A handshake is often the first type of communication you have in business, regardless of the culture. Even in culture where other types of greetings are common, such as bowing or kissing on the cheek, a handshake is still the universal way to greet a business contact.
When you shake hands with someone, make sure you have a firm handshake. Your handshake should not be too strong, as to overpower the person, but should also not be too weak. You can practice your handshake with a friend.
