Barriers in Global Business When a business decides to be global, it will face to face many risks.

Social and Cultural Barriers; people of the world have different beliefs, attitudes, values, languages. What is considered right for a person in one nation may not be welcomed by others in different nations.
Man – Made / Artifical Barriers Manmade barriers are artifical barriers to prevent international trading. Because of different reasons, countries create different obstacles to prevent their economy. There are mainly two types of artifical barriers. These are; Economical Barriers Political and Legal Barriers
Economical Barriers Tariffs: Customs taxes, duties or charges on imported goods are called tariffs. Tariffs make the imports more expensive for local customers and usually lead them to purchase less expensive domestix products. Trade restrictions: These are non –tariff barriers that restrict imports by setting adminstrative regulations and rules.
Quotas: they restrict the amount of the particular important commodities into a country for a specific period of time. Limits may be put on quatities and value. Embargo: Stopping trade with a particular country. Custom administrative regulations: In this barrier, setting unnecessary and irrational bureaucratic rules for imported products.
Political and Legal Barriers Governments may also restrict the free international trade by creating difficulties in entry regulations for some countries, while facilitating the same for others. A company should investigate the legal structure of a country where it wants to enter. It will never enter the country which does not accepts international law and decisions of international courts
