BUSINESS CARDS In Japan business cards are extremely important.  Present your card with both hands. When you receive a  business card spend several seconds studying it and do  not write on it or put in your pocket in the presence of the  giver. In many parts of the Middle East, you should never use  your left hand when giving your business card.  Print your business card in English on one side, and in  the language of your host on the other. Learn the protocol of giving business cards.

DOING BUSINESS IN MEXICO First names are reserved for family and closer  acquaintances.  Professional titles are a very important part of  Mexican business protocol. Doctors, professors,  engineers, lawyers, CPAs, and architects are always  addressed by their professional titles. Use professional title followed by a surname, e.g.  "Ingeniero Fernandez“, “Doctora Gonzalez”. Always  use a title when addressing someone, and use the  form “usted”, which means “you”.

Miss = "Señorita = Srita.“ For a lady, use "Señorita“ if you don’t know her  marital status. Mexicans have two surnames that consist of their
