Our Story:
Aiming at further business expansion, the client was looking for potential suppliers in China. They wanted to visit potential suppliers in China and to establish collaborations with them in the new energy sector - but it was very difficult for them to make intial contacts, arrange meetings, and efficiently negotiate with Chinese counterparts, mainly due to the language barrier and business cultures difference. They asked for our support, therefore we planned visit schedules for companies, arranged meetings with Chinese suppliers in the new energy sector, and accompanied them to all meetings. The client very much appreciated our cross-cultural support and interpretation, as it resulted in successful business collaboration with Chinese suppliers. The client has been collaborating with Chinese suppliers and continuously creating new business values since then.
