Comparing Western and Asian Business Cultures

Postby Fantasia » Mon, 06 Dec 2004 12:36 am

Hi there!

I'm a newbie here, but I'm hoping some of you might be able to help me! :D

Basically, I've got to prepare a presentation for a job interview next week, and I need some ideas!

First, I've got to compare Western and Asian Business Cultures; and also identify the key factors of sucess for western businesses who want to trade in Asia Pacific.

I have got quite a few ideas so far, but would be interested in hearing some of your thoughts and experiences. THANKS!! :wink:

How about deconstructing the myth of such a thing as an "Asian Business Culture"? Free brownie points to somebody who comes up with a Key Factor for Success that applies to Kabul, Bangkok, Singapore and Tokyo, but not Los Angeles, Reykjavik and Moscow.
