That’s a good point you just made, and it may be interesting to look into it!
Because, according to Lewis model, North African and Middle Eastern think and act in a Multi-Active framework; while Chinese are Reactive.
However, Wersterners are Linear-Active which is pretty much in complete adversity with the two others.
My hypothesis is that, it should be easier for Arab companies to do business with Chinese.
But I will keep this in mind and check what I can find.
