It is advisable to have an Egyptian representative to explain the major points  .

– Do not be surprised if, at some point, voices are raised; it is not an argument, but just the way Egyptians discuss matters.

Welcome topics of conversation include Egyptian achievements – both ancient and modern, the positive reputation of Egyptian leaders, Egyptian cotton, sports.

– Try to avoid enquiring about the female members of their family. Do not bring up the Israel topic.

Business meetings and meals

– Regarding dress code, visitors are expected to follow Egyptian discretion standards. Despite the country’s hot temperatures, most of the body must remain covered.Wearing Egyptian traditional clothing may be seen as offensive to the natives. If an Egyptian man gazes intensely at a woman, it generally means that her dress is not “modest” enough.

Punctuality in Egypt is not considered the main priority. Your counterpart might arrive late for a meeting, but make sure that you arrive on time yourself.

Business cards should be printed in English on one side and in Arabic on the other.

– Presents are welcome, but do not forget to give or receive them using your right hand or with both hands – never with the left. Small electronic devices, chocolate and compasses are popular gifts.

– For business meals: stringent Muslims will not touch alcohol or pork. Make sure to have a selection of non-alcoholic drinks available if you invite them for an event.

– Do not “wipe out” your plate. It is polite to leave a small portion of food – it means you have had enough.

– Be careful not to add salt to food, especially in an Egyptian home. It is considered an offence.

Body Language

– Do make eye-contact when meeting with your Egyptian business associates, especially with male colleagues. Looking in someone’s eyes is a sign of honesty and trust.

– Arab men usually walk hand in hand although Western-style Egyptians rarely do this. If an Egyptian holds your hand, accept this as a gesture of friendship.

The left hand is considered unclean in Egypt. Unless you are handling something considered dirty, always use the right hand. Avoid gestures with the left hand.

– Pointing is considered extremely rude.

Do not cross your legs when sitting. Moreover, showing the bottom of your foot is considered offensive.
