  • Effect of International Entrepreneurial Orientation on the
           Internationalization of SMEs: The Contingent Effect of Export Promotion
           Programs

    • Abstract: The study argues that the role of export promotion programs (EPPs) is indirectly exhibited by enhancing the influence of managerial and organizational resources on the internationalization of SMEs. This study proposes that the dimensions of international entrepreneurial orientation (innovativeness, pro-activeness and risk-taking) will show varied strengths as predictors of the internationalization of SMEs’ with the influence of EPPs. Using structural equation modeling, data collected from 266 exporting SMEs in Nigeria were analyzed and it is concluded that SMEs’ risk-taking in internationalization increases with participation in EPPs. Similarly, there was an increase in innovativeness among internationalizing SMEs with increased participation in EPPs. Finally, participation in EPPs did not show any impact in pro-activeness attribute towards internationalization of SMEs. This study demonstrates the supportive role of institutions in SMEs’ managerial capacity building in overcoming internationalization challenges by developing the culture of risk taking and innovativeness.

  • Listing and Value: A Cross-Country Analysis in the Energy Sector

    • Abstract: The study aims to fill a gap in the literature on the impact of listing on value. Most of the relevant literature analyzes the impact of listing by focusing on the financial performance of companies. The innovative aspect of this study lies in considering value as a combination of return on equity and risk profile, the latter reflected in the cost of capital. So, in this analysis value is ascertained with the ROE-ke measure. We compare listed companies vis-à-vis their unlisted peers in the energy sector. Data are extracted from Amadeus and covers the period from 2015 to 2017. The empirical investigation considers the following areas: profitability (ROE); cost of equity (ke) and value (ROE-ke). We observe statistically significant differences between listed and unlisted companies. In particular, listed companies show lower cost of equity but they also have lower profitability than unlisted companies. Furthermore, results highlight that listing has a negative impact on shareholder value: listed companies have negative ROE-ke or they register less ROE-ke if compared with unlisted peers. This research has several limitations, for example, having considered a relatively short period of time. Future developments of this work may overcome some limitations by taking into account more recent years and using additional variables such as governance, financial structure, operations in the renewable energy sector, size.

  • Business Efficiency Evaluation of Machine Tool Manufacturers by Data
           Envelopment Analysis (DEA): A Case Study of Taiwanese Listed Machine Tool
           Companies

    • Abstract: Data envelopment analysis (DEA) is widely used to measure the business efficiency of many industries, among which the Taiwanese machine tool industry is well-known for its complete supply-chain system. Relying on DEA and Malmquist Productivity Index to analyze the business efficiency of Taiwanese listed machine tool manufacturers from 2018 to 2019, this study compared the changes in their business efficiencies and productivities. According to the five change indicators of Malmquist, only the technical efficiency, pure technical efficiency, and scale efficiency of the overall industry posted some growth during the research period, showing that the whole industry is actively improving its technical efficiency and striving to achieve the scale efficiency. However, technical change and total factor productivity declined slightly, indicating that the industry still makes more technical progress. Thus, companies should adjust their inputs and outputs to improve the production boundary for technical progress. The purposes of this study are to identify the success factors of the excellent performance of manufacturers and the benchmarking indicators of the decision-making unit on the efficient frontier results to provide some references for formulating future business strategies and direction.

  • Determinant Factors of Health Financing Among Public and Private Sector in
           Malaysia

    • Abstract: Health is a necessity for human well-being and productive. Hence, access to healthcare when needed is considered by many to be a basic human right. Therefore, it is important to invest in health financing to ensure access to healthcare for future needs, such as medical expenses. The current study aims to investigate the factors that influence employee spending on health financing in the public and private sectors in Malaysia. Further, we also examine whether the intention to spend on health financing differs between public and private sector employees. Multiple regression analysis and an independent-samples T-test were applied using SPSS to achieve this objective. Findings of this study reveal that employer and social influence factors influence the intention to spend on health financing in both sectors. Meanwhile, job factors only influence employees in the public sector to spend on health financing. We also found that the intention to spend on health financing differs between public and private sector employees.

  • The Multiple Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on China‚Äôs Oil Security
           and the Rising Green Opportunities

    • Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has seriously challenged the global oil market, and coronavirus-induced oil prices crash, oil demand decline and global economic recession affect China’s oil supply as well. China has high oil vulnerability due to its rising oil import dependency which aggravates Beijing’s concerns about oil security, despite at a time of the pandemic-induced oil oversupply. This study uses the SWOT analytical model to identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in China’s oil sector, and the changes in opportunities and threats caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has brought multiple impacts to China’s oil security. Results from the analysis show that the existing opportunities such as oil investments in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and domestic upstream opening-up have been weakened; new threats that the uncertainty over global oil demand-supply and decrease in global upstream investments have emerged; opportunities that an increase in domestic strategic petroleum reserve (SPR) and low-carbon development are rising amid the pandemic. Notably, the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the vulnerability of the global oil market to systemic risks and accelerated the transition to renewable energy.

  • Achieving Long Term Sustainability through Green Process Innovation: A
           Study on Small Packaging Companies in the UK

    • Abstract: Packaging is increasingly considered as dominating environmental issue in the last two decades and has forced many global businesses to reconsider the true function of their packaging. Manufacturing flexibility and efficiency are considered highly competitive for industrial success. However, several packaging organizations are trying to see the packaging problem from the aspect of sustainability and in the 21st century, the word “green” and sustainability have become essential adjectives for the packaging industry. To maintain environmental impact and sustainability together, packaging has required clear directions to address challenges, while addressing environmental issues that result from packaging waste. Packaging operations for small firms is a costly and timely endeavour and there is no crystal-clear guideline for small firms to get the most from their existing processes. Green process innovation is seen as an efficient solution that can help society and businesses to deal with environmental problems but green process innovation popularity among researchers is not prominent. With having very little information on green process innovation this research considers various elements to bridge the sustainable framework. Based on the analysis this research identifies the key implementations and develops a framework of sustainable green process innovation. This research also discusses the limitations and provide greater insight on the implementation of green process innovation in the small packaging business.
