From The Horses's Mouth

I was giving an individual lesson to one of my students today, a guy in his early 30's who has his own small business selling various specialty petrochemicals.

The topic was cultural differences and business; the speaking activity was, "What advice would you give to someone from Britain or America who wanted to do business in your country?"

He considered this and offered the following:

1) Don't trust words

2) Give gifts to the people you are doing business with

3) Be ready to break the law

That about sums it up!
