ng tasks:

  • Check spelling and grammar and make sure you proofread.
  • Be consistent with fonts: this does not mean EVERYTHING must be in Arial. What it means is that all main headings could be in Arial and all body text is in Times New Roman. Consistency is key for readability!
  • Title Page: Your title should be: Trading Manual for Sri Lanka on your title page. Acknowledgement section at bottom of page - Prepared by: Dasun, course, and the date.
  • Preface page: A ½ to ¾ page highlighting some of the unique opportunities and advantages of doing business in your selected country. Remember you want it to sound positive because you want foreign investment and trade.
  • Table of Contents page: Titled, aligned, centered, and a border.
  • Resources: Each section had a work cited or resource link requested. Incorporate those sites within those sections for easy reference for the user.
  • Visuals: Pictures should complement the text.
  • Chart(s): Some of your sections will lend themselves to presenting the data in chart form for easy reference or comparison. Pie or bar graphs often illustrate data well. For example, consider a chart for your market profile data.
  • Map(s): Quality, accurate maps that reflect population distribution and topography add to a manual.
  • Creativity/unique features - use your imagination! This will demonstrate effort. Look in texts, annual reports, and web sites to get some ideas. It doesn’t have to be “extra” information, but some information you have gathered presented in a different way. Past examples have incorporated “Fact Boxes” into their sections, others have added an extra section entitled Tourist Highlights, and others have added “notes” pages.
