Life in Tier-2 cities in China, what is it like?

Would you agree with these 3 statements?

1. Chinese 2nd tier cities are more developed than many major western cities. They are often overlooked but actually are great to live in.

2. You have to respond to Chinese customers more quickly than in Europe, even if the answer is not 100% complete. You explore the solution together with them. Business is different.

3. Leadership-Duo: Many foreign companies put a Chinese and a foreigner in a similar key positions to combine advantages of both cultures.

Thomas Neubert is vice president of sales at a major German machine tool manufacturer GROB-WERKE GmbH & Co. KG in Dalian. In this episode he shares what he experiences at work, what life is like in a 2nd tier city and how other flexpats and expats can make it in China.
