incoterms 2010. If trade is in the country, there may be nothing specifically governing the detailed terms of delivery of goods such as foreign trade. In foreign trade, Incoterms are one of the keys or solutions in order to anticipate misunderstandings between exporters and importers in arranging the responsibility of both to deliver or deliver goods according to agreements based on international trade terms and laws. 7. Level of competition When talking about competition or both competitors, it is clear that foreign trade has a higher level of competition because it involves traders and buyers from various countries. Right or right? For example, for example Indonesia is a country with a trading company of around 5.7 million, so when it comes to domestic competition, we only compete with 5.7 million companies and only have a domestic scale. However, if foreign trade we have to compete with trading companies from 195 other countries and also companies in their own country of 5.7 million. So that the burden of competition to compete internationally will also be increasingly difficult. 8. Transportation costs The difference in transportation costs is due to distance and trade administration. If the scale of domestic or domestic goods can be sent by land cargo so that transportation or transportation costs are relatively cheaper and also vulnerable there is never a tax levy. When compared to trade on a foreign or global scale, automatically the distance traveled is further and the transportation costs are relatively more expensive and there is the possibility of being taxed on goods entering the destination country.

9. Face to face The difference between domestic and foreign trade then from face to face. Domestic trade is easier to reach face to face to make agreements on sales or other matters. Actually for foreign trade we can also face to face directly using video call technology or other things, or come directly to the destination country, but it is not as easy as domestic trade. 10. Packaging or packaging One difference is also seen from the packaging. Products to be sold abroad usually have special and good packaging standards. The aim is to avoid damage given the distance traveled and the time taken far and long enough. In addition, sometimes it is the case in foreign trade, when using packaging made from wood, then we have to carry out container fumigation or packaging itself to avoid damage to goods caused by pests or termites and return (return) from the destination country. E. International Business Environment International business is different from domestic business, because international business must deal with the forces of three environments: a) Domestic environment is all uncontrollable forces originating from the country of origin which surrounds and influences the life and development of the company. b) Foreign Environments are all uncontrollable forces sourced from outside the country of origin that envelop and affect the life and development of the company. c) International environment is the interaction between the forces of the domestic environment and foreign environment.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
