definitions: (an addendum to the Enterprise and Economic Development Glossary)
spacer
define commerce:
spacer
. . . enterprising activities that involved exchanges of things that have commercial value (source of quote). See the glossary definition of commercial value. Page down for a definition of international commerce.
spacer
spacer
define commercial transaction:
spacer
. . . doing, carrying on or conducting business to its conclusion or settlement; to conduct or carry out specific activities of commerce; to transfer within a matter of finance.
spacer
spacer
define foreign:
spacer
. . . places outside of a location, such as a county, set apart and distinguished by having its own indigenous population, properties and affairs; a market or a destination or receiving point for goods and services in international commerce or internation trade; not domestic when referenced as an area or place outside of the confines of that which one is a citizen, native or occupant; that which is distant and comparatively unfamiliar to that which is one's abode; something about which there is little or nothing known.
spacer
spacer
define foreign direct investment:
spacer
. . . the financial aspect of enterprise development that leads to economic development as a company on the move headquartered in one country carries out project commitments in another as a chosen location. The foreign location experiences growth and development as recipient of the investment. The Network has a collection economic development definitions which altogether provide insight as to how the worth of foreign direct investment is measured in a broader sense than simply counting the money.

The type of investment defined here includes businesses purchasing all or part of enterprises in foreign countries, in which case economic development may or may not be a factor. Wikipedia has a foreign direct investment article; also, Answers.com explains the meaning of foreign indirect investment using definitions from several sources.
spacer
spacer
define foreign investment capital:
spacer
. . . that which can be converted to money in hand as an available resource infused from outside a country; the product of financial instruments organized or created through capital formation using sources from outside of a country and identified within the foreign investment process; a financing resource for enterprise and economic development projects.
spacer
spacer
define foreign market:
spacer
. . . given that an economy can be defined as a system for developing, producing, distributing and managing material wealth in and around a place, and that the market is a way of defining it in terms of the existence of buyers, a separate economy recognizable as a market that is accessible from the first is deemed to be foreign—a foreign market. This definition is refined by factoring in the term export. Therefore, an enterprise operating from its location with an ability to effectively reach buyers of its products or services in an economy separated from its own is an exporter. It is seen as exporting to a foreign market.
spacer
spacer
define international:
spacer
. . . transnational; that which is or is about what goes on between two or more nation-states, for example, transactions or dealings across or transcending boundaries.
spacer
spacer
define international commerce:
spacer
. . . commercial transactions on a global scale involving importing and exporting as well as certain development activities, such as providing financing, technology, supplies and equipment, for undeveloped, underdeveloped, and distressed nations in order that they might be positioned to take advantage of opportunities for business and commerce beyond their borders.
spacer
spacer
define international development:
spacer

. . . inputting resources, providing services and seeking prospects for making changes on a global scale through managed efforts aimed at maximizing capability, potential, quality of life, sustainability and growth among and within countries and economies. In other words, development on an international level is made up of efforts . . . to bring people out of poverty and so reduce how much their country relies on overseas aid. Many different things can contribute to development which reduces poverty, such as settling conflicts, increasing trade, tackling climate change, securing more and better aid, and improving health and education (source of quote)

Ongoing efforts are an an amalgam of international development programs of the United Nations as well as its member nation-states and the World Bank. Coalitions and individual countries as well as administrative divisions within them seek enterprise and economic development in various ways, such as encouraging trade and commerce. The typical effort involves enterprise development which ultimately brings about success in local economies—where people are free and able to . . . live work and share things in common (source of quote).

ally networks seek opportunities in various ways, for example,as well as the development efforts that reach beyond national borders to find prospects as well as efforts to gain from reverse investment opportunities; a expression used to identify various development programs within organizations such as the United Nations and World Bank. For example, the World Bank and UN work together through the latter's organization known as the International Development Association.

Wikipedia offers a discussion, pointing out that international development is ... a concept that lacks a universally accepted definition. It is an expression that is, nevertheless, understood within the context of economic development to the extent that agencies are able to create programs with such entities as international trade and development. Several websites dedicated to international development, including Wikipedia, tie the expression to discussions of sustainable development.

The UK International Development Department explains how it is involved in by pointing out that international development encompasses ... . Also, there is a US United States Agency for International Development (USAID) website which addresses, among other things, economic growth and trade.

The Network is dedicated to global enterprise and economic development; therefore, its definition of international development is within the context of the two processes combined

Tooth, Nail and Plants
In the black hole known as pre-history, humans established a complex system of community that includes elements of labor, reward and trade. This eventually included the domestication of plants and livestock, furthering the scope of tradable goods as well as tying people to the land so economies could develop. The uneven development of ancient economies suggests that many systems were attempted, but the profusion of empires suggests that the rule of powerful elite was the most successful in the early going.

The Spaces Between Empires
The most telling fact about humanity in the ancient world is that when the external controls of a ruler were removed, people reverted to subsistence farming. Although there is only one official dark age in the history text, the disconnected ancient world used to go through dark ages much like the blackouts and brownouts that ripple across energy hungry states. In these dark areas, the people went back to securing enough food for themselves and surviving until the next powerful figure came along to claim them as his own. (Learn more in The History Of Economic Thought.)

Feudalism
Up until the 12th century, less than 5% of the population of Europe lived in towns. Skilled workers lived in the city but received their keep from feudal lords rather than a real wage, and the farmers were essentially serfs for landed nobles. It took the Black Plague, one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, to shake up the system significantly. By killing scores of people in both town and countryside, the various plagues of the dark ages actually created a labor shortage.

Nobles fought to hire enough serfs to keep their estates running and many trades suddenly needed to train outsiders, as entire guild families were wiped out. The advent of true wages offered by the trades encouraged more people to move into towns where they could get money rather than subsistence in exchange for labor. As a result of this change, birth rates exploded and families soon had extra sons and daughters who, without land to tend, needed to be put to work. Child labor was as much a part of the town's economic development as slavery was part of the rural life.

Mercantilism
Mercantilism is now known as an attempt to create trade imbalances between nations, as well as between colonies and their imperial rulers, so that one nation prospers at the cost of others. The word "mercantilism" also has a less known usage, which simply means the principles and methods of commerce. Mercantilism started as trade between towns, but it was not necessarily competitive trade. Originally, each town had vastly different products and services that were slowly homogenized by demand over time. After the homogenization of goods, trade was carried out in wider and wider circles: town to town, county to county, province to province, and, finally, nation to nation. When too many nations were offering similar goods for trade, the trade took on a competitive edge that was sharpened by strong feelings of nationalism in a continent that was constantly embroiled in wars. (To learn more about globalization, read What Is International Trade?)
