FEATURES OF CHINESE BUSINESS COMMUNICATION:

10 USEFUL TIPS FOR ENTREPRENEURS

China is a country which businessmen are pleased to visit in order to conclude a profitable contract. But it is not always possible to implement it because Russians and Chinese are significantly different in mentality and character peculiarities. For the deal to take place and to be advantageous for the Russian party, it is necessary to know some nuances of managing business negotiations.

COMMUNICATION FEATURES

Talking about business is not about the Chinese. They are sure to be interested in marital status and hobbies. It is typical of them. They try to make friends with the interlocutor, watching him/her and collecting information on the business at the same time.


Oftentimes, negotiations take place in restaurants if the Chinese partner appoints a meeting. It is impossible to refuse dinner, the Chinese can perceive it as an insult.


The negotiation process itself will resemble a cunning game with derogations, bypass manoeuvres and concessions. The Chinese are patient, so the interlocutor must be patient too to make the deal.


During a business conversation, the partner will record your words and then try to catch it on the inconsistencies, so it is necessary to tell the truth and specific figures to keep up.

10 USEFUL TIPS FOR NEGOTIATING WITH CHINESE PARTNERS

  • Early submission of the offer (at least 2 weeks before the personal meeting). This should be done to reduce the time that the Chinese partner spends on considering the business offer. Traditionally, making a decision can last long until the partner studies the question thoroughly.

  • To convince a potential partner that cooperation is beneficial, it is necessary to refer to the help of the competent interpreter with a narrow specialization concerning the subject of conversation – the product which is required to be purchased.

  • It is not necessary to hide rich things at a meeting or to dress in cheap clothes, but it is better to stick to maximally business style and not to put on pretentious ornaments. The neckline and mini skirts are not suitable for women in the course of business communication.

  • If the Russian himself/herself appoints a place of negotiations, he/she should take it seriously. The alternative to the restaurant can be a specially designed room in the hotel.

  • The Chinese will let the interlocutor first enter the premises. Before you take advantage of this, you should first offer the same to him/her.

    5
  • Negotiations should be carefully prepared to make you look confident. You will have to provide the most detailed explanations and technical details. Bargaining is possible and necessary.

SEARCHING A BUSINESS PARTNER

Finding a partner is not as easy as it seems at first glance. The first method is the recommendation of acquaintances. The search costs nothing, but there is a risk of being scammed. Another way is to contact companies that have been doing this for many years. This way is more expensive, but it can give a positive result not only in terms of search but also in other aspects. In such organizations, there are interpreters, consultants and people who know everything about China and its people.
