C Consultancy Limited
China: Advisory & Corporate Service
We are a boutique advisory and corporate service firm with a focus on the advertising, digital and media space in China – a space that will no doubt be one of the biggest beneficiaries of a consumer driven Chinese economy.
In 2007, consumption finally took a leading role in driving China’s GDP growth.
The next year, during the summer of 2008, Beijing delivered a spectacular Olympics to the rest of the world.
Indeed, many thought it was full steam ahead as China powered forward in its economic transformation.
Then the 2008 global financial crisis descended, and with it, a series of consequential far-reaching effects on the globalized marketplace - the very marketplace that underpinned China's growth.
This has set China back a few steps but its resolve to re-balance its economy is stronger than ever.
China has made some progress, and current indications are encouraging but the way forward is still fraught with uncertainty.
In time (and this is a matter of time), an economically balanced China will present unprecedented opportunities for foreign companies to “ride” the next wave of consumer driven China growth.
This rationale seems straightforward, but as numerous foreign companies have found out, the “ride” is anything but straightforward. Over at C Consultancy, it’s our job to help foreign companies plot, prepare, and navigate their “rides" in China.
“China: Virgin Radio joint venture ends after dispute”, The Hong Kong Standard reported, stating that Richard Branson's Virgin Radio “has gone off the air in Beijing after falling out with its local partner over the financial terms of their relationship”.
