For this assignment your requirement is to develop a PowerPoint presentation for management that describes, discusses, and analyzes the key business environment considerations below.
1. Discuss the economic characteristics of the selected market place you have chosen and determine if these charateristics will be either in favor or not in favor for the proposed expansion.
2. What ethical issues may Target be confronted with in the selected market place? How will we manage ethics and corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the recommended market place? What regulations will we face involving ethics and responsibility in the selected market place.
