Here is some reliable advice for successfully exporting to China
Since making economic reforms in 1978, the East Asia country of China has become among the planet's most speedily-growing major economies. It has most recently been ranked the world's second biggest economy by both purchasing power parity and nominal total GDP. We would also like to draw attention to the fact that it is the world's biggest importer of goods.
Do all of these factors make China an especially good country to export and liquid cargo ship goods to at the moment? Of course! First, though, you should take account of the below advice from Catherine Raines, the director general for UK Trade & Investment in China. What she says and ocean freight shipping services from Wake Marine can help you to thrive in China.
Seriously consider what Catherine Raines says
Raines's job is helping UK companies to make the most of Chinese trade opportunities. Hence, she should clearly know a thing or two about successfully exporting to that increasingly prosperous country! Writing for the financial website This is MONEY.co.uk, Raines has pointed out that, since 2009, UK exports to China have more than doubled and that country's growing and increasingly urban population means that our country's exports to China could grow much further.
It should therefore hardly surprise that Raines has said that the rewards of conducting business in China "more than compensate" the necessary "time and patience to understand linguistic and cultural differences". She has even provided advice for effectively following Chinese customs.
Five pieces of advice for adhering to Chinese customs
Are you familiar with the term 'ru xiang sui su'? Probably not, unless you are very familiar with China. Whether or not you are so familiar, this is a popular Chinese phrase and means 'when you enter a region, follow its customs'. Raines has gave advice that can help you to do just that in China and, in the process, encourage greater business success for yourself there.
She has, for example, emphasised the importance of building strong personal relationships in the country officially known as the People's Republic of China. She has also noted that, at meetings, you should follow customs including standing up when someone comes into the room and showing deference to senior people. We hope that following these pieces of advice and using liquid cargo ship services from Wake Marine helps you to gain that crucial edge over the competition when doing business in China.
