Global trade is experiencing volatile times yet excellent business opportunities continue to develop in East Asia.
With these opportunities also come risks: how do you validate your prospective business partners and once you have confirmed they are a good match, how do you communicate effectively with them to ensure your business relationship develops well?
This program will provide concrete advice on screening East Asian companies and interacting appropriately with them so you can maximize your commercial potential. Our speakers are experts in their respective fields:
