Your guide through the Silk Road

Entry into the Chinese market

Do you intend to enter the Chinese market but need some guidance? We are focusing on the support of Czech entrepreneurs not only in starting cooperation with Chinese partners but also during their entry into the Chinese market. We are here to help you!

China has been consequently releasing barriers to foreign trade and even openly supports the entry of international investors into some segments of their industry. In 2017, a further relief will take place regarding the measures regulating the entry of foreign capital contained in the so-called “Catalogue for the Guidance of Industries for Foreign Investment“. Local governments were instructed to support international investors with tax incentives, incentives to buy real property and by creating new equal conditions for both the domestic and foreign entities. Therefore, such an opportunity should be taken.

Consulting to Chinese companies 

We are providing legal consulting to Chinese companies in acquisitions and business development in the Czech Republic. We will be instrumental in searching for business opportunities, performing their due diligence and taking care of any and all legal aspects of the transactions concerned. We will advise you regarding the import of goods and devices and their introduction into the Czech market.
