Potential and Foreign Trade and InvestmentThe basic need potential for Aluminum U.S.A means growth for a domestic company to enter the realm of globalization.

The reason most domestic and foreign companies look into mergers, such as the one between the Japanese automobile industry and Aluminum USA, because expansion into other countries brings potential profit and increasing public awareness to consumers of the company.
