GSBS6003 Globalisation – Individual case study analysis (30%)

PEST AND FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT

Case Overview – This assignment is intended to give you an opportunity to apply some key concepts from this

course in a real-world context. Specifically, you are required to select a country of your choice (not your

home country), review the country’s PEST and critically discuss the country’s attractiveness or

otherwise for foreign direct investment.

Learning Objectives – This assignment requires you to explore and evaluate the costs and benefits of FDI with

respect to your selected country in particular and host economies in general. It therefore, fulfils broad learning

objectives related to this course. However, the primary learning objective of this assessment task is to appreciate

the macro-economic causes of growth in an economy and the subsequent and/or consequential influence on

FDI. Through an analysis of the political economy in this context, this assessment is also designed to evaluate

your ability to apply your understanding of the political economy and country attractiveness for investment.

Advice – Remember that the political economy stresses that the PEST systems of a country are interdependent;

they interact and influence each other, and in doing so they affect the level of economic well-being. The study of

the PEST highlights the combined effect of factors in assessing the economic wellbeing of a country and

subsequently that country’s attractiveness as a destination for foreign direct investment. In light of this, it is

expected (and even encouraged) that you will overlap and integrate your discussion around the different

components of PEST. You will find that Chapters 6 and 7 in your textbook are an excellent initial source of

information: Hill, CL et al (2019), Global business today: Asia-Pacific Perspective, 5th Edition, McGraw-Hill

Education Australia (you will need to log into the library website with your student ID to access this resource).

Formatting, submission and word count –

• Submit your assignment in size 12 font (Arial or Times New Roman) and 1.5 line spacing.

• You are required to submit this assessment electronically through Turnitin. No hardcopies are required.

• The word count of your case study analysis is 1200 words +/- 10%. You are required to demonstrate

your ability to keep within the recommended range of words while still providing a comprehensive

analysis of the case. If you go above the maximum word count you will be penalised.

• Your reference list should include at least 5 academic references and you should refer to these in the

text of your case study through citations.

Marking Criteria (second column) – the following marking criteria and marking rubric will be utilised when

grading this assessment. A more detailed explanation of these marking criteria will be provided during class.
