On the topic I am surprised to see the only large Chinese comoany in the
member list is Huawei, with none of large Chinese internet company,
including Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent, Sina, Netease participating in Unicode.
In associate member list there is a company named zhongyi but that link is
already 404ed...

What the UTC is looking for is commitments from major vendors. It is not
sufficient to join Unicode: we have members who are not major vendors of
emoji. And there are some major vendors that are not members.

"major": at one extreme clearly 1B DAUs qualifies, and at the other
extreme, 1K doesn't.
