Meetup: Crucial tips for doing business in China as a “Westerner”

June 29 @ 16:30 - 20:00

Two German born Chinese sharing tips on how to maximize your business experience in China. Are you planning to work in China or with Chinese very soon? Come and learn about the cultural differences between China and Germany that are crucial for doing business in China as a “Westener”.

The Chinese economy experienced astonishing growth in the last few decades that catapulted the country to become the world’s largest economy by PPP (GDP) in 2018. Due to China’s fast-growing market and its billion-plus potential customers, many western companies are chasing the “China dream”. Yet, despite the massive market and potential growth opportunities, many foreign companies still fail. Often, the reason behind the failure is not the product or the service itself, but the lack of cultural awareness. If western companies continue to ignore the Chinese culture and adapting their businesses to local consumer behaviors and needs, they will continue to fail.
Get deep insights of Chinese cultural nuances which are essential to successfully establish your business in the Chinese market.
