Question 1

From the reading I get an overview of key insights generated in the literature on regional strategies. It outlines a number of new research agendas for the future international strategic scholarship to launch at the national and global level and at the regional and regional levels at the third and third geographical levels.

Regional Strategy Analysis focuses on the fundamentals of mainstream theories such as international strategies, such as integration, inter-agency and internal theory, its source-based approach, elements of transaction costs, and the integration (I) -International Response (NR) framework.  By studying the Rigman and Verbeck’s JIBS article I get an overview of the international strategic management about the trajectory of the MNE strategy,

Followed by regional and multinational corporations (MNEs) and subsequent regional multinational firms. It is permanent. I concentrate on gaining the answers of the two questions. First, where do international business opportunities arise? Second, how can MNEs respond to these national opportunities and create a strong and clean (FSA) conventional reservoir, which will ensure sustainable and profitable growth, can raise?

The general idea in terms of international strategy and wider society is that internationally-managed companies scan the world for business opportunities and respond to these countries’ opportunities through extensive geographical deployment.

I perceived that it should be followed by a strategy. Even MNEs need to scan the world at nearby host locations to identify locally embedded entities (especially knowledge) and blend in with their existing entities (Ivanaj, et al. 2017).

In fact I learnt that Multinational companies have focused on success in foreign markets, and only nine Fortune Global 3 (acquired data) companies have achieved unbalanced sales distribution worldwide.

These nine companies include Canon, Coca-Cola, Flextronics, IBM, Intel, LVMH, Nokia, Philips and Sony. With only nine FSAs in these large MNEs, perhaps a global company (this particular number suggests that Fortune Global 500 companies provide limited “non-positional borders” to sell the majority in the country. Observation) is more important than existence.

Question 2

At the time of exploring a number ofimportant concepts that the above mentioned observations encouraged for research about the international strategic management, I found it most difficult.

In particular, based on the apparent importance of regional boundaries, some conceptual frameworks of international management, such as the theory of internal management and the integrated national response to business school curriculum (I-NR) paradigms, need to be revisited.

All of these are regarded as the conceptual frameworks by means of which issues related to financing inter-agency resources are addressed and this also define the spatial transaction costs to manage the patters of external business or MNEs internal networks.

Due to the rapid changing of the world,it becomes difficult to predict what our future will be, and for those who promise to have a clear vision for the future, we naturally need to be vigilant, therefore we are far from crystal bowling efforts.

This is because it is assumed that it is not as effective as the idea behind future control. Yet, it is believed that sometimes the future, the current evolution and its major features, and our story tell it so (ESPOSITO & TSE, 2018).

Question 3

This article helps me to understand the co-evolution of external and internal firms within the activities and organizations of the MNE. This analysis creates a theoretical framework that addresses the complex forms of uncertainty associated with the growing inter connectedness of the global economy,

focusing on the recent work of Douglass Northand the co-evolution of technology and resources by Richard Nelson.

The article as well helps me to combineessential modifications in terms of the characteristics of the activities of MNEs with the modifications of the institutional environment. It is argued by the article that a major driver of institutional initiatives is the cumulativeindependence of subsidiaries of MNEs.

The MNE Agency is based on more decentralized empirical testing of international corporate networks and co-develops new venture efficiency enhancement nodes with local companies. In contrast to other streams of literature, institutional change’s pattern in terms of the broader business system has been linked to the testing and analysis of a variety of internal and external distinct entities.

This evolutionary co-evolution analysis is becoming more and moresignificant in order to comprehend the interconnections among the multinational business operations and demographics (Demirbag, et al. 2020).

Question 4:

The pace of change and the sudden change are even more convincing and impressive in that they are historically interdependent in both history and economics, in ways we have never felt before. The composition of this essay is evolutionary and experimental. Operating systems in our world are constantly being rewritten by interruptions, adaptations, sudden accelerations and unexpected frustrations.

For those who believe in the Co-op paradox, their prediction seems to be satisfactory. And none of the above appears to be gradual or provide initial signs. Often, one will be lucky to get a trailer before the big event, but in most cases, people are lucky enough to survive the event. This is probably best summarized by the CEO.

According to the CEO, “The surrounding business is changing so fast that CEOs must make the right business decisions in a very short time. At the same time, everything looks very uncertain, not high.”(Cantwell, et al.2010).

Question 5:

If the authors were present I would ask them that whethera significant role in generating globalization processes is played by the multinational corporations and financial institutions, including banks and investment funds or not.
