Image for Global Business Club of Mid-Michigan: Doing Business in China


Thursday, May 2, 2013


Speaker Mr. Ning Shao, Director, Michigan China Center

China is the third largest export market for the U.S., and China is Michigan’s third largest export market, with $3.3 billion in export sales last year. Michigan’s exports to China grew 21% from 2011-2012; is your business part of this growth? Mr. Ning Shao will present a brief history of China’s reform over the past 30 years and China’s five-year plan, and why they matter to Michigan. He will cover eight lessons for doing business in China, as well as potential business opportunities and challenges in China for Michigan businesses.

The Global Business Club of Mid-Michigan focuses on global issues of interest to the mid-Michigan business community. The monthly GB Club luncheons provide outstanding speakers and relaxed networking opportunities. With extensive international experience, the speakers wrap personal insights around a practical and up-to-the-minute approach to conducting international trade.
