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.
