East Asian corporate chiefs on guard for President Trump

Survey reveals pessimism over China, hope for AI and 'internet of things'

A survey conducted jointly by Japan's Nikkei, South Korea's Maeil Business Newspaper and China's Global Times found that corporate managers are concerned about the impact of Donald Trump becoming president of the U.S.

TOKYO/SEOUL -- Chinese and South Korean business leaders are more concerned about U.S. President-elect Donald Trump than their peers in Japan, a survey showed, while all three countries shared a bleak view of the Chinese market in 2017 and high hopes for the future of artificial intelligence and the "internet of things."

Japan's Nikkei Inc., South Korea's Maeil Business Newspaper and Chinese daily Global Times conducted a survey of corporate leaders in December, receiving 100 responses each in Japan and China and 104 in South Korea.
