Know Your Chinese Partner
Webinar | May 26, 2021 | 10:00 AM Central European Time / 4:00 PM China Time
In partnership with EU SME Center, Dezan Shira & Associates' Riccardo Benussi, Head of EU Business Development will introduce how to do due diligence on prospective Chinese partners, the legal records involved in doing business with China, as well as how to prevent fraud and apply controls, on May 27th.
When contemplating whether or not to do business with China, you, as an EU SME, have many choices: You may choose to simply export from Europe, use a distributor in China, establish your own office/manufacturing base in China or a combination of these. However, no matter what you do, you are likely to be confronted with the option of working with a local partner. Working with a local partner has a variety of advantages and, if not careful, possible disadvantages. It is important to stress that the vast majority of companies in China are honest and willing to develop sustainable business. However, just as important as whether to partner or not is the question: How to find, and assess, the right partner? This workshop has been designed to help answer this question by remarking the importance of conducting an exhaustive due diligence on potential business partners in China. Our expert will explain the documents that need to be checked and how to avoid the most common scams.
The EU SME Centre, EUROCHAMBRES, Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce and China IP SME Helpdesk are glad to invite to participate in an online workshop on 'Knowing Your Chinese Partner', which will take place on 26 May from 10:00-12:00 (CET).
