The ‘Great Firewall of China’ and restrictions on the type of technologies and content that foreign companies can host within China often cause a major barrier to foreign tech firms looking to serve customers in China. This workshop will provide practical advice on navigating these barriers, whether you are selling Apps, Games, SaaS solutions or simply looking to improve user experience for your non-China hosted website.
With more than 700Mn internet users, and a similar number of mobile users, China is by far the single largest mobile digital market. China became the largest global App market in 2016, and Apple’s Appstore now has more downloads in China than any other application. However, the ‘Great Firewall of China’ and restrictions on the type of technologies and content that foreign companies can host within China often cause a major barrier to foreign tech firms looking to serve customers in China.
