  • HOME COUNTRY UNDERDEVELOPMENT AND INTERNATIONALIZATION: INNOVATION-BASED
           AND ESCAPE-BASED INTERNATIONALIZATION
    • First page: 217
      Abstract: Competitiveness Review, Volume 27, Issue 3, May 2017.
      Purpose We use the rise of emerging-market multinationals as a vehicle to explore how a firm’s country of origin influences its internationalization. Design/methodology/approach Conceptual paper Findings We argue that the home-country’s institutional and economic underdevelopment can influence the internationalization of firms in two ways. First, emerging-market firms may leverage innovations made at home to cope with underdeveloped institutions or economic backwardness to gain a competitive advantage abroad, especially in other emerging markets; we call this innovation-based internationalization. Second, they may expand into countries that are more developed or have better institutions in order to escape weaknesses on these fronts at home; we call this escape-based internationalization. Research limitations/implications Comparative disadvantages influence the internationalization of the firm differently from comparative advantage as it forces the firm to actively upgrade its firm-specific advantage and internationalize. Practical implications We explain two drivers of internationalization that managers operating in emerging markets can consider when facing disadvantages in their home countries and follow several strategies, namely, trickle-up innovation, self-reliant innovation, improvisation management, self-reliance management, technological escape, marketing escape, institutional escape and discriminatory escape. Originality/value We explain how a firm’s home-country’s comparative disadvantage, not just its comparative advantage, can spur firms its internationalization.

  • Outward Direct Investment by Chinese State-Owned Enterprises: Can Host
           Country Policy act as a Country-Specific Advantage?
    • First page: 231
      Abstract: Competitiveness Review, Volume 27, Issue 3, May 2017.
      Purpose The paper investigates outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) by Chinese state-owned enterprises (SOEs), aiming to unveil whether Chinese OFDI policy acted as a country-specific advantage (CSA) that has been turned by Chinese firms, particularly SOEs, into a firm-specific advantage (FSA). Design/methodology/approach Using a dataset spanning 18 years (1996-2013) on international mergers and acquisitions (IM&As) by Chinese companies (SOEs and private-owned enterprises – POEs), and drawing on extant literature, the paper compares systematically the behavior of Chinese SOEs and POEs, aiming to identify differences in their behavioral patterns that indicate that SOEs have benefitted more from policy-induced advantages than their private counterparts. Findings Among other aspects, significant differences were found regarding the behavior of SOEs vis-à-vis POEs that seem to show that SOEs had greater support from public entities leading them to: close larger deals and purchase more companies/stakes in cash; acquire firms with greater debt and implying higher interest payments; and purchase smaller stakes than POEs (indicating that there are other objectives than control). This lends support to the assumption that Chinese SOEs are “sitting on piles of cash”, and that the availability of capital acted as a CSA that has been transformed in a FSA by the companies involved, notably by SOEs. Research limitations/implications The comprehensive and large-scale dataset used includes wholly-owned SOEs, leaving out of this research partially-owned SOEs. The findings of this paper have implications for the discussion on competitive neutrality, and for the academic, managerial and public policy debate. Originality/value To our knowledge, this is the only study to date that shows systematic differences in financing patterns of OFDI (notably via IM&As) by Chinese SOEs and POEs, among other behavioral characteristics of both types of companies when conducting FDI abroad, linking that to CSAs and FSAs induced by CSAs.

  • A CRITICAL ASSESSMENT OF BRAZILIAN MANUFACTURING COMPETITIVENESS IN
           FOREIGN MARKETS
    • First page: 253
      Abstract: Competitiveness Review, Volume 27, Issue 3, May 2017.
      Purpose To Examine the competitiveness of firms operating in the emerging economy of Brazil. This study examines the current perception of Brazilian business leaders regarding the level of competitiveness in various sectors of industrial activity and the country’s business environment. Design/methodology/approach Survey data collected in a joint study developed by EBAPE and IBRE. The population surveyed was composed of businessmen, managers and directors of Brazilian manufacturing firms. This survey was created based on a similar survey conducted by the Harvard Business School, which was also aimed at identifying the reasons behind national loss of competitiveness. Findings The results of the survey point out that the worsening competitive nature of companies operating in Brazil can be primarily attributed to the deterioration of its country-specific advantages (CSA) and in particular those linked to government policies, services and bureaucratic procedures, all of which bear a negative impact on the country’s business environment. Research limitations/implications Future research should explore in more depth the specific types of initiatives that these firms have and are continuing to eagerly adopt with the aim of improving their domestic competitiveness and namely firm-specific advantages, whether it be by contributing to the improvement of the business environment as a whole, or by improving their own operations and management systems. Practical implications The main obstacles related to competitiveness are associated with the “Brazil Cost”, namely the tax system, infrastructure, political system, labor laws and bureaucracy that do not appear to offer much room for maneuvering in terms of reducing these barriers in the short term. Managers not addressing these important input factors of competitiveness not only divert attention away from innovation and creativity, but also could lead to more serious political, social welfare, and economic implications in the global marketplace. Originality/value Our research contribute to the understanding of the initiatives that could and are being used to improve firm competitiveness in Brazil. These initiatives contribute to a fruitful discussion about leading public policies and government actions geared towards upgrading Brazil’s business environment and country competitiveness as a whole.

