The Small Business Guide to China eBook

  1. 1. Media Notes For media enquiries please contact: Louise Hinchen Louise.hinchen@harriman-house.com +44 1730 269809 How small enterprises can sell their goods or services to markets in China Review copies are available on request Since China opened its doors to the world in 1978 its growth has been nothing short of meteoric. The 2007-09 credit crunch had little or no impact on the Chinese economy that continues to grow by almost 10% a year. China itself is now the fourth largest economy behind the USA, Germany and Japan, and if its current growth can be sustained, analysts expect China to become the world’s largest economy by 2025. China is not, though, simply the factory of the world. As the Chinese economy has developed, so has its population, with an estimated 8.5 million Chinese citizens migrating to urban areas each year in search of work and a better standard of living. As a result, the market for your business’ goods and services is inexorably growing. But can small businesses really compete in this vast market? It's a question that many small business owners are asking themselves. The Small Business Guide to China looks at not only how the Chinese economy works and what its citizens want to buy, but also how business is transacted in a market that will become the largest single consumer base on the planet over the next decade. Full of practical support and guidance, the book addresses topics from intellectual property rights to the correct etiquette during a business meeting. No matter what a business sells, investigating the markets in China is definitely an area to look into, and this easy-to-read informative bitesize guide shows small business owners how! The Small Business Guide to China by David Howell Brightword Publishing Press Release - August 2011 Brightword Publishing, 3A Penns Road, Petersfield, Hampshire GU32 2EW www.brightwordpublishing.com The Small Business Guide to China published in August 2011 by Brightword Publishing ISBN: 9781908003119, ePub, RRP: £10.00 Available in all good online bookshops The Small Business Guide to China is the fifth of ten titles in the Business Bites series, which consists of guides from leading experts. The series is packed with useful information, and each eBook covers a specific topic, so whether you want help with social media or how to balance your books, you can find the solution! Emma Jones of Enterprise Nation, co-founder of Brightword said: “Small business owners have plenty to pack into a working day and this was reflected in the demands we were receiving for content to be delivered in bite size chunks. We have commissioned authors who are experts in their fields and their tips and advice have been packaged in an easy style. This series of eBooks will help you increase sales, reduce costs and work more effectively. Best of all, you can digest a Business Bite Guide in the space of a coffee break!” The project is being backed by BlackBerry as part of its activity to support small business. Dan Sloshberg at BlackBerry said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Business Bite Size Guides. The series offers start ups and small business owners the information they need on topics that matter most. Content is easily accessible and can be consumed whilst on the move. This fits well with the BlackBerry ethos and benefits!” “Businesses that are looking for new markets for their goods or service are increasingly being drawn to China, but the question that many are asking themselves is where do they start? This fundamental question was the starting point for my book. Looking at the books and online materials that were currently available, none of these really delivered a coherent and concise pool of practical information. The Small Business Guide to China is the first book to gather all of the most important and relevant information that any small business owner would need into one guide. My book not only investigates how business owners can move into the markets in China, but what practical steps they should take. This book is timely as the Chinese Government is now more open than ever before to overseas investment. With trillions of dollars to spend on goods and services, Chinese businesses want to develop commercial relationships with businesses in the West. What’s more, these businesses don’t have to be large international enterprises. Small and even micro companies are now successfully entering lucrative markets right across China. After reading my book any business owner will not only clearly understand how business in China is transacted, but also have a roadmap their business can follow to commercial success in this massive and burgeoning market.” David Howell, August 2011 China has grown to become one of the largest markets in the world - David Howell takes a look at how this market can work for small businesses in the UK Dave Howell is Nexus Publishing.
