Womble Carlyle, East West Bank, Deloitte Tax LLP to Present Seminar on “Challenges in U.S.-China Cross Border Transactions”

ATLANTA—U.S. companies have been doing business in China for the last 30 years, and interest in the area continues to grow, particularly among small and mid-sized companies. Additionally, more Chinese companies are venturing into the U.S. market, and the pace of these trends is expected to continue and increase in the near future.  In addition to challenges presented by cultural and language differences, navigating an unfamiliar business environment in the other country is equally, if not more, challenging.
On August 2, 2013, banking, tax and legal professionals from East West Bank, Deloitte Tax LLP, and Womble Carlyle will discuss some of the operational challenges that Chinese and U.S. companies will face when doing business in the other country and will provide practical advice in dealing with these challenges. Womble Carlyle attorney Guanming Fang will be among the speakers.

This half-day event is also a great opportunity for networking with the business community that has an interest in doing business between the U.S. and China. The event takes place from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Womble Carlyle’s Atlanta office.
The event is free, but registration is required. Click here to register.

Facebook in China Soon?

Facebook's 26-year-old Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is visiting China and trying to friend the Chinese authorities. Does this mean Facebook will be back in China soon so I can friend my friends in China? Probably not. As the article points out, it would be hard for Facebook to operate in China the same way it operates in the U.S., politically and culturally. But the visit is certainly a good thing. Once he sees the market potential of China with his own eyes, who is to say that the young and ambitious Zuckerberg won't be able to find a way to enter the market. Zuckerberg's visit coincides with the third round of the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue. Whether the conversation is about social networking, floating the Chinese currency, or improving human rights records, I am glad that the U.S. and China are having these conversations.
