Why locate in China and ASEAN countries now?

China has held the world’s imagination for centuries as a center for trade and globalization.  More recent trends in offshoring and global supply chains have reinforced this global powerhouse’s strengths in efficient production and innovation.

However, national retrenchment, changes in US tax law, and rumors of labor market tightening present new challenges to companies and investors considering investing in the China market.  Smart companies need insight into the real story on the ground and also need to understand how to properly establish and function in China.

Investment Consulting Associates, Dezan Shira & Associates, and KLR collectively have many decades of experience in global location decision making, market entry to China, and global tax and HR matters.  In this 90-minute session, we will outline and explore the opportunities and issues inherent in setting up in China today.
