Post-pandemic China is a consumer market redefined. While some of the fallout from the pandemic reflects the acceleration of market trends already under way, such as live commerce and hybrid physical and digital consumer events, others have emerged as a reaction to the crisis and its impact.
Establishing a successful trade partnership, with clear communication and mutual understanding, is key to doing good business in China.
China is home to one of the world’s most dynamic e-commerce and retail ecosystems. Today you’ll discover the opportunities for your brand in the retail sector.
China’s food and drink market often offers unexpected and unusual opportunities for UK brands. With ‘Brand Britain’ still in high-demand amongst safety and health conscious Chinese consumers, discovering your niche in the Chinese market can lead to huge rewards for UK exporters.
With the unparalleled power of Chinese social media and e-commerce influencers over their followers, there is little doubt that Key Opinion Leader (KOL) marketing should be a key consideration for any international brands setting their China marketing budget.
