Chinese like it hot in the south…
Greetings from southern China!
We’re in city #2 of the our 3 city swing. Courtesy of the Foreign Experts Bureau, in conjunction with the Yunnan University of Finance and Economics, we had our 2nd seminar today. It was extremely well attended and simulcast in two adjoining banquet rooms due to the overflow. One of the regional TV stations even covered the event. We have company visits over the next few days and then are headed to Shanghai.
The temperature is warmer and food spicier. It’s great to see the difference in questions, too, between here and our colleagues in Beijing.
Check out the 30 second video they wanted to me to shoot– a Chinese self introduction– for the TV interview.
