Praise for Investment Banking & Investment Opportunities in China "I first met Tom Liaw when my company was exploring potential opportunities in Taiwan. He clearly knew the market and proved invaluable in explaining the financial landscape and in arranging meetings with potential clients, other market participants, and senior government officials. Investment Banking and Investment Opportunities in China should prove equally valuable as we now look to further expand our activities to mainland China." -Douglas Reinfeld-Miller, EVP, Ambac Assurance, and Chairman/CEO, Ambac Assurance UK Ltd "There is no more important market than China today. Dr. Liaw's book provides an overview of the current situation and recommendations as to how investors can profit from China's amazing growth." -Donald Tang, Chairman, Bear, Stearns Asia Ltd, and Vice Chairman, Bear, Stearns & Co., Inc. "Professor Liaw's book takes you on a quick walk through the major milestones in China's economic development over the past two decades. It shows a clear understanding of the environment for doing business in China and explains hot topics in the marketplace.
This book is simple, easy to read, and yet highly informative." -Jesse Wang, Vice Chairman, China Central SAFE Investments Ltd, and Chairman, China International Capital Corporation Ltd "Provides a clear map of China's financial system, investment banking business, and investment opportunities. It should be read by all who are interested in China." -Mao-Wei Hung, Dean, College of Management, National Taiwan University "Dr. Liaw's book is a comprehensive professional reference work for those of us involved in the global investment arena. I highly recommend it." -Charles P. Menges, Jr., CFA, Principal, Business Global Wealth Management, a Unit of Alliance Bernstein LP "China's development has a unique track, including the financial market.
