Using Tesco (http://www.tescoplc.com/) as a case study:

1. Identify a potential target market for Tesco’s future international expansion strategy. (This means that you must not choose a market already served by Tesco; doing so will result in failing this assignment).

2. Identify the macro-environmental characteristics of this market.
3. Critically analyse the key strategic issues the firm faces in expanding into this market (opportunities and threats in the firm’s external environment plus strengths and weaknesses in the firm’s internal environment).
4. Recommend actions to be taken to ensure that this strategic international expansion is a success for the firm.

You are strongly advised to structure your report in the same order as the assignment tasks set out above.
Remember to include a list of references used at the end of the report (presented Harvard style).
