[Shanghai] Investing in China: Don’t be a Victim of Fraud


Recently, we have seen a continuation of the trend of strong interest from international companies to invest and build businesses in China. While there are many advantages to this, there still remain various issues relating to market entry that can create potential barriers for international business. One of the most significant of these issues relates to fraud that still exists in some businesses practices.

– Typical transactional risks in China
– Fraud trends in China: schemes and sector trends
