Good afternoon everyone, my name is Han pu. I’m glad to present my current event today.
When speak of trade between United States and China, the first that comes into our mind might be the big trade deficit from China to United States. However, have you ever think about the other side, what does America export to its third largest foreign market China? Last Tuesday I read an article from Chinabusinessview’ website, named What America exports to china. In this article, the author list the top 10 exports from America to China with the facts and numbers related. These products could be divided these products into three types. Type one are agriculture products including Soybean, cotton and corn. Type two is aircrafts and vehicles including Civilian aircraft, Passenger vehicles with small engines, and Passenger vehicles with large engines. Type three is scrap including Copper materials, Aluminum Materials Electronic integrated circuits. Then I draw of pie graph for the top ten exports. You’ll find that the agriculture product ranked absolute first among them, with nearly half of the share. Yes, it is the agriculture products, not the iphone, or ipod, not the cars or industrial materials, that China import most form America.

Until now, you may be wondering why does China, as a big former agriculture country, import so many agricultural products from America? And Is there any potential concerns about this situation? Next I would analyze these two questions.
First of all, as a big country with large population, limited water and land resource, China has a high demand in agriculture products to feed over 1.3 billion people.

Secondly, as with the economic development in China, the living standard of Chinese people is improving, so that they want more high quality and nutrient imported food, such as America soybeans.

On the other hand, more of them turn to…...

What Would Happen If China Open Its Capital Market

...Introduction After the financial crisis in 2008, countries all over the world suffered a recession. However, some countries were still doing well and growing. China is definitely one of those countries. China has achieved an average annual growth above 8% in GDP since 2008; which a rarity in today’s economic climate. At the same time China’s capital markets have been in an expansionary mode for years. Both the bond and the stock markets rank 3rd in the world (FAQ: China’s Bond Market), right behind the U.S and Japan. Despite all these achievement, China has yet to exploit its full potential as its financial markets have still not been fully opened yet. In our report, we will make an analysis of what will happen if China opens their capital markets. First, we will introduce the Chinese capital markets, second discuss the current state of the stock and bond markets, then give a description of what should be done before opening the markets and finally conclude our analysis with what will happen after markets open. China’s capital markets do not have a long history. After the civil war in 1949, mainland China had a stock exchange market called the “Tianjin” Stock exchange market. However, the market was shut down in 1952 because of political acts that targeted capital markets and capitalists. After that date, the capital market remained close until the “opening up” policy set in. At that point, the stock markets reopen in the early 90s (Shanghai Stock Exchange and Shenzhen......

What If Bing Quits China

...of 2010, our biggest competitor Google search engine indicated that it threatened to exit China internet. In December, 2009, Google revealed that hackers tried to access their customers’ email accounts on its servers. It was a huge shock to the world. One of the biggest search engine companies decided to exit the largest internet market of China. It not only became the issue of politics between the two countries but also brought some impacts to its competitors. Being forced to censor the search results was the most important reason for giant Google to quit China. And Google's chief legal officer David Drummond pointed out in a blog post that at least 20 other large companies from a wide range of businesses were similarly targeted as the same reason. As another biggest company in the world, should our Microsoft’s Bing search engine follow Google exiting China? It becomes a big issue for us. Should our Microsoft’s Bing search engine follow Google exiting China? What if Bing quits China? What will be the results? Microsoft's chief research and strategy officer, Craig Mundie, confirmed in an interview with China Daily that Bing now has less than 1 percent of Chinese market share. Will Microsoft’s Bing take the high road or the low road in order to gain a bigger piece China's fast-growing Internet market?

China Export and Import Advantages

...INTRODUCTION China’s emerging wine market presents an important industry segment for Australia’s wine industry to target.  The growth in Chinese consumption of wine in sales volume is influenced by improved standards of living. The growth of consumption has increased the number of imported wines in the Chinese market, making China a lucrative market for Australian to enter. Both countries’ consumer behavior is important to understand as by exploring the way consumers think and the physical actions that result from these feelings, the crucial reasons behind how they spend their money can be established. This report examines the differences in consumer behavior of Chinese and Australia wine consumers. The purpose of the report is to strategically analyze the effects of consumer behavior theories, market segmenting, targeting, positioning and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs in order to provide recommendations for further opportunities for Australian exporters.

