Description:

This paper explains that one of the major findings of this research to analyze the internationalization strategies taken by Xerox, Ricoh and Canon to respond to challenges posed by China's emerging market was that cultural distance was a far less significant internationalization challenge in the Chinese office electronics industry than the literature review suggested. The author points out that the research confirmed the significance of administrative heritage and organizational structure as key internationalization challenges that firm's face including those in the Chinese office electronics industry. The paper indicates that the internationalization process leads to a network of international market activities through foreign direct investment and other forms of international business involvement and may result in the inter-dependencies of all multinational corporations in one host country, which is one important aspect of internationalization.

From the Paper:

"There are many local market conditions that could test a company's resolve to enter a new and unfamiliar market, which present themselves as key challenges to firms. The initial challenge comes in the form of entry barriers. Jennifer Rankin (2003) interprets these barriers in terms of the huge investment and risks that the undertaking entails. Moreover, the return on investment may take years to materialize. So if the company is a penny-pincher afraid to take risks and also in a hurry to recoup its investment, it might as well forget internationalization."
