A difference in the family culture of Asians and Americans can be cited here as an example. Consumption issues can be explained here. Language barriers and low number of people speaking English can impact the operations and execution capabilities. The language barrier can be difficult to go over in the beginning for few months and this can impact the launch of the business as desired.
Example can be cited here of the Chinese businesses who value trust based business dealings more compared to the Americans who like to include everything on paper and are more inclined to bind themselves through legal obligations. Americans may prefer a detailed agreement considering all possibilities while the host country may not be very intricately inclined to involve all possible factors.
Autocratic leadership style which involves all employees is more prominent in Asian countries and Americans prefer more of an authoritative leadership style. Most of the leadership style is being adopted from America since it was the first in defining such concepts. Many Asian countries still have a ownership run companies who are also in the management and employed full time, which is not the case mostly in the US which has the management as employees and owners usually do not have much role to play in the daily conduct and decision making process.
Example can be cited about the political uncertainty in countries like India, Vietnam, and Korea which has had significant impact on the business conduct. The governance standard may be more bureaucratic in the host country compared to the USA which may impact the cost of doing business.
