Business trips abroad are never easy. You are going to face a different culture that has different customs and etiquette, which is why some proper research is required before leaving. The same goes for Vietnam. The Vietnamese business people expect you to behave a certain way, just as you would if they came to you. It is only natural to respect each other’s cultures and traditions, and not doing so may lead to failure. As a result, if you plan on going on a business trip, you should probably learn a few aspects of their etiquette. There is nothing out of the ordinary, and you will make a very good impression if you express your interest in the Vietnamese culture. First of all, all the meeting with a Vietnamese delegation should be schedules weeks in advance, even if you are not already in Vietnam. Plus, you need the time to hire an interpreter since English is not well spoken, especially by senior associates. You can make an agenda if you would like to, but it will not always be respected since Vietnamese people will go from one topic to the other as they like. It is not a sign or rudeness. It is just how they do things there. When you first meet the Vietnamese delegation, giving out your business card is more of a ritual than a habit. When you hand out your business card, you need to do so using both hands. Also, make sure that it does not cross someone’s head, say someone that is sitting down. Plus, to show your dedication and respect, you need to translate your card and put the Vietnamese version on the back. As mentioned before, Vietnamese business people do not speak English well enough for meetings. At the same time, when you are given a business card, do not look at it superficially and then put it in your pocket or on the table. You need to receive it with both hands, take a good look at it, and then place it wherever you want with care. You need to show the people present that you respect the card, even if you think that it is not such big of a deal. Dress etiquette is nothing out of the ordinary in Vietnam. Men must wear suits on all formal meetings, although when the weather is too warm, you can lose the jacket. Women must dress conservatively as well. Suits and dresses are acceptable, but decency should always be out first. Nothing too tight or short is acceptable. The dress code in the Vietnamese business world differs from one region to the other. For example, Southern Vietnam is far more relaxed than the Northern part of the country. In Vietnam, gift giving in quite common, but you should always wait until the end of the meeting or before you leave your host’s house. However, you do not need to go overboard with your gift. A small item with your company’s logo on it is more than enough. When you are invited to a meal with the Vietnamese delegation, you must wait for the senior associates to be seated first. When you are invited to someone’s house for a meal, you need to wait for the host to sit down first. Also, you need to stand until the host tells you where to be seated. As for the business mentality in Vietnam, you must not expect much. When an issue arises, the Vietnam people are a ‘whatever works’ kind of people. They are not pretentious, and as long as everyone gets up from the table satisfied, every solution is a good one. At the same time, you should know that the Vietnamese people worship Confucius and his philosophy. With that in mind, they value the relationship they establish with you before engaging in business. That is why some Vietnamese people will first try to get to know you before closing a deal. The first meeting will be scheduled for that purpose alone. This is a tricky step because Vietnamese people are usually very private. They do, however, want to know more about you on both personal and business levels. One thing that you must always remember is that Vietnamese business people are all in for saving face. If you criticize someone, all you can expect is silence because they want to save face at all times. Their reputation is very important, so you should try as much as you can to keep all criticism or complaints private. If you do have something to say, you should always take someone aside and express your concerns. It is a more controlled environment, and your chances of getting what you want are higher. Another thing that you should expect is for the negotiations to last a while. In Vietnam, people want to get the best possible deal, not that it would be any different anywhere else. However, the Vietnamese will do almost anything to get what they want. One of their strategies is to prolong the discussion for a very long time hoping that you will somehow yield. If you do not, they will not be offended. They just want to try before closing a deal. In Vietnam, business people prefer to make cash transactions rather than credit. Only people that have a long history of successful collaborations will be able to use credit. When it comes to this, you would best prepare cash if you have never transacted with these people. Things should never get to court because the process takes a very long time and it is costly. Plus, as a foreigner, you already are in a disadvantage in front of the courts in Vietnam. As long as you keep in mind that Vietnam has a whole different culture than your own, your business trip should be successful. The tips above should help you to at least get started, and if you still have doubts, you should refer to someone that is working in Vietnam. There are, some would say, unwritten law for Vietnamese.
