Abstract

While the role of corporate governance has been increasingly analysed during recent years, it is only very recently that the effects of corporate governance features on firm international strategies have been also considered. Really, in their classical version neither TC economics nor the RBV consider the ownership type as a determinant of overall firm internationalisation. According to TC theory, the level of internationalisation is the result of the assessment of the costs and the benefits of coordinating international transactions internally by the management relative to those incurred through external coordination via the market. From the RBV perspective, a key driver of the diversification process is the existence of excess capacity, either of physical assets or knowledge, and one strategy through which the firm can exploit these underused resources is by entering foreign markets.
