Globalisation refers to the increasing integration of economies, markets, cultures and societies across the world. Globalisation has been characterized by an increase in international trade and investment, enhanced by developments in information and communications technologies (ICTs). It has also been accompanied by a rise in the number of multinational corporations operating across national borders, as well as a rising volume of remittances sent from migrant workers to their families back home.
It is a phenomenon by which goods, services, technologies, ideas, and people are increasingly exchanged across international borders.
Globalisation is a process of increasing economic integration, in which international trade and investment, international migration, communication and media, and cultural exchange are major features.
Globalisation has been driven by the expansion of business activities, commerce, and political authority across national borders. People can travel more easily around the world and investment capital moves freely between countries as investors seek out higher returns on their money in other markets. Information about products and prices is easier to obtain from consumers since online retailers often have websites available in multiple languages, so customers can compare prices from different sources. This has led to greater exposure to different cultures as well as greater competition between businesses operating in different countries.
