Is Mandarin really going to be the most useful language in internation business? What about Japan?

Question by Jake: Is Mandarin really going to be the most useful language in internation business? What about Japan?
I hope to go into international business. I would like to at least learn another language. I wonder which language could help me the most.

Best answer:

Answer by Adam B
The Chinese written language is a mess. It’s excessively hard to learn even for Chinese people, never mind non-Chinese. Unless Chinese ditches character writing, I don’t see Chinese displacing English as the language of international business any time soon.

ORENCO Hydropower Expands Team in Business Development, Project Engineering and Financial Analysis, and Regulatory Support

ORENCO Hydropower Expands Team in Business Development, Project Engineering and Financial Analysis, and Regulatory Support

Palo Alto, California (PRWEB) February 22, 2013

ORENCO Hydropower has announced four new additions to its team in the areas of business development, project engineering and financial analysis, and regulatory support. The company’s expansion follows a year of strong business gains in 2012, which saw contract awards for the Lewiston Powerplant Replacement for Trinity Public Utilities District, Weaverville, California, and the Whitman Lake Hydroelectric Project for Ketchikan Public Utilities, Alaska. In addition, Konohiki Hydro Power, LLC (a subsidiary of ORENCO Hydropower and Kauai-based renewable energy developer Pacific Light & Power, Inc.) received a Small Conduit Hydroelectric Exemption from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for the Pu‘u Lua Reservoir Hydropower Project on Kauai, Hawaii.

Commenting on the new members of the ORENCO Hydropower team, Vice Chairman Mark Matousek said: “We are very pleased to welcome these talented professionals to our team. We are confident their diverse skills, experience and expertise will give added depth to our company and carry us forward with even greater momentum and results.”

Here are the new members of the ORENCO Hydropower team:

JOHN EASTWOOD is focused on new business development efforts for ORENCO Hydropower equipment sales. Mr. Eastwood is the Executive Chairman of SunLink Corporation, which he founded in 2004 to commercialize the proprietary SunLink modular mounting system developed by his prior company, Eastwood Energy. Over the course of his career, he has accumulated 50 years of alternative energy experience as the founder of over seven start-ups in hydro, wind, high-speed fly wheels and solar, focused on product development, sales and all aspects of project financing. Among these companies, his roles have included founder of Eastwood Energy, a company initially focused on wind and hydroelectric technologies that turned its core mission to solar in 2002; co-founder and non-executive Chairman of Solar Power Partners (SPP), a firm focused on project financing for solar projects using power purchase agreements (PPAs) (now part of NRG Solar); co-founder and, over the course of his tenure, CEO, COO, and Special Advisor to the President of energy storage technology company Trinity Flywheel Power (which later became AFS Trinity Power Corporation); co-founder and Chairman of Peak Power Corporation, developing modular pumped storage facilities with capacities of approximately 100 MW; President of John Eastwood Associates, Inc., developing and managing small hydro projects; and co-founder and President of Bering Electric Company, successfully introducing Russian hydroelectric generating equipment to the U.S. market.

JAMES HOLEMAN provides the company with regulatory support. He has more than 36 years of experience in management of hydroelectric relicensing projects under various licensing processes; planning; wildlife biology; and public involvement programs and facilitation. He has been a key management and supervisory member of multidisciplinary teams focused on preparing pre-relicensing strategic plans, Pre-Application Documents (PADs), Initial Consultation Documents (ICDs), and License Applications. He has organized and participated in consultations with interested parties (including local, state, and federal agencies, Native American tribes, non-governmental organizations, and the public); planned and conducted public meetings; and successfully engaged stakeholders in relicensing proceedings. His responsibilities also have included managing multi-year contracts with multiple consultants supporting staff in study plan development, implementation, document preparation, and agency consultation. In addition, he was involved in the preparation of applications for new license, which included managing project authorizations up to $ 19 million. He has responded to post-filing comments and inquiries from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), agencies, and stakeholders, and developed implementation plans for the new license conditions. More recently, he managed or participated in the preparation of seven National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documents for FERC. He has managed or is currently managing the preparation of California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) documents under the direction of the California Water Resources Control Board for water quality certification of hydroelectric projects.

