china law

Are there any strategies necessary for foreigners in terms of communication with Chinese counterparts?

The presumption is that there are some differences in ways of communication in China and for example the USA, which is more likely to be the case in more remote areas of China. With that in mind a foreign investor can indeed adopt a more effective way of communication with the Chinese counterpart. For example, it is likely that if choosing to confront a problem it may be easier to do so in a less direct way than what would be customary in the USA. The less direct way of approaching matters can also hold true in negotiations, where the Chinese may tend to be relatively less imposing as negotiators.
