China Business Information

API is a leading business information provider. This section of the website provides up to date commercial information on key companies in China – and on whole industry sectors throughout the mainland. We provide our clients with the most reliable, high quality and competitively priced business information on China.

One of the key problems that businesses face when approaching the China market is the lack of reliable information. Every market across the world is unique, and these differences need to be taken into account by companies hoping to expand into new territories. China has these differences too. You will face a number of business issues, familiar and unfamiliar, and good commercial information will help you avoid pitfalls and make the most out of your operations.

Why China? China is the great economic success story of the past 30 years. Since the “reform and opening-up” policy was introduced in 1978, China has changed beyond recognition. A Soviet-styled planned economy has transformed into a vibrant market-oriented economy and hundreds of million people have been lifted out of poverty.

Well known for its manufacturing capability, China is the largest global producer of consumer and industrial products, among hundreds of other goods. It is also the world’s largest consumer of raw materials. Opportunities abound for those entrepreneurs looking to the future.
