Default International Communication and Cross cultural understanding.

International communication is a concept of moving beyond the boundaries of communication at wide context among different nations and countries. Countries history reflects an impact of objection, complexity, rivalry and dismemberment with different objectives and sometimes revenge. International communication proved to be the mediator to open the gate of dialogue and discussion over several unresolved on long standing issue. Nations misfortune was less contact and long misquotes and misconception. But the idea of IC to foster the sustained contact at all level grass root to strategic level. It fosters freedom there is no censorship of freedom of press, speech, writing and expression at diverse level in society. Nations are getting closer and ties mutual interest in form of relations, business, and religions, culture, information etc.It has promoted the international brotherhood and fraternity. It provided a sense of oneness among nations. Nation has deep roots in society .IC role is inevitable in the diverse cultural with different background history, philosophy, races, belief and taboos,ethinic and religious back ground so therefore nations always require a platform to get enacted with each other by sharing knowledge, removing misunderstanding,adoptibilities of muticulturals.The globalization is credited to have been considered the active partner for nations to come get closer through international communication and contact.Internatinal communication is reflection of thought of multiculturalism. It has opened the gates of liberty and freedom. People can go and come across the world map.IC has changed the global scenario and map. Now the country strategic people can foster their business investment in any country of the world. Global economy is for all. The advent of the global economy is changing the fundamental nature of our governments, businesses, organizations and populations. In short, we are no longer constrained by state boundaries but have all become part of an interdependent international network.
Through we have freedom to adopt in different things

• Freedom of reflection and development of cultural competency.
• We are free to analyze different cultural freedom.
• We are free to mobilize at any country and find the strategies for adapting.
• We can solve problem in communication barriers.
IC has also foster the Cross cultural communication because people are thinking and acting globally. There thinking approach and objectives are not limited. They are moving beyond the boundaries by investing in business internationally, learning diverse languages and cultures. This is the core concept of IC because it is pre-requisite of today era to adopt such things for the better survival through acculturation and diffusion. One of the key changes this has triggered is the need to communicate effectively with different people in different languages and from different cultures
For example person from Pakistan goes to America but does not art of language and cultural. Then he cannot carry out his survival and existence in that particular communication because of communication barrier. He exactly needs to adopt the western thinking, stereotype images and style and fashion otherwise his survival can be at stake.
Today’s economic paradigm has shifted, from "thinking globally and acting locally" to "acting globally and thinking locally." Results in most companies require high levels of collaboration among individuals in diverse functions. Developing teams of individuals who are smart, ambitious, and highly independent is a challenge. When the team is a virtual team with members in diverse locations, time zones, and cultures the challenge is compounded. Remote cross-cultural teams allow us to develop ideas across the business and pool expertise. People from culturally diverse backgrounds bring fresh ideas and new approaches to problem solving which utilized effectively can be a business advantage. The challenge however, is that they also bring different understanding and expectations regarding group dynamics and communication.

1. It is now recognized that linguistic and cultural knowledge are two of the most vital areas of knowledge that organizations must come to acquire if they are to integrate, progress and succeed in the marketplace. Cross cultural communication is a must!
2. Cross cultural communication refers to interpersonal communication and interaction across different cultures. This has become an important issue in our age of globalization and internationalization. Effective cross cultural communication is concerned with overcoming cultural differences across nationality, religion, borders, culture and behavior.
3. Awareness of cultural differences can favorably impact the success of a business. Improved staff interaction, better customer relations and effective client management are all areas that will reap benefits through cross cultural understanding.
4. Basic understanding of cultural diversity is crucial for effective communications. It’s to every team leader’s advantage to have a basic understanding of culture, workplace habits, language problems, communication and politeness styles, hierarchical interactions with superiors and subordinates of your team members.
5. In order for one to "act globally" one must first be develop cultural adaptability and the willingness and ability to take a different perspective.

IC is core concept tying and moving beyond the boundaries by observing attitude and perception, knowledge and comprehension, globalization and business economy, cultural and religion, misconceptions and characteristic concept is product of different mass medium like TV channels, radio, Settelite and cable. IC has changed the political map of the world by sustained contact over changing roles and objectives.
