It identifies a number of possible cross-cultural conflicts from two perspectives, i.e. a national and organizational level. Such conflicts that may arise from the merger include communication problems, loss of national identity, a disparity in organizational values and beliefs and difference in strategies such as pricing. Upon occurrence, these conflicts may bear severe implications such as poor project performance, fear of cultural erosion and ultimately, cultural anxiety.
