Culture: Option One
Culture: Option One
The Chinese culture is centered on relationship building, whether in the family or business context. One of the widely used practices in China is gift-giving, which plays an important role in building relationships. Chinese businesses give gifts not only to potential and existing clients and business partners but also to government officials as a way of gaining influence and expediting the closure of business deals (Guo et al. 2018, 5). Understanding the Chinese culture and, specifically, the practice of gift-giving is paramount for any businesses that want to establish their operations in China. This paper focuses on the cultural factors that enhance the gift-giving practice among Chinese businesses as well as the ethical considerations involved in this practice.
