You will formulate a business plan proposal for starting a business (distribution services) in in your chosen country(Singapore). Your plan should be logically derived from the country analysis (I have attached .docx file ) and it should be organized per the format below:

2- Business Model Proposal (derived logically from the country analysis) with details of the proposal (business model, how you are going to make money, value proposition of your product offering, quantitative and qualitative benefits of the project, entry mode, trade barriers, financing decisions, etc.).
3- SWOT Analysis based on your country analysis and the business you are planning to start.
4- Strategic Plan with a 3-5 year sequential implementation plan.
5- Projected 10-Year Cash Flow Analysis including investment and Return on Investment (ROI) target with cash flows brought back to present dollars. Use a discount rate of 10%. Also pick at least 1 parameter (e.g., volume, price, etc.) and show a sensitivity analysis.
6- Issues, Risks, Contingency Plans and Metrics Identify and describe what issues and associated business risks may arise from starting this business in your chosen country. Briefly describe contingency plans to address these. Also include what metrics should be assessed to understand whether the business is achieving plan and how often they should be assessed.

The document should be no more than 10 pages – The title page, reference pages and charts/graphs/tables pages are not included (counted) in the 10-page count.
