Un tempo era MSN Messanger, che divenne Skype e oggi è WeChat.
Ma senza WeChat in Cina, vivere è più difficile. Anche per le aziende.
Ecco perché un’azienda, operativa in Cina, dovrebbe avere un account ufficiale con WeChat

Se vi state chiedendo: “WeChat? non ho la più pallida idea di cosa stiate parlando”, avete una pallida idea della Cina. 

Se vi state chiedendo perché dobbiate creare un profilo ufficiale per la vostra azienda e per i vostri collaboratori su WeChat, conoscete un po’ meglio sulla Cina, un po’ meno il marketing in Cina.

Under the PRC Anti-Unfair Competition Law (Article 10), one of prerequisites for the protection of certain technical or business information as a trade secret is whether the owner has taken security measures to maintain its secrecy. In practice, many enterprises may use non-compete agreements signed with employees as a security measure to protect their trade secrets. Such agreements, however, are usually pure competition restriction agreements, which only provide that the employee may not work for competitors or run competing businesses for himself within a certain period after termination or expiration of the employment. In a trade secret infringement case (Shanghai Industrial Co., Ltd. v. Huang Ziyu and Shanghai Safeiya Textile Co., Ltd.) retried by the Supreme People’s Court(“the Supreme Court”), the Supreme Court determines that "pure non-competition agreements” does not constitute a security measure on the grounds that such agreement does not explicitly embody the employer’s intent to keep secret and the scope of the information to be protected as trade secret.

It is a well-known truth that e-commerce is the strongest trend revolutionizing how business gets done all over the world, especially when talking about China. As of December 2014 China had a population of 1.4 billion people out of which 190 million of them were part of the online shopping community. By 2020, China’s total online retail is expected to reach 10 trillion (RMB), accounting for 16% of total sales, and China’s e-commerce (including online B2B transactions) will reach 30 trillion (RMB).

Bigger and better smartphones with improved functionalities, along with app development, QR codes and mobile payment features have all contributed to shorten shopping procedures and improved mobile shopping convenience. Up until last year, e-commerce was a no-go to foreign enterprises but a new policy is changing the rules of the game.
