China is the most populous country in the world. Its economy is the fastest growing and ranks second only to the United States. It is no surprise that nearly forty years after the opening up of China, foreign companies are continuing to stampede into China to take advantage of China’s expanding markets for their products and services, to leverage China’s manufacturing and service base to cost-effectively meet foreign market demands, or to benefit from its vast research and development resource capabilities fueled by the millions of annual college graduates with advanced degrees.

Usually companies engage our services while still in the strategic planning stage and seek our support to implement company initiatives and achieve company objectives. Because every venture is unique, especially on foreign soil, not just knowing, but knowing how has been the key to the success of the clients we serve.
Often the effort involves extensive coaching and a well prepared strategic plan. Other times it may require political lobbying of the Chinese government at the local, provincial, or central level. Regardless the stage of your business development, our expertise in navigating through the Chinese bureaucracy has been the cornerstone of our practice in China.
