Have you heard any disaster stories of Australian business trying to enter the China market? We sure have.
In fact, it’s kept many businesses away from realising growth and the benefits of expanding into the market.
We regularly meet companies that are too afraid to take the plunge. We hear stories where negotiation begins but never seems to conclude, with the Australian entity feeling like they are left hanging not knowing why. For example, one deal we discovered had 12 middlemen, not to mention problems with IP. Compounding these issues we also find much of the cultural understanding we see promoted is outdated and no longer relevant.
Fortunately, The Victorian State Government has been stepping in to help business move in the right direction. The Boost Your Business Voucher program has appointed service providers to deliver structured support to assist in entering China and more broadly, the Asian market.
