Excellent example of government intervention into an industry. Great chance for analysis also, think about how the economy should grow after this investment.

A great vote of confidence for the UK. There are many motives for Hitachi moving to the UK, you show identify these. This is a continuation of the Bombardier story previously shown.

 

The UK being a member of the EU also has a benefit for Hitachi, this move is good for the economy and might help attract other rivals.

Mr Billinghurst-Bright's curator insight, January 21, 2014 7:44 AM

Arcadia and Philip Green have been slow to set up Topshop stores in China and has preferred to expand into America instead. Have they been too slow to take advantage of the economic growth in this emerging market? Have they missed the first mover advantage? They appear to have much less of a long-term view compared to rivals like H&M and Zara.

The yearly budget – a must read for all A2 students. This is simple to read and kindly split up into different industries. Videos to watch also. The Conservatives are attempting to get the economy growing again, which main changes to fiscal policy do that?

Can you spot any changes that they are using to gain voters in a certain age group? Bingo tax?

JCB boss takes a dig against 'unscrupulous' firms in China - Telegraph

JCB boss takes a dig against 'unscrupulous' firms in China - Telegraph | BUSS 4 | Scoop.it
The chairman of JCB has called for Government action on "unscrupulous Far Eastern" companies that have "copied" and "ruthlessly exploited" the intellectual property belonging to British companies.

Mr Billinghurst-Bright's curator insight, January 21, 2014 7:52 AM

One of the major threats of operating in China is the copying of intellectual property belonging to British companies. Many companies like JCB and Dyson complain about the lack of enforcement of patents, appropriate sanctions and punishment on Chinese firms involved in this practice. In some industries it is very common and firms are investing in R&D only to see their ideas exploited and other firms profiting from it.

Explaination of Tesco's decision to sell its Chinese business into a new joint venture with CRE. Left with a 20% stake and had to invest £300m+ into the JV; but at least it limits Tesco's losses in China.

Mr Jones's curator insight, January 29, 2014 6:43 AM

Why has it taken Tesco 10 year to refine its strategy? What advantages do they hope for from the new approach? Who paid who in the creation of this new joint venture?

 

tutor2u's insight:

A nice short summary here of Tesco's decision to sell its Chinese business into a new joint venture with CRE. Left with a 20% stake and had to invest £300m+ into the JV; but at least it limits Tesco's losses in China and enables it to focus attention back here in the UK.
