Reply Link zhanglei 18 May 2013 at 10:13 The true challenge for a firm to go international is: what value you can add to the world and the profession! Scale does not mean much! Big and strong can only work in China, where the rule of law and the sense of equality are not strong enough for upholding a level platform for all the firms, small or big!

No wonder they blocked the deal. But this strategy is not sustainable and they will loose in the long term. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
