My friend Simon has worked as a Hong Kong-based purchaser for over 30 years before his retirement. Simon has agreed to record a series of Chinese audio shows/podcasts call “Tales of a Chinese Purchaser 買手的故事“ to share his years of experiences and insights in purchasing and working with Chinese factories.
(Note: This program has been recorded in the Cantonese dialect. And I hope to add the ability to subscribe to this show soon and make it a truly “podcast”.)
Note: Sorry for the delay in posting episode 5.
