Doing Business in China

By March 1, 2006General

Let’s face it, that is a scary phrase for more than a few U.S. businesses. It’s not the easiest venue for sure, and there are risks. But there are also real profits to be made by savvy players who know the ins and outs and pitfalls to avoid as well as where to get good assistance every step of the way. Like to learn their secrets?

The U.S. Department of Commerce has teamed up with private sector industry experts to offer workshops across the country in the coming months to give you the help you need. Managing Risk and Preparing Realistic China Strategies in 2006 and Beyond workshops let you hear from foreign service commercial officers who have spent years working in the China market, business pros, and local exporters with real life stories – what they did right, what they did wrong, how they profited. You’ll find out how to access the world’s largest market successfully, plan your intellectual property strategy, the best sales prospects for your products, and how to put the U.S. government to work for your success in China.
