Demobilized servicemen are carried in a ready reserve , which is reinforced by a standby reserve of veterans and by the militia. The PLA is formally under the command of the Central Military Commission ...
Apple in China: Niche player or potential market leader ...

Would Apple improve its competitive position by leveraging the consumer experience and vast manufacturing expertise of the high-tech Chinese market? To answer these questions we must look at Apple’s history, its market approach in developing countries and the Chinese appetite for high-tech products. Apple started in 1976 by college colleagues Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.  Throughout the years, the company has ... market research, surveys and trends

THE GLOBAL BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT : Economic from Global Management ...
Business competitiveness has now evolved to a level of sophistication that many term globalism: global competition characterized by networks that bind countries, institutions, and people in an interdependent global economy. The invisible hand of global competition is being propelled by the phenomenon of an increasingly borderless world. As described by Kenichi Ohmae, The nation-state itself- that artifact of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries-has begun to crumble, battered by a pent-up storm of political resentment, ethnic prejudice, tribal hatred, and religious animosity.3 As a result of global economic integration, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

with the loss of 11 lives and many more livelihoods, the period has been the most traumatic and catastrophic since William Knox d'Arcy laid the foundations of the business back in 1901. For the coastline populations of the states bordering the Gulf of Mexico, the oil washing on to what should have been holiday beaches and inching up inland creeks represents economic and ecological agony, for the oil industry an ugly and unacceptable stain, for President Obama a political minefield, and for BP a total failure of all it holds dear – its management, its engineering, its reputation and credibility. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
