The global impact of changes in the Chinese business landscape is based on geo-political and socio-cultural trends. With the continuing growth and importance of the Chinese economy in mind, we must bridge the differences in cultural and regulatory business practices in order to do business with China.

At a time when Chinese companies are increasing their foreign direct investment in Europe, your organisation needs to be able to make decisions about strategic opportunities to compete or collaborate with Chinese businesses. Get a bird's eye view of Chinese dynamism and Sino-EU cultural dexterity that you can use immediately.
This two-day programme will give you critical insights on macro trends and emerging opportunities, and show you the scope of the cross-cultural competencies that you will need for more productive interactions inside and oustide of China.
After completing the programme, you will be able to:
