    Our Mission

    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.

     

    Ganbei!
