I’m Just Getting Started. Tips for China?

Hi Sir/Madam My name is Sandeep and I am an entrepreneur. I am new to this business and I have a lot of doubts and fears. I need your help to deal with it. Here are some questions please clarify. How should I verify that the company is genuine and not a scammer. If It is genuine then how can I make sure that it can meet my quality and quantity requirements with its low price quotations. And how can I make legal contracts with it while sitting abroad ?

Your concerns are valid and I am happy to let you know that we have detailed blog posts and video tutorials at CSIC which address each of them in great detail.  Here is a directory for your reference:
