Nice Post piece about Chinese firms' acquisition or JV focused growth strategies:

"...Sarvar had a key asset -- an industrial park run by Flextronics, a Singapore firm that makes products for name brand electronics companies. Hisense had already hired Flextronics to make mobile phones at a plant in Shenzhen, China. Now, it struck a deal to have Flextronics make its televisions.

Sixty percent of the value of the parts and labor used must come from within Europe to qualify for the locally made designation. The rest can come from China, allowing Hisense to capitalize on its low-cost base. Though its European manufacturing costs are three times what they are in China, the lack of import duties makes the equation profitable, the company said."
