Understand the host's country, values, customs, and believes.  Don't assume that your values are shared.

When you are in a foreign country, you are a guest.  They are the host and they have the power.

You are a foreigner and you will never really understand them.

Multi-National Corporations get their competitive advantage from their ability to transfer their experience across borders and avoid mistakes.

International investment is a long-term investment.  The measures of its return should also be a long-term one.

You will have little success without true respect for the host country and its people.  If you do not respect them, they'll know it.

In international business there is a lot of room for ethical decision making. Act as your own policeman.
