In order to further increase their market share, they must meet to the needs of Chinese consumers.

In order to further increase their market share, they must meet the needs of Chinese consumers.

I'm more used to the latter, but is it also okay and grammatically correct to use as in the first sentence, meet to the demands/needs?

And do they mean the same?

The second sentence is correct. I have not heard anyone use "meet to" in the context of the first sentence. But I think you need a 'the' in front of 'Chinese consumers'

Meet to could be used like this:

In order to further increase their market share, they must meet (the Chinese community leaders) to (discuss/better understand) the needs of the Chinese consumers.

    Without further context, the article isn't required. In fact, it would be wrong to add the article in certain contexts. (If it's a general statement, the would be out of place.) Without a specific context, the addition of the article looks wrong. Commented Jul 12, 2019 at 13:36
