Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry
Level 2, 150 Collins St, Melbourne, Australia

This workshop – brought to you by the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry – is designed to help you understand the cultural differences in business and enable you to develop successful relationships in China.

As the global marketplace becomes more accessible and your business continues to expand beyond borders, understanding the importance of culture in global business can go a long way in furthering your company’s goals.

With China’s middle-class expected to reach 800 million by 2030, the demand for goods and services will inevitably rise. Understanding cultural differences can provide telling insights and help to facilitate conversations and negotiations. While some confusion can often lead to amusing misunderstandings, it can also make a serious impact on your business relationships.

The aim of the workshop is to enhance your capability to:

  • understand your customers needs and avoid any misunderstandings
  • appreciate how culture can affect your international negotiations
  • negotiate with customers and business partners effectively
  • engage and develop long-term relationships with Chinese businesses effectively
  • go into your meetings informed, confident and ready to do business
