Doing business with China doesn’t need to mean headache and frustration!
China is and keeps growing, without doubts. And with an economy growing at such fast pace, many opportunities are created alongside and at both ends, driving the hunger for cutting oneself a good chunk off, too. Therefore we cannot stress enough that the most dangerous person you can meet in China is somebody that appears overwhelmingly helpful, smiles at you from their hair-root to the tip of their tows, hugs and holds onto you and even invites you for lucnh or dinner, welcoming you as their friend. - STAY CLEAR !!! Nothing else to add.
With a population of over 1.3 billion, and 80% of it - just living, over 1.3-1.5 million students graduating every year from the universities in one city only (not to mention the thousands more universities throughout China) and a society that is so competitive that bones are almost replaced by fear of failing (literally speaking), you needn’t possess special imaginative senses to figure out how many people will turn over-industrious in trying to make a quit.
It’s no secret neither that you may well be approached by English speaking beggars nowadays. Chinese are renown for being ultra-fast learners and with hundreds of thousands of foreigners visiting China every month, you’d been studied already, inside-out and thus, you will hear many phrases and speeches around you, very well know to you. It will certainly help to make you feel very comfortable, almost like home. Don’t get too relaxed. Stay alert and know, if comething sounds too good and nice, it most likely is!
