How do I expand my eBay US business internationally?

The world is huge, with more than 193 recognized countries. If you add dozens of colonies and territories controlled by other countries, this number will rapidly grow to more than 200 countries worldwide. For eBay sellers looking to expand internationally, many of them are concerned that customs rules and regulations will differ from country to country. How is an eBay seller familiar with customs regulations in each country? The answer is you can't do it. So, eBay sellers avoid this kind of problem by choosing to make your product available to the global market? Slow and organized international expansion is the only way to make customs rules the buyer's responsibility.

First phase of U.S. seller international expansion

The first step in the process is to change the shipping policy page for the item. A nice feature that eBay offers is that you can choose the specific country where you want to start international repairs. But which country should you choose? Currently, USPS provides services internationally known as "First Class International". The United States Postal Service has increased postage for this service-level category, in some cases doubling postage. However, it allows new eBay International customers to ship 4-ounce packages internationally and receive delivery confirmation scans in selected countries. These are the first countries where you start your new eBay international business.

Activate the following countries:

Canada Australia UK

Netherlands Germany Switzerland

Belgium New Zealand Sweden

Spain Ireland Finland

France Portugal Brazil

Insurance

If you are using an order management system such as Shipstation or Shipworks, they will allow you to purchase insurance for these packages. This will alleviate your concerns about potential fraud and lost packages.

Transportation policy

Make sure to adjust your shipping policy page to reflect the fact that you are servicing the countries listed above. Make sure you choose the correct shipping service and mention that you don't provide combined shipping for international orders. Also, make sure that you indicate that items that are prohibited from entering the country are the buyer's responsibility. The seller is not responsible for items that your customs agency prohibits entry, restricts entry or prevents entry. If you have questions about entry restrictions, please contact your local customs office. The buyer shall be solely responsible for the duties and taxes levied on the goods.

Addressing label system

When expanding into international markets, you want to use an address management system that grows with your business. I always recommend using Endicia.com. Endicia allows you to take advantage of the commercial base prices of domestic parcels and generate labels that comply with international first-level parcels. This will become an important feature as your business grows.

Measure your success

Track how many packages are shipped internationally each day. The main statistics you will measure are as follows:

1] Number of international orders?

2] What percentage of package losses are related to your international orders?

3] What percentage of fraudulent orders?

4] How does it compare to your US business?

5] From which country have you received the most orders?

Phase 2 for international expansion of eBay U.S. sellers [shipping more than 20 packages abroad per day]

As a result, you have entered the first phase of international expansion, and as your business expands, you see some real successes. As a seller, you know that if you can reduce postage internationally, you can further expand your business. How did you do it? You contact a USPS Post Qualified Wholesaler. To find and contact a qualified postal wholesaler, you need to contact your global account manager at USPS.

OK, so you have found a USPS qualified wholesaler and want to know which USPS bulk international mailing plan you should choose? Every eBay seller answers this question differently. In most cases, two options are listed below:

USPS International Priority Air Mail

This is a USPS first-class international mail service provided by Postal Qualified Wholesalers [PQW] to more than 200 countries around the world. In essence, the USPS has outsourced the sorting, shipping, and preparation of the US side required for international distribution. PQW will send your mail to the USPS International Sorting Center [ISC] and the mail will be unsealed and ready for use on the next flight. Because USPS is receiving outgoing mail, your package will not be scanned at the receiving facility, and delivery confirmation scans will not be received in the destination country. The benefit of this service is that in many cases your postage will be halved. You will be able to upload the same tracking number to eBay, but they will not scan the delivery. Now this is where your statistics come in handy. If you have suffered a high percentage of losses during your Phase 1 test, this service is not for you. However, if you experience a percentage of consignable losses, you may want to test this service to optimize postal savings and increase the number of international orders received. If you think you must track these orders, you must use the next service. For additional information on International Priority Airmail, please see my article entitled USPS E-Commerce International Priority Airmail on EzineArticles.com.

USPS Business ePacket

This is a USPS first-class international mail service provided by Post Qualified Wholesalers [PQW] to 15 countries around the world. The main difference between commercial ePacket and international priority airmail is that ePacket will have a delivery confirmation number and it will be scanned and delivered by the receiving post office. The trade-off here is that the service is more expensive than international priority airmail.

Important note

Some important considerations to take in determining international modes of transport

1] Will your business grow beyond the risk of packet loss?

2] How many fraudulent claims have you experienced internationally?

3] Is your product selling price very low, and if the packaging is lost, can it be easily replaced?

4] Are you willing to eliminate the risk of loss by keeping a small portion of postage savings from my insurance?

Drones and their use in government and private agencies

Drones are drones that can fly around and can be used for specific tasks. Drones are used for photography and video from above. Some are used to perform scientific or technical measurements. Some carry weapons and are used as combat tools. There are also some used for shipping goods and mailing between places. Drones are the latest development with tools for installation and repair.

The basic technology of drones includes some kind of power unit, some kind of propulsion mechanism, some kind of steering mechanism, some kind of sensor for recognizing position and path, and a transceiver that sends and receives signals for turning and recording. You can find drones of various shapes on large planes, as well as all kinds of fancy shapes, such as oval airships, disks, triangles, donuts, stars, or can be like big insects or birds.

