You are required to select any HK or HK based company of your choice and
critically analyze the global business environment (i.e. PESTEL analysis) for this
company intending to go global.
You should have a brief description of the company background as the
introduction of your essay.
The company you select is not necessarily registered in Hong Kong. If a
company’s central management or headquarter is based in Hong Kong, we can
say this company is a HK based company.
The company you select should NOT be a global company already. Having
business in China or Macau is fine, because Hong Kong and Macau are now
parts of China.
It should be a company that is contemplating of going global, but you don’t need
to prove it. You just assume it.
The purpose of the analysis is to find out whether the global business
environment is suitable for the company to go global or not and whether it
should expand into the whole world simultaneously, or into one particular region
only or one particular country only.
Technology companies tend to be more born global. You may look at the
directory of the companies in the Science Park or Cyberport. Consumer or food
products are more subject to the social/cultural dimension of the global business
environment. You need to carefully examine what kind of goods and/or services
the company provides. It will affect the decision whether the company should
expand its business into the whole world simultaneously, or just expand into one
particular region or into one particular country only.
Your analysis should be based on the multi-layered PESTEL model.
If your company is just going to expand into one country, you just need to
conduct your PESTEL analysis at country level.
If your company is going to expand into one region only, you need to
conduct your PESTEL analysis at regional level.
If your company is going to expand into the whole world simultaneously,
you need to conduct your PESTEL analysis at world level.
At the end of your essay, you should have a conclusion. In your conclusion, you
can also discuss which mode of internationalization is most suitable in your case.
