You have a dilemma. It is only possible to have an account in a country where you have an address and a valid credit an billing address in that country. Apps are forever linked to the ID that was used to download them and can only be updated with that ID. Apple detects which country you are in when you use the App Store and if you try and use a store in another country when you are not in that country you cannot download.

Thanks for your reply.
I guess I know what's going on and I believe that I am not the only one who experienced this problem.
Apple network is global and I think it's just tiime to consider solving cross border dilemmas.
I have seen many good app builders with great apps. However, until now that is only accessible in the local community. It is such a pity that the rest of the world will not be able to use them.

Not 100% correct, as if you are in a different country (travelling,etc) from your "home" you can purchase and download, and update apps and iTunes content from your "home" itunes/app store. As long as your APple ID is tied to that store. The only requirement to use a particular store is that, as you have stated, you must have a verifiable mailing/billing address and a CC in the country whose store you intend to use.