Small or light drones are usually driven by a propeller, which is connected to a battery-powered electric motor. Stably, more people produce very light drones, powered by solar panels, which can in principle fly for several weeks in the air. Some drones keep the air high through lighters, just like airships, which also allow them to stay in the air for a long time. Larger or heavier drones are powered primarily by some internal combustion engine, such as a piston engine, turboprop, or turbojet.

It is also possible to build nuclear-powered drones that can stay in the air for days or weeks, especially if they are partially manufactured as inflatable airships. Such a nuclear power source need not be a so-called atomic reactor. The energy source can be a special isotope that is intensely radiated to generate enough heat to power the drone. Some of these isotopes mainly emit alpha or beta rays, which can be shielded without the need for heavy armor.

Since the use of most drones is secret, or only publicly announced, it is difficult to fully describe the scope and personnel of drones, but according to official news, news, and scientific articles, people have A pretty clear understanding of the commercials of drone manufacturers and the stories of people's contact with drones in use.

Most drones may have been used by civil administration and property owners for various forms of home surveillance, such as border control, road traffic surveillance, wildfire detection, aerial photography, geographic mapping, pipeline control, grid control, and crowd behavior monitoring. Drones are increasingly used to convey the point of view of sports championships. The use of drones by police to detect and investigate crimes also appears to involve drones directly monitoring private citizens in their homes.

The military has long used drones to monitor foreign territories and theaters. The use of small tactical drones to transport bombs, launch missiles and carry out artillery bombardment is old, but increasingly important. By 2014, such drones had been widely used to monitor terrorist bases, bombard such bases and kill individuals suspected of terrorism. The RQ-4 Global Hauk is a classic surveillance drone for the military and civil service. Northrop Grumman's MQ-8 [A, B, and C] fire reconnaissance aircraft are examples of small reconnaissance drones used in local operations. Ships or land-based formations.

Compared to bombers, larger long-range drones are used to monitor and destroy ground and maritime targets. The most famous examples are the Atomics MQ-1 Predator, the Atomics MQ-9 Reaper capable of carrying heavier weapons and the more advanced stealth jet combat drone Atomics Avenger. The Isreeli Eitan UAV is a large remote surveillance and ground combat drone capable of maintaining high altitude flight for 70 hours.

So far, effective laser guns have been invented. At least in experimental versions, by 2014, drones armed with laser guns may become a reality, but these drones must have a certain size because the laser needs to be powered by a turbine Engine driven large generator.

However, by 2014, the technical control mechanism may not be so advanced that people can already build fully reliable supersonic drones with fighter capabilities. Unmanned supersonic stealth fighters have been built for some time and have been testing for a long time until 2014. Among these Northrop Grumman stealth bombers, the x47B will be deployed in field tests of aircraft carriers by 2014.

British company BAE is developing a stealth supersonic fighter bomber in a project called Taranis. French producer Dessault and other European participants are working on a similar project called nEUROn. Both projects have produced experimental versions that will be tested in 2014. There is speculation that the sixth-generation fighter will be unmanned and can carry people or be used as a drone, depending on the choice. Lockheed Martin's Skunk Factory and Boeing's Phantom Factory are leading developers of US combat vehicles, including drones.

The available information seems to indicate that Lockheed Martin is developing an unmanned fighter that uses the same technology as the F35B stealth, vertical takeoff and landing, and supersonic fighters, and they are also developing hypersonic unmanned reconnaissance aircraft flying at high altitude . . Logically, this supersonic aircraft will also be capable of bombing.

Drones that mimic birds or other small animals have been developed and can be used to spy, shoot, or inject poison into a target. There are rumors that some authorities are already using such drones. There are rumors that even spies and attack drones that are similar in shape and size to insects are being developed. Maybe microtechnology hasn't evolved to the point where such drones can be made, but the physical possibilities of making such drones are there.

The U.S. plans to make airship-powered, solar-powered drones permanently placed above the atmosphere for surveillance. This drone can be lowered to a lower altitude to avoid clouds and patrol a certain area, which is impossible for artificial satellites. But for a long time, high-altitude flying drones powered by nuclear energy may have been operating at high altitude for days or weeks. Some observations of the UFO seemed to point in that direction.

One might ask how often drones are seen flying or being used by 2014. Sometimes people see flying objects that are clearly considered drones. In most cases, it is difficult to determine what you see. By 2014, most UFO reports may have been caused by drones.

Since at least larger drones are comparable to other air vehicles, they have to keep lanterns and other ways to warn of the possibility of a collision, but since government-operated drones often want to keep flight secrets, this is why A lantern-like lantern may only be lit when there is other traffic nearby, or when the operator wishes to make visual contact. This intermittent glow is typical of many classic UFO sightings.

Similarly, drone flight modes used for surveillance and investigation will mimic those seen by subjects in UFO reports: sometimes they fly at different speeds, forewords, sometimes they stop and just hover, and they often change direction They will come from above, do some actions near the ground, and then fly.

