What We Do

We create brands with a social licence.


At China-i we believe that the world has changed. Brands can no longer just be seen to be caring and attentive, they must BE caring and attentive. They must constantly seek the approval of all their stakeholders in order to operate and be successful. We call this the SOCIAL LICENCE. The only Chinese brands that will succeed globally are the ones who obtain and keep their social license.

We do M&A with a big difference.


We believe that for Chinese companies to acquire more efficiently other companies’ assets abroad, they must do so with strategies suited to their unique type of governance that they follow, and the even more unique risks that they face. We rely on our international expertise and international network to ensure that our clients embarking on 走出去 do so in a way that minimizes risks before, during and after the deal and maximize引进来. China-i knows that a deal success is more than just teasers, letters of intent, due diligence and completion. It is about anticipating and managing the very circumstances, risks and complications that are inherent to Chinese companies buying foreign companies. Under one roof, our clients will find their target companies, professional execution, as well as integration services to help smooth out the critical post-deal transition period where most transactions usually falter. We also offer management adjustment, capacity building and media and stakeholder management.

Public opinion expects constant communication.


Foreign and domestic public opinion expects investors to have a good reputation and they also expect to be constantly communicated to and consulted on about all issues pertaining to the companies activities in their country or immediate vicinities.

China-i is unique amongst communication consultancies.


China-i is unique amongst communication consultancies in using the “social license” as the basis of all its branding and communication work.
