@Mr. Roques,

"Do they evaluate if its possible to install a local industry or just stay away from that market?"

Being an emerging economy, Brazil will certainly encourage foreign investors to   install or back local companies. Question is whether it is profitable for foreigners to do business in the country. The outcome may depends on the kind of industry you invest in.

What can companies do with countries like Brazil, that protect the local industry with very high taxes for imports? Do they evaluate if its possible to install a local industry or just stay away from that market?

I read an article recently about the rejuvination of the trans siberian railway and the building of the Land Bridge railway through Kazakhstan.  This oil and gas rich country is pumping billions into infrastructure projects to make land only routes viable from China to Europe.  It could be one to watch.

@Tom, i think you covered most of the risks in global technology shipping but other risks could be labor strikes, clear instructions or understanding between the shipping parties and complicated customer service. If the company has international presence then it make sense to have a local shipping office as it makes supply chain much easier. The local office can cater wide range of customer services and demands.

Custom clearance could be one of the major reasons behind the delays in shipments. It is very important to make sure the shipping company has all the partners required for faster clearance in legal manner.

Shipping through myriad customs systems sounds like a nightmare. When you add to that the risks of natural disasters (or just a bad storm), political risks, and a shifting market, I think it underscores the reasons to watch these concerns.  I wonder what othe risks our readers watch for?  Please offer your thoughts in a comment.
