Building an international private enterprise collaborative capability calls for shifting the focus from administering transactions toward managing relationships with trusted partners.
Having led multiple international private and public sector development and trade ventures between developed and emerging nations, this blogger’s forty year career has found logistics to be an all encompassing challenge in the acceptance and movement of products internationally. The most difficult intersections are deal making, getting the product developed, evaluated, and accepted for in-country purposes, international finance and contracting, transportation, on-site installation / start-up, and on-going long-term sustainability. These and a multitude of details need to be addressed continuously throughout the process.
