We tend to associate the developing countries with poverty and suffering. This image is reinforced by the media because they inform us only about disasters in these countries and present their people as victims of circumstances beyond their control. The reality of the developing world is a lot more varied and complex. In the first place, one has to be careful with generalizations.

For example, the situation in recently industrialized countries like Korea, Malaysia, China, Mexico, and Brazil is very different to the Less Developed Countries like Bangladesh, Senegal, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nicaragua, El Salvador, or Peru. Besides, the situation in the developing World is not static.

In the last decades, countries in South-east Asia have gone through significant progress in their standard of living, while countries from the Sub-Saharan Africa are poorer nowadays than they were in the middle of the 1960s.

The socio-cultural context of each developing country has prime importance in the sale of a product. Religion, local traditions, history, superstitions, all these form part of a system of values that are called culture.

The obtaining permits or licences and establishing a business process in a developing country can be as long as it is costly. Much of the Government earnings come from such licences. The trouble of corruption can also present itself.

Increasingly, the social balance of a company, demands new management parameters of CORPORATE GOVERNANCE that can convert the companies into real engines of development and well-being in the place they are operating.

Multinational Organizations like the EU, the Inter-American Development Bank, the African Development Bank, and the IMF, amongst others, direct significant quantities of economic resources towards social and Economic restructuring in the developing countries, so that in this way they can speed up growth. Therefore, one is transferring “know-how” towards countries in need for this knowledge.

The considerations that should be taken into account before productive Foreign direct investment (FDI) surpass commercial decisions.
