I was in Shenzhen, China while writing this post, which took about 45 minutes by train from Tsimshatsui in Kowloon. I was reading the Nanfang Daily newspaper and note some interesting Internet stats. China Internet population has surpassed 123 million, of which 29.5% go online in Internet bar. In China, Internet cafes are known as “網吧” (Internet bars).
There are now about 120,000 Internet bars in China, with about 40 million visitors daily. Wow, this is quite an impressive figure! I don’t have the stats for other countries. But it looks China is definitely the world’s top country in having internet bars or internet cafes.
I think this stats can tell a few things. First, China Internet population, which is now second in the world, will be increasing exponentially in the coming years, and will probably surpass USA within the next 5 years.
Secondly, China represents a huge eCommerce market with more Internet companies expanding to China, after eBay, Google, and including eOneNet. I think we have made the right decision to set up a company in Hong Kong, which serves as a window of opportunities for us to tap into the lucrative China market.
It looks like eOneNet is not just ranked No.1 Asia Internet marketing company by Google, we are establishing our position as really the leading Asia Internet marketing company, with our strong physical presence in China, Malaysia and Singapore, not just some marketing tag line or shameless self-promotion.
