Happy new year, A2 business students!

Mr Jones's curator insight, February 4, 2014 6:57 AM

Most obvious nest move for fast growing ASOS. Will the social media approach that has worked elsewhere in the world be as effective in driving Chinese sales?

In China, Starbucks doesn’t sell coffee to make its millions. It rents couches | China | Scoop.it
The conventional wisdom for foreign food retailers entering China is to cater to local taste. But at Starbucks, the push to make China its second biggest market centers more on local demand for space.

-▶  AMERICA'S GREATEST EXPORT - JUNK FOOD
Just like America, processed food consumption is having its effects on China’s population. Twelve percent of China’s adult population—114 million people—have diabetes, causing complications such as cardiovascular and kidney disease, as well as strokes, that experts say amount to a “major epidemic.”

American presidents may talk about exporting democracy, but we've had far better luck getting other nations to adopt our fast food-eating ways. In China alone, McDonald’s now has more than 1,600 restaurants, and Bloomberg reported last year that the fast-food chain generates around 22 percent of its revenue from franchises in the Asia Pacific region, the Middle East, and Africa... http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/09/27/china-will-soon-rule-world-processed-food-consumption

Explaination of Tesco's decision to sell its Chinese business into a new joint venture with CRE. Left with a 20% stake and had to invest £300m+ into the JV; but at least it limits Tesco's losses in China.

Mr Jones's curator insight, January 29, 2014 6:43 AM

Why has it taken Tesco 10 year to refine its strategy? What advantages do they hope for from the new approach? Who paid who in the creation of this new joint venture?

 

tutor2u's insight:

A nice short summary here of Tesco's decision to sell its Chinese business into a new joint venture with CRE. Left with a 20% stake and had to invest £300m+ into the JV; but at least it limits Tesco's losses in China and enables it to focus attention back here in the UK.
