Your company manufactures batteries used in the manufacture of various types of electric cars. You supply a number of major car producers worldwide, exporting to Germany, China, and the United States. In January 2015 (a year ago), GBTS set up a joint venture with Beijing Battery Power Technology (BBPT), a relatively small battery producer in China, to develop a new lighter and faster charging lithium battery. The research and development has been done in a small factory near Beijing, with staff supplied equally from GBTS and BBPT. The new battery is now ready for production, and could be produced in either China or the UK, or both, for sale worldwide. Marketing plans and production facilities are under discussion.You have also recently been contacted by a Russian government trade official, who has suggested that tax breaks and other incentives could be available for manufacture of electric cars in Russia, and has offered to broker talks with a Russian car manufacturer which might be interested in developing this market. You could either enter into a supplier agreement with the Russian manufacturer, or a joint venture to manufacture batteries actually in Russia, in which case bigger incentives could be available.FormatAll work should be word processed in 12 point font Arial and double spaced.Please use the following file format: Word.Please ensure that you provide the following details on the first page of your coursework:• Student Number• Module Name and Number• Word CountPlease also ensure that your student number is shown clearly on your individual contribution.Referencing:Please ensure you adhere to the principles of good academic practice and ensure you use the Harvard system to reference your work.
