Exporting[ edit ] Many manufacturing firms began their global expansion as exporters and only later switched to another mode for serving a foreign market. Exports also include distribution of information sent as email, an email attachment, fax or in a telephone conversation. While restrictive business practices sometimes have a similar effect, they are not usually regarded as trade barriers. The most common foreign trade barriers are government-imposed measures and policies that restrict, prevent, or impede the international exchange of goods and services.
If the citizens are, for example, pro-Big Business then probably taxation will be modest and there will not be a lot of stringent rules about environmental considerations. The rules and regulations created by the politicians, have significant influence on the cost of running a business and the way it can market products and services - for example in Canada there are severe regulations about advertising for alcohol and tobacco.
For companies selling industrial products, which are often simply marketed by dimensions size, weight, height etc. For companies selling consumer products, particularly food and clothing, it is increasingly important to use all the languages of your customers in your promotion campaigns and communicate effectively with your target demographic.
Examples of influences of the socialcultural environment include regulations about language use in publications and broadcasts rules and laws about equality based on considerations of gender, race, sexual orientation, maritial status etc.
This is only one part of the world of business. The technological environment could be something as simple as whether or not vendors use Interac to receive payment, or do you have to pay cash.
The technological environment also covers road and rail and ocean transportation as well as communications. The ability of a company to be competitive also includes access to high speed communications - some parts of the world have highly developed fiber optic cables, other parts don't even have land lines for phones.
In some parts of Africa, technology has been delayed for decades, but when it did arrive, they skipped directly to cell phones without even bothering to put in telephone poles and land lines. One of the key characteristics of the technological environment is that the infrastructure is very expensive.
It is usually a national government who funds the projects that allow telephone and cell phone networks to be constructed. In reality, it is not so simple. Geography has a big place in e-commerce, especially when you think about the influences of distance to ship products sold online, and when you think about how geography influences the social-cultural environment language, customs, etc.
Geography also effects weather and weather has an effect on the internet from a technological point of view.
Weather situations can cause disruption of communication lines which means the "web is down" in parts of the world effected by a crisis. In some places effected by an earthquake, or tsunami, it can takes days or weeks for telecomm services to be restored and in that time period web based services cannot be accessed in the effected region.
Challenges apply when the land is very steep, which limits the available acreage of arable land so you cannot grow enough crops like n the sides of steep hills or old volcanoes as in the case of Japan.
Advantages take place when the land is flat, and the soil is rich in nutrients, like in our prairie provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. This land Canada has in the middle of our country gives us an incredible advantage in terms of being able to grow our own food.
Countries who have geographic environmental limitations have to import massive quantities of food which is expensive and, to some extent, effects the national sovereignty.I would say that most of the emails and calls that I am getting right now on Section A is whether rents will be Qualified Business Income (QBI) or not.
