Note: You may create and/or make all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment. The business can be any business of your choosing, although it is recommended that you choose a field in which you are currently working or have previously worked so that you are starting with more knowledge. If your selection is a private organization, we ask that you remove any identifying information that would enable someone to identify this organization(s).

For this assignment, you will utilize the different resources listed below (plus your own research strategies) to select a qualified country for your company’s international expansion. To begin, go to the World Bank Group’s Website and review the “Economy Rankings” report located at http://www.doingbusiness.org/rankings. Choose two (2) countries from the list (one [1] from the top of the rankings and one [1] from the bottom) to complete a comparison of risks. The goal of the risk comparison is to examine the risk factors associated with expanding into the selected countries. You may discuss any of the eleven (11) categories on the report when examining the risk to technology, payment security, physical good / product security, etc. in your risk comparison.

For additional information on the selected countries, you can visit the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) “World Factbook” found at https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook. You may also use the Internet or Strayer databases to conduct any additional research.
Use the basic outline below to draft your paper. Organize your responses to each question (except Questions 1 and 6) under the following section headings:Higher-Ranking Country is Considered the Safer Strategy for Expansion. (for Question 2)Lower-Ranking Country is Considered the Risky Strategy for Expansion. (for Questions 3)Identify which Country You Selected and Why. (for Questions 4 and 5)Write a five to seven (5-7) page paper in which you do the following:Provide a brief (one [1] paragraph) description of the organization you have selected for this project. Present the main drivers supporting the decision to expand internationally. Select your expansion strategy (Export, International, Multinational, or Global) and explain this decision.Provide a brief description of the higher-ranking country you have selected for this project.  Next, analyze the various rankings (provided by the World Bank or CIA World Factbook sites) and discuss the strengths, weaknesses, and key benefits of this selection. You will then examine this country’s major existing trade agreements and predict whether they will assist or deter your venture.Provide a brief description about the lower-ranking country you have selected for this project.  Next, analyze the various rankings (using the same websites as stated above) and discuss the strengths, weaknesses, and key benefits of this selection. You will then examine this country’s major existing trade agreements and predict whether they will assist or deter your venture.Based on your research of comparative advantage, present the primary risks (economic, political, cultural, language, etc.) associated with expanding into the lower-ranking country versus the higher-ranking country. Next, provide the competitive advantages (economic, political, cultural, language, etc.) associated with expanding into the lower-ranking country versus the higher-ranking country.Based on this comparative advantage study, suggest which country is the better choice and provide a rationale for your selection. Next, state which key factors you can identify to support your decision.Use at least three (3) quality references. Note: Wikipedia and other websites do not qualify as academic resources.Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:Be typed, doublespaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format.

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"

Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied
