Your company wants to put a ball-bearing factory in Africa. Your company predicts this is where the most growth will be in the 21st century. Your assignment is to research a country on the African continent that you think would be the most advantageous to your company in cultural, economic, and political environments.
Your assignment is to point out and explain the facts or statistics that you think would make this country a good place to build and staff your factory. Remember to keep the cultural, economic, and political environments in mind. Your presentation must include at least two facts or statistics that relate to each environmental area (cultural, economic, and political).
Feel free to use the suggested readings as a starting point for your research on sources of data about different countries in the world. You must use at least three authoritative sources, and you are required to use the CSU Online Library for at least one of your sources. Pull a minimum of two facts or statistics from each source that you use.
Some good examples of authoritative sources are provided below:
The U.S. State Department http://www.state.gov/p/af/ci/index.htm
The World Bank http://data.worldbank.org/country
The Academic Search Complete database features information on countries through the CIA World Factbook.
The Business Source Complete database has a “Country Report” that can be selected in the Publication Type area. These reports by country can be 200-plus pages and are very in depth.
Your PowerPoint presentation should be a minimum of 10 slides. Be sure to use APA guidelines to cite and reference the sources for your facts.
