27 Jun Culture Dictates Chinese Attitude Towards Privacy, Top Professor Argues
Dr. Zhang Weining, an associate professor at Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business, recently remarked that the Chinese people do not care much about privacy since it is an alien concept to them.
He argued that culture in the country makes it common, particularly for older people, to ask others about every detail in their lives.
Zhang added that people are more preoccupied in chasing wealth of just staying out of poverty instead of being concerned about their privacy. The Chinese are therefore, more concerned about convenience that services such as mobile payments, ride-hailing, and messaging provide.
