Successful Domestic Company Goes Global!

Due Week 6 and worth 280 points
Imagine that you are the CEO of a successful domestic company. In the  last 6 months, many potential clients in foreign countries have  expressed a desire to conduct business with you. You know that in order  for your company to grow, you will have to expand overseas. You have  recently attended a local three (3)-day international trade exposition  and have gathered many brochures on the foreign companies interested in  doing business with your company.
After meeting with the  Executive Committee of your successful domestic company, you decide that  you will need to identify a minimum of two (2) countries for expansion  and two (2) expatriates whom you will send into the chosen countries.  The selected expatriates will learn about the countries’ cultures and  business activities there. You must prepare a report for the potential  employees who may want to take an overseas assignment, the Executive  Committee, and the Board of Directors.
Use the Internet and  Strayer Library to research possible countries for expansion. Next,  conduct research on leveraging expatriates over country nationals for  business overseas. Finally, research books that could help expatriates  in their transition to working overseas.
Note: You may create and / or assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment.
