The relational process, referred, can be interpreted in the context of the evolution of the network and structure, based on the relationships established in the network. The quality of these relations promotes or slows the process of action, reflection and change together. In the context of these relationships, the leader is more important than the institution he represents.
The objective of this article is to understand and explain how international entrepreneurs, and mainly the Chinese traders residing in Dakar in Senegal, organize themselves within a network of relationships to deal with the hostility of other traders in Senegal. Its contribution is to highlight the role of networks and social capital in the success of business.
Following this study, several points can be made.
Membership in the Association of Chinese traders in Senegal allows pooling of resources to promote exchanges and mutual support among its members. Exchanging, sharing among them, the Chinese traders can benefit from a support network that border on the obvious principle “that birds of the same feather flock together.” This involves linking members in order to facilitate their expansion abroad. The parity relations between Chinese traders contribute greatly to the success and development of the association. The exchange of experiences between members of the network leads to the accumulation over time of a wealth of information, constantly renewed, and prompting traders to cultivate their spirit of openness to the environment, to position compared to their peers and try to improve.
Our analysis of the role of a network of business relationships in a relatively hostile environment, has given the following conclusions:
–    Chinese traders show an interest in being part of a network of support and solidarity among members;
–    Relationships that are maintained allow access to relevant information via the deliberations that take place;
–    The survival of the association and the relevance of exchanges are based on mutual trust among the members sharing its founding principles.
This study opens perspectives and raises the question of how to connect social networks approach to decision supporting international entrepreneurs in small businesses, given their responsibility of decision-making at both strategic and operational level (Baillette, 2007). It will then be to analyze the contribution of peer exchanges in the different phases of the decision process, and to assess the utility perceived by the entrepreneurs. This will improve on the one hand the knowledge of decision-making of the leaders, discussed in terms of interaction between peers, and secondly to sensitize policymakers about the value of social networks.
