A painting company has determined that for the company to expand globally over the next several years, its executives must be aware of any political and economic concerns that may arise during the expansion.
Use the library, course materials, and other Web resources to write a report (3–4 pages) for the senior management team. Your report will inform their strategic decisions about the company’s expansion.
Please address the following:
- Describe at least 2 political and 2 economic issues that may arise during global expansion, and propose methods of addressing them. (Choose issues that are distinct from those that are purely domestic).
- Explain the importance of and implications of each issue with regard to the company’s proposed expansion to France.
- Find an example and explain in general terms how another company has handled one of the international expansion issues you raised (does not have to relate to France).
Your report must include a reference list. All research should be cited in the body of the paper. Your report should contain an abstract, a short introduction, and conclusion in addition to the body of the paper (note: the 3–4 pages length requirement excludes the title page and reference list pages). Please note that if you have a source in your reference section, you need to cite it in the body of the paper per APA guidelines and vice-versa.
