. To fully understand another culture you need to immerse yourself in it, eg live/work in it, marry into it, etc.. In response to the question "where should I start my career", the answer according to Natalie Cope counters with "Do you want a job or a future"? If you want a job, stay in your native country; if you want a future, go overseas to regions like Asia!!!!

"...there is no substitute for in-country experience. The knowledge, learning and skills to be gained are invaluable. In-country experiences will lead to an appreciation of local business, political, ethical and regulatory environments. It helps build cultural sensitivity and understanding, and it will allow you to foster rich and meaningful relationships. Having local knowledge and long-term relationships based on trust and mutual understanding will be paramount to commercial success......many of the perceived challenges of doing business with Asia are real. The countries, cultures and markets of Asia are vastly......different ......trade and legal barriers, along with moral and ethical quandaries. No one will ever be able to prevent all mistakes and misfortune..."
