Can you imagine what would happen if you didn’t make sure that your Chinese commercial partner accepted the terms and conditions of a contract? Many Chinese are non-confrontational, so they will not overtly say “no”; they will say “we will think about it” or “we will see”. Moreover, in Chinese negotiations, promises are fluid and the terms of your contracts may still be considered negotiable after an agreement has been reached.
Let’s say for example that you want to buy new machinery for your company from Germany: have you considered the importance of knowing all the technical characteristics and functions of it in order to choose the one that best suits your needs?
Bearing this in mind, it goes without saying that having good communication in legal and technical negotiations is crucial for the success of your business.
