We’ve all heard the hype, we know it’s different than what we’re used to, but can we boil it down to some basic concepts about doing business internationally in Asia, meaning China, Japan and other Pacific rim nations?
This last Global Forum for 2012 will bring a lively interactive discussion about doing business in Asia as well as with Asian based companies.
