S3 Newsletter #1/2018

March 2018

Dear Friend,


After a very busy start of the year, we’re back with an SNewsletter packed with a wide variety of news items.
We will report on the Seminar that was co-organized with Fomento de Trabajo and Centro Metalúrgico about business opportunities in China, as the main communications topic of the last quarter.
Tradition over the last few years has shown us that a sizeable portion of the Newsletter will be dedicated to sourcing operations, with plenty of new orders that have recently been manufactured, inspected and shipped.
But also a ton of news is ready for you about new initiatives in management education with a couple of innovative agreements with several business schools and universities.
Finally, as far as the attractiveness of the Chinese market is concerned, we will focus on the growing interest on behalf of the country’s consumers in green products and services, following a trend that is already well consolidated in the West.
Wishing you all a fun time reading this Newsletter, we look forward to receiving your feedback!
Kind regards from Barcelona,

Tom Van der Heyden
Co-Founder and CEO – SGroup


Seminar on 'Business Opportunities in China' at Fomento de Trabajo

Last 22nd of February 2018, a seminar was organized at the premises of the Catalan business association Fomento de Trabajo about business opportunities in China, jointly coordinated with the association and its partners of Centro Metalúrgico.

Sourcing: new customers, orders, projects and quality inspections


Lots of novelties in the sourcing section, especially a variety of new productions, inspections and deliveries of important orders.


More teaching activity: UB, ESIC, EAE, OBS, etc.

Lots of news in terms of management teaching initiatives at universities and business schools, including a Masterclass on 'Global Sourcing' at the University of Barcelona.


China's green shoppers


Over the last few years, available income in China has been rising dramatically and with it, people’s consciousness about problems related to pollution and food safety.


New intern in Barcelona


We will report on a new Colombian intern at our Barcelona office.
China erects the world's first purpose-built e-sports stadium

The universe dedicated to e-sports is closely linked to online and video gaming.  Some major developments have taken place in the industry, but never before has there been a place specifically focused on this activity.

Something entirely different... 

We finish this quarter's Newsletter with a most interesting news item comparing China's main cities and regions' economies with the economies of entire countries.

Wanna read again the Newsletter we sent out three months ago?

Thought about that news item we published and that you wanted to share with a colleague?
Can't remember that picture you saw and wanted to show to your friend?
Or... simply can't get enough of it and want to read again what we published some time ago?
We know the feeling: just click on the image next to this text and... off you go!
