Top 10 S. Korean companies operating in China

President Xi Jinping arrived in Seoul on July 3 at the start of his first visit to South Korea since taking office last year.

Upon arrival in Seoul, President Xi said he looks forward to exchanging in-depth views with South Korean President Park Geun-hye and jointly mapping out the future of bilateral cooperation.

China is South Korea’s leading export destination and source of imports – and it is thus South Korea’s largest trading partner. Two-way trade hit $274.2 billion in 2013, a 55-fold increase since 1992 – the year the two countries established diplomatic ties.

South Korea is China’s third biggest trading partner, and its investment in China rose 87.9 percent in the first five months this year.

The following list concerns details about the top 10 South Korean companies that have contributed the most to trade ties between the two countries.

China will become the world’s largest mobile phone market by revenue for the first time byyear end, overtaking the United States, an industry report said. Internet guru Mary Meeker hasidentified the country as the most mobile nation in the world.

As of last year, more than 500 million Chinese were usingmobile devices – primarily smartphones – to connect to theInternet, according to the China Internet NetworkInformation Center. The penetration rate of mobile Internetusers rose to a record 81 percent in 2013.

China beat the US in terms of smartphone shipments in2012.

The growth in mobile devices is driven by the country’srapid shift to fourth-generation telecommunications technologies, analysts said.

Leading players, such as Samsung Electronics Co, Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and LenovoGroup Ltd, have pledged to expand their distribution channels, and a widening productoffering is diversifying demand in China.

American Luxury Real Estate Popular With Chinese Buyers

American Luxury Real Estate Popular With Chinese Buyers

Buying overseas real estate is popular among affluent Chinese for a number of reasons. They may be buying property for a son or daughter studying overseas, as a tangible investment or the first step in a long term goal of emigrating to a new country. The following is a curated list of articles that provide insight into the growing trend of Chinese purchasing real estate for personal and investment reasons overseas.

China’s Super Rich to Rise By 80% in Next Decade

china wealthy

According to a report by Knight Frank LLP, the number of Chinese super-wealthy, those who own more than US$30 million in assets (excluding their main residence), will grow by 80 percent over the next decade , Global Times reports.

China will have over 14,200 ultra-wealthy individuals by 2024, which will rank China 13th in the world in terms of the number of multi-millionaires. This would place Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing as third, fifth, and sixth, respectively, as the cities with the most ultra-wealthy people.

According to Thomas Lam, the head of research and consultancy at Knight Frank, “The Chinese mainland will have a growing presence on the list. And Hong Kong will enjoy the advantage of being the unofficial bridge that connects the Chinese mainland and the rest of the world in the next decade.”

The rise of the super-wealthy in China is also driving up the prices of luxury real estate both in China and abroad. In fact, high-end residences in Beijing increased in price 17 percent in 2013 to reach US$17,100 per square foot after only a 2 percent gain in 2012.

The high-end real estate boom has also carried over into international markets. According to Knight Frank, China’s super-rich contributed 13 percent of the United States’ and 30 percent of Australia’s inbound capital to each country’s property development markets in 2013.

“The economic meltdown in 2008 and 2009 dealt a hard blow to high-end residential and commercial properties in North America and the UK,” said Thomas Lam. “While a buyer needs to pay 70,000 yuan to 80,000 yuan per square meter for prime office space in Beijing, he only has to pay 30,000 yuan to 40,000 for a similar property in the US or Europe. That motivates multi-millionaires to buy abroad.”

So far, the Chinese real estate investments are concentrated in second-tier foreign cities such as Houston, Texas and Birmingham, England. The only thing holding back these investors is a lack of understanding of local property markets and laws, and many of these Chinese investors are looking for foreign partners for assistance in these areas.

Boom Times for Chinese Tourism in Los Angeles Suburb

city-los-angeles-luxury

About 12 miles east of Los Angeles, the suburb of San Gabriel is becoming a popular destination for Chinese tourists.

Although San Gabriel, a city of 40,000, has “no beaches, no major landmarks and few A-list shops and restaurants” to speak of, its perks for Chinese visitors and residents alike are many. According to the Seattle Times, the suburb boasts a “thriving” array of Chinese restaurants, multilingual travel agencies, Asian banks, and Chinese-style hotels. And the list continues to grow. A 316-room Crowne Plaza Hotel is expected to open next to the town’s Hilton in 2015.

