Opportunities and Challenges for Slovakian SMEs in the Chinese market

This event is co-organised with the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO).

China’s continued robust economic growth is helping to create new business opportunities for Slovakian SMEs across many industry sectors. Nonetheless, doing business in the country is still a challenge for many companies. This half-day session will provide the opportunity to learn more about some of the main challenges that exist for SMEs in China, including due diligence when looking for a local partner and appropriate steps when legal disputes arise.
