The clear advantages that come from working with Great-Idea is that your business receives a tailor-made approach on how to enter the Chinese market, as you will get to benefit from some great experiences.
You can gain a unique insight of how to develop your strategy by visiting three to four cities that form part of the 21 model cities which have been setup by the government. These delegation trips enable you to meet local government officials and local enterprise members, hopefully resulting in strong ties being formed.
Taking a hands-on approach such as this means foreign businesses can also gain an understanding of China's culture, which in turn offers an idea of how Chinese markets work. The country's culture differs from that of the West, and by learning more about the country you can also learn more about how to function within it.
Great-Idea offers an intimate familiarity with the Chinese market, while their sales and professional contact network is a valuable resource for international clients with business interests in the Asian nation.
Through delegation trips, summits and an appreciation of Chinese and Western cultures, Great-Idea provides the face-to-face interaction that Chinese culture requires to help build trust and cooperation.
