21 April Webinar – Export to China: Getting your Products to the Shelves and Protecting your IPR

This webinar provided top-level expert advice on how to get your products safely to the shelves in China while also protecting your IP rights. Before starting exports to China, the seasoned export manager of an EU SME has to gather intelligence data about a number of issues paramount for success including topics like which sort of competition can you expect in China, where to search for market information regarding the category of the products, how to conduct a store check, know importers involved, and other aspects which if neglected often increase costs, cause unnecessary delays, or even worse lead to take wrong decisions.

Another crucial aspect that EU SMEs should pay attention to is making sure their Intellectual Property (IP) rights are protected in China. If intellectual property has not been protected in the Chinese jurisdiction, there is potential for major financial consequences as counterfeiting and other IP infringements still prevail in China.
