Article analysis for setting up of operations in foreign countries

As you recall, we are working on a course project. The final deliverable of the course project is a detailed memo that you will prepare, outlining the opportunities and constraints of establishing operations in another country from a legal
perspective. There are three parts to the project.
This is Phase 3 of the assignment. Include two- to three-recent articles and/or cases that you can locate in the CSU
Online Library or on the Internet, concerning opening and operating a business within a foreign country. These types of recent articles and/or cases are important in supporting your project.
A useful website is the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL),, which has a library and research resource database for you to utilize.
Articles that will be pertinent to your project could include information from or about the following:
 United Nations Commission on International Trade,
 U.S. International Trade Administration,
 International Organization for Standardization,
 foreign corrupt practices,
 international business etiquette and manners,
 United States International Trade Commission,
World Trade Organization,
 International Labour Organization,
 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, and
 World Intellectual Property Organization.
Write a two- to three-page summarization of the articles. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in proper APA style.
Please submit all three phases for the final course project that you started developing in Unit III and Unit V. As you
complete your final phase, be sure to incorporate the instructor feedback from the Phase 1 and Phase 2 assignment
submissions. Be sure to include your title and reference pages along with your table of contents
