Breaking Borders: How Pacific Companies can Tap into the Buying Power of the Chinese Consumer

 In Australia, NewZealand
China, with its huge population and increasing affluence, is a very lucrative market for companies and brands in the Pacific. The Demand Institute, a non-profit think tank that focuses on understanding how consumer demand is evolving around the world, projects that consumers in China will spend $56 trillion over the next decade, with a largely young, affluent, connected consumer base with disposable incomes leading the charge.
