Registering a company in China can be a draconian process, not to mention some of the business activities might be restricted with a license. Nevertheless, as a foreign company about to enter into the Chinese market, registering a business there as a business consultancy firm allows you to access a vast majority of business activities without needing to acquire a license beforehand.
Typically, a wholly foreign-owned enterprise in China gives you direct control over your business.
