Discuss the impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19) on international trade for ONE of the countries listed below: UK India China USA Japan

‘’COVID-19 is uprooting economic globalization’’ (WEF, 2020). Discuss the impact of the novel  coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19) on international trade for ONE of the countries listed below:    UK  India  China  USA  Japan    Discuss the economic implications of Covid-19 for this country, including: trade relations with main  trading partners, FDI inflows and outflows and the country’s economic growth forecast. Drawing on  the economic principles covered in this module, assess how the country has responded to the health  pandemic with their economic policies I.e. examples of supply-side and/or demand-side economic  policies.    Aspects to consider:    1. Introduction: what is globalisation and define some of the terms that will be included in your  essay. Start off with the global perspective by providing an appraisal of the current global  internal trade situation and global FDI flows I.e. that international trade has contracted with  FDI projected to contract by 40% this year (WEF, 2020)  2. Then move in from a global view to a national view, to include macroeconomic data for your  country of choice (e.g. national unemployment rates, GDP trends etc.) and start to explore  how Covid-19 has impacted that county’s economy and trade (how have supply chains been  disrupted?). How has the country responded – I.e. supply side and or demand side economic  policies?  3. Bring in a detailed example (either a company or industry example) to support the points  you are making to provide practical insights    4. Finally, what are the overall implications – is that country rethinking its international trade  strategy to reduce their vulnerability to the global economic shock? What is the longer-term  outlook for globalisation? Add critical analysis into these discussions.  5. Conclusion – summarise your essay and the main points that have been addressed – do not  add anything new in your conclusion section  6. References – as a guide, aim for 1 reference per 100 words, so approx. 20 references for this  whole essay.    *please focus your discussion on the economy and trade given that this is an assessment for your  international strategic management module. Please do not use up your valuable word count going  into depth about the health implications of the coronavirus pandemic – instead keep it focused on  the business-side.    Assessment criteria:    ï‚· Demonstrate a critical understanding of a range of theories of international production  ï‚· An ability to apply a number of perspectives in your critical evaluation of implications  ï‚· Evidence of extensive reading  ï‚· An ability to structure a coherent, critical argument  ï‚· Accurate use of the Harvard Referencing system.  Level 7 assessments (e.g.  Postgraduate taught  programmes) Band    Numerical  equivalent Grade band Indicative language    Exceptional Distinction 100    Creative, insightful, illuminating, inspiring, exciting,    authoritative, challenging Very High Distinction 94  High Distinction 87  Mid Distinction 80 Persuasive, sophisticated, original, reflective, ambitious,  meticulous, critical, convincing, unexpected Low Distinction 74  High Merit 68    Fluent, thorough, analytical, precise, rigorous, confident,  consistent, thoughtful    Mid Merit 65  Low Merit 62  High Pass 58  Satisfactory, clear, accurate, careful, congruent, coherent Mid Pass 55  Low Pass 52  Min Pass / Capped Mark 50 Sufficient, adequate, descriptive, limited  Marginal Fail 45*    Mid+ Fail 42  Mid Fail 40    Fail    35 Incomplete, inadequate, inconsistent, derivative,    contradictory, superficial, irrelevant  30 Erroneous/wrong, missing, extremely limited,  inappropriate, insufficient, incoherent, unstructured 25  10 Lacking, formless, detrimental    Non-submission 0 Absent/none
