China

China is not so much a country as a whole continent, with hundreds of diverse cultures, languages, cuisines, preferences, cities and nuances. You’re best to think of China in the same way you might think of Europe or Africa. And China can be approached in the same way.

China demands attention as the worlds #1 consumer market by size, especially online. Due to massive recent modernisation, China offers more consumers than any other single market in the world. For sourcing China has built an infrastructure and quality supply chain which is globally unrivalled.

To approach and manage all this successfully will require a board-level commitment with a mid-term investment mind-set. You’ll also need a well-developed solid strategy based on strong intelligence and useful connections.

China demands and caters to almost every industry and product type, so market validation is often not required. However, you will need clearly defined objectives based on market research and strong relationships with identified major partners. These will be critical, so need to be carefully selected and maintained.

That’s where Asian Insiders can help you best.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a densely packed premium consumer environment with a highly developed retail market. Hong Kong is also the world’s third largest capital market with a robust, mature demand for banking and technology. Despite recent political shifts, Hong Kong remains the commercial hub of Asia and the gateway to China.

Food and beverage, personal care, health foods and luxury consumer goods are in demand and command premium prices while duties are low or non-existent. There are no taxes. Hong Kong consumers are educated and require less nurturing than mainland Chinese.

Hong Kong is world-renowned but often is under-rated as a market in itself.

Hong Kong welcomes and encourages technology and licensing deals. Incentives are available through HK Trade and Investment. Hong Kong remains focused on R&D and with their high educational standards, Hong Kong offers plenty of smart, competent and internationally skilled people.

Asian Insiders can help you to understand Hong Kong, to connect you to appropriate authorities and to assist with smooth market entry. Whether as a stand-alone market or as part of your broader China-strategy, Hong Kong deserves closer inspection.
