    Deliverable Length:



    For many global companies, China represents a very attractive
market in terms of size and growth rate. Yet, it ranks lower in
terms of economic freedom and higher in political risk than
other country markets because it has a communist
government. Despite these risks, there are hundreds of
companies that have established manufacturing operations in
China. This is due in large part to the Chinese government
making sales in China contingent on a company's willingness
to locate production there. The government wants Chinese
companies to learn modern management skills from non-
Chinese companies and acquire technology. Some observers
believe that when Western companies agree to such
conditions, they are bargaining away important industry
knowledge in exchange for sales today.

    1. Should Boeing and other companies go along with
       China's terms? Defend and support your answer.
    2. Should they risk losing sales by refusing to transfer
       technology?
