    Ep. 102: Exploring Yunnan Province

    As China Business Cast we decided to spent more time on exploring areas in China that are less known. Less known does not mean there are no business opportunities. If you ever wonder why companies like Starbucks, Coca Cola and many other global corporations have offices in this beautiful province definitely listen to this episode. Besides business opportunities it also famous as a travel destination. Many people who visited this region got inspired and ended up staying there for a long time. An example of this is our today's guest. He is not only living in Yunnan in South-West China, but also very active in promoting the province in and outside China.

Good show, lots of potential.

Started listening to this show recently and came to know mike and co. were temporarily not available. That’s disappointing.

1) The show focuses on recent chinese startups like wechat, mobik, alipay, and jingdong which is all good, but it needs to expand to other areas like electric cars (byoton etc), drones(lots of them), mobile phones(xiaomi et al) etc. The guest speaker can be a chinese person who started a manufacturing company and the questions can be asked and translated. That would be interesting.
2) The hosts could also explore the laws and approvals needed for registering and starting a business. This could be done in parts with each part focusing on a different law/requirement for ex. Environmental regulations, infrastructure regulations.
3) Personal anecdotes are fine but stick to facts from reliable sources during the show. Wechat pay in Thailand is a real thing and was featured on nytimes/wsj. Whereas wechat in usa( for chinese tourists)is incorrect ( good idea for tourist operations though).
4) While sponsorship is hard it can be done by tying up with local electronics manufacturers and advertising their names and websites.
You guys are doing a great job. When you get the time start making new episodes from different locations (chongqing).

Keeps me connected

Outstanding podcast to keep connected to what is going on in the China business world. I live in the states and am responsible for overseeing my company's China business. Going to china a couple times a year isn't enough to stay up to speed. China Business Cast helps to maintain that connection.

Highly recommended

The hosts clearly understand the modern business climate in China and do a great job with the guests. It's helpful to hear from entrepreneurs at various sized companies, sharing their experience with this diverse and massive market.
