A small survey on profit margins

1 Has the company seen an increased or decreased margin in China? If the specific figure of the company is not available, could the company give a comparison of industry average margin? How do you compare the profitability of China Operation with company as a whole?

2. If the margin is decreased, what drives the margin down in China? Competition from Chinese companies, price pressure from major customers, higher commodity price, rising salaries and wages, etc? Please elaborate.

3. Ways of changing in the lower margin? Shift to higher value-added products, increased economies of scale, cut cost, etc? Please elaborate.

Is there anything else you would like to tell us regarding profit margins in China?

Please give us your reply before December 6th . Thank you for your participation and help!
