Restore, Repair, Revive, Resuscitate or Remodel? These 5 R’s define business investment decisions and are a precondition for the big R – Recovery.  Examination of Chinas’ economic and business response provides clues to how local businesses may survive, and to which businesses are better investments at current sell-down prices. Western economies can and must learn from China’s experience. Remodel is a major driver. The Chinese e-commerce site Taobao added 1 million new merchants during the China lockdown.   Ali-Health had a 7,000% growth rate so its clear business will need to Remodel to embrace e-commerce and social media links in ways that are integral to their business model.

China In Touch, 11 March 2020, Issue 272

Trade ministers are speaking optimistically of a return to normal as COVID-19 comes under control. Australia’s iron ore producers are equally optimistic as they look forward to the traditional China  infrastructure stimulus tool. They are wrong for one very important reason. The economic recovery will call for the recapitalisation of China business, big and small. This is a financial stimulus, not a construction stimulus. The recapitalisation will impact on investment activity both within China and outside of China with a reduction of outward flows of capital. The apartment in Sydney may become much cheaper as the Australian dollar falls and Chinese investment capital stays at home.
