Choice of Market Entry Mode is Contingent on Environment: Integrating the Resource Dependence and Contingency Theory Perspectives Samia Tariq

Choice of Market Entry Mode is Contingent on Environment: Integrating the Resource Dependence and Contingency Theory Perspectives

Author (s)

Samia Tariq

Abstract

Selection of the appropriate entry mode for internationalization is a crucial decision. Global firms contemplating foreign direct investment may incur huge costs due to wrong selection of entry mode. Environment, as a non-controllable factor, should guide these firms to choose a pertinent entry mode. This conceptual paper provides key propositions of the potential impact of entry mode selection on the success of the firm, building on resource dependency theory and contingency theory. The study proposes that the choice of entry mode selection by internationalizing Chinese firms, targeting developing as well as developed economies, is contingent on the level of environmental uncertainty and risk profile of the host country. The study highlights significant environmental factors as prime determinants of the selection of an entry mode. The proposed framework can serve as a guideline for global firms to choose the host market depending on the nature of environmental factors. Choosing right entry mode will help them to reduce failures arising from the wrong choice of entry mode. Future empirical studies should test the framework to add to the international business literature.

Outward FDI of Mainland Chinese MNEs: Its Drivers and the Way Forward from the Resource Dependence and Political Economy Perspectives Tariq Hameed Alvi

Outward FDI of Mainland Chinese MNEs: Its Drivers and the Way Forward from the Resource Dependence and Political Economy Perspectives

Author (s)

Tariq Hameed Alvi

Abstract

This study contends that Resource Dependence Theory and Political Economy are pertinent perspectives to investigate drivers of Outward FDI from China by integrating them with other frameworks such as OLI-Framework, Collusion-and-Rivalry Framework, and Three-Stage Model of OFDI for Developing Countries. In so doing, it develops four fundamental propositions. First, OFDI from China will grow further in the coming years. Second, China’s increasing emphasis on North-Atlantic is attributed to the intent of Chinese MNEs to move to the higher end of the value chain. Third, the Chinese MNEs will move to more market-driven transactions after Chinese MNEs become prevalent in international markets. Fourth, Chinese MNEs will focus more on services than manufacturing in the years to come. The author hopes that these propositions will encourage empirical research on OFDI from China. The accuracy of these propositions, however, is contingent on the harmonious relationship between China and the host countries.

Key words: Multinational Enterprises (MNEs), Outward Foreign Direct Investment (OFDI), Inward Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), Chinese state-owned enterprises (SOEs), Resource Dependence Theory (RDT), OLI-Framework, Collusion-and-Rivalry framework, and Three-stage model of OFDI.

The impact of exchange rate regime on Balance of payments in Namibia AFOLABI Tunde Ahmed & NANKELA Ndinelago Monika

The impact of exchange rate regime on Balance of payments in Namibia

Author (s)

AFOLABI Tunde Ahmed & NANKELA Ndinelago Monika

Abstract

The central purpose of this paper is to analyze the impact of exchange rate regime on Balance of payments in Namibia and to determine whether this arrangement is beneficial or not for Namibia. For this concern, the paper uses the VECM method of estimation with two equations with yearly data covering the period of 1990 and 2018. The empirical results indicated that there is a negative statistically significance relationship between REER and export also between REER and FDI leading then into the expensiveness of the local production of goods & services in international markets and lose competitiveness hence worsening the BoP. On the other hand, when REER depreciates foreign direct investment flows to Namibia increases. Despite the two results, FDI is the key vital engine for Namibia’s export. This can be noticed in the mining sector which is the main sector whose Namibia’s export is dependent on. The paper suggests that, pegging to the rand is an appropriate exchange rate regime for Namibia. However, Namibia should consider exploring macro-economic policy independence and be involved in the determination of exchange rate within the CMA framework in order to avoid further deterioration of BoP. The paper also further suggested that Namibia should reduce its dependency on import by promoting the base of its manufacturing and other sectors as this will help to protect itself from changes in foreign price developments particularly from South Africa. The study will help the Namibian policies makers to pay a closer attention to exchange rate regime policies and the researchers in their academic works.

Key words: Exchange Rate regime, Export, FDI, GDP and VECM.

