Perspectives on Doing Business in China

By Mads Jensen Møller

Monday, April 25, 2016 - 16:00 to 17:30

Doing business in China is different from doing business in Europe. To comprehend the Chinese political agenda and to operate well in a Chinese cultural context is just as important as to have a strong product and a clear strategy. Based upon own experiences in China, the speaker will examine the perspectives on doing business in China – How to balance a Western linear way of thinking with a Chinese process orientated approach where everything always is open for interpretation and change. The lecture will include comments and reflections on Chinas newly released 13th Five Year Plan from 2016 to 2020.
