Embassy of the People's Republic of China in Estonia together with Enterprise Estonia's Asia Information Centre is inviting companies, officials and other interested stakeholders to the business forum "Doing business in China 2.0" held on September 12th in Tallinn. The forum will bring together high level experts from China and Estonia and presents a great opportunity for networking.

During the last decade we have witnessed a rapid rise of the Chinese economy, which has resulted in an increasing number of foreign companies entering the Chinese market and seizing its opportunities. By today, China has become one of the most important markets in the world, which means that no internationally competing company can ignore the market anymore. Although entering the Chinese market and doing business there has become a lot easier in the past years and great examples of successful foreign companies exist, China still presents some challenges to foreign companies due to their different business culture, legal system and norms. While both Chinese companies and consumers are becoming more interested also in Estonian companies and our products, every exporting company should be aware of the specifics of the Chinese market and how do business in China.

The business forum "Doing business in China 2.0" aims to help companies and other stakeholders to navigate better in the Chinese business environment and brings here high-level experts from China and elsewhere to discuss practical matters related to doing business in China. Join the event and find out how to open a company in China and how long will this process take; how to manage customs procedures and taxes in China; how does the Chinese legal system influence your business in China; how to export to China via cross border e-commerce. Get answers to these and other relevant questions from high-level experts from China and hear from Estonian companies already doing business in China.

Register today, meet Chinese market experts and find out how to export to Chinese market.
