China has the second largest economy in the world and is attracting more and more interest in establishing partnerships with businesses from other countries. However, it has always been a challenge for non-Chinese organisations to manage successful relationships with Chinese partners.
In this lecture Professor Weili Teng will share her understanding of trust from a Chinese perspective and draw on her experiences to outline ways to develop relationships with Chinese organisations, especially within the Chinese higher education sector. She will discuss the concept of expectation that is closely related to the development of a trust relationship.
This lecture is intended to be of interest to scholars and practitioners interested in both understanding and in building partnerships with Chinese organisations.
