Companies that wish to do business in China must understand the government’s priorities and modify their strategies accordingly. • Aligning with government interest will benefit the business.

GSK was fined $490 million.

  12. 12. TIP: Always offer your adversary a graceful way to bow out of a heated situation NB! You make others loose face by making them look stupid or being forced to back down in front of others.  For this reason, the Chinese will not directly say ”no” to you. Instead, ambivalent answers such as ”Perhaps”, ”I’ll think about it”, or ”We’ll see” usually mean ”NO”. Intercultural Awareness The concept of ”Face” ”Face” is an extremely important concept to understand. Face can be described as a person’s status or self-respect. Saving face is crucial to Chinese people, and causing embarrassment or loss of composure, even unintentionally, can be disastrous for business negotiations.
  13. 13. Intercultural Awareness Business equals pleasure Forming a personal relationship in your business dealings is a crucial aspect of Chinese business culture. Part of this involves in participating in social events, such as evening banquets. Understanding the correct etiquette at such events is important in order to impress your host. Eating ONE person orders, ONE person pays.. The host! Often, the host will try to impress you by ordering plenty of food - sometimes more than 20 courses! The best policy is to lightly sample each dish, and leave some left on your plate once you are finished (to indicate that the host has ordered enough food). Although some Chinese dishes (such as dog, stomach, pig or chicken feet) may seem ”unappetizing” to us, the Chinese people very much identify with their food, and take great offence to signs of disliking from foreigners. Drinking Toasting, usually with beer, is an important part of any Chinese business dinner. The more you drink together, the closer the relationship. The Chinese very much enjoy testing the ability of foreigners to handle their alcohol.
  14. 14. Intercultural Awareness Business equals pleasure Forming a personal relationship in your business dealings is a crucial aspect of Chinese business culture. Part of this involves in participating in social events, such as evening banquets. Understanding the correct etiquette at such events is important in order to impress your host. Seating Wait to be seated, as there is a seating etiquette based on hierarchy in chinese business culture. Generally, the seat in the middle of the table, facing the door, is reserved for the guest of honour. The host sits directly to the left. Everyone else is seated in descending order of status. Venue Generally, the chinese are not great experimenters when it comes to their diet. Better to take your guests to a good Chinese restaurant rather than, for example, the latest French restaurant opening. They’ll appreciate it.
  15. 15. Intercultural Awareness Informal conversation • Do not use terms such as ”Red China”, ”Mainland China” or ”Communist China”. • Avoid mentioning Taiwan. If the subject comes up, never refer to this country as ”the republic of China” or ”Nationalist China”. The most appreciated term is ”Taiwan Province”. • Chinese people enjoy facts and figures. You can expect to be met with questions about statistics/facts about your home country.. – Perhaps a good idea to brush up on this beforehand! • Finally, before your visit, it will be a good idea to prepare yourself by... Studying aspects of Chinese culture, history, art, and geography Learning a few words in Chinese ... your initiative will be noticed and appreciated!
  16. 16. • Trust is low in society but high within family and group. • People are reluctant to do business with strangers. Direct approaches yield little results. • Relationship first, if successful, transaction will follow. • Family or group oriented; Self seldom exists; relationship does. • Prefer implicit, indirect, or high-context communication. • “Face”, harmony and avoiding confrontation is more important than honesty and frankness. • Yes may not mean yes. • Effective communication and problem-solving require frequent face-to-face contacts. • The signing of the contract is the beginning of negotiation. • Lawyers seldom show up during face-to-face negotiations. • A reliance on interpersonal relationship rather than contracts to resolve disagreements. Important to maintain harmony. Relationship-focused Culture

  30. 30. • Only senior members of the negotiating team will speak. Designate the most senior person in your group as your spokesman for the introductory functions. • Business negotiations occur at a slow pace. • Be prepared for the agenda to become a jumping off point for other discussions • Chinese are non-confrontational. They will not overtly say 'no', they will say 'they will think about it' or 'they will see'.
  31. 31. • Chinese negotiations are process oriented. They want to determine if relationships can develop to a stage where both parties are comfortable doing business with the other • Decisions may take a long time, as they require careful review and consideration • Under no circumstances should you lose your temper or you will lose face and irrevocably damage your relationship • Chinese are shrewd negotiators • Your starting price should leave room for negotiation.
