The final project for this course is a written International Investment Report (this is just a piece). Your company (Eskom) wants you and your colleagues to research a possible investment in a foreign country.
You must evaluate the industry (Energy: Eskom) and country (South Africa) of investment to determine if the current circumstances in the specified country (South Africa) an support a business of your type. Issues such as privatization, identification of major competitors and overa ll strategy for entering the country should be discussed. Depending on industry, your branch could be only for local market, to produce products for export (US ma rket), or both. You must define the scenario.
The goal of the project is to analyze the prospects for expanding your company into the foreign country.
