Motivations of Chinese SOEs and NSOEs internationalisation: a conceptual framework

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contributionpeer-review


Increasing outward foreign direct investment (FDI) from China's extractive industries, particularly its mining sector, is becoming one of the more dramatic aspects of globalisation in the new millennium State-owned enterprises (SOEs) are playing a vital role in China's economic growth and development However, more and more non-state-owned enterprises (NSOEs) are joining this stream Emerging market outward FDI from extractive industries presents an interesting challenge to established FDI theory, which largely evolved though research highlighting the manufacturing activities of large multinational corporations (MNCs) from developed countries. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to develop a conceptual framework which will facilitate a better understanding of the causes, strategies and implications of the internationalisation of firms from China's mining sector.
