I was really looking forward to today’s visits: Microsoft and BCD Travel. For the programme thus far, Microsoft was the first multi-national corporate visit. At Microsoft, we met with Elaine Huang, Category Manager (Greater China Region). She shed light on a multitude of challenges travelers to and within China face as policies, protocol, and expectations vary greatly. China is number two when it comes to travel spend even though the travel infrastructure in China is still in a ...
