Taimoor, I agree with you. Emotional feelings are good and there are different ways to express it. But in China they expressed their emotional feelings in a distructive way by damaging some of the Japanese company’s factory and facilities. From a company point of view, they may lose trust on government and peoples , when such things are happening.

Bolaji, Chinese people's can boycott any foreign products, including those manufactured in their domestic market because they have duplicates for all such products. But such emotional feelings will obliviously disappoint the foreign investors, who build business on trust of domestic market and people. I think next time onwards companies may have a second thought before investing in China, especially when situations like manpower is not so attractive like older days.

Is doing business online in China as lucrative?

I have heard from some marketers that the more they become invested in the online culture like us, this potential will increase. But keep in mind the differences in policies (censorship, etc).

@Hospice - Or at least not dissuaded by the authorities.

@Bolaji - Absolutely true! Certainly, doing business in China (either as a supplier, or as a marketplace) offers enormous potential. I am not certain that companies have properly assessed the risks that counterbalance the potential.

Hospice, That logic or rational thinking is not being displayed in China right now by the people protesting against Japan. Logic and nationalism sometime don't go together.

@Roques,

You don't live on patriotism and nationality when your economy depends on foreign investments, do you? China may be an attractive market, but the country's industry is not much thing by itself.

This has to do with China's patriotism and deep sense of nationality. Foreign companies might want to create new brands or divisions, designed for the Chinese market... Nissan has Infiniti as its luxury brand, but it could create a new one that is closer to chinese clients.
