According to the director of the Brand Research Center with Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SHJT), of China's 15,000 traditional brands, only 1,500 are still in business. Yet out of these 1,500, only ten are doing quite well at the moment.

Over the course of China's extensive history, traditional Chinese culture and brands naturally have to deal with ups and downs. In order to survive and prosper, these ten brands must not only retain their competitive edge, but also keep up with the times.
