But despite the apparent increase in visibility and activity of foreign companies in China, it must be doubted whether the cost of negotiating social difference was reduced to any significant extent. It will become clear below that the frenetic efforts by several of those corporations to localize their ventures by putting in better-trained expatriate staff members were only rarely successful, and the dependence on Chinese middlemen remained high (Bickers 1999: 185; Cochran 2000). Moreover, after the late 1920s the rise to power of the Guomindang (Nationalist Party) made the Chinese government stronger and added impetus to efforts to make foreign economic activity more subservient to Chinese interests.

Western managers in consultation with their Chinese colleagues have instituted smart systems of bonuses, for example, to ensure that their staff members share responsibilities among themselves and cooperate more closely (Munder 2001; Interview HSN, 2001).
