    So I thought I create a thread, for June 2014 BUSS4 Research. How does everyone find the topic?
    Here is the Material

    Research Theme – Developments in emerging markets: China
    Your research should focus on businesses from outside of China in relation to their selling to,
    buying from and producing in China, as well as their entering into ventures with other businesses in
    China or competing in their own domestic markets with Chinese businesses.

    In your research on China you should consider:
    ● the extent to which China creates opportunities and threats for businesses
    ● the risks and rewards involved in trading with or operating in China
    ● the factors affecting the success or failure of businesses trading with or operating in China
    ● the relative advantages and disadvantages of the ways in which businesses might operate in the
    Chinese market (eg exporting, joint ventures, mergers or setting up production or sales outlets)
    ● the ethical and environmental issues involved in trading with or operating in China
    ● how business strategy might be affected by developments in China.

    You are strongly recommended to:
    ● compare and contrast the experience of different businesses
    ● be aware of recent trends in key economic and demographic data for China such as national
    income, income per person, wage costs, exchange rates and population trends
    ● be aware of the relative significance of trading with or operating in China for different businesses.

    You should make reference to your research in your responses to Section A in the examination

    Hey, thanks for creating this tread, was thinking of making one myself but I guess you beat me to it. Anyway, we have just been informed about the topic. Our teacher was stressing about how extremely 'wide' this topic is! Worst thing is that we have not even finished BUSS3 yet... How you feeling about it?

    I'm not fantastic at Business but I think an example for this bullet point would be linking companies like Apple to stuff like this - http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-26363067, since it's an environmental issue, sweatshops for companies like Nike are also ethical issues.
