It makes particular sense for International companies to sell their Products into China through distributors and resellers.

Are Chinese Distributors your Friends?
Actually, not really as mentioned Forbes. Why? Because distributors are only interested in their profits. They will not work on your branding, your marketing, or your potential opportunities. They will just sell your products and get the money. This is why you should never sign a contract of exclusivity with a distributor. The moment you sign, your brand is their property… for 5 years! Distributors will have no hard feelings doing exactly what they want with your brand to generate sales despite preserving your brand image or DNA.
