Regardless of your experience level in international business, chances are you’ve considered or are doing business in Asia. With continued negotiation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the importance of Asia’s markets — and its billions of consumers — continues to grow.  This session will specifically focus on the market opportunities, negotiating from a cultural and legal perspective, and first-hand accounts of overcoming the obstacles of doing business in China, Japan, Indonesia and Vietnam.  Join us for a dynamic panel discussion among experienced business practitioners active in Asia who will share their experiences and expertise in developing and executing a strategic approach to these important markets for Wisconsin companies.
