Key takeaways from the panellists include the imperativeness of preparation and due diligence in the Chinese market, perseverance and consistency with marketing strategy and commodification of services, the value of positive cross-cultural communication practice combined with a strong company vision, incentivising young workers in a fast-paced and competitive environment, and the advantage of playing to one’s strengths within the parameters of a tightly regulated economy.
