10 Reasons Why Some Businesses Are NOT Successful in The Chinese Market

The Chamber's Small & Medium Enterprises Focus Group invites Kristina Koehler-Coluccia, Head of Business Advisory at Woodburn Accountants & Advisors, to identify 10 common problems, which, individually or combined, can keep a business forever knocking on the door of expansion but never being allowed in.

There are millions of smart business ideas -  millions of entrepreneurs setting up companies to deliver a brilliant product or service. China has more than its fair share of exciting startups, which means the culture here is ripe for business success. Yet we hear from many companies who have successfully set up their business but have become frustrated by their inability to grow. For one reason or another their progress has slowed, and they are looking for something to kick-start them towards expansion. In a surprising number of cases, it is the business owner / overseas office who is responsible for the stagnation of the company. The inspiration, single-mindedness, perseverance and attention to detail that breathed life into the business in the first place can become the millstone that drags it down. It’s important, then, for all companies to be aware of the traits within themselves that can lead to the arrested development of their enterprise.
