When you are trying to close a business deal with a foreign partner, things can get out of hand because not everyone is interested in learning international business customs when they travel. You would think that in this day and age, that would not matter, but you could not be more wrong. You are not expected to know everything, but the mere effort of doing some research and getting some of the things right can make the difference between failure and success. All countries have their own business customs, so why would Cuba be any different? Cuba is very eager to do business with foreigners, but since the country still is a communist state, there are a lot of protocols you may be required to go through. Even so, people there are educated, and as long as you learn a few basic rules, you should be successful in your endeavors. Take a look at a few things you need to be aware of before thinking of going to Cuba on business. When you have some business meetings on your schedule, you should know that there are a few things that you may find inappropriate. For one thing, you need to schedule your meeting at least one week in advance, but that should not be an issue. You need to make inquiries as to whom you need to meet, but the Cuba Chamber of Commerce may be of excellent help. There you can find out the name of the officials you need to meet. Then, you are required to be on time for every meeting but do not be surprised if your Cuban counterpart is going to be late. It is not a rude practice, but rather standard practice. You can be made to wait up to an hour. Moreover, do not get to business right away. Cuban people value their family more than anything, so a small conversation about their family will set a comfortable and relaxed mood. You do not have to get too personal, but as long as you show some interest in the business person’s family, you will start the meeting on the right foot. One thing that you should probably know is that Cuba has a tight relationship with bureaucracy. You will be required to jump through a lot of hoops before actually having the business meeting. But after that, if all things go well, it should be plain sailing. As for communication, nobody will ask you to speak Spanish fluently. It is considered a sign of respect if you can learn some greeting phrases in Spanish, but having a translator is a common practice. It should not be challenging to communicate with Cuban officials. You will be interrupted while you speak, but you should think nothing of it. It is a common practice, and many Cuban people do it. Do not take it personally as it has nothing to do with you. At the same time, when you are addressing someone, you should always look at them. If you look away, you will be considered rude. You should never use jargon or foul language. While in some countries that is not taken into consideration, Cubans will think that you are poorly educated, and they will reject you. Also, never be profane in your language as that is considered highly offensive. The bottom line is that most Cuban know English, and you will get along just fine. Even so, an interpreter is never too much of an effort and you may need it at some point. Believe it or not, even Cuba has a very warm climate, you cannot wear anything at a business meeting. As a man, short-sleeve shirts are not acceptable. You must always wear long sleeves and casual apparel is to be avoided. Nevertheless, you are forgiven if you are not wearing a tie or a jacket. They are not necessary. As a woman, you can wear dresses or suits, but keep in mind that Cuban men will never refrain themselves from complimenting the shape of a woman’s body. If you feel uncomfortable with that, you should never wear something that is too tight or revealing. When you go to Cuba on business, you should know that most business meetings take place during lunch. As a result, you may spend up to two hours at the table. Dinner is considered way too formal, so business is rarely discussed over dinner. If you see your partners drinking during the meeting, you should not worry about it. It is a common practice. Another such practice is bringing a gift. However, do not go on and spend too much money on it. Bringing a small item from your home country is more than enough. The value should not exceed $20-$30. When you attend a business meeting in Cuba, there are a few things that you should avoid. For example, even if Cuba is a communist country, people still love it, and they are quite patriotic. You should avoid talking about politics. But then again, this is something that you should avoid talking about in any country, not just Cuba. You should also respect Cubans’ belief. 95% of the Cuban population is Roman Catholic. Again, this is a subject that should be just as avoided as politics. Other than that, you should know that blowing your nose in public is frowned upon, and you should never litter. Plus, if you want to take a picture of something or with someone, you should always ask for permission. As you can see, the common Cuban practices when it comes to business are nothing out of the ordinary. As long as you learn a few basic rules, you should do just fine on your business trip. After all, when someone comes to your country to meet you for business purposes, you would like to follow the rules of your environment. It is the same for every country, and Cuba is no different. Hopefully, the tips above are of help.