MIKE BOISMENU pursues business development on the East Coast. Mr. Boismenu has 43 years of experience in the power industry. He spent 31 years with Niagara Mohawk where he supported the design and engineering of the Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station, the upgrade of the bulk power system, the upgrading and modernization of the hydro fleet, the engineering of a variety of air quality control systems and the installation of distributed control systems for the company’s fossil fleet. In the Engineering Department, his responsibilities included detailed design, engineering, project management, engineering supervision and multi-disciplined department management. With Niagara Mohawk’s transition to deregulation, Mr. Boismenu became Plant Manager of a large coal fired power plant; under his leadership the plant’s overall performance improved while its operating cost were significantly reduced. In 1999, after the majority of the Niagara Mohawk fossil fleet was purchased by NRG Energy, he led the successful transition of the former Niagara Mohawk workforce to the new unregulated generating industry under NRG. As Plant Manager of the Dunkirk Generating Station, performance continued to improve and was continually recognized as one of NRG’s best performing assets. Prior to his retirement from NRG in 2003, Mike led the Mid-Atlantic and New York Regions as Regional Director, where he was responsible for the safety, performance and cost controls for assets within each region. Since then, he has continued to support the power industry as an independent consultant, utilizing his past experience to support a variety of operational and organizational assessments.

JAKE CORNELIUS provides project engineering and financial analysis. He graduated from Stanford University in 2006 with a degree in mechanical engineering, and received a master’s degree in Engineering for Sustainable Development from Cambridge University. Coursework in these programs centered on core engineering topics, but also included financial analysis, energy policy and business strategy. Mr. Cornelius’ interest in hydropower goes well beyond professional to personal: he is a world-class rowing champion with national and international results to his name, and is now coaching part-time at Stanford. In summer 2012, he participated in the Olympic Games in London, England, where he competed as a member of the United States rowing team and finished fourth. While training full-time for the Olympic Games over several years, Mr. Cornelius established Milestone Academic Counseling, a successful educational services business; worked for New Jersey Solar Consulting as a lead solar energy analyst; and was a sustainability consultant at Princeton University.



ORENCO Hydropower, Inc. develops small hydropower generation assets at existing dams and waterways that are low-cost and low-impact. The company assembles and manages a portfolio of hydro projects; and provides engineering, equipment procurement and financing for ongoing projects. Products and services include end-to end development of 1 MW to 50 MW hydropower projects; resale and integration of reliable Chinese turbines and generators to other hydro developers – at significant cost advantages; and partnering with small hydro developers to provide project financing and support.

Founded in 2010, ORENCO Hydropower brings together experts in hydro asset design and development, power markets, licensing and business strategy.

A Premier Business & Deal Driven Event – 9th Western Africa Oil/Gas & Energy Conference 2013

A Premier Business & Deal Driven Event – 9th Western Africa Oil/Gas & Energy Conference 2013

Windhoek, Namibia (PRWEB) October 06, 2012

This Conference will be once again be a landmark event with a Strategy Briefing on Western Africa held the day prior to the Conference, led by Global Pacific & Partners, and will offer prime networking potential as well as direct exposure to Governments, National Oil Companies, Licensing Agencies and leading corporate players in and across this vast zone where a century of oil/gas development is combined with numerous fast-emerging frontier ventures, including pre-salt targets in the highly prospective offshore/deepwater zones from Morocco to Cape Town.

“Western Africa” covers a vast oil and gas exploration zone, one of the world’s richest and most promising for ventures – from Morocco to the Cape, including island states, with an enormous offshore zone and hydrocarbon potential, alongside prospective deepwater blocks, ultra-deep opportunities only to date marginally explored, Exclusive Economic Zones, and promising pre-salt potential analogous to Brasil, plus numerous existing onshore basins (producing and immature, as well as frontier) and a huge interior domain across 27 countries – in effect, fully one half of Africa and the continental land mass of over 30,000 sq km.

