DOS and DON´TS in JAKARTA
Take your time and be patient when doing business!
Always be polite and humble.
Never put your business partner under pressure or embarrass them (this leads to loss of face)!
Send a polite reminder of a planned business meeting before it is due to occur, or ask for confirmation of your appointment.
Wear a smart batik shirt instead of a suit and tie! It will keep you cool in the hot climate and shows that you are interested in Indonesian culture.
Don’t plan too many meetings on one day, as there is a lot of traffic.
Don’t make business appointments on holidays, particularly at the end of the fasting period (Idul Fitri).
Never discuss problems directly!
Do not take the relaxed approach that Indonesians have to time personally!
Do not interpret a smile in the wrong way - if you are in doubt, ask politely and carefully. A friendly smile is a standard reaction in Indonesia and it can have many different meanings.
