Event Overview

Our popular SME Roundtable is an opportunity to workshop your China business issues, challenges and opportunities and to hear practical business advice from knowledgeable and China-experienced ACBC members and guest experts.

This month you will get the chance to hear from and speak with Arie Schrier, General Manager of PTL Group - China. We know that the experience of starting independent operations in the Chinese market has proven to be very challenging for most companies. With the ever-growing intensity of competition in China and rapidly changing regulations, operational excellence has become  a key factor for success. With this in mind, Arie will focus his comments on:  

  • Starting your business in China
  • Mitigating risks for foreign businesses in China, with a focus on operational  aspects
  • Case studies analysis
  • What to consider when marketing your products to the Chinese consumers?
