These are the slides for the presentation I did on Google's experience in China for my "Business, Governance and Ethics in Asia" class, part of my MBA at Melbourne Business School.

The talk lasted exactly 10 minutes followed by about 15 minutes of Q & A.

For fun, I was wearing a tuxedo during the presentation as well.

    • 17. Losing Face Western firms should not undertake any communications or policies which would undermine the "face" of the Chinese government. A better approach would be a “partnership” where the two parties attempt true cooperation and discuss their grievances in private.
    • 18. Justice and Relationships The Chinese legal system is not be best avenue to resolve legal disputes. Instead, companies should invest in relationships with Chinese officials (guanxi) to ensure that should any commercial or political friction occur, it can be smoothed over.
    • 19. Censorship Western firms cannot expect their corporate values to the universally applicable. Indeed, some issues may clash with the political or cultural sensitivities of other nations.
    • 20. Innovation Innovation and the introduction of new technology to China will not, alone, create a favourable operating environment for your company. In the short term, the government has other priorities. However, innovation is crucial for future Chinese development and firms should attempt to foster innovation as best they can.
