Since the introduction of economic reforms and an open door policy in 1978, China has been proclaimed as "the emerging powerhouse of the twenty-first century." The Chinese market's attractiveness to international marketers has also received significant boost as a result of the country's admission into the World Trade Organization (WTO). Accordingly, advertisers look at China and perceive tremendous opportunity in 1.3 billion Chinese consumers which represents one-fifth of the world population in what is called the world's largest market. Being viewed as a new frontier for consumer good investment does not mean that advertising in China is simple. On the contrary, many Western business firms which have invested their capital into Chinese businesses have suffered setbacks or even failure. Thus, it is important to understand that despite the dramatic impact of economic reform and the drive for modernization over the past two decades, the Chinese market has many special characteristics that make it a challenging place in which to do business including making advertising in this market . This book examines the key barriers/constraints that foreign firms should be mindful of in order to develop a viable advertising strategy in a changing China in which abundant opportunities await those that can fulfill it.

Advertising today is not only under sterner scrutiny by the various federal regulatory and judicial bodies but is also facing an ominous storm of public criticism because of certain abuses. One of the big questions troubling advertisers, agencies and media is whether advertising will be subject to increasingly stringent governmental controls or whether it will forestall such action by mature self-regulation. InAdvertising at the Crossroads the author has attempted to face the issue squarely and realistically, and to point out several constructive measures that advertising must initiate in its self-interest.
