I am not entirely new to Motley Fool, but I am to Pro. I currently trade options regularly and have made some money out of it, but I decided that it is time to start building a proper, long term portfolio and have chosen Pro. In case you are interested, I am a chemical engineer who lives in South Africa and has until recently been the CEO of the biggest division of the an international project engineering company with offices in South Africa, Australia, Russia and India and a procurement office in China. I have visited all these countries a number of times (as well as numerous countries where we have done projects). I currently consult to a few number of major mining companies on project and risk management....

I case anybody is interested to better understand some of the drivers in China, I have access to an excellent quarterly publication published by one of my friends who have lived in Beijing for the last 7 years. Drop me a note and I can forward it to you, or even better ask him to put you on his distribution list.

Being quite new here, I will at first try to observe rather than to contribute unless I have something to say with authority.
