As part of its international expansion program, Acme, a U.S. multinational enterprise (MNE), is currently in the planning stages of establishing a greenfield production facility overseas. You have been asked to present a proposal to the steering committee comparing the advantages and disadvantages of starting operations in one of two selected foreign countries.
The steering committee has determined that one alternative must be a member of the European Union (EU) while the other cannot be a member of the EU. Subject to these conditions, choose any two foreign countries, except China, for comparison.
There are many factors to consider in this comparative analysis. Please be sure to include, among other topics, a discussion of the different countries' currencies, trade policies, and cultural variables that may affect operations and profitability in each country. Your report should conclude with a recommendation and supporting rationale as to which country should be selected for the new facility.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 3, 2020, 6:35 pm ad1c9bdddf
