Digital Event: Fostering Successful Relationships with Japanese Businesses
Conducting business in a foreign country presents many unique challenges, especially when it comes to intercultural communication. Words and actions that are fully acceptable, or even expected, in some cultures might have negative effects in other cultures. This is particularly true when it comes to dealing with people from tradition-rich countries such as Japan, where a great deal of emphasis is placed on tradition.
With the Princely Mission to Japan ahead and opportunities opening up in the land of the rising sun, join us for a speedy learning opportunity together with AWEX, hub.brussels, FIT, FEVIA & Wagralim, and the BJA.
This event is now fully booked.
