HKCBA Breakfast Seminar

  1. 1. BREAKFAST SEMINAR The Chinese Banquet - How to Eat, Drink and Do Good Business Presented by: Peter Loorits, Dragonbridge Corporation China experts agree that the biggest obstacle to success in that market is not the language but rather an understanding of the culture. Business in China is much more relationship oriented than in North America yet North Americans pay relatively less attention to cultural issues than our competitors from other regions.
