Building bridges

Nueno has high opinion of the Belt and Road Initiative proposed by Xi.

"I think it is a fantastic project. It's a way to indicate that China is opening to the world," he says, adding that he believes the development of one country is not a threat to another, but an opportunity.

To recognize Nueno's contributions to business education in China, the Chinese government honored him in 2009 with the Friendship Award, which is the highest honor given to foreigners for their contribution to the country's social and economic development.

Nueno, who visits China almost twice a month, says he is now used to this busy life and even makes use of his flight time to write.

He has authored more than a dozen books, including the recent Thanks, China.

The book, published in Spanish a few months ago and which will be available in Chinese soon, is about China's contributions to the world.

For instance, since purchasing Volvo Cars in 2010, Chinese company Geely Auto has grown the former Swedish company and created many new jobs.

He adds that though there may be doubts and opposition to Chinese companies like Huawei entering foreign markets, just like what American or Japanese companies faced before, these companies are creating employment.

"The majority of companies are doing things correctly. So, I think it makes sense to say 'Thanks China! Come!'" he says.
