In February 2011, as most of the world continued to struggle through an economic recession, China surpassed Japan to become the world’s second largest economy.  While many suspect China’s growth will slow in coming years, it is still the case that China holds the promise of huge market potential and major revenue opportunities for businesses worldwide.
So why aren’t all of our Silicon Valley companies having huge success in the market? Strict rules for entity formation, complex tax and financial regulations, stringent foreign exchange controls and a unique business culture are just some of the obstacles that can make the environment difficult for foreign companies. Detailed planning and guidance from seasoned veterans are critical for a successful Chinese expansion.
This seminar will cover what to expect when setting up operations in China, and how to deal with the unexpected. Some topics will include:
Entity establishment – Available options to foreign companies and implications of your choice of entity
Managing finances across the US and ChinaEmployment issues – contracts, visa/immigration requirements, benefits and more
Navigating government regulatory and incentive schemes
Examples of successes and challenges of companies who’ve entered the Chinese market
