Strategic Market Entry Assistance (SMEA)

    Through GdP’s knowledge of industries, markets, the Chinese culture, and government policies and practices, the client’s entry into the PRC will be the correct one for them. Market condition variables are matched with client aspirations and resources to develop a stable market entry strategy that is correct for them. Entry alternatives range from simple export/import to a wholly owned foreign enterprise (WOFE). (Since entry into the WTO, joint ventures are no longer required.)