Abstract

The objective of the study was to characterize natural production environment of Ogaden cattle breed. Questionnaire used for the study was designed using the general information developed by FAO (2012). 3 districts and 6 kebeles were purposely and 126 cattle keepers were randomly selected for data collection. The studied variables were farming, cattle breeding practice, purpose of keeping, selection criteria, feeding, health care and veterinary service, income and non-income function, and cattle production constraints. SAS version 9.2, 2008 software was used for data analysis. 30.16% were pastoral while 69.84% were agro-pastoral. Significant difference seen between districts in crop land holding, but no significant difference between districts in forage land holding. Cattle keepers prefer to keep local Ogaden cattle breed and were practicing pure breeding. Majority of them do not produce adequate pasture.  They treat diseased animals by traditional method (57.94%). Male cattle were kept for socio-cultural purpose whilst female cattle were kept for milk production. None of the agro-pastoral respondents have recalled that they use draught power and manure of cattle. Cow milk in the study area has taken the first line consumed by the livestock owners and generating daily income for their family need among other livestock products making cattle the most important livestock species. Prolonged feed shortage was the first cattle production constraint.  The cattle keeping society in the studied area appeared to have distinct culture and tradition of keeping and utilization cattle.

Key words: characterization, natural, Ogaden cattle breed, production environment, traditional disease treatment methods.

Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the effects of Snail supplemented diet on production performances of Japanese quail. A total of 120, day old quails were assigned into four groups T0, T1, T2 and T3, each group contained 10 birds with 3 replication. Group T0 was considered as control formulated diet without snail. Groups T1, T2 and T3 fed also formulated diet supplemented with 1%, 2% and 3% snail respectively. Live body weight, body weight gain, plasma calcium and phosphorus level were determined at the age of 15, 30, 45 and 60 days of quail. Number of egg, egg weight, yolk and albumin index, Egg shape index, parameters were started from the day of 45 to end of the experiment. Although of the T1 on day 30, 45 & 60 live body weights were not significantly (p>0.05) increased, the birds of T2 and T3 were  significantly increased from the control birds without snail. Number of egg, egg weight, yolk and albumin index, Egg shape index were almost similar among different treatment groups. Plasma Calcium and phosphorus level were higher among the treatment groups compared to the control and differed significantly (p<0.01). The present study revealed that the supplementation of snail in the quail feed ration were effective improve the performance in quail.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to develop a model for management education in public schools. The education comprises several actors and aspects that involve political processes, operational and teaching. There is a tendency to treat the school management in public schools only from a political point of view and pedagogical, reducing the importance of the management procedures, which impairs the school autonomy and reduces the empowerment of the environment as a space the construction of competences to exercise full citizenship. To outline the procedures, the first step was to use a bibliometric research, measuring the network of relationships between authors, year of publication of articles and density, in the second moment was performed a content analysis and confirmatory factorial to identify the relationship of words in the group and between the groups, finally it was proposed a model for school management. Due to these characteristics, this study is a theoretical essay. As a conclusion, the model of the wheel of school management, has 17 items to be observed in the management. This study can be applied in school management, primarily the public.

Democratization in Bangladesh: Past, Present and Future

Author (s)

Muhammad Faridul Alam

Abstract

Bangladesh, after the emergence as an independent state in 16 December, 1971, has not yet been able to glorify itself as a strong democratic nation thought having a wealthy history of democratic struggle. Although there are difficulties in performing democratic practice, the people of Bangladesh are always inspired by democratic ideals and democratic political system as their cherished desires. The liberal democratic  system which has been performed in the West is a distinct theory here, however the fundamental freedom of the people are not realized due to political tensions and lack of consensus on national interest among the major political parties. Thus though having the possibilities of enriching the democratic values and ensuring the development, the process is being hindered. This article will analyze the gradual evolution of democratic movement, problems of present democratic system as well as the prospects of democracy in Bangladesh.

Abstract

This paper evaluated the 2017 Presidential order and the challenges of the Nigeria Maritime Sector as it hampered the smooth, efficient and effective running of the activities within the maritime sector. These challenges ranges from operational delays, marine theft or robbery, hijacking or kidnapping, piracy, militancy, illegal maritime operations and the likes. The implications are enormous as they have over the years significantly impacted negatively on critical sector of the economy ranging from transportation, production, oil and gas sectors and more importantly, threatened the growth and advancement of the regional maritime trade. This paper adopted several literatures and from their assessment and analysis, it was found that, significant relationship existed between the presidential order and the ease of doing business within the maritime sector. The study also found that there is a significant relationship between the presidential order and infrastructural development of the maritime sub-systems. It was also recommended that going forward, government’s approach to maritime policies and issues should be devoid of any form of ad-hoc, fire brigade or kill-and –go methods that have never helped us in this part of the globe. Hence, stakeholders’ engagement is dimmed necessary for an effective, efficient and sustainable maritime security and safety to prompt maritime operational activities.