...important conclusions of each chapter if the manager of the particular company reads this summary, he or she will have gathered enough essential information to make reading the rest of the report unnecessary (max.1 page) Opportunities to choose the United States as an export country are the growth of the population, the high GDP per capita and the location of our target group. But the biggest opportunity is the increasing popularity of Asian food and the growth of the amount of Asian restaurant that comes with it. On the other hand there are some threats when exporting to the U.S. The exchange rate of the U.S. dollar, cultural differences and the required visa you need for visiting the U.S. Table of contents List of figures (if used) List of tables (if used) List of abbreviations (if used) Chapter 1 Introduction We have chosen to import Asian Gastronomy Interior from China and Thailand, and export these Interior to the United States and Australia.

Chinas Imports and Exports

...brought into a country. China is second in overall Imports for the world Behind the US. EU is not counted in this ranking system because it is multiple countries. China's biggest import is Oil now. Some of the other exports are Industrial Supplies and Mechanical Machinery, optical and medical equipment, metal ores, plastics, and organic Chemicals. Chinas top five Import partners Are Japan (9.8%), South Korea (9.2%), America (7.1%), Germany (5.1%), and Australia (4.3%). Again if we were including the EU it would be at the top at 12.1% but because it is multiple counties and we are focusing on single countries these are the top 5. China's imports total up to about $1.753 Trillion Dollars according to the CIA fact book and the year that they measured this is 2012. Regionally, almost half of China's imports come from the East and Southeast Asia. Out of the five busiest ports in the world, three are in China. Imports for China are expected to rise. Exports We also know that Exports of goods and services represent the value of all goods and other market services provided to the rest of the world. Since the late 1970s China has moved from a closed, centrally planned system to a more market-oriented one that plays a major global role. China became the largest exporter in the world in 2010. However if you were to count the European Union it would be above China. A reason for china being ranked number one on the export list is because labor is so cheap in China that more......

What Panasonic Learned from China

...All you need to do is to answer all the questions for the different discussions (200 words each) Topic 1: What factors affect the consumer's perceptions of fast food and its services? Summary: The two studies by M.K. Brady et al and Kim et al are concerned with the same question: what factors affect the consumer’s perceptions of fast food and its services? But while Kim et al. focuses on American college students to find out what factors that segment finds favourable in a fast-food service, M.K. Brady et al takes their study to the international level to find out how different cultural values can affect the consumer’s behavioural intentions relative to the fast-food industry and its services. Both articles agree that the majority of America customers prefer to trade-off between quality of services and expenditure required (expense-conscious). The American consumer tends to judge consumption of goods and services with a ‘neutral’ and logically based mindset; always asking the question of “is it worth my money?” Kim et al claims that due to relatively inexpensive, quick and convenient service, fast-food is becoming more and more popular among college students in North America. How could restaurants attract this emerging market? Further discussing in particular the college student market, and selecting Wendy’s, Burger King and McDonald’s as target examples will figure out the way to attract college students in fast-food services restaurant. Several factors are taken into......

Economic Relationship Between the U.S. and China

...the United States resumed its economic relationship with the nation of China; in 1979, a bilateral trade agreement was signed by the two countries. Today, China has become one of the largest trading partners with the United States, trailing only behind Canada and Mexico. The United States benefits with this trade agreement due to the large and growing consumer market for U.S. firms and the Chinese imports cost less due to the low labor cost in China. The nation of China benefits due to the increased integration with world economy through overseas education and trade, creating awareness on issues such as environment and human rights. The numerous benefits of this union between two powerhouses of the world economy bring many negative issues. The first issue that affects many Americans today is the loss of jobs due to outsourcing and importing rather than producing goods here in the United States. From the years 2001 to 2010, the trade deficit with China caused the loss of 2.8 million jobs in the U.S. This affects the Untied States’ economy by increasing the number of Americans receiving unemployment insurance and food stamps. One example of this outsourcing is Nike, Incorporated which produces an estimated forty percent of its shoe output in Chinese factories. However, Nike Inc. justifies this outsourcing because profit margins are dependent on labor cost. Another issue with the union between U.S. and China is the lack of flexibility of China’s exchange rate. Many experts......

