KBC Breakfast Seminar in Leuven - Doing Business in China
On 19 September 2016 Bart Horsten was a guest speaker at the second KBC-bank breakfast seminar in Louvain, Belgium. Representatives of KBC Hong Kong and KBC Shanghai presented the bank's services in Hong Kong and Mainland China, after which Bart talked about opportunities for Belgian SME's in China, illustrated by several case studies.
China is a vast, complex country and one of the largest consumer markets in the world. Despite its growth slowdown it still offers many opportunities for Belgian companies. However, it is best not to enter the Chinese market on your own, and it is more important than ever for entrepreneurs to be well prepared. Advice from trusted partners who are familiar with the Belgian side of the business and with a solid foot on the ground in Asia is essential, as is choosing the right business model.
The breakfast seminar provided an opportunity to discuss specific questions relating to your plans in Asia, learn more about possible payment methods or receive information on the financing options available.
This seminar was organised by Horsten International and KBC.
