Contrôle multidimensionnel d’une filiale à l’étranger:construction d’un modèle causal à partir du cas des multinationales européennes et japonaises en Chine

    () (Université de Poitiers)


(VF) Une revue de littérature et un échantillon de 316 filiales en Chine conduisent à la construction théorique et la validation empirique d’un modèle causal permettant d'étudier comment les multinationales européennes et japonaises combinent les mécanismes de contrôle de leurs filiales en Chine. L'objectif de vendre ou de produire en Chine influe sur le mode d'entrée:coentreprise internationale ou filiale à 100 %. La part du capital et l'envoi d’expatriés sont deux instruments de contrôle positivement liés. (VA) A review of the literature and a sample of 316 subsidiaries in China allow us to construct a theoretical framework and to examine its empirical validity. The causal model hence obtained helps to explain how European and Japanese multinationals combine different control mechanisms which they apply to their subsidiaries in China. The objective to either sell or produce in China influences the entry mode:international joint venture or wholly owned subsidiary. The share of capital and the sending of expatriates are two positively linked control mechanisms.
