Ο Πλουσιότερος Άνθρωπος της Κίνας Πάει Hollywood

Ο Wang Jianlin, ένας πρώην αξιωματικός του Κινεζικού Στρατού, και νυν πλουσιότερος άνθρωπος της Κίνας με περιουσία πάνω από 30 δις δολάρια, έχει κάνει πάρα πολλές επενδύσεις στο Hollywood, και έχει φτιάξει και ο ίδιος ένα μικρό Hollywood στην Κίνα. Στα εγκαίνια του Κινεζικού Hollywood πέταξαν στην Κίνα αστέρες του Hollywood όπως ο ιεροκήρυκας της προστασίας του περιβάλλοντος Λεονάρδος Dicaprio, ο Τζον Τραβόλτα, η Νικόλ Κίντμαν και άλλοι.

Πολλά μέλη του Κογκρέσου στις ΗΠΑ λένε ότι σκοπός του Wang Jianlin είναι να μεταφέρει την Κινεζική προπαγάνδα στον υπόλοιπο κόσμο, κάτι που ο ίδιος δεν αποδέχεται, και κάτι που δεν θέλουν να ακούνε ούτε για αστείο οι εταιρείες του Hollywood. Το τελευταίο του κατόρθωμα είναι ότι κούνησε 1 δις δολάρια στην μούρη της Walt Disney, της Paramount, της 20th Century Forx, και της Universal.

Για να καταλαβαίνουμε γιατί τα έργα του Hollywood είναι τόσο αντιαμερικανικά και τόσο προπαγανδιστικά. Και σε αυτά που είπα βάλτε και τις τεράστιες επενδύσεις του Κατάρ στο Hollywood και πάει λέγοντας. Όσο και να σας φαίνεται περίεργο οι αστέρες του Hollywood είναι υπάλληλοι άλλων χωρών. Και το ίδιο ισχύει και για τους Αμερικανούς ακαδημαϊκούς, οι οποίοι όπως όλοι οι ακαδημαικοί παραπονιούνται ότι κακούργο το κράτος δεν τους δίνει αρκετά για την έρευνα τους, και παίρνουν μεγάλες επιδοτήσεις από ξένες χώρες. Τα κάστρα του Bernie Sanders ήταν το Hollywood και η Αμερικανική Ακαδημία.

His response to criticism from a member of Congress that Wanda, after a spectacular $8 billion shopping spree in Hollywood, is a propaganda threat and should be subject to more Justice Department scrutiny? It is “not like we are invading,” Mr. Wang said, contending that Wanda’s goal involves “helping” American film companies “to get more market share in the emerging movies market that is China.” (And, of course, making money for Wanda along the way.)
Mr. Wang, visiting California to unveil sizable financial incentives aimed at wooing American productions to Wanda’s new $5 billion studio complex in China, went on to call himself an “angel” investor. He noted that Wanda had purchased struggling companies like AMC Theaters and Legendary Entertainment — “the best companies would not sell to us” — and strengthened them. AMC’s stock price, for instance, has risen 64 percent since Wanda bought it for $2.6 billion in 2012.
But what about concerns that Wanda is moving aggressively in Hollywood as part of a move by the Communist Party to control the portrayal of China on screen? Mr. Wang, who noted that Wanda was focused on entertainment “profit” 14 times during a 40-minute interview, said storytelling decisions by American studios in relation to China, with or without Wanda ownership, were about maximizing returns at the fast-growing Chinese box office.
More Chinese elements mean more Chinese profits,” he said.
Mr. Wang arrived by private jet over the weekend to wrap up Wanda’s latest acquisition — the company is buying Dick Clark Productions for about $1 billion — and dangle an enormous carrot in front of Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, Paramount, Universal and Walt Disney. Wanda and the Qingdao municipal government have established a major incentive program to lure movie and TV production to the 408-acre Qingdao Movie Metropolis.

