The proposed international business venture will be a luxury retail sunglasses operation in the Bahamas, called Sun & Shade, Inc. It will be a foreign wholly owned subsidiary of a U.S. corporation. The Bahamas provides an ideal location for a luxury sunglasses business for a variety of reasons, including having a stable economic and political environment, a readily definable target market and customer base, and the inherent benefits to selling sunglasses in a Caribbean climate.As an international business, Sun & Shade, Inc. will need to consider numerous factors in its business planning and development.

From the point of view of the CEO, the director of HR should be at least equal to the CFO.” Since Sun & Shade, Inc. [...]
[...] GLOBALIZATION As an international business, Sun & Shade, Inc. will be affected by global macroeconomic forces, including fluctuations in currency values. Relative to the euro and other currencies, the value of the U.S. dollar has declined substantially over the past few years. Currently, the value of the U.S. dollar relative to the euro is at an all-time low. Since the value of the Bahamian dollar is pegged to the U.S. dollar, fluctuations in currency values could affect Sun & Shade, Inc.’s business. [...]
