Question:

The Renault-Nissan alliance, established in March 1999, is the first industrial and commercial partnership of its kind involving a French and a Japanese company.

Visit the Renault-Nissan website at http://www. renault.com to see where factories reside for each car group. Compare and contrast the similarities and differences in these markets. Then answer these three questions:
(1) How do you think cultural differences affect the way the firm operates in South Africa and in the United States?
