Import tax load is an important parameter for foreign companies to decide wether to enter a foreign market or not. Often used to protect the national economic sectors, is also has to be seen as an critical parameter in the competition between the BRIC states for new technologies and investors.

Recently China announced (article), that it intends to reduce the import tax level for several high tech products to open the markets for worldwide investors. Named reasons were

  • a reduction of the critical export dependence
  • a massiv support for the domestic demand (chinese households deliver only 35% of the GDP in 2009)

To the contrary, some weeks ago, the Brazilian secretary of trade announced, that it is intended to increase import taxes in Brazil for luxury goods to 35%.

How will the chinese regulatory changes affect the behaviour of the other BRIC states, namely Brazil?

Welcome to Koeninger & Partner Sales Management.

In this section we will provide news about our sales management activities. You will find dates about seminars, teaching opportunities, workshops and other interesting stuff along sales and business development topics.

After some discussions we decided not to install a regularly News section in our websites, rather than giving others (clients, guests, partners, competitors?) the opportunity to participate in our discussions due to a Blog tool.

A lot of todays markets are presently at least stagnating or even shrinking. Therefore, we believe, that sharing information and doing business together – and not against each other – is an appropriate answer and a very important insight of todays business.

We hope, that you will benefit from our contributions. Please feel free to participate.
