Abstract

[Extract] During the colonial period, early international corporations exploited land and labor in much of Asia (Alatas 1977; Breman 1989; Murray 1992). Nodal points of communication and command structures helped control far-flung territorial resources and trade (Jones & Wale 1998). However, after World War II, businesses and business organizational modles became more agile (Doz & Kosonen 2010) in their profit-seeking activities, focusing on establishing strategic business production facilities to access markets, with an intention of transferring technology or merely assisting developing countries in their economic vitality and engagement in global trade (Amsden 2001; Madison 2007).
