Welcome to Global From Asia, episode 134 – I’m recording after an amazing “Cross Border Trip” – first of its kind this past Friday with a bit over 20 amazing business people based in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Zhuhai, and more! Amazing people like Chris Davey and Benjamin May attended and it was a full day of touring Qianhai Free Trade Zone in Shenzhen, seminars, and networking. We will do more of these day trips on the regular – so check out globalfromasia.com/crossbordertrips for upcoming ones.
