Emerging markets such as China and India offer the advantage of an abundant supply of lower-cost labour, a growing middle class, and new vehicle financing programs. However, these markets also present potential risks.
China and India are still developing countries and the stability of their monetary policy and banking system are uncertain. The cost of licensing, raw materials and petroleum supplies are also potential obstacles to expansion.
Whether you are concerned about these markets as low-cost competition, or considering expansion, we can help you better understand the risks and opportunities.
We can conduct an evaluation of the potential tax, financing and transaction-related implications of your expansion and help you consider whether it would be advantageous to partner with a state-owned enterprise in China to smooth the path through the government's approval process.
