English term or phrase: approach the network
My study of Chinese and Russian entrepreneurs
reveals distinct differences in the nature of their networks and suggests how best to approach them. (...) There are no hard-and-fast rules for approaching these networks, but Westerners can expect the Chinese ones to be
harder to crack at fi rst – perhaps more demanding in their entrance requirements than the bigger, more fluid Russian
networks.

English translation:finding a way to initiate doing business with this sector
Explanation:

To approach a global business sector successfully, there are local customs, and methods of doing business, that require specific knowledge and expertise to gain entry.

I have cited Chinese business culture articles as examples; Russian information is as readily obtained as well.
