Succession is an issue that I have written much about over the years and this piece from China shows that it is a major issue in China too, possibly moreso, as the next generation are voicing their concerns and just don't want to step  up in the family firm.

Many have been inspired to follow the example set by their parents, to work hard and build something of their own, but one good thing to come from the situation is that plans can be made as there is more of an open and honest dialogue taking place.  The next generation are looking to create their own businesses, family firms of the future that will address some of the issues that are coming to the fore as the economy continues to evolve.
