China is the world's largest market with more than 1,369 million potential consumers (25% live in cities). Regarding the GDP, is the second largest Economy (ahead of countries like Japan, Canada, and Brazil). According to the WB is expected that by 2020, China will be the first economic power in the World, representing nearly 40% of the world production.

China produces more than half of the world's cameras, 30% of air conditioners and televisions, 25% of washing machines, 20% of refrigerators and 70% of toys. “Galanz” produces 40% of microwave ovens sold in Europe. The Brand “Haeir” is recognized worldwide.

In China, there are cultural and sociological issues extremely different: influence of Confucianism, customs and habits, ancient culture or language difficulty.

Personal relationships (“Guanxi” in Chinese), will be decisive, since under Confucian ethic, the Chinese negotiator will want to guarantee that we are honorable, and therefore we will keep our commitments. If we fail to develop the “Guanxi” it is hard to do business in China. This means that negotiations can be made very slow and therefore expensive.

Therefore, we will analyze the case of Chinese firms (Haier, Galanz, Huawei, Cosco, Lenovo, SAIC, Founder, Chinalco, Sinochem), to better understand the organizational Culture of the Chinese companies and the influence of Confucian values on the management of these corporations.

China-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (FTA)

We will study the largest economic regions of China:

  1. Beijing, as China's political, cultural, and international exchange centre; it is a dynamic city with a broad range of industries. High tech and modern manufacturing sector have become the leading forces of the industrial growth of Beijing
  2. Since 1992, Shanghai has sustained a double-digit GDP growth rate. The city has seen fast growth in its modern service industries. The pillar industries in Shanghai refer to electronic and information technology products manufacturing, auto making, petrochemical and fine chemical processing, fine steel products manufacturing, complete equipment production, and biomedicine. Shanghai is the largest port on Chinese mainland and one of the largest entrepots in the World
  3. Guangzhou has become one of the wealthiest Chinese cities. Its proximity to Hong Kong has allowed its development and the Guangdong region. Guangzhou has such three pillar industries as Automotive, petrochemical, and electronic information manufacturing. Shenzhen is a link between the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong and a transport hub in coastal Southern China
  4. The Greater Pearl River Delta region comprises Hong Kong, nine municipalities of the Guangdong Province in the Mainland China and Macau. Many multi-national companies already enjoy the benefits of this multi-jurisdiction, cost-efficient business model and have established there. Companies can source or manufacture competitively in China and use Hong Kong as logistical, financial, legal, design and marketing services to export their products to the world
  5. Hong Kong has a prime location at the geographical and Economic centre of Asia. Business Executives in Hong Kong have fast and easy access to all the largest markets in the Asia-Pacific region. This central position is one of the key reasons for the city's popularity as a location for regional operations
