Abstract

Building upon the theoretical foundations provided by the international economics and industrial economics literature, this study examines the multivariate and univariate effects of industry structure attributes and firm competence components on the performance of foreign-funded enterprises operating in a transitional economy (People's Republic of China). It is found that industry attractiveness and firm competence are both critical to international investment performance. It is also observed that different industry and firm-level variables influence differentially the various dimensions of performance.
