From August 1996 to December 1996, working as an international business journalist for the international press agency Interfocus Press (headquartered in New York), I was stationed in Canada and maintained personal interviews with the Prime Minister, top Government Ministers and the CEOs of the top 100 corporations of Canada and wrote a special report about the economic situation of the country that was published on the international magazine US News & World Report.

In the following two years, I was stationed for periods ranging from 3 to 6 months in the Czech Republic, Indonesia, the Philippines and Brazil. In each of those countries I had a chance to interview the Head of Government, top Government officials and the CEOs of the top 100 corporations to write and produce the editorial content of special economic reports that were published on international business media, such as Wirstshaft Woche (Germany), Le Nouvelle Economiste (France) and US News & World Report (USA).
