IPR Working Group Meeting: Brand Protection Strategies in China

A strong brand is instrumental in winning new customers when entering China’s market.

The manufacturing industry is in flux. Workforce data shows that the types of people working in manufacturing are changing, as are the skills they need. Attracting and retaining talent for the manufacturing industry is more challenging than ever.

However, the future of manufacturing is not a zero-sum game. Although the industry is undergoing a transition, employers can leverage the opportunity to bring together and engage different types of workers with varying skill sets to achieve their business goals.

Considering this, the European Chamber South China Chapter is thus going to have our next meeting for MFG Forum. Join us and learn the insights from the experts on how to attract and keep talent within manufacturing.
