Jia W. Li

Prior to founding A&C, Jia has also worked in the social development sector. Later in her experience working with international businesses, she was frustrated by the intransparencies and foul plays done by middlemen and agencies. She decided that her consultancy will drive changes, bring transparency, and value authenticity.
