As you know building relationships or “Guanxi” with Chinese suppliers is critical to building business success when sourcing products from China.
Recently one of my Readers asked a great question about building relationships or “Guanxi” with Chinese suppliers. He writes:
“I wonder, where is the line drawn in the Asian culture? When does relationship building reach the point of “thats none of your business”. As I focus on developing conversation pieces, i want to be sure not to impede on a cultural aspects. Family, religion, politics, etc??”
I made a short video breaking whether family, religion, and politics are acceptable to talk about according to Chinese cultural norms. And what’s the most surprising non-business related question that Gary keeps getting asked by Chinese suppliers.
PS: I’m considering creating a YouTube channel. Do you want to see me create more YouTube videos? If so, comment below and let me know what you’d like to see covered. Thanks
