The events of 11 September 2001 and subsequently have brought into sharp focus the risks to businesses and employees in international markets. The risks are not confined to the actions of a few fanatical terroists. They encompass a range of activity arising from different cultures and attitudes. They stem from the willingness or otherwise of governments to strengthen weaknesses in policing, judicial systems and anti-terrorism and to stamp out organized crime, corruption, unfair trading, cronyism, bureaucracy and civil unrest. All these things exist to some degree in every country of the world.
