Example assignments by TRU Group have involved engineering, manufacturing, due diligence, laboratory and pilot testwork.. Our western-based consultants have also visited China from North America or Europe as Assignment Leaders. TRU Group have been aware of, and can advise on the the pitfalls of doing business in China, including on the increasingly core issue of technology security.‡
Pivot away from China now before its too late:
For Western Companies Pivoting away from China: TRU Group can compare alternatives to China with the US, Canada, Europe or elsewhere - such as India-ASEAN, Brazil or Mexico - as well as the new Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, or RCEP. TRU Group encourages North American / European companies to move their operations out of China.
Alternatives are particularly attractive for contract manufacturing or fabless business. Also TRU Group is expert in a number of strategic industries such as electronics and 3D printing. We are expert in li-ion batteries, parts and materials. TRU Group is recognized as a leader in strategic materials - rare earths, cobalt, graphite, magnesium, strontium and lithium. Western countries have historically been critically dependent of China for the supply of these strategic materials. Indeed in 2022-2023 TRU Group is engaged in the engineering of several plants in the US, Europe and elsewhere in these segments.

‡ Reality Check 2023 - Protection of Corporate Proprietary Technology in China Technology Supplier "Cooperation"
Year 2022 and beyond brings rapidly escalating challenges for foreign companies as Chinese Government "oversight" of both Chinese and China operations of foreign companies intensifies. Individual Chinese citizens with western connections are now harassed and sanctioned for dealing with foreign companies.This unfortunate reversal of earlier positive liberalization trends in China has taken hold over the last five years and raises new and serious strategic concerns for companies with business relationships in China! Risk has accelerated entering 2023 as China fails to condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine and indeed acts in support of Putin. TRU Group trust in China "cooperation" has all but evaporated! Due to heightened security risks TRU Group has suspended all "cooperation" in China, including specifying Chinese equipment or doing laboratory testwork. TRU Group will no longer support doing business in China. Future TRU Group assignments will focus on pivoting away from China only and will be conducted remotely led by American, Canadian or European Union citizens. TRU Group in 2023 re-assesses China as high-risk - both business and technical - and has therefore re-oriented and refocused its work related to China as this time. It is sound strategy to leave China: Companies that do not, like those now in 2023 stuck in Russia, have a greatly heightened risk of huge losses.
TRU Group encourages all western companies to urgently move their operations out of China and Russia. TRU Group also suggests that manufacturers and consumers STOP buying any Chinese or Russian products.
