It’s Australia Week in China this week, and I’ve noticed the crucial Chinese concept of guanxi 关系 (‘connections’) described in a few places recently. Most notably in the fabulous new resource from Asialink Business “China: Cultural Awareness Guide” and also in this ABC article “Australians doing business in China: Five questions” today.
A great range of resources, across a range of curricula, from the British Council. 恭喜发财, monkeys 🙂
“Harmony Day 21 March is a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home – from the traditional owners of this land to those who have come from many countries around the world. By participating in Harmony Day activities, we can learn and understand how all Australians from diverse backgrounds equally belong to this nation and enrich it.”
What shall we do? Maybe adapt the clickety-clack. Maybe re-vision the kusudama flower/ball project.
