Some useful tips on etiquette in China

On a business trip to China, take plenty of business cards with you, as almost everyone you meet will want to exchange business cards with you.

A bilingual or dual sided business card with Chinese translation is a good idea.

Business card exchange: A business card represents the person to whom you are being introduced, so it is polite to study the card, handle with care and then put it on the table next to you or in a business card case. Business cards are usually presented with care, in both hands.

A note about hierarchy – seniority is important and may be considered in everything from where you sit at dinner to who you first meet within a company.
