Restrictions are still in place regarding foreign ownership in the consumer retail sector. Therefore, without an experienced local advisor, the consumer goods sector can be a real challenge. However, for the savvy investor with the right local guidance, opportunities abound.
We have assisted with the market entry for a major European brand of luxury cars and with the multi-million dollar investment by the distributor of a Korean brand car brand. We also provide advice and assistance with the licensing, the showroom licensing structure, importation licensing advice and detailed practical advice on foreign exchange restrictions.
