It's no secret that doing business in China requires a different mindset from what we're used to for dealing with "western" markets. For instance, there is a stronger emphasis on respect and hierarchy compared to in UK business relationships.

It is also important to understand that China cannot be treated as one single market. Whilst China's population is becoming increasingly urban, there are nonetheless various different regional economies and economic hubs. You will therefore need to research the regional economic and cultural differences that could impact the success of your product and develop the right strategy for each market.

Despite its challenges, the Chinese market can be an extremely lucrative long term investment for British businesses. China is already the world's largest economy on a purchasing power basis and since the economic reforms and 'opening up' policy of the late 1970s, China has experienced a period of rapid economic growth, averaging almost 10% per annum for the three decades up to 2010. Over this period China's economy effectively doubled in size every eight years!

This one-day training course will help guide you through the intricacies of doing business in this dynamic country.
