I was invited to speak at the 10th annual GG LED conference in Shenzhen in early January. The purpose of my talk was to give my opinion on the effect of Donald Trump’s presidency on the energy efficient LED lighting industry. The talk was nonpartisan and I simply presented a few facts and opinions. LED lighting is a global business and what happens in the US affects China and vice-versa. I was treated like a king by my hosts Paul Nie and Jack Zhang. It is great to have strong relationships on both continents.
