Chinese Outward Foreign Direct Investment

The Globalization of the World Economy series

Edited by Peter J. Buckley, OBE, FBA Professor of International Business, Centre for International Business, Leeds University Business School, University of Leeds, UK and Hinrich Voss, HEC Montréal, Canada

The rapid international expansion of Chinese businesses has evoked mixed perceptions in host countries and among policymakers. This volume brings together rigorous studies on the motivation, background, strategy, and impact of Chinese outward foreign direct investment and the emergence of Chinese multinational enterprises (MNEs). It is thus informative for the next wave of academic research on Chinese and emerging market MNEs in international business, political economy, economic geography and political sciences. Together with an original introduction by the editors, this valuable collection provides an important backdrop for academics who intend to understand emerging market MNEs in order to advise policymakers.

‘Chinese Outward Foreign Direct Investment by Peter J. Buckley and Hinrich Voss provides a comprehensive collection of some of the leading academic articles published on Chinese multinationals. This wonderful collection helps clarify the current state of the art on studies of Chinese multinationals and offers a useful introduction for researchers interested in gaining a deep understanding of the topic.'
