Those entrepreneurs made great efforts in running business and managing the whole manufacture operation.

They have to watch closely about the mainland policies for factories and tax policies as well because such policies will change according to the market demand.

In addition, they now are facing more challenges when the business is closely related to RMB appreciation, wage increases, rising material and utility costs, as well as higher administrative and compliance costs.

The SME entrepreneurs should make sure that there is a niche market there for the new product or service and analyze the market thoroughly about whether it has or can obtain suitable resources to enter the market. The assessment of profit that new products and services can bring should go ahead before the new meditation of rolling out new or upgraded products or services.
