AbstractChina’s recent national policy known as “One Belt One Road” (OBOR) has provided great incentives for Chinese firms to speed up the pace of internationalization. But very few international business (IB) studies have been found to deal with the policy-related international expansion (strategy) and performance of firms in such a dramatic institutional change. This study is among the first to study their internationalization process using two types of Chinese sub-national (i.e., Uygur’s and Han’s) firms in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region under the context of OBOR. We propose that the (firm) owner’s internality is intertwined with the externality of OBOR policy to jointly affect their exporting performance. As such, the Uygur’s firms should perform better than the Hans’ counterparts in exporting to Central Asia regional markets, and the former also have clear advantages over the latter in further promoting foreign direct investment (FDI) activities in the markets.
