Danone’s wrangle with Wahaha in China 1.Danone’s early stage market entry mode 1.1 How led to difficulties 1.2 Why this mode was chosen 1.3 Entry mode change over time 1.1 Danone entered the Chinese market in the late 1980s by founding Danone Yogurt Company. However, lack of market knowledge that most of the consumers had no refrigerators to store the products and price was too high for the local consumers led to fact that Danone relied heavily on joint venture as the early stage of market entry mode. In 1996, Danone started to cooperate with Wahaha. The Wahaha joint venture was established, while Danone and Bai Fu Qin invest in the joint venture and Wahaha shared its local assets and resources. At the beginning, the Wahaha
Mattel had in China the Market-seeking motive, with their expansion, they wanted to get a part of the Chinese toy market and wanted the company to achieve more growth from a market that weren’t their domestic. The falling sales in the years before gave them the last kick to open the flagship for Barbie oversea. From Mattel's $3 Billion in annual sales only 5 percent were coming from China, the company thought there was a lot more opportunity for Barbie to grow with the Chinese sales. Mattel has clearly the strategy of internationalization. They wanted a long-term sale expansion and attempted to use the same strategy, as they use in America, on Chinese toy market.

Key words: furniture, market prosperity, design depression, furniture education Abstract: The unprecedented grand 2006 International Furniture Fair was held in Milan, but no single enterprise from China, a country with the largest furniture export volume in the world, attended the Fair. Furniture manufacture industry in China shows unprecedented prosperity, but the furniture design in this country is at extreme low ebb. Furniture education in universities is also not optimistic, and is facing a lot of problem, even bright prospects lying ahead. The one week 2006 Milan International Furniture Fair has closed down. As a witness of the Fair, I personally felt the spectacular event of this world famous fair and deeply realized the huge gap in furniture design between China and the world.
HISTORY OF PLASTIC AND PLASTIC BAG INDUSTRY California made headlines this fall when it became the first U.S. state to place a ban on single-use plastic shopping bags. But how did we get here: from just a few grocery stores offering customers plastic bags in the late ‘70s to today, with Americans using 100 billion plastic bags each year? Just how did the plastic bag become both so popular in our society and so problematic to the environment? In 1965, Swedish company Celloplast came up with the design on which all modern plastic shopping bags are based: a tube of plastic sealed at the bottom to allow for the packaging of goods, an open top to insert such items into the bag and handles for convenient carrying. This model bag, which later became
To add on, they missed out marketing in a large area: China. China has a US$13.5 billion online gaming industry and Xbox One was the first console to be released since the law prohibiting production and sale of gaming consoles was rescinded. With 598million estimated number of active social networking users in China, Microsoft could have rode on this more by advertising on social media sites such as Weibo and Tencent’s QZone. According to the Business Insider, Chinese gamers are not used to paying for games. Microsoft could thus release more games that charge fees after a free trial to help boost
I know, but I did anyway and built a pretty large network of American universities that are looking to take rich Chinese students without giving much thought to their previous academic performances. I (probably) had joined them on the sole fact that a high-ranking Chinese official (or his wife) was the largest shareholder. I had falsely believed that any business with guanxi in China will do well. It turned out, the Chinese guy I so trusted as a great guanxi wasn’t “all in” and had neither financial nor operational commitment. The business closed within a few months after my joining.
During the 1970’s the Chinese government became aware of the rapid increase of the population and decided to take action. By 1979, the one-child policy was introduced where; women weren’t allowed to marry until they were 20 years old and men weren’t allowed to marry until they were 22 years old, and couples were only allowed one child, unless their first child was a girl, in which case they were allowed a second child in the hope it was a boy. China’s one-child policy prevented the births of an incredible 400 million babies, which saved the country from overpopulation and possible, poverty. Population growth has slowed down since, but it created a lot of problems; most of the Chinese prefer sons, so their daughters were left to die after birth or placed in orphanages, which left China with a gender imbalance. It is estimated that by 2020 women will be outnumbered by 30 million men, which is why the one-child policy is now more relaxed in rural areas.
In 1999, mainland China accounted for 29% of incoming visitors, and Taiwan and Southeast Asia for 59%. At the time of Hong Kong Disneyland’s establishment, the mainland Chinese economy was booming, and its citizens were gaining formidable purchasing power. China’s GDP was increasing at an unprecedented rate of 9% per year, reaching upwards of RMB 3.9 billion in the first half of 2000 alone, making it the newest member of the world’s seven largest economies. In addition, China’s purchasing power parity (PPP) was ranked second in the world, behind only that of the U.S., leading to an escalation in outbound tourism. In recognition of this phenomenon, the Chinese government relaxed some of its travel
