Post A

Click on the link to see the Jack Link’s products here (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.). Presume each package costs $1.00.

Link Snack, Inc. needs you to find some information that will help them evaluate the profitability of exporting their products. They need to know the following information:

  1. How Your Country would classify/categorize their product for the purpose of determining import tariffs. (Tariffs may be called other names such as duties or taxes in various countries)
  2. What import tariffs would apply and how much would they be on the product.
  3. As this is a food product, any packaging and labeling requirements there would be.

For each question, they need a brief response by you and a web link to the resource information you used to develop your response. Particularly helpful are web links provided by Your Country.

The following websites may be of assistance:

United States Department of Agriculture – Exporting Products website (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.)

U.S. Country Commercial Guides website (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.) (Select Your Country)

* Your Country trade websites

  1. Review the submissions your peers made in Post A.
  2. Read the article, “What is Counter Trade” at this link(Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.).
  3. Visit the Observatory of Economic Complexity website(Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.). Identify a “lesser known good” that Your Country exports (other than petroleum products).
  4. Your Country wants to countertrade that “lesser known good” you selected for US$100,000 worth of Jack Link’s Beef Jerky. The firm for which you are consulting obviously wants to obtain more than US$100,000 worth of that good. How does Link Snack, Inc. go about determining how much of that “lesser known good” they need to take in exchange? Include information that supports your recommendation.
