Sinolytics Strategy Building

Securing a strategic position in China’s market is increasingly challenging for international companies: geopolitical tensions and decoupling, China’s drive towards self-sufficiency, “dual circulation” and “common prosperity”. Under new conditions, old recipes for business success do not work anymore. Executives need to adjust their thinking on positioning their company in China’s changing business and policy environment.

Based on deep China knowledge, Sinolytics helps you to pinpoint the political, technological, social and market trends that profoundly impact your China business. Building on experience with clients across industries, Sinolytics supports you to derive the correct implications from these trends and to evaluate the strategic options available to your company. Ultimately, Sinolytics’ Strategy Building provides you with a tried and tested decision-making framework to make the best strategic choices.