Similarly, the light shot by the drone can also be used to illuminate objects that are usually on the ground for image recording, which can also be seen in the classic UFO story. In addition, many drones are shaped like classic UFOs. In addition, drones only emit very little noise, which is also a feature of so-called UFOs.

Island hopping in the Philippines-an exciting experience

If planned correctly, few outdoor activities are more fascinating than island hopping. In this article, I will introduce some guides that will guide you through the maze of island hopping in the Philippines and how you and your partner have a great time. So let's travel to the Philippines and see the possibility of island hopping in the Philippines. You will enjoy a fun-filled scuba diving experience, delicious meals and pristine coral reefs covered with colorful fishes and more.

Island hopping in the Philippines is second to none because the Philippines is an island made up of 7,100 islands in Southeast Asia. What makes the Philippines' island hopping in this paradise even more fascinating is that it will not cost you a hand.

If you are a nature lover, you will enjoy every minute of visits and activities: exquisite white sand beaches, fine and delicious meals and breathtaking scenery. You will also enjoy various water sports: diving, parasailing, surfing, snorkeling and more.

How will you handle 7,100 islands in one country? If you have time, exploring some of them may be the obvious response. Anyway, this might be what you might do on your next trip to the Philippines.

Now that you have decided to hang out in the Philippines, take a piece of paper and write down a plan. Make it real, feasible and flexible. When you venture in foreign territory, make sure to include Plan B in your overall plan, as sometimes ferries are late, aircraft can be delayed, and many other unknown factors caused by Mother Nature.

Time is an important factor to consider in your plan. Let's say you want to hop island in Cebu City, Philippines. It is said that upon arrival from the United States, you will be staying at a hotel in the capital Manila. The flight from Manila to Cebu City takes approximately 45 minutes. With all things in mind, when you arrive in Cebu City Cebu you may need to take a break and start your round-the-island tour the next day. From island to island, you will most likely need a day or more.

During the trip, you will use domestic flights, short-haul Bangas [banana], long-haul ro-ro and longer ferries if needed. On land, you may have to take public transport such as buses, taxis and rental cars, or rent a private car with a driver at a very reasonable price. There are plenty of foods and beverages to suit your needs almost everywhere. These should not be a big problem for you. Make sure you bring your own drinking water or only drink from a sealed water bottle.

In Cebu City, you can plan island hopping at the following destinations: Bohol Island, Mactan Island, Oriental Hotel Negros, Wright, Siquijor, and more. To demonstrate, of these five islands, I will show you how to make island hopping trips to Bohol and Wright only. You can easily do other things based on the first two using the same procedures and principles.

let's continue. Be sure to check your Filipino calendar for your holidays as this may affect your travel. You should pack lightly. Wear comfortable clothes and waterproof shoes. If you have one, carry a lightweight backpack and waterproof camera. Don't rely on ATMs or banks; therefore, you should bring cash or Filipino currency.

On average, you should spend about 1100 Philippine pesos or pesos, or $ 26 per day on island hopping or more, which should include transportation, food and other expenses.

From the capital Manila

You should purchase a two-way ticket at Manila at Nino International Airport. Take a domestic flight from Manila to Cebu International Airport in Lapu-Lapu, Cebu City. You can choose a hotel in Lapu-Lapu. It takes about 45 minutes to fly from Manila to Cebu Mactan International Airport in Lapu Lapu.

The first thing you need to do when you arrive in Cebu is to collect all the information on the ferry schedule: fare, departure date and time, and return time to your destination. Also, if you plan to spend the night at one location, you should book a hotel room in advance. Ask the receptionist at the hotel desk for the required information.

You should decide whether to spend the night at each destination. This is the best way to synchronize your island hopping itinerary. Basically, if you want to visit 3 or 4 islands nearby, you may need to stay at least 4 or 5 nights in Cebu, provided that you do not spend the night on any of the islands.

The first island you may want to visit is Bohol Island. So you take a ferry from Cebu City. At your hotel reception, ask the clerk how to take the ferry to Bohol Island. With this information, the taxi driver will take you to the right jetty to Bohol. Get two tickets. Make sure you check the time and date of your return trip.

You may decide to explore Bohol Island by bus or private car or with a guide. It's up to you. After completing Bohol, you can now decide to continue to Leyte on the same day [possibly in the evening]. Check the ferry schedule from Bohol to Wright to make sure the island tour is going as planned.

In Bohol Province, buy a two-way train ticket from Subay Ubai [Bohol] to Bator [Wright]. Check your ferry ticket to make sure you arrive on time when you return. You may want to hire a guide or private car with driver from Bato in Leyte; this is also a possibility. Nevertheless, tour guides should be the way to go. Because you will arrive at Wright sometime in the evening, you will have to stay there overnight. You will find many hotel accommodations and restaurants to choose from.

You've been exploring Leyte almost all day. Ask the receptionist at the hotel front desk about travel information: city trips, boat trips, etc. If you decide to take part in some water sports, you can rent a boat or board a boat tour. If you want to dive, board the dive boat. In this case, you can rent a snorkel, mask and other gear on the beach. Before doing so, determine if these items are included with your diving travel package.

