The China Business Handbook is unmatched for richness and clarity of information and for invaluable tips on doing business in China. After spending 35 years in China, and then another 30 years as a China business consultant, I find it indispensable.

This is an outstanding resource – focused, well-organised, and compiled with contributions from an impressive selection of authoritative China hands. Whether you need help finding the right joint venture partner, finding your way around the Chinese hinterland, or finding your way through the vagaries of China’s bureaucracy, The China Business Handbook is the place to turn.

Ted Plafker, Journalist and Author of Doing Business in China: How to Profit in the World’s Fastest Growing Market
The China Business Handbook serves as a highly accessible, A to Z one-stop resource for those visiting China for the first time to do business or those, like me, who live and work here. Keep it handy – you'll need it.

Jim Gradoville, CEO, WWF-China (Worldwide Fund for Nature)
Year after year, The China Business Handbook remains the essential reference tool for businessmen in China. Its compact size packs a lot of background information on each province. It is by far the best of its kind, and it remains one of the gifts my customers appreciate most.
