The One Sea was created to connect leaders from both the private and public sectors to develop and leverage our collective "Guanxi" (pronounced Gwong-see).
Wikipedia defines Guanxi as the fundamental dynamic in personalized social networks of power (which can be best described as the relationships individuals cultivate with other individuals). There is a focus on tacit mutual commitments, reciprocity, and trust.
The name "One Sea" is a play on the Chinese pronunciation of Guanxi. Each member has been invited by another trusted member to help expand our Guanxi, build long-term business relationships and explore new opportunities through our community.