If you enjoy diving, you might also like the views of pristine coral reefs covered with colorful fish. Perhaps, after a pleasant and exciting dive, you should be ready to take a ferry on your way to Cebu. View your ferry schedule. If you have more time to leave Manila, you may wish to take more island hopping tours in Siquijor, Mactan Island and Negros Oriental. Happy island tour around the Philippines!

How to use the benefits of 141 and 61 helicopter flight training

There has been a long debate about the advantages of part 141 and part 61 training. These differences confuse student pilots, so they cannot determine how to take full advantage of the benefits each pilot offers.

Regardless of whether your train is based on 141 or 61, the following will remain the same: 1] written test. 2] Speaking during the inspection. 3] Check the flight part of the flight. 4] Issue a license.

The measure of success is the same in both types of schools: 1] The mentor determines the success or failure of the school. Knowledgeable and experienced lecturers are key. 2] Drop-out rates are high in some flying schools. Successful schools should have at least 90% of their trainees awarded their contracted certificate and grade. 3] Aircraft maintenance is important. Because the plane is grounded, students should rarely cancel flight classes. 4] The school accident record should be zero or close to zero, which indicates that the school has a high evaluation of your safety.

On the surface, it seems that all helicopter flying schools are very similar. That's why it's so useful to understand the difference between sections 141 and 61. The two biggest differences are: 1] Part 141 training requires a FAA-approved training course outline [TCO]. Part 61 does not require the use of TCO at all. 2] The flight school itself and the chief flight instructor must meet the strict requirements of the FAA. Part 61 is not subject to these FAA requirements.

Let's start with Part 61 Helicopter Training and Flight School. Today, most helicopter flying schools in the United States are 61 flying schools. Many of the 61 helicopter flight schools originally consisted of a certified flight instructor and a helicopter. The flight instructor provides prospective students with one-on-one training and teaches them where they see fit. If the lecturers are good, then more students will join the school, and the owners will buy more helicopters and hire more lecturers to meet demand.

For the 61st Helicopter Flight School, no FAA inspection is required. Flight schools can train students for free using methods of their choice. They should abide by the rules and regulations of FAR / AIM regarding part 61 flight schools and training, but are not subject to inspection by the FAA to confirm that they are doing so.

Part 141 training schools and flight schools must meet very specific requirements and standards. After passing the FAA inspection, the helicopter flight school will obtain an aviation agent certificate. Facilities and aircraft inspected for part 141 training were inspected. The chief flight instructor must conduct an annual inspection with the FAA.

In terms of training, the flight school submits a separate, unique training course outline [TCO] to the FAA for each certificate and / or level they teach in Section 141. For example, a private pilot TCO will be submitted. This includes lesson plans for flight and ground training. If the flight school wants to teach instrumentation grades in accordance with Section 141, it must submit another instrumental TCO.

Don't assume that 141 helicopter flight schools provide all certificates and grades under 141. Many schools receive only FAA private, instrument, and business certificates. It takes a lot of work for the flight school to create a TCO and teach according to Section 141. The FAA requires flight schools to maintain extensive student documentation on Section 141, including very detailed information about student progress. This is great for students. Flight schools are time consuming.

There are some very large flight schools that only offer 141 parts of training. They developed a curriculum and taught many students at the same time. They also developed flight plans. Few large flying schools usually have a high ratio of foreign students to domestic students. This is because SEVIS [Student Exchange Visitor Information System] requires flight schools to obtain a flight school certified by the Federal Aviation Administration [FAA] as part 141 to apply for permission to train international students. The Veterans Association [VA] has the same Article 141 requirements for veterans to use their VA benefits.

Most of the 141 schools also provide 61 courses for the same course. For example, you can choose a private pilot based on the provisions of Part 141 or Part 61. Schools that offer both training methods provide students with maximum flexibility.

Students enrolled in part 141 helicopter flight schools can get all the benefits of attending part 141 schools even if they choose to take part or all of the training according to part 61. This is due to the school being randomized by the FAA. They must always maintain high standards to retain their certification.

The disadvantage of part 141 training is that the TCO must be followed in written order. Each student's learning style is different, and some people like the flexibility of Part 61 training, which allows students to study the teaching materials in an order that suits them.

This brings another advantage to flight schools that offer both part 141 and part 61 training. They will usually use TCO in your Part 61 training. This is very useful for student pilots as you can benefit from a FAA-certified structured training course outline while providing materials in the order that suits you best.

Another advantage of training in a school that offers both types of training is that you can mix and match your training. For example, I want to drive privately under the provisions of Part 61, because I want to be flexible in choosing the course. The structure of the flying instrument is very organized and it is about learning procedures, so I chose to follow the 141 part for instrument training. I found that the structured approach and learning sequence were really effective for my instrument training. I went back to section 61 for business training.

Learning to fly a helicopter is fun, exciting and expensive. Before making a final decision, take a comprehensive look at your helicopter flight school and the courses it offers. Fly safely!

