Description of the Thematic Issue
BACKGROUND: Since its “opening” nearly 40 years ago, China has been attracting foreign entrepreneurs. Now, being the world’s second-largest economy, a member of the World Trade Organization as well as other global and regional economic blocks and cooperation agreements, the country remains a magnet for businesspeople from all around the world. During the process of China’s impressive economic development foreign entrepreneurs played an important role contributing to the advancement of technology and management practices in China. Yet, while learning from abroad still plays an important role, the focus has been shifting towards development of Chinese own knowledge and enhancing Chinese innovation. Successive Five-Year Plans and state policies explicitly focus on the development of Chinese technologies, patents, know-how, and brands. AIMS The aim of this thematic issue of the Entrepreneurial Business and Economic Review (EBER) is to understand the changing role of foreign entrepreneurs in China with regard to the international diffusion of knowledge, management practices and innovation.
