Some Business Etiquette in China
It’s imperative that the business culture in China is fully understood before attempting to meet Chinese businessmen and women. For example when conducting a meeting with the Chinese it is important to greet the oldest, most senior person before others. During group introductions, it is also important to line up according to seniority with the senior person at the front of the line. The Chinese are also not a fan of being touched by strangers. Do not touch, hug, lock arms, back slap or make any body contact in any formal or informal environment unless they instigate first.
Business cards will normally be exchanged at business meetings. It’s important that your business card is printed in English on one side and Chinese on the other. Make sure the Chinese side uses “simplified” characters and not “traditional” characters. Traditional characters are used more in Taiwan or HK.
The Chinese will normally enter any meeting with the most senior ranking person entering first. They will also assume your delegation will act in a similar manner. Normally it is the role of the senior Chinese person to welcome everyone. The western leader will then introduce his/her team.
Lastly a contract is often considered to be a draft which could be subject to change. In the west whilst we are used to contracts being set in stone the Chinese may agree on a deal and then change their minds. A signed contract is not binding and does not mean negotiations will end.
As you can see from the above it is really imperative that you and your colleagues understand the business etiquette in China and are respectful of the way the Chinese carry out business.
