Eric Hanson - An American's View of Investing in China

Eric grew up in Burma, and inherited from his newspaper reporter father and schoolteacher mother a love for travel amid cultures far different from those experienced by an ordinary stateside American child.  He grew especially fond of China where he has traveled extensively and has invested in publicly traded companies, many of which he has visited personally.   He  now lives in Burlington, Vermont where he is an Investment Manager with Hanson & Doremus Investments and he continues his involvement with China, including investment activities.  Eric speaks both Mandarin and English.
