Yang Liu Business Development Manager Global China Services
Came to the Netherlands in 2001, after obtained my MSc degree, I worked for a few years in the financial service industry. My interpersonal skills brought me to the Investment Agency of the City of Amsterdam where I built a good network with stakeholders of China outbound investment at all levels. My primary role is to help Chinese multinationals to set up business operations in the Amsterdam metropolitan region. I have been eager to understand the needs of Chinese corporations in order to bridge them with various parties for help. From July 2011, I started at Mazars as Business Development Manager. This great step has enabled myself to service the Chinese operations at professional front thanks to the global integrated partnership of Mazars.