Japan's insurance industry

During the heyday of the 1980s and the first half of the 1990s, like the rest of the Japanese economy, Japan's insurance industry was developing with tremendous strength. The huge amount of premium income and assets formed is sometimes comparable to even the most powerful United States, and domestic investment opportunities are limited, which has led Japanese insurance companies to look outward for investment. Since 1980, the industry has become a major international investor, which has made it popular with analysts worldwide.

The global insurance giant is trying to gain a foothold in the huge market size. However, the restrictive nature of Japanese insurance law led to fierce, and sometimes fierce, negotiations between Washington and Tokyo in the mid-1990s. The bilateral and multilateral agreements reached are in line with Japan's Big Bang financial reform and deregulation.

Based on the results of the 1994 US-Japan insurance negotiations, a series of liberalization and deregulation measures have been implemented since then. But the process of deregulation is very slow, and it is often very selective in protecting the interests and market share of domestic companies. Although Japan's economy is comparable in size to the United States, it clearly lacks the foundation of an effective financial market—sound regulations for a competitive economic environment. And its institutional structure is also different from other developed countries.

In Japan, a unique phenomenon is the kieretsu structure, which is a group of companies with a large number of shares in different industries. As a result, there is no need for shareholder motivation to force the company to adopt the best business strategy. Although initially touted as a model during Japan's boom, the system's vulnerability became too apparent when the economic boom bubble burst in the 1990s. Equally bad for Japan is that it cannot keep up with the pace of software development in the rest of the world. Software has been the engine of world economic growth in the past decade, and countries that are lagging in this area are facing the economic downturn of the 1990s.

Surprisingly, the "New World" economy after the Internet revolution lags far behind Japan, which is the world leader in the "brick and tile" industry. Japan now refers to the 1990s as the "lost decade" of the economy and has lost its luster after three recessions in the past decade. Interest rates fell to historical lows to stop the economy from falling, but to no avail. For an insurance company, its lifeline is the spread of benefits in its investments and has suffered severe damage. Faced with the "negative spread" and the increase in the number of non-performing assets, many large insurance companies went bankrupt. Although Japanese insurance companies have largely avoided the scandals that plagued fellow banking and securities companies, they are currently suffering unprecedented financial difficulties, including catastrophic bankruptcies.

Institutional weakness

The Japanese market is a huge market but consists of just a few companies. Unlike similar companies in the U.S., where approximately 2,000 companies compete fiercely in the life insurance sector, the Japanese market includes only 29 companies classified as domestic companies and a few foreign entities. The same is true for the non-life insurance industry, with 26 domestic companies and 31 foreign companies offering their products. Therefore, when choosing a carrier, consumers have fewer choices than their American counterparts. There are also fewer varieties of products. Japanese life and non-life insurance companies are characterized by "ordinary vanilla" products. This is even more apparent in car insurance, which until recently did not allow the risk of differences to be reflected by gender, driving records, etc. Drivers are divided into three age groups for the sole purpose of determining premiums, and US interest rates have long reflected all of these and other factors.

Needs also vary for different types of products. Japanese insurance products are more focused on savings. Similarly, although many Japanese life insurance companies offer several limited types of variable life insurance policies whose returns reflect the value of the underlying financial assets held by the insurance company, thereby exposing the insured to market risks, Some people choose such a policy. At 100 yen = 1.00 USD, the value of Japan's variable life insurance policies effective as of March 31, 1996 was only USD 7.5 billion, accounting for only 0.08% of all life insurance. In contrast, as of 1995, the effective variable life policy in the United States was worth $ 2.7 trillion, or about 5% of the total, and there were many options, such as variable universal life.

In both industries, Japanese insurance companies have less competition than their American counterparts. In an environment where a small number of companies are offering a limited number of products to newly entered markets that are heavily regulated, implicit price coordination will be expected to limit competition. However, Japanese-specific factors have further reduced competition.

Price competition and the lack of product differentiation mean that an insurance company can acquire a company's business and stay in business indefinitely. American analysts sometimes point out that keiretsu [corporate group] relationships are such an excuse. For example, members of the Mitsubishi Corporation may often wander around to purchase hundreds or thousands of its goods and services. But for non-life insurance, this comparison pricing is futile, as all companies will offer many of the same products at the same price. As a result, a company of the Mitsubishi Group often handed over its business to Tokyo Marine Fire Insurance Co., Ltd., which has been a member of Mitsubishi Keiretsu for decades.

On the surface, life insurance premiums are more flexible. However, the role of government in a part of this industry is also increasing-and in some way influence the pricing of insurance products. In addition to its huge savings system, the country's postal system also operates a postal life insurance system commonly known as Camp. Kampo's transactions take place at thousands of post offices. As of March 1995, according to the calculation of current policies, Camp has 84.1 million unpaid policies, about one per household, accounting for nearly 10% of the life insurance market.

Most of the funds invested in Campo went into a huge fund called a "trust fund", which in turn invested in several government financial institutions and many half-dozen government-related activities such as ports and highways Public Sector. Although the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications is directly responsible for Camp, the Ministry of Finance is responsible for managing the trust fund. So, in theory, the Treasury can have an impact on the returns Campbell can earn and the premiums it might charge.

