Inviting the Suppliers to Join the Conversation
This chapter offers exclusive material from global suppliers with headquarters in China, giving their views on the moralisation of global markets. The analysis is based on empirical material in the form of field notes from observed, international business meetings, along with personal accounts from CEOs and managers of international firms with their head offices in China. The chapter explores whether there is any need and room for resistance in this international business setting, and what possible outcomes this might have.
