This may lead local firms to follow the multinationals to other markets or even replace other suppliers in multinationals subsidiaries in other countries (OECD, 2002). The OECD (2002) study refers to the trade associations that multinationals are generally prominent members, as important sources to pass knowledge about the world market, because they are a center for exchange of relevant experiences. It also says that in response to requests from multinationals, local authorities can create infrastructures (particularly transportation infrastructures) that will benefit international trade and local firms that also will use them successfully in their internationalization. This fact is evidenced by Gunaydin and Tatoglu (2005) which indicate that these consequences of FDI facilitate the distribution of raw materials that exist in the host country. Additionally, Ford (2008) assert that multinationals tend to include their suppliers in international networks to which they belong, so that local firms are involved in global trade by establishing relations with other international entities (Ford,
Riley in his International Tracking Survey Report’03 titled “E-Government vs. E-Governance” says that Governance is a set of continuous processes and could be assumed to developed slowly with use rather than change dramatically (say with a change of government). Riley peruses Kettl’s observation that "Governance" is a way of describing the links between government and its broader environment – political, social, and administrative. Each of these dimensions forms a side of the "governance triangle" and emphasizes that Governance being distinct from government; it concerns longer-term processes rather than immediate decisions. He elaborates three categories of these processes to cover interactions between the government, the public service, and the citizenry. The engagement process covers the interaction between citizens and government; the consultation process covers the interaction between public servants and citizens; and the implementation process covers the interaction between the government and the public service.
It is undeniable that globalization has generally played an important role in the world economy as it has been supposed to enhance global economic growth by free trade, as well as solve some deep-seated issues like poverty and unemployment, which was analyzed in the previous reflections. Despite the fact that open markets have been expanded, many firms must still follow local rules and regulations of the countries in which they are operating. In other words, this fact highlights that the importance of understanding the political context should be treated as a key to any companies’ success. Political risks are defined as the impact of politics on markets by all factors that may politically stabilize or destabilize a country, such as taxes, trade
Countries like Nigeria, Columbia, and Indonesia are prime examples, where these financial institutions, invested in organizations responsible for environmental degracion and destruction.

The lowering of import tariffs and the destruction of borders, will contribute to work creatively, permitting people to move more freely between nations, and provides smaller companies to expand their brand as well as products into the global market. Another result of bilateral trade, is more cost effective resources and materials, that could be accessed together with an inexpensive yet educated workforce. A clear example of this might be when China opened its market to the rest of the world in 1990?s, allowing for countries such as the United States and Europe to consider
Globalization refers to the widening set of interdependent relationships among people from different parts of a world that happens to be divided into nations. The term sometimes refers to the elimination of barriers to international movements of goods, services, capital, technology, and people that influence the integration of world economies (John D.Daniels, 2015). Although integrating a global economy is nothing new, but the modern implications in global business are stranger and bigger than ever before (Gemma, 2014). Thus, globalization can brings up some beneficial for the world in every aspects. However, globalization also brings up some negative effect on the business around the world.
It is the importance of the shareholders that they can directly affect the governance. A corporation includes the legal entity that must be separate from the owners. The corporation has the right that it can easily enter into the contracts, hire the employees in the company,
A governance board is the governing body of an organization which makes crucial and strategic decisions on serious issues relating to the organization with the intention to have a lasting impact on the organization (Weill, 2004). On the other hand, a good and effective IT governance is one that manage IT resources and use IT to attain enterprise wide performance goals (Weill, 2004). According to Weill, IT governance can be defined as, ‘‘a framework which has been specifically designed with the right to make decision and be accountable for it outcomes to encourage desirable behaviour in an organization in IT usage’’ (Weill, 2004, p.2). Furthermore, IT governance should be considered as an integral component of any corporate governance because
Corporate Governance as stated in the statement above, function as agents of shareholders, within the corporate governance ecosystem. Shareholders who exercise their rights as shareholders, directly influenced the boards, can ensure responsible actions by companies. Gatekeepers and influencers, insinuated between the shareholders and company, play an important role in promoting self and market discipline, hence in reducing the need for regulatory discipline. Last but not least, private and public enforcement have an important role in ensuring that corporate governance are held accountable through actions by the regulators parties. Proactive actions by the various parties is crucial and this reinforces the corporate governance culture and ultimately
In the other hand, if we see it in the sense that global institutions will become more prominent as time goes, because of the real need of global governance existing nowadays, mainly in some regions of the world, and the lack of some central guide that should rule and lead how most global problems and conflicts raised up from the wide variety of interests generated by the economic globalization would be solved we can in fact agree with the statement. The world exists nowadays as a “global village”, the fact is that countries are more and more interdependent in every activity they develop, mainly due to the economic globalisation the world is passing through, therefore it is created the incentive for states to cooperate more if conditions for that are proportionated, if that cooperation doesn’t exist some problems can arise and evolve into serious conflicts. This is one main role of globalisation of world politics, the capacity to maintain the good relation between worldwide
As Lawrence Finkelstein argues, “we say ‘governance’ because we don’t really know what to call what is going on,” and that “‘Global Governance’ appears to be virtually anything”. Without effective international collaboration, effective global governance cannot be realised and this international unity is a means to encourage mutual interests and values and to lessen the susceptibilities created by increased interdependence, besides being a demonstration of international camaraderie. Many international organizations like the UN, European Union (EU), African Union (AU), World Trade Organization (WTO), and Amnesty International amongst others, were established to achieve
