Location Selection & Development Zones in China
On June 22nd, Dezan Shira & Associates' Assistant Manager of Business Intelligence Team, Zolzaya Erdenebileg, will join the EU Sino Round Table in Shanghai to share her knowledge on operational sites and industry zones selection in China as foreign investors.
In the first half of the panel, the topic will be focused on how companies of different types select their location now compared to in the past. Top criteria have been listed in many academic studies and empirical surveys before, which include access to skilled HR, proximity of a market and specific clients,presence of suppliers and service providers, general infrastructure. However, it is also clear that the industrial landscape is changing fast in China and requirements evolve as well. Thus, further discussion on the new criterias need to be done to follow up with these new changes.
In the second half of the panel, the topic will be focused on what makes zones different and how to evaluate how it fits each company's requirements. China has embarked in a large scale reorientation of its industry toward more productive, innovative and sustainable sectors. This shows in the stated objectives of most economic and technology development zones across the country. But not all zones were created equal. Whether it is because of the existing infrastructure and installed base, the type of vision of the local government, whether it is because of the
approach that the local authorities take to running the zone, what works for one company in one zone may or may not work for another one. These questions will be discussed fully in this section fo the panel.
