The Asian Business Environment

This course examines cultural, demographic, political and economic issues that shape the Asian business environment. The region as a whole is profiled but particular attention is paid to China and India as emerging super powers. The importance of foreign direct investment to the development of this region is underscored as well as the emergence of Asian multinationals and their approach to outward direct investment. The challenges encountered by Western firms in penetrating Asian markets are discussed in detail. Consideration is given to the role of government in business transactions in this part of the world and the need for innovative strategies when dealing with Asian business partners. Special topics will include globalization versus sustainable development and the role of Asian countries in global outsourcing.
