Present diverse possibilities and options for your business development in China and fully support your business endeavors
China has transformed from the world’s factory into the world’s largest market.
Conventionally, China was a factory to which companies outsourced production in light of its large population and low labor costs, but today it has transformed into a business-developing market due to the growth of its national power. China is no longer “a country where companies produce goods at lower costs”, and is now “a country where companies launch their business in light of the domestic demands of China”. Consequently, in effect many companies are conducting business in China, and it is anticipated that this trend will continue to increase in the future.
Meanwhile, as the term “China risk” implies, it is also true that there are various hurdles to overcome when conducting business in China, such as dealing with the various legal restraints that are different from other countries and the difficulty in acquiring various types of information. Rather than suddenly starting business with a Chinese business person that you were introduced through an acquaintance or met at a trade show, it is necessary to properly verify the background of such Chinese business person and proceed with the business development at a scale that is suitable for your company while protecting the rights of your company.
In order to take these measures, you need a guide with a local network and abundant business experience in both your country and China. The IPF Group has numerous offices and professionals in Asia, and can continuously support your business needs from the selection of local partners to the offering of guidance and protection of rights in a streamlined manner.
IP Forward can support your business development through partnerships with local business operators and government-affiliated organizations.
We can explore the optimal business development method for our clients, such as through business alliance, establishment of a joint venture or development of an agency, communicate with influential business operators, key persons and government agencies, and thereby support our clients by acting as a interface.

Acquisition of licenses and approvals (For China)
When developing business or products (cosmetics, pharmaceutical products, etc.) , it may be necessary to acquire licenses and approvals depending on the contents. IPF Group has resident specialized staff in both Japan and China, and can quickly and precisely file applications required for the acquisition of licenses and approvals.
Market research (For China)
In China where publicly available information is scarce in comparison to other countries, our researchers and consultants with abundant research experience in various business areas can collect the latest information of the market and provide highly accurate market research results. Today, companies need to grasp the potential risks of local suppliers and other business partners in advance and manage them properly. At IP Forward, we can conduct research for confirming such potential risks in the local supply chain based on the foregoing needs of our clients.

Misconducts such as divulgence of trade secrets and embezzlement are not limited to individuals, and are also committed by local corporations, specific business partners, agents and officals.
