On the Difference between Staff in a Sino-Western Joint Venture

  •  Qiang Huang    


Being a vast market and with relatively cheap labour cost, China has increasingly attracted foreign investors mainly from western developed countries to establish joint ventures. This has benefited each party concerned. However, some diversities or even conflicts have emerged due to different cultures, ways of thinking, behaviours and words among Chinese and western staff. This paper enumerates some of these diversities and intends to find the cause of them and give those future investors to China some guidelines to avoid those disputes in their business activities.
