Memoirs of a Trade Facilitator: The World Was My Oyster (Hardcover)
As increased attention is now being given to US-China and Pacific Rim relations, Memoirs of a Trade Facilitator stitches together real-life practices, skills, and experiences to pull back the domestic and foreign cultural trade curtain.
Memoirs of a Trade Facilitator reflects the author's belief that life is meant to be lived to its fullest. The book describes coincidental meetings, subsequent treks overseas, and cultural knowledge gained during his Pacific Rim tenure. A network of friendships, opportunities, and potential business ventures became accessible as the author's personal relationships expanded.
Unknown was the fact that his "trade certification" was a double-edged sword. He was often called a "foreign agent" involved in "industrial espionage." However, both sides used his insight for their own competitive advantage.
The author looks back on this once-in-a-lifetime experience, filled with exciting, energetic personalities, central at times to the inner workings of quasi-public/private entrepreneurship. While even today, the author's recollection may seem incredible.
