Asian Sources Launches Mainland Chinese Web Site

Trade information provider Asian Sources has launched its first interactive Web site in simplified Chinese, Chief Executive China Online.

The new site focuses on the needs of China's growing business elite in a complementary format to the print edition, Asian Sources Chief Executive China.

"Currently, there are 2.1 million Internet users in China and this number is growing according to the China Internet Information Center," said Mark Saunderson, publisher of Chief Executive China.

"To meet this demand, international search engines such as Sohoo and Yahoo! have opted to localize their formats using simplified Chinese which survey results demonstrate have proven advantages over foreign formats," continued Saunderson

"At the end of the day, Chief Executive China Online is more than a comprehensive read. It is Asia's most sophisticated business-to-business online resource and management tool," remarked Saunderson.

Interactive features of the site include a 'management clinic,' which is a virtual community hosted by a rotating set of world-class Chinese speaking management strategists.

It permits users to ask questions about significant management problems and to view these answers and others on a regular basis.

Also included on the site are management resources offering management editorial content and a bilingual search engine.

There are links to other Internet sites containing information on MBA programs, management training events and seminars in and outside China, as well as links to international management consultancies.
