Aasia bibi Case
According to a statement (1), Aasia Bibi claims that On June 8, 2009 she was working on a farm with her 3 Muslim co-workers. There a Muslim lady refused to drink water touched by a Christian. This led to a discussion on the religious beliefs of two communities. Following this, a number of hot exchanges took place between her and the Muslim women. After 8 days, Qari Muhammad Salim, a local maulvi, using three Muslim women as witnesses, lodged an FIR against her that she has committed Blasphemy. She was arrested on this basis. Qari Salim, told a CNN reporter that “Her death sentence was one of the happiest moments of his life. Tears of joy poured from my eyes".
The opinions of public have been divided on Aasia’s case. Some believes that she has actually committed blasphemy by insulting the Prophet. While some believes that the case was filed under pressure from influential local people, and is based on settling personal scores. (2)
Amongst the catalogue of violations to her basic human rights, a matter of grave concern is Aasia Bibi’s lack of access to legal representation. During the initial investigation conducted by SP Muhammad Amin Bokhari, she was deprived of following Basic Human Rights,
• She begged for a pardon several times as she did not understand the nature of her offence or what constitutes blasphemy.
• At no stage, was her crime explained to her.
• She had no access to a lawyer or any form of legal counsel during her long ordeal in jail.
• She has also stated that she was asked to put her thumbprint on documents she knew nothing about in court and no one was deputed by the court to explain the contents of these documents to her.
• A radical Maulvi in Peshawar's old mosque offered a 5 lac rupee reward to anyone who will kill Bibi.

...4: Beyond Tokyo: Disney’s Expansion in Asia 1. What cultural challenges are posed by Disney’s expansion into Asia? How are these different from those in Europe? Answer: With its large population, and relatively low number of theme parks, Asia is a tremendously attractive location for Disney. Already, the company has been successful in Tokyo. While its park in Hong Kong has been less profitable, the company believes that further expansion into the region is worthwhile. However, the company faces a number of cultural challenges that must be overcome. Certainly language poses a problem for the company. At Hong Kong Disneyland, the company has chosen to be trilingual for example. In addition to dealing with language differences, Disney must also tailor other components to meet the local needs. The Hong Kong location includes more covered space to allow people to enjoy the park without dealing with the region’s rainy weather, special gardens for picture taking that appeal to the preferences of tourists visiting the park have been created, and the menu has been adapted to local preferences. Plans for the Shanghai location will incorporate Chinese cultural features as well as more traditional Disney themes. 2. How do cultural variables influence the location choice of theme parks around the world? Answer: Disney’s parks first and foremost promote Disney characters and themes. Visitors to the parks want to experience the Magical Kingdom. In Asia, Disney has encouraged acceptance and......

...eliminating waste found in Toyota’s Japanese, North American and European facilities. What other risk factors are present with the management of a regionally constructed and globally linked production structure? First, all production does not have to rely on components sourced, which is expensive. Second, operating in emerging economies can also bring associated risks, particularly with regard to disruption of the supply chain. Moreover, Toyota’s in East Asia has emerged from the necessity of dealing with the complex nature of the regional division of labor and of a need for better coordination of supply chains and parts complementation under AFTA. 3. Given Toyota’s close coordination of the value chain, in particular its relations with component suppliers, and commitment to localization, is this a model that other automakers can emulate? I think other automakers can draw on this successful case. There are many developing countries can be component suppliers of the world, especially in South America, Africa and South Asia. Once the company gets suppliers, it can promote their cars not only in its own country but also in the other places of the world. The whole world gets closer than before, and more and more people speak the same language- English. Committing to localization is not tough nowadays....

Second, Fernandes, a Malaysian Indian of Portuguese Malaccan descent – obviously not a Bumiputra2 - was able to thrive as an entrepreneur in an environment where the government gave top priority to Bumiputra entrepreneurs.

...challenges and threats, to ensure the organisation’s competitive advantage is maintained (David, 2009). The PESTEL framework illustrates a comprehensive list of influences on the success and failures of an organisation’s business strategies. By analysing the Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Environmental and Legal aspects of the macro environment, managers will be able to draw the relevant implications of these influences on the organisation (Johnson, Scholes & Whittington, 2008). The PESTEL framework for the airlines industry within the ASEAN region will be discussed in greater detail in the upcoming paragraphs. The political influence on the aviation industry is instrumental towards the growth of the airline, specifically, in the Asia-Pacific and the ASEAN region. Government support for national carriers and minimal restrictions on migration is pertinent for the growth of an airline. Additionally, security controls should always be maintained to reflect the integrity of the airline. On the economic front, the increasing regional urbanisation is expected to lead the development of new urban centres, creating new destinations for regional travel. The increasing economic growth rates of the ASEAN region would propel the aviation industry to greater heights.

