I chose Philippines!! I will send you wonderful information about Philippines.

First of all, please look at this data. This data is called Hofstede because Mr. Hofstede studied about this.

There are big distance between Philippines and Japan.

At a score of 94, The Philippines is a hierarchical society. This means that people accept a hierarchical order in which everybody has a place and which needs no further justification. Hierarchy in an organization is seen as reflecting inherent inequalities, centralization is popular, subordinates expect to be told what to do and the ideal boss is a benevolent autocrat.

How about Japan? At an intermediate score of 54, Japan is a borderline hierarchical society. Yes, Japanese are always conscious of their hierarchical position in any social setting and act accordingly. However, it is not as hierarchical as most of the other Asian cultures. Some foreigners experience Japan as extremely hierarchical because of their business experience of painstakingly slow decision making process: all the decisions must be confirmed by each hierarchical layer and finally by the top management in Tokyo. Paradoxically, the exact example of their slow decision making process shows that in Japanese society there is no one top guy who can take decision like in more hierarchical societies. Another example of not so high Power Distance is that Japan has always been a meritocratic society. There is a strong notion in the Japanese education system that everybody is born equal and anyone can get ahead and become anything if he (yes, it is still he) works hard enough.

POWER DISTANCE

This dimension deals with the fact that all individuals in societies are not equal – it expresses the attitude of the culture towards these inequalities amongst us. Power Distance is defined as the extent to which the less powerful members of institutions and organisations within a country expect and accept that power is distributed unequally.

At a score of 94, The Philippines is a hierarchical society. This means that people accept a hierarchical order in which everybody has a place and which needs no further justification. Hierarchy in an organization is seen as reflecting inherent inequalities, centralization is popular, subordinates expect to be told what to do and the ideal boss is a benevolent autocrat.

The Philippines has the 4th highest power distance index in the world at 94 compared to Japan at 54.

There are rich people and poor people in the world. I think you have heard Japan is a hierarchical society on the news. Also, the Philippines is a hierarchical society, but the difference between rich and poor are pretty extreme in the Philippines. It isn’ t too much to say that poor people will never become rich people in the Philippines. Why? It is because poor people receive hardly any school education. They have to work to live instead.

I think it is important that a child can fully receive education as one of the solutions of problems of poverty.

I will introduce greeting of Tagalog in Philippines. In fact, however, people in Philippines often speak English.
