Executive Insight is a quarterly summary filled with in-depth data and analysis relevant for our Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong networks, as well as an overall regional view to aid in your strategy planning. We've curated select Economist Intelligence content and added business insights to the analysis - to break down how they might affect your business.
We recently shared our Q4 Executive Insight deck for China. You can find it here. In this quarterly webinar we present this content and give you a chance to ask questions.
