Does gender make a difference in doing business abroad?

image of Does gender make a difference in doing business abroad?

Despite an increase in the number of women in business, traditional biases and practices that discriminate against women continue to exist in many countries. In some instances, potential local partners or customers are simply not used to dealing with businesswomen in positions of authority. This may be true even if women are well represented in the political hierarchy. In other instances, cultural practices make it difficult for female services exporters to network or acquire informal market information. It is important to note that the treatment of women residents in a particular country does not necessarily indicate how foreign businesswomen will be dealt with.
