GREATER CHINA, A KEY MARKET FOR HIGH-TECH COMPANIES
Mainland China, Hong-Kong and Taiwan represent a unique growth opportunity for European companies. The growth forecast (+7%) for 2003 confirms the extraordinary economic health of this country. Chinese entry into the WTO has accelerated local and national demand for all technological sectors with both government and local companies as significant investors. One example of this is the mobile telephone sector that now approaches 200 million users surely a market that no one can afford to ignore. Approaching this market can involve significant risk for potential investors. The risks range from cultural differences and increase in management time through to loss of corporate focus and an increased cost base.
Today these risks can be minimised by companies adopting CEO Worldwide's "Target Greater China" solution.
