Location (include a map and a short paragraph describing the location of the country)
Population and demographics (ages, sex, etc.) (Include a small analysis of the country demographics)
Income per capita (most recent year) (Include a small paragraph analyzing what does that means and how it
compares to other countries)
Main exports and Main Imports (Make a table of both and detail the year and the source)
GDP growth (%) over the past 5 years (create a graph with the source at the bottom and a brief analysis of
what does this mean)
Key relevant issues in International business-related areas (Politics, economics, social, and trade related) Use
bullets and small analysis next to each bullet. The “issues” must include major historical legacies that have
affected the development of the assigned country. The profile will also include the roles of public, private and
third sectors in the country.
The country’s competitive advantage(s) (local, regional, national, international) Identify and analyze the
country’s competitive advantage. This is: why is this the competitive advantage of the country? How did you
arrive to that conclusion?
Future prospects (business, political movements, etc.)International business-related prospects, scenarios,
projects, etc. You will identify the institutions in the country that may be weak or strong and comment on those.
At the end of this analysis, identify a specific business opportunity that you would pursue in this country, based
on your findings. This business opportunity needs to be specific and could be an entrepreneurial venture; or an
expansion of an existing western business model; or even a project that involves non-profits and social goals.
You must explain why there is an opportunity and why it hasn’t been taken advantage of in the past. (Think of
this point as a strategic move)
Thirdly, Vittola argues that war should be avoided (Begby et al (2006b), Page 332) and that we should proceed circumstances diplomatically. This is supported by the “last resort” stance in Frowe, where war should not be permitted unless all measures to seek diplomacy fails (Frowe (2011), Page 62). This means war shouldn’t be declared until one party has no choice but to declare war, in order to protect its territory and rights, the aim of war. However, we can also argue that the war can never be the last resort, given there is always a way to try to avoid it, like sanctions or appeasement, showing Vittola’s theory is flawed. Fourthly, Vittola questions upon whose authority can demand a declaration of war, where he implies any commonwealth can go to war, but more importantly, “the prince” where he has “the natural order” according to Augustine, and all authority is given to him. This is further supported by Aristotle’s Politics ((1996), Page 28): ‘a king is the natural superior of his subjects.’ However, he does later emphasise to put all faith in the prince is wrong and has consequences; a thorough examination of the cause of war is required along with the willingness to negotiate rival party (Begby et al (2006b), Page 312& 318). This is supported by the actions of Hitler are deemed unjustly. Also, in today’s world, wars are no longer fought only by states but also non-state actors like Al-Queda and ISIS, showing Vittola’s normative claim on authority is outdated. This is further supported by Frowe’s claim that the leader needs to represent the people’s interests, under legitimate authority, which links on to the fourth condition: Public declaration of war. Agreed with many, there must be an official announcement on a declaration of war (Frowe (2011), Page 59-60&63). Finally, the most controversial condition is that wars should have a reasonable chance of success. As Vittola reiterated, the aim of war is to establish peace and security; securing the public good. If this can’t be achieved, Frowe argues it would be better to surrender to the enemy. This can be justified because the costs of war would have been bigger (Frowe (2011), Page 56-7).>GET ANSWER
