Joint Ventures 

Including strategic alliances, partnerships and collaborations 
KPMG advises its clients on joint ventures, strategic alliances and partnerships at all stages from creation through to exit – and is the only Big Four firm with a dedicated joint ventures practice. Our hands-on experience of what can happen later in the life cycle helps our clients capture opportunities, avoid pitfalls and tackle existing problems - or sound the alarm before they arise.

For many foreign companies in China, times are getting tougher

In the last three years, China has contributed more than any other country to the growth of consumption.  But for many of our clients, times are getting tougher due to higher costs and slower growth.  We summarise the impacts of some of the key trends.


High Growth Markets

At KPMG, our Joint Ventures Practice works very closely with the High Growth Markets team to bring the best of our experience to bear on clients’ endeavours to enter markets such as Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. By combining our local practices’ knowledge of developments on the ground and specific regulatory and political issues with our own experience of the practicalities of overcoming cultural barriers and avoiding common pitfalls, we can quickly get to the critical issues.
