Project #71003 - short assignment

  I want us to start discussing countries that are culturally close but geographically very far away, as well as countries that are geographically close but culturally very distant.  Specifically, I would like you to find 4 countries.  Two (2) countries should be geographically close but culturally distant and the other two countries should be geographically far but culturally close and similar.  The entire purpose of this exercise is for you to recognize that countries can be physically close but culturally so different that it may seem as if they are miles apart.  At the opposite end there are countries that are physically very far apart but culturally they have very similar practices.  Let's find these examples and talk about the implications for doing international business when one country is a host country and the other is a home country in this scenario.  

As a starting example; Fiji is very far from my home country of Trinidad and Tobago; but is very close culturally to where I come from.  One island (Fiji) is in the Pacific and the other is in the Caribbean but both countries have a similar population make up; half of the popluation is of East Indian decent and the other half is of African decent.  Both are obviously islands and the people from both islands look very much alike.  The religious beliefs and food are very similar however, both countries have a very different history that brought these 2 populations to where they are today.  In one example; Fiji it was almost like a natural migration in the other (T&T) it was because of the ending of the slave trade and a quest for another labor source.  However, because of these similarities there is a huge potential for these two countries to become trading partners because of similar tastes and practices by the 2 different populations.  Where there is a cultural similarity there is the possibility of business collaborations.  First time explorers are often better off going into a market that is similar culturally to their home market.  Let's find examples of similar cultures in distant locations and vice versa.
