HONG KONG AND CHINA REMIND THE WORLD OF POLITICAL TURBULENCE
Here is background on this release. While the situation in Hong Kong and China remains in flux at the time of this writing, certain aspects are clear with respect to business travel security. First, business travel will continue regardless of the political situation given China’s weight as a major international business power; the same goes for Hong Kong. Thus ignoring China and Hong Kong is not an option, even for many small businesses. Second, no one can predict how the political future will emerge in Hong Kong and China as there are many variables; the best one can hope for is a political resolution that respects the interests of both parties, but especially the foundational human rights and political freedoms of the former British colony. Third, the situation is yet another reminder of the volatile world in which we live. Political and economic instability is the “new normal,” and business and corporate travelers should take this into account. Fortunately, new travel safety apps make personal security alertness more feasible than ever, and “push” and “pull” alerts are available with respect to all types of risk from political to economic to weather-related.
