Article: APEC leaders condemn North Korea nuke test
I.

Summary
In light of North Korea’s efforts in creating and testing its nuclear weapons,
APEC leaders namely the United States, China, Japan, Russia, and South Korea have met to discuss the proper and legal course of action to address the alarming situation. Condemning the nation’s activities under the leadership of Kim Jong-Il, these world leaders have employed different strategies and have given their own thought in attacking the issue. The APEC Summit has also resulted to a stance of support and desired effort towards the abolishment of barriers to free trade and free flow of goods among APEC members. The summit also tackled the US-lead proposal on cross-Pacific free trade zone which has been agreed to be looked into while subjects such as pandemics and post-disaster contingency plans found support and action as well.
II.

Applicable laws
A. Sovereignty and Sovereign Immunity
This law can be applied because it directly concerns the country itself 
 whether or not it can have access to nuclear energy.
B. International Jurisdiction
It is possible to apply this law in this case since the dispute involves an 
 international dimension with parties of different nationalities. It helps in 
 laying down the criteria for determining the country whose courts will have
 jurisdiction in this case.
C. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (1977)
Seeing the sensitivity of these tackled issues and its effects on each 
 participating nations’ and globe’s economy is enormous, the possibility of 
 bribery and coercion skyrockets which why observance of this act should 
 be enforced as it also briefly touches on a nation’s right to act with 
 sovereignty void of coercion and bribery.

The tariff database project was initiated by the Australian Customs Service in 1994 in response to the APEC Ministers' need for a common source of information explaining the various countries' customs requirements and tariffs. However, in 1995, the APEC Tariff Database Task Force concluded that because of the requirement for an accessible source of data, the information should be located on a World Wide Web site The APEC Tariff Database is the only source of consolidated tariff and customs-related information on the 18 member economies of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation. It is an extraordinary example of inter-governmental and private sector co-operation and is a large step towards furthering APEC's objective of trade liberalization.

...Reaction for the APEC SUMMIT 2015: The hosting of APEC Summit 2015 is really a great idea. Since it talks about the Economical topics, like Investing in Human Capital Development, Fostering Small and Medium Enterprises, etc., each country will be help with their own economic problems. Maybe if I am one of the presidents there which has an issue going on with my own country and the other, I have be feeling awkward but it is good that nothing bad happened. Each presidents of each country participated nicely. They forget about the issues going on between them. There have been some problems regarding traffic and security. Since our participants will be the president, especially the Summit held here in the Philippines, of course we need to secure each of them for their own safety. If something bad happens to them, what will each country say to the Philippines, right? So they have given high security for the Summit.

...APEC- The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) is a regional economic forum established in 1989 to leverage the growing interdependence of the Asia-Pacific. APEC's 21 members aim to create greater prosperity for the people of the region by promoting balanced, inclusive, sustainable, innovative and secure growth and by accelerating regional economic integration. GLOBALIZATION- The worldwide movement toward economic, financial, trade, and communications integration. Globalization implies the opening of local and nationalistic perspectives to a broader outlook of an interconnected and interdependent world with free transfer of capital, goods, and services across national frontiers. However, it does not include unhindered movement of labor and, as suggested by some economists, may hurt smaller or fragile economies if applied indiscriminately. ECONOMICS- Economics is the study of the production and consumption of goods and the transfer of wealth to produce and obtain those goods. Economics explains how people interact within markets to get what they want or accomplish certain goals. Since economics is a driving force of human interaction, studying it often reveals why people and governments behave in particular ways. OPEN BORDERS- An open border is a border that enables free movement of people between different jurisdictions with limited or no restrictions on movement. A border may be an open border due to intentional legislation allowing free movement of people across...

It was established in 1989 in response to the growing interdependence of Asia-Pacific economies and the advent of regional trade blocs in other parts of the world; to fears that highly industrialised Japan (a member of G8) would come to dominate economic activity in the Asia-Pacific region; and to establish new markets for agricultural products and raw materials beyond Europe.[2] An annual APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting is attended by the heads of government of all APEC members except Taiwan (which is represented by a ministerial-level official under the name Chinese Taipei as economic leader[3]). The location of the meeting rotates annually among the member economies, and a famous tradition, followed for most (but not all) summits, involves the attending leaders dressing in a national costume of the host country. APEC’s original purpose was to promote free trade throughout the Asia-Pacific region. The founders were also motivated by three other factors. First, there was a felt need to respond to the advent of regional blocs, especially the European Common Market (ECM) in other parts of the world. Second, the rise of the ECM meant that former British Commonwealth countries – like......

FPL Group was then engaged in a number of businesses unrelated to its core electric skills, including insurance and financial services, real estate, cable television, and agriculture. The company's principal subsidiary, Florida Power and Light, was considered a well-managed utility with an emphasis on quality. However, the utility's spiraling costs had resulted in electric rates among the highest in the Southeast. Today, FPL Group is nationally known as a high quality, efficient, and customer-driven organization focused on energy-related products and services. With a......

...high levels of corruption, bribery, and intellectual property theft; safeguards are required to do business in China. The cultural, ethical, and human rights standards also provide the most risk. The Chinese airline did offer cultural know-how and relationships to VIH if a deal is made, but the low ethical and human rights standards are moral values that are difficult to work around. The third part of the analysis was determining the pros and cons to market entry in each country. Australia offers the lowest risk, has similarities to Canada in all four risk categories making business dealings easier. The acquisition would allow for VIH to mix what they do best with what HNZ does best Barriers to entry are reduced with acquisitions and the APEC trade agreement. The economy is also stable due to the resource boom Australia is experiencing. The cons associated to Australia are the two strong competitors in the market, the common law system requires meticulous precision for contracts, and a carbon tax is going to be introduced. The US also has similar systems and values to Canadians, and VIH already operates in the market so expanding wouldn’t require research or knowledge on competitors, clients, or the culture. Expanding in the US is also likely to be the smallest financial investment out of the three options. The cons related to the US are the poor economic system, an agitated political state, and increased wait time for drilling permits which will slow down expansion.......
