In China, they think it is very interesting how fascinated Americans are with burgers and pizza. An American might wonder how the Chinese can eat so many noodles or squid. I have heard Americans wonder why the Chinese take their shoes off before they go in the house; the Chinese don’t understand how Americans can walk into their home with dirty shoes on. I could go on and on. These are minor cultural differences, and most of us realize that it is just a matter of habits. In business there are many unwritten rules that the Chinese live by. As you will read this book, you will realize they are very specific and must be respected. If you don’t, it can cost you a lot of business. I once made the mistake of leaving a business dinner early and forgot to thank the host. There were many people there, and I was not feeling well, so I slid out without thanking the host. As a result, I lost one of my biggest suppliers, which turned out to be a big shock for my business. So if you want to know about China’s basic norms and business culture, read this book carefully.
CHINA-Understanding the Nuances of Chinese business culture
It is good to remember that all people worldwide, all intents, and purposes, are the same. We all want the same things, and we all do the same things, albeit we may do them a little differently. To do business successfully, one should have a basic sense of the host country’s culture. This book has been written to address these cultural sensitivity issues and make the readers more aware of Chinese business culture.
