A multivariate test of the determination of market entry by economic and social characteristics..

  The social and economic characteristics of different countries affect market opportunities in complex ways. Moreover, since companies are not all the same their response to any set of characteristics increases the complexity of theorising about any general relationship between host countries and companies. The theoretical literature suggests that there is a positive relationship between degree of involvement and economic development and a negative relationship between cultural differences Hofstede (1980) and the degree of involvement in overseas markets. Using survey and World Bank data, we tested a single equation multivariate model to see if we can find statistical support for the theorised relationships.
