Ethical Insights: Working Across Cultures -- Business and Ethics in China

This topic explains how American companies can operate ethically in Asia and how Asian companies coming to the US can operate consistently with American expectations of ethics and fair play. It is important and relevant to say that there is a growing interest in Asia, in general and in reference to China, due to two key factors: (1) the increasing expectations of Western companies that Asians must be able to operate in a manner ethically consistent with practices in their home country. (2) The desire of Asian companies to deploy capital abroad by forming joint ventures with Western companies. This article will discuss the challenges, and demonstrate that doing business in Asia can be very challenging as the ethical expectations in western business environment may not be the same as in Asia.
