In The Art of War, Sun Tzu tells us, “In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.” Approaching the markets in Asia, this holds true especially well.

Earlier this week we came back from our almost-three-weeks trip to Asia. Visiting China, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Thailand gave us a lot of new insight about the contemporary issues in these countries. During the trip we organized a 9 days study tour with 18 Finnish business professionals. The tour was part of the Asian business training program, organized together with Turku University of Applied Sciences and the Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment of Turku. With the delegation, we visited Finnish and Chinese factories and companies, met university and city government officials and heard lectures from Finnish entrepreneurs who have been successful in China and Hong Kong.

Due to the strict censorship in China (that is actually getting more strict than before), we weren’t able to update our blog nor the social media on site, but we are eager to share these stories during the summer in our blog and in Linkedin and Twitter! So if you are interested what is happening in China and Hong Kong at the moment, stay tuned also from your summer cottages.
