India is the fastest growing major economy in the world and is expected to be one of the top three economic powers over the next 10-15 years, with a strong democracy and emphasis on partnerships. There’s no doubt as to why it is one of the most attractive places for business purposes.
However, it’s not as easy as simply visiting the country with no prior knowledge of its basics. The ways in which countries approach business, social expectations and methods of communication are all widely unique and can sometimes be tricky to get to grips with, if you’re not particular familiar with that country.
When travelling abroad to a country or place where you’re not entirely clued up with their expectations, whether that is for a holiday or work purposes, you may want to familiarise yourself with their customs. This can help you avoid potential misunderstandings and awkward situations!
From first impressions to physical appearances, business etiquette is taken seriously in India. Accommodating to their expectations shows a good level of modesty and respect.
