Like in home market, the partners need to be given incentive to encourage they work harder, to grow the market as fast as possible. The product price in the entering market may be not the same in home market. In developing countries, the company should offer their product with another benefits or lower price than offering in home market. They have to concern about long term strategy , purchasing power or the quality of other competitors. III.
