Discuss your Country of Specialty (COS):
You will be using your COS often during this semester. You can use your COS analysis in this DB and in your A1. Introduce your COS using the instructions below. Your discussion should be valuable to global marketing managers (your target audience). Focus on discussing scientific information that is relevant to “all” your classmates. Your country of specialty cannot be the USA, or Taiwan. More than one student may choose the same COS, independently.
Here are the sections that you should address in your COS discussion:
1.3 Introduction and background of your COS

2.4 COS Technology (2 points)
Your COS cannot be USA, or Taiwan.
