Portfolio Project

Portfolio Project about Venezuela if possible,otherwise India would work too.

Imagine that you are an executive with a multinational corporation that wants to open a manufacturing facility in an underdeveloped country (venezuela preferred, but India would work).

You have been assigned the responsibility of preparing a report on the suitability of a particular country for investment. Your company is concerned with the investment climate in this country, but is equally interested in the political stability, social and cultural environment since it will be making a substantial financial commitment. Your corporation views this as not only an opportunity to make a profit, but also as a humanitarian effort to help improve the standard of living in a lesser developed country.
For your portfolio project, select a country in Africa, Asia or South America and study that country in depth, applying concepts covered throughout the course. Also, select a film (possibly a documentary or YouTube video) or identify a website that provides at least three different pages about your country. You will review this video or text for the Week 4 Critical Thinking Assignment.
