Challenges Of International Business
Several businesses today are global businesses too and with the increase of technology and real time experiences on the internet conducting global business has become simpler than ever. All the aspects of global business like interacting with people, business planning, holding conferences and communication happens on the internet and not at the actual location.
Since we are talking about international business here we would like to believe that the other end of the business is located in a fast developing country and not in third world.
Every business has its difficulties and presents is own challenges in when it comes to operating it successfully. For example, the nature of business may not be accepted openly in the targeted country because of cultural differences. Also, international businesses face several restrictions like acceptance, usability, application of the product locally and customer service issues. Even though English is a very popular language it is in the end spoken only in a few countries as a primary language. Some of the people in other countries have never uttered a single word in English their entire lives. So the company which is starting a business in such a place should have a contingency plan where they can provide service in their language for example.
If a company can cross over the language and cultural barriers, then most of their blocks have been cleared. Also the business ethics matter and the any international organization cannot have standard ethics that apply globally. They have to be changed and altered.
