Dear Sponsors, Members and Friends,

This is a reminder for the seminar of "The Importance Of Tight Control Mechanisms And Labor Dispute Resolutions When Setting Up A Business In China", on August 10th, 09:30-12:00, at IBCC (Israeli Business and Cultural Center) in 798 Art Zone. Registration is still on!

This professional seminar is co-organized by IsCham together with Dezan Shira and PTL Group, and in partnership with CCBC (Canada China Business Council) Chamber of Commerce.

During the seminar, Mr. Arie Schreier, General Manager of PTL Group China, will talk about the things that can go wrong with your China operations if you do not have tight control mechanisms and the daily issues that can occur when the HQ fails to set the right control mechanisms. This can include choosing the wrong GM, not setting up clear work flows and monitoring systems, choosing the wrong partners, using unprofessional service providers and so on.

Mr. Kyle Freeman, Senior Associate of International Business Advisory at Dezan Shira & Associates, will be discussing common labor issues in China and risk mitigation strategies for labor contracts and staff handbook, social insurance payments, and employee termination.

PTL Group, founded in 2000, focused on setting up and running professional operations like finance, HR, recruitment, marketing, warehousing and logistics for the first decade. Continuous success and a growth in market demand for Chinese business expertise led to a quick expansion of PTL’s service range which now also includes industrial project management, business recovery and equity partnerships.
