This symposium is focused on providing a more systematic theoretical understanding of the globalization processes of Chinese firms. Each paper examines a different aspect of this critical phenomenon. They examine, a) the how diplomatic relations between nation states affects location choice of Chinese multinationals, particularly SOEs; b) how international research and development alliances affect Chinese firm innovation; c) the key capabilities by which Chinese firms "catch-up" to Western firm and d) a review of prior work on Chinese outward foreign direct investment that developed an integrated theoretical perspective on the phenomena. Thus, as a set, these papers cover Chinese firm globalization from a number of different perspectives, examining political dynamics, key innovation antecedents and a more general theoretical perspective. The overall goal is advancing theory on the globalization of Chinese firms.