As Dr Duncan Clarke (Chairman & CEO, Global Pacific & Partners) remarks: “No global player or emerging Independent with an international footprint, or even fast-growing state oil company, can afford to underrate this world-class Western African play – which offers a suite of technical and corporate options: abundant acreage, farmins, acquisitions, bid rounds, new exploration frontiers, a consistent record of oil/gas discoveries, fast-breaking plays such as in the Transform Margin, rising oil/gas reserves, attractive contract terms, competitive potential in LNG ventures across several countries, and even large undeveloped resources in heavy oil/oil sands, and emerging shale gas/oil ventures”

This 9th Western Africa: Strategy Briefing on 22nd April 2013, prior to our Annual 19th Western Africa Oil, Gas & Energy Conference with 49th PetroAfricanus Dinner, provides key insights on the corporate upstream oil and gas game, governments and state oil firms, and licensing strategies, in Africa’s dominant oil and gas exploration and producing zone, Morocco to South Africa and across the Atlantic margins focused on 25 countries.

The Strategy Briefing is built on 30 years of Africa-wide oil and gas knowledge and extensive research on economics and the political economy of Eastern Africa. It tracks changing competitor maps in oil and gas-LNG companies, providing seasoned insights and interpretations on key players, policies and portfolios, unique to Global Pacific & Partners.

Presentations are by Dr Duncan Clarke (Chairman & CEO, Global Pacific & Partners), author of Africa’s Future: Darkness to Destiny (Profile Books, 2012) and of Africa Crude Continent: The Struggle for Africa’s Oil Prize (Profile Books, 2010), the first and only Africa-wide oil historiography to the present day, now a TV- Film Documentary by CNBC-Africa. Earlier published works included The Battle For Barrels (Profile, 2007) and Empires Of Oil (Profile 2007).

Participants benefit from deep understanding of corporate strategies, access to unique industry knowledge, high-level networking, Luncheon, and Cocktails Delegates receive direct online access to Presentations (over 500 Images).

Artisan Business Group hosts EB-5 Alternative Finance Seminar in Washington DC October 15, 2012

Artisan Business Group hosts EB-5 Alternative Finance Seminar in Washington DC October 15, 2012

Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 25, 2012

Artisan Business Group Inc., is hosting an EB-5 investment seminar where EB-5 regional centers, commercial real estate developers and capital-seeking businesses won’t want to miss, in Washington, DC, October 15, 2012. The EB-5 workshop at Courtyard Arlington Crystal City Hotel/Reagan National Airport will exclusively focus on EB-5 regional center activities, project marketing and investor procurement in China and Korea.

The one day event will feature an honorary guest and speaker Mr. Charles Wang, Co-founder and CEO of GreenTech Automotive. The GTA has recently opened its manufacturing facility in Mississippi. GTA successfully raised EB-5 funding in China and other foreign countries. The GTA project is one of the very few manufacturing-related EB-5 programs that has successfully utilized EB-5 finance and created hundreds of American jobs in the U.S. Mr. Wang will share his personal story and insights of raising EB-5 capital for an All-American manufacturing plant in the state of Mississippi. Angelique Brunner, President of EB-5 Capital, will also be speaking at the event. Ms. Brunner is responsible for sourcing and structuring all projects for EB-5 Capital, including the Marriott Convention Center hotels and City Market at O Street Market in Washington, D.C, as well as the Sugarbush Ski Resort in Vermont.

Other VIP speakers include Brian Su, Artisan Business Group, Inc.; Jeff Carr, Economic & Policy Resources, Inc.; Kate Kalmykov & Steve Anpoell, Greenberg Traurig; Victor Shum, JMBM; Hong Yu, Wailian Overseas Group; Michael Gibson, USAdvisors.org; John Jiang, Micon International, John Li, EB5Supermarket, and David Hirson, Fragomen.

