All those countries you stated have traded with the westerners long before China opened itself to the WTO. They all have accepted the internationally trade language to be English. May it be propelled from war, trade, colony's - doesn't matter. I as a German have learned English as one of my 6 languages to talk and deal with all nations of this world including China. And here in my office in Xiamen everybody speaks English. ( often Chinglish) but for me it's fine. the effort is what counts.

So don't go and talk ambicious persons out of the idea to investing time and efforts in to their hopefully  fruitfully future by learning a foreign language.
