This study investigates business ethics (BE) practices in three East-Asian countries (China, Japan, and South Korea) through a questionnaire. Specifically, ethical attitudes of employees working in major native companies in each mentioned country are studied. We find that a number of similarities as well as differences exist regarding BE practices in the three countries, which can be partially attributed to different political, economic, and socio-cultural backgrounds. This study significantly contributes to the existing literature on BE and has practical implications for any agents interested in ethical aspects on business environment in the investigated countries.
