China Market Consulting is one of TE+A’s specialist services geared toward small and medium US enterprises (SMEs). With a presence in China for over 10 years, China Market Consulting has evolved into a significant practice in TE+A. Our service helps solve issues facing US SMEs and smooth their way to the China venture. We will act as a bridge partnering with our SME clients who need adequate resources, capability, and experience from us, to make that happen.


China is the largest market in the world. With the rapid growth of its economy, China’s manufacturing and other business-related environments have improved substantially, and China’s consumption market has expanded ten-fold compared to a few years ago.

This creates tremendous business opportunities for US SMEs. However, SMEs mostly lack adequate experience with the China market, and they need an experienced partner to facilitate their China activities for the following reasons:

Unique Business Environment

  • Although China has evolved for over 30 years, and most of its economic system has completed the transition from government run planned economy to today’s market economy, the old system still leaves deep mark on local business environment, practices, and even on people’s mentality. Such influence may linger for another few decades. As a result, many economic policies or regulations are still quite different from those of a western market economy. Foreign companies are easily puzzled or led to make wrong decisions without the guidance of a partner who knows how to navigate this system.


  • Most Chinese people have very limited English capability, and cultures in different regions within the country vary significantly. With help of TE+A China Market Consulting, we can help our client overcome the language/culture barrier. Full and complete understanding between the SMEs and their Chinese counterparts is a key ingredient for a successful business arrangement.

Cost Factor

  • TE+A China Market Consulting tailors its service mainly toward SME clients with very reasonable and affordable service rates. We keep close engagement with our clients via emails and J-I-T update. We will make sure our client feels our presence and assistance in each of their moves to China.