Democracy, good governance and development in the nascent democracies: A case study of Nigeria’s fourth republic

Author (s)

Bright IGHOROJEH & Biliamin Adekunle ADEYEYE

Abstract

Since its debut in the Greek city state of Athens in the 5th century, Democracy has grown to become one of the most popular forms of government among nations of the word. Overtime too, a common notion suggestive of a positive correlation between democracy, good governance and development seems to have emerged amongst scholars and politicians such that democracy is now considered as a measure of good governance and a catalyst for development. Nigeria chose the path of democracy at independence in 1960. Since then, Nigeria has had four attempts at democratic governance amidst fits of military coup and interregnum. The aim of this paper is to test the veracity of the seemingly held notion of a positive correlation between democracy, good governance and development against evidence based positions in the nascent democracy of Nigeria’s fourth republic. The study observed some deficits of some vital ingredients in the nature and practice of democracy in Nigeria and the fundamentals being the issues of accountability and transparency needed for growth and development in any nation. The study situates the low level development and lack of a positive correlation between democracy, good governance and development on the problems of accountability and transparency in the practice of democracy in Nigeria. The study submits that these problems are not the result of lack of requisite statutes but of statute enforcement. Appropriate recommendations were provided to tackle these problems in order to facilitate much needed growth and development in Nigeria.

Key words: Democracy, Good Governance, Development, Electoral Fraud, Accountability.

Md. Dulal Mahmud & Sabina Yeasmin

Abstract

ICT has been a contributing factor in social change and thus leading to development in education. It provides greater access to target learners both on campus as well as the distant learners and has become a vehicle for enriched pedagogical experiences. Education system is still to exploit the full potential of ICT for optimizing human learning. In a developing country like Bangladesh, the question is to bridge the big gap between the ‘have’ and the ‘have not’, which has led to the euphoria of introducing ICT in education. ICT and ODL (Open and Distance Learning) have a symbolic relationship. However, its usage is mainly hampered by low speed, inadequate skills and less awareness of how online technology can improve the productivity, creativity and quality of knowledge work. Today ICT has entered the arena of e-governance starting from ICT literacy and social development. But it has still far from classrooms to create a classroom revolution. It has not percolated to the deeper levels of educational functioning due to various reasons. It is yet to become a culture in the educational sector of Bangladesh. This paper brings into lights the importance of ICT in education, highlights the emerging trends in and various impacts of ICT on primary and secondary education in general and tertiary education in particular, analyzes challenges and opportunities, explore potential future developments and suggests adoption of future strategies so that the nation can prepare its upcoming generations to become global citizens, who can communicate across culture, time and space.

Abstract

Happiness is the main aim of peoples in the world irrespective of their color, occupation, age and nationalities. Recognizing the similar meaning with subjective wellbeing, quality of life and life satisfaction, happiness has become a novel research theme for all researchers in all disciplines. The paper “GDP Growth and Income Paradoxical Relation to Happiness” is an innovative study in the field of happiness economics. The main objectives of this study are to show the relation between GDP growth and Income on happiness. Besides, this study shows the relations of HDI and economic freedom on happiness. The study analyzes the panel data from 2008 to 2016 covering China and South Asian countries. The main predicted variable of this study is happiness and major interested predictors are the GDP growth, GDP per capita, Human Development Index (HDI), economic freedom, life expectancy at birth and Gini. In addition to this, the paper estimated the relation between income and economic freedom, GDP growth and GDP per capita with inequality.  The estimation strategy is to apply fixed and random effect and found the negative association between GDP growth rate and happiness but, in contrast, the study found the positive association between GDP per capita and happiness. The result found that negative association between the human development index and happiness and strong positive association and statistically significant between freedom of life choices and happiness. The study found the negative association between Gini and happiness and both negative and positive effect of life expectancy and economic freedom on happiness.

Literature Review on Social Cohesion and Economic Growth Fahad Khalid

Literature Review on Social Cohesion and Economic Growth

Author (s)

Fahad Khalid

Abstract

The study provides a deep insight on the relationship between social cohesion and economic growth on the basis of existing literature. The study has categorized the different dimensions of social cohesion on the base of prevailing studies and elaborated their impact on economic growth in an articulated way. We have found after review of literature that, though social cohesion is defined in different dimension and various studies have used diverse indicators to measure the level of social cohesion but there is absence of any comprehensive measure of social cohesion to better understanding the impact of social cohesion on economic growth. So there is need to do more research to analyze the impact of social cohesion on economic growth through a more comprehensive measure which contains all the indicators describe in different definition of social cohesion. The research is helpful for governments to device policy measures to promote social cohesion in the society.

