Foreign-invested commercial enterprises are capable of conducting the following activities:
- Import, export, distribution and retailing
- Retailing ? selling goods and related services to individual persons from a fixed location, as well as through TV, telephone, mail order, internet, and vending machines
- Wholesaling ? selling goods and related services to companies and customers from industry, trade or other organizations
- Representative transactions on the basis of provisions (agent, broker)
These activities can also be achieved through other means such as agents. A FICE will, however, bring the control needed to secure quality, service level and bring you closer to your suppliers as well as enable you to invoice your clients in Chinese currency.
