Jakarta is a modern city with a strong financial and economic sector. However, there are still a few cultural things to keep in mind when coming here for work.
- In Indonesia, developing a rapport is crucial to conducting business successfully. Exchanging small gifts, like delicacies, candy or coffee is common practice.
- Bring a good supply of business cards to further develop relationships.
- Your professionalism should be manifested in how you dress. For men, that means a dark-colored suit and tie, and for women, also a suit or a knee-length dress.
