China Visas In Hand
It's official: Our Global Gains team will be heading back for another research trip to China in July. We have the visas, the flights, and even some of the meetings already booked.
While I don't have all of the details yet, one focus of this year's trip will be rural China, with stops in Shaanxi province, Inner Mongolia, and Heilongjiang provinces. That's because we believe the opportunities here are significant given the government's recent commitment to raise rural incomes. Further, if you've read Yasheng Huang's book Capitalism with Chinese Characteristics, then you know that the rural entrepreneur in China is the most entrepreneurial Chinese entrepreneur of all (I hope you stayed with me there).
As always, our real-time reports from the field will be free to anyone who signs up, though you'll have to join Global Gains in order to get full, vetted write-ups on our best ideas at the end of the trip. More information forthcoming on how to get those free dispatches, and I hope you'll join us in China.
