Expat sees flexibility behind boom

WHILE many expatriates are still baffled by how Shenzhen created an economic miracle in such a short time, Rainer Ganser from south Germany claimed he had found at least one piece in the puzzle.

“People in Shenzhen are pragmatic and flexible. They can amazingly adapt to new situations regardless of the circumstances,” said Ganser, a manager at an electronics factory in Bao’an District. “In the West where necessary changes have to go a long way through all kinds of regulations and lawmakers, changes might take years to be decided. Not so in Shenzhen. Changes in Shenzhen seem to be easier to achieve. They just do what they think needs to be done. If they can’t go this way, OK, they’ll try another way.”
