Furthermore, Po-Ching Wu, the president of NIU, addressed a few introductory remarks to the audience and fully participated in the 6-hour etiquette lesson.

Ambassador Zhu emphasized that international business etiquette should be "adapted to local conditions," and can plan a way to impress foreign guests. Take the experience of being appointed as Saint Vincent's ambassador to receive the president's visit as an example. At that time, the local orchestra was invited to sing Chinese traditional songs, which created a deep impression for the visit. In addition to the reception methods, the ambassador also suggests thinking about how to deepen the impression of foreign guests in planning the itinerary. The ambassador also suggested that the signing pen at the time of signing can be packaged as a gift, which is of great commemorative significance.
