China- Let's Talk Business
Date & Time: Thursday 24th June (9:30-10:00 am BST)
After-school education companies in China are now experiencing the biggest policy blow, namely ‘Double Reduction’, a latest regulation that after-school education institutions are forbidden to offer teaching programs outside the usual school terms, and that education institutions and training centres whose principal business focus is academic subjects and personal development are now forbidden to list on the stock market.
From another perspective, this policy blow elaborates one of the most typical risks foreign businesses have to be aware of when navigating in China education market, which requires them to closely track and follow the changes in the regulatory environment.
Any global strategy is incomplete without a presence in China. So, how do you get ready?