Exploring the Prospects for U.S-China Trade

...Exploring the prospects for U.S-China trade With the significant development of economy, China has already exceeded Japan, becoming the second largest economic entity in the world. From 1949 to the present, China's economy grew annually from 4 to 10 percent. There is no doubt that the export contributes a lot to China’s GDP; meanwhile, United States just replaced the European Union, turning into China’s largest trade partner last year. It is obvious that China and U.S. are closely connected in the modern economy. Since U.S. and China are inextricably linked, I would like to analyze the trade between U.S. and China in this paper, and find out what are influencing the value of trade between the two countries. First of all, there are some economic concepts that need to be explained. China has a favourable balance of trade, which means nowadays China exports more than imports; however, U.S. has run a trade deficit every year for more than thirty years, which means U.S. imports more. The import and export are always connected with the exchange rate. For instance, if you are exporting and your local currency becomes strong then your products become more expensive for your buyers. If you are importing and your local currency becomes weak then the products you are importing become more expensive. As we can see, China is exporting more to the U.S., so I would assume that one of the reason why U.S. would import more from China may be the exchange rate of China’s currency Yuan is......

Now that we have a general panorama, we can concentrate on the......

What Panasonic Learned in China

...manufacturing in China or managing customer service out of India, and they’re especially pleased when they make profits selling to customers in such markets. But regardless of their global footprints, American, European, and Japanese companies remain fundamentally American, European, and Japanese. The home country’s executive offices too often have an “us” and “them” mind-set and encourage a one-way flow of ideas and directives—from us in the home country to them in emerging markets. Local initiatives are expected to stay local. Companies do this to minimize cost and risk, and because they believe that their brands already hold enough cachet to woo emerging-market consumers. Multinationals may bein global markets, but they’re often not of them; therefore, they’re unable to expand their products’ appeal to broader audiences around the world. It’s surprising, then, when an established giant goes to an emerging market seeking the usual benefits of cheap labor and low manufacturing costs and comes back a changed company. That’s what has happened to Panasonic in China over the past decade. After the Japanese company’s leaders saw growth slow in China, they realized that they needed to engage more deeply with customers there. Panasonic’s desire to do that was rather remarkable because of the historical animosity between Japan and China, which can suddenly flare up. In October 2012, for instance, after Japan announced the purchase of the disputed Senkaku Islands, protests in China......

U.S. vs China

...IDV score is 91, compared to China’s very low score of 20. Americans pride self-accomplishments and self-advancement. China is more concerned with group success and accomplishments. A US HR group operating in China would need to understand that encouraging group collaboration would sway higher performance. Another difference is individualistic cultures prefer to handle business through emails and over the phone; in contrast, collectivistic cultures prefer face-to-face communication. It would be extremely important for HR departments of both cultures to understand each other’s practice to reduce confusion. Power distance is correlated with the distribution of wealth in a country. “The Power Distance Index (PDI) focuses on the degree of equality, or inequality, between people in the country’s society” (Kriss, 2006). The higher the PDI score the more inequality exist between the powerful and less powerful people of the society. The lower the PDI mean that the wealth of the economy is more equally distributed. The US PDI score is 40, and China has a PDI of 80 (Kriss, 2006). This could reflect many things for an HR department. These scores indicate imply that in China, status could exist according to who a person knows. In the US, status is earned. People in China can be promoted according to who they know, versus, a person being promoted in the US according to what they know. Long-term orientation (LTO) indicates “…society’s time perspective and an attitude of perseverance,......

To What Extent Has China and India Effcted J

...To what extent has China and India effected Japan`s economy between the years of 2009 -2014? Mejia Restoration. In ancient Japan the Tokugwa Period, commonly known as the Edo Period occurred between1603-1863. During this time economic and political stability was maintained in the country under the rule of the Shogunate (1). The Shogunate refers to a military style dictatorship, in which the Emperor granted high ranking military commanders the ability to control and wield power over Japan. The Tokugawa era, were considered to be the last of the shogun period in Japan To create social stability in Japan, the Shogun implemented a systematic plan, which separated the four main classes. Namely: The samurai (warriors) at the top, followed by farmers, artisans, and lastly peasants. The Shoguns were considered to be the bureaucrats of the country. In comparison the peasant class accounted for 80 % Japan’s population were restricted to engaging activities that were associated with agricultural and farming. The reason for this is that the Shogun wanted to ensure that those with authority and power were able to generate a stable source of income from their land, while leaving the peasants with little to survive on. The political stability of the Tokugawa period was under threat due to the colonial expansions of countries such as Portugal and Spain into Asia, via catholic missionaries (1). The reason why the Towkugwa Shogun`s feared catholic missionaries, was that they......
