Indonesia remain so due to their economic agreements which

Indonesia as
compared to Greece:Political:Indonesia is
democratic and therefore there should be little difference in leadership methods,
however Indonesia has also has a vice president and they are both elected every
5 years. Also, the president has a cabinet which is the members of are
appointed by the votes of the public.Indonesia is an independent country however it was a vassal
of japan until 17th of August 1945. Since then it celebrates its
Independence Day on that day.The country has been politically stable for quite some time
and should remain so due to their economic agreements which heavily rely on it.Tesco will have to ensure that they do not offend the
political leaders by using the incorrect terms. Tesco will have to be aware of
who the president is and who the vice president is, then ensure that they do
not offend the political standing of the country as well as determine how
stable the political standing is, since the president changes every 5 years it
can cause quite a lot of problems and risk to the country’s standing during the
elections. As compared to Greece which has a Prime Minister which is
the head of the country and a multi-party system. The president hold no real
power as the Prime Minister hold executive position. The public has created a
lot of instability due to their disapproval of the government’s actions and it
is difficult for them to settle this matter. Tesco would have to consider these when attempting to enter
the market as very little stability can be promised by the government in the
current state of matters.Both Indonesia and Greece are not so different as they both
have elected leaders and are democratic, however there is a lot more
instability in Greece as compared to Indonesia.Economical:Indonesia is a developing country and it is currently
working on increasing their GDP, this has been done through government spending
equal to 23.5%. This in turn has brought an 6.1% improvement in GPD growth.
Indonesia has $92.62 billion in revenue and $98.88 billion in expenses.Indonesia possesses
reserves of crude oil and natural gas and is 8th in the world in
exporting it.GDP makeup:·        
48.1% from industry·        
14.4% from agriculture·        
37.5% from service sector In 2016, Indonesia exported $140B and imported $132B,
resulting in a positive trade balance of $8.07B. In 2016 the GDP of Indonesia
was $932B and its GDP per capita was $11.6k.Imports:Products mainly imported: chemicals, fuels, equipment,
machinery and foodstuff.These goods are usually imported from: China, Japan, South
Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and US.Exports:The major exports are oil and gas, electrical appliances,
rubber, textiles, and plywood to countries like India, Malaysia, China, Japan,
Singapore, US and South Korea. However, the top profitable exports of Indonesia
are Palm Oil ($14.4B), Coal Briquettes ($11.9B), Petroleum Gas ($6.22B), Crude
Petroleum ($4.93B) and Jewellery ($3.97B).The top most profitable export destinations of Indonesia are
China ($16.8B), the United States ($16.2B), Japan ($16.1B), Singapore ($11.2B)
and India ($10.1B). The top import origins are China ($32.1B), Singapore
($25.8B), Japan ($11.3B), Malaysia ($6.67B) and South Korea ($6.61B).Indonesia borders
Malaysia, Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea by land and Christmas Island, India,
the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia and Palau by sea.Currency:Symbol: RpInflation: 3.83 %, February 2017Central bank: Bank IndonesiaRarely used: Rp. 1000ISO 4217 code: IDR1 US Dollar equals 13520.00 Indonesian RupiahUnemployment rate: 5.5% Tesco will have to work in the Indonesian Rupiah currency
which can be very difficult and therefore it should be prepared to do so as the
currency exchange will be a major factor in calculating profits. Furthermore, the
country appears to have good economic stability and Tesco wouldn’t be taking
much risks in doing so. As compared to
Greece which has had the GDP of $194.559 billion per annum it is a much lower
value, however the country has a lower inflation rate of only 1.0%. And with a $26,800
GPD per capita it would appear as if the individuals are richer than in
Indonesia. Greece however has 0% GPD growth rate and an unemployment rate of 23.6%
which is much higher than the one Indonesia.In which case Tesco will have to consider the market instability,
as it is a much smaller market there is little to be gained from it and Tesco
will probably need to adjust not to waste money to saturate a market that has
little potential.   *Social:Indonesia has a very
large population which is steadily increasing with the ratio of 1.13%. The
country has a good average life expectancy which is over 70 years of age and
most of its residents live in urban areas. Mostly the residents are involved in
agriculture and industry. The government has recently prioritised its education
due to its outstanding literacy rate of 90.4%. 3.4% of the GDP is spent on
education. The Government possesses its own public schools and colleges as well
as universities.Majority of the population is Muslim, then Protestants,
Roman Catholic and Hindus. Tesco would have to
adjust their stores to be able to fit more people as people in Indonesia like
to take their time shopping and there is a lot of them. This means that more
space for people should be allocated. As compared to Greece which do not put as much pressure om
personal space as most countries do, it would be a difficult point of entry as
most business dealings in Greece are based on personal relations, this means
that Tesco might struggle to find suppliers to begin with and that the beginning
might be difficult, however Greeks are easier to build customer relations and
this should be prioritised.*Technological:Indonesia has
developed their own transport system with roads, ports and airports, railways
and water ways are the main way to go to other parts and islands of the country.
As it is located in the ocean. This country has developed its communication system and numerous
new brands of smart phones are available there. People prefer to use landline and
cell phones but they also use the internet. There is a very small crime rate. They
have their 54 TV channels in which 11 are national TV networks and some are in
the private sector.Tesco will have very
little to no barriers to entry from the technological standpoint as Indonesia
has many if not all of the currently modern technology, this allows Tesco to
even purchase it there as many are made locally.
