Reading Carl Crow's book on the challenges of marketing and trading in the Far East, 400 million customers, it becomes clear to everyone why a representative of a company active in China needs to be an experienced professional, an excellent communicator and a polymath who is well versed in local customs and superstitions. As Managing Director and Co-owner of Tradeland Group, Balázs bases his cultural knowledge on his MA in Sinology and Oriental Studies, his communication skills are backed up by a native command of 4 languages, and his economic achievements are guaranteed by nearly 20 years of professional experience in the Far East. He has held a number of positions within the Group, with his first lasting success in China for 15 years as Chief Representative of Tradeland Shanghai.

His responsibilities include the implementation of business development efforts, leading the operational functions outside the headquarters, whether it means opening new offices or launching new projects. He is currently in his third term as the EU-China Chamber of Commerce Country Representative for Hungary. In his spare time, he focuses on what he has built his entire career on: learning more about the culture of the East.
