It must feel like the 'China-entrepreneurs-24-hour-news-channel' on this blog lately. The truth is, the increasingly central role of the entrepreneur in China is a phenomena, which is captivating the attention of many of us in the business of international private sector development -- not to mention a whole host of social scientists, economists, and lawyers ... to name a few.
One case in point is the China Law Blog. It recently carried our posting on Chinese firms driving investment expansion to illustrate how facts on the ground, combined with government planning and strategy, are putting Chinese entrepreneurs squarely in the middle of China's economic development trajectory.
The China Law Blog posting flagged a new China Daily article, entitled "Professionals, entrepreneurs: new pillar of China," which describes how China's 150 million entrepreneurs and "freelance professionals" are a "new pillar" of Chinese society and economic development.
It's no accident then that it feels like the 'China-entrepreneurs-24/7' channel on this blog and other business news platforms sometimes. For international business and development trend watchers anywhere, that's easily among the most intriguing stories unfolding in the 21st century.
