Research: market entry into China for medical devices

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

I am looking for some help on locating academia based articles (ABInform or lexis/Nexis) on market entry into China for medical devices. other types of regulated products (pharmaceuticals for example) could also be used if in close correlation. I am looking at early market entry needs/requirements, and whether a joint venture is the appropriate mechanism for market entry (versus other types like wholly owned subsidiary, etc.). Listing with abstracts would need to be sent for review of applicability to the topic.

Prepare a short report focusing on the economic policy and external debt, education, and infrastructure of India as it applies to your company's product. Make sure you examine the trends India may have been experiencing over the past few years in your selected variables. Your report should be a maximum of 1 page, double-spaced, Word or PDF document.

Activity 2: Research Activity: Business Taxation

The top management of your company has requested information on the tax policies of Denmark.

Activity 3: Research Activity: Hofstede's Dimensions

The cultural distance of countries in which your firm operates is one of the many explanations of significant differences that your U.S.-based employees face when travelling to different affiliates worldwide. Typically, an index of cultural distance can be determined by summing the squared differences of country-level scores such as those introduced by Hofstede's cultural dimensions and then taking the square root of the summation (this is called the Euclidean distance). At the present time, your firm has operations in Turkey, Poland, Costa Rica, South Africa, and Indonesia. Using the Hofstede Cultural Dimensions Resource Center based on studies involving cultural dimensions to assess all five countries, determine which affiliates are located in a culture that is least and most similar to the U.S. As there are four main components of each overall cultural distance score, which component(s) can be considered most influential for each country? Your report should be a maximum of 1 page, double-spaced, Word or PDF document. However, you can have unlimited number of exhibits that should be put in an Appendix in the same file.

Activity 4: Research Activity: Trade Barriers and Corruption

You work at a pharmaceutical company that is considering entering India, Chile, Canada, China and Turkey. Conduct the appropriate level of research in a trade barriers database to identify information on India's current requirements (tariffs, duties, non-tariff barriers, investment-related barriers, and intellectual property rights). Also, the company is worrying about potential corruption. Using Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) that is a comparative assessment of a country's integrity performance, find how the above countries rank. Further, identify the five countries with the lowest and the five with the highest CPI scores according to this index. Do you see any trends between CPI scores and the level of economic and social development of a country? Your report should be a maximum of 1 page, double-spaced, Word or PDF document. However, you can have unlimited number of exhibits that should be put in an Appendix in the same file.

Once there, select "Trade Barriers Database". Then under sector, select Pharmaceuticals; under country select all (e.g., highlight all countries or just the countries you need), and under measure select all. A series of reports are listed from which those with more general titles will provide adequate insight for the exercise.
