Project #61344 - INTERNATIONAL RETAILING WEEK 3 ASS2

Assignment 2: Final Project: Target

Countries--> (TURKEY AND INDIA)

This week, you will create a report discussing the trade barriers and regulations and political and economic conditions in the countries you selected for Target.

Tasks:

For each of the countries that you selected for Target, outline the following information, in the template provided:

Economic Environment:

  • Discuss the economic measures, such as exchange rates, Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and Gross National Product GNP, GNP per capita, and Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) for both countries (see Chapter 1 of your textbook).
  • Compare the GDP, GNP and exchange rates to the United States’ figures. Also, compare GDP and GNP between the two countries. When comparing the economic well-being of individual nations, make sure you select the same measures.

Political Environment:

  • Describe the state of the government, political stability, and corruption potential that exists within the country.
  • Discuss recent political developments that could influence the decision to expand Target into the new country.

Trade Barriers and Regulations:

  • Identify trade barriers, such as tariffs, taxes, duties, and so on, that might require Target to adapt or revise its business strategy if it wishes to enter the new country.

Shipping: Incoterms are “international commercial terms” that are used to divide transaction costs and the responsibilities between buyer and seller. Incoterms deal with the questions related to the delivery of the products from the seller to the buyer. Companies utilize incoterms to define the responsibility for the freight. You can learn more about incoterms by using the following keyword search: “incoterms, chart of responsibility.”

  • Assume that Target wants to receive a shipment once the stores are open —there is no rush. It, however, wants to save money. In your opinion, which incoterms should Target choose while discussing terms of the transaction with an overseas vendor? Discuss who will be responsible for which transaction charges—Target or the vendor?
  • Based on the scenario, research the most effective shipping method (via plane, truck, train or ship) you recommend for Target.
  • Discuss the responsibilities associated with each of the parties involved in the transaction—Target and the overseas vendor.
  • Based on the above parameters you researched, identify the country that presents a better business opportunity to Target in terms of the economic, political and trade perspective.

Format:

  • Use your online school library for the research and include at least four credible outside sources in your report. Use charts, graphs, or graphics where applicable.
  • Prepare this week’s proposal by addressing all the #9 required elements listed above. Submit the completed Proposal in one Microsoft Word document by naming it AI_FRM410_W3_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.doc and submit it to the Discussion Area by Tuesday, March 10, 2015.
