Multinational Corporations in China Excerpt :

China is the world's largest emerging market economy and the fastest-growing market. It is the second largest foreign direct investment recipient in the world, surpassed only by the U.S. Also, China is undergoing two major transitional phases: from a command economy to a market-based one, and from a rural, agricultural society to an urban, industrial one. This book demonstrates how the success of foreign companies depends on the extent to which they can benefit from this structural transformation. It illustrates industrial and foreign direct investment policies regulated by the Chinese government, outlines the key investment opportunities, provides insights about how to analyze structural attributes of an industry, and presents the decision framework for investment selection. The book contains several case studies showing how companies choose relevant investment strategies in China. The unique quality of this book as an important guide to Chinese industry today is based on the author's double experience, first from his practical career in China and more recently from his academic career in the U.S.

Determinants of Cash Holdings in Multinational Corporation s Foreign Subsidiaries Excerpt :

Manuscript Type: EmpiricalResearch Question/Issue: We examine determinants of cash holdings in Chinese subsidiaries of U.S. multinational corporations (MNCs), a setting where growth opportunities make cash holdings desirable for investment opportunities but also vulnerable to potential expropriation because of poor investor protection.Research Findings/Insights: We show that headquarters accumulate larger cash holdings in foreign subsidiaries with locally registered patents and in foreign subsidiaries operating in the same industry as corporate headquarters. Further, foreign cash holdings are higher when these are safeguarded by a subsidiary board. Moreover, the effect of shared industry on subsidiary cash holdings is larger when a board is installed in the subsidiary. Finally, the positive relation between a subsidiary's capability to innovate and to transfer knowledge and its level of cash holdings is stronger when the subsidiary is led by U.S. expatriate CEOs. Theoretical/Academic Implications: Our results indicate that MNCs accumulate cash in foreign subsidiaries with innovation and knowledge transfer capabilities. Furthermore, and in line with agency theory, we find that MNCs safeguard foreign cash via the installment of subsidiary boards and expatriate CEOs. These findings suggest that the installment of monitoring devices are crucial in reducing the potential expropriation risk of foreign cash holdings.Practitioner/Policy Implications: Our study highlights the importance of considering foreign subsidiaries' positions in innovation and in knowledge transfer when MNCs make decisions on the levels of overseas cash holdings. It offers insights regarding the importance of subsidiary boards and expatriate CEOs in monitoring and controlling foreign subsidiaries.

R d Investment Of Multinational Corporations And China s Independent Innovation Excerpt :

China has attracted a huge amount of investment in R&D internationalization of multi-national corporations (MNCs), which is playing an important role in its economy. Constrained by natural resources, China has to attach more importance to technological progress and indigenous innovation in order to move beyond the old economic growth model. Technology seems inaccessible to outsiders, which prevents others from doing research in a comprehensive and systematic manner. In this book, technology is regarded as a factor of production that is allocated by MNCs across the world to maximize profits. Such rational economic behavior serves as our entry point to enhance existing theoretical achievements on R&D internationalization.

Strategies of Multinational Corporations and Social Regulations Excerpt :

This contributed volume seeks to provide a unique window on the globalization process by analyzing the dynamics of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Europe and Asia, as well as its influence on the renewal of public policies and regulations, both transnational and local. It discusses the link between the trans-nationalization of productive and business systems and the renewal of local regulations in the light of concerns over competitiveness and attractiveness, as well as new social tensions. Multinational corporations (MNCs) as key actors of globalization are central for understanding the new interactions between the global, regional and local dimensions as well as for highlighting the challenges of regulation both at transnational level and within national boundaries. Research approaches along two broad lines are presented: First, a theoretical and empirical approach that examines links between the strategies of multinationals and local public policy in order to contribute to a better understanding of the institutional dynamics of social regulation. Second, a comparative approach that compares regional spaces, with particular attention to Europe on the one hand, and to the two great emerging powers, China and India, on the other.

Corporate Governance of Chinese Multinational Corporations Excerpt :

This book is the first to explore the issue of corporate governance in China's new corporations. With rapid development over the last two decades, China has seen compelling achievements in overseas investment. Specifically, an increasing number of Chinese companies have been “going out” to become multinational enterprises. From the practical view, corporate governance issues have been identified in the literature as one of the most important factors in determining whether these Chinese multinational enterprises succeed or not. However, existing literature provides little investigation and understanding about corporate governance of Chinese multinational enterprises. This book fills that gap and will be of value to corporate executives, scholars of China's economy, and journalists.

Risk Management Strategies of Japanese Companies in China Excerpt :

In the context of political tensions and rising economic interdependence between Japan and China, this books studies how Japanese multinational companies try to minimize damages and manage their own fear and uncertainty to sustain their business interests. Using a qualitative approach, including over 150 interviews with Japanese and Chinese business and industry leaders, combined with statistical analysis of unique firm-level data, this book brings a ‘firm-level view’ to this crucial case of political conflict amid economic interdependence. It argues that there is wide variation in the degree of material damages Japanese multinationals sustain in the aftermath of political disputes, and how threatening they perceive the risks of political conflict to be. This book then goes on to evaluate the different responses to risk, from promoting Japan's culture through privately funded tactics and building common cause with the government, to diversifying a portion of assets abroad and even leaving China entirely. Presenting a new angle on economic globalization in the Asia Pacific region, Risk Management Strategies of Japanese Companies in China will be useful to students and scholars of Asian politics, business and economics as well as international political economy.
