Welcome to the course Due Diligence Essentials For Doing Business With China-Based Enterprises

International business is not without risk and careful selection of potential cooperation partners is imperative. This applies to China as well. The vast majority of enterprises located in China are legitimately established, doing business, and  seeking to develop their business operations in an honest way, compliant with domestic and international laws, regulations, and ethical standards. Unfortunately, a few that are not.

This course focuses on the essentials of desktop research based basic due diligence that should be performed at minimum when verifying the merit of a customer or supplier originating from mainland China. Attention goes out to developing the skills and competencies to identify, manage, and mitigate potential risks and identified risk areas by providing in-depth insight in laws, regulations, standards, best practices, and further criteria which can serve as a benchmark for cross referencing of information to be requested from and provided by the potential cooperation partner.

To support well informed business decisions, the content of this publication is supported by multiple detailed examples and checklists used for verification and cross referencing of information from multiple sources.
