Since Chinese president Xi Jinping became the top leader of China in 2012, he put forward two ambitious initiatives of his era: "Chinese Dream" and "One Belt One Road". Obviously since 2018 Mr. Xi is going to push these two initiatives faster forward in his next 5 years office time. Are we Finnish and Western businessmen ready for this?

"The whole day was handled with superb professionalism. I took part in the workshop because I wanted to review and update my knowledge from since 20 years ago and also get a vantage point to experiences from my more recent business trips. Particularly relevant to my interests was the exploration of the economic background of the People's Repulic of China and how traditional Chinese philosophies come through in practice in everyday life.
Päivän ohjelma oli hoidettu erinomaisella rutiinilla ja kokonaisuus oli varmoissa, kokeneissa käsissä. Halusin kerrata ja päivittää tietojani, joista vanhimmat ovat 20 vuoden takaa, mutta myös verrata viimevuotisiin, tuoreempiin kokemuksiin parilta liikematkalta. Erityisen ansiokkaana, itselleni tarpeellisena pidin Kiinan Kansantasavallan talouselämän taustan selvittämistä sekä perinteisten filosofioiden heijastumista toimintaan käytännössä."
"The workshop was very productive. Erlin was able to summarise a lot of his experiences on the special characteristics of Western and Chinese cultures in just one day. Actually, there was so much content in the course that it could've easily covered another full day. I can heartily recommend joining!"
"Työpaja oli antoisa. Erlin pystyi tiivistämään yhteen päivään paljon omaa kokemustaan kiinalaisen ja länsimaisten kulttuurien eri piirteistä, toinenkin päivä olisi mennyt helposti. Tätä kurssia voi suositella!"
"The training gave a good picture of how Chinese personality and way of thinking differs from Finnish. A great part of the workshop was also the discussion of practical issues other participants had faced when doing business with the Chinese."
"Koulutus antoi hyvän kuvan siitä, miten kiinalainen persoona ja ajatusmaailma eroaa suomalaisesta. Varsin hyvä osa koulutusta oli kuulla, keskustella ja saada ohjeistusta käytännön kokemuksista kiinalaisten kanssa."
