A business presence in China is often critical in liaising with local partners and customers, to have eyes and ears on the ground, as well as somewhere to host meetings when visiting. For many organisations, however, establishing such a presence is costly -not only in terms of money but especially in terms of the management time involved in establishing and then maintaining such a presence –and last but not least, there are concerns around how to stay flexible. Chopstick Club’s ‘Hosted China Office’ service offers a solution. Put simply, we provide clients with an office in Shanghai as well as one or more staff in a cost effective, flexible and ‘hassle-free’ way. The office is hosted within our service partner’s own office, and the staff are employed through them.
