China SME Session: ‘Understanding China’s Business Mind’  - 6 November 2014 - Gent


We have the pleasure to invite you to a seminar focusing on “Ten tips to understand China’s business mind”. This event will take place at 16h00 on Thursday 6 November 2014 at the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce, Lammerstraat 18, 9000 Gent, Belgium.


Over the last thirty years China has risen to become the world’s second largest economy. By the end of the decade it is expected to become the world’s largest. The cultural influences of those driving this economic miracle are largely unfamiliar in the West. It is important to recognise the cultural contexts in which your Chinese partners are making their business choices, and then respond appropriately. During the session, CKGSB Europe will present ten guiding principles that continue to inform China’s business leaders today and will continue to do so in the future.
