The China Connection - Setting Up Manufacturing and Supply Chains

by Mike Chester, CPIM, CIRM

The dragon has awoken. Whether as contract manufacturers, joint venture partners, or wholly owned operating companies, Chinese enterprises are becoming key, integral components of Corporate America's supply chains.

Mr. Chester will show how an understanding of Chinese culture and business practices leads to a more successful relationship with Chinese enterprises. The options for and processes of setting up manufacturing and supply chains will be explained. Pointers, risk factors, and safeguards at all stages from identifying potential partners through negotiating and closing deals and ensuring profitable operations will be given. Real examples from Mr. Chester's 20 years' experience helping companies set up operations in China will be given.
