As I wrote last week, I attended a fantastic conference in New York … the 2008 Asian Leadership Summit where the CEO’s of leading global companies such as IBM, GE and HSBC discussed the importance of the markets in China and India.

This morning, I attended a Monte Jade event (the Washington, DC Chapter).   This organization, which focuses on science and technology, primarily in China, is another terrific organization.   This month’s event had three panels sessions … on VC’s, Entrepreneurs and Corporate M & A.

The event was packed full and there was excellent discussion and Q & A among the panelists and audience members.   Despite the down turn in the economy, there are definitely many, many outstanding business opportunities in both China and India.

I am going to become a member of Monte Jade and I encourage that that are interested in learning more about these opportunities to also consider joining the organization.
