A recent publication project entitled Asian Business Discourse(s) (Bargiela-Chiappini, 2005, 2006; Bargiela-Chiappini and Gotti, 2005) has brought to the attention of the international readership an original body of research on business discursive practices and organizational communication issues in a variety of Asian cultures. In this Forum, we discuss some of the topics highlighted by the project, which arise from the recent indigenous research in business discourse as a multidisciplinary field.
