When going to the Philippines to do a business negotiation you will have to make several trips over a period of months to accomplish the deal When you are getting ready to meet the key decision-makers it is a good idea to have someone as an intermediary because they can help establish a better relationship with them than what you can You should always be the one first to offer a business card There is also no need to translate the card language the business people in the Philippines say that English only are acceptable When in public you are not to express any emotion They consider that unacceptable when in the public eye A good thing to always remember is that the Philippines have a reputation for violence and they will do anything to regain their honor so dont provoke them they dont care about the consequences of their actions While in the Philippines you must attend all special events that they invite you to since this is an important part of the business deal When going to an event arrive 15 to 20 minutes late because if you arrive early you will seem overanxious then the host will feel like their being rushed If the Filipino invites you to their home you better consider that a huge honor it shows that the person has developed a connection for you which is crucial for business success Never refer to your hosts wife as the hostess in the Philippines hostess means prostitute When you are done eating it is important that you dont leave the plate empty because the host will think that you did not get enough to eat if you leave it with something on it the host will feel like they satisfied you English will be the language of most business transactions so you dont need to learn their language The best time for appointments is in the mid-evenings and mid-afternoons
