San Francisco, September 4 (People's Daily Online) -- "If you are an American doing business and you are concerned about the future of the world, then engaging with and learning about China is the most important thing you can do." So says David Perry, a China business consultant who spoke with People's Daily Online reporter in a recent exclusive interview.
Perry is the founder and CEO of David Perry & Associates, Inc. (www.davidperry.com), a San Francisco based firm specializing in marketing, communications, social media and government affairs.
