The Digital War in China, and the Opportunity for Australians

With more than 800 million internet users and 750 million mobile internet users, China has by far the largest population of "netizens" on the planet.

With more than 100 trillion yuans ($20 trillion AUD) in mobile transactions every year, China also leads all countries in transaction volume on mobile.

What's more astonishing is that, whilst the number of netizens increased by 12% in 2017, the mobile transactions increased by 95% in the same period.

The main reasons?

A positive change in user behaviour and habits, thanks to data technology.

Data technology has changed people's lives in China, and could change the lives of Australian businesses in various ways.
