China shares the GMT+8 time zone with Mongolia, North Korea, Brunei, Malaysia, the central part of Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines. This makes GMT+8 easily the most populous time zone on the planet.
I chose GMT+8 as the name for the successor blog to Sibuxiang because it defines the time zone I have lived in for nearly 40 years. A time zone is in many respects one important aspect of the vantage point from which we see and interpret things.
GMT+8 is not only the most populous time zone on the globe, but it also boasts the highest economic growth rates for the past generation-plus. By those two standards alone, it is a time zone the rest of the world should be paying attention to, and deepening their understanding of.
I hope you enjoy it and look forward to your feedback.
