Among The Dragon Lines
Dr. David Tan
Hong Kong Executive Council Member
This quiet young idealist is on the Council as the result of compromise politics; he was the only candidate who was harmless enough to get the backing of multiple corporations in a deeply partisan Board of Governors. A well-educated bodysculpting surgeon, David Tan’s only real corporate links are friendships with a number of executives who get work done through his practice.
All that could be about to change—just about every corporation on the Board of Governors and numerous entities outside the Board are looking for ways to ensure Tan’s loyalty to their cause and secure one more precious vote on the Executive Council. With the sharks circling, I don’t give Tan’s optimistic idealism a long lifespan.
