This year’s Global Service and Cooperation Investment & Exploratory Delegation, consisting of near 80 delegates from more than 70 off-shore enterprises, and is the largest one compared to the previous years; with delegates from countries and regions such as U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K., India and Japan. The delegation covered the widest range of areas; with delegates from famous global outsourcing organizations setting a new high-profile record. Cooperation projects brought by the delegation involved IT, financial services, High-Tech manufacturing industry, R&D, animation productions and software design. This year set the record of the gold content of cooperative intention.
The overall Great-Idea program included being hosted by three state governments, meeting mayors and party secretary-generals. In addition, there were a variety of activities were exciting from conferences that included discussion sessions, but a banquet and tours of industrial parks. The time in China was an opportunity for us of the Seraph group to learn on the ground about the opportunities in China. There is still much to absorb of our time in China, voluminous information and material that will keep most of us occupied in reflection. However, many of us who have had an opportunity to discuss our time in China admit that the time spent in China was time well spent. We realize that sharing our experiences are critical for future endeavors and so like the photo album on Photobucket has been established. Also, one idea is to consider producing a onetime trip publication and so I’ve started this blog as a way to gather the stories and implement a way to capture our experiences and share them with each other. I will send an email to our group that gives permission to post your stories here on the blog. This will be a central location that will allow us to stay in touch until our next social dinner.
Your ideas, suggestions or comments are welcomed. This blog is “ours” and should represent “us.” I am excited about hearing how we each experienced China and how we see China for our future.—Inessa Obenhuber
