This high dependability on banks is in fact making this banking industry highly competitive and concentrated as discussed below.

What will result is onset of competition that will increase the innovativeness of the banks as each struggle to attract the highest number of industries in form of customers. Attractiveness in Banking Investment Introduction The recent years have seen a rise in large and well-established banks in developed economies.

As such, there have been debates on whether or not large banks should be broken up into small banks that have less market power. Scholars from Vietnam and China advocated for the need to break up banks in...

... FOREIGN EMPLOYMENT: A PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE John Smith Grantham University BA405 Multinational Management December 12, 2014 FOREIGN EMPLOYMENT: A PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE I have often thought of working and living in a foreign country. As a soldier, I was able to achieve that while stationed in Germany and South Korea. As a soldier though, one does not get the full effect of living within a society that has norms, customs and traditions different from those we find in the United States. To work and live in a foreign country as a private citizen would be a terrific experience. Much thought has been given over the years as to where. Perhaps Belize, where it is always warm, costs are comparatively inexpensive and a place that has a motto for tourist that says “go slow”. There’s probably not going to be much going there though where one can pull down a livable wage with benefits. Africa has also sounded good from time to time. I once met a soldier from Ghana. He informed me one day he was going home for vacation and as the conversation progressed, I learned that on an income of less than $1500 one could live like a king with an estate, a driver and servants. However, Western Africa may be a bit hostile for my taste. As the list narrows, I am left with Mexico, Germany and England. I have never been to England. To begin with, I would never give up my citizenship as an American. I enjoy the American...

Foreign Country Analysis

...India The Republic of India is a country located in South Asia and the capital is New Delhi. It is the seventh largest country in the world, slightly more than one third the size of the United States. It is also the second most populated country with over 1.22 billion people. India’s economy is continuing to grow and based on the purchasing power parity, it is the third largest in the world at 4.76 trillion dollars. India is also the second largest in the world when it comes to workforce. India’s three major economic sectors are: agriculture, industry, and services. The original official currency of India is the Indian rupee. The Indian rupee has been falling against the US dollar, as shown in the graph below. The exchange rate between the Indian rupee and the US dollar over the past five years are: 43.319 in 2008, 48.405 in 2009, 45.726 in 2010, 46.671 in 2011, and 53.437 in 2012. (CIA) This means that one US dollar is equivalent to 53.437 rupees, in the year of 2012. This also means that the value of rupee is depreciating. A weaker rupee has its pros and cons. A weaker currency will make imports more expensive, the price of oil and other materials to import from foreign countries will go up. Since one of the big imports of India is crude oil, it only makes the economy worse. Higher oil price means higher transportation price, so therefore producing products will be more expensive and that leads to higher inflation. Rupee depreciation has its bright side for companies...

Selling Natural Gas to a Foreign Country

...ienYou are a junior manager of international development at Cantafio oil and Gas, LLC. Because of the success in drilling in tight formation thanks to horizontal drilling and fracking, Cantafio oil and gas, LLC, -like many in our industry- has an abundance of natural gas reserves. A constraint on profitability is that like all U.S businesses we are legally prohibited from selling natural gas abroad. With the oversupply of natural gas, the domestic price is depressed. However, recently there has been significant progress in modifying current law to allow the sale of natural gas to foreign entities. While no far reaching legislation has been passed, it is important to be proactive and begin to conduct research to determine what might be profitable foreign markets to sell natural gas. You have been asked to identify a foreign country that would be a receptive market for our liquefied natural gas product. Identify the responsible governmental entity in that foreign country with whom we are going to have to conduct business. Include an analysis of the legal barriers in the United States and that target country before we conduct business. You will need to explain how it is liquefied natural gas can be sold to a foreign country in light of current American law. Remember, this is a memo. Your first decision is to identify the foreign nations to conduct business. Ultimately, this project will be turned over to our legal team to more thoroughly conduct analysis of this......

However, only introduce market and resource is not enough to analyses all factors related with country and industry opportunities aspect. It is so necessary to consider that incentive and competition factors. More specifically, in incentive factors, taxation policy is a key factor which will influence investments. This is not means that low tax attract more investment. In fact, more healthy and clear tax policy could play more positive roles in country’s influence power. Even most developed countries have higher tax rates while those countries may still experience more VC/PE investments (Groh & Liechtenstein, 2012). Moreover, infrastructure is another factor which have influence on a country’s attractiveness, especially for most developing countries (Groh & Wich, 2009). According Groh and Wich’s research, it can be found that Singapore is a highly attractive for foreign investors because of good developed infrastructures and other related factors.

... hugely dependent on the interest rate differential between two countries. A country like India where int. rate is around 7-8% experiences greater capital inflow as investors get better return than what they might get in US. (with Interest rates of 2-3%). This results into rupee appreciation. * Inflation Rate: The demand for a country’s goods & services by the foreign buyers would be more if the inflation rate is lower in that country compared to other countries. Higher demand for goods & services would mean higher demand for that currency resulting in the appreciation of that currency. For instance if India’s inflation rate is lower than that of Zimbabwe then the demand for our goods, services and currency would be higher than that for Zimbabwe’s. * Export-Import: If a country is exporting more than its imports from other countries, then this would mean higher demand for that currency, causing appreciation of that currency against others. * Trading in currencies in the Forex market: The exchange rate fluctuates minute by minute because of speculative trading in the Forex market. The Indian rupee has depreciated by about 12% since July and touched the psychological mark of Rs 50 recently. A few reasons for this are: * The euro economic crisis, led by default concerns of Greece and the downgrading of two French banks has led to a loss of confidence in the Euro resulting in its devaluation against the dollar.
