“China is a high potential market for licensing industry and in a recent survey, 46 per cent licensed owners consider China a priority market to develop licensing business,” Athena Gong, general manager, CBME said.

“More and more license owners are aggressively entering this market and since the launch of CBME China's Licensing Zone in 2012, we have seen considerable interest and growth in this sector,” she too added.
