“Doing business in China involves a series of challenges and risks that international companies need to address carefully in order to achieve success in the market. Some may face bribery, business fraud, anti-trust investigations or procurement bans from government and state-owned enterprises. Thus re-evaluating your China risk exposure, and adjusting your business strategies in order to continue to benefit from the opportunities offered by the China market is crucial. A new book written by Jeremy Gordon Risky Business in China demonstrates how a strategic approach to risk management and due diligence can not only reduce business risk in China, but also provide excellent business intelligence to support negotiations and business relationships.
In this context, the EU SME Centre is hosting a webinar that will shed light on the new reality of China risk and provide a guide to avoiding the pitfalls of doing business in China for EU SMEs. This webinar will:
1. Introduce China context and challenges for EU SMEs
2. Analyse business risks with Chinese characteristics
3. Explain due diligence approaches & applications
4. Suggest due diligence toolkit & checklist
5. Present the new risk reality for EU SMEs in China”

Reviews of “Risky Business in China”
“At the heart of this book lies the contradiction between the reality that investing and operating in China is a risky business but that China is simply too big to ignore. Any business person would do well to read this excellent brief on the perils of dealing with China’s…business landscape.” Tim Clissold, author, Mr. China
“THE Book on China Risks: This is as fine a business book as you can find on China. Gordon…lays out the risks businesses face by doing business in China and with China, and then he very systematically discusses what you can do to reduce those risks. Though not written as a how to, the information is so good and so detailed in here, that it becomes one. I have put this book on my list of must-read books for anyone planning to get involved with China. Most importantly, it made for an absolutely riveting read.” Dan Harris of Harris Moure / China Law Blog
