About the topic:
Having witnessed the tremendous trade and investment growth between China and the Netherlands, Mr. Wu Jia found that many SMEs (Small and Medium size Enterprises) paid pricy lessons in starting business in foreign market, where cross-cultural issues play major role. To help audience on better understanding the most likely cultural issues lead to business failure, Mr. Wu Jia will share his experience in helping Dutch and Chinese companies in starting business in foreign market.

By facilitating trade mission, matchmaking and relation building in the past three years on the job, he is now working together with Dutch trade and investment promotion organisations on advising Chinese companies’ starting up and development in the Netherlands and Dutch companies to do business in China.
