"Under the cruel new realities, how can one run a business well, and how can one become the new hero? I think there are four key aspects: first, knowing right and wrong; second, being dutiful; third, knowing the trend; and fourth, being innovative. If you succeed in the first three key aspects, being innovative will be the natural result," said Liu Donghua, Founder and Deputy Executive Chairman of the China Entrepreneur Club.
