Why An Entrepreneur in Asia? Consider the following: China is currently the fastest growing consumer economy in Asia, and It is and the second largest world economy. (That's no typo, it is the second largest world economy.)
In addition to China, other Asian economies are continuing to grow and expand their manufacturing operations. Collectively, the Southeast Asian and the China region offers a population of over 1.5 billion consumers, workers, and managers and is continuing to grow. Most Asian governments are stable and pro-business, and all are actively seeking foreign investment from companies like yours.
But how do you go about it? How do you wrangle the proper paperwork, travel time, cultural differences, language barriers, and political land mines that are inherent in doing business overseas?
To whom do you turn for help? Whom can you trust in a foreign land? Look no further, Irl Davis has been there and done that, and now he shares his expertise in his new book, An Entrepreneur in Asia.
The An Entrepreneur in Asia also shares with readers the local customs that might trip them up if they're not properly informed and contains numerous personal anecdotes that are written in Irl Davis's no-nonsense style.
Isn't it time you considered doing business in Asia? When you do, An Entrepreneur in Asia is your guidebook...
