Sourcing in China and other countries in Asia in particular when you have been used to sourcing from Western countries requires knowledge and understanding of the different cultures both beholding on individuals but also within the business environment. Guanxi (or Face) is integral to the Chinese culture (as therefore by historical events also integral to a lot of closely related Asian countries) and can stop a project before it starts if it is not understood and managed (see Useful Links). ASD Sourcing has experience and understanding of Guanxi from the extensive amount of time actually spent in factories in China and other Asian low cost countries so can manage the complex social interaction to ensure projects progress successfully.
