Can anyone help this homework? This is a country project, and mine is Greece. There are 4 sections and total 8 pages or less with 1.5-spaced. All the information is in the attached file. 

Country Paper. Use this outline to prepare your country report, but also refer to the FDI environmental analysis framework as you compile and analyze data on the country. Number your subheadings 1, 2, 3 etc, and use the following titles for each corresponding section. Remember to carefully footnote the source of each piece of information, including precise web addresses. The grade will depend in part on how carefully all the information is referenced and sources are identified. The grade will also depend on the quality of your data, how well it is organized in your report, and your identification of the source of that data. For instance, if you sourced your data from a report prepared by the World Bank, please state this. Also, provide the full name and year of the report, the pages within the report that you found the data, and, the URL address for that report. Try to organize your data as much as possible into tables with descriptive headings. Any questionable data or specific piece of data that is sourced from a different website or report from the rest of the data in the table should have an asterisk beside it with a footnote explaining where you found it. Appendices should be attached at the end of the report, behind the bibliography or reference page. The executive summary portion of your paper should include a brief summary of your findings, your analysis of this information and conclusions. Section 1 Donor Projects (2pages or less) (Go to the Web pages and describe what the Donors are doing.) (Make a subheading (bold text without a number) for each relevant donor) World Bank IMF USAID Africa Development Bank Asia Development Bank Inter-American Development Bank Other agencies (multi-lateral, national, non-governmental organizations, micro-lenders, private sector donors, private church groups, private foundations, foreign governments, foreign businesses) Section 2 Foreign Investment Inflows and Major Sources of Foreign Investments (2 pages or less) Describe the data on foreign investment that you find. Also look at the country websites and other web sources to see what types of investments have been made, which countries or foreign firms have invested more money into this country, and in what sectors or industries. Discuss some particular major foreign investment projects in the country. (Remember to carefully reference your sources for this information, including precise web addresses)

Discuss the government’s attitude toward foreign direct investments (FDIs), in general. Does the government permit FDIs to be wholly-foreign owned? Or must foreign firms find a local company to partner with and form a joint venture? Section 3 International Finance (2 pages or less) The country’s currency (or adopted currency) and its exchange rate value (relative to the US dollar) Exchange Rate System adopted by government 1. Is it a fixed, managed, or free floating exchange rate system? 2. If the currency is fixed in value, what is it fixed to? A commodity? A currency basket? What currencies are in this basket? Another single currency such as the US dollar or the euro? What is the Government’s policy toward foreign investment inflows. Describe briefly. What is the Government’s policy toward FDI repatriation of profits. Does the government offer tax holidays or incentives to FDI’s? Provide some data in a table or otherwise of the country’s external debt as a fraction of GDP and/ as a fraction of total exports. Discuss what information you can find about who the debt is owed to and what is going on with it. IMF, World Bank, US Aid, Private Banks, HIPC eligible, etc. Section 4 Concluding Comments (two pages or less) (NOTE: I pay close attention to this section of the paper. Comments must reflect a comprehensive assessment of the prior 11 sections.) 1. From the perspective of an economist, describe your optimism or pessimism about the short- and medium-term future of this country. If you were the political leader of this country, what reforms would you propose to remove obstacles to growth and development? And, 2. Keeping in mind the FDI environmental analysis framework, answer the following question: From the perspective of a decision-maker in a US-owned firm, describe the relative risk or attractiveness of this country as an investment location. Why would you invest there or why not? If not, what changes would you like to see happen in this country before you would make a substantial investment there?
