TREVOSE, Pa., March 26, 2012


China continues to be an attractive destination for organizations looking to expand their operations in a rapidly-growing consumer market. Despite robust economic activities and promising opportunities, the country's sheer size, cultural diversity and complex business environment pose unique challenges for organizations and their mobile workforces.




This webinar - the first in a four-part series investigating the BRIC countries - looks at healthcare and regulatory challenges in China for employees and expatriates, security and safety threats, and travel risks. International SOS experts will disseminate at the difference between healthcare in major cities and rural areas, modes of travel considered safest and key takeaways for preparing your organization for travel to China.




Anyone who manages or is responsible for employees overseas, or writers who cover these sectors - especially in the BRIC countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China - will benefit from this webinar, including those in the areas of medical, security, business continuity, risk management, travel and legal.
