AbstractEmerging economies are becoming the major players in the outward foreign direct investments (OFDIs) market yet few studies have systematically investigated what factors trigger the timing of their foreign investments. Invoked on the strategy tripod perspective, we have replicated and extended a prior study published on Journal of International Business Studies by examining how resource-, industry-, and institution-contingencies affect the timing decisions of Chinese listed firms investing in U.S. between year 2009 and 2013. The empirical results have confirmed the generalizability of strategy tripod framework in the phenomenal context of new flow of investments from emerging to developed economies and in the new outcome variable of timing. What is more, the three batches of factors are not equally important in explaining the strategic decisions made by firms in emerging contexts in contrast to those in developed countries while more variables that capture the institutional characteristics are needed to complement the theoretical model.
