As Chinese industry consolidation progresses, the impact on foreign players will be both local and global. This trend is an opportunity for inorganic growth, but also a risk, as companies will need to be mindful of stronger domestic competition in China. The webinar will focus on a discussion of several key sectors and industries where consolidation is now taking place, and highlight the resulting M&A opportunities, as well as the commercial and regulatory risks and implications for acquisitive multinationals.
