In doing this you will interact with and further develop your networks with business leaders from Western China. To be successful you will need to be comfortable discussing both distribution strategies with a food producer, and licensing strategies with a technology company. You will have a thorough understanding of business in West China, and most importantly you will know what it takes for a foreign business to succeed.
