Integral stakeholder consultations

The (IBE) International Business Environment is multidimensional including the political risks, cultural differences, exchange risks, legal & taxation issues. Therefore (IBE) International Business Environment comprises the political, economic, regulatory, tax, social & cultural, legal, & technological environments.

Political Environment

The political environment refers to the type of the government, the government relationship with a business, & the political risk in the country. Doing business internationally, therefore, implies dealing with a different type of governments, relationships, & levels of risk.

There are many different types of political systems, for example, multi-party democracies, one-party states, constitutional monarchies, dictatorships (military & non-military). Therefore, in analyzing the political-legal environment, an organization may broadly consider the following aspects:

  • The Political system of the business;
  • Approaches to the Government towards business i.e. Restrictive or facilitating;
  • Facilities & incentives offered by the Government;
  • Legal restrictions for instance licensing requirement, reservation to a specific sector like the public sector, private or small-scale sector;
  • The Restrictions on importing technical know-how, capital goods & raw materials;
  • The Restrictions on exporting products & services;
  • Restrictions on pricing & distribution of goods;
  • Procedural formalities required in setting the business