Mr. Wang, a spry former military officerwho is said to be China’s richest man, said he hoped that an additional $3 billion in Qingdao amenities — “international hospitals, international schools, yacht clubs, hotels, shopping” — would make American stars and marquee directors more willing to spend months at a time working there. “Like going on a vacation” is how he described it.

Los Angeles has film studios and the best-known movie industry award ceremonies. Orlando has amusement parks and resort hotels. Now, one of China’s richest men wants to copy them with a movie-themed real estate development in his country’s most fashionable beach city.
Wang Jianlin, who is chairman of Dalian Wanda Group and reputed to be China’s wealthiest investor, announced plans on Sunday for the Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis. Costing from $4.9 billion to $8.2 billion, it would encompass film studios, resort hotels, an indoor amusement park, movie theaters with up to 3,000 seats and even a hospital.
Stars like Nicole Kidman, John Travolta, Leonardo DiCaprio and Zhang Ziyi, among others, showed up on Sunday at a ceremony in Qingdao for the development, which Mr. Wang billed as a sign of China’s effort to become the world leader in yet another industry: filmmaking.
Dalian Wanda purchased AMC Entertainment for $2.6 billion in a deal last year that signaled China’s biggest splash yet in the American movie market.
“It is estimated that China’s film box office revenue will surpass North America’s by 2018 and will double it by 2023 — that is why I believe the future of the world’s film industry is in China,” Mr. Wang said, according to a text of his remarks.
Dalian Wanda will build a series of movie sound sets, and has reached preliminary agreements with four of the biggest Hollywood movie agent businesses to help negotiate contracts with actors and actresses for the production of 30 foreign movies a year, Mr. Wang said. It is also planning deals with 50 domestic companies for the production of 100 films and television shows a year.

In the last five years, local governments changed tack at the direction of Beijing and began offering nearly free land either downtown or in inner suburbs to renewable energy companies. That has helped produce a huge surge in the production of solar panels and wind turbines, as China has become by far the largest manufacturer of both.

He controls thousands of movie screens around the world, serving more filmgoers than any other cinema chain. He has invested billions of dollars in real estate projects across four continents. He is building skyscrapers that will redraw the skylines of London and Chicago. He is shopping for a Hollywood studio.
There are as many as 430 billionaires in China, more than in any country besides the United States. But Wang Jianlin stands out, and not just because he is the richest person in Asia, with a fortune estimated at more than $35 billion.
As his real estate and entertainment empire expands overseas, Mr. Wang, 60, has emerged as the rare private-sector tycoon in a position to advance Beijing’s interests abroad, with clout in industries and communities around the world.
Prime ministers send him thank-you notes, and Hollywood’s biggest stars fly to China when he summons them. In March, at an event to woo foreign investors, he was one of only a dozen businessmen to meet President Obama.

“Renewable energy in China”,
China’s renewable energy sector is growing faster than its fossil fuels and nuclear power capacity. In 2015 China became world's largest producer ofphotovoltaic power, at 43 GW installed capacity.[1][2] China also led the world in the production and use of wind power and smart grid technologies, generating almost as much water, wind, and solar energy as all of France and Germany's power plants combined.
Whilst China has the world's largest installations of solar and wind power its energy needs are so great that in 2013 renewables provided just a little over 20% of its power generation, with most of the remainder provided by traditional coal power facilities.[3] Nevertheless, the share of renewables in the energy mix had been gradually rising from 2013 and targets from 2015 onwards have represented a step change in ambition. The next few years will demonstrate whether these ambitious targets can be delivered. As of the end of 2015 the world leading countries in wind power by installations (although the USA generated slightly more wind power at 190 TWh as of 186.3 TWh in China)[4] were: 1. China 2. Usa 3. Germany 4. India 5. Spain and 6. UK, and in solar power installations: 1. China 2. Germany 3. Japan. 4. United States 5. Italy and 6. UK.
