Growing Your Business
As a medium or large-sized company, how do you grow your business? You:
Reduce costs to improve margins Increase sales to generate new revenue
To reduce costs, many large companies have already moved part or all of their production and procurement to Low Cost Countries (LCC). That’s why they can offer ‘everyday low price’ - Wal-Mart purchased $25 billion worth of goods from China in 2004. Wal-Mart is not alone, today, 20% of US imported goods are sourced from China, the hub of world low-cost manufactures.
With more than 1.3 billion people, China is also an attractive consumer marketplace to the world. The country accounts for 23 percent of all televisions sold in the world, 20 percent of all cell phones and 18 percent of all washing machines.
Sounds good, right? But it can be very hard to buy and sell in China, if you don’t have experienced people who understand the complex business environment in the country. There are many challenges that companies have to face when seek to establish and grow their trade relationships in China. Barriers such as language, cultural differences, government regulation, intellectual property protection, quality assurance, and on time delivery are just a few of the hurdles for companies that are entering the overseas markets.