One of the town’s more prominent points of interest is 219,000-square-foot San Gabriel Square, which hosts so many luxury retailers that it is now informally known as the Great Mall of China.

“San Gabriel is famous in China. It has become a brand name destination,” said chief executive of Hing Wa Lee Group David Lee. Lee’s business recently opened a jewelry store in San Gabriel to cater to the city’s Chinese tourists, who form about 70 percent of the clientele.

Julie Tang, general manager of the San Gabriel travel agency Park Place International, echoed Lee’s comments, saying that San Gabriel’s “name recognition has become luxury.”

About a third of Chinese travelers in the United States visit Los Angeles, and, according to the U.S. Office of Travel and Tourism Industries, Chinese tourists spend approximately $3,000 on each California trip, more than any other country.

What’s more, emigration to the United States is becoming a popular option for affluent Chinese with concerns about the future of their nation’s economy and environment. In fact, more than 60 percent of millionaires in China are considering emigration, according to the Hurun Report, a publication that documents wealth in the country.

Why E-Commerce Is Growing Faster in China Than Anywhere Else in the World 夏威夷房地产 – 美国夏威夷豪宅

china ecommerce digital

Retailers in China are racing to expand in an e-commerce sector that is growing faster than anywhere else in the world, including the United States.

What’s driving this speedy development? In the late 1980s, China began its transition to a market economy, giving its state-run retailers little time to acquire marketing skills before the Internet began to dominate consumer consciousness a decade later.

“In the U.S., where retailing has long been an established industry for more than 100 years, e-commerce is the icing on the cake. But in China, where retailing as a market is still relatively new, online retailing is the cake,” Export Now CEO Frank Lavin explained in an interview with Internet Retailer. Lavin’s company assists foreign companies in selling their products online in China.

Various analysts have described the competition in the now booming market as “ferociously competitive,” “cutthroat,” and “a street fight,” as e-retailers increasingly resort to price cuts to nab sales, even at the cost of losing profits. And according to Teresa Lam, an e-commerce analyst and vice president at Fung Business Intelligence Centre, it is only expected to intensify.

“Most Chinese online retailers seek to grasp market share by adopting a low-price strategy despite low or even negative profit margins, and this has led to unhealthy market competition,” Lam said. “We expect price wars to continue to break out and amplify in 2014.”

To keep up with the race, companies are making fast delivery a priority, building fulfillment centers so that shoppers can acquire their purchases sooner. They are also offering a wider selection of products, with many “inviting other merchants to sell on their sites so that they can better compete with the giant Taobao and Tmall marketplaces.” Businesses are also rethinking web design, adding attractive new features to their websites and finding new ways to grab consumer attention. A focused marketing plan has also proven profitable for companies like VIP Holdings Ltd., the No. 8 e-retailer on Internet Retailer’s China 500 list.

The Guangzhou-based VIP is a publicly traded online apparel retailer whose success rests on “offering consumers name-brand clothing, focusing on profitability and building a bigger e-commerce base,” according to Donghao Yang, the company’s chief financial officer. VIP has managed its marketing costs more efficiently by using social media to attract new consumers, and has also focused on negotiating more reasonable deals with suppliers.

Although expansion is important, a large part of the company’s success can be attributed to catering to a niche market. Fifty-five percent of VIP’s core demographic — women aged 20 to 40 — live outside of tier-one cities like Beijing, Guangzhou, and Shanghai, in areas where access to the latest fashions is often limited. While other online retailers target urbanites, VIP has made a considerable profit in offering exclusive items to shoppers in smaller cities and rural areas, increasing its brand offerings from 410 in 2010 to over 3,000 in 2013. To increase shipping speed and efficiency for its customers, VIP also plans to spend $200 million over the next three years to build new distribution centers. The company’s order volume continues to grow, having increased by over 10 million orders shipped per quarter since 2010.

All of these measures have proven more than successful for VIP, which reported its first-ever profits last year. The company reported a net income of $12 million on revenue of $383.7 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared with a $1.45 million net loss on sales of $155.94 million a year earlier.

“We have increased our profitability,” Donghao says. “We are better at controlling costs and achieving operating efficiency.”
