Accelerating your expansion in China in a smart way: the digital trends
29th September 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The strong and fast economic recovery reflected in the Q2 Chinese economic data shows that the country continues to provide significant opportunities for Western firms, whether in exporting, eCommerce or sourcing and manufacturing.
On the other hand, the China digital landscape changes quite swiftly yet unpredictably, with new regulations coming nearly on a weekly basis. As a British business or entrepreneur, it is important to understand what the latest trends are in Chinese economy and tech so you could make the most of the opportunities presented in the rest of 2021 and beyond, while in the same time protecting your valuable digital assets including data.
Host Ting Zhang, Founder and CEO of Crayfish.io and a member of the IoD City China Committee, will be joined by Holly White from Rouse. Together they will bring you the latest updates on China’s digital trends, sharing insights on the world’s 2nd largest market, and focus on how best to approach the Chinese market efficiently and safely as a foreign business.
