Etiquette, manners, and cross cultural communication have become critical elements required for international business executives, managers, and employees. As international business continues to expand, the most important element of successful business outcomes lies in the respect for regional, country, and cultural differences.
However, no matter where you do business, always observe punctuality – it is the height of respect for your host in any country and learn to pronounce names, and remember them. Get a native speaker to help you if you're unsure. And when you find yourself lost, a polite smile will get you through any unfamiliar situation.
