"With the steady growth and development of the Chinese economy, more university groups and professionals from abroad are coming to China to get a first hand look at the business," comments Frank Yang, Sales and Marketing Executive for The China Guide. "China is the best place for student tours. It offers students an opportunity to gain first hand business insight from real professionals as well as learn about the history, culture and sights of the country. Our steel mill tour takes half a day, which can easily be combined with city sights or other academic aspects."
