Chinese companies in the world

Chinese companies, Internationalization, Strategic


Over the next few years, we are going to see a major global expansion of Chinese companies in all sectors and in all countries. Obviously, this is an opportunity for companies whose future is not so clear-cut, be it because of their size, their technological weaknesses or their owners’ failing business interests (for reasons of age, family matters, diversification, etc.). However, it should be an opportunity for Chinese companies to expand their operations in Europe or in America. In many cases, such acquisitions (some of which have already been completed) will protect jobs and create many more. We should see the internationalization of Chinese companies as a great opportunity, and we should prepare ourselves for it and make sure we have the right strategies in place be it as partners, allies, suppliers or customers.
