Abstract

This exploratory study focuses on identifying the key cultural and other contextual influences that affect the process and outcome of commercial negotiations between Pakistanis and Non-Pakistanis. A survey of negotiators was conducted asking for information, based on their experience, about the business negotiation process involving Pakistanis and Non-Pakistanis. Utilizing the studies of Hofstede, and Salacuse, the responses of Pakistani and Non-Pakistani negotiators are analyzed and cultural traits displayed by Pakistani negotiators in international business negotiations are identified.
