Business exit strategies must be considered when starting a business establishment in China in terms of implementing future restructuring strategies or controlling potential risks. Considering business exit strategies directly, or even developing a broad idea, will greatly benefit European SMEs guarding against business risks and facilitate their business restructuring plan in the future.

In this context, the EU SME Centre and the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in China will be organising a training seminar in Beijing on 28th May 2014, providing European SMEs information on different business exit options and procedures in China. This seminar will focus on:

  • Different circumstances under which a business exit might be necessary
  • How to choose the right option for your business – representative office, wholly foreign-owned enterprise, joint venture
  • General procedures to wrap up your business legally and relevant authorities you will have to deal with
  • Practical examples in the form of case studies
  • Risks of ending business illegally in China
