This package, amongst other things, offered Chinese blue collar and peasant workers cash stimuli to purchase white goods made domestically, thus replacing the Western demand which dropped off in the Global recession. With wages rising and consumer demand spreading throughout larger swathes of the population, China will quite probably not be the "cheap" nation for a great deal longer. The McKinsey Chinese consumer survey http://www.mckinsey.com/locations/greaterchina/McKinsey_2008_Chinese_Consumer_Survey.pdf reported last year how approximately 15% of the affluent Chinese are willing to pay more for Western branded or "quality" goods. The smart money for business - irrespective of a B2B or B2B focus - is to get into China and start selling there. With correct initial strategy and pricing, establishing a brand, a presence and a customer base will surely pay dividends for those businesses with a longer term view. As China becomes more affluent across its society and price inflation makes Western services and goods more affordable, an established Chinese client portfolio could significantly enhance revenue as well as adding to company valuation. Nevertheless, setting up in China remains a complex, daunting and expensive task. If your business is positioned to brand or sell via the web, exploring setting up an initial low-cost presence via the World Wide Web could be the way to go. With the right partner, it could be profitable to explore China marketing avenues.
