MEDIA REVIEWS

'By default, China has become the world's banker'. This is a quote which sums up the global revolution we are all living through. This book explores the remarkable rise to domination by China and how it affects us all today. It is readable, authoritative and a fascinating account of a force in the world which cannot be ignored.' - Rt Hon Lord Robertson of Port Ellen, KT GCMG honFRSE PC

''Our firm has traded with China for almost two centuries. To remain successful it is necessary to look beyond the variables of the day to the constancy of historical patterns. China Counting takes those patterns, presents an engaging perspective on modern China and puts a global interpretation on its future direction.' - Sir Henry Keswick, Chairman, Jardine Matheson Holdings Limited''

'This book explains how China's historical values focus on the need for knowledge. It is easy to see every day the Chinese commitment to academic, educational, and technological advancement. Unilever funds several initiatives in China that relate to education, including the formation of over twenty "Hope Schools" in needy communities. We particularly endorse the following from China Counting 'The most productive step that Western companies can now take is to offer work experience and jobs to young Chinese graduates'. This year we will do our bit by employing around 50 new Management Trainees selected from 31,000 applicants!' - Alan Jope, Chairman, Unilever Greater China

'Chinese business decisions are dependent on international and domestic forces, reflecting our corporate focus on facilitating hybrid strategies. China Counting, in extending the arguments made in China Calling, emphasises the need for constructive engagement. As a help for those dealing with Chinese global expansion both books make thought- provoking reading.' - Dave Heddle, Managing Director, Coverdale Management Consulting Company Limited, China''
