and reduction of trade barriers assess emerging future trends
This is the first of five marketing briefs you will write, culminating in a final PowerPoint presentation in Week 6.
Imagine that you have just been selected to be a consultant to the United States Chamber of Commerce.
Your responsibility will be to create a series of five briefs, each with a different focus. This first brief will focus on the state of U.S. International Marketing in general. The final four briefs will be based on doing business between the United States and another country that you choose and the instructor approves (see Choose a Country).
In addition to the offices in the U.S., the Chamber maintains offices in many countries to aid U.S. businesses operating there. This is significant to your project because you will be writing your briefs for two audiences: the U.S. offices of the Chamber and the head of the office in the country in which you are proposing business dealings.
For this assignment, you will be completing your first brief for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