Kampo has many characteristics that influence its interaction with the private sector. As a government-run institution, it is undoubtedly inefficient, increasing costs, making it uncompetitive, and implying a declining market share over time. However, because Kampo cannot fail, it has a high risk tolerance and can ultimately be borne by the taxpayer. This means increasing market share, enabling this postal life insurance system to underestimate the price of its products. Although growth prospects are probably what MPT hopes, MOF seems equally interested in protecting its affiliated insurance companies from "excessive" competition.

The end result of these conflicting incentives is that Kampo appears to limit the premiums that insurance companies charge. If their prices rise too much, Kampo will gain more shares. In response, the insurance company can return the premium. Conversely, if investment returns or greater efficiencies reduce private sector premiums relative to basic insurance, Kampo will lose market share unless adjustments are made.

Japan's life insurance division also lags behind its American counterparts in formulating ways in which companies can cooperate to deal with the threat of personal anti-selection and fraud. Although the number of companies in Japan is much smaller, the mistrust and disunity among them has led to an isolated approach to these threats. In the United States, the presence of a sector-sponsored entity such as the Medical Information Bureau [MIB] is the first line of defense against fraud, which in turn can save the industry about $ 1 billion annually in terms of protecting value and outpost effects. Soon after, major carriers in Japan began to adopt methods similar to forming common data warehouses and sharing data.

Analysts often complain that insurance companies are reluctant to adhere to prudent international norms in order to disclose their financial data to the investment community and its policyholders. This is especially true because companies have common characteristics compared to "public" companies in the United States. For example, Nissan Mutual Life Insurance Co. went bankrupt in 1997. Although the company ’s president admitted to bankruptcy for many years after the bankruptcy, the company has generally reported net assets and profits in recent years.

Foreign life insurance

Since the American Life Insurance Company [ALICO] first entered the Japanese market in February 1973, there are currently 15 foreign life insurance companies [over 50% of foreign investment] in business. However, companies like American Family Life [AFLAC] were initially allowed to operate only in the third sector, Medicaid Areas such as the Critical Illness Supplement Program and Cancer Program, which was not attractive to Japanese insurance companies. The mainstream life insurance business is controlled by foreign carriers. However, in the late 1990s, there was a huge turmoil in the industry, and many domestic companies fell into severe financial difficulties. Japan has gone to great lengths to protect itself, allowing foreign companies to acquire troubled companies and keep them in business.

Foreign operators continue to enter the Japanese market. As one of the two largest life insurance markets in the world, Japan is considered strategically important with North America and the European Union. The collapse of domestic life insurance companies and the continued deregulation have promoted the consolidation of the Japanese life insurance market, which has provided global insurance companies with major opportunities to expand their business in Japan. The total market share of foreign participants is gradually increasing. As of the end of fiscal year 1999, global insurance companies' premium income accounted for more than 5%, while effective personal business accounted for more than 6%. These numbers are about double what they were five years ago.

In 2000, AXA Group strengthened its business base in Japan by acquiring Japan's Dantai Life Insurance Co., Ltd., a domestic secondary insurance company with weak financial strength. To this end, AXA established the first holding company in the Japanese life sector. Subsequently, Aetna Life Insurance Co. acquired Heiwa Life Insurance Co., Winterthur Group acquired Nicos Life Insurance, Prudential British company [Prudential UK] acquires Orico Life Insurance. Also active in the Japanese market are American insurance company Hartford Life Insurance Co., known for its variable insurance business, and France's Cardiff Vie Assurance.

In addition, Manulife Century, a subsidiary of the manufacturing merchant life insurance company, inherited the business and assets of Daihyaku Mutual Life Insurance Company, which failed in May 1999. In April 2001, AIG Life Insurance Company assumed the business of Chiyoda Life and Prudential. Life Insurance Co., Ltd. took over Jingrong Life. Both Japanese companies applied for court protection last October.

Supported by a good global track record and strong financial capabilities, foreign entrants enjoy a reputation as part of an international insurance group. They also got rid of the negative interest margin that has plagued Japanese insurance companies for a decade. Despite market turbulence, foreign companies are better able to optimize business opportunities. Although several large Japanese insurance companies still dominate the market, the dynamics are changing as existing business units move from domestic insurers, including failed ones, to new immigrants eligible for policyholders. The pursuit of quality. The list of companies with foreign participation is as follows:

INA Himalayan Life
Prudent life
Manulife Century Life

Scandinavian life
GE Edison Life
Aoba life

Antai peace life
Ridan Life
Zurich life

Japan ALICO
American Family Life
AXA Nichidan Life

Prudent life
ING life
Cardiff Guarantee Alliance

NICOS life

Foreign insurers are expected to lead their domestic competitors to some extent in terms of innovative products and distribution, allowing them to gain a broader experience in the global insurance market. The immediate challenge for foreign insurers is how to establish a franchise large enough in Japan so that they can take advantage of these competitive advantages.

What's wrong with the life insurance industry?

