This paper attempts to increase the reader's knowledge of the influences present when negotiating in China. The current environment of Sino-Western joint venture (JV) negotiations is examined, and negotiating suggestions resulting from this examination are presented. The paper, the result of the author's research in China in 1987-1989, posits that the major influences on Sino-Western JV negotiations are the ideological and theoretical foundations for such JVs, their history, the problems they experience, and the political, economic, governmental, and cultural contexts of negotiations. The paper's importance lies in two areas: it contributes to the literature on the international transfer of capital and technology, and it provides valuable information to Western firms and individuals who consider entering into JV negotiations in China.
