Starting over in China is easier said than done, especially for expats who want to start their own business. But simply doing business in China can already be a challenge and come with a lot of pitfalls. Luckily, we have solutions to all your business-related problems to start your career in China.
There are many things you need to keep in mind when doing business in China. Business negotiations, meetings, and even greeting your business partners come with their own protocol. Did you know, for instance, that you should always greet the most senior person in the room first? When you schedule meetings, try to always avoid important Chinese holidays, like the Chinese New Year and confirm the date way in advance. Gift giving is another aspect that is often underestimated: Certain objects and colors have certain meanings. Those that are associated with death or have another negative meaning should be avoided.
