For instance, in the Washington Post, Delaware Governor Jack Markel writes about his recent trip to China and advocates for the U.S. to follow similar suit: Government-business partnerships: Washington Post to stimulate growth.

In the New York Times, a fascintaing pieces explores the rise of world-class museums in Qatar and Abu Dabi as a means to build a new Arab identity within the region and around the world: Building Museums, and a Fresh Arab Identity

In the Financial Times, there is a business story of how HSBC, the global bank based in London, has named a Paul Thurston, to be new global head of retail and wealth management division — who will be located in Hong Kong — the city within the the region that offers the most growth.
