  • Description: Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: In recent years, China and India have become two of the most important markets in terms of sales, low-cost manufacturing and R&D operations. The future progress will increase the competitive advantage for both countries and attract MNC s from all over the world to invest. Nevertheless, success is not guaranteed, even with the large business opportunities that China and India provide. A MNC has to be aware of various challenges that both countries pose, such as government interventions, underdeveloped infrastructures or copyright violations. Hence, MNC s need efficient strategies in order to compete and improve their position in these markets.

Moreover, this dissertation will only provide a general overview as the business environment of MNC s in each market will differ.
