Gift Giving Around the World

I found an article that offers lots of tips for international business gift giving. Much of what the author writes is applicable to recogniton awards for international employees as well. For example:

Why it’s a bad idea to give a clock in China
Why a pen is meaningful in Japan

The article talks about how to present, what to give and what not to give.

Check it out.

Then, if you are from any of the countries mentioned, let me know if you agree or disagree with the authors suggestions.

All the best,
