International Business Country Project Part A

 
This is Part A of the Country Analysis Project for BUS 366: International Business. This is an individual project.
Select two countries (neither one can be the United States).  These two countries will be the countries you use throughout all three parts of the project.  The Culture and Ethics parts listed below must be done for both countries.
  This Project is worth 37 points. I will run the submissions through an anti-plagiarism software.  Failure to reference the websites or any other research will result in a grade reduction of 3 points in your project score. 
 
Please place your name inside the file as a header. This makes it easier for me to grade and causes less confusion for you in the future. Failure to do this may result in points (-5) being subtracted from your grade.
Please note that I use Turn-It-In anti-plagiarism software.  If you directly quote a source, use quotation marks.  Any Turn-It-In score over 25% is subject to points being subtracted from your grade.
PLEASE NOTE: The countries you choose for Part A will be the countries you analyze for Parts B and C.  If, for some reason, information is not available for your countries at the websites cited by a particular question, please choose other countries to answer the questions.