The EB-5 program— on which Mr. Su’s consultations are centered– creates potential for U.S. businesses and project developers to tap into foreign capital sources that would otherwise be difficult to come by. The program, which is also referred to as the “Immigrant Investor Program,” is a 1990 initiative of Congress that seeks to stimulate the U.S. economy and job market through foreign investment. In return, foreign investors with high net worth are rewarded with a desirable green card alternative. Throughout the life of the program, billions of dollars of foreign investment have flowed into the U.S., much of which has come from China. With its growing economy and increasing wealth, China continues to provide a reliable source of foreign capital for U.S. developers. “China’s Private Wealth Report 2011,” published by China Merchants Bank, shows that Chinese interests in oversea immigration and real estate are growing. The publication also notes that approximately 27% of Chinese billionaires have been involved in emigration investment. The interest wealthy Chinese show in investing abroad, combined with the EB-5 program, provide a win-win solution that connects high net-worth Chinese individuals with U.S. businesses and developers needing financial backing. Individuals or business seeking funding specifically for real estate development projects are great candidates for the program.

Horizon Council and FGCU Second Quarter Lee County Business Climate Survey Report Indicates Expected Continued Improvement

Horizon Council and FGCU Second Quarter Lee County Business Climate Survey Report Indicates Expected Continued Improvement

Fort Myers, Florida (PRWEB) May 22, 2012

FORT MYERS, Fla. (May 18, 2012) – The second quarter Horizon Council and Florida Gulf Coast University’s Lee County Executive Business Climate Survey Report provides insights into Lee County’s economy and expected economic trends.

The survey provides a key new economic indicator for Lee County, the Executive Business Climate Index.

The second quarter survey (April 2012) value for the Lee County Executive Business Climate Index is 69, which indicates expected continued improvement in the local economy. The index is slightly higher than the index value of 66 calculated from the first quarter survey (January 2012) reinforcing the executives’ view that that the overall local economy is expected to continue to improve.

Additional key findings for the second quarter of 2012 include:

70 percent of executives stated that the current economic conditions have improved over last year;

79 percent of the executives expect the economy to improve over the next year;

65 percent of the executives stated that the current economic conditions for their industry have improved over last year, but 30 percent stated that economic conditions remained approximately the same;

79 percent of executives expect economic conditions for their industry to improve over the next year;

32 percent of executives had increased employment over the last year, while nine percent had reduced employment;

45 percent of executives expect to increase employment at their companies during the next year and only one percent of executives expect to reduce employment;

53 percent of companies expect to increase investment next year and only three percent expect to reduce their investment levels;

The cost of doing business was moderately higher than last year for 58 percent of the executives and substantially higher for 13 percent of the executives compared to last year. Only two percent of the executives indicated that costs were moderately lower and 27 percent indicated that costs were approximately the same as one year ago.

The cost of doing business over the next year is expected to be similar to the increases observed over the last year. Sixty-nine percent of the executives expect moderate higher costs but 10 percent expect costs to be substantially higher;

The geographic client market includes 24 percent of firms serving international markets and 40 percent serving the U.S. market;

The primary business challenges identified by the executives included:
     A qualified workforce
     Controlling costs
     Markets and growth
     Poor local and national economy
     Healthcare costs

The Executive Business Climate Index value can range from 0 to 100. An index number of 50 would be neutral or an expectation of no change in economic activity. Therefore, this quarter’s index indicates economic activity in Lee County is expected to improve but at a less than moderate growth pace.

The index is computed using the two questions concerning the current and future economic conditions and a third question about the expected industry economic conditions. The index is an average of the responses with substantially better equal to 100, moderately better equal to 75, same equal to 50, moderately worse equal to 25 and substantially worse equal to zero.
