  • What type of economic system does it have?
    • What is the history of that economic system?
  • How is the country involved in international trade?
    • How does the government get involved in trade issues?
    • Will that help or hurt your financial institution?
  • Will your presence in this country be helpful in your attempts to invest in other developing countries?
  • Is this country involved in any regional integration efforts? How so?
  • Why did you choose this location for your bank?
  • As a manager, what would be your overall assessment about whether you want to pursue opening an office there?
    • Are the financial risks worth taking?
    • Will it be beneficial to all of the stakeholders?
    • If you decide to pursue this, what type of presence do you think would be best suited to your objectives?
