Doing Businesses in the Chinese Way-V

In 2008, three Filipinos (a 42-year-old male, a 32-year-old female, and 38-year-old female) were convicted of heroin smuggling in separate trials in Xiamen, China. Two of them were scheduled to be put to death in the middle February 2011. Suddenly, the Chinese court postponed the execution, following Vice President Jejomar Binay arrival in Beijing on 18 February to meet with Chinese leaders (Philippine Daily Inquirer 21 February 2011). Some Japanese media reported that the Chinese diplomatic pressure overruled the Chinese judicious verdict because Manila did not attend the Nobel Prize ceremony to honor Liu Xiaobo as requested by China (Sankei Shimbun 21 February 2011). There is receptacle relationship among friends in Chinese society. One might expect to receive cooperation from one’s “friend” if they have helped his/her friend in during an emergency. However, one might not receive cooperation from a “friend” if one has not helped his/her friends in the past. Certainly, this will be this case between China and  the Philippines.
