The Wiley Advantage

CHINA IS THE INVESTING OPPORTUNITY! Everyone hears that China is growing at a double digit pace. Investors looking at a flat US market and an uninspiring EU are increasingly focusing on China. If students begin studying China in school, they will be ahead of the curve.

MERGENT IS THE SOURCE OF TRANSPARENCY IN CHINA: While everyone wants to invest in China, it is extremely difficult to gain a full understanding of its companies, their financials, and their prospects. Mergent’s connection with Xinhua makes it the sole source for quality financial data and company analysis in China.

STRONG ASIAN PRESENCE – CHINA OPPORTUNITIES: Xinhua has tremendous reach in China. They will be involved in the project and will support its release in Asia.

XINHUA WILL BE PROMOTING THE BOOK IN ASIA: Freddy Bush, CEO, will be providing the forward for the book. What's more, she has stated that the Xinhua will be supporting this book in Asia through its vast media outlets.
