Pivotal to her success is the understanding that connectivity is the key to building relationships, and it is this that will ultimately determine your success in business culture. Connecting with China aims to facilitate a smooth path for all those at the brink of working with China, or who are already involved but need further guidance. Understanding the forces that shape Chinese strategic thinking will only partially assist you in progressing up the very formal hierarchy which the Chinese use to codify relationships and signal degrees of trust and the will to cooperate.
