Want to grow your business in Chinese market?

The Chinese market is not just trading in China and in the past.

Your local market now has access to Chinese market.

This is due to;

  • Chinese international trading over the internet,
  • Chinese delegations traveling world-wide for trade and education,
  • Chinese people on holiday exporting the world and returning to China with gifts of expletive banded products,

You on longer need to visit China to trade with China.

If you are serious about China, you need to be visible on the Internet in China!

For your consideration

In working with businesses in North America, Asia and Europe I feel the importance of the internet has been lost on many companies trading locally and world-wide trading.

The internet is often seen as something your business needs a presence on and not the main point in which to start trading. Maybe we saw it as something that was important in the 90’s but we have move on, that was yesterday idea!

This is not the case; the birth of the internet was as important as the birth of the printing press. Like the printing press, the internet is finding different uses very quickly given that the internet, like the printing press, enables faster commutation of information. If the printing press gave access to towns and cities., the internet gives us access to the world.   

There has been a world-wide change in the use of the internet which has been developing over the last 10 years.

The USA has leads the way, “if you are not online you not trading”. This is followed by China, not Europe, with number of users over 800 million and growing. The developing markets of Africa and South America will follow soon.

There has been a growing and changing use of the internet driven by the youth of the world over. 20 years ago, TV, books, newspapers were the main sources of information. Today the growing demands for information, educations and purchases is supplied by the internet.

There is now a generation which grew up with the internet and is working in business. They are changing the way in which we trade locally and international. This change is so great that your local market now has direct access to the international market.

This change is not a “Big Bang” but the changes are happening daily and are often missed by business.

Based on our company extensive knowledge we suggest the following key issues need to be considered;

  • Be seen on the internet world-wide. What services on the internet have been developed recently? Can new services help to grow your business or are they going to take control away from your business?
  • The amount of information being collected has given birth to the term “Big Data”. How can you put this information to use for our business?
  • With each passing generation the world-wide knowledge grows. The world-wide demand for education and training is growing fast along with the growing populations. Is your business seen as a source for information?
  • The world-wide control of distribution channels. The use of the internet enables people to access products and services faster. New big businesses are keen to manage and control access to products and services. Do these new businesses create new business opportunities or effect your current trading?

Successful trading in China

sccuss in china

Access to china and its directors have been working and trading in China for over 20 years. In this time, we have manufactured, imported and exported to China. While Access to China mainly focuses on IT services we still help Chinese source products and service from overseas companies..

There are many books and websites dedicated to the subject of successfully trading with / within China.

We wish to add a few pointers to the process of trading with the Chinese markets.

  • Brand ownership – generally there is little brand protection between China and the rest of the world;

i.e. your brand registered in the UK / EU / USA it does not give protection in mainland China. Your brand can be registered in China by Chinese or international company and in doing so will remove all your trading right to use your band in China.

Our recommendation is to register your band(s), trademarks and logos in mainland China and will give you power to develop your market in China without having to travel to China.

  • IPO - Intellectual Property rights – as with branding ownership it is important to make sure your company's right are protected. There are also additional benefits for new and leading ideas and technical with protected IPO there are organisation in Asia which will fund part / all for the development costs.
  • Research your products and band in China – Your research can start without traveling to China. Have a look for your products / bands on the Asia websites and search engines. You may find your Asia market is already be been develop for you;

e.g. Baby food products in Tesco in the UK been resold in China

  • Central and regional government funding – The Chinese government has been very successful at growing China GNP through investment in Chinese business and infrastructure. One key to this success is the creation and publishing of the five-year Chinese development plan.

If you are planning trade with China start with a review of the five-year Chinese development plan.

Most large Chinese businesses are government owned. The success of the government company will be measured in achievement against the five-plan. Each government company has to report back to regional and national government annually on 1st October each year.

Many SME receive funding if they can demonstrate they can add to the progress of the five-year plan.

This often leads to new Chinese asking for JV with oversees companies to meet the goals of releasing government funding e.g.

Moving overseas manufacturing to China

Having access to new technologies

Creating local employment

While planning trading with a new company in China planning to raise government funding is not a bad thing you need to have a clear understanding of where the funding is coming from before your business make any interest in time and monies.

  • Chinese contact – This is the hardest thing to do in any country. Who are you talking and in what role are they working in?

Use the internet to look up as much information you can find out about their business.

Often you will have multi business cards with different company names and details. Check all the information and relationship between the companies.

It is very difficult to know where the power base is in a meeting. It is normally the person in the room who has nothing to prove and therefore ask the fewest questions.

Please note, Government staff can no longer receive expensive gifts or be taken for expensive meals etc. We recommend keeping things simple and to the point.

Always walk away if it does not feel right. If it is really needed they will come and fine you.

Most importantly ask for help. International trading organisations, references, etc.

We started creating a page on this website with “useful link” to help you fine more information.
