- China is a guanxi-oriented nation. Compared to the Western relational marketing concept, Guanxi incorporates the notion of ganqing and renqing. Based on its unique cultural and institutional backgrounds, Chinese guanxi is a mixture of the affect and instrumentality. This article posits and examines a measurement scale for measuring guanxi quality based on Chinese guanxi constructs-renqing, ganqing, xinren, and western relational structure- satisfaction, commitment. The results develop a multi-dimensional measure in this study, offering a useful starting point in order for business practitioners to assess their guanxi and at the same time provide academics with a scale for operationalizing the measurement of guanxi quality.
