4. One bibliography/reference list, which should be in Harvard format and should cover the whole submission.
You are the board of directors of a manufacturing company, Green Battery Technology Systems (GBTS Plc), based in the United Kingdom. Your company manufactures batteries used in the manufacture of various types of electric cars. You supply a number of major car producers worldwide, exporting to Germany, China, and the United States. In January 2015 (a year ago), GBTS set up a joint venture with Beijing Battery Power Technology (BBPT), a relatively small battery producer in China, to develop a new lighter and faster charging lithium battery. The research and development has been done in a small factory near Beijing, with staff supplied equally from GBTS and BBPT. The new battery is now ready for production, and could be produced in either China or the UK, or both, for sale worldwide. Marketing plans and production facilities are under discussion.
You have also recently been contacted by a Russian government trade official, who has suggested that tax breaks and other incentives could be available for manufacture of electric cars in Russia, and has offered to broker talks with a Russian car manufacturer which might be interested in developing this market. You could either enter into a supplier agreement with the Russian manufacturer, or a joint venture to manufacture batteries actually in Russia, in which case bigger incentives could be available.
