Forums > Living in Kunming > Kunming FRAUD
You MAY want to contact LONGDRAGON (posted on THIS forum) for fee-based physical due diligence. He's operated a representative office in Yunnan for over a decade.
Even if the company is a "big name" entity - there are many frauds misrepresenting themselves, fake offices, etc.
On that note - there are also many "big name" entities with dismal looking but legitimate satellite offices.
If you're serious about the business, invest some nominal funds into a preliminary (physical) due diligence report.
If you want to go big - then contact the larger multinational accounting firms and they can expensively verify due diligence - although their records for ethics and morals has been quite dubious of late.

If you REALLY want to drink urine as therapy - try a warm bottle of Corona beer. Smells like pee, looks like pee, and I'd venture - tastes like pee, when warm, with a modest beer flavor. Two birds with one stone.

Thanks for the link. Interesting general perspectives, apparently based on data provided by the China Development Research Foundation (CDRF), which is a government sponsored non-profit organization.
PWC provides an interesting statistical perspective as both an international accounting firm and as a global consultancy with a decidedly international if not global perspective.
I recall KPMG similarly published an excellent general perspective and summary of the 12th Five Year Plan, several (five?) years ago.
Nice, professional, and polished looking report.
NOTE: PWC adds a disclaimer on the limitations of its statistical analyses:
"...we can only assess the cities based on statistics, but from our past experience, we know that even cities with relatively low final rankings can be exceptionally attractive..."
Free reports are used to brand, advertise, imply expertise, and provide potential leads for paid focused research, so of course, the report is optimistic in tone.

Lisey. If you're IN the Kunming Hotel - you can TRY to ask the concierge o help. Look for any big business building - there's ALWAYS at least one mom and pop printer shop (usually several) within walking distance.
MOST printer shops, including mom and pop shops, have color LASER printers (so you don't have to settle for wet/damp color ink jet copies). Dongfang Lu is nearby the hotel (the major police station which handles visas is there, along with most of the major bank main branches), so there'll be a cornucopia of mom n pop printers in and around the alleyways and side streets.
