We’re back from the holiday and the year is off to an exciting start already.

–Local governments are running innovative programs to attract global tech and entrepreneurial talent in Beijing and in the provinces.  
–China Daily on the challenges Western multinationals have recruiting talent in China in competition with local companies. If this is a problem you are dealing with, hit reply and let’s talk. 
–Interesting piece from Bloomberg on how technology is facilitating Chinese holiday traditions and their unique use cases.
