Culture's Influence and Business Management
The Case of China and Canada

From the Paper:

"In an era of global economic development, with people and industries moving across national boundaries frequently, the need for business management to address the concerns of culture's impact on the economic environment are greater than ever. Culture's impacts on the political economy are felt everywhere. Recent examples include everything from Muslim protests in the Middle East (including sanctions against international businesses) over editorial cartoons published in Denmark, to political rhetoric (again coupled with sanctions) between the U.S. and North Korea over the development of nuclear weapons. On a smaller scale, business managers of multinational corporations must deal with their colleagues, competitors, and customers on a daily basis with everything from internet contact and telecommunication conferences to international travel for face-to-face meetings. It is critical that these economic agents understand their own culture and the culture of the countries they deal with, in order to effectively manage and influence people, build relationships, and grow economies."