...Porter Five Forces of Air Asia Porter’s Five Forces Threat of new Entrants Threat of new entry is moderate, because it requires high capital to support and government barrier is high such as the air service agreement can build barriers to those new entrants. The degree of barriers to entry depends on the strength of:- • Customers have a little bit of brand loyalty. If customers of AirAsia do not have brand loyalty, then the threat of new entrants will be very high. But the higher numbers of competitors in the industry also will decrease AirAsia’s customer loyalty. Due to most of the travelers prefer low cost. New competitors which want to come in the industry need to spend a little to compete with AirAsia. • Higher Capital Requirement The airline industry needs large volume of start-up capital. The cost of setting up of offices, buying or leasing air craft, hiring pilots and others staffs like air stewardess and etc incur a high start-up cost. So that, the threat if AirAsia is low. • Offered different product AirAsia offer different product to compare with other competitors in Asia, for example, Bangkok Airways, Tiger Airways, and Air Philippines. • Government Legislation Air Asia very difficult gets a new route from government because Malaysian Airlines System (MAS) has been protected by Malaysia government on the route to Sydney and Seoul Incheon.

...Brief Description Bangladesh is a developing country in South Asia that is bordered by India to its west, north and east. It has a population of over 160 million people and is the world's eighth-most populous country. Around one-third of Bangladeshis live in urban areas, including Dhaka which is the capital and largest city. Bangladesh is also one of the world's poorest countries (approximately 31.5 per cent of the population lives below the poverty line). An innovative legal situation that Bangladesh had implemented was the Draconian Law which was approved by the Parliament on October 28th, 1992. This law was specifically for students over the age of fifteen who had committed the act of cheating on their exams. This law had a significant impact politically, socially, and economically. Political Aspect From a political point of view, the government not only implemented strict laws and regulations regarding this matter but, had also invested funds to advertise and warn students the consequences they could face if they were caught cheating on their exam. In addition, the government had arranged media campaigns to aware everyone about this law. There were also cases, where unions working for the opposition political party had helped students cheat to get their support during political elections. Social Aspect This law would definitely impact the society as organizations hiring new graduates for opportunities would be aware that students are competent and qualified for...

...Air Asia: The World’s Lowest Cost Airline Air Asia is a Malaysia-based low cost airline which builds its business on the LLC model created by Southwest airlines in the U.S. Air Asia’s mission statement is to be the Asia's leading low fare no frills airline and first to introduce "ticketless" traveling. Now Everyone Can Fly clearly describes Air Asia’s value. Cost advantages created by Air Asia through operational effectiveness and efficiency go directly to the customers. The customers now enjoy much more surplus than before as the fare falls dramatically and Air Asia captures some of the ‘dead weight losses’ by capturing segments of customers that previously cannot afford the airlines’ fare. The cost drivers in the industry are scale, technology, product and process design, input costs, and capacity utilization. The nature of the operational structure of low cost carriers provides them with initial cost advantages. This lean cost structure translates itself into high turnaround time, basic amenities, standard operating procedures and a lean distribution system To maintain a low flight fare, Air Asia uses many sources of cost advantages. First one should be economies of scale. In many activities, increases in output do not require proportionate increases in input. This can be applied to the airline industry. Air Asia offers a single class, which allows more seats per plane. As mentioned in the case, the Boeing 737 can be equipped 12 more seats per plane in the single class...

(Lin 2012, Treichel 2012, p.3) “We will argue that global imbalances were the result of the large excess demand in the U.S. over an extended period—the financing of which was made possible by the reserve currency status of the US dollar. “This excess demand resulted from both the public debt” and “the overconsumption by households.” (Lin 2012, Treichel 2012, p.3) “As shock waves of the global financial crisis (GFC) reached East Asia in autumn 2008 immediately after the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September, the region faced the task of evaluating and reassessing the economic cooperation efforts of the previous ten years” (Katada 2011, p.274) Thus by evaluating and reassessing the economic cooperation of those previous ten years East Asia was able to maintain its flexibility during the Global Financial Crisis. The aim/purpose of this assignment is to show how the Asian economies have performed during and after the Global Financial Crisis, in relation to the structural transformation, in the role of the state/government, businesses, labour relations and regional integration, that took place as a result of the Asian Financial Crisis. This Assignment will start by explaining the first structural transformation, the role of the state/government, by Creating and promoting manufacturing industries, and limiting......
