The increasing globalization of the Chinese economy is leading to a growing need for modern technologies with the latest advancements.

In recent years, China has displayed immense business potential as it emerges as a manufacturing powerhouse, overtaking the United States in becoming the world’s largest producer of manufactured goods. Leveraging its huge manufacturing engine, China has boosted its living standards by doubling the country’s GDP over the past decade, further displaying impressive growth.
Nonetheless, despite advancements, China is currently facing new challenges as its economic growth is beginning to wane while wages and other cost factors rise. These include the cost of imported materials, which are increasing and are more difficult to control; value chains which are becoming more complex; and consumers, who are becoming more sophisticated and demanding.
This is taking place on the backdrop of a harsh macroeconomic reality where manufacturing growth is slowing more quickly than aggregate economic growth. For example, China is already losing new factory investments to lower cost locations such as Vietnam, sparking concern about China’s manufacturing competitiveness.
Despite variations across manufacturing subsectors, companies—Chinese owned and multinational alike—can’t escape the need to raise their game and move up the value chain by boosting productivity and refining product-development approaches with R&D and new technologies being introduced into production.
The future of the Chinese economy is to build a strong, value-added industry that will be built on Innovation, R&D, and high-end technologies. In the meantime Chinese leaders are demanding an end to the “Made in China” era, suggesting a movement to “Innovated by China”. As such Chinese companies are looking for new cooperation in the technology sphere via joint ventures with leading international players. This is where Compass Ventures steps in. At its core, Compass believes in technology-driven innovation and brings such technologies into China in the form of projects aimed at driving growth.
