Based on the creation myth, the consumption of tea has been practiced in China since 5000 years ago and thus the inception of tea had been accredited to China. Subsequently, the consumption and cultivation of tea spreaded within the region to Japan, Southeast Asia and South Asia through the ancient trade route and importation from the mainland China. It was only in the 16th century that tea had been introduced to the public in Europe through letters and journals written by the Portuguese who had obtained the trading rights with China and established a trading port in Macau. In 1610, the Dutch East India Company commenced the shipment of tea to Europe. This exotic good from the Orient then enticed the European community and gradually gained popularity among the elites.
Analysis of the Illustration of “Aladdin” by Walter Crane Saleha Chohan One of the famous and widely known stories mentioned in the Arabian Nights is “Aladdin and the Magic Lamp”. Though the Arabian Nights was set in the Arab world, Aladdin was not set to be living in Arabia. Despite its exotic nature that triggers a thought for its Arab-ness, the story takes place in China and so Aladdin is Chinese in reality. Aladdin has been drawn in many picture books over the course of history however, Walter Crane, a British artist is the first to draw it in colors. It is worth noting and analyzing how Crane majestically depicts Aladdin in wood cravings, which merge Chinese features and Japanese essence, relating to Orientalism, Aesthetic Movement and a blend of japonaiserie and chinoiserie.
In the eyes of the Chinese people, any relationship between businesses is ultimately built upon relationships between individuals. The emphasis of the Chinese on interpersonal relationships and Ren Zhi (i.e., rule by people) is logically correlated with Confucius’s disregard of legal systems. The high expectations of the Chinese regarding reciprocity in business interactions grows out of Confucius’ well-known admonition: “Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you.” The Chinese use the term guanxi to refer to trust-based, reciprocal personal relationships. In traditional Chinese families, family members, whether immediate or extended, are mutually obligated to help one another. As society evolves, the concept of “family” is gradually extended to people who share a commonality of identities, for example, schoolmates, fellow villagers, and old friends.
China is a country in East Asia, and its culture is still considered the oldest still performed culture in the world. The name China comes from the Sanskrit way of saying it which was Cina which translated to Cin by Persians and the name seemed to have become known through the route along the Silk Road that came from China to the rest of the world. The Romans and Greeks knew China as Seres because that means "the land where silk comes from". The name China did not appear in print around west until around1516 CE in Barbosa's journals when he was narrating his travels in the east. In Ancient China the main job for peasants was as a farmer.
First of all, the protection of intellectual property is weak in china, for that reason, many foreign brands were operated as company-owned stores or joint-ventures instead of franchises in the early stage. Besides, the Intellectual property laws are not implemented uniformly in china. Then, lack of strong management skills is another significant challenge. In addition, finding, evaluating and signing a qualified firm as local franchisees is difficulty for franchisors. Furthermore, the regulatory environment for franchising has evolved and improved in china, for instance, the ITA Franchising Top Markets Report (2016) pointed out that in December 2004, MOFCOM (Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China) issued new rules concerned the supply of franchising services in China which required that “a franchiser own and operate at least two units in China for one year before being eligible to operate franchises in China.” Finally, some franchisors have difficulty to adapt to local business environment and satisfy local customers’ need in a short time.
In response to the rise of demand for the practice, a night school was set up for certification to practice Chinese Medicine in 1917. A few years later, Chinese practitioners from Guangzhou built another school in 1924. As the Chinese Medicine practice remained part of Hong Kong’s flow of good health, it also tangibly strengthened. Though Hong Kong underwent British Sovereignty in 1841, the exportation and importation of medical goods continued; it was agreed that the British Government would not interfere with the traditions of the Hong Kong locals, including the Chinese Medicine practice. In the early 20th century, whilst frequenting in medical and natural resource trade (plus its advantageous geographical location), Hong Kong
This policy was called the Great Leap Forward. The Great Leap Forward was an economic campaign run by the communist party of the People’s Republic of China and was aimed to span from 1958 to 1962. It was brought into place to evolve China from being based in the farming sector, to the industry sector. Although this strategy was not passed, China did consider the advantages and benefits of this idea and integrated them into their economic system which is still in place today. This was called the Open-Door
Tsang S. (2007) discussed that the whole Hong Kong became a colony of Britain in 1989 after the several negotiations between China and Britain. Britain wanted Hong Kong to be its colony owing to its proximity to China, where the British could make great profit. Hong Kong can be a ported to support the expansion of British trades and profit in China in order to support its imperial expansion. Corroll (2007) summarised that a consensus of hanging over the sovereignty from Britain to China was made in the 60s. And it took place on 1st July 1997, when Hong Kong was no longer a colony and China claimed that Hong Kong was home.
When the Dutch Civil Servants first came to Ceylon they brought with them a few favourite movable articles of furniture including the Sea Chest to furnish their quarters. Western domestic artistry penetrated Ceylon during the Portuguese period. The word ‘Almirah’ is the Portuguese name for the English wardrobe but elegant furniture designs were introduced by the Dutch. The foreign craftsmen from Holland who were brought here instructed our local craftsmen and they in turn turned out various household furniture in keeping with the designs that existed in the houses in Holland. It is a well established fact that the Dutch Governor Van Rhee employed
