Beyond the Headlines
Perhaps you're feeling negative about China right now? It's understandable for you to be concerned with all the negative media coverage, the global geo-politics, the Covid crisis and the deteriorating US-China trade relationship. I am very aware of all of these issues, and I talk about them regularly in my daily China Bites.
But I am also looking to the future and the economic fallout from Covid, and I'm helping business leaders and entrepreneurs reach out to chinese consumers, investors and partners to tap into China's enormous potential (see China has the MONEY and the MARKET) which will enable them to prosper in China in the future.
There's never been a better time for entrepreneurial business leaders to consider their options in China - I'm here to support them with the ideas, knowledge, experience and connections.
