Introducing new Centre for International Perspectives: focusing on heart of international scenario Milan Expo 2015

As advisor for companies that are really looking towards international dimension to relaunch their businesses I’m pretty familiar with the importance that such dynamics on operating as international player can represent for development and production of SME.

Then, if we’re talking about italian contingent situation, in particular if we consider the perspective that actually productive policies and central executive government and local administration are providing for the common good of our national economic players, I think that immediately you’ll agree with me about the high value’s content that it could be represented by introducing free and inter structured platform among sector-operators and professionals to boost international effects into national markets, always looking forward to provide cross-social education and training about the meaning of such involvement for well framed comparison managed on international scenario.

international perspectives

Just concrete needs to build up network of efficient players that will make on sharing tools, vision and cooperation to develop diversified projects that will concern the relaunch of sectors, territories and marketing strategies on international dimension: welcome to C.U.P.I – Centre for Union of International Perspectives.

Analysis and research activities to boost training opportunities and educational platform for social aims. Such activity represents concrete base to improve social participation and civil involvement into international dynamics

 Where does it operate?

C.U.P.I. represents a long time highly “felt” and discussed project. As working board among professionals and organizations, it takes place in Milan and it embraces operators almost from the area Padano – Veneta, but it is already collecting energies and proposals from foreign partners and associations. In particular the Association that I manage as President and Director, Asian Studies Group well represents the cross cultural “soul” which we want to approach for example operators from East Asia – In tight connection we have already introduced the activity of EU Networking Centre in Japan from Kobe, and some consulting companies that operates on internationalization’s of SME on foreign markets, both EU and not EU markets. In particular in Bologna we are already working hard with Internazionalizza S.r.l. for that concerns some companies in that area and they are approaching Japan, China and Korea,  and recently we’ve started to collect some contributions and proposals from GN Lex – legal firm with hq in Milan and operative branch in Shanghai. In Milan we well know the activity of CMEX China Milan Equity Exchange and Carone and Partners Legal firm which we’re used to consult frequently for some issues in behalf of our C.U.P.I.’s members. Recently we’re also cooperating with AITA – International Association for development of Advanced Technologies with hq in Rome with recent branch in Milan to assist some projects during Milan EXPO 2015.

In particular,  concrete board for cooperation in behalf of key local sectors during Milan EXPO 2015 is one of our first high working points which we’ve introduced recently the activity of our group. ‘Cause in Milan operators, associations, professionals and companies are already working towards right and effective mood for the international event, we think that some borders- area like Province of Lodi, Province of Pavia and Brescia, Bergamo, Monza etc (and I’m not talking about local administration as politic entities..) should create more intense network of projects to boost the opportunity the Expo will bring us towards their local operators and territories. That’s why, for example, recently we’ve presented to Lodi Export (consortium for development of  exporting opportunities for province or Lodi’s area) the proposal to join our discussion-group to focus on common aims for mutual benefit that international perspectives could bring to this area.

Business Culture in China: facing with new business model to approach opportunities with concrete tools

During last training that I managed for companies and managers I put on focus this fundamental: talking about China needs to consider this country as well framed system and well built structure that really can be introduced  as new business model for economic operators.

Recently I got opportunity to introduce macro economic elements, marketing strategy’s fundamentals, and geo-political issues about China during course issued in behalf of “Quadrifor” (special fund centered on didactic programs for managers)  to 11 italian managers involved into diversified business missions on chinese markets; the first consideration that came to light is about the perception which most of companies (not only SME but multinationals as well) are used to have for internationalization of their businesses: re-locating on new market is almost considered doing export. Obviously on this way it’s really difficult to understand why it’s important to recognize into “Chinese System” elements that need holistic vision and deep awareness of its features to get approached correctly.

First of all, also on doing export, we need to consider that nowadays as chinese market we’re talking about several different “chinas”: some areas are getting more familiar with financial sector’s liberalization (Shanghai and Beijing for ex) and others are receiving benefits from “go west” policy facing with sustainment for development of infrastructures and key – sectors (Chongqing). We well know that we cannot also introduce national logistic net of services for our business in China and entry strategy must be fixed with local analysis, social involvement on expenditures that is different according with contingent local situations and sub cultures.

The new middle class as representation of urban revolution just now is going to express specific identity through expenditures and consumptions and some disastrous operations got in the past well clarified how we cannot consider easily urban population like mature middle class about way of approaching towards consumptions and goods.

The VAT pilot reform is direct expression of system that wants to be balanced and boosted by market and dynamics about development of political reforms could be understood more with vision of market’s socialism than communist rhetoric. Also the last third session of plenum of communist party specified how the next step for glorious health of chinese nation will be represented by circular movement towards urban revolution: where Mao started with countryside’s revolution, Xi Jinping will end it  closing the circle with revolution that will involve countryside with urban development. Same class, same perspective, same salary, same conditions of being free with access to expenditures and consumptions. Giving back the land to the party the farmers will receive  reimbursement to allow them to start new life in urban societies (the plenum recognized how it’ll be crucial point to reassure farmers with high amount for the land they will give back to the system) and soon the abrogation of “one child only law” will represent a new beginning with stimulus towards high population’s society with more needs but also with more power and efforts on building up strong system and consumptions.

The education of new generation on respect for tradition, common values, national stability and central power will confirm the prosecution of glorious chinese nation on boosting features that will characterize chinese model as major power nation on international economic scenario.

So, after 16 hours of intensive training about such perspective that is involving quickly chinese system, when I asked to some professionals joined my course, what do they recognize as new perception about China, some of them replied as follows

Marco Migliorini , Marketing Manager: as half italian – swedish I’m really sensitive to cross cultural elements and pretty curious about their influence on business dynamics and negotiation’s steps; that’s why I found this training very useful ‘cause it introduced technical matters and contents using cultural lens to explain features and tricky point of system that beyond business fundamentals consist of people

Marina Masci,  Advisor: I confirmed my attendance to this program ‘cause it’s really important today focusing on concrete tools to understand better one of most important markets for contemporary economy; usually the common opinion look at China with “fear and suspect”, I think that’s usually it’ is cause we don’t have concrete vision to approach their culture and market. I found this opportunity of study and confrontation as useful and well structured and I’m sure now I’ll be able to face with China with better awareness.

Davide V., Export Manager: I’m thinking about professional relocation in China cause my company is dealing with this market and they needs my presence there. I think this course represented a concrete opportunity to understand more about chinese culture and society; in particular I think that we need to consider cross cultural and social aspects as fundamental key factors to approach chinese system on conscious way.

For me it was hard 2 days no stop teaching experience which I knew a lot about professionals who, even if with different projects and in different steps of their internationalization’s perspective, are getting involved with passion, respect and patience into chinese system. i’m pretty sure for them it’s gonna start a very crucial and important step in their professional life.. I wish to everybody all the best and good business in China! see you there!
