Chinese Business Etiquette tips (Beijing)

Hello Everybody,

I will be visiting Beijing and Shanghai next month for some business meetings. It will be my first time visiting China and first time doing business with Chinese people.

I read some info and watched some videos about the Chinese business etiquette, do's and don'ts during formal meetings etc. As I understand this is very important for the locals and even some small details could easily be a deal breaker.

I wanted to ask if anyone can recommend a useful book or online material that helped you overcome the cultural differences when doing business in China, any information that you found particularly helpful?

Of course, if anyone is willing to share any tips based on their own experience, that would be very much appreciated as well.

Many thanks in advance,

Beijing Forum
