Abstract

This session presents a view angle from within China about the human factors that affect management of China's supply chain, from current socioeconomic situations that affect Chinese people's mindset, to the specific issues related to employees, suppliers, customers and government officials. We’ll provide some advice on establishing and dealing with China's supply chain, and how to avoid some of the pitfalls. Comparisons will be made between American business culture and practice with China today.
