Hi, a friend of mine wants? to open up an advertisement agency here in shanghai. In Europe he is already doing this business and he is planning to expand his business to china. He owns a ?full service? agency that designs events, exhibitions, road shows and product launches for the travel, automobile, real estate and luxury industry. As an example I would like to point you to the sponsor pavilions during the Beijing Olympics.
I know that there are already quite a few foreign companies working here ?sucessfully? so my questions are:
1. is it possible to get such a company registered as a consulting wfoe or what are the alternatives ?
2. Can he offer the same ?full service? he is offering in Europe? If not, what can he offer?
3. Where can I find more information?s about entry barriers in the advertisment (or Media) industry. (English or Chinese).