Assessing the Factors Affecting Management Systems in Nigeria and Mitigating the Negative Effects

Author (s)

Egbuwe Titilola I. & Amah Edwinah

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to assess the various factors affecting the management systems in Nigeria and how to mitigate the negative effects. It reconnoiters the origin and development of contemporary management in the country and the challenges today managers face in a multi-cultural and multi-lingua society. Nigeria is assailed by factors of disunity and snaillike development which alter the essentials of management theories. Leveraging Geert Hofstede’s six cultural models and its empirical studies on Nigeria’s cultural conditioning and its practical insinuations. Geert Hofstede’s models provide a framework for understanding the impact of cultural differences of management of different countries, the comprehensive studies evaluate how corporate management is influenced by culture. This paper builds on academic contributions on comparative management, comparing the western management culture of United States of America and United Kingdom systems to that of Nigeria.  It reveals the extent to which culture limits the effectiveness of practical managerial concepts in corporate Nigeria.

Abstract

The study intended to identify how long-term financing influences development of Small and Medium enterprises (SMEs). It focused on MPK Graphics as a case study. The purpose of the study was to establish the impact of long-term financing on development of SMEs in Uganda. The research design was descriptive and the study used both quantitative and qualitative research approach. Stratified and purposive samplings were used to select respondents. The data collected was analyzed using SPSS version 22.0. Descriptive analysis was used to draw the picture of the respondents, Pearson correlation was used to test the relationship between the study variables, while regression analysis was used to test the effect between the variables of the study. Therefore, factor analysis was employed to determine long-term financing dimensions in small and medium enterprises in Uganda. The major findings of the study were that there was a positive relationship between Long term financing and Development of SMEs in Uganda (r = 0.751, P-value < 0.01); a positive relationship between financial performance and Development of SMEs in Uganda (r = 0.436, P-value < 0.01) and showed (R= 0.810) in a combination of Long term financing, financial performance in assessing the level to which they can predict the level of Development of SMEs in Uganda. These variables explained 59.7 per cent of the variance of Development of SMEs (R Square =.597). The most influential predictor of Development of SMEs was Long term financing (β = .622, Sig. 294). Long-term finance frequently defined as all funding for a time frame exceeding one year may contribute to faster growth, greater welfare, shared prosperity, and enduring stability in two important ways: by reducing rollover risks for borrowers, thereby lengthening the horizon of investments and improving performance.

Geotechnical Characterization for Slope Stability Analyses of Noseri and Sandhok Landslides

Author (s): 

Raja Khurram Mahmood Khan, Md Nasir Uddin, Fahad Saleem, Zeeshan khan

Abstract

Landslide is a global geological hazard because of its high frequency and wide loss distribution. Two major landslides situated in Azad Kashmir along Neelum valley road were selected for this study. The region has active faults, experienced earthquakes, heavy rain, and snowfall. Consequently, landslides have caused many deaths in the past decades and have frequently damaged roads, infrastructures, agricultural lands, and dense forest cover. The present study deals with geotechnical studies of soil and rock for pre-stability analyses of the Noseri and Sandhok landslides with a special focus to find out the reasons for slope failure. Finally, remedial measures for landslide stability are put forward. The study includes field investigations, comprising site geomorphology and characteristics of each site, and laboratory tests involving physical and engineering properties of soil. The results show that rainfall has no obvious effect on the landslides, whereas varying temperature has a little impact on their failure. It is concluded that the instability of Noseri landslide may be related to seismic activities, and slope failure occurs along the active fault zones as it lies along the hanging wall of the thrust fault (MBT). While, Sandhok landslide may be caused by fractures and cracks occurred under tectonic stresse.

