How China Reset Its Global Acquisition Agenda The China company seems unstoppable in the growth of economy, that perception is understandable, because no other nation come close to matching the China economics since late 1970s. The changes have been so rapidly but the China company sometimes failure in the cross border mergers and acquisitions. In 2000, China government realized local companies would need to be globally competitive to survived and allow local companies to mak acquisition. In 2006 the value of China M&A raise 11 times from 2003.
Almost all of the China early M&A pull out of or sell off their acquisitions. But China wasn’t paralyzed by failure, China raise from their failure because of their old traditional believe. That tradition says “if you get up one more time than you fall, you will make it through”, so China policy makers thought rationale for their global takeovers than thought about the brand or network which owned by the company that wants to be taken over by China companies.Now China’s companies no longer use their overseas to takeovers to gain market share aboard, they deploy them to strengthened their positions in the Chinese market, like concern got mineral assets, technologies and R&D facilities. By failing spetaculary in the early, China’s takeover artist could well have discovered how to succed in the future.
China’s global M&A strategy has evolved rapidly in the 1990s when the government swapped access to China’s market for technologies from aboard, it mostly allowed state owned enterprise to buy small equity stakes in overseas energy companies and natural resources producers. The number of foreign acquisition increase from 40 in 2003 to 298 in 2008.
However, many over takeovers, especially those executed by China’s private sector groups, ended quickly and badly. To understand why things went wrong, we studied three big…...

How China Rises

...How China rises What lessons can be drawn from China's spectacular and sustained economic growth? As Hu Jintau remarked at the 17th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party, the period since the previous Congress five years ago has been extraordinary. China's economic achievements have been arousing not only astonishment and admiration but also some anxiety. In the past twelve months alone, The People's Republic of China (PRC) has overtaken Canada as the biggest source of imports to the USA, and overtaken the USA as the biggest source of imports to the European Union. Concern about the low level of investment in Africa has been displaced by concern about the effects of the high level of Chinese investment in Africa; there is now even anxiety about the effects of investment by Chinese state-owned firms into the Western economies. The Chinese Communist Party is also expressing concerns. The themes of its 2007 Congress included protection of the environment and the achievement of social harmony. According to some estimates, China has displaced the USA as the world's biggest source of greenhouse gases. Inequality is rising as fast as pollution: China now has over 800 individuals with a personal wealth of more than a hundred million US dollars each, up from 500 in 2006; while the average income in rural areas of China is 480 dollars per year. Made in China. Hu Jintau's remark on the extraordinary nature of the most recent years can be faulted in only one sense: China......

How Global Brands Compete

... Stanford A. Westjohn MKTG 3140-001 25 March 2013 “How Global Brands Compete” Article In this article “How Global Brands Compete,” the author discusses the influence of global brands and non-global brands on consumer purchases. The author also expresses the idea of products and services in which Theodore Levitt perceived the global market. As the economy continues to integrate, global branding seemed to decrease. Consumers in most of the world countries have trouble relating to the generic products and communications that resulted from companies’ least-common-denominator thinking. They also completed research to determine the brands and their impact on consumers in different countries. For example, the two-stage research they created in 2002. They conducted research in 41 countries and identified characteristics of consumers that associate themselves with global brands. They also surveyed 1,800 people in 12 nations to determine the importance of consumers purchasing products. In “How Global Brands Compete”, the author suggests the characteristics that consumers search for with global brands. The three characteristics that were provided were quality signal, global myth, and social responsibility. Quality signal is very important in which consumer’s judge their decisions based on reasonable prices. Quality signal makes up for 44% of the brand preferences. Global myth suggests the symbols of the global brands. “Global brands make us feel like the citizens of the world,......

How Nike Figured Out China

...Marketing in Asia: How Nike Figured out China The China market is finally for real. To the country’s new consumers, Western products mean one thing, status. They can’t get enough of those Air Jordans. Nike swung into action even before most Chinese knew they had a new hero. The moment hurdler Lui Xiang became the country’s first Olympic medalist in a short-distance speed event – he claimed the gold with a new Olympic record in the 110 m hurdles last August. Nike launched a television advertisement in China showing Liu destroying the field and superimposed a series of questions designed to set nationalistic teeth on edge. “Asians lack muscle?’ asked one. ‘Asians lack the will to win?’ Then came the kicker, as Liu raised his arms above the trademark Nike Swoosh on his shoulder. ‘Stereotypes are made to be broken’. It was an instant success. ‘Nike understands why Chinese are proud’ says Li Yao, a weekend player at Swoosh-bedecked basketball courts near Beijings Tiananmen Square. Such clever marketing tactics have helped make Nike the icon for the new China. According to a Hill and Knowlton survey, Chinese consider the Middle Kingdom’s ‘coolest brand’. Just as a new Flying Pigeon bicycle defined success when reforms began in the 1980’s and a washing machine that could scrub potatoes became the status symbol a decade later, so the Air Jordan – or any number of Nike products turned out in factories in Asia – has become the symbol of success for China’s new......

