Living, Working & Doing Business in China


Living, Working & Doing Business in China is the most accurate, comprehensive and up-to-date book available about daily life in China, and essential reading for newcomers. China remains a mystery to many Westerners, although its emergence as a major power makes it increasingly attractive, particularly to adventurers, would-be entrepreneurs, and employees of businesses and organisations trading with China. Adjusting to a different environment and culture and making a home in any foreign country can be a traumatic and stressful experience – and this is certainly true of China. This book is guaranteed to hasten your introduction to Chinese life, irrespective of whether you're planning to stay for a few months or indefinitely. Adjusting to day-to day-life in China just got a whole lot simpler!

            Living, Working & Doing Business in China is packed with comprehensive, up-to-date, accurate information, facts and figures, and 'insider’ tips, all written and presented in the easy to read and understand style for which Survival Books are famous. Our books will save you weeks or months of research, answer hundreds of questions – including many you hadn’t even thought of – and help you avoid problems and save money!

China can be an awfully difficult country in which to do business, work, and live.

Foreign companies are regularly discriminated against. Enforcement of contracts and the law is problematic. Corruption is rife. Disrespect for intellectual property is legion. Politics can be capricious. Everything is based on relationships. But trust is a fragile commodity. And foreigners can be treated as aliens.

But China is inescapable. It is becoming the world's biggest market. It is modernising and improving. Its wonderful civilisation is beguiling and seductive. And as Chinese investors, traders, migrants, students and tourists fan out across the globe, we are all being influenced by the Chinese way. We are becoming "sinicized".

In this context, everyone needs an excellent guide. And there is none better than Leo Lacey's "Living, Working & Doing Business in China".
