American and British Cultural Influence 1960s

...British influence on the Australian culture British settlers arrived in Australia in 1788 and the extent of the British influence is still evident today. The British Union Jack features predominantly on our national flag and the Queen is Australia's Head of State. British models also form the basis of Australia's legal and political systems, as well providing our national language. Up until World War II, Britain remained the dominating cultural influence in Australia. Britons also dominated the make-up of Australian society - most of Australia's citizens were either born in Britain, or had British descendants. In the years following the war, British subjects were encouraged to migrate to Australia under an 'assisted package' scheme, which helped with the cost of migrating to Australia and provided housing and employment options upon arrival. Between 1945 and 1972, over one million British migrants settled in Australia. Before 1945, many people, including Australians themselves, considered Australia to be nothing more than a British colony; a nation whose national identity was relatively indistinct from the British. During this period of Australia's history, our modes of entertainment, food, fashion, sporting culture and our social values and attitudes were largely dictated by British culture. American influence on the Australian culture One of the most significant changes to have taken place in Australian society since the end of WWII, however, has been its......

British American Tobacco Investment Strategies: Past 5 Years

...Investment strategy The information provided below have been mainly extracted from the Annual Reports of the five-year period subject to analysis. INTRODUCTION BOOK In the last five years, the tobacco industry has remained fairly stable, with little M&A activity undertaken by the leading industry players. British American Tobacco aims to increase its market share and to become the biggest publicly-listed tobacco company. In pursuing this intention (objective, goal), the company has completed a number of strategic investments and partnerships focused on its future growth. The analysis is conducted on a year-by-year basis, highlighting the most important M&A activities undertaken by the company. 2011 has been an important year for the company: it has completed the acquisition of Productora Tabacalera de Colombia, S.A.S. (Protabaco) in a deal worth £295mil.The main aim of this acquisition was to increase the volumes and profits in the American region. The volumes in that region were down more than 1bn to 142bn due to a contraction of sales in Brazil (mainly due to the high rate of illicit trade of tobacco products) but an increase in sales in Colombia partially offset it and the company’s revenues increased from £3,558mil to £3,742mil (at constant rates of exchange). In addition, this acquisition led to a growth for the Global Drive Brands and Mustang, one of the most popular brand acquired in the acquisition. In the meanwhile, the company established a......
