A quick visit to Hongkong and Shenzhen

Actually it was bad planning for the period in between September 22nd, the Moon festival, and a number of free days in the first week of October because of the national holiday in China on October 1st. But I had the chance to attend the China Rendezvous again on September 27th and 28th in Shenzhen. I also had to finish my talks with Matthew on the Joint Venture we are going to establish in Hongkong.

It is only 5 nights in a hotel and 2 nights in a plane, I normally take more time to create a good jetlag. The first evening I met some friends in Carnegie's. I started my talks with Matthew, talked business with David and just had some Friday night fun. I ended the night at Dragon-i but finally the evening had become a little bit to long for me. Next day Matthew and I could finish talks over lunch and we informed our lawyer, Alexander, he could start to prepare the papers. With our different backgrounds and the focus on Risk management and Actuaries we expect a successful future.

I had been in Shenzhen before but never more than some hours. It is one of the symbols of the Chinese success. Here started the opening for entrepreneur ship three decades ago. From a little fish harbor it became now a huge town with over 10 million. The first night I went to a Shenzhen area near the ocean. From my hotel near the city centre the taxi drove 25 km through this brand-new town. Yes it is big. In my next blog I will write about the conference and the afternoon I played the biggest golf court. There are 12 times 18 holes waiting on Mission Hills. It is expensive, about two times Dutch prises, but one has to make a reservation more than 3 days before because the popularity of the place.
