Abstract:
"I have been asked to lead a discussion today about careers in international business. There is a Japanese proverb that says, "Rongo yomi no rongo shirazu." Just because you read Confucius does not necessarily mean you understand what he says. Just because I have worked and studied in Asia the past 25 years does not mean I understand everything about Asia. In fact, I spend more time studying about Asia today than when I first moved to Tokyo in 1973."
