- China has huge export activity. Since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, it has consistently enjoyed double digit year-on-year export growth rates. It has now overtaken the US as the world's biggest trading nation in value of exports and imports.
- China has 3 of the top 10 companies in the world by market capitalization: Beijing PetroChina, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, and China Mobile.
- China is not just a manufacturing hub. The new 5 year plan will aim to shift the economic focus from export driven to domestic demand driven.
- Relationships are key. The Chinese like to form close relationships based on trust and mutual benefit before doing business. Many Western companies fail to take this into account when dealing with Chinese clients.
- Beijing is a great location to undertake an internship in business, as most large companies and State Owned Enterprises have offices there to be close to government. China is also becoming increasingly entrepreneurial, with exciting opportunities in start ups that are driving forward a new wave of business that moves at a faster pace than more bureaucratic big business.
