Political System (list this title)


Introduction (paragraph)

Describe the key points of the governmental structure of your country using the details you collect from below. Include what potential impact this has on doing business in your country. For example, some countries are much more heavily unionized than the United States. Often this is evident in the political parties that exist. Heavy unionization may mean highly skilled labor but it could also mean expensive labor and difficult negotiations for doing manufacturing because of laws resulting from the political activity of such groups.
