Doing Business in China: Emerging Success or Endless Culture Clash?
John Kuhns

John D. Kuhns, an American financier and industrialist, was one of the first Western businessmen active in China after the economic reforms of the late 1970's. Mr. Kuhn's presentation focuses on what it's like to do business in the "real" China, not the China we usually hear about from academics, State Department officials, trade mission representatives, currency experts, and other "talking heads" who concentrate on policy issues in Beijing and Shanghai.

John Kuhns talks about the business and cultural challenges of dealing directly with Chinese bureaucrats, managers, and workers whose methods and aspirations are often at odds with the China we recognize as an emerging economic super power.
