 How to fit in 

 It’s easier to get around in Malipo if you know some basic Mandarin, especially when ordering food, but there are a number of important points of business etiquette to remember too. Confucianism, with its attention to demeanour , harmony, and preservation of “face,” plays a central role .Meetings always begin with a handshake. Give a slight nod and don’t be too vigorous when shaking hands, it could come across as being aggressive. Stay away from physical contact after this, including pats on the arm. If a host is guiding you they may tug your sleeve. Have business cards translated on one side. It is considered fortuitous if they are printed in gold ink. Be sure to place received cards in a case rather than your pocket. Avoid humour since jokes may not come across as you intend. Gift etiquette and negotiations can be complex, so it’s best to read more deeply about them.
