    Anyone from Taiwan, HongKong and China???

    For the past recent months, I had been travelling to these 3 countries setting up new business entity. Wondering if there is anyone from these 3 countries happen to be here?

    Target the Chinese for work or talent?

    I know of a company that hires a lot of very talented flash devs from China. Though, it sounds like the labor laws can make things difficult. For example, it can be difficult and expensive to fire someone if they don't work out.

    For work and talent.
    I know this from a HongKong partner that they are hiring all Flash programmer, Flash designer and developer from China. And the cost is very much lower at Least 50% compare to HongKong and Taiwan.

    Only problem though with dealing with the (mainland) Chinese - and I'm being rather stereotypical due to my past experiences - is that they tend to not see the value of design, SEO and quality developed work, but value quickness, cheapness and a semblance of what others have/may have.

    This comes from dealing with companies in Guangzhou, Dongguan and Foshan City as well as Shenzhen. But the Brit influence in Hong Kong still persists - quality reigns supreme.

    And yeah... we've outsourced in the aforementioned areas too for non-critical work. It was... horrible code for the most part.

    Hi Gerbick, I totally agreed with you! I was once in China for 5 years.
    It it best to target the high end, niche market and only those that believe in Branding.
    I impressed with your courage to deal with them!!!!!

    Hi, I reside in HK at the moment. The general feel is that companies will set up HQ in HK to deal with international clients while most production side of things are in mainland to save labor costs. It's the way it is in almost all industries in HK.

    Good luck
