Introduction

Touro University International Kevin J. Hall (5332) Bus401 International Business Module 1Case Assignment Professor: Dr. Anastasia Luca Coca-Cola Company With the fruition of globalization in the eminent future and competition for business rights in foreign markets, the absolute necessity of international business has been realized.

This local, decentralized system is what drives The Coca-Cola Company's further global and market share expansion.

Conclusion

All this plus the importance of "local knowledge, depth of experience and diverse perspectives- our business benefits immensely from the incredibly varied backgrounds and personalities of our Asian partners and employees.

This change in mindset spurred a thirst for Coca-Cola products in India and opened a population of over one billion to The Coca-Cola Company. With influence over this part of South East Asia Coca-Cola draws closer to its soon truly global aspirations. The Coca-Cola Company's ability to adapt and overcome while having a positive influence on all of its international markets is a fine example of doing "good business". With respect and values being the corner stone of a global strategy it is easy to understand the importance of Coca-Cola's expansion into India, the rest of the South East Asian nations, and frankly the entire globe. Globalization has truly been realized. ...read more.
