    The Internationalization of Chinese Firms and Negative Media Coverage: The Case of Geely's Acquisition of Volvo Cars2017In: Thunderbird International Business Review, ISSN 1096-4762, E-ISSN 1520-6874, Vol. 59, no 4, p. 483-502Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Chinese firms are internationalizing at an unprecedented speed. One profound phenomenon linked to this active Chinese firms internationalization process is that the process tends to be confronted with negative media coverage of China and Chinese firms in Western countries. How to understand and cope with the negative image of China and Chinese firms, as they are often seen in the Western media, emerges as a relevant and timely research topic in the study of the internationalization of Chinese firms. The purpose of this article is to stimulate ideas for further research on the relations between the internationalization of Chinese firms and the media coverage. We use the case of Geely's acquisition of Volvo Cars, which was to a large extent negatively reported in the Swedish media during 2008-2013, as inspiration to identify the interesting research themes and questions. Given the increasing anti-globalization trend, we hypothesize that Chinese firms will have to face up to the reality of negative media coverage in many Western countries for the foreseeable future, at least in the firms' initial establishment phases. We end our paper with the managerial implications.

    Initial Internationalization of Chinese Privately Owned Enterprises - The Take-off Process2012In: Thunderbird International Business Review, ISSN 1096-4762, E-ISSN 1520-6874, Vol. 54, no 2, p. 183-194Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the first quarter of 2010 China showed the highest quarterly growth (12%) of any country ever. Although privately owned enterprises (POEs) are an important factor behind this immense growth, knowledge about how they have become key exporters is scarce and largely overlooked, especially regarding how they started to go abroad. Two major take-off processes from the domestic market to the foreign market are studied. The critical importance of the development of the local emerging market behind the possibilities of taking-off is stressed and how firms change between indirect and direct export modes. The research is based on an abductive case study research approach, where primary data is collected through interviews in the Yang-Tse River Region. The case study involves six privately-owned family firms run by strong and dominating entrepreneurs. Major empirical and theoretical conclusions including nine propositions summarize the article and indicate areas for further research.
