First 15-20 minutes is for networking Light Breakfast included Hosted by the China Business Committee What is the Chinese market? Companies that have entered China over the last 5 to 10 years initially saw China as a whole - as one distinct market and began their operations in the comfortable and 'easy" Tier 1 cities of China. However, this was a common mistake that foreign investors made when entering China for the first time. As China's old-hands would say, 'China is a patchwork of regional markets at various stages of economic development.
These markets are bound together as one nation and yet separated by differences in government, communication challenges, regional rivalries and poor infrastructure." This is the reality of the Chinese market and any company looking to enter or expand must be aware and prepared to deal with this reality if they want to be successful. During this presentation, Anik Tremblay will highlight the opportunities and challenges that foreign companies face when deciding on their expansion strategies in China. What are the up and rising cities to invest in? Are there government incentive plans still in operation? Whatever happened to the 'Go West" incentive campaign and are there still advantages? And what are newcomers doing to beat their existing competitors that are already in the China market?
