Experiences

“RPC’s consultancy experience” has been built, particularly during a period of more than 25 years, while living and operating predominantly in China.

For the collection of experience this time was of great importance, as it was the period, when China resurrected economically and politically, all in all, during a short and extremely dense, nearly breathless, time span, while the nation managed to catch up with the economic and political powers of the rest of the world.

The approach happened, understandably, with some gnashing of the tools brought into play. Shortcomings could quickly be mended, however, so as to fit eventually into date’s requirements. In addition, as well-known today, gains of the country were enormous. They were invested astutely to close the missing link enabling the country to talk at eye-level with their foreign peers, thus overcoming the affronts suffered and felt during before-last and last century. Yet psychic scarves are still lying open and can be sensed among the present days’ official actions or omissions.

But they are frequently mis-interpreted, as foreigners, for want to understand Chinese psychic issues, are frequently used to imposing their way of thinking onto that of the Chinese side. Alas, this shortcoming has also been frequently observed on the Chinese side as well, while doing business with locals. Yet such shortcomings will be overcome somehow, thanks to inborn flexibility of the Chinese side.

As a result, the period of time between 1994 (first business visit of me to China) and today contributed vastly to come to know the spirit of people, also that of business men, and of Government officials at work in China.
