Trends for Inbound Investment to China

Always forgotten and focus is only ever placed on Short-Term Results

Talk to advisors in each link of the chain to understand what is most beneficial for your business model

2. Market Research

Never a concern

Make sure you know why you are entering the market before actually entering

3. Singapore is used to enter the following South-East Asian countries: India, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh and Indonesia

4. Hong Kong is used to enter the East Asian countries: China, Mongolia, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Australia

5. China is used for establishing operational entities

Trends for Outbound Investment from China

1. Tax Planning

No need – Never had to do it in China so why now?

2. Market Research

Surprisingly thorough

3. Singapore is used for Family Trusts and Private Banking – particularly as a vehicle for Purchasing Assets

4. Hong Kong is used to go IPO

5. China needs MAJOR restructuring in order to become transparent
