Wednesday 21 October 2020

Electronic meeting at 13:00

Speaker:  Amir Yerushalmi


                  Israel-China Business

                  Jerusalem and Chengdu


Topic:  "Small Company Operations in

              China -- The Do's and Don'ts"


Amir Yerushalmi is an entrepreneur and a China business specialist.
He was born in Jerusalem in 1983. After the army, he left for a gap year traveling in Asia and ended up staying to learn Chinese in Chengdu, the province capital of Sichuan.


During his four-year Chinese language studies at Sichuan University, he set up his first business with no enterprise or management knowledge – a eighborhood bar. The bar grew rapidly, and he opened several more companies over the years -- a restaurant, a retail shop, a nightclub, more bars, an events production company and a consultancy firm. At the peak of his business career he employed over 140 employees.

During 13 years, Amir saw west China turn from a developing economy where a foreign face was still an attraction and every concept was new to an ultra modern territory with a saturated market and high standards in most fields.
Amir’s studies of Chinese language taught him the deep cultural gaps between the Confucian, “post-Communist” Chinese society and western ones, and the last decade at work taught him about local business culture in China.

Amir will be sharing some of his experiences being as a foreign business owner in China, such as the “local” approach to authority, taxes, contracts, partners and more fun night-club stuff like handling police and mafia.

Amir was also a proud Rotarian for two years between 2014-2016 in the renewed
Rotary Club of Chengdu and a Paul Harris Fellow. He will share some of his
experiences from participating in Rotary in a country with strict NGO laws.
