Doing business in China

How easy is it to make connections and communicate with business people? Most public service workers, professionals and business people in Shenzhen speak English. A majority of the young can speak English and Cantonese, as well as Mandarin (the predominant language in Shenzhen because of migration from around the country). In addition, the "Speak Shenzhen" campaign - recently launched across the city - encourages residents and government employees to speak and improve their English skills.

With the rapid growth and development of the Chinese national economy, increased urbanization, and higher levels of disposable income and household consumption, Chinese households are eager for new products that will increase quality of life and healthfulness. The potential investment opportunities in the Chinese biotech and healthcare market are huge.