How Cheap Labor in China Impact Domestic and Global Economy

...How Cheap Labor in China Impact Domestic and Global Economy Cheap labor means that the people who make the product work under unfair work trends, such as low wages and often underage workers. Cheap labor causes China to become an important component of "World factory". For a long time, the inexpensive and rich labor power is an advantage that China participates he international trade. However, along with a progress of technology, the competitive advantage of cheap labor in China is weakening gradually.(The Challenge,2008) In the 1990s, the yearly growth rate of China’s manufacturing industry average per person real wages was 7.1%, and the annual growth rate of labor productivity was 6.75%, showing these two targets almost equal. However, yearly average real growth rate of labor costs including non-staff costs reached 10.4%, and it was 1.5 times of yearly average growth in labor productivity. For all this, in the late 90's, the relative level of China’s labor costs was still lower than the relative level of international labor productivity. In 1999, the labor productivity of China was 9.08% of the U.S rate, 21.98% of South Korea’s rate and 51.50% of Mexico’s rate; during the same time, labor costs of China is 3.94%,11.27% and 35.66% of these countries’ rates respectively. The relative level of China’s labor costs is only equal to 40%-70% of the labor productivity’s relative levels in some developed countries such as the U.S (Advantages Trade,2007). As a result, China can make......

Global Expansion: China

...Methodology The primary goal of a risk management plan is to understand what risks the project will be exposed to. The Project team supports the premise that “risk management goals and objectives should be consistent with and supportive of the enterprise’s business objectives and strategies.” Therefore, the risk management plan associated with this expansion utilizes the company’s vision and strategic objectives as its foundation. The risk management plan was developed with the goal of assisting the organization in improving its current capacity to identify, prioritize, and respond to the risks associated with the expansion in to China. As previously stated the primary objective of the risk management plan is to increase the organization’s understanding of the risk associated with this expansion project. In order to effectively utilize risk management the risk management plan must develop a “common understanding” of these risks. The benefits of a common understanding of risk across the organization structure are numerous. For instance, the risk management plan will help to achieve cost savings through better control of both internal and external resources. One way this control will be realized is by developing safeguards that impact the organization’s earnings. This cost savings then makes it possible for the organization to allocate capital more efficiently. Development of the risk management plan utilized the project’s Scope Statement, Cost, Schedule, and......

Mexico or China, Managing a Global Network

...EXECUTIVE SUMMARY FOR MEXICO OR CHINA, MANAGING A GLOBAL NETWORK CASE Introduction – A US manufacturer of wireless transmission components sources its components from two assembly plants, one in China and another in Mexico. Sourcing the components from China is cheaper but has a lead time of 4 weeks whereas sourcing from Mexico is expensive with a lead time of 1 week. A Dual-sourcing strategy or a policy has to be developed for a wireless transmission component with a mean demand 40 units/period and standard deviation of 20 units/period. Analysis – The main trade-off involved in the sourcing mode decision is the one between the profit earned by the company in the end and the demand that is met toward the end. If there is sufficient inventory on-hand in the last period, although the demand can be easily met, the company would lose on the profits. However, if the inventory is less in the end, even though the demand may not be met due to a shortage, the loss incurred due to on-hand inventory would be comparatively less. Initially, the sourcing of the component shall be from China with the order quantity equal to the order up-to level arrived at using the lead time demand for 4 weeks. Thus, an order is placed to China to source 225 products. Following the order from China, nothing is sourced from either China or Mexico for the next 3 weeks. Post this, each week an order with a quantity equal to the demand in that particular week is placed to China. Meanwhile, nothing is......

Holt, John A. Quelch, and Earl LTaylor I More than two decades ago, Harvard Business School professor Theodore Levitt provocatively declared in a 1983 HBR article, "The Globalization of Markets" that a global market for uniform products and services had emerged. He argued that corporations should exploit the "economics of simplicity" and grow by selling standardized products all over the world. Although Levitt did not explicitly discuss branding, managers interpreted his ideas to mean that transnational companies should standardize products, packaging, and communication to achieve a leastcommon denominator positioning tbat would be effective across cultures. From that commonsense standpoint, global branding was only about saving costs and ensuring consistent customer communication.

How China Reshape It Car Design

...How China's Dirty Cities Are Reshaping Car Design Across World For global automakers, China is becoming the new California. The U.S. state grabbed the lead a few years ago in establishing fuel-efficiency standards to clean up urban smog. Now, as China struggles with its air-pollution crisis, Beijing increasingly influences the models and technology Detroit, Europe and Japan sell around the world. In response to government rules and incentives that have spurred electric-car sales in China, automakers are beefing up their global electric-vehicle and plug-in offerings. General Motors Co. plans to make a plug-in hybrid version of every Cadillac model. Ford Motor Co. has budgeted $4.5 billion to develop 13 new EVs and plug-in hybrids by 2020, and China is a big reason for both automakers. Daimler AG’s Mercedes-Benz is selling five plug-ins in China, two of which also sell in the U.S. Similarly, BMW AG is engineering plug-in hybrids it sells worldwide to meet China’s electric-drive mandates. “Originally we started with California rules, so the starting point for us was clearly the U.S.,” said Klaus Froehlich, BMW’s global head of product development. “Now, China is a key market. It is very important and the regulations are quite difficult.” Decisions made in Beijing already are affecting cars people drive in Dallas and Los Angeles. That’s because automakers tend to design new models to sell in multiple regions -- and China is the world’s largest auto market. GM engineered its new...
