3 Specifications Another concern related to specifications is the issue of colors, because colors are interpreted differently throughout the world. The color green represents parks and recreation in the United States, but it is associated with disease in countries with dense green jungles. Green is a favorite color in Saudi Arabia, but it is a forbidden color in parts of Indonesia. In Japan, green is used in the high-tech industry, but you do not see it used in the high-tech industry in the United States (the United States uses putty, black, and silver).

However, if personal inquiries are considered rude in the local culture in a business setting then asking these types of questions is considered rude. In most of the world, business attire advertises someone’s rank within an organization. Business attire could be a suit, but it also can be other forms of native dress that are considered to be business attire for a particular country. Examples include batik shirts in Indonesia (shirts with patterns created by hand drawn wax symbols), Mao Zedong clothing in China, Nehru jackets or vests in India (no collar with a small opening at the neck), and embroidered shirts in Mexico.

In developing countries, if a facility is too technically advanced, local personnel will not be able to operate the facility once foreign E&C personnel have left the country. Having technology transfer requirements on projects encourages native workers to learn how to operate facilities, but if the institutional memory is neglected, facilities are shut down temporarily or are abandoned because subsequent generations no longer know how to operate them. Engineers might be required to provide elaborate designs in situations where a simple design would suffice because clients might assume that they are being cheated if a design is too simple (this occurs when clients have unlimited funds and they want the best that money can buy, such as is the case in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates).
