Courtesy of the good folk at TTG Asia who asked me for a few years to make presentations about association management at their events in Asia I have been fortunate to see the sights of some truly great cities such as Shanghai. The vision below is from 2014. I should imagine much has changed since then. It is a city that just keeps growing. In 2014 it was already starting to make a transition from noisy petrol driven scooters to electric bikes and scooters. I often wonder what the impact of electric vehicles will have on those noisy, smelly Asian cities I have had the privilege of enjoying as a visitor. Media reports were that the COVID pandemic wreaked havoc in Shanghai - from COVID-19 itself and from the way zero infection strictures were enforced. I imagine that will have a lasting impact on this great City.
