A piece of recommended reading this week for European technology companies considering R&D in China….
This Handbook for Industrial Collaboration highlights some of the main conditions and challenges, outlining the basic legal preparations necessary. It gives an introduction to ‘soft-landing’ provisions made by the Chinese government for foreign businesses and the different degrees of legal presence a company can have. It’s also a good guide to the support services available to tech-based EU SMEs entering China, with relevant contact details.
