Expatriate Packets, management homework help

Here is the cover letter!

Dear XXX,

  Congratulations on your selection as the World-Wide Outfitters’ (WWO) newest plant manager for our New Delhi, India, operations.  Your decision to take on this vital position for the next three years will prove one of the highlights of your professional career.  As we increase overall production capacity there, you will see firsthand the basis for our motto “We dress the world!”

  In order to provide a smooth transition for you and your family members, we have attached an expatriate transition package to answer the most frequently asked questions regarding an assignment to this area.  We have also assigned a host country sponsor, Rajeev Kumanji, to assist you and your family with your transition.  Rajeev is the Transition Assistance Program supervisor and in this capacity, he possesses a wealth of information on both a professional and personal level.

  As you review the attached information package, pay particular attention to the Pre-Departure Information section since many of these items are time sensitive and may require long lead times to complete them before your departure. 

  You will find many unique challenges associated with this assignment and the opportunity to immerse yourself in a rich and vibrant culture.  You will find many similarities between India and the United States vis-à-vis government structure and educational systems.  Furthermore, with English as the “business language” throughout the country, you will not face the same communication barriers you might expect in our other subsidiaries throughout the world.

  We look forward to a productive and eventful tour and want you to know we are here to help you in any way possible.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call at (202) 395-4000 ext. 231.
