Have you ever had trouble choosing the right individual to fulfill an important role? Or wondering if you have trusted the right person to allocate power to? CanCham is honoured to partner with Woodburn Global, who is specialized in inbound investment to China and Hong Kong, to help you identify the right fit for your organization.

Choosing the right people for your organization and allocating the right powers

Part of the structuring procedure of your China company is choosing the right individuals within your organization to fulfill the roles required by the Chinese government. This seminar will explain the positions and the roles and responsibilities associated with each position. As is true of so many things related to China, creating the right foundation at commencement will virtually always be cheaper and better for you in the long run.

There are numerous stories to share of individuals within the corporate structure who have "gone rogue" because of a bad management structure. In addition in any business, one-person delegates power to another to look after his/her interest. But how to ensure the latter doesn't abuse this power for his/her own benefit is a classic dilemma. It is as pressing an issue in China as in any other country, but Chinese laws and practices deal with this problem differently than most.

While delegating power always requires a degree of trust, there are a few simple measures every foreign investor should consider mitigating the risks its Chinese subsidiary is exposed to. As with any situation involving people they are nearly always very difficult and very expensive and oftentimes downright ugly to resolve.
