China Outlook 2016 finds that China’s inward and outward investment patterns are reflective of the country’s economic restructuring, and are likely to continue being so in 2016 and beyond, with opportunities increasingly found in those sectors and areas whose development will contribute towards China’s transition into a high value-added economy.

 


China’s transition from an investment- and export-led growth model to one driven by consumption and innovation has led to the emergence of a two-track economy. The first track, in basic manufacturing and traditional industries, is experiencing significant headwinds, while the second, in services, advanced manufacturing and consumer markets is exhibiting strong growth potential.

 


The Chinese government introduced a number of major policy initiatives in 2015 to facilitate the country’s economic transformation. These initiatives place importance on the quality of growth in order to achieve a more balanced level of development that is conducive to long-term prosperity. This is expected to continue to be a feature of China’s policies over the next few years, especially following the release of the 13th Five-Year Plan in March 2016, benefitting foreign companies investing in China and Chinese companies investing overseas.

As China’s government continues to face gaps in the quality of and access to healthcare—in addition to the growing burdens of population size, ageing and utilization on the existing system—one strategy will be continued support for the local R&D industry. This report delves into the current status as well as future trends of China pharmaceutical R&D industry, and explains the strategic implications for multinational pharmaceutical companies, who should consider more localized R&D approaches to address new opportunities and challenges.

 



Key Findings:

An accelerating shift in China’s R&D landscape is already leading to increased R&D capabilities of local players, more competition for innovative programs and larger uncertainties for the regulation of clinical studies of overseas compounds. They are collectively challenging MNC pharmas’ traditional, global-centric R&D models and creating a strong impetus for change.

 

 

China's evolving landscape provides an array of alternative collaboration models for MNC pharmas to leverage new and emerging local capabilities. MNC pharmas must select or craft alternative models based on the mix of capabilities they have and need as well as their overall strategies for China.

 

 

Alternate models based on partnerships have the best chance of navigating such a dynamic landscape via increased local leaders’ capabilities on multiple fronts. To make the most out of partnerships, however, decision-makers need to adopt a more balanced investment approach, access targeted capabilities and employ robust governance structures.

The China edition of Deloitte's Global Mobile Consumer survey provides unique insights into how Chinese consumers in different demographics interact with mobile devices. We asked Chinese consumers broad yet specific set of questions such as how likely they are to subscribe to 4G if available in their areas, what feature they would use more if the carrier network is 3 - 5 times faster, how frequent they change their mobile phones, how many apps they download per month, and how mobile advertisement impacts their buying decision.
 

With our observations and insights derived from the survey, we aim at helping operators, device manufactures and organizations in the mobile industry better anticipate the opportunities and challenges associated with engaging Chinese customers through digital mobile devices.

 

This survey is a part of Deloitte research project conducted across the globe in 2014 covering 19 countries. In China, data was gathered from 2,000 Chinese consumers across four distinct demographics and technology behavior groups.

Caged Tiger: The Transformation of the Asian Financial System.

There will be no Asian Century without an Asian financial transformation.

The ‘Asian Century’ is upon us. Asia’s economy already accounts for a quarter of global economic output, up from 17% two decades ago. ANZ expects Asia’s share to rise to 35% in 2030 and to be over half the world economy by 2050. The United States (US) and Europe, which currently account for around half the world’s economic output, could see their share fall to less than a quarter by mid-century. This is a tectonic shift in the global economic landscape.

 

Yet with the exception of Japan and the newly industrialised economies, Asia’s rapid industrialisation of the past two decades has not been matched by an extensive development of its financial system. Many Asian countries have relatively closed and highly regulated financial systems, with a dominant bank sector and heavily managed exchange rates.

Since the beginning of 2014, two hot issues have emerged in China’s private education sector. First, in March this year, Premier Li Keqiang pointed out that “vocational education reforms should keep current with social progress”, emphasizing that “efforts should be made to develop vocational education and professionals that are suited to market needs, to create a merit-based but not diploma-oriented social atmosphere.” This statement opens up a new pathway for vocational education, serving as a beacon for the development of private and vocational schools in China. Second, an investment spree in the on-line education sector beginning the second half of 2013, has continued to make headlines in mainstream media. Internet behemoths are making inroads into this new business area, leading to turbocharged growth of the online education market. But a look at the private education market clearly shows that online education represents only a small proportion. In fact, the market is now growing at a slower pace, in its transition from “enclosure movement” to “intensive cultivation”. In this stage, How China’s private education groups diversify becomes especially vital.

Whenever a Western company loses a business dispute, it usually accepts the ruling of the court and pays up (assuming appeal is no longer possible). Chinese businessmen tend to hold a different view: it ain’t over until it’s over.

                 

When entering into a transaction with a Chinese counterpart, enforcement of the agreement should already be taken into account during negotiations. A (foreign) bank guarantee or escrow is of course a good solution, but this is often a non-starter for the Chinese side.

There are 35 regional cities in China which account for approximately 16 percent of China’s population and 36 percent of China’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The majority of regional cities are located on the east coast, particularly in the economically advanced regions of the Bohai Rim, the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta, and a number of inter-connected ‘city clusters’. The remaining cities are more widely distributed through the country. Each one of these 35 featured cities offers foreign companies particular opportunities, as well as challenges, in a wide range of sectors. These regional cities are considered as the 2nd and 3rd tier cities of China. In general they have a population of more than 5 million people, have a provincial GDP of at least RMB 250 million and the key characteristics are rapid economic growth, lower input costs, large and developing consumer and industrial markets, strong local government support and policy momentum for regional economic development.

As millions of Chinese emerge from poverty they use newly disposable incomes to define themselves through food. If they are to take advantage, brands must first understand why.

 

23 million members of the Chinese population will have money to spend on indulging themselves for the first time this year. By 2020, it’s likely that over 160 million more will be able to do the same.
 
 
New research from TNS proves that the vast majority of these newly disposable incomes will be spent on eating and drinking, enjoying new types and new quantities of food and beverages. For brands and manufacturers in these categories, no greater opportunity exists on earth
