Global Strategies

Assistance in International Investment and Trade

The accelerating trade and investment flows of the global economy offer unparalleled opportunities to firms and organizations able to effectively operate in this rapidly changing environment. This is especially true for China and the East Asian economies, as U.S. firms invest and outsource in this dynamic area. With over two decades of international experience, focused especially in China and East Asia, Global Strategies offers assistance, on an advisory or project basis, to corporations, executives and public sector organizations to effectively meet the challenges of globalization through market/investment assessment and evaluation, cross cultural business training and coaching and international promotion and marketing.
