Corrs Partner & CEO John W.H. Denton participated in the first Asialink Business Visit to Myanmar from 23-26 May 2012.
The trip gave delegates firsthand experience of the economic transition and industrial development taking place in the region.
“Look at a map of Asia, and the pivotal importance of Myanmar glares at you”, says John W.H. Denton. “This is not only a large, resource-rich country. It provides a wide and obvious bridge between western China and the Indian Ocean.”
John was a part of a 27-member business delegation arranged by Asialink in conjunction with the Hong Kong General Chamber (HKGC).
