We are now in the era of globalization wherein organizations are able to influence the market conditions on an international scale. To be able to stand on a global platform,organizations have become extremely dependent on foreign nations for many reasons.

Ergo,it may face the need to import certain parts like batteries to cut down the manufacturing costs and outsource certain processes like the manufacturing of engines.
