In this paper, we aim to answer the following questions. Does the choice of internationalization locations by Chinese firms, specifically the mix of developing and developed country destinations, impact their performance? Are the performance implications different for the immediate term versus the longer term? Drawing from the organizational learning and transactions costs literatures, we argue that the costs and benefits of internationalization are contingent on the destination (or host) country characteristics (specifically, level of development) as well as time elapsed. Specifically, we argue that developing country MNCs entering other developing country MNCs will experience a short term boost in performance that, however, will get eroded over time. Entering developing countries will reduce short term performance but will boost long term performance because of learning effects and institutional advantages. Our analysis of 206 listed Chinese MNCs between 1992 and 2005 supports our key predictions.
