ABSTRACT: Businesses all over the world today are extending their frontiers beyond domestic markets. In this global business environment, cross cultural negotiation becomes a common field of research. This is primarily due to the fact that the negotiating parties are often from different countries, with different cultural values and beliefs which they usually bring with them to the negotiating table. What is communicated, how it is communicated, how people think and behave during negotiations can differ across cultures. The purpose of this paper is to examine the effect of culture on negotiation and suggest ways to deal with cross cultural problems in international business negotiations. An analytical approach is applied in this research. The conclusion reached is that effective international negotiators need to know not only the fundamentals of negotiation, but also how culture can influence the negotiator’s behavior and the negotiation agreement. Understanding, accepting and respecting the cultural values of the other parties is very important as it will lead to a more successful outcome.

...Section B: Welspun India Industry Analysis – Textile Industry on Global Scale The global apparel and fashion trade is expected to grow to USD1 trillion by 2020. However with growth slowing down in developed markets, the dynamics of the global fashion market are expected to change dramatically. Emerging economies will fuel most of the growth in the fashion market. Brazil, Russian, India & China (BRIC) along with few other South-East Asian countries are seen as the major growth drivers. In addition to this, global apparel markets in the recent past have shown a paradigm shift, moving towards increased product differentiation, and catering to a diverse, aware, and demanding customer base. Retailers have thus gravitated toward demographic shifts, societal influences, economic influence, and environmental concerns. With growth in developed economics cooling, retailers are facing pressure due to restricted consumer spending. Under such conditions the global apparel value chain has shown a distinct shift both at the front- and supply-end. Recent Global Trends in Textile Sector * Increase in textiles and clothing global trade from US$ 355 billion in 2000 to US$ 602 billion in 2010 * Expected to reach US$ 1 trillion by 2020, CAGR of 5% pa. * China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Thailand, Indonesia are leading suppliers and further expanding their capacities. * Established markets (North America, Western Europe) continue to show traction * Emerging......

In order to move forward, and keep on being a leader in the energy industry, General Electric needs to deal with Green Energy.

...to the sea through the port of Paradeep. Orissa has signed around 45 memoranda of understanding (MoU) for setting up steel capacities aggregating 60 million tonnes within the next few years. Leading the pack is Korean steel giant POSCO which is setting up a 12-mtpa steel plant near Paradeep in Jagatsinghpur. The project will have an integrated steel plant and will also develop infrastructure and iron ore mines. POSCO is also investing in a dedicated railway line from the steel plant to Paradeep port, an ideal point to ship out processed (carbon) steel to its main market, China. Other players who are setting up steel capacities in Orissa include Tata Steel, Jindal Stainless, Jindal Steel & Power, Bhushan Steel, Uttam Galva, Visa Steel and Welspun, among others. According to the Ministry of Steel, the Government of India's target for the steel industry stands at 110 million metric tones by 2019-20, an achievable number if all the MoUs come through. Over 102 MoUs have been signed by different state governments, adding up to 103 million tonnes (MT) in steel capacity and investments of over US$ 5,994 million.
