Webinar: “Getting it Right: Rethinking China” – 15 June, 10h00 CEST

The geopolitical situation and new and changing domestic market dynamics, as well as the accelerated emergence of start-ups and other local competition, require foreign companies to reevaluate their approach to China. Both SMEs and large organizations face the same pain points and challenges in adapting to this new reality. A panel of experts will provide deep insights into common challenges, fresh thinking on innovation and advice on start-up strategies, as well as how strategic partnering and pursuing M&A options may become essential approaches in getting it right when it comes to dealing in a new Chinese business environment.
