Page 4: -GLOBAL BUSINESS- EXPORTING  & IMPORTING

1.1 The Current Situation

Commerce of the world is changing rapidly affect domestic business profoundly.

U.S. has not pursued development of export markets as aggressively as many other countries balance of trade = (-) since the 1970s.

Much of the economic growth of the next century will occur in developing nations.

Many entrepreneurs do not even consider opportunities in IB feel the domestic market > enough & any business in a foreign country = complications.

Page 5: -GLOBAL BUSINESS- EXPORTING  & IMPORTING

1.2 The Decision to Start Exporting

The most basic concern in deciding whether to go international with a product is its export potential. Some products seem to fit well into many cultures; others have very limited appeal in cultures other than their origin.

In addition to the question of whether the firm’s product will be accepted, the reasons why the move is being considered and what it will mean to the company’s operations must be examined.

Page 6: -GLOBAL BUSINESS- EXPORTING  & IMPORTING

1.3 Developing and Export Plan

One early step in the development of an export plan is the identification of products that are export ready. This step includes product design and technology.

The country or countries to which product are to be exported must be selected.

The price to be charged may be based on a number of factors, including the costs of serving the market, the objectives of the firm, competition, etc.

Page 7: -GLOBAL BUSINESS- EXPORTING  & IMPORTING

1.4 Getting Established in an International Market

One approach to entering the international market is through indirect exporting. This involves the use of an outside individual or organization to assist in marketing and/or shipping the product.

The direct approach to exporting is much more ambitious because it requires the company to make all the arrangements with the foreign buyers, including shipping, marketing, promoting, servicing, selecting channels of distribution, etc.

Page 8: -GLOBAL BUSINESS- EXPORTING  & IMPORTING

1.5 Getting Paid Dealing with a buyer in another country

can be very risky because of the ways in which culture and laws may differ.

The conventional way of removing the uncertainty regarding the payment is the letter of credit.

Page 9: -GLOBAL BUSINESS- EXPORTING  & IMPORTING

1.6 Government Assistance

General export counseling is offered by the MITI to firms and individuals new to exporting.

Industry specifics are provided by the Matrade to entrepreneurs who need information on world trade in a particular industry.

Several programs of the MATRADE of commerce provide information on specific countries.

The Government also provides customized research on overseas markets.

Page 11: -GLOBAL BUSINESS- EXPORTING  & IMPORTING

2.1 INTRODUCTION

One way of locating the product to bring into the country is by searching for sources internationally.

Another Way to locate goods to import is by spotting opportunities to make foreign goods that currently are not marketed domestically available to the local market.

Page 12: -GLOBAL BUSINESS- EXPORTING  & IMPORTING

2.2 Getting the Goods Into the Country

The first of five steps in the process is entry, during

which a variety of shipping documents are used. Inspection of the goods is made to determine

whether the goods can be brought into the country. After the goods have been inspected, an appraisal of

their value is made. The next step involves the Customs Service

classifying the import to establish what duty should be charged.

With the rate of duty and the value of the goods, the amount of duty can be determined; this step is known as liquidation.

Page 13: -GLOBAL BUSINESS- EXPORTING  & IMPORTING

2.3 Selling the Goods If the entrepreneur used the sourcing

method of locating goods, the buyers of the imported goods are rather easily identified. They are the current users of the product for whom the better price and/or value is appealing.

Opportunity-spotting importers, on the other hand, may find they have to use a number of channels to develop a sufficiently high level of sales.
