Paliwoda, S.J. and Luk, P. and Chua, C. (2006) Guanxi in risk taking and uncertain business conditions: a universal practice? an exploratory study. In: Academy of International Business Annual Conference, 2006-06-23 - 2006-06-26, Beijing, China.Full text not available in this repository.
The increasing acceptance of guanxi as a way to reduce uncertainty and risk in business dealings is explored. Guanxi, commonly practiced in China, is a form of social network of personal connections. Moreover, this paper suggests that guanxi has become a universal practice. It is not only a preferred way of doing business in China, but also in markets and conditions where certainty and legal transparency are still in dire need.
