East Asian business leaders warming to Trump

Survey shows Chinese execs depart from Japanese and Korean peers on economy

Nikkei Inc., Chinese daily Global Times and South Korea's Maeil Business Newspaper surveyed executives in December, receiving responses from 100 businesses in each of Japan, China and South Korea.
