  1. 1. How strong are the links between ‘your place’ in the UK and your non-UK place?
  2. 2. Cabot Circus <ul><li>Cabot Circus is a newly renovated shopping centre. </li></ul><ul><li>It was opened in September 2008, after a 10 year planning and building period. </li></ul><ul><li>The Cabot Circus development area includes, shops, a cinema, offices, a hotel and 250 apartments. </li></ul><ul><li>The cost of the development was £500 million. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Advantages <ul><li>Cabot Circus is a better shopping centre than Broadmead was. </li></ul><ul><li>Transport is easily accessible from Cabot Circus; trains – Bristol Temple Meads or buses – numerous bus stops all over the centre. </li></ul><ul><li>Lots of car parking; although you have to pay, so some find it easier to get the train or bus. </li></ul><ul><li>Created lots of jobs when the centre was built so that all the shops were fully staffed. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Disadvantages <ul><li>Although there is a lot of space to park, it costs quite a lot to park in the Cabot Circus car park all day. </li></ul><ul><li>Cabot Circus is still quite busy although it has been open for almost 3 years. </li></ul><ul><li>Can cause problems for commuters. </li></ul><ul><li>People who live in Cabot Circus’s surrounding area might be annoyed by the amount of noise. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Tata Nano Car <ul><li>The Tata nano car is a inexpensive, rear-engined, four-seated car built by the Indian company Tata Motors. </li></ul><ul><li>Tata Motors began selling the Tata nano in March, 2009. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Advantages <ul><li>Very inexpensive car </li></ul><ul><li>Interior/Exterior design - The Tata Nano has a great design. The exterior, looks very small. However, on the interior the car has much more space than it's exterior appearance. </li></ul><ul><li>The Tata Nano gives you options; you have the choice of having air conditioning, or some other features. </li></ul><ul><li>Tata is considering assembling these cars at local locations; if you bought it in Mumbai, it would most likely have been made in Mumbai, therefore you could easily get it fixed if it breaks. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Disadvantages <ul><li>Lacks safety; no airbags, no wing mirror on the passenger side and no crumple zones. </li></ul><ul><li>Small gas tank; not very efficient. </li></ul><ul><li>Very cheap, so more people can afford the car; this causes lots of traffic jams, because so many people can drive this car. </li></ul><ul><li>Its top speed is 90km </li></ul>
  8. 8. Links between Bristol and Mumbai <ul><li>Call centres; </li></ul><ul><li>- Many companies have call centres in Indian cities. This is because they can pay lower wages to people from foreign countries. An example of a company that uses an Indian city, is Orange who have a call centre in Mumbai. </li></ul>
