You mentioned some good points Carla. A friend of mine lives and has a business in China & shared some experiences with me like:

Picking a location is very important especially in the urban cities. People need to know which city is the place for their industry and then they will need an office or shop. Now, we all know that setting up a shop its all about location, but even office? You'd be surprised how the locals there think. They are more keen to doing business with a foreigner sitting in a decent office in a decent location.

Thanks Carla for providing the 5 important tips. I do agree with becoming the student of china before establishing a shop, it is very important to learn the chinese language to do market with people there. And if you especially join a business school you can understand different marketing standards, likes and dislikes of the people there to come up with product to match there expectations.

Absolute truth! The China business environs may be fascinating but deciding to have a shop there may cost one relocation to China

Understanding the country's history and culture will definitely help. That is the same for any new country in which you want to established your business quarters. But I agree that there features specific to China you might learn first.

@JADEN:

"and the government of that country has also interest in business affairs."

I know that China is an appealing market for potential investor. But what I fear the most is the government control over business activities. Can China government be always trusted to garantee investors a safe business environment?

All these tips are very important most especially "Understanding the business environment", as business environment refers to the surroundings of business enterprise, and this affect its operation and determines its effectiveness and success.  Business can't work in isolation, it is the economic and social organ of the society, it must achieve its economic goal, it can't ignore the interest of the society, and the government of that country has also interest in business affairs.

Ms. Daisy:

Thank you for your comment. Unlike outsourcing, expanding exports to fast growth markets, such as China, actually increases jobs in the United States.  Export growth provides new consumers for products made in the U.S., which lead to more production, and in turn more job creation. In fact, exporting supported 27 percent of U.S. manufacturing jobs in 2008.

As the economy rebounds, so will the number of jobs. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative reports that exports to China, the 3rd largest export destination for U.S. companies, totaled $91.9 billion, an increase of 32 percent over 2009. Just imagine how many jobs can be supported to produce a growing number of in-demand U.S. goods to be sold in China.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Thanks,

Carla Huang
