Briefly…Top Ten Tweets (From Numbers, Buzz Words & Bad Milk, To T2, “Xi’s the One”, & Expo Optimism)

Related entries: Business Issues, Corporate News, Economy, General, News, Services

This week’s update on last week’s news has an economic focus (more Q3 numbers, interest rates, risks, and 5-year planning). But to add some colour we also have “inclusive” buzz words (and a scandalous princeling), a very sour PR story from the already muddy milk industry. And, to prove that not everything is bad news, we also highlight opportunities in 2nd-tier cities, Xi being “the one”, and Expo’s 1m day. But just in case anyone thinks we are overly optimistic, we finish with (US-style) “swipe” and a “probe”…
