2. Meeting and recognizing the opportunity.
International business development considerations must be as dynamic and flexible as our rapidly changing world. Managers of small-to-mid-sized business must be able to understand, and more importantly, recognize new opportunities and employ flexible approaches to the global market. Consumers in overseas client markets have the same needs as those in the United States. In the 1990s, there will be more demands upon business to include local content in products supplied in client nation. America is no longer the only place in the world to do business. You must think about the rest of the world if you are to survive and profit.
3. The foreign trade deficit continues to be a drain on the United States. For the first eight months of 1989, the deficit averaged $9.2 billion. Of that amount, imports of foreign oil amounted to 43 percent (or approximately $4 billion). Our appetite for foreign-made products and overseas oil continues to place a burden on the United States economy. If the American public would encourage congress and the president to pass legislation favorable to domestic oil production it would have a major impact on reducing the foreign trade deficit.
