Giving gifts to business associates is an old age practice having its origin in empirical China, where visiting dignitaries were often expected to give tribute to the emperor and his noblemen. Although modern Chinese businessmen specially when working with overseas partners do not expect any gift, however a well thought gift would go a long way in establishing your relationship with your supplier.
Should I bring a gift? How much to spend?
