Assignment 3: Graded Weekly Assignment: International Business Memo—Andrea and Lena’s Coffee Business
Andrea and Lena are from Panama, and are now living in the U.S. They have a chance to invest in a coffee business in Panama, and want to look into not only running the coffee plantation but exporting the coffee globally. They consult your firm for advice.
Your attorney asks you to research the three forms of international business—
- Trade (import and export)
- Intellectual property rights and international licensing agreements
- Direct foreign investment
In an internal memo for your attorney, explore these three areas, and provide the pros and cons of each of these forms of business. Provide advice for the client about each form of international business and any associated risks.
