The statistic report from Ministry of Commerce of China shows that the “Going Abroad” enterprises are from all kinds of industrial/commercial sectors. The risks differ due to the diverse investments and industrial features. Overall, the main risks include legislation/regulations, tax, investment policy, market, finance, social, credit, environment, technology and management.  Political barriers, standards barriers, financing models, intellectual property and green barriers become the top difficulties that Chinese enterprises are facing. For most enterprises, political, legal, financial exchange rate, credit, environmental and social risks are the main risk now. The training under development will focus on the social, environmental, legal risk avoidance and how to take the social responsibility when the enterprises are going abroad.


Trainees will be leaders of the enterprises in China, which are investing or developing overseas projects.
