First of all, I know when are on Forumosa -
This is just about some basic thoughts as nothing is planned yet.
Does anyone ever had a business in China ( i mean a physical shop)?
If yes, is it as complicated as having one in Taiwan?
Regarding the rest ( i mean, Chinese culture, Chinese people, Chinese behavior, size of China etc… ), i have already my opinions.
Someone on this forum may had done it?
surely its more complicated? don’t you need a chinese business partner (preferably one you can trust) to do anything over there?
it is just talk right now -
so i am just trying to see if someone in this forum have done it in the past and can share some insights
It’s going to be a hundred times more complicated than opening one in Taiwan. More corruption, more restrictions for foreigners, you can’t even own a business by yourself in the PRC.
China has a rapidly growing economy (it’s not the 8.8888% they claim but it’s still up there), and Tier 1 cities are bigger and have more multinationals than Taiwan. But in terms of the paper work and issues - you’ll get swamped.
yeah - that’s for sure.
Greater rewards is the main thing.
well same over here
well many Taiwanese have relatives there so from my wife side, will absolutely not be an issue
i know it is way complicated, but nothing has ever been easy for me ( LOL) - everything is a stepping stone, and i feel like rewards are greater over there.
can still be in Taiwan 3 weeks a month ( what every Taiwanese business man do actually).
i was more into learning about personal experiences.
Which kind of business do you have there?
