China is developing at surprising speed in many areas. Jan Booij Advice has many years experience in China. Over time, the office has built good and valuable contacts with Chinese organisations actively dealing with the care of Chinese elderly. A reciprocal relationship has developed, through which organisations can learn from each other.
The contacts are concentrated in the province of Jiangsu around the city Suzhou, one of China’s most developed cities, with about sic million inhabitants, 100 km at west of Shanghai. Through cooperation expertise has been developed in the following:
• Management development
• Care for sufferers of dementia
• Concepts of care and the building of care institutions
• Healing environments
Advice is given on the following essential areas:
• Training on the job
• Innovative exchange of ideas
• The preparation of lectures and presentations
Working with Chinese organisations doesn’t reap immediate success. It requires vision and patience. Mutual trust is a basic requirement and this is only achieved over time. Cementing cooperation and ensuring successful negotiations requires a good understanding of Chinese culture and way of life. The ability and skills required to maintain these contacts from the Netherlands are crucial.
It is essential that all parties involved understand the importance of the future development of the intercultural relationship. Both cultures have their own perspective of how this can be achieved.
Jan Booij Advice will help you achieve successful results in the building of such relationships.
