Your organization, Sustainable Goods, is U.S. based and privately owned. Sustainable Goods is a big box retailer that specializes in products which are sustainable. Your organization has been cited by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) (Links to an external site.) as the leading organization for the sales and distribution of sustainable products.
You are the newly appointed Chief Operating Officer of the international branch of the organization. Sustainable Goods is considering which countries to expand into first. The President of the organization has tasked you with selecting one developed and one developing country to expand into as a pilot project.
Before completing this assignment, review the final deliverable. Background information found in the final deliverable applies to Milestones One through Three. For this milestone, you will analyze the potential impacts of Japan and Guatemala’s trade agreements. You will be responsible for researching each countryâ€™s trade agreements (and/or pending trade agreements) and selecting which ones could have the greatest potential impact on Sustainable Goodsâ€™ decision to conduct business in that country. This milestone builds on the research you completed in the Module One Short Paper assignment. Feel free to use the Research Guide (Links to an external site.) in the library to help you with your project.
Tasks: My chosen countries are Japan and Guatemala
Write a 2â€“3-page paper addressing the following:
Research all of the existing, and any pending, trade agreements for each of your chosen countries. Select the top three trade agreements for each country that have the greatest impact on Sustainable Goodsâ€™ ability to conduct business in that country.
Analyze the potential impacts that the three trade agreements you selected will have on your chosen countries. Also, explain why you did not select other trade agreements. Justify your analysis.
