Shenzhen Weekly Round Up – Mar 27: Vaccine Approved! Banking on the Travel Boom & Some Chat-GPT Tips

Now Shenzhen   |   March 27, 2023

Dear Shenzhen-er,

On the Global stage Israel is in the spotlight over it's latest round of protests, ripples continue following the closure of SVB and Signature Bank, the international community continues to mull over their collective response to the world's most infamous diminutive Russian and Mississippi was hit with a tornado.

Nationally here the only news of significance noted this week, aside from the expected rhetoric about the strong recovery of the nation, is the announcement of approval of the new China-grown mRNA vaccine, and a brief piece outlining where investors are placing their bets to take advantage of the boom in the travel sector. If you've any doubt, just ask any of your friends that have traveled through Bao'an airport this past few months, they can attest to the reality of that trend.

Lastly, here's a little bonus piece from Wired on how to take even more advantage of our current AI heartthrob - Chat-GPT

Congratulation and thanks to Residence G on the celebration of their 6th anniversary in Shenzhen. Thanks for graciously inviting us. Despite the rain, the 1920's French themed event was quite an enjoyable spectacle to behold. Congratulations on Havana Bar opening down in Shekou last Friday.

Lot's coming up this week - for some stand-up mid-week giggles you may want to check out King's bar tomorrow. Stay tuned to our event page - your aspiring one-stop source for what's going on around town!

Have a Fabulous (looking to be mostly wet) week out there folks!
