China has been maintaining steady growth in the last thirty years despite the fact that management has not been sufficient to support business continuity in China. However, many risks have begun to affect business operations in China, especially in the last five years. This growing phenomenon calls for more research on risk management in Chinese businesses as well as business environment studies in China.

Authors are invited to submit research focusing on organisational resiliency through risk assessment, contingency planning, systems security, crisis and disaster management and recovery planning, as well as public policy regarding infrastructure and security in China. Decision making using a multidisciplinary approach is highly desired. The goal is to prepare a reference issue for managing business risk in China.
