Many prominent entrepreneurs who are CEOs of multinational companies will be delivering talks at the seminar. This looks better as CEO's will attend the seminar as speakers they will extend the support. Its like include all the important people in decision making and they all will help in implementing the same

Some local businessmen have been voicing their interest in launching branches overseas. Some not all or most of them.

I am not the expert and V26 in my gmat proves that . So experts please correct me if i am wrong in my explanation.

How can local entrepreneur support IBC ? If local entrepreneurs participate in seminar ? No way . The only way to support IBC is that if local entrepreneurs increase their share of business by opening overseas branch. So Answer should be E.

Participating in seminar will do nothing for IBC. So I think, no way D can be correct answer.

My answer is based on the reasoning given in the below lines

the contribution of local entrepreneurs to the IBC is almost negligible. In order to get more local businesses to contribute, the club has proposed to host seminars on how local entrepreneurs can establish their businesses in other countries

To lure LE its a good idea to get prominent figures in the seminar. also its given that contribution of LE in IBC is not too much.

does someone have the OA for this question.

The current hit rate on this question fuels my earlier suspicion that the OA might be incorrectly stated.

Could one of the experts give this one a try?

GMATNinja , nightblade354 , VeritasKarishma could one of you shed some light on this?

Regards,
Chris

Can it not be B?

My thought process behind choosing B was that since the membership rates are high, the local entrepreneurs are not able to contribute to the IBC. Thus, with the help of the seminar, the entrepreneurs can contribute.

E is incorrect as it says "Some local businessmen have been voicing their interest in launching branches overseas", but we don't know if these businessmen will attend the seminar and influence local entrepreneurs.

I don't think (D) can be right. We don't know what the CEO's would be talking about. If businesses don't want to go international, the presence of CEO's makes no difference. Hence IBC cannot support the business because local businesses are not open to the idea of going international.

(E) tells there are some business who are keen and open on doing so. Here, the IBC can help these businesses contribute. IBC could help the local businesses in many ways, one of which could be introducing local business men to multi-national company CEO's.
