Authors: Joanna Scott-Kennel and Michèle E. M. Akoorie
Published: MI Publishing, 2013

Emphasis is placed on a New Zealand perspective of international business strategy – both past and present – particularly in relation to the Asia Pacific Rim and beyond.

Key topics include: the rise of globalisation and recent trends in regionalisation; opportunities in emerging markets focusing on China and India; competitive positioning in the global business environment; internationalisation theory and trajectories; market entry modes including outsourcing; the theory of the MNE; forms of international strategy and structure; clusters and collaboration; the role of MNEs in economic restructuring; and sustainable strategy.