In addition to its low operating efficiency, Japan's life insurance industry is also a victim of government policies, part of which aims to free banks from financial difficulties. By keeping short-term interest rates low, the Bank of Japan encouraged a relatively large spread between short-term and long-term interest rates in the mid-1990s. This benefits banks, which tend to pay short-term interest rates with deposits and long-term interest rates with loans.

However, the same policy is not good for life insurance companies. Their customers have higher interest rates on insurance policies that are usually long-term investments. Falling interest rates usually mean gains for insurance companies. Assets fall. By the end of 1997, insurance company officials reported that guaranteed yields averaged 4%, while yields on priority assets and Japanese long-term government bonds hovered below 2%.

Even if the numbers increase, insurance companies cannot make up for the negative difference. In fiscal 1996, they tried to get rid of the dilemma by cutting the benefits of pension-type investments, only to see a lot of money under their management flow to competitors.

To increase the damage, life insurance companies bear part of the cost of cleaning up the bank. Distressed assets are chaotic. Since 1990, the Ministry of Finance has allowed the issuance of subordinated bonds ordered by banks. They can count any funds raised through such instruments as part of their capital, making it easier than others to meet existing capital / asset ratio requirements. It can be said that this treatment makes sense, because the holders of this debt [such as equity holders] are almost last in the bankruptcy event.

Subordinated debt has high interest rates precisely because of the higher risk of default. In the early 1990s, insurance companies were almost unable to determine bank defaults, were seduced by the high returns available, and provided large loans to banks and other financial institutions on a subordinate basis. Smaller companies, especially those eager to catch up with larger peers, especially large players. Tokyo Mutual Life Insurance Company ranks 16th in the Japanese life insurance industry based on assets. As of March 31, 1997, about 8% of its assets are subordinated debt, while industry leader Nippon Life has only 3%. .

The rest is of course history. Banks and securities companies that insurance companies also borrowed from began to close in the mid-1990s. The fall of Sanyo Securities Co., Ltd. last fall was partly due to the failure of life insurance companies to extend their subordinated loans to the brokerage company. Life insurance companies have complained that even if the bank's failure suggests that they should have been repaid, they sometimes cannot. For example, it was reported that when Meiji Life Insurance Co. closed down in November, the outstanding debt owed to Hokkaido Takubo Bank Co., Ltd. was 35 billion yen [$ 291.7 million]. Even though Hokkaido Bank did have some good loans transferred to North Pacific Bank Co., Ltd., Meiji Life did not receive compensation from these assets. It will obviously have to write off the entire loan balance.

Subordinated debt is only part of the bad debt story. In the early 1990s, with the collapse of the bubble economy, insurers played a role in almost every large, half-baked loan scheme. For example, they are lenders, they want to rent [housing finance company], and have to share the costly mess-up work. In addition, like banks, insurance companies rely on unrealized profits from shareholdings to help them in case of trouble. During the bubble period, small insurance companies bought this stock at relatively high prices. As a result, under the depressed stock price at the end of 1997, except for two medium-sized [tiers 9-16] life insurance companies, none of them achieved Net loss.

What future

Analysts have identified the following short-term challenges for the industry:

New market entrants
Profit pressure
Poor asset quality; and,
capital.

The recent high-profile closure of several life insurance companies has put pressure on life companies to urgently address these challenges in a identifiable manner.

The investment market is even worse than expected. Interest rates have not risen from historical lows. The Nikkei index has fallen since January 2001, and has fallen to a nine-year low after a recent terrorist attack on US soil. Unrealized gains have provided a certain buffer for most insurance companies in the past, but it depends on the insurance company. Relying on unrealized returns, the volatility of retained earnings is now affecting the level of capitalization, which in turn affects financial flexibility.

Table 1
Major risks facing Japanese life insurance companies

Business risk
Financial risk

Weak Japanese economy
Strong income pressure

Lack of confidence of policyholders to pursue quality
Low interest rates, exposed to fluctuations in domestic and overseas investment markets

Deregulation and increased competition
Poor asset quality

Insufficient safety net for policyholders
Insufficient capital

Accelerating the integration of the life sector with other financial sectors
Limited financial flexibility

Most analysts will probably agree that Japanese life insurers face problems with solvency and liquidity. The heavy contractual obligations assumed by policyholders, the declining return on assets, and the mitigation effect of unrealized returns on stock portfolios have little or no mitigation. All these factors have led to the uncertainty of some companies' sustainable viability. Many others, while apparently solvent, face the risk that they will have to pay off unstable policyholders earlier than originally planned. Solvency or liquidity issues raise questions about how insurance companies will manage their assets. Another factor that must be considered is Japan's aging population. As Mr Yasuo Satoh, IBM Japan Financial Industry Insurance Industry Program Manager pointed out: "The industry needs to change business models. They must focus on the benefits of life rather than the benefits of death, and they must emphasize Medicaid. And the long-term care sector because of the total population Is aging. "

Japanese life insurance companies are actively seeking larger segments, while seeking to establish unique strategies in traditional life and non-life businesses. In late 2000, the industry witnessed the emergence of a number of business partnerships and cross-border alliances involving large family life insurance companies. In view of the intensification of market integration, fierce competition and the full opening of the third sector business, the two companies are reviewing their involvement through the subsidiary's non-life insurance business unit, which was first allowed in 1996.

