A Scot in China of Today
About Ron Dow

Hi I am Ron Dow from Grangemouth Scotland, I run and own an import export business specialising in China

Before falling into this business I have been in the multiple retail trade where I was the youngest manger the company had aged 17 years after being with the company since I was 13 years of age as a par time shelf stacker.

I then moved on and started my own small bed and breakfast operation in 1988 and property letting then in to the licence trade where I was for many years.

I went to Hong Kong on holiday and met my now friend Mathew Leung as he was asked to show us around Hong Kong when we were there by my Chinese friend here in Scotland

Now I spend up to 6 months a year in China mainland on business, we specialise in sourcing product for companies in the United Kingdom, our new project for 2011 is to import wine and whisky into china as this is the fastest growing market in the world for this type of product, we have opened offices in Guangzhou a city with around 18 million people in southern China.

Our aim is to help small to medium size companies enter china via our company Guangzhou Import And Export Company. Or if any company want to source a product from china we will also assist then to do this using our wide knowledge of how things work in this fantastic country.

We have been in china now for 12 years and I am still learning it is so difficult to do business there and nothing is as easy as they make it sound. They will sell you and make you anything but I still find the quality or their understanding is still far different from the west but again we are dealing with a culture which is over 3000 years old and have to take this into account. Because when you say to them this is not the way it is done in the west they just tell you (BUT THIS IS CHINA)

We welcome any enquire from any country either for import or exports we want to help small companies get into china at a level to which they can have a toe hold with people that are doing it now

You can visit our website and if you feel there is anything we can do for you please drop us a email or call us direct and ask for Ron
