I first came to China in 1996 using the Trans-Siberian train from Moscow to Beijing, experiencing the opportunities of this emerging economy. In 2004,
I adopted my daughter, Jin Yancheng, connecting myself to China forever. The second character in her name, 燕 Yan, meaning “swallow”, inspired the name of my company, Orange Swallow.
With my background in business economics and my personal connection to China, I became increasingly interested in the Chinese business world.
