Understanding China Culture to Build International Relationships PDF Print E-mail
Partnership among PAAN, ICIA and ICLS leads to China Basics Program offerings

An introductory Chinese culture training class -- Exploring Chinese Social Customs -- was offered to Pioneer employees on May 29 to help employees better appreciate the culture of this influential country. As one participant commented, “I really enjoyed this program and learned a lot about the culture of people that I work with. This was one of the best and most useful training programs I have been to -- it will help me with many interactions with various Chinese cultures.”
