Study the target community
Knowledge on the target community is a must for any business no matter if it is local or global. But when it comes to studying the target community of another country it becomes even more important but a tough task at the same time as it takes a lot of time and effort.

Business process outsourcing
Business process outsourcing has become a new business practice as it is needed to become a successful business globally. In business process outsourcing some tasks connected to the business are outsourced to different countries or different other organizations. The entity to which the process is outsourced work only on contract basis and that will pay less attention to the overall impact of the business placing more weight on the performance of the contract. Therefore although process outsourcing is considered as needed it has been found out that it is not good for the consistency and the long term targets of business. But this risk can be overcome, if the main company takes in to account the nature of the company to which the process is to be outsourced, and study the nature and financial status of the country. For this their annual financial reports, progress reports have to be carefully scrutinized. In case such reports are in a different language those have to be translated. Translation of financial statements cannot get done by merely an ordinary translator as the translation has to be done with a view to explore the financial status of the country and the entity and the knowledge on commerce is needed apart from the language proficiency.
With the increasing environmental pollution activities there is a trend developing to make all commercial and businesses environmental friendly. While many legal and regulatory barriers enforce the corporate responsibility towards environment, most of the companies and businesses are assessed and rated with the level of attention they pay towards environmental concerns.
