Generalizes on the best strategy to enter the market, e.g., visiting the country; importance of relationships to finding a good partner; use of agents.

The most proven strategy for market entry remains the establishment of a joint-stock venture with a local partner who knows the system.  Many U.S. firms also avail themselves of the services of local distributors and franchisees.  That notwithstanding, U.S. companies have had success opening regional offices without local investment.

For most large-scale investments, a visit to the country and meetings with appropriate public officials are generally necessary but initial meetings usually can be completed in a virtual format.  Reliable partners can be found, and there are several highly qualified consulting services meeting western standards available to U.S. businesses in the country, including the following:
