    Re: phrases with 'world' meaning 'international

    If you start them with a capital letter and/or make them part of a sentence and end that sentence with an appropriate punctuation mark, then yes. The combinations of words you have suggested are both correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Would it be better if I add an indefinite article a before 'part of,' please?

    No. There was nothing wrong with my sentence.
