Entering Foreign Markets
Main Task: Assess and evaluate where, when and how firms enter foreign markets
Based on the section readings noted above, develop a scholarly paper to critically address the following:
· Pick an industry in which firms from your country are internationally active. What are the top five most favorite foreign markets for firms in this industry? Why?
· From institution-based and resource-based views, identify the liability of foreignness confronting MNEs from emerging economies interested in expanding overseas. How can such firms overcome them?
· Select a leading MNC, then analyze and evaluate its strategy to enter a foreign market. What strategy did the MNC uses to determine where to enter? What is the foreign market? How did the MNC determine when to enter the foreign market? And how did the MNC enter the foreign market? Use the “Comprehensive Model of Foreign Market Entry” from your textbook (Peng, 2014, p. 159) to respond to these discussion questions.
