China, Dubai, Colombia, South Africa, the Philippines
We opened new offices in China (Guangzhou, Chengdu, Taipei and Beijing). In Shanghai, we established a sourcing company to help non-Chinese clients find the right partners in China.
In Dubai, we opened an office to build a relationship network in the Middle East and to offer free-zone trading companies from Dubai.
Opening Bogota ensured we had a presence in all key Latin American markets. With the economy of Colombia booming, foreign direct investments are growing and need proper structuring.
In South Africa, we established an office in Pretoria to provide back office accounting in Dutch, Afrikaans and German within the European time zone, but at a much lower cost than Europe.
We established an office in South Africa and opened an office in Moscow, achieving our goal of having a physical presence in all BRICS economies. A new office in Madrid complemented the Barcelona office and gave our Latin American investors’ greater choice.
We acquired facilities in Davao, the Philippines, enabling us to offer scanning and accounting services from a very inexpensive location in a practical time zone.
