- Regional news: Qingdao, a city on the east coast of China, is applying for a free trade zone within the region. According to the Shanghai Shipping Exchange, the Qingdao port has become the world’s seventh busiest port in 2013 by both total cargo and total container volume. Setting-up free trade zones has become a popular strategy for local Chinese governments to stimulate local economies. Specifically, cities with major ports are encouraged to build free trade zones as it would follow one of China’s top strategies for 2016 – the One-Belt One Road initiative, which includes designs to create new marine routes to connect China with the rest of the world.

- Industry news: Samsung Pay will be launched in China in March following Apple Pay. Samsung has reached a deal with China UnionPay regarding the mobile payment business in China last December. Currently, two local mobile payment systems have taken up 89.1% of the total third-party payment business: Alipay is 69.9% and Tenpay is 19.2%. Unlike the Apple Pay or Samsung Pay, the two Chinese local apps provide deposit functions which have taken away part of traditional banks’ business. Thus, Chinese commercial banks and China UnionPay have incentive to cooperate with Apple Pay and Samsung Pay which will help to increase their credit and debit card transaction volume. On one hand, China’s fast developing e-commerce industry with companies such as Alibaba has been providing growth momentum to the country. On the other, when e-commerce firms are entering the banking business, they challenge the traditional banks which are already busy dealing with bad debt and other issues.
