Back for a New Beginning

HK International Airport

Sitting in a restaurant looking out to the runways. Cathay Pacific beckoning for my future wallet-share.

Sitting in a restaurant at the Hong Kong International Airport right now. In front of me is a row of window panes giving access to a panorama view of the runways. Flanking me are the tails of the many Boing 747’s engraved with the brush stroke signature of Cathay Pacific. I feel like I am “back” – but to where? The developed cities give me something that I cannot feel when I am in China – freedom. The ability to think and act freely and to have full access to every single type of resource. Openness – that is what makes this view of the runways so beautiful.

It sure feels good to have free access to the internet again. The past month in China has been rather painful without access to some of my primary daily online tools. As such, I was unable to use this blog to track the progress of the delegation at all.
The GCC Winter Delegation in Beijing from Jan. 4-15th has been the most educational trip I have ever attended. Beyond a series of tours to corporate offices and headquarters, it got me thinking a lot about the economic growth and development of China, and the ways in which one can position oneself to take advantage of the opportunities that lie within. There is simply too much to talk about, to reflect upon, to remember – least we forget this valuable experience.
