The chapter begins with a summary of all the chapters. It then moves to the presentation of speculations on the future leadership of global mobilities. China seems to emerge as the new leading core for global mobilities, within the wider leading continental core of Asia-Pacific. China’s seniority was noted in the previous chapters for the mobilities of commodities and people, along with its emerging leadership for the mobilities of finance and technology. It seems that China’s governmental controlling is and will be the Chinese ‘flavor’ for the twenty-first-century wave of globalization, and this goes hand in hand with the desire of China for leadership in global mobilities. Chinese direct governmental involvement may constitute a kind of ‘big brother’ supervision for some mobilities, prevailing side by side with an additional, indirect and sometimes merely potential Chinese surveillance and control for other mobilities.
