The Determinants of FDI in the Manufacturing Industry in China - Case Studies of Taiwanese SMEs
Chao, Pin-Ching (2011) The Determinants of FDI in the Manufacturing Industry in China - Case Studies of Taiwanese SMEs. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
Due to the trend of economic globalisation and Taiwan’s deteriorating business environment, Taiwanese manufacturers have lost their competitive advantages in cost production to international rivals; this impact is especially strong for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Along with the theories and empirical evidence developed by previous scholars, this research examines the significant determinants of FDI practices and the timely entry of Taiwanese manufacturing SMEs. In addition, the case studies also provide a complete explanation of the forces perceived by these firms and the phenomena of their disproportionate level of FDI investments toward China as well as the demonstration of the real-world considerations and strategies employed by the firms beyond the associated literature.
