Export Competititveness

...international competitiveness. In developing countries high economic growth rate and increases in productivity depend not on innovation but on importing foreign plants and equipment and on borrowing foreign technology (Zhang and Zou, 1995). Technological progress is very critical in enhancing the manufacturing capacity of both the export and non-export sectors of the economy in order to achieve global competitiveness. The non-export sector as an import competing sector should be technologically positioned to compete with competitively priced imports, while the export sector which is biased towards primary commodities at the expense high-value and high technology intensity manufactures should diversify away from primary commodity dependency. While Zimbabwe registered a 62.5% growth in exports, only 7.5% is generated from manufactures, a cumulative 91.5% of exports originated from exporting primary commodities as follows minerals 64.5%, tobacco 17.5%, agriculture 8.4%, horticulture 0.7% and hunting safari 0.4%, (RBZ, 2010). Zimbabwe’s long-term export strategy should therefore focus on transforming from a resource-driven to a technology-driven export sector.

Export Strategy

...EXPORT STRATEGY ASSESSING A PRODUCT'S EXPORT POTENTIAL There are several ways to gauge the overseas market potential of products and services. (For ease of reading, products are mentioned more than services in this guide, but much of the discussion applies to both.) One of the most important ways is to assess the product's success in domestic markets. If a company succeeds at selling in a domestic market, there is a good chance that it will also be successful in markets abroad, wherever similar needs and conditions exist. In markets that differ significantly from the domestic market, some products may have limited potential. Those differences may be climate and environmental factors, social and cultural factors, local availability of raw materials or product alternatives, lower wage costs, lower purchasing power, the availability of foreign exchange (hard currencies like the dollar, the British pound, and the Japanese yen), government import controls, and many other factors. If a product is successful in a domestic market, one strategy for export success may be a careful analysis of why it sells here, followed by a selection of similar markets abroad. In this way, little or no product modification is required. If a product is not new or unique, low-cost market research may already be available to help assess its overseas market potential. In addition, international trade statistics (available in many local libraries) can give a preliminary indication of overseas markets for......

...EXPORT STRATEGIES AVAILABLE TO FIRMS INTERNATIONALISING This report gives an insight into exporting, its definitions and other international business transactions, it goes on discussing the different strategies available to a firm internationalizing for the first time, and these include both direct and indirect strategies available, and provides examples of firms that use export strategies. It also gives the advantages and disadvantages of such strategies. At the end of the report it provides a conclusion and recommendations to what strategies a firm can adopt depending on the situation. 2.0 INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND The most conventional forms of international business transactions are international trade and investment. International trade refers to an exchange of products and services across borders. Exchange can be through exporting, importing or countertrade. Exporting is an entry strategy involving the sale of products and services to customers located abroad from the home base or third country. Importing is the buying of products abroad and bringing them to the home market. Countertrade is a business transaction where all or partial payments are made in kind rather than cash. Both finished and intermediate goods, such as raw materials and components are subject to trade. While on the other hand international investment refers to the transfer of assets to another country, or acquisition of assets in that country through foreign direct investment and contractual...

Export and Import Management

...Export and Import Management I. Research for Exports When entering a culturally and linguistically different part of the world, managers need to understand a completely new way of commercial thinking that is based on a different culture and works on a different set of premises. The first step is to use available secondary data to research potential markets. The identification of an appropriate overseas market involves the following criteria: * Socioeconomic characteristics (e.g., demographic, economic, geographic, and climatic characteristics) * Political and legal characteristics * Consumer variables (e.g., lifestyle, preferences, culture, taste, purchase behavior, and purchase frequency) * Financial conditions On the basis of these criteria, an exporter can form an idea of the market segments in a foreign market. II. Export Market Segment There would be geographical and psychographic segments in many different countries to which the firm can export the same core product it sells in domestic markets without any significant changes. Products that can be standardized could satisfy basic needs that do not vary with climate, economic conditions, or culture. A standardized product is the easiest to sell abroad logistically because the firm incurs no additional manufacturing costs and is able to use the same promotional messages across different regions in different countries across the world. Where it is not possible to sell standardized products, the firm......

...reports, individual interviews, and company websites. 57 The solar thermal industry appears to be significantly integrated across the value chain. Many developers conduct their own R&D to create unique, patented concentrating solar technologies. Concurrently, CSP developers often manufacture the patented components, build the power plant, and operate it. The planned Ivanpah Solar Power Complex is a good example. BrightSource Energy owns Luz II, one of the early CSP technology design and manufacturing companies, and Luz II will manufacture the CSP technology while BrightSource oversees the development, operation, and management of the plant. BrightSource will then sell the power produced to Pacific Gas & Electric. The U.S. Department of Energy also partners with a number of power plant owners and operators to help improve plant operation and management and develop better plant technology (Blair, 2008). CSP plant construction requires commodity type materials (steel and concrete), and many companies contract out the manufacturing of non-patented components. Even when the developer of a U.S.-based CSP plant is an international company, the United States can expect significant job growth from plant construction and ongoing operations. There are two assembly sites: the first, which can be anywhere in the world, produces easily transportable components. The second, where larger components are assembled, must be near the plant to minimize transportation costs. This implies......

While 2XU, has already established itself as a global firm, the company needs to continue its expansion into new markets, if it is to achieve is goal of $1 billion of sales within the next 10 to 15 years. Therefore it must be asked, is 2XU is ready to begin exporting to a new market? Export readiness measures how prepared a firm is to conduct its business within a new export market.

Working Paper No. 121 onwards can be downloaded from the site. All rights are reserved.

A preliminary analysis of the spatial determinants of firms’ export activities by Indian states has been undertaken in this study. The size of technological knowledge stock, port facilities and credit availability in a state are observed to be favouring higher export intensity of local firms. All these call for state’s policy attention to improve regional knowledge base, strengthening of port facilities or ensuring better transportation networks to ports and improved credit availability if local firms were to face the least hurdles in their efforts to internationalize. Fiscal incentives continue to promote firms’ export activities. In addition, firms own characteristics considerably determine their export......

...Duty Exemption and Drawback Background[1] The Duty Exemption and Drawback facility enables exporters and deemed exporters to claim, within 6 months of exports, the duties and taxes paid on raw materials used in the export process. Apart from imported raw materials, businesses are entitled to duty exemption and drawback on taxes paid on utilities and, in some case, on the fuel consumed in the production process. Eligible exporters can claim their drawback by filing their claim with the Duty Exemption and Drawback Office (DEDO), which is an agency under the authority of the National Board of Revenue. The Customs Act, 1969 and the VAT Act 1991 governs the process. While Chapter VI of the Customs Act 1969 provides many of the guidelines, since the promulgation of the VAT Act 1991, drawback can also be claimed on inputs under Section 13, Rules 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 32(a), 33 and 34. Additional SROs that guide the process include SRO 154 (June 9, 2005) and SRO 157 (June 9, 2005). Eligible exporters can enjoy this facility under two broad categories – a duty exemption or a duty drawback. Under the duty drawback system, exporters get refunds of the duties and indirect taxes they have paid on imported inputs. Duty may be refunded in three ways: a) actual drawback, b) national drawback, and c) flat rate drawback. Due to fewer complications and ease of operation, the flat rate system remains the most preferred method of refund. There are also two other ways of making......
