This is when people enter the country from their own country of origin or another country which is not their home.

The conclusions are important for determining the best focus for retail tourism marketing aimed at increasing tourist shopping satisfaction. To achieve this purpose, empirical research is conducted on the basis of data from 1989, when the formation of the present product life cycle stage and the market structure began, to 1996.

For example, a manufacturer might require its parts suppliers to be located nearby its assembly plant to minimize the cost of transportation.
