Default Will our confidentiality agreement be respected in China

We are sending a prototype to China to manufacturer a part for us in bulk and they will send it back to us.

Will the confidentiality agreement we have be respected in China and what we can we do if they do not keep the specifications confidential?

Yes generally it will be respected, much more than say 15 years ago.

But it is not as strict and not as easy to sue or enforce rights as in the USA.
SO you need to choose a very reputable partner that has been in business for some time, and has many other customers like you.

If you deal with a one time cheaper outfit you may never be able to really enforce your rights there if something bad happens.

My advice is to be VERY careful.
With all due respect, they will steal anything they can there if there are no consequences.
The advice above is good to deal ONLY with firms that have a lot to lose if they violate your agreement and/or the law.
