Multinational Enterprises from Asian Developing Countries : Management and Organizational Characteristics

by Francis M. Ulgado, Chwo-Ming Yu & Anant Negandhi

Abstract

The past decade has seen the rapid rise of multinationals from developing countries (TWMNEs). As TWMNEs continue to grow significantly in number as well as in size, they have to be considered an important factor in global business. This paper examines the operational management and organizational characteristics of Asian TWMNEs using an empirical study. The findings have indicted that Asian TWMNEs are not necessarily different from DCMNEs per se.
