Chinesische Mauer

Chinese Walls The Chinese Wall is a symbol for the long time successful protection against everything foreign. Traditionally, everything in China was protected by walls: from small things like family homes to large things like the entire country. Even today the government tries to protect China from too strong a foreign influence, whereas the Chinese are often fascinated by modernization and development and the glittering diversity coming along with this progress.


Negotiations and Meals Physical well being and eating is essential for the Chinese. Thus the meal offered to us when visiting a small factory in a rural area was delicious and it did not matter that it was served in enamel bowls and in an empty storeroom. Meals comprise an important sociable component: stagnating negotiations, where both sides left the meeting rather displeased, may well gathered momentum sometime in the course of a dinner.


Chinese Traffic Rules The pictures I usually saw on my way to work in Beijing were those of heavy traffic, people on their way to their place of work by car, bus, motorcycle, bicycle or foot. Sometimes, however, I wanted to see the city wake up, I wanted to see how its inhabitants get ready for the new day. If you go out at the break of dawn, you will meet many Chinese who practice their early morning exercise open-air. Of course open-air ? just imagine the number of gyms and fitness centers required for all those active Chinese? And more often than not they practice in groups: Qi Gong, traditional shadow boxing in various forms, ballroom dance, Chinese dance, gymnastics and aerobics. They practice in parks, on public squares and e.g. on the side of stadium entrances ? on one side of the entrance disco dance music is booming out of a boom box for the aerobic students who know exactly which sequence of steps belongs to which tune, on the opposite side there is another recorder that emits waltz or tango music. And those who did not make it in the morning or have not had enough exercise can join another group with similar goings in the evening after work.

The underlying goal of your business venture is to be successful.  The successful cooperation between business partners requires a fundamental understanding and respect for one another.  Yet, how can you treat your business partner with respect if he or she comes from a completely different culture?  And how can you understand him or her?

How does China operate?

Cooperative work with Chinese business partners is, above all and without a doubt, grounded in relationships ? interpersonal relationships that can be established gradually through respect and growing trust.  Chinaffairs simultaneously advises and helps you to create conditions that can erect successful bridges to China.  

A consultation with Chinaffairs determines how this support would actually look to best suit your company?s demands and opportunities.  Training seminars offer an overview of everyday business life in China and the Chinese social structure.  A customized coaching program and other support activities for a specific project can be offered if needed.  Additional services offered by Chinaffairs include, among other things, support in planning and implementing trips or delegation visits, translation, interpreting for negotiations, and language instruction.
