The scale of the problem calls for a closer look at Ground Zero –the Hubei province. At $595 billion, the province made up about 4 percent of China’s GDP in 2018. Note that the Hubei province is an important center for industries such as metallurgy, automobiles, chemicals and optical electronics. The city of Wuhan constitutes about 1 percent of China’s global trade dynamics – both exports and imports.

The devil lies in details of these schemes. These schemes make it difficult to prepay the loans. For the Axis schemes, although you can partly pre-pay your home loans, your loan tenure should not fall before your first waiver (fourth year in the Shubh Arambh option and 10th year in the Fast Forward scheme) becomes due. For instance, you shouldn’t pre-pay a large amount that reduces your loan tenure to three years and 11 months for Shubh Arambh and nine years 11 months for the Fast Forward scheme.

Consider a modern laptop computer—svelte and portable—and you can easily imagine the expertise and effort that went into its design and creation. But what about its larger desk-bound cousin, the desktop workstation? It might be surprising to learn that building a state-of-the-art DWS—still the workhorse of many an office—is the result of an equally rigorous design process. In fact, as Al Makley, director of workstation development at Lenovo, puts it, his designers know “not to design in a vacuum” when re-imagining a product that is already well defined by its existing architecture. “One trap design teams fall into is exemplifying their own creative concepts as to how products should look and should be designed, without confirmation from the customers,” he says. In other words, even when designing world-class computers, the customer’s voice matters, and all Lenovo teams know and practice this critical, simple rule. … [Read more...] about Thinking inside the box: How Lenovo is reimagining the desktop workstation
