TASK 1. Evaluate the following 2 countries to identify which represents the most potentially attractive target market for Aldi’s future international expansion strategy: • Czech Republic • New Zealand In order to evaluate which of these 2 countries represents the most potentially attractive target market, you are required to undertake a comparative PESTEL analysis of those macro-environmental factors of the 2 countries that are relevant to Aldi. This background analysis must be included as an appendix, presented in table format and must be no more than 5 pages in length. • Data should be recent, primarily quantitative and obtained from appropriate sources (e.g. the most recently published World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness report). • A scoring system should be used for each macro-environmental factor/subfactor for each country to show whether each factor / sub-factor is more or less attractive for your company. These scores should then be totalled for each country in order to arrive at an overall scoring of attractiveness for each country.
TASK 2. Discuss the rationale for the selection of your chosen market. Your rationale should be justified with a more detailed discussion of your PESTEL analysis of the macroenvironmental factors of your chosen market that you have presented in the appendix for Task 1. This discussion should explicitly consider the implications of the macro-environmental factors of your chosen market for Aldi. - Worth 20% of the overall mark; 825 words. • This task must be presented in the first section of the main body of your report.
