(2) What are the biggest difficulties for Poles in relations with Chinese partners? (3) Which aspects are the most significant in building and creating relations with Chinese partners? (4) Which guidelines about cooperation with Chinese partners are useful in practice and allow to succeed? Analysis is based on data collected from the qualitative study.
