by Getty Images via DaylifeA beautiful one liner by Jay Boyle at AllroadsleadtoChina I missed last month (see also the video). "Guanxi retires or goes to jail". It is warn clear warning to all those who still see "guanxi" in whatever form as a leading business model in China. A great discussion, although it might be hard to eradicate the model fully in the short run from the collective knowledge of real and so-called China experts.
Doing business in China is a fast changing business, as the closure of thousands of toy factories in Guangdong show. The new policies of the central government seem to make great inroads, going against what most people thought was actually possible.
At the China Speakers Bureau we have great story tellers who can explain you exactly how the way of doing business in China is changing very fast.Mark Schaub
