    I really enjoyed the presentation and found Mimi to be highly knowledgeable about the UN. This presentation has given me a better sense of how foreign businesses have to take into account not only the industry they are involved within, but one has to look in-depth into the country they are going to do business in; ranging from the relations that country has with the United States, how the country is doing financially, and how one can help that country advance in to being financially stable or economically stronger.
