Webinar: Navigating China Market Entry

June 22, 2017

Join VEDP’s International Trade team to learn about navigating market entry into China!

China is a bustling business environment and a market with huge potential. It is essential, however, to enter the market with knowledge.

This webinar will provide an overview of various business models for conducting business in China contractually or through setting up an office. Key considerations addressed will be protecting intellectual property, the human talent available and other nuts and bolts about cross border business. Woven through the discussion will be cultural issues that are important to master before doing business in China.
