Project

Students have to prepare a short country profile of one country of the region as a PowerPoint presentation. The presentation should include basic country statistics (total area, population, GDP/head etc.) and then have a focus on the economy: economic development, major industries, major foreign trade partners, foreign direct investment. The format of the presentation is up to the group, but should be guided by the idea of an “investment story”: Why should a firm do business in this country? Devote sufficient time to the design of the presentation - it is a communicative challenge to tell an interesting story about the country in a short time. The objective of this exercise is to give a compact and meaningful description of the country: What is important to know about this country! What would you tell a potential exporter or foreign investor about this economy? Presentation should not be longer than 15 min per country. The presentations will be evaluated by their overall quality (content, format of presentation).
