you can, cause you are RELIABLE. And you would definitely win the hearts of millions of Malaysian’s and people will sign up with Digi no matter what the price is and stick by you. That is the difference between a company that is just doing a business for profit sake and a company that still makes a profit but with the needs of the customers, well taken care of. Who you think will win this battle? Who you think, will make profit and emerge as a leader?
The world is emerging and with the Internet hype, and introduction of VoIP, and the emergence of Lync, Skype and Viber, video conferecing and etc.. etc.. things are either getting cheaper or technically “free”, by the minute and if Digi is to stand all and still able to make a profit, you gotta do someting different, think different. Care for your customers and you will win our VOTES and our HEARTS and our MONEY.

Suganthi Ramalingam
Been faithful to the yellow man the last 9years, don’t make me change. I Love the “Yellow Man”

BR1Mful of relief but none for struggling Malaysia SME middle class

Filed under: Economy, Government, Life, Malaysia, Media — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 7:12 pm

Here we go again… handout time again.

Good intention, but why not the government of Barisan Nasional think about really giving a useable lifeline to those who can and able to better generate the economy so that those who always received BR1M will not be needing it anymore cos they already can fend for themselves?

Damnit… Why don’t the Najib Razak government give a fishing line to those who will fish, not just handing out them fishes whenever you like it to those marhean to shore up some political uppance over some pakatan! Come to think of it, BR1M is like a shade of UB40

Maybe Najib Razak and his cabinet of the wealthy ministers enjoying annual overseas holidays (on the rakyat’s charge) really do not know the reality on the ground.

Maybe Idris Jala too engrossed with the labs (brings to mind those poor lab rats, sacrificed for somebody’s need to play, oops, experiment). Maybe Pemandu‘s GPS is malfunctioned. One silly elite rich minister also likes study labs… (duh, you mean, you know nothing about your people’s misery until you get installed as Minister, set up labs to test them mice?)

Makes you wonder if BN has really lost it and will be lost forever…

Ain’t it more helpful and more realistic to just allow 15% early EPF withdrawal for those 45 to 49 years old. This more helpful and value added to this group who contributes most to SME middle class economic survival in hard economic times. BRIM is no use to economically aid this entrepreneurially inclined group, don’t the Najib Razak government know?

Hey PM, your economic advisors better not ignore this important group, or your political advisors will have a losing time coming GE.

Germany Deutsche Boerse NYSE

I offer you this FOC advice so that BN can kill 2 birds with one stone. Show some love to your middle class and at the same time you prove to the world that there are still funds in KWSP. That’ll will shut up your detractors.

And we rakyat will have our share of fun watching both sides working really hard for real to win our love.

BN: To rebuild, to regain or to fall into some blackhole that is the question

Filed under: Citizenry, Malaysia, Media, Politics, Repair — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 7:15 pm

After BN’s big loss of face outcome from Malaysia’s 13th General Election, Samy Vellu declared sagely recently that it is time for BN to regain people’s trust.

Hmmm… a bit late there (somebody beat the MIC legend to it in 2010).

Makes one wonder why BN still keep them UMNO cybertroopers who helped Najib Razak to lose face big time (especially in Selangor) by repelling voters below 50s.

Listen up UMNO, MCA, MIC – you better find yourselves some quality social media engagers if you want to stay on to give a good fight in GE14. Otherwise it will be a boring GE for your fading members and our pelancong politik.

Some may ask what about Khairy Jamaludin‘s cyber team? Pooh, pooh, I say. In Twitter, FB, blogs, frankly, the MCA writer of the original rebuilding trust article seems to possess more politically solid content than his army’s.

李素桦律师:“也许马华与民政党的领袖就是要迫使华社看到这样的局面而感到自责与担忧,可是,让他们吃惊的是,大部分受访的华人对这两个政党的成员人不入阁都抱无所谓的态度”。李律师与普罗大众因们在党内部直接参与的关系故以为不入阁是恐吓华社,其实不入阁是对党内元老及社团老大说的,马华与民政做不做部长对普罗大众没直接影响,但对这些元老及社团老大的生意却大有影响。而这些元老,社团老大及区会领袖常常会把某区故意弄输以换取更大的利益,因为黑区没有中央的国州议员所以这些元老,社团老大,丹斯里,拿督及区会领袖的权利最大,权力加上金钱咋事都好办,他们最好他们的堡垒区永远都是反对党赢,所以老蔡深知游戏规则坚持不入阁,看你们这些元老,社团老大,丹斯里,拿督及区会领袖还玩这套花样吗?所以火箭赢了你别以为火炬是神,其实是这些家伙在搞鬼
