Gift Giving Etiquette

Gifts aren’t always given in business, but will be appreciated if it’s something from one’s home country.

Unless you are encouraged to open a gift in public, expect to do so in private.

Other Etiquette

Avoid hissing, licking the lips, or sticking your tongue out.

Don’t talk with your hands in your pockets, as this is viewed as being a rude thing to do.
