Abstract

Since 1978, economic reforms in China allow the establishment of special economic zones (SEZs) and a series of policy to attract foreign direct investment. Since then, the PRC is viewed as an international management site for studying. One of the advantage is that there are a number of “predominantly Chinese” societies (such as PRC, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore,) as well Chinese communities all over the world, researchers studying management in the PRC can make comparisons of political and economic variables in which the impact of culture is controlled (Shenkar, 1994). It means that China presents us with research opportunities for examining the universality of the Western-developed theories and research instruments.
