Doing Business in Macau (with description)

Flag of Macau
Business Attire: Business people are expected to dress smartly. Lightweight suits are recommended for business meetings and outings to restaurants and nightclubs (where most entertaining is done).
Greetings: Greetings in English or Chinese traditions are appropriate. You can shake hands or bow. When bowing to a superior, you should bow more deeply and allow the other party to rise first.

One must always greet the most senior or elderly person in a group first.

Introductions: Calling cards are essential. During introductions, one must use titles and surnames. Chinese surnames come first, followed by one or two personal names, i.e. Tan Sher Leen would be Ms. Tan.
Appointments: Appointments should be made in advance and punctuality is appreciated
Gifts: Spirits are welcomed as gifts in return for hospitality.
