Localization strategies:
Expanding into China means starting from scratch

Many brand owners and retailers wrongly assume that they can copy the same market entry strategy for another country and simply apply it to the Chinese market. But China is different. It is crucial to execute a proper localization strategy. Localizing your brand message and adapting your product to Chinese consumer behavior are the most important but challenging steps to achieve popularity in China. West meets East helps you achieve this goal to tap into the largest consumer market in the world.

Business initiation and business brokerage:
Strong e-commerce partners

In global historic first, ecommerce in China will account for more than 50% of retail sales. Therefore, it’s unthinkable to avoid presence on online distribution channels. West meets East gives you access to Chinese online distribution networks while granting you a clear understanding of the various distribution channels and the knowledge of how to sell your products in China.
