14 What Does It Mean? -We do not see issues in the future dealing with the Australian government -The country has the proper infrastructure and resources needed -With consecutively growing economy with diverse ethnicities we see Australia as a logical destination to move our company

15 Comparative Advantage

16 Comparative Advantage
Almost 40% of the workforce holding a tertiary qualification or advanced diploma The first choice education destination within the Asian region Rich in natural resources Female population is increasing to 50.2% of the total High level of disposal income An opening trade market 10th in the country of ease of doing business

17 Market Structure Monopolistic Competition Limited barriers to entry Large competition from Australian drug store’s

18 Social Trends We increasingly rely on use of skin product Awareness of healthy skin and body care Women’s inherent love for beauty Environment: air pollution, low water quality Daily life: bad habits, fast pace of life, stressful

19 Corporate Social Responsibility
4 pillars Workplace: safe, healthy,supportive, discrimination-free environment Marketplace: setting out the same ethical expectation with business partners, offering the products of best quality

20 Corporate Social Responsibility
Environment: energy-efficiency, reduce waste and greenhouse gas emission Community: develop programs with organization’s that are relevant to local community needs ( beach cleanup, gardening for the community )

21 Porter’s 5 Forces

22 Australian Beauty & Health Industry
Modest growth of 2% in 2013 Consumers seek products with multiple benefits Mass resurgence in drugstores Price promotions and discounting Australian households spent 8 billion on beauty and 10.5 billion on personal health care in 2012

23 Competitor Priceline pharmacy A health and beauty retailer of cosmetics, skincare, haircare and healthcare products - Over 330 Priceline brand stores throughout Australia. - Has over 4 million memberships, making it one of the largest health and beauty retail loyalty programs in Australia.

24 Opportunities & Threats
Potential customer base among Asian females (own their brand loyalty) Professional sellers speaking different languages Unique products Lower prices Lack of popularity among locals

25 Bargaining power - Suppliers have little bargaining power : a large batch of demand for stores all over the world (economies of scale) - Customers have high bargaining power: large competition in Australian industry

26 Self-developed Products
Products owned by Watsons and manufactured in Mainland China (low cost) Issue: transportation cost Solution: already have warehouses in Southern Asia: Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, much closer and cost much cheaper transportation fee

27 Transnational Strategy

28 Entry Method Greenfield Late mover in Australia health and beauty industry Scale of entry Strategic commitment

29 Action Plan One store in each city Find out customer preference Build warehouses Adding more stores over time Using similar marketing strategy we did in other countries Market position: localization

30 Risks Involved -Variability of Australian currency -Competition from large multinationals in industry -Low brand awareness from residents not of Asian heritage -Do not yet know consumer preferences
