China is a difficult market to penetrate and operate because doing business in China is so different from the way business is done in the West. The graveyard of failed foreign enterprises in China is a testimony to that….It takes years to understand China’s business culture but with the help of professionals this process can be dramatically shortened and mistakes can be avoided.
This is why we created Agriplus Agricultural Hub – AAH
The management team of AAH is the team which established Agriplus Ltd. back in 2010.
We know China & the Chinese way of doing business because we are Chinese
We know the Agriculture market because this is what we have done for most of our professional lives
Our extensive knowledge & connections are now available to you!
AAH is located in Changzhou, Jiangsu, a modern city rated in the top 10 model cities in China, with 6M inhabitants and 180 km NW of Shanghai. Changzhou has 2 train stations, an airport and seaport. The fast train to Shanghai takes 1 hour and to Beijing 5 hours. Changzhou is close to Shanghai but housing and other real estate costs are much lower. It has several universities and an educated labor force that costs much less than Shanghai.
