    Positive in/on

    Dear Teachers

    I am writing the following sentence. Would like to know if "in" or "on" should be used.

    We remain positive in/on China, Taiwan and Korea, as their exports-driven industries should be poised to benefit from a more promising recovery outlook in developed economies.



    Please advise

    I assume this is a financial position. If that is the case, use "on".
