Managing human resources in an advanced economy from the perspective of emerging Chinese multinationals: The case of NWII in Australia

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

This project is significant in that, despite a growing awareness of China's outward foreign direct investment (FDI), relatively little research has been conducted to understand its characteristics or implications for host countries. By examining the Australian and Chinese resource sectors, this project will provide important theoretical insights for human resource management and its relationship to firm performance. Further, the project will guide Chinese MNEs to manage a local workforce as well as develop a pool of competent expatriates who can implement their firm's globalisation strategies. This study will result in both practical and theoretical advances in our understanding of Chinese FDI.
