Choose a country in Asia (e.g., Japan) and a country in South America (e.g., Brazil) where the mentor company you identified in your Week 2 – Global Marketing Plan Part 1 assignment currently has a presence.
Explain what similarities and differences you see in the product and/or brand between the two countries using Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, cultural perceptions, and strategic alternatives in global marketing. Not all of the companies have a branch in those regions. In that case, discuss the implications of moving to an Asian county and/or a South American country should your mentor marketer decides to expand there using Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, cultural perceptions, and strategic alternatives in global marketing.
Your initial discussion post should be 250 words. Cite your textbook and any other sources used to support your ideas.
