My business cards have my full name in English and the name by which I am known in China in Chinese characters. As I am only ever called Andy in China that is all I put, having given name and surname in Chinese would be 5 characters and too complicated. My Chinese driving licence only has the name Andy on it, no family name and the local police seem to be happy with that.

In all do not over complicate matters, keep it simple.

Always eat the Chicken Feet........

The hosts of my first meeting were either testing me or had a weird sense of humour. They of course ordered all the food and it is expected that everyone eats some of each dish. I learned afterwards that I had eaten parts of a pig and a cow that I would definetly not have chosen. I also drank far more white wine than I should have which probably helped. It's remarkable at such dinners how, regardless of how much you drink, your glass never seems to empty.

oh, i meant different methods work on different conditions. even though generally speaking it is good to be polite and formal, being casual might be helpfu in showing your own character and edge. that is my guessiing.
