Approach and added value of Coolen China
How did our approach come about?
Everyone knows that the world has become “smaller” in recent years; among other things, the Internet has opened up international markets. A healthy development that makes all traders and producers accessible via the Internet. Furthermore, it is now easier to visit trade fairs in Europe and China under normal circumstances, as a plane ticket can be booked in no time. Because of this, we also notice that an agent, middleman, or commission agent is no longer of this age.
Furthermore, with the introduction of COVID, travel to China is no longer a foregone conclusion. Currently, the travel advisory for China is yellow, with a small portion in orange. The State Department advises against all non-emergency travel to Jilin Province and the city of Shanghai (orange area). Very strict lockdown measures also apply in Shanghai. Check the current travel advisory for China at this link. All in all, these restrictions give more reason to take advantage of our services.
Our added value consists of China’s knowledge of and experience in:
- Quality awareness
- Way of doing business
- Negotiation techniques
And our general knowledge about:
- International agreements
