abstract

  • This paper suggests that Chinese attitudes towards joint ventures are organized around critical expectations regarding: (1) the foreign parent’s provision of key resources, and (2) the local venture’s managerial autonomy. An exploratory survey of Chinese managers offers some support for the proposition that more Western attitudes are found among managers that expect both resources and autonomy, while more traditional attitudes seem to prevail among those expecting neither. © 1991 by The Haworth Press, Inc.
