This factor is very much important for the countries as they have to share many things with each other which can only be possible if they have good relationship with each other in this regard they have to make their tourism affects better and improved with each other.

That is why Cosmo always remain in the search of remaining being innovative. The motives of such type of research are to being cooperative in accordance with the rival companies for the assessment as well as the development of the knowledge that is based on the technology.

It is the extensive use of the technology that makes the company able to develop the new products and make use of these products to keep the environment of the business smooth and favorable, and the use of particular technology to utilize it in business is the fundamental motive of STA (Hassan, 2000).
Critical Analysis and Recommendation
The strategic management of the business as well as other policy of the public industry particularly the tourism industry, the spirits of the cooperatives are limited for the defense of the marketing for the managers of both kind that are risk averse as well as those who are intolerant of the ambiguity. The dual attitude towards the risk as well as the inhabitants of the personal cooperatives ventures for such businesses getting together or the formulation of the alliance with the business that is larger for the development of the knowledge that is based on the knowledge. The Paris is the place to visit that is also developed and has the huge presence of the alliance. The alliances make efforts to make use of the technology extensively for the development of the businesses as well as also to enhance the sills (Pansiri & Courvisanos, 2011).

They provide best tourists that guide them properly and that make their journey lovable by telling them the accurate knowledge about the places where they are going to visits about Taiwan.
The strategies that Taiwan Cosmos to make their tourists comfortable and relaxed as well as they are going to make the stay of people very much informative and very much efficient as well. They had the strategy to provide best place to stay for their people who are going to visit them. They are excellent in this regard that they are going to manage this strategy in best regards. The most important strategy of them is that the tour guide that they provide to their visitors are very much efficient in having knowledge of the places very well. They guide the people well and make their visit very much efficient and positively impressive as well. (Grac & Dodds, 2008)
The most important thing is that they are going to manage the timing with great efficiency as well as they have provided the best security to their visitors. According to the history, the alliance facilitates the impulsive cooperation between people. The management, as well as the development of the alliance, is one of the skills that are critical in the industry of hospitality and tourism (Ritchie, Chaos, crises and disasters: a strategic approach to crisis management in the tourism industry, 2004).
The tourism Company Cosmos of Taiwan has been given the best efficiency in their working to make the visitor happy with their visit in their country. The most important is that they have provided the best efficiency in their services that they are offering to the people as well as they are going to manage their services with the great affordable rates as well.

Green Leadership Strategies
Tourism is often considered the one of the largest industry that is also expanding continuously. The development of this industry is considered the economic tool that is making tourism an attractive industry. It is also a fact that the advantages also accompanied usually by some negative affect that may provide the negative effect on the environment. The case of business for going green or it can also say that showing more commitment toward the environment is the main issue in almost all the industry. This issue is also related to the tourism industry. It is not enough for the industries to just convenience and shows commitment for the aim of the right to the environment.
Now, it has become much necessary for the tourism industry to follow the environmental practice for the provision of the particular and tangible of evidence advantages that are related to the environmental commitment. The words “green” “sustainability” and “environmental” is related to the various productions of the tourism and destination particularly in the strategies of the marketing as well as the certification program. However, the extent by which “green” “sustainability” and “environmental” committed a destination or tourism product has not clear always. Now sustainability is like the buzzword not like an action plan (Evans & Elphick, 2005).
In the previous decade, a lot of initiative regarding environment implemented by the progressive industry of tourism, associates, individuals, and companies. Many organization of the tourism also developed the environmental guideline. In this regard, Cosmo also has the strategy to consider the environment and make the action plan to make it green. The concentration of the environment not only proves beneficial to the environment but also facilitate the company to attract as well as retain the customers.
With the passage of time, the concerns with the environment are increasing day by day and the companies are also making efforts to provide their contribution to making the environment green. So, as Cosmo belongs to the tourism industry that is one of the large industry, so it is necessary for the company to make effort for the safety of environment that also generate revenues by the retention of the customers, and the good environmental action plan can attract customers (Blake & Sinclair, 2003).
Crisis and Risk Management
In the tourism industry, the number of the disaster, as well as crises, is increasing that is affecting the industry of tourism that may range from the natural to the incident influencing the human. In the recent years, the industry of the global tourism experiencing many disasters as well as crises in which terrorist attack, economic recession, political instability, natural disasters, and the biosecurity threats include. The natural disaster has the ability to disrupt the distribution chain as well as the supply of the best business services that are vulnerable to the infrastructure that may be electrical, communication and many others.
The vulnerability can be exposed with the help of behavior induced to human that impacted dramatically to the tourism industry. There may not present much research on the risk and disaster management as well as the disasters and crises management. However, it is a very crucial element not only for the organization but also for the whole industry. The impact of crises is negative to the tourism, so it is necessary to make the plan for the sustainable development. The important thing to consider in making the plan is the clear understanding of the nature of the crises as well as the extent of its impact (Wilhite, Hayes, & Cody Knutson, 2000).
In this regard, the Cosmo Company is also having the plan so that it can eliminate or minimize the chances of the risk, crises or disaster, or if they happen it also has some strategies to minimize the intensity of the crises. The risk management strategy of the company is very efficient, that becoming the reason for increasing the popularity of the company as well as its revenues.
Critical Analysis and Recommendations
The risk management is very crucial in all the industries as people also give preference to this issue in order to make sure the level of security. In the tourism industry, this factor is important for the sustainable development of the industry because the tourist may tour to the other country that is totally unfamiliar to them. So they select the option that can manage all the risk or disaster and can also provide the reliable services all the time. It is also recommended to the companies to discuss in detail the level of security with the customers (Ritchie, Chaos, crises and disasters: a strategic approach to crisis management in the tourism industry, 2004).
The Taiwan Cosmos Company has the best efficiency in providing the services to the people who visit them. They must focus on the betterment of the thing that the place they provide to the people to stay must be big enough that people can find more ease in terms of living there. The guide they provide to the tourists must have more efficient knowledge about the places where he or she is taking to the people for visiting. The route buses that they are giving to the visitors must be very much great in providing the best efficiency to the people for visiting the places.
Summing up all, it can be concluded that the industry of tourism is one of the largest industry. It is necessary for the sustainable development of the industry to have the proper planning. The important element of this planning may include the wise selection of the destination of tourism, diversity of destination, keeping care of strategic alliance, the development of the green business as well as the planning for the risk as well as disaster management. All these factors are important for the sustainable development of the industry as well as Cosmo.
