During Chairman Frank Ning’s lecture, he elaborated on internationalized corporate operation from the perspectives of international thinking, international strategy, international talent and international standards.
Chairman Frank Ning pointed out that internationalization is an unavoidable trend of the enterprise and a living environment that must be faced. Initiative should be taken to embrace and integrate into the process of it. Enterprises that want to go international need to develop long-term strategies, having in place business models in line with international practice. A genuine good enterprise is competitive both at home and abroad. Internationalization of enterprises calls for core international personnel. Talents are the foundation of the internationalization process. Language is not the only measure of the internationally talented people. A good internationalized person should have good values, strong market-oriented management ability and rich business experience. Chairman Frank Ning emphasized that the measure of whether an enterprise is internationalized or nor is not how much asset it owns or how many outlets it has. Instead, it is the good products and high-quality services provided to the international market that counts.
