# 010905Trends, Opportunities and Challenges of Exporting to China
This program is a forum for speakers from China and the U.S. to engage in a round table discussion relating to the legal and practical aspects of exporting to the People's Republic of China.
Despite the continuing economic down-turn, companies serving an international customer base are flourishing. Driven, in part, by an effort to reduce the trade deficit between the two countries, the U.S. government is encouraging efforts by local enterprises to look to China as a huge market for their products and services, among other things by highlighting economic opportunities in China's growing second tier cities and identifying industry sectors experiencing large demand from China's business and consumer markets.
However, in order for your clients to take advantage of the opportunities offered by expanding their market share into China (now the third largest trading partner with the U.S. after Canada and Mexico), it is critical to gain an understanding of the legal issues and/or barriers involved.
This timely program, offered both to in-person attendees and over the Internet via webinar, features speakers from both the public and private sectors discussing:
What opportunities are available and ways the U.S. government can facilitate your client's entry into the China market.
What are the U.S. export control and China import licensing requirements of which you and your clients should be aware?
How to help your client protect its intellectual property rights.
Other practical and legal aspects of which you and your clients should be aware.
What registrations and other preventive measures should be taken in China? What particular concerns arise in exporting technology-based products and services? How to avoid or address dual-use product issues.
What Chinese custom issues does your client need to know?
