Doing Business in Asia: One Size Does Not Fit All

Professor Jane Lu Inaugural Lecture

Professor Jane Lu is the James Riady Chair in Asian Business and Economics and Director of the Centre for Asian Business and Economics in the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Melbourne.

With a focus on understanding the diversity in culture, society, economic and political systems, Jane will examine historical precedents, chart the development of business and analyse the variability in business environments across Asia. The lecture will scrutinise corruption, counterfeiting, institutional lag, and the lack of transparency within different countries and will offer viable strategies for understanding and doing business in the many and varied Asian nations.
