Summary: In Chinese culture, western stresses on individualism, delegation and empowerment are replaced by an emphasis on community and the family, a lean hands-on management style and a Confucian deference to authority. Through interviews with innovators, entrepreneurs and managers in both China and Hong Kong, this programme asks a number of questions about the effects these cultural differences have on the way business is done in this region. This program describes key elements of modern Chinese entrepreneurship, such as teamwork, harmony, and guanxi--a system of interpersonal relations that stresses covenantal rather than contractual agreements--the differentiate it from the traditional Western model. The strengths and weaknesses of both systems are weighed by the chairman of DHL Internation Ltd. and others, providing a balanced analysis of business in both the Asia-Pacific region and the global marketplace
