Being successful in business means you have to know your environment. You have to know what is currently going on, and do your best to assess the opportunities and challenges the future might bring. The global economy has made knowledge of the global environment a necessity, not a luxury. We must understand the global environment, markets, and players. Preparation does not guarantee success, but lack of preparation surely guarantees eventual failure.
Whatever you feel about China, you cannot ignore its farreaching influence. Some view China as a formidable competitor in the global marketplace.
