In regard to the empirical contribution, the three interrelated studies provide practical guidance for Chinese firms who are eager to upgrade their internal knowledge base and competitiveness through international expansion. The first study explains what type of resource, market, and institution Chinese MNEs should pursue in more developed economies. The U-shaped curvilinear MP relationship found in second study can help Chinese firms' managers and strategy makers evaluate the opportunities and challenges they face at the current stage of internationalization, allocate resources effectively, and reap more benefits from the expansion process. The third study reveals the determining factors for the development of strategic resources in the context of Chinese MNEs, which offers advice to those that are in the process of internalization and seeking to obtain advanced capabilities.
