The NBR Analysis offers thought-provoking essays and briefs on the most important economic, political, and strategic issues in the Asia-Pacific region today.
This essay examines the forces that are pushing Chinese firms to expand their overseas operations, the obstacles to their success, and the implications for policymakers in China and abroad. WTO accession strengthened the level of competition and brought a host of new pressures to bear on China’s domestic market. Firms now struggle with difficult choices regarding how to internationalize while maintaining a competitive edge in more demanding environments. The research developed in this essay provides a new baseline for understanding the reasons, goals, and methods of Chinese firms in their evolution from domestic to global players.
