Although government-purchased vehicles make up just a small part of China’s overall care market, the symbolic gesture shows how difficult it can be to compete in the Chinese marketplace.  Many of you are tasked with understanding your next billion consumers, but conducting research in China has its own distinct challenges.  MREB members, check out our newest country profile, Conducting Market Research in China, to learn more.
