Global marketing managers must commit to a precise global market entry continuum strategy for a selected foreign country market. More than anything, this strategy commitment relies upon partnerships with the foreign country and its economic market infrastructure entities (such as manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, utilities, media, and transportation).
The primary objective is to partner with a company capable of facilitating the desired foreign market presence for a domestic company brand. Typical partners are companies that use imported products to manufacture or merchandise brands in the foreign market.
Joint venture strategies comprise a range of partnerships, from licensing brand names and contract manufacturing of established products, to shared commitments to produce and market in the foreign country.
Direct investment strategies represent a total commitment to the foreign market and often involve partnering with suppliers, distributors, or other supportive entities for the venture.
For the product or service and host country market you selected in Week 1, do the following:

- Describe how the global market entry strategy and partnership achieves the continuum tradeoff objectives of balancing risks and rewards.
