From the Paper:

"Joint ventures describe the collaboration of a domestic with a foreign company in order to enter a target market. The domestic company is often used to provide market, customer and cultural information about its market, it can be used to get access to its distribution network and in some cases foreign governments might require the integration of a local company in order to grant access to their market. Partner skills can be integrated and special knowledge can be used to gain market benefits. And above all a lack of resources may make it necessary to find a partner in order to be able to enter a foreign market."
