From the tropical South to the sub-arctic North, China covers over 3.7 million square miles and has a current population of 1.3 billion. Despite a history ranging between Civil War, mass starvation and reigns of terror, the country today is thriving and prosperous. It produces exportable quantities of rice, tea, beer, cotton, tobacco and soya – and agriculture is but one of its successful economies. This is a country that gave birth to Taoism and Confucianism. It is a country that produced the Great Wall, and one which steadily attracts an abundance of tourists interested in its fascinating and yet accessible culture. Its language is one of 40,000 original characters, condensed in every-day language to a mere 3000… A powerful financial capital of the world, China has long been regarded as a popular business destination. With Hong Kong being one of China’s major "gateways to business," the book details the currently booming success of this vibrant trade destination, accurately depicting the relationship between Hong Kong and China, as "one country with two systems." From insightful anecdotes as to life as it is currently lived by the Chinese, to advice about the eccentric customs linked to gift-giving in China, Dennis provides the business traveller with all the necessary advice to ensure a successful and well-prepared business trip to this country.
Bernard Dennis is a seasoned traveller and a member of the London-based Institute of Export.
