    Hello

    I’m interessted in getting in touch with landscape architects and urban planners who have been working in Eastern Asia and especially in China – that is Hong Kong, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Beijing, Tianjin. Anyone with experience and contacts in companies working there.

    Send PM.

    Bard:

    If your motivation for posting this is to start networking for job opportunities in Eastern Asia, particularly China, be advised those opportunities have diminished greatly in the last six months, and most who know from direct experience, would say that is an understatement. In case you have not been paying attention, the national economy in China, and therefore the global one it inextricably linked to, are very wobbly and unsteady right now. 

    If you can’t speak Mandarin and have no previous and recent project history in China, your chances of finding a serious employment prospect are about equal  right now to seeing the Great Wall being extended as China’s newest idea for an infrastructure project. 

    That being written, yes I have a good network of contacts there, since I am “in country” but I won’t immediately hook-you-up with them unless I know what your intent is.
