In this paper, we explore the individual and the joint impact of speed of internationalization and age on Chinese MNCs' performance. Drawing from the arguments about the learning advantages of newness and the learning advantages of fast-mover, we hypothesize that age will be negatively related to performance, while rapid expansion of FDI stock and geographic scope will be positively related to performance. We further predict that the impacts of young age and fast international expansion will be cumulative. Based on an analysis of internationalization strategies and performance of 207 Chinese MNCs for the period 1992-2005, we find support for our key predictions.
