  4. 4. France<br />Arriving 10 to 15 minutes after a scheduled time is not considered as late.<br />Distinction between private and business life, and have to respect privacy of others.<br />French bosses generally take a dictatorial and authoritative approach.<br />Always maintain an air of formality and reserve .<br />Never display sign of impatience because French take time for decisions.<br />
  5. 5.
  6. 6. China<br />Being on time is very essential.<br />The order of entering the room is very important as the Chinese are status conscious.<br />It is rare that the Chinese will deal with people they don’t know or trust.<br />Never use negative replies like “no” but instead use ”may be”.<br />Node is not a sign of agreement, it means that the person is simply listening.<br />
  7. 7.