In the long run, Japanese insurance companies may establish business alliances on a shareholding basis. In the short term, the extensive integration of the Japanese financial market will also comprehensively reform the life insurance industry. Although domestic life insurance companies announced various business strategies in the second half of 2000 to cope with this drastic change, the actual benefits of each insurance company for various planned alliances remain uncertain. Further market integration will at least add value to policyholders, thereby providing more products and services. To be successful, life insurers must be more sensitive to a variety of customer needs while establishing new business models to secure their revenue base. Given the high savings rate of the Japanese population, the long-term prospects seem good. But in the short term, Japan is expected to see more insurance companies succumb and then tighten their profits through comprehensive reforms, prudent investment and disclosure regulations.

Keep it with you (airline standards)

Wouldn't it be a joy-filled world if airlines imposed consistent restrictions on the size and weight of carry-on luggage? Well, your dreams are shattered now, just like the mm mm luggage you tried to pack into your overhead luggage compartment on your last flight. Not all aircraft overhead storage is the same. Each airline restricts baggage based on the internal configuration of its fleet. In short, this means that one bag can be carried on one flight but must be checked on another.

Fortunately, domestic airlines such as American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines have agreed to a maximum size of 22 x 14 X 9 inches. Unfortunately, most wheeled suitcases push these sizes to their limits. I myself had to check a baggage at the door because the wheels were too big to close the overhead cabin.

Some domestic airlines are more tolerant of baggage restrictions. Alaska Airlines allows for a huge 24 x 17 x 10 inches [hence, we assume passengers can fit their fur coats on board]. AirTran and Southwest allow 24 x 16 x 10 inches. Unless you carry bricks, carry-on items are rarely weighed, but there are technical limitations. Ensure that large wig airlines do not exceed 40 pounds of hand luggage and large wig airlines do not exceed 25 pounds of hand luggage.

If you are abroad, bring a backpack or lightweight luggage bag. European airlines carry very strict carry-on luggage. Weight is also a big factor. Air France and Alitalia limit hand luggage to 21 X 13 X 9 inches and a maximum weight of 26.4 pounds. Lufthansa, Swissair and Turkish Airlines carry luggage that can be 21 X 15 X 9 inches, but these airlines have a maximum counterweight of 17.6 pounds.

New seats and floats usually mean that the pockets under your front seat have less than 8 inches of clearance and a maximum width of 14 inches. The middle seat in the three-row seat has even less space under the seat.

Our suggestion is that if you know you want to travel abroad or take a different size aircraft, it is worth buying light and small hand luggage around 21 X 13 X 9 inches. If you don't stuff heavy, unforgivable stuff in a sack, it can fly almost anywhere. Keep in mind that overhead bins are not "very" flexible, so be sure to measure your carry-on baggage before dragging it to the door to avoid being checked.

India's top online travel company (OTA)-get to know them before using their services

There are more than 30 online travel companies in India, excluding airlines and other hotel websites. Few of them specialize in specific fields. In order to benefit all Indian tourists from all over the world, the top ten websites that can book Indian travel are as follows −

Makemytrip.com -MakeMyTrip, India's # 1 travel website founded and promoted by Mr Deep Deep, is the top website for all travel related products and services in the country. They now offer air tickets, hotel reservations, car rentals, resorts, and even train reservations on their website. Makemytrip caters to the US / Canada market, India market, and recently they also started Makemytrip UAE. Makemytrip is now conducting an initial public offering in the United States, raising approximately $ 100 million. They were oversubscribed and raised about $ 800 million. Their office is located in Gurgaon, India, and they have more than 700 employees. Their code areas of expertise include vacation planning and booking, including inbound travellers. They are believed to sell 8,000 tickets per day.

Yatla -Yatra is known as the country's second largest OTA travel website. Dhruv Shringi promoted it with several other guys who had worked at eBookers before the company was founded. Yatra is funded by India's leading Reliance Group, TV 18 Group and NVP, and has also recently received funding from Intel. They specialize in domestic flights. They are also from Gurgaon, India and have more than 600 employees. They also book car rentals, hotels, holidays and train reservations. Currently, they are expected to sell 5,000 tickets per day.

Creterip -About 3 years ago, Cleartrip was a new entrant in the Indian market and they are known for their technology. As the name suggests, their technology is very clear, and there are no banners or pop-ups on the homepage. They are the first OTAs to integrate with India's IRCTC railway booking system. They are from Mumbai and have a smaller team compared to Makemytrip or Yatra.

Expedia India -Expedia recently entered the travel industry in India and currently they are focusing on the hotel business. They have not integrated low-cost airlines [such as GoAir, GoIndigo, JetLite, Kingfisher Red, etc.] into their product portfolio. But it is certain that they will lead the Indian market within a year.

Travelocity India -Travelocity has once again become a new entrant into the Indian market and is growing rapidly. They recently purchased another OTA hotel called Travelguru. They are being controlled by Singapore.
