Domestic economic news is glum lately, but the North Carolina Chinese Business Association is looking elsewhere as it kicks off its 2011-12 speakers series about doing business in China with a presentation by marketing guru Grace Ueng.

Ueng’s Savvy Marketing Group has a Chinese practice and recently published a white paper on setting up a successful business there.

The session will be Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. at 12 Davis Drive in RTP.

Ueng and Chris James, VP of Strategy and Business Development at Cree Inc., will talk about a case study Savvy did on Cree’s Chinese business effort.
