Interdependence S The reliance of two or more nations on one another for products or services is called interdependence. S There are three main areas of interdependence in trade: primary industries, secondary industries and tertiary industries.

Secondary Industries S Made up of primary manufacturing or processing. Secondary manufacturing producing both capital goods (products used by business such as machinery and heavy equipment) and consumer goods (clothing, packaged food and i. Phones. ) Why do we call capital goods capital and why do we call consumer goods consumer?
Foreign Ownership S In Canada we have Branch Plants. Branch plants are foreign owned industry that produces products for consumption in the host country. Kellogg’s has factories in Canada, but their offices are based out of Michigan in the US. What are some advantages to Branch plants?
Disadvantages 1. Business functions: Often subsidiary operations are reduced from the original specifically research and development. 2. Innovation: Little innovation occurs. The purpose is mostly to produce goods. 3. Exports: Goods produced are sold in the host country and exports are rare. 4. Use of Non – Canadian Materials: Materials are often sourced outside of Canada. Therefore primary producers do not benefit.

Tertiary Industries (Services) S Provide necessary services to other businesses and consumers. Examples include: TEACHING! Banking, Construction, Transportation, Law. What is your favorite retail store? Where do you shop? Why? What makes it unique?
