HELP WITH BUSINESS IN CHINA
29 October 2012
Gateway to China is run by the CCLink Partners Association for its members...
who supply industrial control and communication equipment. The programme has two key parts; assistance with product development, and then promotion of these products across the Chinese market.
John Browett, CLPA’s general manager, explains: "While the uncertainty over the Euro’s future continues, European companies are looking to global markets to help protect their business from these economic woes. As is well known, China is probably the strongest growing economy in the world right now, and offers an attractive altern - ative to the EU. However, a key issue is how does a company do business there? CLPA has demonstrated that CC-Link is a key enabling technology for automation in China. In some industries such as flat panel displays and automotive, it has become a defacto standard. This position all helps to offer a large number of opportun - ities for European businesses looking to sell automation devices into this market. The Gateway to China ("G2C” for short) programme was created to assist European companies in exploiting them.”
