Newsletter: Can We Get 5 Year Work Permits in China Now?

Dear Global Business Enthusiast,

Michael Michelini (@michelini) here. You’re getting this email because you requested my periodic thoughts on international business from Hong Kong.

[Edit: Actually, it’s possible that you’ve never gotten an email from me. Somebody might have just given you the link to this page, which is an online archive of an email that I sent to folks who had asked for it. If you’d like to get articles like this in your inbox, totally free, about once a week or two, give me your email address.]

Want to join us for a pre-Cross Border Summit event? Monico Chao couldn’t make it to speak at the Summit, and will be doing a webinar with us instead on April 6 9am China time – it’s free, signup today

I am just so excited about how the community here at Global From Asia has been growing. Or maybe it’s just the weather is finally heating up and I’m so excited and happy feeling-like (excuse my Chinglish lol)

Yo! Shenzhen is in this List! And Hong Kong takes the top seat! Guanzhou is in there too somehow!
