A book entitled ‘Managing Cross-Cultural Dynamics for a Shared Future: China-Ethiopia’ was rolled out at the Sky light Hotel. The six-chapter book surveys cross-cultural relationships between China and Ethiopia.
The book is a joint research of the Center for Dialogue, Research and Cooperation and the China Center for International Business Ethics.
According to the survey, the majority of Ethiopians view Chinese people as hardworking reliable and rich but are suspicious of their motives.
In order to mitigate such specious impressions, basic confidence building initiatives are required to foster the positive image of Chinese people.
The book has also raised issues of trade and investment, infrastructure connectivity, policy coordination, shared benefits, responsibility and destiny.
