The U.S. Commercial Service in China recently released a “China Business Handbook,” a resource guide for doing business in the People’s Republic of China. Produced in association with Dezan Shira & Associates, the guidebook provides a general overview to doing business in China with chapters devoted to the Chinese market; Shanghai and the Yangtze River Delta; business advisory including choosing a China structure, IPR issues, staffing, and managing supply chains; selling to China’s emerging middle class, sector opportunities; and industry case studies.
“Our hope with this “China Business Handbook” is to provide U.S. companies with access to more knowledge, information, and expertise needed for success in the china market,” writes William Brekke, the senior commercial officer for the U.S. Commercial Service in Beijing.
This guide is part of the U.S. Commercial Services ongoing efforts to support U.S. businesses operating in or selling to China. It is being distributed to all U.S. city chambers of commerce, world trade centers and department of commerce offices across the United States and China. U.S. companies accounted for nearly US$71 billion in imported good to China in 2008.
