starting a business in China

For anyone who just loves "businessy stuff" I found a nifty article called "10 Steps to Starting a Business in China" on www.inc.com - and it gives a very thorough tour of the many steps we have taken to open our Ice Cream Shop here in Urumqi, Xinjiang China! We can attest to each of those steps - as it took us well over 16 months to get our Shop up-and-running as a Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise (WFOE)! The whole process has been an adventure to learn, but we hope it was a smart investment!!
