In Summary

In the light of business plan complexity, strong strategic partnerships – based on trust, mutual respect and understanding of cultural differences, good governance and open connectivity are essential for success.

For many companies, the differences in habits and culture and certainly the regular evolution in policy focus can be extremely difficult to bridge without expert advice. Many investments have failed by not recognizing this enough on a timely basis.
