A Business Trip Report
Report on China Visit
This report gives a summary of my meetings with various representatives of the Chinese tea industry and aims to give an impression of what it is like to do business in China.
The aims of my visit to China were to:
- meet tea experts find more about the products.
- discuss the logistics of exporting tea from China.
I made two interesting contracts: Li Sung, a tea master and Qiu Li, an export agent. Li Sung really knows his subject and will be able to recommend to us the best teas to buy and what the sources for these are. Qiu Li has worked with other western firms before and will be able to deal with the necessary authorities for exporting the teas.
Both of them seem happy to work with us. Li Sung will want a fee for his consultancy and Qiu Li will work for us on a commission basis.
My advice for the person who follows this visit is:
- to spend more time getting to know these two partners. Li Sung in particular is not a man to be hurries and his interest appears to be more in the tea itself than the business.
- to make a firm proposal to Qiu Li that she can study and get back to us on
