Abstract:
Since its economic reforms in 1978, increasing purchasing power in China coupled with growth in private consumption and growing awareness of luxury goods have fuelled the growth of the market for luxury products in the country. It is estimated that by 2015, China would surpass the US and Japan as the largest luxury market in the world. To cash in on such growth potential, Saks, one of the leading high-end luxury department chains from the US is planning to foray into China.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss and debate the impact of economic reforms in China on luxury retailing in the country
