  • Companies looking to enter and develop their business in China 
  • Companies already operating in China and seeking to expand their activities in the market 
Topics covered will include:
  • Starting your business in China
  • Mitigating risks for foreign businesses in China, with a focus on operational aspects
  • Case studies analysis
  • What to consider when marketing your products to the Chinese consumers?
