    Oh sorry, I can't really help then. Perhaps I could give u some generalised statements which u could get a mark for.
    Reason for location:
    - middle of it's main market
    - good road network - easy transportation of goods
    - near to a city, providing a large workforce
    Problems:
    - faces competition

    Sorry I can't be anymore specific, I don't know the case study!

    Have you not got a textbook with that specific example in it? I can't see why it has to be so particular unless that specific Panasonic eg is specified in your syllabus. Which syllabus do you do?

    Well maybe they have changed the syllabus since then, so the chances are u don't need to know that specific area's case study now otherwise ur teacher would have taught u it! Don't worry anyway cos u get a choice of questions, so just don't pick that one!

    Well my teacher insisted on me doing about the kensai region and electronics (panasonic)

    But could I use a transnational company such as Mazda or Ford to answer that question do you think?

    As long as the manufacturing bit was out of Europe AND you have enough info on the 3 aspects you have to answer
