  • Factual:
    1) Why do businesses expand globally?
    One of the reasons why businesses expand globally is not only because you will increase the number of potential consumers of your product or service, but also because you can introduce your business to other cultures. By doing this, more people around the world will find out about the business and start to introduce others as well. Therefore gaining more profit.

    Conceptual:
    2) How can we analyse a market’s suitability for expansion?
    We can analyse this by using the PEST analysis. By using this analysis, we can clearly see the opportunities and threats a market may have due to the political, environmental, socio-cultural, technological etc. factors. For example, if you were to open a Tim Hortons coffee business in HK, looking at the socio-cultural sides, it would be a great idea as there are around 300 000 Canadians living in Hong Kong right now and they can introduce them to the well known Canadian franchise.

    3) How does one determine if an action is ethical?
    They can determine the action based on their intentions. Figure out why the action should be taken and consider any negatives but also positives to the action. The most important thing would be to see how it affects others in your community but maybe also globally.

    Debatable:
    4) To what extent do businesses behave ethically?

    Firstly, the businesses choices has to be legal. Also, it should follow any regulations, rules, and policies that might restrict your choices. Other than all the legal rules, you should think about how the action may affect others. If the action is ethical, it should not affect others in a negative way, but rather with respect, friendly competition, and are honest with no deceiving. This is important because it means you are being fair, shows people that you are open-minded and also creates a good reputation for the business. In addition to that, some unethical actions would be actions such as being harmful to the environment, not being fair to the employees such as not paying the amount they deserve, and also copying people’s ideas. For example, people would use cheap materials that are harmful to the environment just to gain more profit.
    5) To what extent does globalization create opportunities for business?
    Globalization creates opportunities for businesses as it provides them a larger selling audience, therefore more people will buy their products and increase their profit if successful. The larger selling audience also helps them become more well known around the world. For example, if an American brand comes to HK and becomes successful,  it is most likely that Asia, japan, Singapore etc. will soon hear about the news. However as globalization happens so fast sometimes, businesses may find it hard to catch up with the current trends and satisfy the needs and wants of the customers. For example as Hong Kong is such a fast moving and developing location, coffee shops and clothing stores may need to keep on thinking of new creative ideas to keep their consumers interested. If the consumers are not interested and they get bored, no profit will be gained.
