Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) will host a free lecture April 9 on the power of personal observation in reviewing business opportunities – just one tool that businesses must use in order to be successful.
Andy Wong, MHCC instructor, will present “India Incorporated versus China Incorporated: A Personal Journey,” noon – 1 p.m. in Town & Gown (Room AC2057) on the Gresham Campus, 26000 S.E. Stark St. Wong’s presentation is open to students, MHCC employees and the community. Parking is free on all MHCC campuses, no permit required.
“The impact of India and China on the global economy is growing,” Wong says. “As international businesses increase their activities in both countries, there is a need for more knowledge about how to do business in each one. While much is written about these two countries, wise businesses must also do their research in person.” Wong travelled to India and China in January while on sabbatical.
Wong’s presentation is part of MHCC’s Worldview lecture series, and will explore environmental issues, infrastructure, entrepreneurship, consumer behavior and other cultural and political factors that impact a business’s ability to succeed in these markets.
