Objectives
To address on three issues: 1. How Chinese companies internationalising and investing in other host societies are adapting to the latters' culture, institutions and other aspects of their environments? In other words, how do these new transnational enterprises of Chinese capital adjust and reconcile the differences between their operations at home and in overseas business systems which they visit? 2. How such Chinese companies are managing the extended corporate networks which are liable to develop as they expand internationally and have their initial 'parochial' character diluted? 3. Are there any systematic and identifiable patters of intra-cultural diversities in management style and philosophy within the 'family' of Chinese companies which are internationalising, as fashioned by the specific Chinese home society in which they are based?
