How, What, Why & Where Chinese Companies are Going Global

Trent Lundquist

Abstract


In this paper we examine the growing trend of Chinese companies expanding abroad. We look at the economic backdrop of this trend and then comprehensively analyze the situation. We begin by looking at what types of companies are internationalizing; then looking at what their motives are; what their modes of entry are; and finally, what countries they are focusing on. As China continues to makes its presence on the world stage felt, it is important to understand the motivations and long-term goals of its companies. The purpose of this paper is to shed light on Chinese firms’ internationalization efforts, and the possible effects on their multinational competitors across the globe.
