Hi, my name is Cristina Font Haro and welcome to my blog.
All my life, or at least as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for learning about what is happening around the world. Indeed it is incredible how much the world has changed in the last couple of decades.
As I have grown older I have had the opportunity to see some of these changes first hand. Between 2013 and 2018 I was living, studying and working in China – immersing myself in a culture and land that will be center stage as global economic and political power shifts into a new era. I learned fluent Mandarin and graduated with an MA in Chinese Studies, International Relations, and Conflictology. I also worked for various think tanks in the field of political risk management for investors in emerging markets and have published articles for policy audiences as well as the business and trade sectors.
Here I am going to offer you my insight into the world we live in and how the international community interacts and does business with one another. As such, I will be publishing articles on Asia, European policy, defense, security and foreign policy issues around the world.
I believe understanding Asia, in particular，East Asia and China, will be key to the future success of businesses, foreign policymakers and investors throughout Europe and America. I hope my perspective on this region will help you with this understanding.
