The issue of staff management in overseas-funded enterprises is a serious challenge faced by every manager. Because of different personnel management system, different organizational system and different supervision system, lots of troubles have emerged in these enterprises. In view of this, a sound overseas-funded enterprise should build up an effective system to promote healthy development, such as language training, foreign knowledge acquisition, and the establishment of enterprise culture. This paper is aimed at stimulating the development of the overseas-funded enterprise in China by developing some strategies for overcoming the cross-cultural barriers in such enterprises.


Key words: Overseas-funded enterprise, cross-cultural barriers, management strategies.
