In this Q&A video, Amelie (FashionEx Shanghai) and I answer two interesting questions:

  • How much does it COST to run a Tmall or JD store?
  • Given the high operating costs, the difficulty in hiring/retaining talent, the very competitive landscape and the increasing unfair advantage of local companies (access to funding, guanxi, sectors protection, etc.), do you think China is still the land of opportunities for foreign entrepreneurs in 2019? Are you considering expanding into SE Asia?
