China is one of the biggest manufacturing countries in the world and plays an important role in world trade, but finding a reliable and high quality supplier at a low price can be problematic for small to medium-sized businesses with no local Chinese network.
High travel costs and language differences can make it difficult for businesses to audit their suppliers themselves, and how much can online directories and website information truly be trusted? How can suppliers and the products they claim to sell be accurately verified?
