Mode of foreign market entry : an integrative study

Madhok, Anoop January 1993 (has links)
This study investigates the foreign market entry decision of multinational firms from three theoretical perspectives--namely transaction cost/internalization, competitive strategy and organizational capability. It is argued that each perspective primarily focuses on a different level of analysis--the firm or division, the transaction and the organizational unit respectively. The final decision regarding the means of foreign market entry is a choice made after considering these three forces simultaneously. The study contributes by developing an understanding of the role of organizational capability in the mode of entry decision. It further enriches theory through developing some of the interrelationships between the three perspectives. / The empirical research was conducted through a field study and a cross-sectional questionnaire survey sent to multinational firms with headquarters in Europe and North America. The results suggest that competitive strategy and organizational capability perspectives are most significant in determining the choice of entry mode. The transaction cost perspective does not appear to be significant. / One broad implication for managers is the importance of both analyzing the characteristics of the chosen product-market and critically examining the firm's capabilities in order to focus on what it does best, build upon it and, where necessary, complement this through collaboration with others.

The relationship between marketing orientation and export success among manufacturing companies in the Western Cape

Bothma, Cornelius Henry January 1988 (has links)
Bibliography: leaves 330-342. / In 1985, the writer joined the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) as an export trade advisor in the Western Cape Regional Office. The function of this position is to encourage companies to export and to assist companies registered as exporters with their export endeavours. In this capacity, the writer came into contact with more than 1,000 companies covering a wide range of products, problems, attitudes and situations. It became apparent to the writer that a large number of these companies lacked a marketing orientation in their export activities. There also appeared to be a poor success rate among these exporters in that probably as many as half of the number of registered exporters never achieved any export sales and of the remaining exporters only a few obtained substantial, ongoing and profitable sales abroad. The writer believed that if these companies approached their export activities in a more marketing orientated fashion, their success rate would be significantly improved. This begged the question as to whether a relationship actually exists between export marketing orientation and export success. It is the abovementioned relationship that this study primarily addresses. It was decided to keep the scope of this study confined to manufacturing companies in the Western Cape registered as exporters with the DTI.

The effect of institutional quality on export dynamics. / CUHK electronic theses & dissertations collection

January 2013 (has links)
本文探讨了国家制度环境对出口企业以及出口企业动态的影响。目前关于制度对贸易总值影响的研究已引起了越来越多的关注。然而,关于制度环境对贸易动态影响的研究是非常有限的。所有现有的研究都是基于对某一国家的分析。本文采用世界银行出口企业动态数据库,该数据库包含45个出口国以及200多个进口国的多国面板数据。研究表明,有效的制度环境会增加两国间的出口企业的数量以及出口企业的存活率。良好的制度环境会减少双方违反合同的可能性同时减少对合同执行以及经济法律体制的不确定性。其次,研究表明,与出口国不同,进口国的制度环境对出口企业的平均出口值有负面的影响。进口国有效的制度环境吸引了一些边际生产者进入出口市场,从而降低了整体企业出口的平均值。最后,本文发现制度环境的提升会减少出口企业的市场进入率。有效的制度环境会提高出口市场的稳定性,减少市场内部的流动率。 / This paper studies the effect of institutional quality on exporter behavior and export dynamics. There is a growing interest in the study on the effect of institutions on aggregate trade volume in the recent literature. However, the analysis of institutional effect on the dynamics of trade is relatively limited. Besides, all the existing studies that analyze the dynamic effect of institutions are based on exporting firms in a single country. We use the Exporter Dynamics Database from World Bank that contains rich panel of cross-country data involving 45 exporting countries and more than 200 importing countries in the world. First, we find that there are more exporting firms and the survival rate of the exporting firms is higher in better institutional environment. The good contracting environment makes the breach of the contract more difficult and reduces the uncertainty about contract enforcement and general economic legal system. Secondly, we show that institutions in the importing country have a negative effect on average export value, which is different from the exporting country. The effective institutions in the importing country attract some marginal producers in the export market which reduces the average export value per firm. Finally, entry rate of the exporting firms reduces with the quality of the country’s institutions. The good institutional environment increases market stability and reduces the turnover rate in the export market. / Detailed summary in vernacular field only. / Liu, Xiaojie. / Thesis (M.Phil.)--Chinese University of Hong Kong, 2013. / Includes bibliographical references (leaves 59-63). / Electronic reproduction.
