It means that if the company goes with concentrated strategy, it will take advantage of low tariff rates, thus there will be low trade barriers and it will be easier to export the product to other countries. It will be much cheaper than constructing a manufacturing plant.The product the company is manufacturing is microprocessor which means that it has high value-to-weight ratio: they are expensive but don't weigh very much. Thus even if the product is shipped halfway around the world, its transportation cost will be negligible compared to the total costs.Now that we have decided which manufacturing strategy the company should adopt, we need to evaluate possible location options where it would be the best to construct a manufacturing plant. When deciding on location we should look at these things:The very first thing to consider is whether the country has highly skilled work force since ABC Company is producing microprocessors, they need highly skilled labor.What are the differences in political economyWhether that country is politically stableForeign exchange rate fluctuationsWhat are the factor costsWhether the country has location externalitiesWhat are the differences in cultureWhat are the trade barriersAfter answering these questions and analyzing potential country locations, we should choose a country which:Is politically stable, has highly skilled workforce, has low trade barriers, has relatively low factor costs, where political economy is in favorable condition, , and exchange rates are not volatile.
