Doing business in a foreign country? Planning a visit to evaluate business opportunities or starting a new contract?

The likelihood is that the politics of the country will impact on your work. If you are trying to set up a new business venture or partnership, your work will be affected by regulations, laws and ministerial decrees.

Elections can change policies, new governments can overturn previous decisions, populist ideas may be introduced to gain favour with the voters. All these can have a major impact on the traveller working in the country.
