Doing Business in Mexico: A Guide for Navigating Cultural Difference

July 21, 2011 § Leave a comment

Here is a great article on a few key communication problems that U.S. and Mexican business partners encounter and tips on how to avoid them. For instance, “in mainstream U.S. culture, accountability is simply assumed, and a request for information is assumed to require a quick response.

The article linked to explains what you need to know to triumph in these cross-cultural business communications.
