Visit the exhibition in China. Information about the biggest events you can find on the websites www.chinaexhibition.com , www.china.org.cn. At the thematic exhibition you can not only see samples of products and to catalogs, but to personally meet with company representatives to discuss the preliminary conditions of cooperation.
Find a mediator in China, which will help to establish cooperation. It should be remembered that not every Chinese manufacturer has the right to export the products: it is necessary to obtain a license. That's why most factories are not only available online, but do not have specialists who speak English. In this case, the trusted intermediary is the only opportunity to establish cooperation with manufacturers, the price level of products which is much lower.
Contact the Chamber of Commerce, the divisions of which are available in most major Russian cities. This organization will help you to establish effective cooperation with Chinese manufacturers and get some reassurance.
Try to check the found provider. Assemble the maximum information in the public domain. Unfortunately, cases of unfair cooperation are not uncommon.
