The Caixin-Sinica Business Brief, episode 4


SupChina’s new weekly show with China’s leading business and financial news source.

Welcome to the fourth installment of the Caixin-Sinica Business Brief, a weekly podcast that brings you the most important business stories of the week from China’s top source for business and financial news. Produced by Kaiser Kuo of our Sinica Podcast, it includes a business news roundup, conversations with Caixin reporters and editors, and a selection of complete stories from the news.

This week, we look at China’s slumping PMI numbers, Apple’s sagging sales in China, and the biggest dust storm in Beijing in recent years. We also feature four stories from Caixin:

  • An IPO by popular hotpot chain Haidilao’s sister company
  • Migrant workers staying closer to home as wage disparities narrow
  • A hutong historian’s efforts to preserve the lore of Beijing’s beloved back alleys
  • China’s efforts to bring 22 fugitives now hiding abroad back to China to face trial
