One of the major challenges in negotiating cross-culturally is to establish open and constructive discourse and develop relationships based on mutual trust and commitment that value but transcend social and cultural differences. To optimize this process, the negotiating parties in the merger must collaborate and establish an open relationship in which mutual understanding, trust, and learning prevail.
