There is no national healthcare in China, so only wealthy people will get it anyway. China is a bundle of human rights abuses and aggressive foreign policy and let me tell you that every major international company with substantial China operations or ties right now is dealing with an incredible problem right now. Almost everyone is moving out. Japan is paying its companies billions of dollars to transfer out. The Hong King mess, the Uighurs, it’s a serious problem. They are muscling in on the territories of their neighbors. North Korea would not exist without China’s implicit support and China will likely effectively annex that country. It’s just used as a buffer. Meanwhile millions of Koreans suffer incredible harm. China has become an incredible bully that pretends to be a victim. It is creating debt traps around the world with it’s New Silk Road initiative. Most of these projects are not truly for the benefit of the countries involved, they are giant white elephants that keep the circus going on China. The money never leaves China. They send their own workers, they build what they claim are commercial ports in these countries, at their expense, but they are really China’s future naval bases. Look at Disney. They have enmeshed themeselves there with Shanghai Disney, they are trying so hard they just made a propaganda film for China with no real payoff. They are just trying to stay in the good graces of China’s President for life, Xi. Rather than democratizing the country, all of the investment and transfers of know how have entrenched an oppressive regime. Better to go to Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore and all the surrounding prosperous countries before getting entangled in that nightmarish mess that China is becoming rapidly. If they remove Xi and go back to trying to be a better country, sure. But right now, it’s a fools errand to focus on China. That would especially be true of an incredibly tiny company such as this one, with no influence or power to defend itself. I am sure Dr. Liau understands the situation perfectly well. I doubt this is driven by her anyway, but I doubt she would press for this kind of move anymore than any other American looking at a tiny company like this that is still in its early years. China is a powder keg. They violate international sanctions at will. And when caught, they play tot for tat arresting random important executives in China, and expelling foreign journalists. Even Germany is finding China’s behavior bullying and unacceptable. This is not a uniquely US perspective. There are so many current stories and anecdotes of China acting consistently badly right now, but we had taught ourselves to look away because of all the money they were throwing around, but money can’t compensate for a lack of laws that are enforceable if you’re not Chinese.
