Nowadays the world is changing. Even if someone don’t want, there is anything to do. The world is becoming more and more globalized, and you have to choose if you want to adapt yourself to this new world, or don’t adapt, but, if you don’t adapt, you will lost good opportunities. Also in the companies, everything is changing.

There are thousands of small and medium-size enterprises that are selling and buying in the global market. Companies with different kind of jobs and sizes, are already acquiring and establishing in the world, opening subsidiaries, outsourcing, offshoring and doing alliances in many countries.