  • Ascertaining the Competitiveness of Thai Exports to PRC
    • First page: 275
      Abstract: Competitiveness Review, Volume 27, Issue 3, May 2017.
      Purpose This study fundamentally focuses on the comparative advantage measurement as well as the trend of change in the international competitiveness of five Thai economic products exporting to the People’s Republic of China during the first half of the 2010s via the analysis of the revealed comparative advantage (RCA) index and market share. Design/methodology/approach The RCA index has been computed to show the comparative advantages of the product to a certain extent: whether a cost effective to produce that product in a certain location compared to opportunity cost of the resources in producing that product. The dataset of number and value of five important export products from Thailand to China during 2010 – 2013 have been obtained from the Thai Ministry of Commerce and Thai- Chinese Business Information Centre. Findings The study reveals that of these five important economic products, cassava has the highest comparative advantage and continues to have a rapid growth trend, whilst computer equipment and components has been shown to have comparative disadvantage and has the lowest comparative advantage index scores. Research limitations/implications Measuring with various sophisticated indices may provide clearer results. Also, according to unavailability of dataset, the four year period may not be able to show the long term trend of competitiveness. Future studies are encouraged to study in the longer term period with numerous indices. Practical implications The research also provides policy implications and measure to develop each sector in order to enhance competitiveness. Originality/value This is the original attempt to use both indices to assess the competitiveness of important Thai exports to Chinese market.

  • Emerging countries’ country-specific advantages (CSAs) and
           competitiveness of emerging market multinational enterprises (EMNEs)
    • First page: 194
      Abstract: Competitiveness Review, Volume 26, Issue 5, October 2016.
      Purpose A significant stream of literature focuses on host countries’ locations when explaining why firms internalize some of their activities in specific countries. At first glance, home location schemes and specificities seem to have attracted less attention in the scientific community. The purpose of this contribution is to provide a literature review linked to the specific issue of emerging countries’ country specific advantages (CSAs) and the competitiveness of emerging market multinational enterprises (EMNEs). Design/methodology/approach The approach is to present the main theoretical developments related to the role of home countries in the internationalization process of domestic firms in general and as far as the home context of emerging countries is concerned. Findings A rigorous analysis of the literature shows that theoretical developments and empirical studies on IB do refer explicitly or at least implicitly to the role of home countries in the international expansion of firms. Originality/value The value of this review is to develop the main streams of the literature and to serve as a basis for the other contributions published in this area.

  • The competitiveness of emerging country multinational enterprise. Does it
           derive from CSAs or FSAs?
    • First page: 208
      Abstract: Competitiveness Review, Volume 26, Issue 5, October 2016.
      Purpose This paper conducts a theoretical enquiry into the questions as to whether emerging country multinationals’ competitiveness derives from Country Specific Advantage (CSAs) or Firm specific Advantages (FSA). The case of China is also examined. Design/methodology/approach CSAs and FSAs are examined both in theory and in the specific case of China as explicators of outward foreign direct investment from emerging countries. Findings FSAs and CSAs are found to be imprecise explanatory mechanisms to explain the competitiveness of emerging country multinationals. The examination of imperfections in emerging markets and in global markets and the internalisation responses of firms in different contexts is found to be a superior explanation of the financial flows classified as “outward direct investment”. Originality/value Internalisation theory requires a focus on mechanisms to convert home country attributes into competitive advantages and suggests that FSAs are context dependent, ephemeral and subject to negation by the competitive actions of rival firms.
