Director of company communication and analysis at China General Chamber of Commerce (CGCC), Abby Li, mentioned, “Companies’ Chinese headquarters, their parent companies, their commitment to the US market seem to be shaking a bit.””Only 74 per cent of our responding companies are reinvesting their U.S. revenues back to their U.S. business again; that number was 90 per cent last year and 80 per cent in our 2020 survey,” he added.

Li mentioned one of many main challenges Chinese corporations face within the US is to construct their very own model and belief with American shoppers.

According to the CGCC survey, about 60 per cent of the respondents really feel they’ve a impartial or weak model presence within the US., Asia Nikkei reported.

Some of the challenges confronted by the Chinese corporations embody the dearth of belief in Chinese manufacturers by prospects, anti-China sentiments, lack of knowledge of selling within the US, and conflicts of branding methods between the native crew and headquarters, Li mentioned.

Because the local team doesn’t speak Chinese, doesn’t understand the headquarters, they leave, you lose your talent.””Now there’s a longer-term mindset and willingness to invest in relationships,” he added.
