I need a page answer on this question
BUSINESS MEMO WITH DOCUMENTED RESEARCH
Format: Use the memo format entitled “”.
Length: 2 pages (not including bibliography)
References: Provide at least 4 footnoted or parenthetically cited references and a bibliography in APA format. One of these references should come from one of Park’s Online Library databases (Lexis-Nexis, Ebsco, ProQuest, etc.) – see Navigation Bar on left. One reference must come from a government (.gov or .mil) site such as the CIA World Factbook or the Library of Congress (Links to an external site.). and one from a .com, .edu, or .org site. Do not use Wikipedia as a documented reference.
Potential audience: Your primary reader will be the company CEO, who is somewhat detail-oriented, is very focused on the company’s goals. The CEO is somewhat of a stickler about needing reliable and current information for decision making.
Background and Scenario: Assume that your employer, a North American company with approximately 300 employees, will soon begin doing business in a specific foreign country, and that 25 employees, including you, may be transferred there. The CEO has asked you to conduct research on the current conditions in that country, and report your findings in a memo to him.
Read four or more articles on that country from recent newspapers or magazines, or from other sources, especially online. Describe in a memo what you have learned about economic, political, business, and other current conditions in the country. Cover at least the current economic, business, and political conditions in separate, well-developed paragraphs, each of which should contain documented information from your research and your analysis as to how that information relates to the company’s mission and goals. Do not report on cultural considerations for doing business in that country; you will focus on this in your next writing assignment.
NOTE: You may pick any country you like, and the hypothetical company may be involved in any type of business you like.
In addition to Park’s Online Library resources, use search engines, libraries and other means to look for information on the Internet and elsewhere. I encourage you to work together on the research, and will be pleased to help.
Two additional sites you’ll find useful are:
The CIA World Factbook (Links to an external site.). (Links to an external site.) This is an important site for information on countries. This site is especially good for support of research for doing business internationally.
The World Newspaper List (Links to an external site.). This site contains links to English versions of all of the major newspapers in most of the countries of the world. Be sure to check it out!
