Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
150 in-depth interviews of CEOs, Communications Directors, corporate board members and other top officials at major companies throughout the US was conducted.
The following question was asked:
Does your company have business interests in China or are your planning to expand your business there, or do you have no plans to do business in China?
More than half 51% say they have no interest or plans to do business in China.
A little more than one-third (37%) say they already are doing business there.
Another one in 12 (8%) say they are planning to do business in China.
A small 4% said, “Uh, where’s China?” They were not sure.
Not all businesses need to go to China. At least half of American business leaders think theirs is one business does not need to?
Is half too many or too little?
What do you think?
These survey results were taken from a poll conducted by the Committee of 100.
The Committee of 100 is a national, nonpartisan organization composed of prominent American citizens of Chinese descent. The members of this group pool their resources to address important issues that concern the Chinese/American community but, Imho, more importantly, foster better US-Greater China relations.
Recently, this group asked the polling firm ZOGBY to conduct an extensive survey of American Attitudes Toward China.
They polled the General Population (General Public) as well as Chinese Americans. Business leaders, Opinion leaders and Congressional staffers, subsets of the general public were also polled.
In keeping with the Committee of 100 ideas, I hope it will create discussion and be used to better understand U.S.-China relations and help those concerned to formulate recommendations on how to improve relationships between these two great countries.
