The procurement process starts after you have selected a supplier that meets your requirements. In China, this is a much more complex process compared to European business practice. You may experience extended contract negotiations and a huge cultural gap that can hinder your ability to grow a prosperous partnership with the supplier. We have extensive experience in dealing with these situations and are happy to assist you so that you can avoid encountering these problems that many companies face. In order to reduce travelling costs and risks, we advise that you hire a local employee after the procurement process to help you follow up on your business agreements and maintain a good relationship on your behalf. Refer to our payrolling services for making local arrangements without having to set up your own entity.
