Have you ever thought of how globalization hasn't just moved nations nearer together, but also how it has generated a single moral perception for nations conducting business together? Management teams are discovering that there are great moral challenges waiting to be found out by the enhanced progress to a global scale. If ethics are an issue inside a country, visualize the difficulties that crop up when the quantity of people involved grows up to an international scale, cultures are different, as well as the language is alien. In this report we are going to thrash out two articles which deal with the moral perceptions of China and India, how these articles add to understanding international ethics, and how China’s and India’s business ethics contrast to that of the United States.

In 2007, China dealt with a key setback with the surge of product recalls. Rothlin discussed how China must improve their advertising, product security, and China’s measures taken on such issues as being a most important moral problem for China.
