Discussing the Leading Business Issues in China
The word “Ganbei” (干杯) means “Cheers” and in a Chinese business context is a gesture often done to celebrate a new deal or partnership. Our program brings together guests with practical China and global experience to help our audience get a step closer to that next “Ganbei” moment.
We dive deep into China business topics with leading executives.
We talk with Cameron Johnson, Partner at Tidalwave and APAC Strategy Head at FAO Global. Cameron was the Asia General Manager at a leading carbon fiber company for 7 of his 20 years in China. On managing supply chain concentration risk and how digitally-powered manufacturing is helping give Chinese manufacturers a continued edge.
We are joined by Brian Fleming, Member at Miller & Chevalier and former DOJ attorney working on CFIUS cases. Brian and Art discuss the recent Executive Orders restricting the use of WeChat and TikTok and the ongoing discussions about a potential sale of TikTok and the concurrent CFIUS investigation.

Who We Are
Art Dicker is the Host of "Ganbei" and Jason Hu is the chief Advisor. Both are seasoned China business executives with a passion for producing high-quality business content that is both timely and useful.
We think a more patient, rational, and nuanced discussion is needed for a better understanding of global business issues today, and we hope to provide our audience an outlet for that in a world otherwise dominated by toxic social media rhetoric and a tendency to drift towards tabloid style media headlines. Our guests are primarily working professionals with practical experience on the ground dealing with difficult issues their companies or clients face, in contrast to other channels which often invite academic scholars or members of policy think tanks.
Each quarter we focus our discussion on a different business domain, such as e-commerce, digital marketing, talent recruiting and retention, finance, supply chain management or advanced manufacturing. We also have one-off interviews, regular opinion pieces from contributors, and roundtable panel discussions that cover the most pressing questions for China-related businesses today.
