By some measures, China became the world’s largest economy last year, representing 10% of all global trade. The country is America’s second largest trading partner and opportunities for US businesses in China have never been brighter.
Chinese consumers increasingly demand respected US goods and services, and the Chinese government has begun to break down some of the barriers that previously depressed trade, including IP protection that was too loose and high-tech tariffs. Join us to explore the macro trends and the important considerations necessary for US companies to implement successful China export strategies.
Topics include:Important regional differences: free trade zones, industry clusters and diverse, rising urban areasHow to fully understand Chinese customers and varied B2B and B2C marketsHot new markets, including environment protection products and green buildingHow to navigate Chinese, regional and local rules, regulations and bureaucracies, including IP protection and trademarkWhat the trend of Chinese manufacturers producing higher value products means for US businesses and the overall global supply chainThe impact of the evolving US-China Bilateral Investment Treaty, the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the new Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank on US businesses
