Understanding and managing the unknown can be daunting, particularly when it comes to entering new markets. Chinese companies expanding into the Australian market face many unknowns including: different taxation and regulatory regimes, cultural barriers, and communications issues. Local professional services advisors can help identify and explain these unknowns before they become issues. We can also broker valuable relationships, help liaise with local stakeholders and assist in important negotiations.
