This is a crowd-sourced “open” resource that details the organisations and channels that are worthwhile exploring if you’d like to start engaging with China.
Why is there a need for the China Bible?
Imperfect information in the context of China, i.e. the lack of knowledge and experience to execute and/or judge the quality of your China market-entry partner, has been a hindrance to foreign businesses wanting to enter China since the beginning of the Silk Road.
As a result, many SMEs fall victim to expensive “China experts” that may or may not be able to provide the right networks, expertise and support they need. More often than not, the initial results of their China initiatives are disappointing and consequently the Chinese market gets a reputation of being too difficult to crack.
To combat this problem, we encourage you to invest in gaining a better understanding of China and your opportunities in the market i.e. acquiring the tools and knowledge to pick the right strategy and partners for your business.
