In this episode of Pacific Dialogue, Beijing Review invites a China expert from the United States to share his two decades of experience in the Chinese market.
Michael is the vice president of China/Asia Pacific strategy and global digital practices at Tompkins International. He is also the author of China's Super Consumers and a regular columnist for Beijing Review.
From wandering around China, raising pigs and making clothes on the factory floor to business consultancy and helping foreign brands, retailers, investors and service providers enter the country, Michael's career has progressed in tandem with China's recent economic development.
As someone with a front row seat for one of the greatest development stories in history, Michael has witnessed China's transformation from the world's factory to its largest consumer market.
