Abstract:

     A comprehensive review of the literature on MNEs’ strategy and structure suggests an important research gap, which is an intermediate level of analysis with a focus on the totality of an MNE’s subsidiaries within a single host country. By introducing the strategic roles of an MNE’s host country headquarters (HCHQ) in a large emerging market, we ask two questions: 1) How does the HCHQ facilitate an MNE’s within-host-country diversification? and 2) What determines the location choice of an MNE’s HCHQ? As an extension, we further ask another related question: How much does subnational location matter to foreign subsidiary performance? We address these questions in three empirical studies by using a large and longitudinal sample of MNEs’ foreign subsidiaries in China. We hope that this series of studies will help in generating a more complete picture of MNEs’ strategy, structure, and performance.
