Happy for Egyptian Business Etiquette Suggestions

I need to find out the do's and don'ts when it comes to conducting business in Egypt. What kinds of things I should or should not mention, wear, or do while I am there. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

While in Egypt it is best to dress conservatively.
Women should have shoulders and knees covered, no tight clothes, short shorts, etc. Speech should also not be political or religious in nature. Try to keep a low profile and not stick out as a foreign
business person. Be prepared to barter for everything and allow for long discussions before the
real business is undertaken. Develop a taste for
tea which Egyptians serve in vast quantities!
