Where do you consider opportunities lie for international market growth for ELDO? Discuss the possibilities, taking into account
• the market conditions which will create growth for ELDO and its products; you must describe what these will be.
• the geographic regions where such conditions may be found and the regions where they probably are not present.
• market entry/distribution channels that ELDO may use.
