This spring, movers and shakers of Canadian corporations, government and NGOs will visit UBC and Shanghai to learn best practices for doing business in China.
Working with UBC experts, participants of UBC’s China Links will get a crash course on fundamentals for operating in China, including copyright protection, negotiation styles, navigating government, opening factories and hiring staff.
“As organizations rush to do business with China, it is crucial that they do their homework,” says Prof. Alison Bailey, UBC Institute of Asian Research. “This program, which brings together the latest expertise on Chinese culture, business, law and government, is designed to help them do that.
”The group will convene in Vancouver from April 12-14 for an intense weekend of case studies, role-playing, problem-solving and simulations. After that, participants will travel to Shanghai from May 7-11 to meet with Chinese officials and members of Canada’s business and diplomatic community.
