External Finance and the Foreign Direct Investment Decision: Evidence from Privately Owned Enterprises in China
International Journal of the Economics of Business, 2015, vol. 22, issue 1, 23-45
Access to external finance is found to be a statistically significant factor explaining the probability of privately owned enterprises (POEs) in China undertaking foreign direct investment (FDI). The significance of external finance is magnified in industries featuring a heavy dependence on external finance, high technology, low tangibility, and high inventory. The external finance and FDI linkage is weaker for POEs with group affiliation, but stronger for those with generous employment welfare practices.
