no surprises

February 27th, 2008

Somehow, nothing in this article surprises me, especially this bit:

Asian respondents believed there was a reluctance on the part of New Zealanders who they said seemed unaware of the importance of long term relationships. A perceived lack of interest and minimal market knowledge also left some wondering how serious Kiwis were about doing business in Japan and China.

“I like to co-operate with those who have a real interest in China, have long term and detailed business plans and goals, and come to China to understand and interpret us and our consumers more. I don’t like those who do not have much thoughts put into the Chinese market,” a Chinese respondent said.

Nah, I couldn’t possibly be less surprised.
