Working with people from other cultures and global business.

One of the things a global business would like to do when they go global is to capitalize on things like economies of scale and transfers of different technologies and information; this would include knowledge that could be gained by working with companies and businesses in foreign countries that you may be invested in.

As it turns out, I’ve been in a situation similar to this. I’m working in a foreign country and am supposed to be from a developed country (U.S.) and have what I think is something to offer in the local country– I think no one told the locals that! I could get into CVs and stats but I think I’ll spare you specifics. They’re [country] “on track” for world developed nation status (WDNS) in about 2020-2025 and could use the help, trouble is many locals seem not to care and the others think they’re already there.

Since my primary objective is to stay married and live happily ever after with my foreign wife– I’m not obliged nor am I overly enthusiastic about convincing them otherwise. Fact be told, I’m digging the great experiment!
