Doing Business in China (Caroline Bérubé)
Doing Business in China is a practical guide that provides concrete answers to the questions every entrepreneur has when deciding whether to tackle the Chinese market.
How am I going to protect my company’s technology? Will I be able to repatriate the capital invested and my profits? Will my company be unjustifiably more taxed because it is a foreign entity?
These are just some of the questions that are at the forefront of the minds of entrepreneurs considering doing business in China. In this book author Caroline Bérubé leverages her decades of experience to answer these questions and to help the reader master the art of doing business in China.