Greeks also have access to modern technology and are utilising
them for their use however, the economic problems which Greece is currently
facing had a very negative impact on the growth of the use of technology and
the country is currently struggling to keep up with the newest technology available.Tesco will have to import some of the newest technology if
it is necessary which could increase the costs but besides that there is a lot
of potential to utilise technology and especially use it for marketing purposes. *Legal:Indonesia has introduced new rules and regulations in the
country. New labour laws are introduced. These laws show the 7 hours workdays
and 40 hours workweeks. When labour works for 4 consecutive hours, then 30
minutes break is permitted to them. The government also introduced the company
law and every business has a legal entity and they have directors and
commissioners. The government announced the environmental law and the Municipal
Noise Reduction plan is underway to change the noise limits in the residential
areas, hospitals, schools and religious places. In the business sector, the tax
system is introduced with various changes the tax, on first 25 million is 10%
and on next 25 million, its rate is 15% and next 50 million, the rate of tax is
30%. The income tax is applied to the businesses and on the individuals. *Environmental:The geographical location of the country is very interesting
as this country is mostly comprised of thousands of the islands and it is
located between Indian and Pacific Oceans. It is hot and humid country and the
weather condition is about mild and moist round the year. More than six hundred
languages are spoken in this country and it has over 1100 dialects.It is composed or rain forest and mangrove swamp and has
some snow-capped mountains. It is 7 hours ahead of GMT and 16 hours ahead from
US. There are many active volcanoes and they burst from time to time, which can
create natural disaster in the country. The earthquake of 9.0 magnitudes caused
the tsunami in the country in 2004 and it claimed 155,000 lives. It also faces
the deforestation, massive forest fire and soil erosion and the volcanoes
spread devastation in the areas, which it is broken out. The forest fire
affected the timber industry badly and it caused heavy loss to the country. *Ethical:Religious beliefs of the Muslim religion are the ethical
aspects of the country as it is their dominant religion, however others are
dictated by the Roman-Dutch law structure that the country has inherited. Section two: Language:Indonesia is a country with over 300 native languages and
more than 600 are spoken there however the top three languages spoken in the
country are Indonesian, Javanese and Sundanese.*Customs:Indonesian law forbids visitors from bringing weapons,
illegal drugs or pornography into the country.  
Penalties can be severe and include death for weapons or drugs. Alcohol
in excess of 1 litre per person 18 years or over is also forbidden to be
imported.Electronic goods and photographic equipment must be declared
to Customs upon entry and must be re-exported.This is all due to their beliefs as they do not wish to be
exposed to the outside world’s problems.*Values:·        
Belief in the one and only God.·        
Just and civilised humanity.·        
The unity of Indonesia.·        
Democracy guided by the wisdom of deliberations
among representatives.·        
Social justice for all the people of Indonesia.*Attitudes:The individual’s standing is purely based on birth and the
family to which one belongs to, the hierarchy in the country is based on your
family’s status and the links that the family creates with other families that
define your title and place. The whole of the Indonesian society is a web of
such family obligations to one another.Their attitude to woman is rather poor due to the religious
beliefs women are seen as less equal to men. However, they are allowed to work.Religion:In Indonesia, the Muslim religion holds absolute power and
must be followed at all times, it has more power than the government and
therefore if the religious figures demand it laws and pretty much anything else
can be abolished by it.*Manners:In public showing Bluntness is rude, loudness is vulgar, and
aggressiveness is bad manners. As well as saying “No” is seen as an aggressive
response so avoiding that direct negative approach is very important as Indonesians
are sensitive to nuances of speech and expression.Time is of little meaning as the country takes everything
slowly and nothing is to be hasted as it is seen as vulgar to do so. Foreigners are welcome but might attract a lot of curiosity
and attention when outside of common tourist locations. In most of Indonesia,
what to wear is largely determined by the Muslim code of dress. In general
terms, this means that most of the body should be covered. Clothing should not
be tight fitting or revealing. In practical terms, shorts may be worn by
children, bather, and for sport, but not in the street. In private you can wear
what you like and in tourist areas and beach resorts scanty clothing is
accepted.In Indonesia taking pictures of rituals or individuals can
be viewed as mockery and should be avoided. Education:The government has introduced a variety of religious schools
and colleges as well as some universities, they are all allowing both men and
women to attend however the education provided is purely religion based and
includes languages, however attending certain courses by women and men can be
viewed as outrageous and can cause conflict if done so. Women are still
disadvantaged as they are mainly only allowed to study religion and anything
else is very gender biased as well as their education level is lowered as
compared to what the men are learning.Material Culture:The culture is based on the Muslim religion and the word of
religious figures means more than any law. This means that any cultural aspects
of the country are of the religious type.Institutions:Indonesia has many religious institutions however they have
very little of any other types, as there is very little crime in the country it
is not common to see any law enforcement, they also have fully modern fire
departments all over the country and a few hospitals however they are modern
and very spacious.Infrastructure:The country has a very large amount of ports, however it is
mainly islands and roads can be difficult to find outside of the populated
areas. Airports are also quite common as due to the structure of the country
and the many islands that it is made out of, it is impossible to use trains or
land transport alone to transport any goods outside the country.Work Attitudes:

Both women and men are allowed to work, however women are
not allowed to hold any important roles and time is of no essence in the
workplace as everything is delayed for religious and cultural purposes which
are one and the same.
