There are almost as many Millionaires in China as there are in America, and China is the biggest consumer of 700 series BMW’s and Mercedes. It is inevitable that Asia will continue to grow economically. American and European countries should focus on manufacturing some goods in China, and also selling value added exports to the wealthy Chinese consumer. There are companies such as Price Translations that specialize in translating existing websites written in English, and building them in Chinese so that the average upper class Chinese housewife can get online and buy these products.
