For all President-elect Donald Trump's anti-China talk, Chinese business leaders say they're looking forward to working with a "businessman."
"You, know, he's good at making deals, 'The Art of the Deal,' right, so reaching a deal that's beneficial for both sides" will be key, Charles Zhang, CEO of Chinese internet search giant Sohu.com, told CNBC. "I think it's important to sit down and talk. That's ... a positive side of the Trump presidency."
"I wouldn't worry," added Zhang, who has a doctorate degree in experimental physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
He spoke this past weekend on the sidelines of the MIT-China Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum, where Chinese business executives and fund managers were mostly upbeat about growth prospects for Chinese companies.
