A: We have been operating in China since 1986, long before the economic miracle took place and at a time when China was just starting to open up to the rest of the world. With more than three decades of experience working in China, we have seen changes in leadership, enforcement of policies and its impacts on the economy. We have also witnessed first hand monumental and defining moments from the “Open Door Policy”. In this time Hong Kong returned to the mainland, China entered the WTO and there was the Beijing Olympics. We also worked through the global financial crisis all the way to the current day PRC having achieved the impossible by becoming the world’s 2nd largest economy.
In more than three decades, TAK’s founders have been actively involved in the day to day work dealing with Chinese State Owned Enterprises, government entities and companies of various sizes. We have built extensive and long term relationships with customers, suppliers, local governments and SOEs alike. Our experience has spanned various industries and jurisdictions throughout China. CNPC and China Banknote for instance, having first established a working relationship with TAK in the early 90s, remain our customers to this day.
