Executive Summary

From the Paper:

"Success in conducting business in China, particularly in the city of Beijing, is hinged on the company's grasp of the essential aspects of the city's business culture. 'First contact' with the city's business culture would come from the company's representative, usually an expatriate ('expat') delegated to establish initial business undertakings with principal contacts and core groups essential to the formation of a solid foundation of the business in the city. The role of the expat is indeed critical to the success or failure of the company's business endeavor in a culturally-laden country such as China. It is through the expat-representative that Chinese business affiliates will be able to gauge the acceptability of the company--particularly its people--to the business culture and landscape of Beijing (specifically) and the country in general."