An Analysis of the Impact of GDP, Trade openness, Inflation rate and Market size in Attracting Inward FDI in Bangladesh Based on Empirical Analysis

Author (s): 

Md Kamrul Hasan & Nurun Nahar Nishi

Abstract

This study aims to find out the impact of different variables like MKTS, GDP, TO and INFR in attracting FDI in Bangladesh. Using various statistical test like Augmented Dickey- Fuller (ADF) Unit Root Test, Phillips- Perron (PP) Unit Root Test, Granger Casuality Test & Ordinary Least Square Method (OLS Method), this research has found that some variables has positive influence in attracting FDI in Bangladesh where some variables has negative relation with FDI. Data has been analyzed by EViews in OSL regression method and it is found that OLS regression is 0.924341 that indicates 92% representing the variation in independent variables can explain 92% variation in attracting inward FDI. P value for MKTS and GDP is less that 5% that means MKTS and GDP has an impact on FDI and they are statistically significant. OLS regression analysis for another two variables- TO and INFR is not statistically significant as the P value is greater than 5% but they have negative relationship with FDI.   This study is actually to make up a decision whether the variables can accelerate the trend of attracting FDI in respect of Bangladesh. Furthermore, this research will show the way to government how to deal with the investors. Therefore , this study is needed to sort the present economic situation of Bangladesh & figure out the most probable reasons & technique to attract more FDI in the country with future research in this field.

Key words: Bangladesh, Foreign Direct Investment, Positive influence, EViews, OSL method, GDP.

Abstract

We examine the effect of part-time employment on students’ academic performance using primary data collected from randomly selected 108 students of Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science and Technology University (HSTU), Dinajpur. We estimate the impact of both work participation and work intensity of student involved in part time job on academic performance using ordinary least square (OSL) method. The regression results show that there is a significant negative relationship between work participation and academic performance of the students. Further, it was observed that the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) declines with increment hours in part time employment.

Author (s): 

Alaegbu Anastecia Nkeiru & Barisua Fortune Nwinee

Abstract

Decision-making is fundamentally a function of a company’s top members’ prerogative. Any success attributable to an organization depends wholly on the choice of its management styles and their grasp of administrative decisions and approaches to decision-making. Decision makers therefore, need to understand the concepts that ensure rationality and effectiveness in decisions; clarity in decision, time, work, and implementation and in follow-up evaluation needs to be taking into cognizance. Any style so adopted by management is seen to be the adhesive that binds diverse operations and functions together. It is the philosophy or set of principles by which the manager leverages on the workforce. Every organizations needs a better insight on the approach managers adopts in solving real life organization’s problems. This paper is a theoretical paper and accessed and explored related literature. The research demonstrated that there are series of management styles which influence decision making styles. Hence, the paper concluded that; management style suggestively affects the degree of decisions made by both individual employees and the management team in an organization.

Key words: Management Style, Decision making, Rational Model, Situational Management Style, Collaborative Management Style.

Author (s): 

Godwin Orakpowenri Orovwiroro & Barisua Fortune Nwinee

Abstract

Managerial economics as a field of study has become popular in recent times as a result of the increasing variability of business environments. Business organizations’ demand for tools that will aid them in making informed decisions in an environment characterized by change and competition has become increasingly prevalent. This study theoretically examines the relationship between managerial economics and business strategies formulation and identified eight different strategy methods that form the basis for smart decision-making processes for managers who aim to increase their profitability, market share and competitiveness. In establishing the link between these two concepts – both which are essential for a company to grow, thrive and compete in an environment of uncertainties in the business world, the study identified the critical elements managers need for achieving its goals and optimizing its financial success. Practically, this study would expose top managers on how to strategically plan organizational programs no matter how small because no organizational program is insignificant.

Effect of Chemical Activation on Coconut Shell Charcoal on the absorption of Laundry Waste

Author (s): 

Ernasari & Suparno

Abstract

In this study, we want to see the effect of chemical activation on coconut shell charcoal to absorb laundry waste. Chemical activation uses HCL and H2SO4 with concentrations of 10%, 15% and 20% for each activator. The research was conducted by activating coconut shell charcoal in chemistry and physics. Chemical activation is done by soaking the charcoal into HCl and H2SO4 solutions for 24 hours after which physical activation is carried out by oven-burning charcoal at a temperature of 200 oC for 60 minutes. Activated coconut shell charcoal mixed with laundry waste and then stirred using a magnetic stirrer for 60 minutes for the absorption process. After that the laundry waste from the absorption results tested by pH, TDS, Viscosity, clarity and detergent content. The results showed that for all absorption, the best clarity was obtained at a concentration of 20% in HCl and H2SO4 solutions of (37 and 57) Lux. The best impurity particle absorption was indicated by a concentration of 15% with pH values ​​of HCl (7.4) and H2SO4 (6.7), viscosity of HCl (110.93) N / m3 and H2SO4 (116.53) N / m³. While the maximum TDS value is indicated by the concentrations of HCl 10% (321) ppm and H2SO4 in concentration of 15% (309) ppm. While the results for the best detergent content are shown by 15% HCl concentration which is 0.4248 mg / L.
