resources.

I selected Malaysia for my location. Located south of Thailand between the South China
Sea and the Bay of Bengal, Malaysia has a tropical, humid climate with temperatures
averaging 86°F. Malaysia’s natural resources include: Petroleum, liquefied natural gas,
tin, and minerals. Malaysia’s agricultural products include: Palm oil, rubber, timber,
cocoa, rice, tropical fruit, fish, and coconut. The product I decided to export is bottled
water, or personal water filtration systems. Malaysia is surrounded by ocean water, but
drinkable, fresh water may not always be available. Businesses can purchase the filtration
system and place them in new buildings or the Government of Malaysia could
purchase water filtration systems and give them to low income individuals or individuals
living in areas where development has affected or contaminated the water supply.
After reviewing the chapter reading, and placing careful thought into the DQ. I have
came to the conclusion, that Thailand would be my pick for a newly industrializing
country. This country which is know for its culture, and hidden beauty has sought to keep
its roots along the years. Making this country one of my favorite countries to talk about.
Even during hard times as the current events around us take place, the community of this
hidden beauty has kept its tradition, and continues to grow.
Thailand is mainly a tropical place has been trading for years, and with that comes rice.
Rice is fairly expensive compared to the American Dollar spent on the same product.
With that said, rice would be product of choice for Thailand. The effects that would take
place on rice both economic, and socioeconomic's, would be a positive impact both ways.
With providing rice to Thailand it will lower the cost, as well as the work load connected
to labor cost to produce.

Rice is a important product to both the country, and the community as it is the backbone
of revenue for Thailand. This would increase a friendly relationship between the trade
countries, as well as perform a better service for a special country.
A choose Mexico and the product I chose is steel toe boots. The reason I choose them is
because Mexico has many mountain ranges. They are the Sierra Madre Oriental, Sierra
Madre Occidental, and Sierra Madre del Sur. The climate ranges in the north is extreme
and can be cold in winter months. The natural resources are petroleum, Silver, cooper,
gold, lead, zinc, natural gas, and timber. Mining and lumbering are both big industries so
steel toe boots would be useful for this industries and for mountain climbing. The
location of Mexico is south of the United States in the southern part of North America.
Since the boots would be used for workers and the economy is based on workers then I
am confident this product will flourish in Mexico.

Music and Folklore
I choose the Musical commercials and how they are generally popular worldwide, but the
marketer must know what kind of music each market prefers, because tastes vary. Thus, a
commercial that used a ballad in the United States might be better received to the tune of
a bolero in Mexico or a samba in Brazil.
The incorrect use of folklore can sometimes cost the firm a share of the market. For
example, associating a product with the cowboy would not obtain the same results in
Chile or Argentina as in the United States, because in these countries the cowboy is a far
less romantic figure—it’s just a job.
I chose Brazil as the newly industrialized country to export to. I have chosen to export
harvesting equipment, such as combines, wind-rowers, and the proper attachments for
these machines to Brazil. I have chosen to export this equipment due to the fact that
Brazil grows large crops of cotton, corn, and wheat. Currently many of these crops are
being harvested by hand or outdated machines. The use of modern harvesting equipment
would lower the labor level required for harvesting, thus allowing crops to be harvested
in a timely manner. The longer crops remain in the field after they are ready to be
harvested, the higher the chance of the crops being ruined by weather or other factors.
The exporting of this equipment would also stimulate the economy because these
machines would need to be serviced and repaired. Exporting harvesting equipment to
Brazil would stimulate the economy and increase the efficiency of the agricultural
industry, thus resulting in higher profits with less labor hours.

Documents were of surprisingly high quality, and not like anything I’ve seen on other sites. Very impressed at how even a university level assignment was handled.
