Trading with China: A business fraught with challenges

There are various barriers that could make the prospect of trading with China seem complicated and confusing.

As an importer, the challenges you may face could include the following:

  • Insufficient suppliers due to the difficulty of establishing relationships with new suppliers
  • Bad deals due to terms of trade skewed unfavourably towards the buyer
  • Limited negotiation powers due to dealing with top suppliers in China with the ability to negotiate the best conditions of trade
  • Lack of control over the quality of goods when ordering online from Chinese product websites
  • Language and cultural barriers which make negotiations difficult  
  • Advance payments required without control over whether quality goods will be delivered
